Lol...total knockoff....but I've alway thought thermaltake quality to be better so I'd be interested in picking this up as my 900 is struggling, some of the small detail clips are worn from use and are failing, not holding things in place like they did when new.

i dont like midtower cases,

i have 5 hdd setup, and 4 dvd burners.....

theres no way in **** i could get decent airflow in a midtower case with this much cabling (even though i modified the **** out of it, it would still be bad)

I agree, looks better than the 900...but they had the benefit of years of reviews on the 900 to improve on. I do like the orientation of the HDs on these, easier wire management.

The HDs, too me, seem to kill abit of airflow. With the 900, the cages are inline with the flow, so if you have no drives, you got great flow.
