i like the look of that case, it reminds me of my 600t, but more refined.

The amazing thing is that it costs about half as much as a new 600T!

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

I gotta say, bitfenix cases lack the modernness of most cases(strong HDD cages, lots of cooling), but they have very good looks IMO.

Cases are more and more directly comparable these days. I thought it was quite a nice case, all things considered. Still love Fractal Designs more than anything else right now though ...

One can't add GTX580 or any card of that length without removing one of the HDD cages. Fail!
