I'm seeing some pretty big fins between the drive bays, if the bays are aluminum they'd prolly cool pretty good.
I like it, a lot.

You got to be kidding me. People actually like this. It looks horrible and the cooling would be soo bad you would have to stick to low end computers. Basically it would be a huge HTPC or file server at best to keep cooling at acceptable levels. There looks to be only one fan on that thing right behind where the GPU's would go. IMO this thing looks ugly.

anything other than a rectangular box gets my attention. At least they attempted something new, rather than copying someone else...

Honestly, I love the look of the thing, it's...different. I mean, no matter how I cut it, I find it pleasant on the eyes. But yes, as for cooling, things aren't looking to bright, of course we can't say for sure because non of of have it, nor has anyone gotten hands on time with it.

Well considering the last innovation for Thermaltake was a micro refrigeration unit, who knows how this thing will be cooled off. I have some faith in them for this one though.

No offense but the price tag for this thing is retarded and the only reason anyone would buy one is the same type of person who'd buy a QX processor for shits n giggles.
