how tall is the case?

great review, those case master's seem to be very nice but they have to learn from their mistakes. too bad there's no removable mobo tray and components like the extra side panel and sliding rails aren't so good.

it's a great case, if I want to put my PC in a case again (some day) I'll consider this case. another thing: is it possible to watercool it? the pump can be placed above the floppy disks, but I don't really see a place where I can place a 2*120mm radiator

another thing: there's some space between the top of the motherboard and the PSU

definately easier then a chieftec because there's no room between the mobo and the metal above. that makes the installation of coolers (with a clip) much easier. I've installed a Zalman flower heatsink in a friend's maxi case and the fins touched the metal above the mainboard

I'll keep an eye on their series of cases :)

"and components like the extra side panel and sliding rails aren't so good."

are you kidding me? those are great features, installation of hard drives and cdroms was never so easy.

"how tall is the case?"

I'll measure it when I'm back @ home :)

"is it possible to watercool it?"

if you sacrifice one CDROM spot for placement of your 1x120mm rad. or you can mod the front and place it there.
