I dunno, there is something not so cool about reflecting your messy room or looking at your goofy face when you try and open it up. Rice is not always practical imo. Sure it looks nice, but I'd rather my black P180.

Would look good in a modern house where a Shuttle is not big enough and you are after looks.

I also had a good look at one at Fluidtek.

Amazing looking, until you get close and notice the small inperfections in the side panels which are fully hidden by a brushed finish, but stand out clearly by a mirror finish.

I have to agree about the cleaning, the case had a "Please do not touch" sticker on it, and there were already about 5 fingerprints from people who can't read.

But a damn fine looking computer case.

I'm waiting to see how the larger version of the P180 looks, since I have found that my current P180 is a bit cramped.

It looks alright, but there is no way I would pay the $300 price tag it has.... its gotten into that market where there are so many better alternatives (Hello CM Stackers, lian lis, silverstones etc etc)...

The original cm stacker was great. The new one (83*) sucks balls
