love the case! only downside it i think the front is abit to plain but fixable the design is lovely really like how the drive chassies twist and come out because i wanted to mount those air cooled seprate ones,it gives you alot of options for water cooling also, 10/10 for design any idea how much one of these would set me back?

Not below $100, probably just above. $109+-

I am going to be modding the top of the review sample i get to put a 360mm 45mm thick rad in the top, and i am going to put my 240mm 60mm thick radiator in the front.... all internally. i am going to be using a bitfenix fan controller to control the fans, when im just ideling, im going to program it to turn off the fans on 360mm rad, then when i start to game and the fans on the rad will turn on. im pretty excited about it. ill be cooling my sig rig...

If you want something rather similar for cheap you got the Corsair 200r.
