    I like the look of this, its got that solid industrial look. And its not full of holes for people who might watercool or perhaps may think about shoving 10 fans into their build (but they never do). Nice solid side panels!

    Im not really sold on aluminium though, this case only weighs 5.3kg, wont it be pretty flimsy? I used to have a lian li A05B (I think this was the model) and although it looked the part it was rather flimsy compared to a steel case. Something like this case, made of steel, no plastic or doors etc would be an instant buy from me.

    Until recently my PC was housed in another Lian-Li case, also all aluminium. It was not flimsy at all.

    A lot of people mistake "heavy" with "quality" and "light" with "flimsy." Steel cases are often both heavy and flimsy compared to Lian Li's aluminium cases which are usually both light and high quality. My Lian Li case is solid beyond the realms of sensibility, I could probably use it as an axle stand for a small car. My previous cooler-master steel case on the other hand might take objection to a stiff breeze, despite weighing more than double.

    I like the look of this, but wish there was a door on the front (I keep meaning to buy a case with a door but every time I try to something else tempts me) and that it was bigger... like obsidian 900d bigger. I can make holes all over the place for radiators myself when I need them.
