It looks like a fridge to me, and over all it looks just boring to me.

I'm thinking 3xhdd bay in the top with a 240 rad, 240 rad in the front and plenty of room on the bottom for res and pump. I'm getting to like these more plain cases

i'm really liking the sound of this case! I'm with you Greenback, i'm really coming to like the simple clean cases. This also would be a great case by the looks of it to start watercooling (Still hope to do that eventually)

One thing Tom says in the video though which made me like YES!!! I HATE THAT!... When he talks about the annoyance of daisy chained sata power cables. Especially with a lot of cases now featuring hidden SSD drive bays.

What is the solution to this annoyance us builders come across. Braided cables? or is there such a thing as single or dual Sata power cables

I'm not quite sure what to do for the best. Originally I was going to swap my current rig over to a new case, which would now be this but I have been talking to Rick recently about building a new rig completely next year, now I'm wondering if I should use the case for that and spend a lot of time getting it all matched up nicely.

The only problem is I'd really like the Sabranco board to go with this, but thats Z97, my next build would be Skylake or Broadwell...help!
