I really like this concept and believe that many people could put it to full use. I've often wondered why this didn't already exist as a mainstream option.

I've watched this video, it looks like both systems can be run simultaneously. That's very interesting.

Be sweet to build 2 crunchers in one system! All connected with a single 850w-1000w PSU.

Finally, something caught my eye since my HAF from 2009!
I have an 750W power supply powering a R9 390 + I7-6700.
This power supply would still be enough to power my rig + my Atom mini itx server, right?

Should those atoms consume what like 10w?

4W TDP... + a couple of 2TB disks.
Realy nice 24/7 system.
The idea of having 750W (gold) PSU running all day doesn't please me, though.

Electrical waste.
Big PSU powering such a small system... would it be efficient?

PSUs are most efficient around 40-60% load, and its Gold rated. It won't just use 750w, they only supply the wattage the system needs. Which will likely be less at any given time for your system.

Looks like it only supports M-ATX + ITX in the pic. Darn. In your video it shows a ITX + ATX so there is hope. Thanks for the vid.

Okay, so I had started a reply lambasting this case for it's price. Fortunately, I took a 10 count. Check out the manual: http://www.phanteks.com/assets/manuals/PH-ES414M_Western.pdf

Secondly, @btarunr , I don't think this announcement clearly states that this is "version II" of this case, which addresses some of the issues that people had with the case in the first place. (KitGuruTech pointed out that it's rather silly to have to buy the ITX upgrade, because what you have if you're not going to install the ITX motherboard is a very large uATX case)
