    Seem to remember seeing a triangular case about 10 years ago too.

    Although I do like the idea of it the final finish of this one just doesn't cut it, no I?O shield etc make it just look like a home made case.

    That rear airgap makes it look half finished, they could have made an aluminium plate with the rear io cutouts and it would have looked a thousand times better than that.

    Well it's certainly different, but looks like quite a niche product. I agree about the finishing of the air gap and I/O panel, it looks very out of place considering it's main selling point seems to be it's aesthetics.

    Tis at the back though so who really would see it? Unless of course it's central on desk

    That's very true, I suppose most people wouldn't have the back easily viewable. I just think it's a little strange they didn't spend just a little more effort making it look more polished.

    Well you would have thought so but as it's already quite expensive I guess that's a tradeoff. I guess could always cut out a backplate mounting slot yourself but then it's a load of hassle...

    I should get back into custom case making again - but you often don't get back the amount of money you spent

    Re: Azza Pyramid Mini 806 chassis launched

    If they were going to make the back so ugly why did they not just make the back vertical at 90 degrees to the base? That would probably have allowed them to put another RGB fan at the back to help suck the air trough the case from the front.

    edit: Also why did they not make the front I/O part of the frame?

    Re: Azza Pyramid Mini 806 chassis launched

    Ifr they get around to finishing-off the gap at the back and the I/O panel then i'd maybe try it...

    Re: Azza Pyramid Mini 806 chassis launched

    Honestly, for something meant to be aesthetic, leaving a half finished part at the back is not acceptable. Someone buying this might be wanting a nice looking case because it is on full display all the time and they want it to look neat. I was thinking "hmm, actually that doesn't look bad" and then saw the gaping hole in the back. Never mind the looks, it's a giant open hole. What if a fly gets in there and roosts at the base of a capacitor? What about kids and pokey pokey fingers? Dust ingress?

    The IO is a standard size. Why is this an issue at all? Surely it's just one more piece, made using the same processes as used for all the other panels.
