This case was announced 7 months ago on their youtube page... It's just availible from next week or so.
I didn't get the point of this case, but after watching the product video I do.
It's just that the dual pc is optional and you have to use a "micro psu", which is sfx.
That psu then block access to the bottom pci slots and because sfx units have short cables, you'll never be able to reach the motherboard without extentions. They should just have put the psu above the board given that Phanteks makes a low profile cooler.

Awesome case indeed.
I could see myself with a mini atx for everyday usage and a micro one for gaming. Why? Just because I could do it.

At first I was wondering what the point of this case was. I would think that people who choose an mATX board would want a smaller case to go with it. Then, I saw the video and realised the case is made for people that want to install triple rads with push/pull configs inside the case. That won't be me though.
