    It actually looks pretty damn nice. Sucks that it doesn't have a front in-take fan.

    I remember this case. Some time back I was going to build a female gamer friend a computer. I literally typed "Girly case" in Yahoo and a link to this case on newegg.com came up. She liked it, I thought it was well designed (minus that air funnel thingy), but never got around to building it for her.

    I still think it is a good case and I like the unique White and Purple color scheme.

    OMG that case reminds me of a maternity dress....

    Now this one actually has some style to it, except I'd like to get some temperature numbers with only an 80mm exhaust fan.

    this is one of the few cases that -finally- is comparable to home electronics devices regarding outside finish. Really all case brands have a long road ahead from amateurish to integral design finishes.

    WANT.

    I'm sick of idiotic ricer "badass" cases everywhere. Things like this, and most things Lian Li make are awesome.

    The main reason this case is great for me, is that it reminds me of japanese flowers

    +1.

    I've seen this before, looks cute and neat. If they made it in black I'd go for it. :D

    Same here Easy Rhino, I was just going to mention that that looks like the same case that supa cute asian chick was modeling. I actually like the case, being that it is girly. Another thing I noticed, based on the top, its kind of like the 360 clam shell itself....

    I would have considered this for my daughter, but it gives me the impression that it would lack ventilation.

    I'm not to sure about that. My current chassis is an old old ghastly thing with no fans whatsoever, and there's almost no holes anywhere, and my temps are still very fine:

    CPU: Idles @ 35, load @ 40ish
    GPU Idles @ 40, load @ 50ish
    HDD: Idle @ 39, load @ 45

    My system is weak though, but still. :)

    Seriously, my case is almost airtight. :p

    would be nice to have a floor mounted 80 or 92mm fan to give a little more intake, but a nice try and props for the IR - dremel time

    I think you can get a fan on the side panel. That will at least give extra intake.

    This case is great for the price, and you can easily put a fan on the side panel.
    I built my girlfreinds pc in this, its very solid, and very heavy.
    I thought the flip up door would not last, but it's been two years.
    Temps are actually very good considering the lack of fans.
    The only problem was the stock 90mm rear fan was loud.
    Replaced with a Thermaltake temp controlled fan,
    and an extra on the side panel and a hard drive fan,
    and as I said the system runs cool.
    As for looks: It has a really nice Escalade type pearl paint job, albeit satin not gloss.
