|Seems to have been an age since we captured a sneak-peak at akasa's Omega chassis at CeBIT '08. So long, in fact, that we'd almost began to think the case would never show.
Today, we've had the reminder of all reminders; akasa tells us Omega is now shipping, and it'll be available in store from July 15th at a suggested retail price of Â£119.95+VAT.
If, like HEXUS, you'd lost track of this one, here's a little reminder. Omega is akasa's professional PC case, designed for "pro-gaming systems and high performance workstations."
The Omega, pictured below, is said to be the evolution of akasa's previous chassis' Mirage and Eclipse. "Mirage was described as the coolest case ever, Omega just got cooler," says Akasa.
The innards are optimised to house your water-cooling kit, and the case features a solid-aluminium front panel with full-height mesh ventilation. There's room up top or on the side panel for further fans or water-cooling radiators, and the chassis can house up to six 12cm fans in total.
Providing easy access to your gear, Omega has removable aluminium sides, top and front panels, as well as a stainless-steel removable motherboard tray.
If you'd like to see it a little closer, and with an exclusive Scan.co.uk paintjob, take a look at our sneak-peak from CeBIT earlier this year:
