    This case looks neat IMO. Any thoughts?

    Man...is that sweet. Just when I thought I couldn't get better than my P160...

    My buddy is asking me to build him a super rig for video editng, 64 style.

    Maybe I'll give him a good break on mine to pick this bad boy up...

    I only wonder how the thermals will be with the PSU on the bottom, as heat rises.

    Nice one...MJC.

    It's in a seperate compartment. The PSU is just used to pull air out the bottom chamber which is just for HDDs. You can use a 120mm fan as well (mounted in the middle of the chassis) to accelerate that a bit more, but I wouldn't think it is necessary unless your cramming some 10k or 15k drives in there.

    Everything about this case seems top-of-the-line. From the seperate PSU compartment, to the rubber gromets on the Hard Drive mounts to absorb vibrations.

    I like it... My next build may have to go in there unless something better comes along.

    Yeah, pair of 10K Rappies....



    If I build this later...it'll be my 3rd antec case. They truly are works of art and well contructed.
