:help:Unfortunately, it seems as if this Tt case will be like alot of other non-standard cases they release, pricewise...$750++

I'd pay $279 for the chance to mod one...not a penny more...

If I had the money, I'd still buy it. Just because it looks so damn cool.
Unlike anything we have seen.
Its good to see manufacturers breaking the mold for a change, the Raven, that Wierd thing from Lian-Li, this one from TT.
I love it,
Now I just need to sell stuff so I can buy it LOL!

I see cooling being an issue on this one. The entire point of having ATX cases designed the way they are is to promote directional airflow over the components. If you want to provide that for this case you would have to tack on fans everywhere.

Yeah, hence my comment about "water only". I do, however, like how each bit is compartmentalized, as this could turn into a very "flashy" rig with some UV coolant, and a decent paint job...I'd like the entried mobo area to be in clear plastic as well...so with heavy mods in mind, I can only outlay so much for one of these. That said though, maybe by the time this comes out I'll have changed my mind...

Sticking everything in its own little box is going to kill components real fast unless each compartment acts as a heatsink.

NO kidding. You'd hope that they've already considered such...I mean really...but maybe that's why it's "just a concept".

I'd like a waterfall down the HDD area... stagger them a bit front to back...ugh, gotta stop thinking about possibilities...would probably be cheaper and more effective to do it all myself...maybe...

If you stick a nice Scythe -S in each compartment to vent it out, it would really make a cooling marvel.
I really , really want one.
