My cousin has one.

It looks 10x better in person. But the only problem is that the door on the front does not open as smooth as they make it look. It just flips open.And it smacks against the case really hard. There really is no fluid movement to it.

But his temps are very high........

His computer setup is
Dual CPU *MP's 2400+*
2gb PC-3200 Crucial
X800 Pro 256mb 256bit AGP8x (running at 4x)


His CPU's are running at 50c all of the time. Sometimes upwards of 60c

Compared to his old case he shaved off 10c on average. But he must have something not setup right on his rig. Since those temps are just unacceptable.

He was looking for some pics next to someone/something so he can see how high/wide it is.

IMO, I wouldn't buy this case, unless they adjusted the case to have a blow-hole at the top.

yeah but its just not the same as seeing it about the shark. would the front intake fan work very well if the door was closed? not sure if the gill things in the door have openings behing them or not

ive looked at few reviews of the asus case and they all said the cooling was pretty plus im really liking the new black one
