The cooling performance data is missing
Still, it looks pretty good. Not sure about the glass though, but I have a couple of sheets of black anodised alu, so I'd make a new lid and sit my monitor on it; if it could accommodate a more substantial cooler.
Cheers - added now
When you have such good cases as the Fractal Design Node 202, Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Shift Mini-ITX, Silverstone Raven RVZ01/02's to name but a few all costing less (some much less) - I fail to see how they can justify that sort of price tag for what is in point of fact an inferior product.
This is so close to being the perfect niche product. If they just adjusted the dimensions so it was a 3U case that fit in a standard server rack, I'd buy this in an instant. Sell optional server mounting rails and I'm sure there'd be a decent market of people (like me), who want a 3U chassis that can hold standard GPUs.
Right now the only solution is to get something like the Fractal Node 202 or Silverstone FTZ01 and just stick it on a server shelf. This has the drawer pull-out feature that would mean I could actually work on the system while in the rack. With a little cable loom I could even get away with not unplugging anything.
Maybe we can convince them to make a v.2 of this with these small dimensional tweaks.
Interesting for sure, but it lacks good cooling-options. You can't even fit a 120mm AIO watercooler in there allthough it's that big.
I'm fedup with large towers and wouldn't mind a ITX desktop but the lack of space for a cooler is annoying.
