My own input:

I must admit, I actually like the design. But at this size (A whopping 47L in volume), its bigger than a lot of mid towers, should this really be an ITX case? It makes Fractal's recent Define S Nano look small.

At least a nice looking case (imho) since a long time biggrin.gif

That's really beautiful! I wish they would make an MATX version though.
So many good ITX cases, and no love for MATX. sad-smiley-002.gif

I do like the design. I welcome any change in case design.

With that said, are two 240 rads good enough to cool a CPU/GPU combo efficiently? I'm asking honestly.

Its plenty, the general rule of thumb is 1 120mm rad + a 120mm radiator per cpu/gpu.

Yep, with two 240s or two 280s you would have no trouble cooling a 8/10 core CPU and a dual-chip GPU. You wouldn't get record overclocks, but you could still have a cool and quiet OCd system. I really wish this case were Micro-ATX though--I still think its the best form factor and balances features and pricing much better than ITX or ATX.

Currently have 2x XSPC EX240 cooling a 4790K and two 780s. Big OC on everything, kill-a-watt says roughly 750W at the wall (so probably 650ish watts actually being dissipated through the rads). No problem whatsoever.

For some reason in my mind I had that it was 120mmrad + 120mmrad/per component for a total amount of rad space.

But that's pretty nice then. I wonder if push/pull can happen on top? It looks like it would work very easily up front.

...I'm pretty sure that this was the concept case that NZXT was showing off in their press suite at CES this year. That was a relatively quick turn-around then.

Interesting design, but I can't say it's my favorite. I would have loved something that followed the consistent and minimal look of the H440 and the S340. I'm happy that NZXT is willing to try new things, but at this size, this case falls into mATX territory.

I wish companies would focus on Fractal Design's Node 202 when thinking ITX. I mean, I can only imagine how gorgeous a case like this would look if NZXT designed it.
