Well it looks nice, but can it handle heat well? I would like to see inside this sucker to get an idea for air flow.

This is SO going on my "to buy" list!

I think it could handle heat very well. If you look at the pic closely:


You can see there are many vents right above where the CPU heatsink are supposed to be. Its so slim, the cpu could draw in air directly from the outside. But i think it must have some 40mm/60mm coolers of some sort. Thermaltake usually stuff in small silent coolers in their small cases.

Edit: Oh, upon further reading, it does actually have a single 40mm cooler. Silent of course.
