That is certainly a unique looking enclosure.


Are those presumably 40/60mm fans loud or are they fairly low rpm fans?

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

There fairly quiet, you can hear them spinning if you're close to them. If you've got the F-35 on the edge of your desk you can't here a thing.

Nice review tacohunter. Just bought one of these as I needed one, the price was right, and based on this review. Personally when I first saw it I thought it looked a bit like boba fett's/jango fett's ship Slave 1.
