    Windy, a Japanese manufacturer of premium aluminum computer case is currently preparing to ship their cases worldwide.
    In the past, if one coveted a Windy case, they would have to be prepared to spend at least $400 USD to import one of the fabulous cases made by Windy.

    Estimated sale date is March 2010

    Read press release here
    expected shipping destinations


    P.S. Windy cases are usually anodized 100% including mobo tray

    Fermi and Windy both in March? March is looking to be an expensive month :laugh:

    Like the inside, outside looks meh though.

    By the by, am I the only one that prefers cases made of steel?

    The thicker the better for me :p!

    Sweet baby jesus! Time to start saving up some money for big blue there.

    I'm really wondering WTF is up with the canister thing in front of the card slots.

    OK I am betting that the expansion slot canister thing holds a fan.

    that's what I am saying

    I first saw these back in '08
    I wanted one, contacted some guy on bjorn3d forums that lived in Japan, he quoted me $850 for the case in the first post

    Oh my. Gorgeus stuff. Expensive stuff. DAMN! But I feel left out, Switzerland is not on the list, despite everybody knowing that we're all rich bastards here. They didn't bother with alphabetical order, huh? I was like wtf Liechtenstein is on the list, but Switzerland not, damn racists :laugh:

    lol :toast:


    one may be wondering why does this case have 2 side panels
    [​IMG]

    here is the breakdown

    air gets pulled from the side of case
    [​IMG]

    air gets chilled by the aluminum side panels
    [​IMG]

    front fans sucks chilled air into case
    [​IMG]

    warm air is channeled through the back and downwards

    I hope they would have some windowed side panels, it would be a waste not being able to show off an interior like that.

    Nice, thanks. Yeah I'm sure they will have some windowed panels. If not that's what your Dremel is for! :D

    Or Cyber Druid can do it :)

    I could go for one of those, very nice and clean looking. Hefty price tag but you get what you pay for. ;)

    Do like, they look very nice. Hopefully they'll go for a good bit less than Lian Li and Silverstone cases.
