is this case hot?

It would be a hot case if it was made out of aluminium.

Plastic stylised cases = tackorama

I was sooo dissapointed when I saw that case in the flesh - the front "door" is mounted on crappy plastic hinges. The entire case is crappy plastic.

It needs to be metal, with auto paint, and it needs to have hydraulic shit to open that front door. With the little "pssshhhhh" of moving air.

And a price tag of $2000 8^P

if i bought one and showed it to my friends they would think i am super cool, my e-peen factor would be through the roof!

Personally i think it looks like too bulky, i like the smooth elegance look(Lian Li anyone?) rather than spaceship.

Potential as hotbox? +10 to that, i can already see the variations in it.

Is it hot though?
To me, it has a hot colour, but no, its not hot IMO.


EDIT: i forgot to say, i saw this case in a crappy computer shop for $59, it had Asus all over it so i dont think it was a generic ripoff!

It was this computer shop that i saw in the mountains, it was only in this lttle shopping strip so there wouldnt be any website i dont think. The name of the shop is Dave's Computers

Love the colour, hate the case. As others have mentioned it has that plastic tackorama(not to be confused with Takoma rama :P) look about it.

shininess makes it look too plastic...I guess it is but prolly better to try and hide that fact. However, I like it...kinda like a spaceship/exotic sports car look.

Well, looks okay, though you wouldn't turn up at a LAN party with it, imagine lugging it around.

That case has so much potential guys, I would pull it apart, sand it back and paint it harlequin green, get the guts of it chromed and add a side window, not so hard to mold perspex in the oven.
