I need your thoughts about what you think

The size suits me fine, i'm ok with that. The weight though is one thing I could not find on this sucker. I don't know how heavy it is.

I currently have a Lian Li PC-31 which weighs in at a lovely 10lbs without psu. That is real nice, and has been my lanning machine for a while. But I don't have the time to do any mods on it before quakecon this year so I'm thinking of a pre-modded case.

I have found this one:

http://www.directron.com/201tblk.html

Directron is selling it for $178 which is $2 cheaper then Newegg, plus Newegg is outta stock on it, heh.

This is teh company that makes it and their page on it:

It has two side windows, a top window and is ALL BLACK on teh INSIDE AND OUTSIDE. It is made of Aluminum.

I will be adding some Red cold cathodes for the inside if I get it.

it looks nice brent, but personally I wouldn't spend more money on a case like that on if you already have such a nice Lian-Li case, just trying to save you a bit of money. But if you don't mind spending the cash, it is a nice case and seems the air flow seems to be good!

Man! It's just like the Lian-Li but with dual 80mm fans in the back and a full front port cluster. Dammit, I'm buying one...now I just have to sell this PC-12!

I just noticed that cursive "handwriting" on the front of the case in that first pic...I'm wondering if that's just in that one pic for some reason, or does if it comes etched on the case...
