You know what is up with companies making cases that look like they would only be liked if you were 12.
What ever happened to the elegant non-plastic look. I mean seriously.... it looks like case manufacturers are doing the same thing that car manufacturers were doing a few years ago. Just hanging hanging more plastic crap off the chassis. Why not worry about functionality instead of how much plastic crap you can hang on one case.

This one looks like a design we have all seen before. It looks and acts just like the Haf X but again with more plastic crap on it.

I'm getting a haf x and starcraft/deadspace vibe from it. Not my style but looks to be a solid case if the price is right.

I couldn't agree more.

I'm going to get the Armor A60 this summer before it warms up to much.
Then try and get my 1090T stable and cool at 4.0GHz or close. Running
at 26c idle with no case fan but open in a cheap ass Antec razor wire case,
and a Thermaltake Frio at 3.5.

Really not liking the rising popularity of the cheap toy lasergun aesthetic. Lets get some dignity back please.

Reading the marketing pitch makes me want to vomit. Is it translated Chinese?

I hadn't bothered to read it until you mentioned it, but I think you're right.

Too plasticky and toyish. Reminiscent of early year 2000 era cases.. like those Viper pc chassis complete with blue ccfl and blue led fans.

Kudos to the internal 240 rad though.. shouldve made it 360 capable though.

Yep which is why I like the A60. Just a plain case with nice lines. Has the Blue fans , but not worried about that it won't even be seen most of the time. I do kind of like how this case sits up off the floor though.

Even the A60 is too much for me. In fact, I'm sick of my original Armor. My favorite cases right now, as far as looks go, are probably the most "boring" to a lot of people; Lian Li, Corsair Obsidian series, NZXT H2, Fractal Design, etc. I think I'm just attracted to simple, unadorned, metal boxes.

Nah it's like a Cooler Master HAF and an Antec 900 had a baby . . . . a very ugly Thermaltake baby...

I'll stick with my CM 690 II. It's no-nonsense and has a smooth, simplistic look. This thing looks like someone tried to stick as much plastic as possible on a chassis and market it as the "industry leader." I'm not impressed.

Although the look of this case is not my cup of tea....I can see a large group of 13-16 aged kids loving this transformer looking case!
