I agree ....I think the benefit of flex tubing is simply convenience..swapping out parts etc!

My only complaint would be the big NCIX PC logos.

As a result that would have made NCIX look like a more "mature" system builder.
+1!! The logo on the front really wrecks it for me... if I'm throwing down that much cash for a build this nice, I don't want to be a marketing billboard on the side.

Wtf... pause the vid at 3:58. For several seconds there are swastikas clearly visible silhouetted behind the fans... of this all white build... how unfortunate. But what causes that anyway? The plastic backing of the fan housing in front of the lights from inside the pc? The only interior lights I saw mentioned in the vid were on the ram which wouldn't be enough to make a solid silhouette like that. I'm guessing it's an unfortunate side effect of some custom shine-through lighting they used from behind the case for the vid?
