    steam punk? the design sure why not. but the colors say nothing steam-punkish at all about it. maybe a little modding and we may have something interesting

    Internal setup seems fairly standard, which is a good thing, but the outside just doesn't do it for me. Not much at all. Mostly the fans sticking out at funny angles. They look 80mm and non-standard, which likely means hard/expensive to replace.

    Does "enthusiast" means "shaped like a transformer"? (a literal one, not the cool robot ones)

    I kinda like it. Maybe a bit too much plastic. would be nicer in all steel.

    I'm sure it could be modded pretty nicely though.

    I don't know why but just looking at this case is like eye candy to me. I mean my god its a very cool design to me, I would love to get my hands on one and attempt a beastly machine inside!!! It looks like it could hold so much potential in such a cool design!

    One thing im curious of, the top says support for up to a 240mm radiator, but im curious if thats per side or what because im trying to figure that out. If it supports 2 240mm radiators at the top I maybe sold on this bad boy.

    Shame they've decided to launch it with the 'gloss' finish, they had two models on display at computex, one of which had a rubberised 'matt' finish and had yet to decide which one to release.

    ..I think they've made the wrong choice :(

    Yea i think the gloss finish is a mistake. The matte ones at computex looked better.

    Overall I really like it.

    The outside... I don't know if I like it or not, lol.

    But I do know that I don't like how the inside is laid out. At least from the photos displayed here.

    I feel the same way. I really like how the inside looks but the outside (mainly the top) turned me off pretty fast.

    Oh, I don't mind that part. Just think it could better utilize the space. Could be smaller while still offering everything it does now, or offer more at it's current size.
