I hanker after one of these cases and have ever since I saw the first review of it. That they've added USB3 and better fans makes it worse. I want one, I really want one...
But £168 at scan.co.uk, which for a premium case with superb cooling and acoustics is pretty reasonable; the Cosmos II Ultra is >£300 and my current case actually works pretty well considering and it's kind of similar high quality, understated silver aluminium.
And heavily personalised / modified to make it breath in a way it originally could only dream of, but it's still limited to CPU coolers<140mm tall and I can't overcome that.except with a FT02!
If someone gave me a FT02 (preferable on silver w/out window, but I'm not fussy!) I'd be extatic, until then I'll make do!
For the air flow the bottom to top that "works with convection" is negligible, convection has no practical effect once you have forced air cooling, even if you put it upside-down for top to bottom I doubt it would make any measurable differance.
have an effect is heat-pipe orientation, especially in video cards. Yes good heat-pipes have wicks in them but they are affected if in completely adverse orientation. Coolers where the pipes run straight the length of the card can be significantly affected by being vertical not horizontal. Examples include Arctic cooling Accelero Xtreme and Thermalright T-Rad, I believe where the heatpipe is in a U with the bottom of the U along the length of the card, like my Twin Turbo II and many stock coolers are not so badly affected. I did one time find an article where some one had tested the orientation on video cards and in some cases the difference was small and in others, possible the Accelero Xtreme it was large, like °20C large!
EDIT: Not brilliant review and maybe take results with pinch salt...
