Ooooh the exterior looks very clean, Kind of reminds me of the EVGA Hardon Air, Sleek lines.

I have to agree that is a rather pretty case.

Hear hear. Nice review Gary.

I was bowled over by my Metis for the money it cost. I loved how everything was perfectly symmetrical too so you could orientate it however you wished (inverted, window right or left etc) it really was awesome. And I also loved how it pretty much stripped down into nothing too. No rivets in sight and every single last panel was separate.

The front panel on it is amazing too. 5mm alu IIRC. Sod to cut into though !

Really nice. I wonder if they'll be released in a range of colours like their smaller ones were? The black and the plain Aluminium would look nice but they did a really nice blue in the Metis.

this is probably the first thing Raijintek have releases that hasn't had the "meh" factor. most of their stuff has looked cheap, tacky or a rip off but this is quite a nice looking case.
When is Tom going to give you a GPU upgrade for your reviews?

This looks crackin'. You could easily come up with a unique coolant path with some uncommon radiators and still have room with for fan controllers, HDD's, large reservoirs, etc.

Is there enough room for a 360mm x-flow rad at the top?

The tech spec in the review states:

Quote:
Water Cooling
Front: Up to 360 or 280mm

Rear: 120 or 140mm

Roof: Up to 360 or 280mm
and these images suggest that is correct
However, it will ultimately come down to the design of your radiator and the size of the end tanks.
