Ya, its nice, but $489? Seriously??? There is nothing that special about this case

And this is coming from someone who has spent $500+ on cases in the past.

When cases like these were rare and a time when people wanted a good top of the line case it could be justified to spend the money on these.

But with so many lower priced cases that have just as good build quality its not justifiable anymore.

The PC-80N will fit HPTX size motherboards without modification. All you SR-2 owners, take note. That makes this case worth the money to a lot of people.

The PC-Z70 also seems to fit the SR-2 as it supports HPTX. It also seems to have the same basic dimensions as the A77F (which I use). This means it will fit it just fine but now with proper expansion slots (SR-2 needs 10, this one has 11). I'm not entirely sure about the ventilation, but at least you won't be seeing an eternally growing collection of dust/dirt in front of your chassis.

Definitely nice looking, but I agree that these seem to be a bit overpriced. However if the PC-Z60 drops to < $200 in 6 to 8 months, I'll be considering it for my next build.

FINALLY. I've been waiting for the PC-Z70 since February. It is a perfect case for an sr-2 and a ton of hard drives.
