    cooool :D you guys kicked that review out pretty quickly! kudos. just wanted to mention - the shop widget is linking me to the deepcool captain 360 AIO kit

    i like the look & value of this so much that if i didnt have a custom loop, id snap this up personally. i especially like that they added rubber feet to decouple your psu from the case, & removable air filters too. thats attention to detail.

    " BTW at first start-up always monitor CPU temps in your BIOS, that way you can see it being cool of overheat if you did not seat the cooling block properly (hey it does happen more often than you think). "

    Last year I've purchased the Cooler Master Seidon 120V v2 . I was so excited that I completely forgot to remove the plastic cover on it ! ( On my defense ... it did't have anything written on it ) ... So my computer was shutting down in like 5 - 10 minutes after boot up . I was so annoyed that I had to took it out and get a replacement ... then I saw the ****ty plastic cover on it and I was so embarrassed . Now my CPU stays on 35 idle and 43 max load. And keep in mind I am building systems for over 15 years.

    AMAZING!!!

    Thanks for the review Guru Hilbert! Thumb up!
    If I wasn't set up already, I'd go with this chassis!
    I like colored tubes !!! o_O

    In addition to the black chassis with green fluid, this chassis is available in white with blue or red cooling fluid.

    Mini questions: I read that there's a removable dust filter, which appear to be the filter under the power supply. Can we also remove (to clean) the front chassis meshes?
    Is most of the intake air flow comes from below the power supply, since there's no supplied fans on the front?

    Good review!
    I want it.
    Front with the spiral tubing makes me think of the T Virus tubes in the first resident vile movie.
    Ive had my Corsair Cardbide 500R white for almost 1 1/2 years. This would be a good summer project upgrade for my rig.

    Dimension Typo?

    Dimensions are listed in the article as 506x210x50mm twice. Which side is 50mm?

    I love the look of this case....just don't care for the price.... Too expensive for what it is and what it lacks...

    If you choose red/black theme, it wouldn't be too hard to pull off...

    Really nice concept and design, I just wish they hadn't splashed GAMER STORM on the front. What is it with high end kit being marketed like the sole demographic is 14 year old boys?

    But like I said its a great design and concept, if Corsair or NZXT ever come out with something similar for grown-ups I'll definitely pick one up

    Yes it's splashed all over the front, you can't miss it :confused: Hint, it's at the top left.

    OK 'Splashed' is perhaps an overstatement, but it's still noticeable and a disappointing design choice.

    Just wish that if they insist on giving product lines juvenile names they'd restrict it to a model number factory stamp on the back.

    Guess I should be thankful they didn't crowbar 'XTREME!!!' somewhere in there too (unless they're saving that for an all metal variant..)

    Who knows, maybe im just old and out of touch :)

    I'd say the green spiral thing is more garish.

    There's definitely a market for hardcore/watercooled systems that are discreet and stylish.
