As an actual user of the blue H Frame on the right (I'm into extreme air/water overclocking) I can tell you this,these cases are revolutionary. Never before have I had the joy of benching a case/bench that was so easy to work in. One of the things you don't notice through pictures is the craftmanship. Everything is laser-cut,there is no plastic,anywhere.The HDD trays,fan modules etc. are completely new in design.It is so easy to change hardware,change cooling etc. Yes the price is high,but these are also limited edition. I know without a doubt this case will last forever. The configuration leads to a million mod options. Everyone is worried about dust. Why? Dust is a matter of life.With a closed case and fan filters,you get clogged filters in no time at all.I'm inside my case constantly anyways,it actually makes it much easier to keep clean due to the open nature of the chassis. As for temps,I have been completely blown away at the results. With a Corsair H60 with dual fans,I'm seeing a max CPU temp of 43c....that's at 26c ambient temp. 6core AMD Phenom II @ 4.3GHz/3100 IMC @1.61v,around 190w. I can tell you the case does act as a heatsink,the cold solid aluminum plate helping extract heat from any component in contact with it.
