Question What do you guys think of this ??

Although I have no love for anything MAC based GOD how I love the look of the new G5 case.

Be that as it may, I fell in love with this case and was just curious what you guys thought of it. My only concern would be heat. I will be running a 3500+ winnie OC'd, 2 74 gig Raptors and 2 6800Ultras in SLI with a 480-520 watt PSU.

My choice would be Black for either one.

Stealth mod to the burner. Still working on other ideas.

My second pick is the Lian Li PC73-SL. This is the same case I used for my EXOS project some of you may remember

Let me know what you guys think.

It does appear that way doesn't it.

ANSWER....NOPE This is an ATX case, purely PC that just happens to look almost exactly like the new G5 case. In this way I get the best of both worlds. The look of the MAC and the performance of a PC based machine.

Here's a link to the case:

Pretty sweet if you ask me.

Not bad, but a couple of things bother me with it. First and foremost is concern over PSU size and it only possibly fitting smaller PSU's. support for only 1 120mm fan and that's with modifications. No window or provision for one. Smaller gauge look to the metal just appears a little cheaper to me JMO.

I do like the 2 drive bay doors.

Not a bad case for the money but nowhere near the same league as the Chenbro or Lian Li.

Thanks for the heads up though

I like the idea of having the power switch at the top - less bending over if the case is on the floor.
