I mean, even Lian-LI has been pushing some really nice dual and tri chamber cases but that Atlas is nice. Man, they are pricey though (this and those Lian-LI cases).

Worthless junk, they think the only swing-out we need is for the CPU sink.

1999 called, it wants its case back.

Cool case. Too big for my tastes.

What the frack is going on with that picture? What did they do to the radiator? It's not even mounted! And apparently the author has been chewing on it?

I love Lian Li cases, 100x better than the cases that are made of plastic and cheap 1mm thick steel that is painted. Lian Li cases are almost always more elegant and simple than the typical "extreme GAMER CASE with crazy lights and weird shapes". They always keep to the same design and style, My next new build will be a lian li for sure, yes my current case is old since I was on a budget, but seeing my brother's cases over the years made me like them more.. Elegance appeals more to me than "Gamered" out cases.

the external looks very cheapish but that bracket mount is very clever, love the idea but you won't be able to use high profile heatsinks if you are utilizing the bracket.

This looks like a throwback from the 1990s.

I knew something looked unusual about that case. Funny thing is that I'm still using an older case that actually does mount the PSU on top, and even I'm not used to seeing new case designs like that.

It does look like a modern reinterpretation of a standard case from 15 years ago.
