xl-atx is a server motherboard format that would support 25 drives and dual sockets this looks like something for thread ripper, or some EPYC APU's

The case is sad, it is real sad!

Here we are in 2017, who in their right mind would purchase this huge monstrosity that comes along with the inability to install a 360 radiator? Even if it has Tempered Glass it still comes along with all the short coming of a case that is outdated.

Seriously. They didn't even attempt to update it.
4 USB 2.0 ports - HUH? Why? They didn't even attempt to add USB-C or USB 3.1 connections.

IIRC there were no front dust filters for this case. Only a dust filter for the PSU which required a reach around. The drive cage in the lower chamber is also mind boggling because the fan intakes are blocked by the tempered glass.

"Width: 344mm"

That has to be a typo. This case can't be more than a foot wide. Not to mention, the pictures clearly show that it's not half as wide as tall.

Tempered glass is very hard to scratch - that's one of its main advandages over acrylic/plexi.

Anyone know of a good redundant PSU that will support half that many SATA connections AND fit in this case?

So tempered glass doesn't scratch. Interesting. I would have thought it would be very easy to scratch / break.

The FSP Twins 700W (upcoming) radundant ATX form-factor PSU only has 6 SATA plugs natively, but can deliver 51A on its 12V rail, which should be sufficient for quite a few drives. Just need some SATA splitters (and hope that the wire gauge of the built-in cables is okay).
