New Mid Tower Case NZXT H230

This case looks really interesting. I'm going to be curious how it comes with the Fractal R4 and similar mid tower cases - The price seems right too since it retails for $69 and I bet there will be deals for $60 and less. Also it seems like it will have better airflow than the H2 considering the airflow holes on the left side.
