Windy, a Japanese manufacturer of premium aluminum computer case is currently preparing to ship their cases worldwide.
In the past, if one coveted a Windy case, they would have to be prepared to spend at least $400 USD to import one of the fabulous cases made by Windy.

Estimated sale date is March 2010

Read press release here
expected shipping destinations


P.S. Windy cases are usually anodized 100% including mobo tray

Fermi and Windy both in March? March is looking to be an expensive month :laugh:

Like the inside, outside looks meh though.

By the by, am I the only one that prefers cases made of steel?

The thicker the better for me :p!

that's what I am saying

I first saw these back in '08
I wanted one, contacted some guy on bjorn3d forums that lived in Japan, he quoted me $850 for the case in the first post

lol :toast:


one may be wondering why does this case have 2 side panels


here is the breakdown

air gets pulled from the side of case


air gets chilled by the aluminum side panels


front fans sucks chilled air into case


warm air is channeled through the back and downwards

I hope they would have some windowed side panels, it would be a waste not being able to show off an interior like that.
