DISCLAIMER: I figured it would be bad form to necro a 3-month old thread but if I'm mistaken please let me know. Speaking of which...

I'm finally in the market for one of these and shopping around I noticed a SKU for a new version on Amazon, RC-120A-KKN1-AMZ, available for order now with a ship date 2 to 5 weeks out. My keen powers of deduction have led me to hypothesize this could indeed be the 2013 update mentioned above - of course that's purely speculative, Google has yielded nary a clue.

Any intel out there on this version? Did they go with genuine faux carbon fibers or stick with aluminium for the fascia? Did they make any changes at all?

Wow!

I like that case but it's for an ATX Mini motherboard. So I checked out the one for a standard ATX motherboard:

It seems to be pretty much the same thing but able to handle the bigger motherboard. I've been thinking about this type of case for a while now but I haven't really checked out how they're set up and if they can handle the radiators from liquid cool systems like the Corsair H 100 or the soon-to-be mine, (when it comes out), Swifttech H220.

Once you get your setup I'd like to see some pictures.

Yes, that seems eminently logical but it's still weird - same thing is going on with the HAF workbench posted above, newer "AMZ" tagged model being advertised with a 3- 5 week ship date. Perhaps some news will surface in a week or two about the 120, hope they went with the ersatz CF!
