I'm not fond of flashy cases, but the first two, are pretty creative. I wonder how they do, in terms of cooling performance.

Probably not very good, everything would be so crammed up together.
cooler master ftw, although the weird thing about the cm stacker cases w/ paint jobs are that they put a fan bracket by the window, but how will air get through?

In the IX you have 2x80mm
In the V11 you get 1x80 and 2x40mm but after seeing some internal pics of it full loaded there is space to fit 2x120mm on the grills at the sides.

Both cases have been designed for watercooling use as if you have the cash to buy a £220 case you can probably afford the £200 watercooling to go with it . When watercooled both have their resevoir placed in the circular window at the front which is a cool idea. Are there any other off the wall retail case designs people can think of I am running out.........
