    It has certain looks, but is it worth price premium over normal build with same (similar) components? No.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Personally, I'm a believer of less is more when it comes to case aesthetics, but I'm sure it'll make a lot of people wet in the trousers lol

    While the case design isn't to my taste (I prefer a 'cleaner' look) and it's anything but compact due to all the 'gamer' junk they've stuck to the case I do like a couple of design choices for the motherboard.

    Obviously so-dimms aren't for everyone, not that it makes a huge real world difference at same clocks, but I do like the idea of the ram being on the underside of the motherboard with the ssd in a case that clearly is access restricted on the normal side.

    why do they have to make these things look so fricking ridiculous! It'd be so nice to see something well built and understated ...without being lit up like a damn Christmas tree.

    I find it disturbing to see an upgrade video on "a sleek new line of desktop gaming PCs"

    I may be a bit old-school, but what use is a cabinet that you can't stand a coffee cup on?
