Its a shame about the temperature results, looking at it, it could be a prodigy beater. I'm kind of relieved it runs warmer though otherwise I'd be tempted to go get one !
I know the looks won't be to everyone's tastes but I like it, apart from the colour. It's nice to see companies doing something other than rectangular boxes.

£110 and you too can make your PC look like a space heater.

So far we've had kitty carrier, paper shredder and now space heater. Keep 'em coming folks.

It's been tested differently elsewhere and there results using real coolers look a lot more favourable than your low profile one. Think this case would be best under water anyway for the CPU. Can't say I'd be a buyer though the whole micro atx craze is not for me.

I think it's a nice looking case tbh, makes a change from the beige now black boxes we've been constantly getting.

If Corsair offered it in other colours it'd be an absolute winner. Green and blue as two others would make its appeal greater. I for one love it and already looking to swap to mini-ITX. Also, looks like a cool box at a glance...

Question, does it support PSU over 160mm, not sure reading the review here...

Also comes in all black:

Maybe re-read it then :P

By default, no. And as was pointed out this is mentioned in the review. As is the fact that if you remove the front HDD cage, you can install a longer PSU as there will be nothing blocking the extra length

I'll get my coat.

Although its kind of silly how small the selection of decent small psus is, development in that area is severely lagging behind the trend towards smaller mainboards and cases.

Would there be space to fit a dual 120mm rad in at the front with the HDD cage removed? (Thereby allowing 2x dual 120mm rads to be fitted in total?)
