    COOLING SYSTEM
    FRONT, 1 X 80 MM (Not Included)
    REAR, 1 X 80 MM
    SIDE PANEL, 1 X 80 MM

    The whole case looks like it was built in 2005 or something and then stored for launch later on.

    Its not april fools so I'm confused.

    Antec 300 is just far superior.

    That's a previous model by the looks of it, certainly externally. I see no mention of 80mm fans on this new one.

    I agree these things look hideous though. Perfect for the sort of person who thinks painted wood looks good on the outside of a car.

    Nice to see ESATA coming through on another case though. Big thumbs up for that.

    Why is there a flux capacitor on the door?

    I think you're right, the side fan on the press release looks like a 120mm
