Sun Ultra workstation case = beautiful

Post by swivelguy2 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:47 am

I passed by a computer lab filled with these, and I have to say that the case looks like it has amazing potential.

The giant open front intake looks perfect for a pair of low-speed 120mm fans, the front panel connections are excellently placed, and it has no side or top openings, which I despise. It's simple yet stylish, with an attractive finish. If only it had the PSU at the bottom, it would be literally perfect.

Does anyone know if it might be possible to get just the case from this thing?

There's also a full ATX case with a similiar look:
Lian Li- PC-9F
I haven't seen the silver version on sale yet.
Or if you need a little more room and don't mid rounded edges:
Lian Li PC-V1020
Both of these cases are expensive, the PC-9F is 150$ the PC-V1020 is 250$.
