The problem with that case is it pretty much FORCES you to watercool. It's not very multipurpose.

Good things come to those who wait.

That and the fact that there's a waiting list and I don't think they are actually being made anymore.

Correct, im pretty sure they dont make them anymore. We can still hope they make another production smile.gif I, personally, would love to own one.

I see that as a strength, not a weakness. Being multi-purpose introduces compromises, especially regarding size. If it would also have to be good at air cooling, then it would need to be bigger. If it would need to accommodate an ATX PSU, then it would be bigger. If people would want a rack of drives, again, bigger. I like that my Splash came with a special bracket for a pump, and long countersunk bolts for the radiators, but none of the usual bag of random shiny screws and drive brackets.

I would rather manufacturers make less multipurpose cases. There are enough do-all cases already. I think the variety (especially of SFF cases) could be better if vendors like CM and Corsair weren't locked into the idea of trying to appeal to all types of buyer, in what are essentially several different markets.

The real issue that stands is if Stickg1 is interested in a CS of his own, they are out of stock ... redface.gif, though WiSK said everything else I was going to say thumb.gif

I've also knocked on lone industries case idea of the L2 - seems interesting to say the least! smile.gif

Added you. The RavenZ01 was in the OP already.
Will you be adding a low profile card to the L1?

I agree, but its unlikely to happen. Manufacturers want as wide of a range of audience as they can get. That's why we have large m-itx only cases where even a matx board will fit in it.

If you want less multipurpose cases, you'll have to go with companies that specializes in that area or crowdfund your own project like the NCase did.
I recon Antec and SilverStone (CoolerMaster in the earlier days) are the few manufacturers that takes risk and make niche market cases.

Whoops, guess I didn't see it. No, I won't be putting a lo-pro card in there. The A10 is fast enough for anything I want to do with it, it will be getting a TV tuner card shortly though.
