Yep......They were supposed to be available april-ish.....

---

Thx for backing me up Kerry D....It's hard to justify high end costs .....but here's how I look at it ; the case will get the longest life out of any component in a computer.

Windy's are thick, well machined aluminum....No cost spared in material or aesthetic.

Personally , I want a FX2000R4 with 'black knight' anodising....1 matching drive bay.......I'll do the rest.

I've got the 800$ for it right now.

Not my cup of tea and not to mention the fact that the cost is completely bonkers. I agree with fishing fanatic, at those prices, getting a custom case is a much better idea but to each their own.
People go to extremes to get what they want (look at Liu Kangs build log ) I myself have dropped a lot of cash on my case.

My case is >$700 right now - JUST THE CHASIS!
TJ07: $350
Powdercoating: $120
TopGrill: $60
Midplate: $200

I'd love to see Windy on our shores. The market has proven that high end cases sell here.

Whether or not this actually happens , we'll see.

Man, that's so close to being my "dream case."

I wish the big Taiwanese case companies would hook up with Windy and make some good case babies.
