    A few slabs of metal sheet, powder-coated black, some hinges, and a glass plate. Et voila, meet the master frame 700 open-air case that can transform into a testbench....

    And a billion RGB lights! And no dust filters! And the chance to sneeze into your PSU! Insects and small children caught in the fans!

    Let's appreciate still the courage to do something different.
    Yeah, it has the flaws everyone mentioned above.
    But they really thought out if the box. Literally.
    So, maybe start from there or from scratch and maybe, maybe we will have something different than the traditional computer box.

    Well, there is a computer hardware nomenclature, what can you do?
    Name it differently? Well, what name can we give this "thing"?

    its a type of bench really. if you want to call it a case you're really skirting liberties with what a case actually is.

    went in expecting a case came out with wtf , just no noise in my face and every part exposed to dust? pluse RGB bs? even if that can be turn in to "actual" it must have terrible sound damping and awfull vibration cause it probably has moving part all over

    Bout the only thing I see I like is how gpu is mounted

    Interesting case and I believe it will please many out there, but IMO I think the next big thing to focus on for case makers is to figure out a way to get sub $500 'computer case desks' out there into the mainstream.

    Right now the only ones that make them like Lian Li charge a stupid amount of money for them. If they manage to make a simple desk that's built well enough and can house a custom pc setup with ease all for around $500 or less, they'll make a killing.

    I'd surly buy one myself as right now with all the ones out there ATM being over a grand easy, I've been thinking about creating and building my own to sate my 'case desk' desires...

    ed kemper decided to do things out of the norm, unfortunately he wasn't appreciated either.

    Going by the contents list on the carboard box in the pics, this doesn't come with any fans. It doesn't come with any of those bladed things that whir around and push air either....

    EDIT: I like the look of it but I don't live in a hermetically sealed environment.

    That's a bit of an extreme example, but I catch your drift.

    This looked somewhat interesting until I realised that the power cables are not connected to the PSU. With all the missing cables included this would look like a mess. On the wall. For everyone to see.

    I want one, not to have on a wall, but I think it will fit perfectly under a desk, screwed on the underside.

    Wait so you sit that high up above your monitor and look down?

    God, if you take anything more literal, you might not get a needle wedge in between your buttcheeks..

    this obviously not for people want a pc-case, but i think some DIY-er probably wanting this
    basically its case-frame, its probably better marketed as case-frame rather case
    if priced good, i think it will sell okay

    I can see the attraction but its a bit high maintenance for me with all the dust I guess it would be nice laid flat and placed in a desk build with filtered intakes
