    "Show the flow"... not unless you're using Mayhems Aurora!

    DDC pump not always the best option, either. Presumably this can be easily swapped to a D5?

    it's ok - looks practical and well done.
    On the other had - this price tag and no radiator included?

    I had to think about this, but yeah... this is an older case with a price tag of 100BP, so even though this includes a pump/res/distroplate combo, it's still on the steep side.

    I'm also wondering about some of the claims made. Gamers Nexus did a review of the case, and there's some problems with actually being able to install a radiator or even just fans on the bottom (they seem to run into fitment issues with the motherboard), and the top(side?) panel fan/radiator mounting seems to be blocked by the PSU for one of the fans, so you don't even get a full 360 rad there. And I'd definitely want a D5 with two GPUs, I don't see any indication you can swap one in (which would add to the cost).

    Honestly, I'm not sure why EK would partner on such an old case like this...

    I can understand that - maybe the design is old but it have its appeal. I really like the look of it.
    It is sad that it is so flawed regarding the actual usage.
    Alos for this design to be full I would expect them to have vertically placed GPU card and the case being more slim - as there is no need for space (you are expected to make WC build her xD)

    It looks like they do have a vertical GPU mount (if you look at the back of the case, you can see where it would get screwed in) but again, that would further interfere with mounting anything else on the bottom of the case, like fans or a radiator. Considering the kind of heat dissipation required for modern high core count CPUs, they are almost forcing you to have both a 360 top rad and a 120 rear rad, which is awkward.
