The Akasa Mirage 62 can simply be described as the Hummer of PC cases - wide, big, black. The front looks sweet, but the interior looks even sweeter. Black interior and a mirror finish mainboard tray just ask for a window panel to be used. This case delivers everything you may need, from total access to your parts to all the space you could ever need - even for QuadSLI and 1kW power supply. So if you can afford the $150 price tag, this case is for you.

How about cooling performance? And noise? Pretty important part of a case, i think.

Dry ice? Go live in antartica. I bet you wouldn't even need coolers.

Hmm the case does not have any fans installed by default, thus there is no fan noise, nor will the cooling be of such difference, compared to normal cases, that it (1.) really testable (temperature varies everywhere, thus I can only tell you "relative" temeratures, which may not mean much for you as your case may be cooler just because of the hardware used and its surroundings), (2.) of much importance. Fans make a much bigger difference in temperatures than the kind of case.

I was just wondering because it claims to be the coolest case in the world.

But it says "unbeatable cooling" at the bottom?

true, but that is a quote from some other website...

I do not see how this case stands out in any way, considering there is nothing incredibly unusual in this case. Front fan, back fan, optional side fan. that is it.

This case obviously does not have the best cooling in the world unless its made out of magic.

I think the inside of the case looks better than the damn outside of the case. And Ya know when I spend a lot of money on a case I expect it to look somewhat good atleast. Looks real plasticy on the outside but real nice chrome on the inside.
