so figure!
So that's why the 002 weighs as much as a car door.

Lower it to under $200

You have yourself a sale
I'll buy the case and sell it to you for $199 plus $600 for shipping.

It also includes a Topower 1100W power supply. The price is not justified with this unreliable psu.

Two differing opinions, do we have any proof either way?

The Topower PowerBird series of power supplies are the first Topower branded units we have reviewed to date and overall this series has a lot to offer users. From the units’ fully modular design to the units’ good build quality, good efficiency, and good voltage regulation these PSUs would seem well prepared to be able competitors in the ~1000w market.

There are, however, several differences between the two current members of the series that make the 900w unit the superior unit in the series including better DC Output Quality, better transient response, and slightly better voltage regulation. These differences seem to indicate that the 1100w rating of the higher powered PowerBird is nearing the upper limits of what this design is capable of producing in our test environment, while the 900w rating is near the designs "sweet spot." As such at $259.99 before rebate ($209.99 after MIR) the 900w PowerBird is a better choice than the $289.99 ($239.99 after MIR) 1100w PowerBird not only because of price, but also because it does its job more comfortably than its higher powered sibling.
It passed HardOCP testing, so that says alot.

For that price, I would expect the HP logo to be taken off.

How slick woud this case be?? Maybe Black Nickel Plated, On liquid??


I'd love to mod this case. WWCDD???? (What would Cyber Druid Do?)

Cable of holding 300 lbs on top of it supposably, but proven 200lbs by Maximum PC

The Price is hefty, and I'm not keen on an included PSU. I'm picky when it comes to parts

The aluminum is pretty thick, it'd be difficult to cut. I think they only people who can mod it are the ones with full machine shops... like CD
