I like the looks, but yeah, function still has to come before form, and there are just too many issues to overlook. Strangely enough... an mITX motherboard would resolve the 24 pin issue. :)

The other thing I'm not a big fan of is the location of the controls on the side. Completely limits what side of the desk / stand this can be placed.

That said... just like the in-win stealth bomber case I reviewed eons ago.... if it happened to land on my doorstep I'd probably find a use for it. :)

Dimitry's case reviews are the best out there IMO.

Saw the opening picture and thought that it was going to be a great case. Was never going to be for me, but I appreciate something different.

Somebody will love this case for a simple build in a living room or loft; Keeps things neat and looking nice on the outside. Tweakers and gamers I think will pass.

I suspect a revision or two will make this design much more practical.

I don't care how many problems this case has, it is entirely too pretty for me not to buy it.

I think the INWIN Tou is "prettier"...In Win Tou Review | bit-tech.net I almost bought one. ALMOST. I'm a nut for good and quiet cooling, but I don't think the Tou can do it.
