    Link points to the forum itself, not to this thread. :)

    Looking good but it'll be expensive just like the SilverStone one...
    And I think the BT community wouldn't buy pre-watercooled cases, right? ;)

    It makes sence to make a case like this one after there heatpipe cases :clap: I have one problem with tha case though :nono: if you look at the front there are only 3x 5.25" and only 1x 3.5" drive bay. I don't know about you but i have more stuff in the front of my PC then that :duh:

    Nothing, sorry. It was a technical demonstration and I was literally just shooting through the booth on my way elsewhere when I noticed it.

    I love the side panel idea, but the dials on the front could look better I think, tasty case though!

    TBH, I think that side rad could be a lot more dense. From the looks of it, it only passes across the side panel 3 times, with a lot of space for turning. That could easily be tightened, giving more heat transfer.

    It's not. It's for cooling with silence.

    Shure you get the cooling built right in but you lose any chance of having a window in the case and look at the front, there are like no drive bays. I need at least 4x 5.25" and 1x 3.5". even then if I wanted a LCD display infront then I would need 5x 5.25" drive bays.

    what? there are 3 drive bays... i only ever need two - what the hell do you need four for?

    you can get LCDs that take up only 2 Drive bays, i'd hate to see what kinda LCD needs 5.

    and windows are pointless :p

    Hmm if they only could have hidden that 120mm radiator in the back inside the case it would look so much better. Dont like the lower part of the front either, otherwise it looks great.
