I know the case itself is not new. But this is a pretty sweet kit for lazy people like me.

IMO, these emphasize looks over function.

Only supports vertical mount for the GPU. Which means, you must always use a riser card. And the included riser card, as with soooo maaaaany cases, is only PCI-E 3.0 certified.

I hope they improved the QC on these, as well. I had a white NR200p for a bit. the holes for the power supply cage didn't' line up well. And neither did the rear PCI slots.

I'm a NR200 owner and haven't ran into the same issues. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this new case to someone except it's $350. The N200 is on Amazon right now for $80, N200P at $113. So $230 for the PSU, CPU water cooler, and riser cable.
According to the reviewer the PCI-E riser cable is gen4

ah, inded the specs page list PCI-E 4.0. A video I watched about it mis-quoted 3.0.

for $350, you get a PSU, an AIO, and a gen 4 riser. That's not too bad. If the quality is better, then I would say the only issue remains that these are pretty big for ITX. Slight tweaking and they could offer MATX compatiblity.

I don't like the $350 up front cost either. But for what you get it seems like a decent price.

I saw a 9/16 release date for this but I can't find it in stock anywhere? Did I miss something?

I think its a great deal if you don't already have all those parts. No brainer and every review shows how easy it is to build it.

If I didn't already have a case, PSU and AIO I was happy with, i'd pick this up in a heartbeat.
