    If you used any big MM case once, then nothing is big enough ...
    I think the new size would be just perfect; meaning space to fit anything you want ...
    PD: IF you want more cooling, just go for peltiers, any with 350w or more can take your cpu to subzero ...

    Pros: Powering my computer along with my air conditioner and my refrigerator, and I used it to jump start my truck once.

    Cons: The only problem was the FBI at my door saying something about knocking out power for the east coast...not sure what thats about.

    Really all you need to do is see about getting it made or seeing if a case manufacturer wants to pick it up. I agree, well done.

    Mick, IMHO that is as good as I have seen. Would like to see this produced, even if it is in a small quantity. I would own 1

    Mick I've got an idea for you, make the top radiator compartment with a horizontal rad, leave 2 side vents but make the compartment shorter.

    This case makes one pretty big assumption from a manufacturing perspective...

    How is that uni-body design manufactured? Are you going to cut the main body out of one piece of almuminum? Where are the seams? How are they going to be joined?

    Are you saying that producing the body from a single sheet of aluminum is a problem? If it were to be produced from a single sheet, it would only have one seam, which would be at the bottom or the back. As the case is mainly constructed from sheet aluminum, without any covers to hide rivets or screws, etc. any joins that would be visible from the outside would be soldered. You must remember that this design is only a render. If it was to be produced for real, there would probably have to be some minor modifications to aid in the construction and manufacturing process. That aside, do you like it?

    I do like it, but it's highly irrelevant.

    Between the impossibility of manufacturing your main body and the fact that Silverstone would be all over you for borrowing the look of the TJ07 (I mean, c'mon man... You've even used the Silverstone feet in your render...) this will never come to market. It's fun to play around though, and your art is something I can definitely appreciate.

    Regards,

    Linus

    I can honestly say that it wasn't my intention for my design to look like any other case. I personally don't think it looks like a Silverstone, but more like a Lian Li. As for the feet, I don't even know what the Silverstone feet look like. I just produced four circular feet. I was thinking of putting it on casters, but then it would look even more like a Lian Li.

    I tihnk that it looks like a nice mix of the two brands,
    However, I agree a little that this is going to next to impossible to manufacture
    Which is a pity, since it looks like such as nice case!

    It looks like the Silverstone TJ07, but perhaps only due to the fact that it's the only other case on the market that features a unibody design like this.

    Either way I'm not making accusations, and like I said, it doesn't really matter.

    It's a very cool render, and I would be proud to own a case just like this.

    A good quality/sturdy aluminum like Lian-Li uses.
    I would so buy that case in a split second. You should patent the design and sell it to someone.

    I'd rather see it made out of composite material, some kind of very strong plastic, with aluminum sides. But thats just me.

    I have to say that this is the best thing since sliced bread, BUT...
    I think you should make the front more "mac pro-ish", the blank space in top portion in front is the only thing I don't appreciate
