    Hmmm.... I quite like that.

    I wish X58 based mITX boards were available.

    Probably a relatively high-end gaming rig for LAN parties etc. I love SFF so I'd have one just as my primary gaming rig tbh.

    Tiny main PC - I mean, you can get a good GFX card in and a Core i5 750 so you'd be all set, then...

    I just built a gaming pc from the winnings of a bit-tech comp using a SG05 case, Zotac m-ITX 775 board and a GTS 250, watercooled with a H50 great little gaming pc for the girlfriend.
    As such i will be looking at this case in the coming months to replace my machine, making lan events easier, only concern for me atm is there seems to be no where i could fit a water cooling kit like the H50.

    This looks absolutely brilliant, perfect for those folks that have limited space or don't want a case on the floor.

    Tasty!

    My brother wants a new computer to go with his iMac 27". I might have to base the build around this case...

    if you look at the top of the 180mm fan, there appears to be 4 holes allocated for the 120mm fans. you'd most likely be able to mount the 120mm rad/fan here. if not, use cable ties to tie the rad to the 180mm fan, kinda ghetto but it'd do the job.

    Ah this would be awesome for lanning, I wonder if it's possible to get proper watercooling kit inside it...

    I haven't use a SFF case since the days of my MSI mega 180 which in itself was rather sweet and is now being used by a friend and still going strong. I did find it used to run rather warm and would be interesting to see just how cool and also quiet this case could remain with even a medium range graphics card like a 5770 or 5850 compared to it high end brethren.

    It certainly looks the part and is definitely far better ventilated than my old MSI box. In the article it is said that it can take 2 x 2.5" SSD's which is all well and good if you are looking for a higher end product, but they could just as easily be 2 x 2.5" laptop drives.

    ...so do the Shuttle ones, but with dedicated PSU's (and dedicated mainboards.)
    This could be a good alternative though.
    What do you use your's for? Housing a PC?

    You get one DVD-Drive, a harddrive, upto two SSD's, a full Oomph graphicscard, an appearently not too small cooler and a PSU in there, what more do you need?

    I love how the big selling feature on this was fitting a large card and none of the pictures show it with a large GPU.

    I love SFF but after building Project FEAR (Using a TT Lanbox Lite) and dealing with cramped space (didnt help I shoved a full water cooling system inside) I think I will stick with Mid Size or Larger. ^_^
