XIGMATEK Unveils Octans 236B Chassis

XIGMATEK unveiled the Octans 236B micro-ATX chassis. This is one of the first cases to take the concept of horizontally compartmentalized towers down to the scale of micro-ATX. With no 5.25-inch or 3.5-inch drive cages in the way, there's room for graphics cards as long as 34 cm, and CPU coolers as tall as 16 cm. The front panel also serves up room for a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. Storage areas include three 3.5-inch drive bays, and four 2.5-inch bays. Measuring 412 mm x 189 mm x 451 mm (LxWxH), the case is made of steel and ABS.

Looks alright, and Asus make a matching graphics card in those colours.
Just wondering where the air intake is on front and if a radiator could be top mounted?

its just another case with some "Design" body over it, sigh, getting tired of the lack of innovation myself.
To answer your question, seeing the vents on the top back and the room there is I would think a radiator can be mounted there easily, and usually when a front it seemingly sealed the air comes form the bottom or small side vents.

Looks like a rebrand of the DIYPC case

DIYPC is just an importer, they rebrand china cases and sell them on newegg.

If you spend time perusing the sub $50 cases you'll see the same design surface a lot.

So basically both DIYPC and Xigmatek are rebranding the same case (who knows who the actual OEM is)

Here's another of the same case

DIYPC didn't even photoshop the ripoff spiderman "wall crawler" logo off their side window image
