I want to see just two fans, large ones ducting air from the bottom through a filter and out the top through "air ports" (lol) on the sides. I want a flat top, handles on the sides, etc. I think this case just might be doing exactly that.
It's just a prototype. I want them to change the feet of the case because the design right now looks weird and cheap. Hopefully the grill mesh on the side have filters and be able to mount 2x120mm fans.
I still prefer my PowerMac G5 case I converted into an ATX case. The design is just so efficient for air flow. My fans stacked up so it is a wall of moving air in from the front and out through the rear of the case. Unlike most case designs where you have air flow coming in from multiple directions causing all sorts of eddies and fans working against each other reducing efficiency.
Assuming the front is slotted for air flow all the way up this case does hold some promise. I also wonder about all the external 5.25" drive bays. Who are all these people that have numerous optical disk drives? It would be sleeker without all of them. One is enough for most people.
Well i like it, sturdy, clean lines, a little bit eclectic. My guess is that is targeted to a less flamboyant crowd in the gaming and designing areas. It's nice to see now and then a different aproximation in pc cases

Looks like they're going for ventilated side section (between the front aluminium and rear aluminium parts), possibly wrapping all the way around. Might be good for ventilation, or horrid for dust buildup. I think that if you look close enough you can see three 5.25" bays and what I think may be one or two front 120mm fans, unless I'm seeing things. Don't see the front I/O panel, so I'm assuming its in that little cavity up top. It's not a terrible looking case. Not flashy, but the lighting either isn't doing it justice, or there is something is off with the metal (I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on bad lighting, though I have seen people who would paint aluminum such a "unique" color). At the very least it will be interesting to see the details on the case at some point. Could turn out to be a real gem.
