I may take a look at this... Thanks.

Looked at the Bitfenix. I personally have my issues with all the wavy lines on the front. It's nice looking but I like a bit less "flare".
The bitfenix also has pretty terribad cooling according to most reviewers

Those cases are designed to look clean. In my opinion the case itself shouldn't attract attention, your gear inside should. Anybody who actually cares about computers isn't going to be impressed with LEDs and a funky case, they will look in your window and look at what gear you have.

It's like a frame on a picture. If you have a very nice looking painting you don't put a huge gaudy frame on it. you put a very simple minimalist frame on it and let the picture attract the attention of your eyes.

This is exactly the idea, thanks! Same with our PSUs. A lot of people ask why we went with black wires on the cables and connectors and not a more bold color decision. Or why our PSUs are all black instead of like some of our competitors PSUs with green or purple fans or whatever.

The design philosophy we follow is that hardware should look clean, reserved, and strong. It shouldn't look garish or ridiculous. Power cables (and all wires) should fade away into the background or be hidden behind the motherboard tray, and your motherboard, video card, etc, should take center stage. Even our CPU coolers are fairly subtle compared to what they could be.

Some people think that's boring - but it takes all kinds. There's plenty of glowing blue/green/amber/pink things out there to buy already.

But there's always the 800D and HAF X.
A bad ass case like that should be able to accomodate a badass EVGA SR-2, no?

Well it doesnt :/
