I am with you on this and I want this case asap. I am currently waiting for the NZXT H630 but I think I might hold off from adding another card to my PC and wait until this case comes out. It is looking to take a lot of sale from the nowhere to be seen/found Corsair 900D.

Lets see on price, I've heard $250(USD?) and about July for release, now as to Radiators, hows two 480x120mm or two 420x140mm radiators grab you? I want two of them, one for My current PC and one for the one I'm building...

That's what I am talking about. I want to have a 420 mm radiator up top for my CPU and motherboard and then maybe sell my EKWB XTX 240 mm radiator and XSPC 280 mm radiator and place a 480 mm radiator at the bottom for my GPUs (one coming once the case comes out or possibly right before it).

Everyone borrows something but I don't recall and NZXT case that had such window styling. Do you?

No, I'm not accusing Phanteks of stealing design cues from other cases; that would be dumb. I'm saying it looks like Phanteks literally chopped parts off a Switch 810 and slapped it on their own case. The material of side panel, the corner joint, the top sill, the bottom long ventilation, and the rear thumb screws all look like it came directly off a Switch 810 (refer to bottom photos).

That doesn't make any sense mate. I mean, almost all my cases have had thumb screws, and if you look around other case makers, you can see that the designs are pretty similar and especially if you want to make your case able to mount huge rads..

Has anyone ever gotten hold of Phantek's support? They never ever reply back.

I think I just want the case even though the fact that they have the 900D in stock now at NICX and CC makes me want to forget about the Enthoo Primo. One thing the Primo has over the 900D is size and good looks besides the fact that you can still house 2x480 plus a 240. And all I need is just a 420 to go along my 240..hmmm

Of course no one outside of Phanteks know the exact size of their Enthoo Primo case, at least not yet.
