Not directly related to this review in particular, but in general when laying out the specs of a product, it'd be nice to have consistency in the units that are used. E.g. if you give dimensions of the case in both inches and centimeters, also give the weight in both lbs and kg.
That is a nice case! ive had a few raidmaxes and they were good for cheaper builds. The number one thing i do not like is the top mounted PSU. having the PSU in the way of a large HSF and obstructing airflow is a waist
^^ are you serious?? probably the worst looking case ive ever seen!
From the outside its nice looking not really the worst i have ever seen... but not the best
Thank you, I will keep this in mind for future reviews.
The exterior might be futuristic, but the interior is quite retro...
I like it just for the ease of changing mobo's. I prefer the black case, the white one just looks like it's going to be difficult to match with any colour scheme.
Not if its in a hospital it wont be.
the black case looks very similar to those DELL used to use to make their top of the line XPS gaming systems. a few years ago
I think this case is a bargain, good airflow and removable mobo tray!
No CPU cutout, no wire management, PSU on top.
You obviously haven't seen a lot of cases then
only good point is the exterieur and front is a bit over kill and interieur looks like it's been copied from a dated back in 2000, only good thing is that removable mbo tray
sorry but I have two words for this case EWWWWW and FARK who ever designed this should have their arms broken off and be beaten to death with the wet ends and then stuffed into this case and thrown into the Marianas Trench
I actually don't mind a top mounted PSU. Certainly I disagree that it makes the case likely to tip over - not when GPU and CPU coolers are so heavy. Besides, the case is prety wide, I doubt this would be a major issue.
The interior layout is rather unimaginative, which isn't an issue if the cable management and interior dimensions are clever, but it seems like little or no thought has gone into this.
There's also the looks, which are marmite to say the least...
U-G-L-Y. Wow, some of the exteriors that have been designed lately are just atrocious.I guess im just partial to a simple sleek design.
What a ugly looking case....and why is it a BAD thing to have the PSU at the bottom?
I love the looks on this one. I must be in the minority, though.
It seems we are I prefer the black, but still, there's something attractive about it.
