    I think he’s right and it’s the lighting. I’ve seen other pics of the case and it’s a glossy hospital white. Would look amazing with an NZXT fan controller and etched side window. Already imaging the case mods…

  16. CoolJon says:

    Thanks for the review JJ! That does look like an awesome case. I sure wouldn’t mind winning one. Btw, the one picture of the top fan from the inside made me do a double take because a painting on your wall was framed perfectly in the mobo cutout. I thought for a second that there was a painting on the back wall of the case.
