That is one expensive case!

Can we have a 650d review now please :)?

Isn't this a dinosaur case? Who the h?ll wants something this big willy waver...

I'm sorry but they cannot justify that price tag. Essentially just a taller TJ07 with a rotated mobo tray plus a few design tweaks to improve air flow. I fail to see where the additional £250 cost comes from other than a desire to line their pockets.

£475 for that?!

From the pictures alone it doesn't look like it is worth half that. Build quality is most likely excellent but then so is the build quality of the sub £100 (overclockers) Fractal Design Define XL.

It may be overpriced, but I look forward to seeing what those with too much money do with it!

I understand the motherboard rotation thing, but in this case, the graphics-card (if not watercooled) will exhaust against the general airflow pattern.

Aargh! the price! it comes in gold-plated or swarovski dotted for those loyal russian and arabic customers? :D

Yep it's far too expensive, I'd stick with the TJ07 for 700D for watercooling (where is your review for this case?) or the RV02 for an air cooled beauty.

Shave £250 off the price and all of a sudden this case is in the mix for future projects.

I like the case, but my GOD... HOW MUCH!?

Corsair 800D for less than half the price...

I'll never buy a case like that. Even if it's cheaper. Rather build my own. But man that is one motherlessly big case!

That is massive! But at a massive price. There are many other cases out there for water cooling that are cheaper. I have a water cooling setup in a Lian Li A71F for half the price of that case!

Flipping 'eck. That's expensive.

It's nice, but I wouldn't pay that even if I could afford to.

Two words..... the last one is "off"

Also, as this case is aimed at watercooling, why didn't you actually test it using a water cooled setup?

No-one in their tiny mind would buy this for an air-cooled setup.

What does this case look like when it has all the monitor, audio, usb cables attached?

Why so expensive for a case that looks like it was designed with modders in mind? I'd be petrified of making a mistake.

Oh Silverstone, why on earth how you created such a horrible looking case?

Jipa 8th April 2011, 11:47 Quote
I don't like the design at all. It just looks like it can't quite decide if it wants to be a sleek and stylish aluminum case or a gaming thing and all those 5,25" bays just don't server any purpose whatsoever.

You better have a damn good reason if you even think of buying one...

First word 'Rip'? ;)

I think it looks ok except for the bottom side vents 'slanted' design. They have tried to make it look 'arty' and failed imo.

Price is somewhat prohibitive.

It's important for our reviews to be comparable; as such we use the same air cooling rig in every case.
Watercooling loops also take a long time to build, and are very very variable fromsystem to system. Most people will use a motherboard in the cooling config we use, but with water cooling you can 1 rad, 2 rad, different size rads, bay res, box res, no res, 1 pump, low flow pump, high flow pump, etc. Very few W/C kits are the same, as they're customised to the cases you fit them into. As such, we wouldn;t have any comparable results, and the review would read as a "hey look, we built watercooling into it!"

There are just so many variables. As such, we demonstrated that the case could indeed accomodate a quad rad in its base, and tested with our standard air cooling kit.

Hope that explains it.

Back when the preview came out i didn't like the side filter holes and some other design elements. Now it's grown on me and i want one so badly it hurts. Especially because of the price tag.

I'm not one to complain about the price of something, if i don't agree with it i just don't buy it, but DAMN, what are those screws made of?! Maybe they should release a riveted version for half the price?

All I can say is lol.

It's a successor to the greatest watercooling case of all times. So they optimize it for aircooling.

Wait, WHAT?!

Get rid of the rotated mobo - it's a silly feature, my RV01 has it - make room for a triple or quad rad in the top and be done with it. Too much "we want this to be both watercooling and aircooling perfection"..

And last of all. I could buy a Lian Li case, and a TJ07 for that price. So:
