    I would love an all white chassis, chuck a few white LED fans and maybe a white CCFL with a side window or a small amount of mesh at the front and i think it will look really clean

    Oh good, cubes!
    If you're going with low cubes you might as well go open space...
    Bwah how I hated them.

    No, it will make it look like a Mac. If you want to be pretentious, just buy a Mac.

    Awesome. I think the computer enclosure market has been stagnating as of late. Though that trailer on their site is pretty annoying and nonsensical. You're a case company guys, sheesh.

    I hope their cases have better aesthetics than Coolermaster's (and other manufacturers) I fuggin' hate the HAF, I do however really like the Scout.

    ^^

    I'm looking forward to seeing their products.

    I hope so haha we'll see how good my Taiwanese contacts are ;)

    I removed the prices - they were too early to quote and apparently I shouldn't have done. The company has yet to even get back a tooling sample so I can agree that things could change wildly yet so it's not good to give our readers an inaccurate representation.

    No, it will make it look white.

    +1 to a white version. Do Sapphire make any white PCB motherboards anymore? That would just look god-like.

    Im very excited by this. Fresh startups are great but this is even better, they are likely to start with a good product and become better, rather than learning fresh.

    I just hope they won't continue the "garish case" trend, but they probably will... Could we please get some serious competition for Lian Li!

    I shall look on with interest... after all Fractal Design were new recently (I think?) and the R2 is supposedly good - or so I hope having just bought one!
    Nice of them to name it after you :)

    Fractal Design aren't *that* new, at least not in their home country Sweden.

    As for BitFenix, sounds as if they tried to put some of their favourite things in the name: Bit for bit-tech (obviously :)) and Fenix for Marcus Fenix (someone must really like Gears of War). I guess spelling it Phoenix is just too oldfashioned. :p

    Bottom line for me is AIRFLOW.

    If they make thermally superior cases (ie on-par or better then the ANTEC 900) and a few euros cheaper they have my money.

    Hint BIG quite fans :D

    This can hopefully be good, remember it was ex Coolermaster employees that started up Silverstone and hopefully these guys will be just as successful.
