I'm just happy that they've finally started painting the case interiour black and added proper cable management

Very nice case, I would have considered it if I had not bought the H440. Their placement of the Power supply would make me worry a bit about buying the GPU. Would probably have to fit everything I wanted in the case and then decide on the GPU options.

Also this case seems to me that it would be really hard to fit in a custom water cooling loop. I think this one is AIO only.

I'd been eying this case for a while after I saw Lian Li announce it. If I hadn't bought a Define R4, I'd probably be getting this instead.

My problem with a lot of ATX cases is that they're just too big, there's loads of empty space inside them that just doesn't need to be there, particularly if you don't care about watercooling (like me). Putting the PSU in the front is kind of cool because it means the case can be shorter so you don't have all that wasted space at the bottom. But I can see the issue that Gary describes in the review with the graphics card being right up against the PSU connections being a problem then, maybe if they inverted the motherboard tray instead?

Nonetheless, it's nice to see those like Lian Li pushing the boundaries of PC cases. They'd get boring very fast instead!
