Really looking forward to this case, seems excellent for the size and now we need some more smaller graphics cards.

I'll just quote this like that... tongue.gif

But yes, I am quite fascinated by that little cube.

So close, yet so far. Here's my "armchair review" judging the product by the pictures.

PRO
Another good looker from LL.
Aluminum LL is always good.
Innovative clamshell design for easy access.
Side panels finally slide on and use thumbscrews, unlike my PC-Q11B which uses eight tiny screws per side.
Big exhaust fan right behind where a tower CPU cooler would be.

CON
So right now it can take PSUs high enough wattage for dual graphics cards, but can only physically fit a single graphics card no longer than around 7". Really?
If front was vented, could have had a nice direct route through a tower heatsink. As is, air has to make some convoluted turns.

MEH
Could have gone SFX PSU since it is impossible to fit enough hardware into this chassis to need more than 450W.
I understand it is to fit the board horizontally (like a Prodigy or SG05) but the case is rather wide.
Could there be a better way to do the front ports so that there aren't long cables?
Near featureless front looks almost boring.
With all the ventilation on the side panel, why couldn't it have been extended on the GPU side to cover a wider array of GPU fans?
What's with the fascination on putting "external watercooling tube holes" on "enthusiast" cases? How many people stick their radiator outside the case? I would rather see that space used for a fan controller, if anything.

It's bigger and no better than PC-Q07.

I can dig it. If you can only use a short card then use a reference 6XX card with the short PCB with "The Mod" done to it. Stick the rad on the back there and good to go =D

Very good point. This is "the mod." Hmmm, site not loading for me - hopefully just a temporary glitch because the stuff is really useful.

Not temporary. Site has been down a while and his Artisan status was revoked. Loads of people with custom work waiting months for their orders (or their money back).

I don't think Dwood is making brackets anymore. Most people use zipties or modify the AMD bracket included with the AIO kits.

There's a link to the club with LOADS of information how to do it.
