There are plenty of things that would fall under the same category then. My Switch 810 is clearly at the very least a noticeably lesser version of this, with fewer awkward gimmicks and better actual features.

It's more like an improved Switch 810 with a Phantek flare to it.

Good case. It follows the standard 360 at the top 240 on the bottom layout, which has been used by various cases, and that's probably the best layout for a case of those dimensions. You add in Phanteks' build quality, attention to detail, and good pricing, you have a very capable case. I can see this case being pretty successful if it's priced within 750D range.

I helped a friend build a rig in their Enthoo Primo, and that case is nearly flawless when it comes to the ease of putting everything together, organizing cables, and overall build quality. I'm expecting the same for this case.

I mentioned this in the 760T thread, but after having 2 fans go out on my Switch 810 in a year and a half, I'm looking for something new. The build quality on that case just isn't what I expected and having to jury rig it for a tube res and pump is a pain. I wanted to get the Primo, but the notch in the res mounting bracket not being able to support a 780 Classy killed it for me. Hopefully they learned that lesson here and it will fit. Also hope they don't take 8 freaking months to get it to production status.

Likewise, the individual parts (GPU/CPU) have their own cooling solutions that are vastly more important then the ambient times of the case. The ambient temps outside the case are more significant and, frankly, the case can not adjust for that.

I don't understand why people buy such expensive cases; unless you are filling them with 4 GPU, 8 HDDs, etc. where the cooling and cable management is actually needed. tongue.gif

Truly, you are OCN's greatest armchair engineer.

Not bad, looks decent.

Thanks, I thought I got that one but evidently not redface.gif

That's all personal preference; everyone wants the biggest and baddest. Go to the SFF forums and look at the club for those with badass mitx/matx builds and there's a ton of watercooled projects at a fraction of the size.

Before you rabble about watercooling I would suggest you read up on the subject. While many do underestimate how much you can cool with smaller radiators, you are reversely clearly overestimating its ability.

I didn't say anything about it's ability. Also, I'm not talking about smaller radiators either. Plenty of the smallest cases can fit perfectly good 120-240mm radiators, which will easily outcool anything air can do.
