AeroCool Strike-X Air Open Chassis Pictured

Alongside the XPreadator X3 Devil Red and White Editions, the new Strike-X Air is among four new cases the company has planned for launch in Fall, 2012. Featuring the distinct black+red styling characteristic of the Strike-X family of cases, PSUs, and notebook coolers from AeroCool, the new Strike-X Air is an open case designed for enthusiasts that need quick access to components, but like to keep components organized (not laid out on a table). Unlike several cases in its category, the Strike-X Air features an armature design that lets you completely open up the top, on which a 200 mm fan is suspended, giving you complete access to components installed on the motherboard.

The Strike-X Air supports XL-ATX motherboards, with up to 10 expansion slots, and room for graphics cards as long as 33 cm. The case features three each of 5.25-inch and 3.5/2.5-inch drive bays, with hot-swap back planes. There is room for unconventionally long PSUs. The side compartment that holds the drive and PSU bays is ventilated by a 120 mm fan. Front panel connectivity includes a USB 2.0/1.1 and three USB 3.0 ports (standard headers); and front-panel HD audio jacks. AeroCool plans to make the Strike-X Air available some time in early-October.

Another cheap looking product from Plasticool
Actually, it's made of 0.7 mm SECC steel and aluminum. Forgot to mention it.

I kind of like it:)
Been using my HSPC Tech Station for a couple years now and have been looking for another open-air chassis.

Looks 100x uglier than the open Antec but appears to be 100x easier to mount and unmount...

They shuld make an Remember Astronaut Armstrong edition :)
