This actually looks kind of interesting. If I was to pick out any fault, it would that there doesn't appear clearance for GPU's longer than 9.5".

I expected so much from Bitfenix ever since they decided to go solo, but so far both cases are underwhelming, overdesigned failures. They should take some lessons form Lian Li/Lancool.
