    Looks like an awesome itx case! Definitely planning on getting one if they make it available in white as well. :vader:

    Where's the mATX love? All the latest mobos and cases I see are either full ATX or tiny barebones ITX based. Most existing mATX cases are way too large to be worth it, and I need more expansion and features that are always missing on mITX boards/cases.

    I still feel like no one's moved the mATX enclosure forward since the Temjin TJ08-e case in 2011. I haven't seen a case that's as configurable, small, light, and yet still sturdy and accommodating of tons of full size hardware to fill a mATX board with several pci-e expansion slots in addition to a GPU, but it's aging and doesn't account for the newest cooling and peripheral designs. Their "update" of this case is way too bulky and large in comparison.


    *edit* Actually looking at this case's dimensions, it's considerably larger than the TJ08-e and you're still stuck with a tiny mITX board...I don't see the point unless you can shave off at least 50mm from each dimension, it's been done on other cases that can still fit full size gpus and PSUs, etc. Sound dampening material doesn't need take up much volume, sound absorption more density based.

    Couple of mATX cases, compared to this one.
    Corsair Carbide 88R (width -5mm, height +34mm, depth+36mm)
    Cooler Master Silencio 352M (width-3mm, height+34mm, depth+41mm)

    Fractal makes some beautiful functional cases, got the R5 for Christmas and it's by far the best case I have ever owned.

    I'm almost tempted to get one of these to replace my BitFenix Prodigy. Love the Prodigy, but.... it's a BITCH to do anything in. Not to mention cable management is... well.... difficult, to say the least.
