Not bad for a $50ish case but i still think it looks ugly as sin on the outside haha.

Any idea on the cfm of the fan included with the case? Doesnt need to be exact, just a roundabout guess.

For value boxes I've come to a point where I want an idea of what the system might look like with everything installed :\ I recently built a cheap system for a friend and the case he picked out made things look like pure hell inside.

I like the porting for the cables but I noticed some companies do it for novelty and you can't really stealth out a PSU cable in the space provided. It looks decent enough without overflowing with CCFL so I can't knock it, it's hard to get a streamlined case on the cheap these days.

The non-tool-less appeals to me, because tool-less has to be very well made in order to properly work. I find most of them you really need to "press" things in, whereas you'd expect it to just fit perfectly and slide/click in. Like VeGiTAX2, I'd also like to see an interior with actual hardware in it. This case just seems a bit too tiny to neatly tug away the PSU and especially when installing one/two newer and bigger graphics card(s) (Nvidia 2xx series).

heres an idea i just thought of. if more and more cases allow you to have the power cables go behind the mobo to get them out of sight, then why not have the power cables from the psu positioned accordingly. instead of the front of the psu (where the cables currently come out from, why not have cables that are designed at 90 degrees, and come out from the side of the psu facing the motherboard side of the case? you wont ever see most of the cables right?

They would have to change the industry standard for power supplies or create a new class :/ given that it's getting a bunch of grumbling competition under the same roof to agree on something I'd say the chances aren't so hot. Unfortunately while we see things like this relatively cheap, most OEM boxes and generic cases still use traditional form or even cages which would obstruct the cables.

Blargh, its a nice thought, heck even 90 degree connectors right out of the PSU sockets would be nice instead for some cases. (The P193 has the cable routing to the side and directly above the chamber)

why would the standard need to change? most if not all cases have a small gap between the psu and the side of the case, so it would work. right?
