Yup, have decided this will definitely be my next case. thumb.gif

I just hope the local retailers(here in NZ) don't put a hefty premium on it... sadsmiley.gif

GPU fans in the wrong direction just like mine FT02. Should put intake fans on the left side. Otherwise you will have hot air going against cold air, maybe not a big deal but its annoying for me lol.

Otherwise its a cool case, though needs more premium looks with more alu.


I wonder when a manufacturers gonna release a case with tilted adapters for gpu and other cards, so you can make a really slim and different case.

Doubt you'll be able to fit any rad in the front in push pull. Push or pull would be the max with a 35x360mm radiator and regular length GPU.

But it doesn't matter because you'd be able to fit a 360mm up front, a 120mm in the back and a 240mm behind the motherboard tray and that much radiator will be enough to cool any setup. You'll have to be creative with the case to get watercooling to work well but it'd be rewarding and be pretty dam neat outfitted like that.

Most the fan mounts have 140mm fan mounts so you don't have to use 120mm rads, you can but a 360 in the front, 280 up top, a 180 in the back and probably another rad behind the motherboard tray biggrin.gif

I'm buying this case as soon as it's available!

I definitely want this case. Hopefully reviews show that this is the air cooler the name implies it is.

I like 120mm radiators because the fans I typically use don't come in 140mm PWM versions. I prefer them over regular 3pin fans. But one of these cases with that much radiator would be awesome. A mini affordable Caselabs Magnum M8.

Wish Caselabs would make a Magnum the same size as this case. I would buy two.

This has potential, and it looks pretty nice.
Not bad for less than 140$ case.
It looks similar to the MM H2GO or U2-UFO.
