I like it. I wonder if it'll have dust filters though...

To me these seems a bit like SUVs - look silly and are in-practically huge. Then again, I suppose it's the perfect case for everyone that have three 5870's, six hard drives and intent to watercool the whole thing.

I can't stand the aesthetics in the HAF series, I honestly can't see anything appealing about them apart from the red & black theme but that alone doesn't make one bit of difference.

Sick, GROSS!

Functionality over form means that it isn't going to be a stunner.

Who the **** will stare at your tower anyway?

Oooh less of the hostility please, it's still relatively early here in the UK. In regards to your rudely asked question, I have a lot of enthusiast friends & colleagues as well others who will be intrigued by my 'tower'. Unfortunately not all of us can dwell in the luxurious shadows of seclusion seldom coming to surface only to see Mum & Dad frowning.

2011 can't come quickly enough for Coolermaster and me. I, for one, am seriously tired of these socalled "gaming cases". They're usually fugly as hell. :)

I love the fans in the roof, but I would like to see some sort of cap, or slider that you can use to cover the holes to keep the dust out when the PCisn't on.

but then again it is quite a belligerent design.

... and lose all the fun in building, customising & softwaring something I've built only to then not be able to do what I intended to do on it (that's playing games & overclocking)?

No thanks!

Who'd want to put a triple rad in the roof?

I'm already trying to hunt down two 200mm radiators...

I love my HAF 932 but that 942 thing just stepped over the line and became too ugly.

The 932 has a triple rad mount, as does the Corsair 700D/800D. I'm sure there are plenty of cases that would fit a triple rad.

Looking good, although I wonder how long it will be until I realize that perhaps the case design is a bit too aggressive for me. That's what happened with my CM Stacker 830. I had an older PC placed inside a Wavemaster which still looks gorgeous, albeit somewhat boring now. My main workstation uses a CM Cosmos with a windowed side so I think it's currently the best of both worlds being sleek but still is unique.

932 didnt fit my old rad, not enough space. :(

I've updated page 1 with a price: it will be ~£150 MSRP.

Which rad? It fits an MCR320 just fine. It's not an issue with fan spacing, so it must've been thickness that was the problem in your case?

The panaflo fans are 38mm :(

The Corsair will easily handle a medium thickness rad and 38mm fans.

It sports an industrial and ruggedised aesthetic, otherwise known as looking like Darth Vader's beer fridge
:D that is sig worthy tbh

You say CM is working on a HP-ATX case?
Hazchem 26th May 2010, 13:33 Quote
Impressive case, it's just a shame it's so pug-fugly.
