It's actually very well balanced, the graphics cards are very heavy and the power supply is just about in the middle, together with the reservoir and mechanical drives at the front the weight is spread evenly throughout. For it's height the footprint is huge so it feels very stable both to hold and on a table.
Nothing in it bends at all and all of the components added serve only to strengthen the structure of the case even further, especially the acrylic tubing and 15mm thick midplate. As Justin says the floor itself is braced by the radiators which run the entire length of the case. It's a very rigid build and reassuringly heavy, the only consideration is if your desk and can withstand it.

Indeed, after multiple rounds of testing I can safely conclude that acrylic is one of the most capable materials used in PC construction, failing to yield in even the most extreme circumstances when aluminium and steel are rekt. As the case and loop are entirely acrylic I can only assume that the radiators and GPU blocks would be immediately destroyed.

I'm sure everyone will be pleased to know that sleeving supplies are arriving with great urgency RS Online and Shakmods have delivered copious amount of 16AWG wire and ATX blocks, however no sleeve as of yet.
