Seasonic has been pretty bold by offering their Seasonic Connect 750W PSU with its unique distribution system in the recent past. With the Q7 series case, they go a step further and offer a case that allows for the seamless integration of their Seasonic Connect, all while focusing on quality at the same time.

This release caught me off guard. I didn't know anything prior to reading the review. It is a solid case and PSU IMO, but I feel like they made the case to demonstrate/find usage for their specific PSU line with the module. That's not bad by any means of course. I find it strange there is no cost benefit buying together and separately. If you like the aesthetics/functionality it will definitely last many years. I had to read the price section a few times to understand the pricing. So there is like three variants of the case? :
1.) case only, then
2.) case only with Nidec fans + $40 and then
3.) SKU (Case+PSU+fans) -> which was the tested unit here.

Everything looks ridiculous upside down. Couldn't they have designed the case so everything would have been right side up?

So, this can do back+top intake with front exhaust? Might be fun.

This chassis is doing a few new things, and I do really appreciate that.

However, there are a few things that baffle me, like the mobo tray being flipped (mobo and GPU logos now look goofy), the PSU being useless or at least difficult to utilize in another chassis, as well as the front panel appearing somewhat restrictive / not being mesh.

I understand that they're trying to promote their specific cable setup, and I think that it's a really cool concept. But there must be a way to execute it in a way that is re-usable for other builds, and that doesn't ruin aesthetics. I mean, why have a window at that point? Put in a classic side panel intake fan and just market excellent thermals for GPU + CPU.

I do not think that Seasonic will sell a whole lot of these. I do hope they continue to make more cases, though.

edit: accuracy / grammar

2cm (5-6cm is optimal for most PC fans) + filter + steel grille seems really restrictive to me, but that's nice that there's a gap at all. Just surprised since they seem to have put a lot of thought into the rest of the design. Looking forward to GN's review.
