    Looks like it would have poor airflow. HDDs especially.

    Nice idea, think the airflow will be OK being raised off the ground and that much venting. A huge monitor stand could block things up a bit but I guess the wight limits stops anything too huge going on. Was tempted but about twice the price I'd be willing to pay.

    Looks nice enough, also I am not a huge fan of the colour scheme. I would also be reluctant to give up precious desk space for it, when a Fractal Design Define Nano S can simply be shoved under the desk.

    I will wait for the Thermaltake rip-off, errr... homage.

    Re: The Cryorig Taku desktop ITX chassis has hit Kickstarter

    ps we all ditched on-table PCs for a) better airflow and cooling, and b) to free up space on the desk top for better table use. I do not want to go back to having all that desk clutter again - all the cables bundled at the rear of the unit above the desk and pushing it out from the wall, blocking the air vents, etc etc. Yeah, I remember it all too well. There's a reason we moved on.

    I like what looks like a key start on it -just to the right of the PC. :-)
