Hmmm is the case really carbon fibre ? or just styled to make it look like its made from the stuff.

I have to confess in the photos it looks a bit cheap / tacky - granted the item may or may not look better or worse in photos....

Wow, I like it. :)  Basically what I hope to upgrade my rig to. 4gb more RAM, actual hard drives instead of two RAIDed laptop drives, somewhat liquid cooled...

I'll have to look into that case a little more... I love it if it's actually carbon fiber, and even if it isn't, it's still a slick-looking case. Judging by the cost, I'm assuming that it is. Honestly, I would have went with a Lian-Li over that, but it's all personal preference I guess.

Well done. :)

Its 2.5mm thick genuine carbon fiber. Look it up on tigerdirect.com or Ultra's website. As far as the pics go... I am far from a pro! LOL
