    The power supply solution is what we call in engineering (and any other field really) "a bodge". If it's all proprietary inside anyway, why not make the case slightly bigger and fit a custom designed PSU within? The form factor really demands lower power (or more efficient) parts, a single PSU, and obviously a lower price.

    I didn't even read the article, I just read the specs. 2 plugs!? Which idiot thought people would be OK with that ?

    It should come with a 2-to-1 plug adapter. Perfectly safe for a few hundred watt draw on a 13 amp socket

    Pay £2100 and get a bodged-together power supply solution?

    That is inexcusable.

    How hard could it have been to fit a power supply within the existing chassis envelope? But yet ASUS insist on those stupid bits of pointy plastic that needlessly add to the overall physical volume.

    Odd, the Silverstone RVZ02 is basically the same as this, but can fit a (silent) SFX-L PSU inside which means no large power-brick to deal with.

    Any case that isn't a cuboid loses out by overall volume, as the V shaped cut in the asus represents a lot of non-computer space. You see an identical effect with curved cases, or indeed anything that isn't a box. Measuring the inner frame would give a better measure of how well the components have been jenga'd, by sticking to the classic cuboid the raven case gets an extra 1-2" (by eye) in length and height.

    If overall volume is really important to you, get a box case. If you want anything that isn't a plain box, you'll have to accept that it's going to be a bit bigger
