    Looks like it'd be much more conducive to modding than the 932.

    Either way, do NOT want.

    Thanks for pointing that out M7ck...I did read that bit when I 1st saw it, but didn't mention it in my original post.
    I just thought it would still be worth sharing, even if it's a concept/pre-production case. :thumb:

    It looks a bit..iffy.

    I bet the cooling's quite good amongst other things, but i'm not too fond of the fact that it seems monstrous already.

    If it was better styled then I might've looked at it more, but the king of Full towers remains to be Lian Li.

    Is it just me or do most PC case makers produce ass-ugly cases?

    My usual gripes have to do with companies like Thermaltake and Coolermaster, but even high-end makers like Lian-Li and Silverstone make do some ugly work.

    What's with all the glowy things and silk-screened writing? Random curves and hints of colour? Do these companies serve a perpetually 14-year old minded aesthetic? If someone wanted a case that glowed blue and had windows all over it, they can mod it themselves. Even if these companies needed to serve that market, why can't anybody save for a couple models, produce a classy case?

    I always have to point back to Apple. Love them or hate them, they produce a nice modernist design that's mostly too simple to be repulsive. If you wanted to add some blue LEDs to it, go for it. Personally, I just want a compact and unpretentious case that doesn't scream cheap or gaudy. I mean, maybe I'm just old fashioned, or I'm not 'X-treme" enough to appreciate all of this.

    I can't decide if I prefer it over my 932... although it makes me want to get it powder coated!

    It's Fermi compatible ...apparently those cards need uber-cooling!

    It's marginally less fugly than the original 932, but I still absolutely hate both the design and also the size of these things. And yeah it seems like this just is the fashion now. CM keeps making these gaming-things and Antec has taken a long downhill ever since the original P180 :D
