    I know ThermalRight for their good thermal conductivity.

    i was rather pissed off when i saw that, as i had just finished designs for a similar idea for my HTPC i was planing on surprising you guys with this summer hoilday.

    forget the 120's kids - put one of those coolermaster squirrelcage fans from the original stackers in there.

    or one of those monster 250mm slow fans. on the top - drawing air out.

    I wonder how're they planning to deal with cpu sockets in different locations on different motherboards. If it only supports certain motherboards that'd be kind of pointless. I like the look of the full tower though (go back and get more pictures please :thumb: ).

    Well that design is a bit overboard... I figured a heatsink taking up a single side panel would be better than taking up four sides of the case.

    that does seem to be a fairly glaring flaw... and any removable modules for different boards type system will just kill the ability to transfer the heat....

    As others said, the flaws on this case outweight the good. Dust, Cuts, Damage, Weight, and high risk of spills.

    if they put like a light over lay of metal around it to protect it, that would be better.

    you could mount the motherboard on an adjustable tray so it always lines up with the heatsink... this case is so far out and cool I just have to have one. I wonder how much they will cost. I'm guessing alot but it may be worth it.. although the jokes about compensating will be excruciating :p

    I can't see that being put into production, a combination of dust, fragility, expense and lack of adaptability to different component setups and locations. I wouldn't even use one myself if it were free, it'd be too much hassle to look after!

    Cost! A ThermalRight heatsink costs 100NZD and that is minuscule compared to this.

    i dont know about too much, perhaps its not too much, just unecessary surface area. though there is alot of metal to conduct heat into, great so long as you can get rid of it via convection or something.

    thing is, for cooling a fin, its best to have a turbulent flow of air over it. if its a laminar flow it cooling effect is reduced, but long fins are best.... if the flow rate is right it'll have more chance of becoming turbulent at some point along the fin.

    i have the calculations some where.

    I have a cat and he would definetly brake that case in like 2 minutes of me getting it home :D also how could you mod it, there is nothing to mod on it :wallbash: it has a front and a back to it and nothing else :wallbash:

    well all of you guys talking of cuts and fragility and dust - go have a peek at thermalrights website.

    apparently, there are outer panels - the gifreakingnormous heatsink is actually on the inside of the case.

    Well considering this was at last years Computex, I never saw this come to the market so I guess it didnt work to well.
