    Over-engineered much? I'll wait and see what the retail versions are like, but that doesn't appear to show the same quality we're used to seeing from Coolermaster (eg. ATC201/210, Wavemaster). :sigh:

    ^ agree ever since the split with ATC CM cases have been lacking. Although this doesn't look that bad, if they got rid of the hand rails it would look quite funky.

    hopefully it'll have most of the things that makes the 830 such a wonderful case to use. (removable tray, easy changeover to other configurations)


    the 'gutter' will probably be ripped out by most, and the drive cages are a bit of a disappointment to those of us that prefer to use removable 5.25" modules. the bottom mounted PSU is nice to see, hopefully they can do like the Antec P180 and put a vibration damping cage around it.

    Personally I think that the use of only 5.25" slots with a moveable cage was the best thing to happen to the full-tower cases.

    I like their quality, but personally I don't like the design...

    wow that case looks awful, it way too complex, and the side handles look a bit funny... ah well, guess not everything is perfect

    Me too

    This case looks interesting, I like the handles but not the door (it looks nice but I don't like doors on cases) or window (don't have a window above my car's engine, don't need a window above my CPU).

    I like the case it looks quite good except for those rather funky looking handlebars :/

    Looks like the perfect base for a mod I had in mind (saves me a lot of acrylic cutting) but most of it would disappear, including those handles. Its not a bad idea to put them on the base but why on top as well?

    Looks a bit like a mini-van with those roof rack bars. I wonder if Thule will bring out a compatible luggage box or bike carrier.

    maybe to carry it with? - they are handles :D

    :hehe: sounds like something the user "nature" would say (though I'm usually more perplexed by his posts) (which used to be followed by a request for Bindi to change his avatar) :rolleyes:

    Looks like they've borrowed some ideas from the Mac Pro case... (the HDD caddy/bay efforts...)

    If it's well built, it could be a good case. If they use too much plastic, however... it's gonna be flimsy as hell and more of a liability than an asset. (Hopefully something like the two-material three-ply Antec used for the P180?)

    Not really sure I like those rails on the top and bottom, though...

    I'm officially sick of window panels. The case looks fine, but the sooner the side windows goes the way of the dodo, the better.
