    Colorful, known most for its high-end graphics cards, forayed into cases, announcing its first case for the western markets. The Raynor Tower from Colorful is an ATX mid-tower, that is uses the shark-fin styling the company has been toying with on its recently-announced graphics cards. It measures 190 x 490 x 510 mm, weighing up to 8 kg, making use of SECC steel for most of its body, side panels, perforated front intakes and drive-bay covers, while giving it a dash of plastic. Colorful claims to have tested over 100 different graphics cards to fit, it assures that long cards such as GeForce GTX 480 and Radeon HD 5970 will fit well.

    Internally, the case is completely black, including the tool-free drive retention knobs and the perforated expansion slot covers. There's an opening behind the CPU socket area to help you handle coolers with back-plates better, and all the holes you'll need for cable-management. Ventilation includes one 120 mm fan pre-fitted on the front-intake, there's room for one 120 mm rear fan, two 140 mm fans on the top, and two 140 mm fans on the side panel. The controls and front-panel are located on the top. Colorful is pricing its Raynor Tower at around US $60.

    So, they've named their mid-tower case 'Tower'?

    That's not going to confuse people at all. /sarcasm

    I like that it's all black, but where did all the ports go on the top?
    Also, horrible buttons and placement of them.

    I don't think this is a cooler master contender at all :D

    Looks pretty cool actually. That backplate cut out is pretty darn big. Would love to see them rubber grommet the holes but man those are some nice cable management holes. Is that knob on the top for Fan control? Looks pretty cool and especially given the price.
