Anyone ever use this case?
This case has been around for awhile now, not even sure if they still manufacture it. I always felt it was one of the coolest cases around, and would be my choice once I settle down (I move alot for work, rarely anywhere for more than 2-3 years and travel for extended 2-3 week periods about 4 times a year on top of that) I always bring my box with me, and this seems like it would be a pain in the ass to lug around, but man it sure is cool.
If you're interested, you can find a mini-review of it (along with three other odd-looking cases) here.

about $230 on amazon new and its in stock, im thinking about snagging one just to have, for when I do want to use it. Cheaper than I thought it would be.

Great review, this is the only thing that concerns me:
The clearance for that video card is not promising. looks like there's about a half inch between the end of the card and the intake fan. I currently use a thermaltake spedo adavance, I have about 5-6 inches of clearance on my 5850.
Id hate to get it, and find out newer video cards cant fit. Depending on where the pci-e slots are of the video card (the 5850 has them on the end of the card) I would venture to say it wouldnt fit. i suppose that intake fan can be moved, its still cutting it close. Then again I dont know how big that card is they have in there, I am just assuming it isnt as long as newer cards out there today.
I like how the PSU is completely out of the way by putting it behind the mobo. Most cases that mount the PSU on the bottom its pretty much orut of the way too, but it can still be annoying if you need to fit your hand somewhere.
EDIT: then again maybe I was wrong as this review on amazon claims to have a 5850 in it:
"This case is amazing. It is huge standing 28 inches tall. It is deep with plenty of hand room to work around big parts. Such as A Zalman CPU Cooler which I put on the system I built and a 10 1/2 inch ATI Video Card fit easily into the case as well with no problems. I plan to build the second system into it in July since it holds another itx motherboard on the right side. The case is very well made and I watched a video of a 300 pound man sitting on it and was convinced. When I got it. I saw it was no lie. It is built strong with all aluminum. The fans don't make a lot of noise either I was surprised at how quiet it is. I am running a MSI 790fx-gd70 motherboard, phenom x4 quad core processor, 8 gig of gskill ripjaws ram, three 500 gig hard drives, a HD 5850 ati video card, a 850 watt power supply and a dvd writer. The Zalman Cooler keeps everything cool in the mid 30's to mid 40's. But it is mainly the great air flow of the case that is responsible for it. Fantastic Product. Would highly Recommend. But be sure you got butt enough to move it around cause it is a beast. It could be used as a intable, step ladder, Any number of things. LOL"
