    1. It takes up a lot more space than necessary
    2. It makes installation and operation more difficult
    3. Can't put anything on top of it
    4. Looks like severely choked for airflow, with only those tiny notches on the sides for intake.
    5. Front panel easy to scratch if something drops on it ( a vertical one would not since you can't drop something on a surface which is vertical )
    6. Good luck finding a replacement if anything breaks from it !
    7. Probably very expensive due to the unusual shape

    Please tell me one real ADVANTAGE that this shape offers, other than the "this looks cool !"

    This is one of the computers LGR will review some time in the future and will describe as the pinnacle (/pyramid) of the RGB craze.

    1, 6, and 7 can be said of most cases that aren't boring. 2 and 4 can be said of far too many "gamer" cases. 5 can be said of pretty much any case that uses thin metal or acrylic, regardless of vertical walls. Most people who flaunt their prized PC don't put stuff on top of it. So, although I totally agree with all your points, this is hardly any different than any other case on the market meant to be aesthetically pleasing, it's just a little more extreme in terms of "form over function".

    Keep in mind, there are people out there who will ream you out for "bad" cable management, even in situations where it won't affect airflow. RGB is found everywhere and does absolutely nothing to improve anything. Basically any PC with a custom water loop, regardless of the case it is in, will be more of a PITA to work on than this case. So again, I don't disagree with you, but why is this where you draw the line where you ask "why"?

    The "advantage" is you get to have an Alienware area 51 case without paying a few thousand extra for the name. It's pretty similar in looks and layout, just trades the alienware design for tempered glass and metal. Not my favorite aesthetic either, but much more appealing than the actual pyramid up above :confused:

    Why do you people even comment on this stuff. OMG its got RGB! NOOOOO! Its a triangle! NOOOOO! Where is my old plain old cream colored Packard Bell computer case,that's what I need! Something that looks like complete ass! I applaud companies for trying something new or innovating.. Its a lot better than the rehashed crap we get in movies and games.. Yes, I can't wait for the new Call of duty game. What is it COD 47.. Give me a break!
