Yeah seriously, what's the point of the front glass? Unless you have extra desk space available to accommodate this case, (and who does??) there'll be no point because people will just put it on the floor where their ATX tower was.

The only usefulness I see with this case is if you could put an LCD display in the glass and have an all-in-one PC. Would be great if you were building a jukebox with touch screen interface, or some sort of terminal/console. But unless we can mount an LCD in the glass... what's the point.

LOL, might as well ask what the point of having a window on any case is then. Because as you said, "people will just put it on the floor." Which isn't true of all people. Not everyone clutters up their desk with so much other stuff they can't put their computer on it. I have a mid-tower and it sets up and to the side of my desk showing off all the goodies inside. Some people like to display their systems, other people bury/hide their computers away. To each their own man.

Yeah that's true I guess. I've never been a fan of case windows since my case is in my bedroom and I like it to be completely dark at night, even if my PC is on.

Without more details, I really can't see how that rear 140mm fan helps... It seems to be sucking from the back of the mobo which probably doesn't help too much, and the fan's frame is quite an ugly tumour on an otherwise pretty slick case.

If I had to put fans in within that shape, I'd probably try and fit twin 80/60mm fans on top of the mobo I/O shield.

Yeah that was the first thing I noticed when seeing the picture of the motherboard over that large fan. With vents at top and either side, how is this pulling any air off the area over the motherboard in the first place. The airflow design seems to pull air in through the vents then immediately down the side and and the back without anything actually passing over the motherboard.....

I think it would have been better to mount a smaller row of little fans along that top vent and behind the top of the case to pull air out that way. That would make far more sense to me than a giant 140 pulling at the back of the mainboard.

Good something new that is not just another boring black tower case.

I want one but a smaller one for a mini PC.....maybe it is small enough im buying one,.

I want to replace the clear glass with frosted glass or something though and put by the kitchen..,.. maybe I will take a laptop LCD pannel out of dead laptop and put it behind the glass....
