I am always a sucker for multiple fan varations, so I'd go for this on the sole basis of being able to optimize my airflow.

Will be nice to see a review on it.

The review on their initial release version of the Midgard was less then stellar. Its the only video where the "cons" actually had to scroll to fit them all in.

I don't think we've received a request since - at least for cases
I hate to say it, but with stuff like CM's 912, 690 II, Antec 300, Lancool's PC-K series and Potentially the Silverstone Precision - it kind of skews the expectations for low cost mid-towers




They do make a mean CPU cooler though, I'll give them that.

Is it just me or at this point in time do they not yet have this case listed on their site?
Also, I am going to need to look into the Utgard,(though it does need to be bigger imo) upon an initial look it seems to hold what I want and have an almost front mounted button/port panel. I do not care about this pantheon thing..

Look a bit (or maybe too much) like 690 II, hopefully not in person. Any idea on the available expansion slots?

Ho ahha Well, if you make a mid qality case you have to accept the fact that some reviewer will make negative review. Keep doing nice review, and if they can't take this then, shame on them
