    I think it looks very nice. As you stated it's a shame about the side panel having no lock and having both plexi and mesh on the window. The plexi and mesh does make a nice effect however. I really like the drive bays, makes the whole construction look like a giant heatsink.

    If it does not collect finger prints then why does the front on shot look like its covered in marks, possibly originating from fingers? :p

    It's terrible that they provide no spare covers for the stealthed CD drive cover. This must be a secret deal with Matsushita or Pioneer in an attempt to sell more CD/DVD drives! Not really, but it's still a bad decision on their part.

    If there are any marks, they're very minor and easily wiped off, unlike most aluminium cases where we usually have to use thermal grease remover to keep them clean.

    Would have been nice for it to be a little bit taller and have an extra holes in the top to fit a 2 x 120 radiator, I don't use the ones in my case but its nice to know they are there in case i want one.

    6063 is also well suited to lawn furniture and window frames. They should drop the manly "military grade" thing and go for "patio table grade aluminum" it is nice however to see companies using quality materials.

    I always love the BT case reviews and this one is no exception.

    Very nice case for the cash, if it had a removable MB tray however it would be a real winner for me.

    Personally I dont see is why the fingerprintability of cases is even a criteria for reviewing cases? Regardless of the case, whether it's plastic or metal your not going to be able to avoid it. Surley finger print's all over a case say's more in favour of than against - case fondlage is unavoidable.

    And anyway most of us have our computers under a desk, if you can see a few finger print's it's not even an issue. If one of my mates said "Check out all of the finger prints on your computer" I'd be thinking he was the evil twin of Monica from Friends!

    I was choosing between this Hiper Osiris and the Coolermaster CM590 , finally took the CM590 because the CM590 have already made two places on the roof to install two 140mm fans ( the Hiper Osiris have just one 120mm on the roof ), the motherboard tray looks stronger in the CM590 , the CM590 ( Stacker stile ) offer the possibility to choose wherever you want to install the optical DVD along the whole nine Front 5.25 Bays , and the CM590 have useful vents ready made under the CPU mobo to allow some fresh air to flow under the Mobo

    Material aside, it reminds me of a corner cutting copy of the Antec P182.

    Bought an Osiris for my I7 board (920 processor). Removable MOB tray would be nice, but it's not necessary. I have a DVD/CDRW and BlueRay in this puppy, a Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 Quiet CPU Cooler, and two hard drives. Mod cables on the PSU help but cable management isn't too tough. I like a case that doesn't vibrate a lot. I replaced the stock fans with Noctuas and they help with noise and cooling. This isn't a smash-up full tower, but it does the trick for a pretty high-end system. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
