    An adapter for the HDD rack could be supplied with the case, or as an optional extra?

    Not sure if anybody already mention to put a swappable caster / feet. I dont think anyone would enjoy lifting up casing that has few radiator in it. :O

    New thread and I still want the case! I'm still not a huge fan of the look of that front grill, I prefer the look of a little chrome bolt-on grill, but thats just me, if it bothered me I would just mod it.

    90 degree rotation for the PSU so people can put 2 if they want(not sure why you would need to, but choices are always nice). Who is thinking of picking this baby up? I hope it's silverstone or Lian-Li, their build quality is amazing.

    GREAT IDEA!!! Seriously I think it is a great way to use that space wisely.

    The case is wide enough for two PSU's, but I would have to increase the height of the bottom chamber and, therefore the height of the case, to allow for the width of the PSU's which I don't want to do. Also, IMO, it would be detrimental to the case air flow as well as making the bottom chamber extremely cluttered....

    It was suggested by vinister, in the Computer Cases section, that the front panel may look better with a flush fan grill. What do you guys think?

    Why not something like this, so you can kind of keep that square look to the front. You can add your own creative design on this. Like a logo fan grill

    What if you don't want to use a 140mm fan on the hardrives.. it would be an empty hole..
    Everything has a nice square look to it and then a big circle in the front.. looks out of place.

    This is an interesting idea Eddie! Something like this would be essayer to fabricate, I think, than a circular grill. The thing is, I want the front grill to match the honeycomb pattern of the side grills, so maybe I'll see what a square grill looks like with the honeycomb pattern....

    Is this to be retail? i mean are you to mass product? Cause i keep seeing statements like "will be included" and i am a bit confused.

    Anyhow it is a great design. You could make the Grills squared out or put a logo on them.

    Also maybe put the switches above the front I/O

    With or Without the above it is better than many cases which are out there and have a pricetag bigger than 300USD Well done

    It's just a design at the moment I'm afraid, But I am trying to get a case manufacturer interested in producing it. Unfortunately, these are difficult times and even the biggest companies are watching their profit margins very closely.

    How come you don't have two mounts for rads on top and bottom?

    If this case is reasonably cheap, I'm selling my case and getting this. But I'd like to be able to put 2 swiftechs at the bottom and 2 120.4s on the top.

    Props on the best case I've ever seen.

    Also, since there's SO much space at the front, it would be nice to move the bay behind the fan a bit toward the mobo tray and make it optional to have a 160mm rad up front.

    I know, I'm extreme when it comes to radiator realestate.

    Edit: My god, I keep looking at how perfect a case this is. Get someone to produce this. haha. if it's below 4 bills I'd do it no question.

    Not a stupid idea. It is actually what I am doing. I made a third inner door that holds 4 HDD'd. It folds behing the mobo tray and can fold out after the otter door is removed to access whatever. It's not finished and was one of the cool mods I was doing.

    Hmmm.. looks really good!

    I think that the Square fangrill looks best.


    I don't know if this has been suggested, but what about a few USB ports on the top, that can be covered up?

    White looks bretty terrible IMO... but everyone has their opinions

  23. #123
    I think it looks pretty cool, my big thing is drive bays I always like computers with a TON of full size bays because you never know what the future may hold and I view cases as long term investment.

    I would like to see switches like this


    they have such a nice feel on them when pressed and I just love the look. I think something like this would make the case look sleeker!
