The fan arrangement screams V3 to me, it is all but identical. If that is the case, then the top exhausts will be a bitch to fit anything other than a regular fan to because there isn't enough spacing between the mounting holes and the motherboard.

I have a V3 and a top mounted rad is not possible (at least not internally).

Dear case manufacturers,

Please stop using plastic fronts on your cases that look like they are made from recycled childrens' toys.

My first case was a Lanfire..Still have it.

This looks nice but I think they make better HTPC cases than towers, The Mozart was just foolish, altho I'd love one for a dual build

Hideous, toyish, tacky and cheap. This is what I have come to think of when Thermaltake comes to mind. Maybe this would appeal to me as 13 year old but I'm 30 now (oh God I'm really old). I just bought the NZXT 210 Elite for my Hackintosh build:D, simple but elegant. I don't even look at Thermaltakes when case shopping anymore. Maybe they just don't cater to me.:shadedshu

Does anyone over the age of 18 actually prefer the 99c toy laser gun look over something like Fractal Design's/Lian Li's/Silverstone's (TJ/FT) cases?

Come back in 5 or 10 years and say the same thing. Most people eventually grow out of the "flashy" phase, and move on to things with a more classy and refined look.
