If you haven't bought it yet there is a quite good mini review on the bottom(and next page) of this forum thread.

just gotta say... i wouldnt buy an exposed case when you can build one yourself... i've got an old plexi, screw and washer (yet still super awesome) 2 shelf bench i just dug out so i could frankenstein together a rig to do some tests on this P4 i just found... and its so much cooler cuz you can customise the bench with little addons specifically for your hardware... and its all dope and homemade and junk... ghetto but soo soo good!

Yeah but the Antec skeleton actually has a "wow" factor whilst your homebrew one sounds as if it has a "wtf" factor.

Sure,

If you get off on Silver plastic and huge low cfm fans.

After looking at the mini review, it seems like everything I thought would go wrong did.

The mounts for the CD drives look like arse.

Any heatsink bigger than a Freezer 7 will not fit.

It's almost entirely plastic.

Wire management is impossible.

And it cost's a fortune.

It could be a decent case with:

1. less plastic

2. more height for large heatsinks (TRUE, TT..etc..)

3. cheaper price

I think the cfm on the fans is fine...since its open air.
