Nice SKY...

Okie, I admit it does look pretty, but c'mon man, almost every enthusiast case nowadays comes with 2x120mm at the top, 3 fans would have been nice..
Although internal is black, that's a good move..

is it me or NZXT is recycling a bunch of their parts for a bunch of their cases. internal chassis seems really similar to al of their crafted series cases. same with the top as the m59, gamma, lexa s, tempest evo. same thing with the side panel, all similar.

Seriously...They are just trying to compete the Fugly nine hundred. Cmon NZXT, drop this plastic front and turn the HDD 90 degree. When I was younger I was a NZXT fanboy...Now I can't love them anymore. Quality get a terrible drop these years. Plastic make case get warmer, more fragile and...Ugly...Ho and..Nice one sky!

Then again look at their pricing. The features they give you for the money is amazing on their budget cases such as the gamma, beta evo, and m59.
i'm partial though. some of their designs i think is fugly.

that thing looks an awful lot like my antec 300 but with an extra top mount 120, quick release drives, and wiring holes pre-drilled...and im pretty sure it'll cost a whole lot more

Four HDD's should be enough for most of this case's target audience. IF you need more....drop a 4 in 3 converter into the bottom 3 5.25 slots, that still leaves two for optical drives (a DVD and Blu ray burner for example).

IF 8 hdds is not enough....time to seriously think about a SAN!
