1000% agreed. As soon as I saw their designs + their amazing price I knew i wanted one for my next build. Now its a couple months later, and its finally happening! Excellent cooling, an intelligent use of space (who needs more than 2 5.25s anyways?) and sound dampening on top of that. Sweeeeeet! lol...

NCIX's $99.99 price was only on sales. The Fractal Design R2 was originally priced at $119, and then $109 became the regular price.

MSRP from Fractal is the exact same
