A bit of refining to the design to go yet! It still looks great though.
What does having all those components so close together do to the case temps? Can't be good?
It's quite clearly a ridiculous shape for a case - zero benefits imho.
Still, congrats on getting it to all fit, I don't think I would even have bothered...
whats the point of having a case like that anyway?
It looks pretty cool and I think I might get one! I had a custom casing made to fit a drawer in my boarding house but now that I'm in university I won't be able to use that particular case, thus need a new one. Don't want anything big so its either this or something the size of a Lian-Li V600 I guess What's the price?
They look ok, but they feel a bit faddish to look at imo. Once the originality wears off, they're gonna be inferior to other existing cases in every way.
Sorry to say but that case was hideous. Definately for those that like to be tastelessy garish.
That case was the equivalent of a chav's vauxhall nova.
One thing I have learned from studying computer case air flow is: One big fan can effectively cool the whole case down well. I am sure I had one of those cases with in a week I can improve the air flow and the dynamics.
i don't get it. may as well buy a dell xps than try to be a fake modder.
The opinions look glum in the bit-tech neighbourhood
Fair play for getting it all to fit in the thing.
I completely agree. It is almost worse that a Chav Nova because it comes pre made like that. A chav nova comes in a poor state to start, then has bad mods added to it. Whereas this comes tacky in the first palce.
Would look better though if it changed the colour scheme or made it out of brushed aluminium.
yeah, the graphics give it a whole "ricer" kind of feel.
I agree on the aluminium. or maybe flat black. or OD green.
i would imagen the case temps would be redicolusly high being that close to each other .
it looks good and probley does perfom good as well,but id probley go for a tower fo the cooling optionns and room for a better air flow than an invastion case.
Not really keen on this case at all. But then, I'm a big fan of large, spacious cases where everything has a lot of room to breathe...
A couple random thoughtsa (I just woke up, so they may be very random),
When the pre-assembled version of the case was reviewed a few months back the review was very complimentry of the cable management job that the manufacturer had done. Appearently it can be done well, it just takes careful component selection and a lot of work.
Second, I find it interesting how we go out of out wat to mod basic beige boxes, but every time somthing comes out that's not a beige box, we complain that it's ugly. Remember that Lian Li spiral case? It was definatly somthing different, but nobody admitted to liking it.
Sometimes I think people just like to complain
couple of things
I assume those tabs kind of clip under the metal bracket, hopefully holding the card in place - but doesn't seem like a great idea
I guess this is structural, however it does seem like a bit of a pain, perhaps a movable bar would be more effective (PSU's can be rather heavy)
Well this case is supposed to be water-cooled, i doubt they expect for you to use a 6ft heatsink on it ....
But a bit short sighted it could be
Other then that, the case does look quite nice, but its supposed to be water-cooled - without that it seems rather pointless
Trial and error on components probably isn't a great idea, lord knows how many components you would end up returning - if you could - bad solution
Gotta replace the nova with corsa for todays boy racers, I think 9/10 boy racers have a corsa now in my home town. Though 3 yrs ago it would have been novas.
I don't like this case either, as someone said, once the novelty has worn off most people will be banging their heads against the wall for buying one.
