My exact thinking.
I tend to lean towards Aluminum cases myself, and anything under $250 I consider quite reasonable.
Much like a lot of folks here on HWC I like to tinker with different products.
So I thought I'd give this case a try.
I had pre-ordered the case a while back.
Yes, I was one of the people that had it ordered from NCIX
As for the H70, I happen to have one kicking around (among others...
along with different varieties of fans & cabling)
I'll try to fit one in there and take some photos.
I'll also try an H50, D14 (if it fits), Megahalems, as well as a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ for those that are interested in seeing if "X" heatsink fits in the case.
True, the looks of the case may not necessarily be to everyone's liking, but I think it has its charm.
I am working a couple of 24hr shifts at the hospital the next few days, so I may not update until sometime next week, however I'll keep this posting updated as I can.
