I`ve been dreaming for egg-like cases or in any way circular shaped for better cooling and this design looks like a step forward. Too bad it`s not sold separately and too bad case manufactures in general are stuck in the 80`s.

Who configures these things? why are you starting so a powerful processor with such an anemic graphics card? especially in a build of that price...

Circular shaped for better cooling?! What does the shape of the case have to do with cooling?

Stuck in the 80's.... WHAT?! Maybe you need to go look up some of the cases available because heck they certainly don't just come in square white boxes anymore. If you want cooing get one of those inwin frames or something.

Or if actually are serious about cooling at a water cooling kit.

I don't see how an egg shaped case can in anyway have better cooling potential then say a HAF. The form factor is exactly that, a from factor, this has to remain that way or the PC industry would be completely inconsistent. Besides, most components in a PC are brick shaped, square, rectangles. Even if the case was an egg on the outside, a square chassis would be required internally, thus being less space efficient.


Come to think of it, it does look very similar to modern PCs


I see so many similarities...
