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:

Man I am glad I haven't bought any of their cases on any build I have done though I have looked at a lot of them for various builds in the past, maybe I won't look their direction anymore unless we get a case worth reviewing comes in from them.

My old (circa 2004) acrylic case sometimes felt like it would. It was pretty, but it was a POS. :lol:

EDIT: Looking at that makes me miss the old LCD I had on the front of the case. Waaay better than gadgets! Some company needs to build a case that includes something like this. :D

About the case: overpriced. I've seen chassis having almost same design as this from Aerocool or some company like that.
@Waco: That comparison list in the review is teh comparison list everyone will look for. Direct comparison of temperature with so many alternate chassis helps every reader. :)

Thanks for the comments! :)

:lol: That picture is from 2004...back when you actually needed a floppy drive to install RAID drivers and such.



EDIT: Didn't realize Blue logged me out of the HTPC. This is Waco. :P
