Doesn't look too bad, although I would never buy it because I HATE cases with doors.

But I like the big window. :-)

I've got the Aluminus and love it, except for the door! I read a review that expressed the same concern, but the reviewer said that it actually proved to be quite strudy in use.

My concern is not with the door's sturdiness, but with the way it hits the open/close button of my DVD drive every time I close it. On the Ultra users forum it's suggested that one grind away part if the offending fin to solve the problem, but I can't bring myself to put a Dremmel to my case!

What color did you get? I've got the silver one and put in titanium finish fans and power supply - looks sharp.

Yeah, because if you mess up, it looks nasty. Even properly done, it looks a little funny when you see uniform silver plastic and then a dulled and rough bit on the inside of the door every time you open it.

I also have a green LED 92mm fan coming, for my XP-90C ... it's taking forever for it to get here. :(

doesnt look too bad, kinda like the Tt case. personally I love the door. I have a door on mine and it just gives it a smooth streamlined look... no faceplates to look at, and it actually is quieter when the door is closed. my door has a little rubber stopper (which you cannot see) so when I close it, its not aluminum on aluminum and doesnt get scratched and dinged up. Not a big fan of premods, so the window is meh, if you had cut the window then it would be cooler :P

I didnt get your meaning about the window.You mean i should or shouldnt have gotten a window?Personally i like the window.As long as the inside of the case is kept clean of wire's and stuff which it will be for the most part.

its ok, i'm not a big fan of premodded stuff (ie - windows that are already there out of the box). If you had cut it it would be a different story, thats all... if you like it thats all that matters :)

They dont come without the window.But i do have a plan for the window,At work i can get all kinds of stuff like steel mesh and colored and clear acrylic's so that window wont be plain for long

I think its decent.

Don't let others affect your satisfaction. In the end, its not what others think of your case but rather what you think of it.

It's a nice case....But I'd prefer the Nvidia Stacker 830, your e-penis is only as big as your case. :D

Its quite nice and stylish, I have seen far worse. IMO the door lets the case down and does look cheap. But it seems to be really geared up for good cooling so thats a plus mate. And the price is the cherry on TOP!
