    Offhand, I haven't a clue as to what "Dimensions (mm) 220 x 580 x 535mm (W x D x H)" implies. I never have memorized the different specs of case sizes. So is this a mid-tower or full-tower case?
    For the 1st time ever, Tt has actually come up with a feature that I like and should be immediately added to every case I know of, i.e., an extruded side panel to accomodate the wiring. I've tried everything I know, to no avail, to get the right side panels to fit properly on all of my cases, with all the wiring behind them. Every single one of them bulge out letting any stray dust to be intaken. The worst ones I have with this problem are two Corsair cases. A 700D and an 800DW. This is irritating beyond all reason, especially with such expensive cases. The inside of the cases appear immaculate as to the wiring that is almost entirely hidden. But the sides bulge outwards and sometimes pop open, scaring the crap out of me. Tt has evidently solved this problem. I can no longer hate on ThermalTake. Just dislike all of their products with a passion. There is a difference.
    Other than that, this case appears to be Tt's copy of CoolerMaster's HAF-X. Whatever size this case is, it's as ugly as my HAF-X, but at least nobody would be fool enough to steal something as ugly as either of these cases.

    The HAF 922, and I assume all other HAFs, have an bulge on the side panels for wiring. Not saying that CoolerMaster is the first to use a bulge, just that they've done it before Tt.

    I want a power coat too! Can I chose the power??

    As beautiful as Antec Dark Fleet! What are the test groups that manufacturers are using?! Blind or tasteless people?! Must be near-sighted because I don't want to offend blind people with pairing them with this ugly thing

    My tastes seem to have broadened with age. I'm halfway through a mATX build (got the system up and running, although I'm upgrading frmo 2600K to 2700 when it arrives), but am still waiting for a couple ofparts for my cooling loop (my first WC build) and the money for the GPU. Next year I have an SR-3 build planned. Somewhere down the line I also want to build a custom case out of a dark hardwood. Not sure yet, might go for oak and darken it if I can't find dark oak in sheets. I have no idea what I'll be putting in it yet. Only thing I know is that if I'm going to be building a dual-Xeon system the custom case will be a budget build :)

    It's a shame I wasn't paying attention in woodwork class all those years ago! :D

    Just out of interest, why does the title say RX-I and throughout the article it's referred to as the AX-I?
