It's not worth $700 (to the majority of us). It's a nice case, though, and would cost a couple hundred dollars if it were priced normally.
The point of it is that it's great design, and only designed for a niche (affluent and/or dedicated enthusiasts who want the "perfect" case for cooling), so they can charge niche prices for it.

It's more like a concept than a real product. I would liken it to an old sports car - seems like a nice idea till you realise it has no rear visibility (which doesn't really matter anyway, since it won't fit in that parking space), no boot, no rear seats, no security, will cost a fortune to run and won't get you from A-B any faster than any other car.

^ u called it a " boot " clearly its called a trunk haha.. does it sound as weird to you when i call it a trunk as it does to me when you call it a boot?


personally, i think that is a headious looking case, you couldnt give that case to me, and anyone who pays $700 for that is a fool.

i love my HAF X case ( cept its freaking massive ).

Nope. There's a fair amount of American culture over here.

It was probably the result of the industrial design team at thermaltake being bored
