So far, this case sounds like it’s pretty well-suited for the frequent hardware swapper. Personally, I have to wonder why they chose to go for acrylic on a case that is going to be so frequently manhandled. Dust, fingerprints, possible coolant leaks; these are all enemies of an acrylic case. Still, that’s no more true with this case than it is with any acrylic.

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, let’s take a look at the exterior:

Clearly the delivery guys played a little package football with this one, but that’s why cases come in thick foam padding. While the packaging is certainly stylish, the large photo on front doesn’t give a very clear idea of what the product looks like. The small photo on the side gives us a better clue, as it shows a 3/4 angle shot with an installed system.
