Gorgeous design and thoughtful layout, but you'll be hard pressed to find a full-size GPU that cools effectively in this case. Only room for small liquid cooling solutions and it can be finicky to work inside the case.
A couple extra mm on the backside for cable management would have made a big difference, and it's very difficult to get at your motherboard ports once this is assembled (requires removing your watercooler and back panel with four thumbscrews). Once it's all put together though, it's very compact and a gorgeous design.
Well I went around in circles choosing a case. Until I saw this. Stunning. Its got the quality and looks that demand a clean build as both sides are entirely glass. Nowhere to hide. Finger-print magnets too - I used rubber gloves when finally placing the sides on. This is the first time I've successfully build a PC, let alone in the mini-ITX form factor. Even so I was prepared to take on the extra (anticipated) headaches as I wanted the elegant minimalism and clean looks over ease of build of a conventional ATX. Mine arrived without a full complement of screws and accessories which I'm still chasing. That was a pain but not a show stopper. Everything goes in fairly easily. I did an external POST test with PSU, CPU, mobo, GPU and then planned what cables I needed and where to route them. The back was a mess until the final stages when I tidied things up and re-routed some cables. Still not great as the back just goes on and presses hard against the centre where cables cross. There could be a just a few more mm between the back of the case frame and the back panel. Maybe my bad cable management. Air flow seems ok. I would be slightly uncomfortable placing a powerful gaming build in this case. For my purposes however, its near perfect.
