    "At a price of 199 USD, the AC300W is available now." - Page 1

    And then the rest mentions 99€...

    If I would be in the market for a case, my priorities would be Airflow>Cable management>Usefull features>Design. So this case just doesn't cut it for me.

    Yes, that was a typo and already fixed. MSRP should hover at 99 USD.

    Nice review as always (+ for dbA measurements but it would be nice previous results from other case reviews were in the same table for comparison). Looks like a neat case for Gigabyte fans :) I'm aching to see what MSI brings to the table.

    I am a bit confused about the noise levels part of the review. So you did not measure the noise of the case itself with everything running in it, as it wasn't closed. (at least looking at the picture) Also one paragraph headline mentions Graphics card noise levels, and then the FAN noise levels are mentioned. So what does the measurment table actually shows ? Noise of the two FANs with an open case without the CPU and GPU FANs?

    I got a good laugh from the top of the dB chart :D.

    And from the bottom :) Rustling leaves must make more noise than a quiet studio room.

    dB chart is all nice and stuff but i miss one huge detail... what about the thermals??
    Airflow doesn't look good with that very closed off front panel. Chasis might be "silent" but that's usueless if it means that your components are frying in there.
