I was looking at the fan openings at the bottom of the case. The fans at one end don't have much of an opening. Seems like it would have been better to have all the openings the same size.

Yep pretty much exactly actually.


I'm stoked to see the final configuration, I'm curious how the airflow is going to work.

@FrankW, there's actually a good amount of space between the fan blades and the door, it doesn't really restrict that much airflow. Plus, it gives off a very aggressive style Strong.

I hope you are right. In most cases when looks triumph over function, function loses. I personally would have preferred nor-restricted openings.

software controlled fans and lighting, are you guys trying to bring back ESA or something??

this looks literally insane, in a good way. What's the price point?

I could never have imagined you guys developing something as awesome as this when I first purchased my rig Awesome

Really not liking the ports on the side and the overall lack of any front access to anything. I don't want to have to stand up to put in a disc, or keep the tower on the floor to do the same thing.

Don't like the front either.
I buy a custom build mostly for looks and like to show of the front with some fancy looking addons 5.25 bays.
I have bought 10 -12 cases and always backed away from cases with front doors on them.
 
Other then that it looks good but need more specs on it.

From the way it's being described that front is not even a door. They put the audio and usb ports on the side and Alex said the optical drive will load from the top.

Some serious issues/questions are: What about multiple optical drive bays? I know many people that have two, one DVD and one BluRay. What about hot swap bays? I use one of my two hot swap bays on my HAF X and it's not uncommon for people to need one or two.

Also with the lack of standard bays and ports on the front the case actually looks ugly. You will find a small minority of people who want simple ugly looking cases but soooooo many cases on the market have some styling to them because people like it and prefer it over a plan box.

For specifications, etc... we'll have to wait until it's fully launched.
