i’m with them on the marketing; if they’d jsut offer an alternative with jsut a mesh front i’d be all over it. the way i’d have it the front will be facing a wall or the side of the bookcase, so front glass isn’t a big deal.
the PC-011 will be a pain to fit my stuff in; it should all fit, but between hoses and radiator/motherboard clearance it’ll be tight and a pain to work with. i could switch to a pair of 360 radiators, but then the cost goes up enough that i may as well get something like a 1000d where fitting the radiators isn’t ever going to be an issue.
they’re all just fucking boxes anyway; someone should have a decent modular-internals offering by now, where i can say number of drives, radiators, psus, mb size etc, and have the required brackets and fittings added to whatever size metal box is required to hold them.
