You had me with the words "Brushed aluminum".

If this case can fit a dual rad or an H100 I can see it as being amazing for small yet powerful gaming systems.

Looks like no cable management... I'm thinking this thing is going to be a hot box, it has almost no airflow.

That's what I'm thinking . I'm planning to get it to see if I can fit two 240 rads in there (one in front, one on the rear). Some mods will probably be needed, but it would be amazing if I could do it.

i REALLY want an M-ATX lan box, This was going to be it, but after seeing it, looks like very poor airflow. PSU area is to cramped, and I think the brushed actually makes this look dirty all the time. I want a little cube that dosen't need to be modded, I'll probably just settle for a lian-li mini tower, that way i know there is plenty of room for a larger cooler,PSU,GPU, and no need to mod it for airflow, or more clearance(just built a mini tower for a friend and it was a work of art 2600k,maximus 4 gene Z mobo,16GB 1866MHz RAM,nh-c14 noctua cooler,EVGA GTX 590, 2 120GB SSD's in RAID 0, 2 2TB's for storage, seasonic m12 PSU, also aerocool 140mm's for 3 case fans)
