    Do NOT want. Exterior's too messy.

    I liked it. I really did. Then I saw the price tag.

    WTF?!

    So Silverstone really think ppl are stupid?! A case that expensive with the exterior that ugly.. it is pure madness! But not the madness I like...

    Too big, annoying trend of upside facing motherboard-tray, awkward holes for the fans in the side-panels (the two in the middle!).

    2mm anodized aluminum is nice tho.

    Nice case. Looks extremely well built and I like the upwards facing motherboard tray, although I'd ask if airflow is that important in a case designed to let you watercool everything.

    Then we get to the price. They can "eff right off", no way I'd pay anything like that; I don't care how nice it is.

    I'll let some muppets with more money than sense buy them, and then see if I can blag a cheap TJ07 off one of them. ;)

    I was reading thorough this and thinking , oh yeah very nice, then I got to the bit about the price. I know it's extremely well built but for that amount I can't see to many people rushing out to buy one. Oh well, something else to go on my list for Santa.

    that's a great case, love that they've pulled out good features of FT02 and put it into TJ cases. will no doubt performe.

    styling isn't for everyone, but i personally can't see any way around the two holes for motherboard area intake.

    Too cluttered, and I don't like the cheapo b-class sci-fi flick feel it has about it. Totally lacks the simplistic style and elegance Silverstone cases usually have.

    And the price tag is frankly ridiculous, I can't see anything that would elevate it above TJ-07, 800D and a few select LiLi cases at 300€ mark.

    No thank you. Not for that price and certainly not for that design. I dont care if it can fit 10 rads, but that just makes no sense to me. Its like having a server room.

    I do not like like large cases anymore (i have a LILI PC70 bought in 2002) and its f***ng huge. I want to go smaller but not have yet seen a single 'smaller' case since then, what can hold some rads without cutting the whole case in pieces.

    Price aside, this case looks amazing - until those holes in the side panel. Why can't it use the vents in the bottom section to supply the airflow? I don't mind taking the side off to clean the filters (that reminds me - its been a while).

    The front and top look amazing.

    Sigh!

    What could have been a gorgeous case isn't. Shame.

    9 5.25" external bays? WHY? :wallbash:
    Who uses more than 1 or 2 optical drives these days?

    WC reservoirs and extra hard drive mounting. The bottom hard drive bays can be moved into the 5.25" area - it's actually more flexible in some respects, but yes, completely filled it would look like a dogs dinner.

    It's definitely on my "lottery win" list. I'm already looking at the modding potential, I love the look of the case, just wondering if it'll make an appearance in the next batman movie lol. Reckon theres gonna be a few nice mods based on this soon!
