Seems like plenty of room for Water Cooling. Looks decent as well and it is deeper than it is tall which is nice. The only negative for me is the HD bays aren't facing toward the open panel. Also they only hold 3 drives for such a huge case. And if you install any optical drives or media bays then of course it ruins the fascia. That is purely personal preference though as it has a very pointed look.

So the motherboard mounts are rotated? Looks like the expansion slots are aligned along the top of the case. Which might make cross-draft cooling a tad difficult, since it looks like PSUs are mounted vertically along the rear of the case where you would normally have an exhaust fan or mesh (at least from what I can tell in the user-submitted pictures).

The rebate says it's only valid if your ordered before the 1/31/11. So it's really $160 and not $140.

I don't know why the link is still there a month later...

Actually there's two rebate forms available, the one that is still valid (until 2/28) is under the "Get forms" link.

Amazon probably leaves forms up until the "postmark by" date on rebates passes.

This case isnt meant to cool from front to back like a conventional case. Thats why it has 3x120mm fans on the bottom to cool from bottom to top.

I have the white version, it is great for air cooling and yes the motherboard is rotated. Great for big video cards as they hang off the top of the case and therefore do not put much stress on the mobo. Have attached a pic of what the inside looks like with components in place

I have heard that they are not that conducive to watercooling setups however

And the fans on the bottom are 180mm btw not 120, they do move a lot of air, but they are a bit finicky. Good idea to put spacers in them to keep the fans from hitting their own grills

Very unique. If the fans were 120mm (thus able to be Gentile Typhoons) and the HD bay were facing out and could do 4 instead of 3 drives then I would say this is fairly solid. I think more than anything the cooling idea intrigues as hot air does rise. But, static pressure is also very important and I wonder how it does overall.

Nice case. How about its cable management?

Cable management is good, do wish they had rubber in the holes but they aren't sharp.


And to answer your question Roddimus, It is designed as a positive pressure case flowing from top-to bottom and it seems to work pretty well.

I think you can put 120's on the bottom if you really desire as it is somewhat designed for a dual 120 radiator there if so inclined.
