I quite like it very novel.
Yeah thats definately different
These have been available on ebuyer for a while, about £65-70 as I recall.
Must be great for tweakers/or upgraders etc.
Kind of reminded me of those robots from Dr Who!
I bought one of these and the power supply went during the windows installation. It took me a while to determine it was the PSU and not the MOBO.
I returned it to Microdirect and they said they'd had many people retruning them. I think they've stopped selling them now. nuff said!
Does it take a standard power supply?
The power supply was a bespoke 400w. Because of the way the case is designed the power supply sites in the main body of the case but the power connector is on the back panel which is hinged to allow installation of the components. This was the cause of people getting electrocuted because it was possible to remove the back whilst the power was connected leaving an exposed power cable.
I think this was a brave attempt to get away from the standard ATX design but it was flawed.
Nice idea if it is free standing but in my set up the part where the fans are would be bang up to the computer stand and if I moved it to the other side it would be where the leads come out.
