Exclamation Thermaltake Mozart TX

Want a big case to fit all your toys in with no space problems? Bigger even than what you saw until now? I think I have just found the beast ! Tell us what you think about Mozart !

PS The 7" optional monitor is a killer

What, it needs four 120mm fans at the top to cool those toasty optical drives and the one HDD they have installed?

Not thanks

If they're really quiet 120mm fans then i wouldn't mind it at all but i would have to see it in action first

I saw this thing in my latest PC rag. It is great. They were displaying it as a HTPC case...

I like it....

Too bad it costs $290 but i do want one because of the huge modding potential and ofcourse tonnes of space. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/T...ake/MozartTX/1

Most of the better cube cases were or are about 300.00. This is even bigger...

I saw this case in my CPC mag a few days ago.

Needless to say, it's freakin' sexy. Too bad I just bought my P180 case.

Actually..

P180, anybody?

It's all well and good that it mounts 4 120mm exhaust fans, but does it have commensurate intake fannage? It's different and neato, but the price tag makes you want to have your own IT department to pay for it out of their pockets.

Should hit widespread retail by the end of september, so if you have you mind set on this case, as do I, you'll most likely have to wait until then. However, if you find one sooner, let me know!

And yes, cloasters, there are just as many fans up front as there are in back, from what i saw. Add in the 3.5" drive cages into the 5.25" bays, and you are all set.
