More seriously, it's really a strange case, in a good way smile.gif I like when devs think outside the box, it really give us something interesting. The only problem I see is "How does this case handle the dusty environment ?" Other than that, cooling must be really great with it.

I was a fan of the 900 for the airflow, but tremendously hated working inside of it.

Is the Air better? Price seems very steep, being $180. Wondering if it's truly worth it over lets say a HAF 922. Are the blue beams completely removable? If I was to get one, I would mod it to be green.

I am going to add a disassembled pic to the OP. Dust, if you keep it closed, you wipe dust off the air vents. If you add 2 front fan guards, it would make it almost perfect for a while. Not much dust in the side fan area after 6 months. Blew it out 1 sime with air.


The case breathes better and I have mine in the basement. Fans are aimed at each componenet and I let the hot air flow out the top.

I'm still here.

Strip it down to this and then you can paint the beams.

The case only uses intake fans so air can't settle because it's getting blown away by the intake air. At least that's what I know and since it kind of works I can't complain. The only thing dusty about my rig is my H50 rad.

Yeah, I really don't notice any on my 120, but I just put it in 3 weeks ago.

I'm still here.

OK cool thanks... Is this case worth it though for the hefty price tag? D:

Also is it possible to remove that bottom mesh?

Well I bought it for 180 euro (not dollars) and I came from a NZXT Tempest and I was impressed and yes as far as I know it is removable. I think you can even remove the beams.

Yeah, the entire case comes apart, frame included. It is very light when packed full of hardware. You have to like the design and the modular options to really appreciate the beauty though. It performs pretty well too, especially on air. I stick a 120mm fan directly on my memory and cpu and hang it from the preferations on the top. That drops temps about 7C on the CPU for me.

I'm still here.

here we go. Sorry for the horrible cell phone pictures. I don't have a camera and while I am saving up to buy one, it will be a month or two before I can buy it!
