Default What are your thoughts on this?

This is a "New" Case/Chassis by Gigabyte. I guess they are jumping into the chassis market.

It's called the 3D Aurora. Although the name is pretty lame and over used, it looks pretty nice. And has some good features. Although if they are planning on selling this chassis they need much better pictures of it. The pics on their site are all too small. If i'm going to buy a case i want close-ups of every angle. Like newegg.com does.

Here check it out:

What do you think?

Here's a better pic.

Yeah, it does look a little plain as far as the exterior goes. It doesn't have much bling, bling factor to it. I bet someone who is really talented with case modding, could do a lot with this case. I think it has potential.

It is made to house Gigabyte's water cooling system, with places in the case made to attach the components.

Actually, I like the way it looks, as well as its features.

How much does it cost though?

I've seen cases like these go for $200...way too much for a case, I can buy a cheap generic case and mod it to the same extent as that for much cheaper...plus I like flexibility in my case to add things if I need to
