Oh yes. I love this case. In fact I think I'll get it. The only thing I'll miss is the external SATA dock. Corsair should forget about the black & white models but rather produce camo coloured variants. it would make a great addition to their range.

Love the styling of this case :)

Need to swing some chain at it and dent/scratch it up a bit and stencil on some army supply codes and chuck on a few explosives explosives stickers

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:

Style isn't for everyone? BS. The green one sold out on Newegg, and they also have black and white versions.

Honestly, it probably won't get better than this for this price range.

So what you are really saying is that it looks like a case?

I'm not sure I could trust your judgement anyway considering what crude box you have as a "case" lol. But it may have quite a bit of character :lol:
