My only question is: Why are you so interested in this case now? It's based on one of the most widely rebranded cases in PC case history, and it's been around for a while.

I think others can tell you that while the chassis is well-built and sturdy with good airflow, too much noise escapes from the directly vented front bezel. There are better options for silent computing now, IMO.

It's because of the final look i would make from him and i cann have him for a very low price.Is the front bezel the only problem?
