Ok first off, the handles are metal and very strong, If they are anything like the old Cosmos cases (I have a Cosmos S myself) those handles are stronger than any other lifting system any other case can offer and gives the case a lift off the ground so the vents at the bottom have plenty of room to breath.Guest said:
I'm not sold on the top handles. I'm not picking up my 50 lb computer with a couple grand of innards with any plastic handle!
If this case in on your list, you really should get ion front of it if you can and you will 'get it' other than size and accommodations. it is built like an expensive auto. including the doors,(actual six sided 1" thick hinged doors with sound deadening foam in the middle) which are very much like car doors. The feel, fit and finish are impeccable. Every single opening is filtered with effective ,removable, and high quality filters, I am in the middle of lining up Water-cooling for this thing, but have been living with it for a few weeks now with 4 x 6970's under the hood (not known for quietness at full tilt) and it just emits a low hum while gaming. There is also a great deal of 'ergonomics' to this case (the sliding panels, doors, etc) as well and as I wrote in my review, it feels professional. Leaving all objectivity at the door...it is drop dead gorgeous!I am confused to why you would buy this for $350 when you can buy a Silverstone FT02 for $250 and not have to worry about having a ~610mm high case? The only thing that this case looks like it has going for it is the awesome front panel but that is hardly worth an extra $100, especially since it does not have three 180mm fans pumping air straight at all of your components.
