    Sales of external optical drives must be rising!

    Also with M.2 Slots I see less need myself for storage. Nice neat little case there!

    I really dont see the point of a mid or full tower with no optical drive bay, they take up such a small fraction of the space relative to the amount of convenience.

    I can't see a front air intake, am I missing something?

    Or is it for watercooling only?

    And I have a full tower with a miniitx on top and 1 ssd, haven't used a dvd drive in literally 5 years. Nor can I see any reason to have one, they look a bugger, make a racket and anything I can't either get digitally or stream probably isn't worth having.

    NZXT are starting to push forward cases first taking out the 5'25" bays on the h44o and now reducing the amount of 3'25" cages to a reasonable amount I like where they are heading as someone who uses just 2 SSDs for storage

    Woo, I placed a preorder with Scan and the date of stock arriving was meant to be 28/10/14 but I just received a text message earlier today saying it was dispatched!

    Going to have a busy weekend then.

    Shame it's dropped £2 since I preordered but not going to complain over the sake of £2.

    So what do you think of the case?
