That looks like a pretty cool case. I might consider this against my old favorite (the Armor) if I ever need another big case. It's a big and open design without looking too gaudy or spacey. I like it! Nice review.

If I didn't have my computer built in the entrails of a Compaq right now, I'd definitely get that case.

That is awesome, great review (nice touch with the V10 too)

thanks guys, it does not take up too much space but gives you quite a bit of room to play around inside. The wire management is a great feature of the case as well

I saw this one at CES and it is pretty slick. They actually designed this for their gaming team.

Well... just because they say it's a full-tower doesn't mean it is one :) The term has gotten VERY fuzzy in the last few years. But if you're old-skool enough, you know that this is really just a big mid tower. A nice one, don't get me wrong, but not a full tower by the old standards.

I think a lot of old-skoolers think of something like this when you use the term 'full-tower'.

AGREED
My old 901AD was a fricken beast, it was just about those same dimensions and like 35 pounds empty.


I look back at that case though and wonder why I ever got it (a full tower was just the "thing" to have I guess), that was EXTREME overkill for my Athlon rig...
:lol:

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:

Touché, though I think they need to make stretch towers as opposed to full towers (make them longer) since video cards don't seem to want to get shorter. I hope the next gen cards get smaller again.
