Good, now they need to bring their FANS and PSU's to Canada and we'll see how it all pans out.

tbh - having had opportunity to see the PSU's in person, unfortunately they really aren't anything special.
Wasn't digging the paintjob on them either, felt a little to much like a double coat of spray paint. Much different from the case.


You can get much better PSU's from Silverstone and Corsair

I love this case.
I still have the sample and I dont think there is anything that will convince me to get rid of it.
If the price is as rumored, i would wager that this case has the best price/perfomance/aesthitics in the entire midtower category.
The fans are dead silent while moving what feels like decent amounts of air, and the Bitumen works very well as a noise dampening material.

I honestly think that demand for these will be VERY high, and deservingly so.

Case looks nice: plain and minimalistic. Not like those ugly things we see around with those LEDs.

if this is the rumoured $125-150 range.. I hope they bring lots of the Titanium Grey in.. cause most of my computers WILL be switched over to this case. Very nice looking indeed.
