i think legit did something like making a case made of fans a while ago and the difference wasn't that big.
with proper mesh/filtration system dust shouldn't be much of an issue, but any liquid towards the general area of the case(well directly) would be bad, i figure.


edit : here

That's because if you have 20 fans blowing willy nilly, there isn't any direction. A clear intake to exhaust route is needed.

For me, antec is dead...For the past 3 years they have make only crap case so they can now sink and let the game to the real one. This one is just to much...sorry.

Edit : How can you make a clean build with a case like that? cable management is not that good and you will see the fking wires?

The ability to configure is so much is pretty cool. They need to sell solid panels or something so you can add them in and make a "rebuildable" case, if you catch what I'm meaning....

I like how they integrated a small storage place for tools (or whatever) in the front, and I really like the options for installing optical drives.

Otherwise, I'll pass.

I wish these case manufacturers would take a cue from Corsair and Fractal and put some DESIGN into them.

Literally they have hardware lackies sitting at a desk drawing these on a demo version of CAD. REAL design firms create a product that is conducive to it's environment - this is not it. If any of you HWC'ers buy this, toss me a PM so I can make fun of you hahaha.

I just read the review for the full tower that was posted here in the review roundup, and I think you guys are short changing this case. Obviously the style is one thing, but you can do almost anything you want with this case. You optical drives can face any way you want. Hard drives too. You PSU can go on the top and bottom, the mother board tray can go on either side. Loads of watercooling room.

I like the idea of it being so modular.
But yeah, it'll get dirty so fast.. Unless you have good air conditioning and keep your place super-clean.
