now that is thinking outside of the box. It's interesting for sure. Don't think I'll be rushing out to get that one but would love to see some builds in it.

While I appreciate the effort to make something different, my personal opinion is that it's not very attractive, and it's going to be a magnet for fingerprints. Additionally, the mirrored finish is going to be a huge issue for anyone with their computer on their desk. Reflections of your monitor will be very distracting.

Finally.. I want to be able to see the populated side of the board, not necessarily the cable routing on the back. This case doesn't let you get away with ANY shortcuts.

Did this just get released? I thought you had put up a post about this case 4 months ago, at a trade show. I still think the design is neat, not for me, but neat.

Yup! It just got released. I like it, but it doesn't have a rear exhaust port. Would be an issue for cooling video cards in SLI or Xfire.

Oh, and its $799...
I'd personally rather pay $1200.00 for a MKII than 800 for this:S, btu thats IMO. YMMV

If the Mk2 ever sees the light of day, then yes.

But I think this case looks brilliant, as long as they don't cut corners. Will wait for some sort of review.
