Not bad. I like the stock option for the 2.5" drives. I am not a fan of the 2x60mm fans in the back though. otherwise it's got some really nice features. they need to make an full tower version though.

It has a 230 on the side, and the top, a 140 at the back and a 120 on the front with an optional second 120. the 2 60s on the back are also optional. I would just get an other 120 for the front and forget about the 60s. This thing probably is pretty quiet and probably moves a lot of air. My only concern is that the eSata port is dangerously close to the power button... I can see a lot of people getting angry about accidently sending their PC into sleep or turning it off.

It's only available in the US right now even though I didn't see it on newegg. If you go to their site it will be available awhole lot of other places in march. I don't know that I am a fan of the overly large fans either. For instance the 140 at the top. what if I want to put a rad on it, I would have to do some modding. I typically don't like fans on the side either but this one has a plug and play connetor so there's no need to have to try and unplug a molex or 3-pin to take off the side panel. I don't think I have seen any other cases with that yet but it's a nice idea. I hate going through all the trouble of hiding all my cables just to  have a cable from the fan dangling there because if you tie it up or hide it somewhere you can't get the side panel off.

Looking at that case, I would expect it to say something like:

"Help, Michael, the villains put me in a car compactor. Take me back to Devon and Bonnie so that I can be repaired."

Then, it would use patented "Microlock" technology to stop the bad-guys car in its tracks. I always thought that Microlock was a deus ex machina cop-out, but now that I'm older I realize it was just way ahead of it's time: He was actually telling OnStar that the car was stolen and they were locking up its brakes.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Specious. In a "press release" advertisement pimping their new pretty product, no less. That's just absolutely priceless. They really need to get someone fluent in English to proofread their ad copy.

I like the interior layout, however I don't like its facade.
