Nice to see the trend for ugly-as-sin styling is still in vogue (vomits)

Wow, someone made a Chieftec knockoff in 2010.

Why is there no P193 on the list?

4 water cooling holes at the back? That makes this case twice as good as any with just 2!

Obviously you guys have lost the knack when it comes to cable tidying. Back in my day we didn't have no holes to hide it all away in! We just pinned it back and called it a decoration.

Yeah, this case misses the mark in so many ways...

That picture of the inside with no cable management made me lol.....brought back memories of my first PC self build....

Fugly.

That is one unholy mess of cables. for the price you'd at least expect some sort of cable management.

"instead of merging into smoothly it.", "This allows easy air to easily flow in and out the case", and "it feels as though this a case" come on guys, you're better than this.

The case also appears to have 8 expansion slots, which is a tick box most other cases miss off, which I wish they wouldn't.

This makes my HAF 932 look sleek and attractive by comparison. Now I don't own the ugliest case around. Hurrah!

The point about this case not having modern cable management features is valid. But I think the photo exaggerates this to the point of being hideous because you made no attempt to organize it at all. Not a single cable tie in sight. Are they really that hard to use?

Yay, another bog-ugly case with mediocre cooling.

Thanks for the spots, fixed.

Honestly, you can't get the editors these days :)

Saw it at the shop the other day. As good as the airflow might be, it's just incredibly ugly. Trust me, it's even uglier in real live, the pictures don't do it justice. The design of this case is a pile of FAIL In Win.

I waiting to get my hands on the Dragon Slayer case from InWin and see how well that is.

Hey, if you need an extra proof reader I work for snacks, and minor praise :D

I think the guys who actually design cases for a living got together one weekend, got drunk, drew some ugly cases on napkins for fun and then somehow they made a bet about whose company could sell the most of these ugly, drunk drawn cases...

C'mon now, you guys didn't even try to tidy those cables! A few sticky pads and cable ties and you could hide all the cables in the section under the DVD drive. A simple cut to measure piece of thin black card or paper would stop the cables being visible through the holes. Or get out the dremel to cut a few holes to hide stuff behind the mobo.

About the cables, if this is how the case is, then that is how it should be pictured and reviewed. Why do ppl want to be decieved?

lol cases do not tidy cables magically for you. It's something you have to do yourself when building a PC. A few minutes of work and those cables could look a million times better.

Sure, it would never be perfect given the poor case design, but they didn't even try to make it more pleasing to the eye.

Mediocre? I'd say that that it's cooling is actually rather good if you look at the cases it beats.
