For the price they should have included the top 200mm. The interior looks excellent but the exterior is probably the ugliest think that I have seen in a while..... Why does CM feel the need to make the HAF series so ugly?

I must be in the minority, but the looks don't bother me. All of the reviews are positive. I might pick one up.

If you pick this case up please watercool it biggrin.gif Im thinking of doing a watercooling build in this one but im not going to have the cash for it until june... So would be nice to see what you can do with it, Me myself is thinking about modding in an 240 mm rad in the bottom chamber. BTW love you shinobi build.

Adam.
