    Lovely case. I hope they also move towards building SFF cases and continuing the design philosophy through.

    I actually think the price is perfectly reasonable considering it has the charging pad, PWM fan thingy, superb quality stock fans and tempered glass side panel, but agree that the lack of a Type C is quite strange.

    I cannot say enough good things about the BQ fans, in my experience they are superior to the Noctuas.

    I agree with you 'Biscuit', I too would like to see some SFF cases with the same detail and thought put into the design. I wonder if I could shrink this one in the washing machine ?

    Well now that is one absolutely beautiful case. Top of the list for when I win the lottery (or the compo...!)

    If space wasn't an issue I'd love to use this case for my next build. Love the idea of a fully modular case.

    This case just looks fantastic and I really like the included fan hub with pwm control.

    This case is so nice. I like the orange and black theme as to me it beats red and black

    It looks great, but I'm always wary of units with doors on the front having too great an effect on pulling cooler air into the front.

    A Lovely looking case, with great functionality and features.
    Orange and black always makes me think of Half life

    Does this have a windowless option? I can't stand the current trend of having a PC looking like Amsterdam redlight district. All components really do need an option to kill all lighting whilst keeping the PC running.

    I love those stock fans! I never rated BQ fans on my brother-in-laws rig until I switched them out for my Noctua's and I haven't gone back since!

    That being said, I do still prefer Akasa Apache's to the BQ but BQ are a very close second.
