yeh im very tempted to myself, i wonder if i can replace the front 5.25 panels with some grill/mesh ones? does anybody know? I would install one of the Antec 900 drive cages as it has 3 x 5.25" bays and a sweet as LED fan all in one unit, but as I just realised, the bottom panel is 3.5 with the temp display :(.

Huh. It's just a case mod of the Microfly. I dunno if it's worth it. Go with a Silverstone SG01 or the Lian-Li series, they have more room (depth) and better cooling.

I found this cool looking cube, first I've seen with a nice big LED fan, looks ideal for an average gaming rig (ie. single GPU) and for LANs.

What do you guys think? Anybody used this yet or can make any recommendations?

Cheers.
looks ok, its basically the same as my old case (check out my sig for details) But the fan would be directly over a ROM, so its pretty pointless m8 :(

no sexy fan tho lol
Yeah but you sacrifice a quiet machine for a fan that based on the case design will cool the power supply and the hard drive cage, barley affecting the GFX card. Check this case:

It can fit the 8800 series and has great cooling if you attach an extra 60mm exhaust fan above the pci slots. Or you could sacrifice everything for beauty. I guess. :shadedshu

I have read a few reviews for that case (well the Apevia version that I'm assuming they're all based off) and the main complaint they had was that the plastic handle was so insanely flimsy that the authors refused to use it. I think they replaced it with a solid metal one on the newest version. I saw it on Newegg a few days ago, let me dig it up...

Old version:

New version:

Hope that provides some insight!
