I'll wait until TT or Lian-Li or CoolerMaster make a case out of CF.

And CF costs more than high-grade aluminum... and doesn't transfer heat as well. It looks cool, and it's lightweight, but that's about it, benefits wise.

Dude, TT armor is NOT light. At least once you compare it to a nice quality aluminum chassis case like a Lian Li.

This might be the first quality product Ultra has made heh..

My P180 weighs a ton compared to my Lian Li. Its really surprising.

I think i might of actually pulled my back earlier lifting my P180 the thing is freakin heavy!!!

Back on topic, apart from the CF chassis it looks like your bog standard tower case, no compartments, no extra cooling, and feck me, a 8cm side fan!!! come on Ultra splash out a little and fit at least a 12cm fan, a 20cm would be even nicer

Other than the CF there is nothing else that is desirable about this case, I could achieve the same look with some CF vinyl on my P180

Case material really does not impact internal temperatures much. Heat goes into air... then the air is exhausted. Very little heat goes from air into case and back into air. Touch your side panels and they should be about ambient. Hence, little internal to external heat transfer.
Once again...

Well, tbh, the case is targeted more to lan gamers than oc-ers.
