    Nice to see the trend for ugly-as-sin styling is still in vogue (vomits)

    4 water cooling holes at the back? That makes this case twice as good as any with just 2!

    Obviously you guys have lost the knack when it comes to cable tidying. Back in my day we didn't have no holes to hide it all away in! We just pinned it back and called it a decoration.

    Yeah, this case misses the mark in so many ways...

    That is one unholy mess of cables. for the price you'd at least expect some sort of cable management.

    "instead of merging into smoothly it.", "This allows easy air to easily flow in and out the case", and "it feels as though this a case" come on guys, you're better than this.

    The case also appears to have 8 expansion slots, which is a tick box most other cases miss off, which I wish they wouldn't.

    This makes my HAF 932 look sleek and attractive by comparison. Now I don't own the ugliest case around. Hurrah!

    The point about this case not having modern cable management features is valid. But I think the photo exaggerates this to the point of being hideous because you made no attempt to organize it at all. Not a single cable tie in sight. Are they really that hard to use?

    Yay, another bog-ugly case with mediocre cooling.

    Saw it at the shop the other day. As good as the airflow might be, it's just incredibly ugly. Trust me, it's even uglier in real live, the pictures don't do it justice. The design of this case is a pile of FAIL In Win.

    I think the guys who actually design cases for a living got together one weekend, got drunk, drew some ugly cases on napkins for fun and then somehow they made a bet about whose company could sell the most of these ugly, drunk drawn cases... :duh:

    C'mon now, you guys didn't even try to tidy those cables! A few sticky pads and cable ties and you could hide all the cables in the section under the DVD drive. A simple cut to measure piece of thin black card or paper would stop the cables being visible through the holes. Or get out the dremel to cut a few holes to hide stuff behind the mobo.
