    When this case becomes available in Sweden I'm going to use it for a mini ITX gaming system build. I've been eyeing it for a long time, and it's truly an amazing little case.
    Great review!

    Reminds me of a mac, but I like it. Also, the first page of the review lists ATX compatibility in the specs. I think that might be a typo.
    Darksaber says thanks.

    Just what I wished for years ago. ofcourse we would like it to be even a little smaller but theres a limit to that ofcourse. I would love to use this case for my nexted build without a doubt.

    Full featured and rich, a do it all :rockout::rockout::rockout:


    Thank you for the nice review.
    :toast:

    Edit:
    I guess smaller would not work. It seemed kind of wide. I'd use 1 ssd and 1 2.5mm drive, some liquid cooling. Magical little machine !

    I wonder if a 240mm rad would fit in the front, while keeping the optical bay?
    It looks tight up top, but that would solve the problem of most likely losing the optical drive with a 240mm rad.

    I would put some killer cooling in there and forgo the optical bay... its a bit useless these days anyways, unless you want a BD player in there.

    Hell, I would do a fan controller over an optical drive even if I had the space.

    I am glad to finally see a viable Mini ITX case that doesn't cost a kidney.

    Great review. Could you measure from the hhd cage (2) too the top with the ODD out? And from the bottom to the top?
    Trying to find out if an EK multioption 250 or 150 will fit.
    I want this case so badly. Makes for a awesome WC setup. And the price is amazing!!

    This may be my next case, think i'm going to forgo waiting for Haswell. I have an itch that need's scratching! lol

    Now if only the iTX MoBo choices would expand i'll be happier! I'm boycotting Asus ATM and they have that z77 iTX thats a monster board but.... It's either this or Xigma "Gigas" seeing as more choices for mATX MoBo's. I do prefer this to the Gigas though :)

    Anyways this case is due out mid July in Canada iirc so hopefully by then :eek:

    Lovely ITX Casing from Bitfenix. Currently in my purchasing list for converting my mid-tower rig by downsizing it with this casing. So, that leaves me the mini-ITX motherboard (currently looking for one offered by ASUS, MSI, ASRock & others at the moment...) & possibly
    an AIO CPU Cooler Kit. A Cooler Master Seidon 120M is currently in my wishlist but I might be moving up to either the 240M or Corsair's H80 AIO Kit to keep those temps down.
