    Do people actually buy these things? I bet it's pain in the ass to clean dust off of, with all the nooks and crannies. I would take something plain, square-ish any day. Especially for something I look at once a day when I turn it on, sometimes maybe more if I connect something to the front panel.

    $160? I think I'd rather spend the extra $100 on a better monitor since it's what you look at 99% of the time you use the computer... Or at least a better CPU/GPU combination.

    What is with all the cases for little kids? Its like they want to win the award for ugliest PC case. I mean, look at this thing. Why do they think people want overstyled gaudy crap? I know different strokes for different folks but do they actually test the market when they design these things or just say, "Ah, make it look like something out of Transformers."

    They need to take notes from Corsair and Lian Li. Sheesh.

    A seemingly proper design Nothing wrong with an enclosure that's not gaudy, is there? If you feel you need to attract attention with your PC case go for simple lighting or something. Not an enclosure that makes your rig look like a toy. I guess to each there own.

    Hmm, too many plastics "fins" if you will. I'd like a simple, minimalistic case really.

    Nice case, but too much going on design-wise. I want to see something different, this looks like LOTS of other cases already on the market.

    All PC Towers should have a handle, be smooth, sturdy, excellent airflow, front end I/O's.

    this case does most of those well except for handle and smooth possibly sturdy?.

    Looks rather like the HAF-X which I have. And of course people buy cases like this and why not? The build quality of my HAF is incredible and dust is no issue when you have dust filters... Imo this case looks perfectly fine, I like the industrial look and feel.

    Is that on top an HDD or an SDD?

    Why can they not add all of these options to a basic square mid-tower? It is a small minority that wants garish looks, but a large majority that wants all of the features.

    ^ Because if you were to do that you would still need all the little vents, filters and mesh included to get the same airflow. All you really then lose is the led lighting on the fans, the perspex sheet and the little nobly bits on top...

    I'm with some of you that believe that all the crazy visuals are kind of pointless. I'm all for handsom and extremely functional. I don't really want a PC that looks like something out of an FPS. That being said, it's still a nice case and I'd consider buying one ;)

    For a second the last picture made me think that the case was A LOT bigger than it really is.

    All I want is a nice tool-less case that is easy to work on, and no sharp edges inside to cut my knobby hands on. The case will hide behind my 27" monitor, so I really don't care what it looks like.

    Very happy with my wife's case (In Win "Alpha", white with pretty vector art plants on it, and lets not forget the sequins :-P). Bought it on sale 4 years ago and the 3 times I have had to open it up (routine cleanings, and a recent HDD failure) I have always been surprised at how easy it was to work on. Sadly I was not able to find the non-girley one a few years later when my case finally died in an unfortunate lan party incident; but the cheap $40 case I found (a thermaltake) is simple, black, and has plenty of space for HDDs and fans which is all I need :)

    They should have stopped this style of design with the coolermaster HAF series. I mean look at Apple. They are able to sell their crap BECAUSE of their slick simple designs.

    I'm currently using the Corsair 600T white version which is simple, has good airflow, and sturdy. THAT IS ALL a case needs. It doesn't have to look like I'm concealing a nuclear warhead inside the case.

    This case says I WILL RIP YOUR FACE OFF AND USE IT TO WIPE MY BUTT!!

    Interesting looking... yes.
    I can't imagine it being fun to clean once dust settles into all those nooks and crannies.

    While I agree with most of the naysaying about this case, the other side of the coin is that at least it does NOT look like a Mac Am or every other smooth, slick, minimalist case out there.

    Options are a good thing, people. Don't like it, don't buy it.
