Nice review guys, and you're honest.

Not a good case unless you like your silicon cooked and your hard drives noisy.

Yup, its just, the ideas all seemed to be there, just the attention to detail was poor.

Cheers dude. When I was told that I would be reviewing it I couldnt wait. I thought this would give me that extra bit of cooling to really push my hardware. Instead I ended up with overheating hardware, a loud case, and a rattle whenever I walked accross my room

aye

when i saw it, i thought WOW, ...

i thought it would be as good as the akasa mirrage, if not improve on it...

but what a disapointment

my akasa mirrage focuses on all the small details, like the inside is painted black, easiely removeable motherboard tray

just the little things that finish it off

i was contemplating getting one, but not anymore

Its nice to see something get a bad score though. It means that when things get a good score we can trust them and not feel that the website has been under order to give good reviews to everything

Thats definately disappointing, I thought this was going to be a nice, cheap, Stacker-esque case that would have been ripe for modding....

Shame really, as said it's not often Akasa drops the ball.
