    This case don't do nothing for me. Taste is subjective but to me this thing is really UGLY and over-priced. With the fastest CPUs and 15,000 RPM drives I've never had any fan noise or cooling issues even with highly overclocked CPUs. If you like it buy it, but I wouldn't allow something that looks like that in my home or office.

    That's your opinion, and others love the case. Too bad you don't like it...great case. You should just go for a cheap case then if you are looking for something in your office, this is a gaming case, which obviously you don't do.

    this one will surely take off the ground :laugh: , i think it should have a 25cm fan on the back instead of the side, for better airflow

    And it has no top fans right? And bornfree dont judge a book by its cover. Though you might not like it does not open doors for you to insult others about thier point of view. This forum is not for people to judge others on thier personal view and i think it would suck if others were saying about you. Taste of your own medicine.

    Yeah, it does. But I think it has a bigger fan, not sure though. I wish I had that case.

    Does this mean it has the holes to mount Nocona/S771 coolers? Can't see it on any pic.

    well I actually do not know. I got the info from the maxpoint website. My guess it will not work with server boards, but will support other "standard" form factors like mATX as well...

    cheers

    Does it have 2 sets of 4 holes in the chassis? You should notice them in like 1 sec when you look at the case.

    Actualy no...you would not notice something like that in one second, simply because i never used a server board, do not know that Skt 771 needs those. Why would I look for something that I do not know exists? Why would I look for such server specific thing on a case like this? If I were to review a server case (like Enermax Viper...) I would "smarten myself up" before doing a review to see what a server board needs.

    But I will take a look and let you know.

    cheers

    Thats such a sweet case. I think its moved up quite a few levels on which case i'm going to use for my next comp build (already saving the money.... going to wait and see how the whole dx10 and ddr3 as well as the new amd chips turn out). Airflow is definately going to be extreme on that case.


    edit- i cant seem to find any store that actually has that case :p

    Looks cool and quick... but it would overwhelm my room. I prefere more subtle cases.

    looks like a jet or somethin to me, like i'd be afraid of it taking off, i'd rather get something more simple & not and not as 'flashy'

    They would be easy to notice if that case didn't have so many holes :D

    I do think they're there, see screeny.

    Just look around the CPU sockets, compare to the holes I circled.

    huge fan on the front,blocked by no holes in the front panel and the hard disc caddy that has small holes in it and even worse airflow full of drives.

    there should be a LARGE hole behind that fan to make use of the airflow its producing.

    finally got, and the air flow is nice, but the front fan is hitting something so it makes a lot of noise. i unplugged the front fan so i don;t have to deal with the nose, but still the airflow is nice.
