    Is it only me that sees 'open-air' cases - like this one - as intended for showcase builds...?

    i see potential for modding but at a 500$ pricetag that will mostly end at 800 when it reach my country it's far off what i would accept for a case that i would need to take a drill to...
    would also seen option for changing the ITX* area for something more "useful"...
    *(they could easy added mATX support with all that non-used space)

    and also something i noticed is that the "front panel" for the second system are on the rear... that doesn't seem convenient for a streaming system hiding all the connections and buttons to the side where it's hardest to reach even if it's the secondary system.

    Yeh I was disappointed in the second system layout. Why not have the left hand side as inverted ATX? They could easily have had the PSUs mounted "normally" in the bottom, at 455mm wide you could fit 3 in there!

    If this thing was 200 USD/GBP/EUR I might even consider it, just because it looks interesting. The fact they severely limited the options for the secondary system as well as that price rule this "case" out for me.

    Am I the only one who sees all these cases with massive panel gaps and thinks it just looks like something made out of scraps?

    I recently saw a youtuber building in an Inwin D Frame and all I could think was "..Where's the rest of the case?" Looks like someone pulled some PVC pipe out of the scrap bin and strapped some glass and a motherboard tray to it.

    Wow. Thats... something.

    It's definitely l33t, if nothing else.

    I think I must be losing touch with the youth of today.

    that's a good point it is really expansive, and also one big of a case

    i don't really agree, there's a lot of good one like from Antec and Hydra that are good choises also for desktop use

    is that I'm getting old, but I prefer more the substance compared to aesthetics instead

    yeah but.... it's a case... why not spend those money for a gpu or custom loop instead?

    performance first of all, if you have spare budget for aesthetics then ok
