    A much appreciated departure from Xigmatek's traditionally bling-y cases. But the ventilation, or rather lack thereof, worries me... nowhere for the GPU to draw air from, PSU intake is mostly blocked by the drive cages. And the LED thing wasting an inch of space is a major "how did that get through testing?". So overall, looks good, but I'd be interested to see the performance and temps with a heavy workload, especially given the price.

    Errata: "Introduction" page lists I/O as "2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0", that should probably be "2x USB 3.0 or 2x USB 2.0 (with supplied adapter)".

    I saw the press release of this case and got a friend to make me build him a new pc in it right after. I kinda like the base, too bad about that power button.
    Would seriously recommend it tho, looks insanly good.

    Cool, I like it.

    I'm not so worried about the power light as that short MSI GTX 760 would be right at home in this case. Otherwise if I had a ~10" card that absolutely had to used that cover will come right off and the lights removed if needed.

    With the immense amount of ventilation, I'd probably reverse that fan and put a filter on it.

    If I could put a GTX780TI I might consider... was rather sad to see that ugly power LED is blocking all hope
