OCZ Prototype Case Spotted at CES

OCZ has been on a roll with diversifying its product range, with memory, data storage, power supplies, gaming peripherals, cooling, graphics cards, and now cases. French website Matbe took a few snaps of a certain prototype full ATX case by OCZ. This case looks like it has drawn inspiration from several popular designs: the Thermaltake Xaser, Armor Plus, and Cooler Master Stacker 830. The prototype is made of steel. It features a control and utility cluster at its top, providing USB, eSATA and FireWire ports. Behind the door are seven 5.25 inch drive bays. By the looks of it, the case will feature several ventilation points for fans. Its availability isn't known at this point. It is expected to be priced around 100 Euro.

They took pictures before CES even started. You see other PCP&C stuff in the background.

Yeah, I thought it was a Thermaltake case at first.

With the door open it looks like a Coolermaster to me. Closed it looks like a Thermaltake.

I like the front-top input panel design! Looks excellent. I can't wait to see what they'll price it at.

I don't like it. :(
I agree .... the door looks cheap , and there is nothing special at the outer look.

The truth are, that this days its hard to surprise some one, with one square computer case. :D
