    Looks neat, but an utterly poor use of space utilization. The motherboard and graphics card are tucked into one-third of the case, not unlike the DAN case, but then the other 2 thirds is devoted for a possible custom watercooling setup. And then, as usual, hard drives are tucked into another corner as an afterthought.

    Watercooling is fine an dandy and all, but that's the beauty behind a custom setup--you can build it around the case, not the other way around. I'm progressively seeing more and more cases catering solely around watercooling, when air coolers are still a valid, if not better, option.

    I'm all for clean, sharp builds and LED's--and I also understand this may be marketed towards the hyper-enthusiast, but this trend towards form-over-function is getting a bit out-of-hand.
