Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

For men and women alike, often times the opposite gender is much more appealing from the back side, turning the Cubitek ATX Ice around follows this rule a little. It doesn’t have a cute butt but I guess it is still a big one.


I got to this part before seeing who did the review, for some reason i thought it was Red or someone. I was very concerned.

Then i saw it was Blue, and it all made sense.

A while, it just isn't used much because we don't often have a use for it. When we do get a clunker, you betcha.

Am I the only one who finds their philosophy kind of redundant after seeing the price of the case?
“Build something we would want to buy at a price we want to pay.” So are they saying that they would want to pay almost $300 for a computer case?

Oh god I didn't even see the price, I thought it was around $80 :-/

At $80 it would be a nice case I think. At nearly $300 it doesn't seem so nice at all. :lol:

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

Absolutely excellent review.

Almost went for this case at one point too, but as Panda pointed out, it's expensive and it does have a fatness to it which seems quite unwarranted. It's basically butchery of the FT01 at higher price point.

Also, the rocket scientist that made it mandatory to use an allen wrench should just be strapped to a rocket and sent to the sun. Sure it's "different" but it's also tedious and stupid.
