    A 25 litre mATX chassis at a reasonable price! That could easily accommodate my rig with two AIOs (1x240 & 1x120). I'd be tempted to reverse the PSU fan and set the 120 AIO as an intake, with everything exhausting through the 240 AIO in the roof.

    The colour of the review sample is barf-tastic though ;)

    This might be a perfect replacement for my Sharkoon MS140 media PC - it has to fit in a very tight space (built in cabinets next to the TV). It's slightly less tall, but the USB is at the top...

    I don't know but an AIO in the 120mm fan mount looks like it might interfere with the motherboard, particularly on ones like the Asus Impact. Could one of the reviewers maybe let us know if this would be the case?

    Always hard to be sure with pictures as to the real colour, you have the camera and the monitor you see it on to deal with.

    Having seen it on three different IPS monitors and my tablet (also IPS), the colour is, without doubt on my part, 100% barftastic.

    Shame on you, Matt, for taking dodgy photographs! :lol:

    Oooh, this looks very nice! A nice compact mATX case that can take a big cooler and ATX PSU, a decent price, not terrible thermal performance. Colour me interested (just not that rank gold colour :))

    I seem to recall that the last Raijintek case that Bit reviewed was a fantastic blue colour that looked superb. Reckon I'd much prefer that to the disgusting gold :D
