Dear god that is small! I like it! I would use some of those Noctua LNA or ULNA adapters and slow those down to keep those fans a little quieter but still provide ample airflow.

Great review lemonlime. Keep it goin'!

Great Review, almost want to pick one of them up for the wife's new kit this year (Hmmmm)

That's an interesting design. TBH I like except it'd be nice if they flipped the way the PSU so it pulled air from outside the case on it's side. Also this way the cables (atleast with the PSU you used, would be on the bottom). With some cable management I think this case would be better.

Thanks for the comments all.

@JMCD: Actually, you can simply flip a PSU with bottom mounted fan, and it will intake cool air directly through the side panel vent. If warmer PSU temperatures are a concern, that would be the best mounting position.

Awesome, if you flipped it the cables would be more out of the way too. Definitely a different style.

Nice review. :thumb:

I'd like to see this case's big brother. Maybe the "Panther" (the 5th variant of the panzer, but...).

Beef it up a little, make the fan speed variable, and I'm there.

I looked for this case for ages... is it available yet?

A great tight case, but the lack of filters kills it for me. and it's not available anyway.
