Been a while since I've seen a brand new case in mid tower ATX format that has an 80mm rear fan. Because it is a narrower case and can only support CPU coolers up to 15CM tall...that nixes using a cooler like my U14S, let alone AIO users that wanna use the rear exhaust spot for their 120/140 coolers. Pass.

Must admit, putting anything smaller than a 120mm fan in a case these days
is pretty much bordering on total incompetence. I like the basic layout of the
case itself, but really!!!

One reason i have not been able to find a new case, my TT Armour has a 1200mm and 90mm rear fans.

Why does everyone insist on closing off the front panel airflow. Why would you stick big ass fans on the front, the immediately cut 99% of the air flow to them? Please learn from every other failed heatbox and ventilate your cases people.
