    Clearly aimed at the Corsair crystal X460 and X570.

    A330:
    -Too bad they murdered the intake, I don't expect effective silent airflow when the front intake only allows for a small narrow opening at the top and bottom.
    -Too bad the I/O panel is on top, but that's mostly personal preference.
    -looks pretty good otherwise for the price

    A550:
    -Price is far more expensive, and I wonder how much of that is due to the RGB fans everyone would likely replace anyway..
    -Looks and Airflow look very good on this case, no complaints there.
    -That I/O panel just seems blatantly stupid to me. Every time you want to hit the power button you'll have to open the bracket and close it again, annoying, too bad.

    Can't decide on a clear winnen between the Crystals and Alpha's though, both have ups and down. Prices are good with black friday, but since none thick all my boxes I'll stare at my good 'ol CM 690 AII for a while longer.

    I like the design in line with new HAFs but sill waiting for a full tower with 2 (or even 3) front 200 mm fans and 2x200mm option on top to replace and upgrade my old HAF XM.

    CPU and GPUs are watercooled but i like big fans. :D

    Ha, not sure I like the patterning on the front & top panels - reminds me of a mock Georgian home!

    Cool looking case! But.. I still like my 570x better. Prefer the curves and overall design of the front and top mesh.
