    It looks good but I will never buy a case with a door on the front ever agian. I like the style of the previous case better and would probably take that over this one.

    yuck

    Looks like a toy and has very little features to warrant the incredible 180 pounds price tag.

    Disapointing case but nice review, as usual. (edit: the review, not the disapointment :))

    Coolermaster lost it when they lost the ATC line. Then everything looked clean and the quality was high. The last CM case I bought wasn't up to the standard I'd expect for £100+ kit.

    I believe there's been a move of employees from Coolermaster to Silverstone... Which shows in design. If you've got that much money to spend on your case you're not the kind of person who wants something with that design.

    Buy Silverstone... that's the end of it.

    I really don't like the look of it, but then again, I have never liked the looks of Stackers.
    Otherwise, nice review, but £180? What a rip-off.

    Looks like it's definitely a love it or hate it type of case :)

    As for me, I'm not into cases that you can't easily stack a pile of paperwork on top of when you run out of desk space. So minus points for the angled top...

    155mm x 350mm for the base with HDD cage.

    155mm x 520mm for the base without HDD cage.

    Thats without a Motherboard fitted and measured from the motherboard tray to the inner edge of the plastic fan holder.

    As someone has already said it seems to be a wow or yuk response in the main.
    When I first saw it I did a double take and lingered on it for a while. Then I read the review here - damn good review it is to - and I just keep coming back to the thing. I'm pretty close to going for it now but am seriously looking at alternatives as you have to at this price level.

    Looked at Lian's new range but there is nothing new there if you see what I mean.
