Err... who tests and benchmarks using mini-ATX motherboards?

Really? Would it have killed them to at least lengthen it enough to support standard ATX?

while i don't see the point of an itx tech bench myself. I did get a bit of a chuckle about it being a spider tech bench as most itx computers tend to be intel based.

Make it in a black ATX version, and it will be the home of my HTPC.

It looks like it should sell for about $35. It looks cheap. Most Rosewill cases look better TBH. And what kind of a spider has only four knuckled legs. Would be more aptly named the retarded dog case. A dog has four legs unless modified. :D

$108USD seems a bit high to me for a pile of Meccano you have to assemble yourself and it only makes one model: the spider which some cruel kid has ripped half it's legs off of and can only hold a Mini ITX board. My old Meccano set could make at least 3 models (well my imagination wasn't big enough for more than 3) and that wasn't $108USD...
