I actually don't mind it, I love the fact the side window doesnt have a fan grill in it like most do these days, +1 for that

If the DarkForce is compared with CM690 II Advanced Black (with transparent window side panel option), one should find that the DarkForce beats it by features and by price.

 

One thing for sure, the construction quality of a DarkForce is better than a CM690.  You have to see one actually to come to this conclusion as the pictures do not do enough justice in this aspect.

 

This is Gelid's first step into the case market and this is why the design is conservative.  According to the designer (ie tonychoi, who is also an OCN member too) of this case, if and when this first move is established, the next chassis will be more radical.

 

And lastly, he said this chassis is more geared towards the European and Asian markets.  Hopefully it will go to the North American market as well.

 

For those who are really eager to know more, read the thread below by Google Translate.

I like it, I don't see why you guys are being all picky. I like the window without fan grills.

The biggest problem is price. You can get similar features-heck, even the same look-for less.

So far nobody has bashed it really. We've just said that it's very similar to a 690II. If you happen to have a 690II, this case is a slantgrade and probably not suited for you. Also the MSRP makes it a bit pricey.

Also I was hoping for something as exciting as my Wing 12PL fans. Those things are pretty exciting really.

Considering the two posts above this one, what are better alternatives to GELIDs case? Preferably, cheaper smile.gif And are they better than a Corsair 650D?
