    The soundproofing material and little features aimed at silencing any installed computer puts this on my wish list. Love the hints of Orange and the hints of Silver - can't decide!
    Fingers crossed!

    I like the neat design. The color schemes are great.
    Also the rubber bracket is good idea, so I miss sound measures.

    I'm disappointed, I've been really looking forward to this chassis and be Quiet! products are normally excellent. Still, I'd love to see an Matx version.

    when it comes to the construction, i like the effort the put into sound dampening.
    the overall decoupling of noise sources and sacrifice of airflow.
    everything seems to be clamped down tight
    when it comes to the design, i like the squares on the side panels :dremel:

    The sound proofing. Having gone from an old Antec P180 to a "normal" air cooled case I can certainly notice a big difference, so that, imo, is it's best feature.

    Really like the black and orange, fairly subtle use of the colour.
    The anti vibration mounting is great also.

    I love the fact that they have implemented there products into a case, currently using some of there fans myself ( as well as a CPU cooler) and I haven't seen better quality else where. I am imagining that the padded bits of the case will stop any annoying rattles when gaming (when things get hot ;) ).

    I also think that the colour scheme is something new, not really seen anything like that except maybe cheap imitations from knock-off brands.

    Although noise isolation isn't really that new, I'm glad they have made there way into a dominated marked, mostly by coolermaster, zalman, fractal and thermaltake but they have a fighting chance if they keep the quality up and produce some kick-ass cases. Quite like that orange and black scheme over the silver.

    I really love the side blanking plates ,gives you a bit of gpu cooling with the bonus of a dust filter; and its the same both sides so no matter what way the case is orientated it looks the same ( add to this the reversible door hinges and hey presto) . Shame about the stats .

    +1 All we have is a few lines in the 'Performance Analysis' . Any low noise chassis reviews need to take this into consideration , from what I remember this used to be the case (unintentional lol).

    well...i appreciate the silence more that any feature of the case, of course the cooling is important but for me personally the silence comes first.

    It's gotta be the sound deadening for me and the inclusion of good fans as standard with a case. Also, the black orange thing it's got going on is quite pretty (not just outside but with the cable management holes and drive adapters)....aaaand it reminds me of playing Half Life: Uplink for the first time again.

    I wonder if the less than good thermal performance good be improved by swapping in some slightly more pokey fans like something from Noctua, the spec of the Pure Wings 2 units suggest they flow a good 20-40cfm less than equivalent sized fans. I know they're meant to be quiet but the case is going to help you out if you use more noisy fans anyway. I was also thinking about watercooling and just going for quick disconnects and an external radiator like the XSPC AX series with the optional stand for them.

    I like the design - spacious yet slim, stylish and fresh.

    I really like the sound dampening, quietness is an important feature for me. I am also a sucker for black and orange.

    I like how they have went for a quiet setup rather than one filled with areas for radiators which, for me is useless.

    It's alright, like it much more in the all black!

    Would really like to see it in a m-itx form though, small is sexy :D

    Considering my case is so old, I really like that it has dust filters... and noise filters, big fan of colour combination out of the 3 colours that would be my choice XD.
