    I can't really picture this taking off, as you're going to have to buy a real case eventually. Seems easier to get a real one right away to save yourself having to swap out later.
     
    HossHuge, _JP_ and francis511 say thanks.

    pretty sure the team who designed that had all just shared a massive joint.

    So we should all go out and buy a new case. Then, throw the case away and use the box.

    I think it's kinda cute. It might be a good idea as a gift for a kid. They could use some decorative tape to strengthen it and then decorate it as they please.

    This is so freaking awesome! Makes case modding for tool-retarded guys like me so damn easy! :rockout:
    I'm going to try and get one of these, even if just to test and put flame stickers to OC better!

    Very interesting concept, if they ship that with all motherboards they sell, I think we have a winrar.

    It's not a bad idea, it's just that there are better ideas.

    Not a bad idea, assuming it is free, since they are just providing something that they would already be providing, a box, with the motherboard.

    what made me lol was the reporter taking so seriously. yes, this does look like a joke or something some tech guys cooked up while baked, but thinking about it, it makes sense; buy this and you can use it while waiting for your new case to arrive. although in my experience i've always bought everything together and wait for them to arrive before building.

    Agreed, it is such a hassle to assemble the computer, then disasseble it and put it in the proper case. I always just wait the day or so extra if I don't have the case yet.
