Not bad, screams "mod me" though. Needs a PSU shroud, the GPU support brackets confuse me but I could see one modded to hold a res as well as the GPU.

The aestetics are hit and miss for me too as I like the flush glass but those 4 screws still irritate me they're like buttons on a swim suit.

It's better but it's worryingly close to Corsair prices for it being a Bitfenix.

I also noticed that some of the panels have the famous "cheap case" browning. IE - the paint has a brown hue to it.

I do like the front though, but having said that I usually like at least one thing about all Bitfenix cases.

Hi

It looks interesting. The asymmetry of the window panels and the lack of false floor are kind of off putting. I also don't like the pseudo 5.25 bay line in the front. This case does get the "what could I do with it" line of thinking going on, so that is a good thing.

Truth be said though, I would probably not buy it at this price.

To me it looks cheap & nasty but better options around than this.
