Well you could also run bottom intake instead as well as front.
Airflow is quiet good for that case.

To preserve your system’s clean looks, front and PSU intakes are fully filtered.
How about the tiny holes at the top edges?

The only intake ducts are the narrow slits on the sides of the top and front panels, which also have thick perforation and behind the panels there's already dust filters which means there's double the air restrictions.
Isn't Fractal Define R5 similar (narrow slits on the front sides)?

Run the front fans at a higher speed to create positive pressure.

The top is intended to be used as exhaust.

Case really does look good the more pictures I see of it.

Can't wait for GN to get ahold of it so we can see if those vents on the side are enough for airflow.

Im starting to think that this is sort of a tempered glass Define S.

This is probably made for watercooling so its airflow is a weak

Every case by a manufacturer who has their hands in AIO's is designed to house said AIO's. This is a X62 box and the smaller variants are ideal G12 boxes because every air cooled GPU will fry sitting against the PSU shroud.

Yes, but is that a bad thing?

Fact is if you're designing your case around AIOs, especially your own, then you can make aesthetic decisions that simply wouldn't work in an air-cooled build.


Now, if you're building an air-cooled system I can totally understand you wanting a design that works well with your air cooler. Everyone should be looking for a case that works well, if not best, for their components. But that doesn't necessarily mean that a design that works best or is even custom tailored for an AIO is a bad case. There is a market place for cases designed around AIO cooling. This case appears to fill that space. If you're running an AIO cooled system this would likely be a great case for you. If you're running an air cooled system it may not work as well, but there are enough AIO users out there to justify cases designed around AIO cooling first and foremost.

See the need, fill the need. Doesn't mean it's best for everyone, but it's a good design for those it's designed for.
