Wow that is a pretty sweet case. If they fix the fan issues and the other minor things this could be a real contender :) Very nice review.

Dang, the case's design seriously limits the front intake fan's potential.
Good review though!

Mhm, I am thinking on modding it by cutting the hard drive rack out and making my own with more room for airflow. If I have the time I will make a guide with the steps I used.

I might get this case...
I have the older version of the A+ El Diablo case.
It was $120, and this is only $100! dam...
