So they took the Level 10 design and turned it into plastic extrusions onto a typical rectangle ATX case.

I guess that's one way of making things cheaper, but the innovation is far less.

I really want this case but they gotta get the price down. $270 is still too much. knock another $50 off or more and I'm sold.

Interesting look. Not sure if its for me, but I would think about it if I could get a triple rad in there. Kind of like a sexy girl with terrible teeth...something just throws me off here.

Looks pretty neat actually but for an air-cooled setup, I don't think there are enough fans inside. Sure, the top fan is massive but I don't think there is a defined airflow inside...

has the same cooling as the HAF-X, 3x 200mm fans is more than enough to have good air circulation. Front/Side/Top.

Looks like a modified Prolimatech Megahalems with a giant plastic bling shroud to me. Only difference seems to be the fin construction.

I could actually get behind this case. Still a tad pricey, but not obscenely-so like the original. I'd want to see more shots and impressions, though. Especially of the HDD area (looks stuffy for cooling, and hard to tell if there's any vibration isolation), how well the cable-routing actually works, and how sturdy it feels with all the plastic.

Looks affordable for once! LOL well anything compared to the Thermaltake Level 10 is affordable.

I will definitely be buying this case.
