    I think that looks really cool, but also it looks like it should be hovering twenty feet in the air and hunting Tom Cruise.

    I'm not sure I'd have it in my house for that reason.

    I think it has been hit by several ugly sticks.

    Antec finally make something that's not a pile of plastic and you poo-poo it into the ground? :lol: In my opinion, it has a lot of potential. -Of course, I've designed a lot of forward-stanced, open backed cases.

    I loved the Antec Skeleton, all those years ago
    https://bit-tech.net/reviews/tech/cases/antec-skeleton/1/

    and I quite like this Torque... it's an odd, unique and quite diverse design (excluding the Cougar afroementioned which is I think the only other similar )

    If you like this you're gonna buy it... simple as that :)

    I'm just struggling to see the value in it. The Cougar is £249 with 3x fans included, the Antec £349 with none... Both nearly identical spec wise. You're paying £100 more for no fans and red paint.

    I wouldn't mind an open case like this on my desk but I simply can't trust the cat not to stick a paw in there and ruin everything.

    I mean from personal experience open air cases seem to trap less dust. In fact I'm starting to think the whole dust trope and sales pitch is a conspiracy now if anything.
