    Seems very similar to the Sigma cases in basic construction.

    i like it...looks like it has great airflow...the only major draw back i saw was that it didnt have a removable mobo tray.

    yes it is indeed almost identical to the hiper anubis! basically the only difference I noticed was the included side panel of the anubis is a full window

    as for lack of removable mobo tray, I was also a bit disappointed, but that's a hit or miss feature in this price bracket

    Looks like it was made by the same OEM that makes the Adamas for NZXT as well - the extruded aluminum HDD cage nudged at my memory.

    .bh.

    At that price, you might as well just buy the full tower Thermaltake Armor which is much more roomier and has a full side panel window.

    Raidmax does make sexy cases but the paint quality is not that good.

    no...you quoted the review lol
    and I saw no problem at all with any painting my man

    crashnburn, I was in the same mind set as you at first, though I must say I've changed my mind quite a bit about the half window, if you're someone that changes parts often and therefore would have to mess with cable management constantly this is great as you barely have to worry about it yet still show off your parts!

    Nice looking case. However, I think it's kind of weak to build a $150 case full of features, only to kill it with no removable motherboard tray, and break off PCI covers. WTF :wtf:

    Yeah, for that much money, I don't think I would buy a case like that! Cosmos on the other hand I could see spending what I did... Not that one! Maybe $100 tops!

    I find the top fan placements are rather stupidly placed imo air goes in then out...
    edit: I fail at checking last post dates.
