    EVGA enters the case market.

    I really like the look of this case and I think it is pretty cool with factory fitted water cooling.

    hmmm, not exactly sure what to think, i like it when good companies expand into other markets, (look at what corsair has done) but EVGA is small, really small, last time i called i got the VP of the company, i worry that they might spread resources too thin

    Don't really care for the spiderweb top, but interested to see what sort of water cooling it might come with.

    According to Wikipedia they have 250+ employees, and pretty much everything they do is top quality except for using reference coolers on some of the later GPUs *shrug*

    compare that to Asus, MSI, or Gigabyte who have thousands of employees, EVGA is tiny, but still awesome, i ordered both my 590s and 690s from them, but like i said, i wonder how well they will be able to do

    Not sure why... but I just do not like the look of that case.

    Clearly you lack taste, after all you do own a HAF :P

    I've said it before and I'll say it again:

    I truly regret getting the HAF X, but it IS the first computer I ever built. You live and learn.

    My tastes have moved in a bed to lie with the SilverStone FT02, and maybe some others, but frankly I've just wanted the FT02 for quite a while now.

    Interesting to know... just think the case could use a bit more vents in my opinion. Computers need to breath...

    I can tell you don't study computer cases or the topic much. Looks can be deceiving.

    Interesting design, odd placement for an optical drive IMO, at the back on top of the GPU? Gonna have some heat issues.

    0/10 would not buy.

    Nice try though, EVGA.

    Stupidest place for an optical drive, the case looks... boring to say the least, not a big fan of grills on a metal chassis. Don't like the pre-installed PSU, although it would probably be easy to take out, but still, extra work that shouldn't have to be done. If the water cooling doesn't perform, well then this will just be a big flop.

    I might be wrong, it might turn out to be a great case, but that's just my first impression of it.

    Do note that it is a mITX case. Might be a fun LAN case, or HTPC case.

    Um guys...

    Check the vr-zone pictures.

    That isn't an optical drive... it's the power supply. >_>

    Is it? Wow looks like an optical drive from the side. Did seem kinda odd to have one at the back lol.
