    Beautifully designed case. Thoughtful drives placement, ample top grill space for extra exhaust fans as well as 3 front air intakes, should keep things nicely cool. A case I would go definitely for and well priced as well.

    Nice review Hilbert, however, I question the ability to install a 3600mm radiator as stated on Page 6.....

    You just push it in until it clicks. No biggie.

    If HDD tray is removed then what? We gain space for -at least- 1 more HDD ? (meaning max 4?)

    Because from screenshots can't get this clear. With tray are slots for 3 you say (though it seems like 2 on the left,2 on the right..)

    I reallllly like the look of this case and would love to spruce up my current build with this case, but dunno if I could stuff the predator 360 in it. My TT Core v31 is around the same size as this case and I can fit it up front due to placing the fans inside the front panel.

    Since I couldn't do the same with this case, it would have to go up top, and since the predator rad is very thick, I dunno if it could fit :(

    Gorgeous case! However, I have 9 HDDs (only 2 are SSD) so definitely a no-go for myself. Too bad, because I think it's damn sexy!

    Have a feeling that pictures do not do it justice and must see in RL to appreciate it, esp with the tempered glass.

    The cable hiders knightmare, seriously the first image shows it all lite up and looking nice but it has to be using magic I see no power cables anywhere.

    Photoshop is definitely the modern day magic power..

    Making all of our celebrities look superhuman and the rest of us to feel badly about ourselves since its inception lol

    what are you talking about?

    If this is the photo you are speaking of:

    http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?ct=...dmin=0a8fcaad6b03da6a6895d1ada2e171002a287bc1

    Then you do not understand how this case works?

    Power supply has all power going from it and to the back of the case, from there it pops through various holes and connects to various things (such as the fan power board on the back). You can see this by looking at where the power connection would typically be for the motherboard, you'll see wires there, coming out of one of the "holes"

    Are you just unfamiliar with cable management?

    Look harder ? Everything is powered up and connected as it should be, aside from using an IGP.

    They should have covered up the gaps where normaly a closed panel snaps into place, kinda looks ugly with the light shining thru those little gaps.

    Don't see the point of cases like this unless it's sound proof or something near that! My 300R still does it's job for half the price!

    Sorry, probably should have clarified.. my post was more in response to Laughing Ma in general relating to Photoshop.

    the photos shown for this case imo don't look photoshopped necessarily.. could have mentioned that.
