    Gorgeous to be honest, wouldnt mind seeing if the case comes alone though.

    Only one thing, they should have put a flowmeter instead of/alongside the fan meter

    Pretty sweet! (but imo it does seem to be a sort of "unpractical" shape)
    I like it, but I would'nt buy one... :p

    Wow, looks gorgeous imo, I wonder if they'll ever ship a basic 'stripped' chassis, which you can customise with your own skin/paint job and components, they'd sell like hotcakes

    That case is the dyson of computer cases, its ugly, inpractical, and a bit silly.

    Why does that make it the 'Dyson' of computer cases? Dyson vacuum cleaners are, admittedly, pretty ugly, but they are hugely effective, well designed, very practical and very ergonomic, which is why they have become the best sellers in the UK at least, if not the world. James Dyson has become a billionaire off the back of his design, so it must be doing something right.

    I'd say this case is the ANTI-Dyson of computer cases - beautiful but impractical vs. the Dyson, which is ugly as sin but very practical.

    It's sitting behind me here at the office and I have to say, it looks great. A bit crazy but oh so desirable.

    i dont care how impractical they are, i want the X shaped case in matt black. no lights either, just a big black X that hums with processing power and coolness.

    maybe it might help me shed my Geek image if i put some of my wh40k figures around it too....

    now, i just need some freinds to show it off to...

    Looks like WMD got stuck in a machine...

    Not bad, but too impractical to take off.

    Discussing computer cases on a forum is a step in the right direction....lol :D

    Just think; its all land fill any way, in 10 years time it will probably look even more rediculous when your computer is the size of a ciggarette packet.

    It's always nice too see case designs that is really different. Kind of cool idea but doesn't seam to be to much room left in there. I can see they have mounted the HD in a 45 degree angle in one of the "legs". I thought I read some where that it's only recomended to mount HD in vertical or horizontal position, as the gravity will affect the spinning disks if you mount it diagonal and reduce the life of it. Anyone else heard about this?

    One hell of a case but upgrading would be a nightmare, though who cares about that when it looks so sweet.... if only they sold an "case only" version. The cases itself is nicer than the original Isotope 3XS system and the reservoir in the front with the orange and blue LEDs looks great and has one hell of an aura...

    Besides being absolutely gorgeous, I think it has some great little ideas. I love where the psu is mounted. Cables are guaranteed to reach everything and they don't have to be 3 feet long. And I think isolating the hard drives like that with their own cooling section is great too.
