I love the idea of this case. It would make a fantastic looking HTPC case, if not for the lack of drive bays.

oh my bad. I'm quite aware of what they are; I just got my formfactor names mixed up -_-.

Are they still maxed out at 120W?

Nope, NCIX has them up to 160W, and I'm pretty sure I've seen some rated up to 190W. So far I'm getting the impression that the brick is the main deciding factor in power ratings of them.

You would be correct. And while that of which people use mitx sytems for a 160 or 190w brick would probably suffice.. most people need more.

If the case was made large enough you might be able to shoehorn a 1u 400w style power supply in it and have that meet the demands.

I think it's pretty neat. One thing, and this is just my personal taste, I don't like the square fan cut outs. Again, that's just personal preference (I don't like them on other cases).

Otherwise, I think it's a pretty sweet looking case, man! Nice work!

And I personally love the square cut outs.
