Not too shabby. I'm not too keen on the USB/Audio jacks on the top of the case, though. I know that frees up room for another slot up front but it makes it difficult to access the jacks if the unit is under a desk and I've found that headphone/mic jacks on top of cases are just begging to get damaged if the wire gets yanked. (seen that happen more often than you would think) Other than that, it's beautiful in its engineering. Might be a bit "rugged" for some but it gives it an "aggressive" look. And the location of the fans/internal drive bays is good. I would be totally comfortable buying this case if it weren't for the plug locations on top.

Good case, awkward name.

The side panel is labeled "TYPE01" and I keep reading it as "typo one"

I think they should have went in the same direction as their cards...

I saw a hands-on review of this thing on NCIX. NCIX liked it, but when I watched the video, the metal of the case looked rather thin for the motherboard tray, and the plastic 'body' seemed rather cheap and flimsy for a $130-$140 case. That's just my opinion on it though, yours might be different when you take a look at it either here or elsewhere.

I like how finally they are getting rid of the Disk drive bays in cases I mean most people only need two at most if that or if any.

I would like to see these lit up first see how it looks happy with my Enforcer still.

I think it would look much better without the curvy things on top and bottom.

Wow, a case that actually looks good! (IMO TO ME)

Not bad. They should consider doing a small run in olive drab or desert tan. At least for advertisements.

I *really* like the overall look of this case...very no-nonsense and utilitarian. Any chance on a hands on review? I don't see any local retailers in my area with it in stock yet, even the one XFX lists as a retail distributor on their website :/

NCIX has it for pre-order (http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=93940&vpn=TY-PE1B-3000&manufacture=XFX)
