God.

Someone PLEASE tell Antec to stop making these awful cases.

That girl lends no credit to the gayness that is this case, despite her having nice hands a solid manicure.

also, without drawing too much ire from the manufacturer, picture you've loaded it up and then, by chance perhaps, a casual sneeze settles in. yup, there goes 5 k of hardware. oops. sorry.



ok,maybe not a sneeze but anything liquid directed anywhere will go thru. right?



there you go

DIRECTIONAL airflow is what makes cases like Silverstone's Raven series so good at cooling. Poking a bunch of holes in a case doesn't necessarily lead to better cooling performance; it just leads to increased dust penetration.

Ugly or not that case is pretty damn cool in how modular it is.At $220 USD though, I can't see this selling well, if at all lol.

I'd have to agree with sky though, good air cooling is about directional airflow.

I'm not seeing much in the way of 'art' in this so called 'state of the art' case.
