    Rotating everything inside 90* - whilst a nice idea, is gonna cause some issues....especially as, as I discovered with my inverted lian li case, some graphics card fans are designed to hang up-side down....if you run them the wrong way up or at an angle the fan chews itself to death.... :/

    Nice idea - will be interesting to see what people make of it, especially as presumably it means you'd have a load of leads and cables sticking out of the top of your case...

    Hard to see from the pictures what sort of aesthetic affect this will have, but I know that, personally, The back of my case looks a state and I wouldn't want that on display!

    Does anyone sell DVI cables with right-angle connectors? That would be a start...

    Well that's just an utterly cack cooler design.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    IGNORE THIS COMMENT - only leaving because robg1701 has commented on it..

    stick a large cpu cooler in there and then try sticking in a new hard drive, then call silverstone idiots.. you'd have to remove cooler to get to them.. who wants to do that?

    bet they forgot about that little detail when thinking of this 'wonderful idea'...

    The hard drive caddies look to come out the side...the CPU fan would in no way hinder them ?

    oh yeah.. just had another look and robg1701 is right.. internet speeds been capped to 100k, damn ie7 didn't load up bottom half of pic on mine, ..

    I've nearly learned to fully think out posts before posting.. another month before fully sorted i think, bear with me..

    still.. vertical hard drievs in a case this size? at least they squeeze in 6 of them..
