    Evolv, you brought me into the world of watercooling. I did my first real case mod on you. I took you apart and put you together so many times; sorry for the stripped screw holes and paint scratches. I was so annoyed about your claim of 140mm rad compatibility in the rear spot. I'm not sure where you'll go next, but I don't feel right selling you. Two or three computer's worth of hardware moved through you.

    Thermaltake Core P5 was just too appealing.

    Nawp.

    If the TG edition just had a tempered glass panel instead of an acrylic one, and cost maybe $20 more instead of $100 more, and didn't completely enclose the top and front of the case, I might have considered it.

    Oh shit dude! That looks amazing!! I'm sure the Evolv isn't jealous. ;) I don't know if I can part ways with my Primo, tho I've seen a case that has me having wet dreams over it, lol.

    Yeah, might as well buy your own tempered glass panel and save $20-50.

    I've been considering it. A mild tint would be very nice. I'll have to see how this acrylic panel holds up; if it scratches or series too easily then I'll find a glass shop to make me a replacement. It'll be a pretty easy piece to cut; I can even give them the acrylic sheet as a template. =)

    Had the Evolv case too, case sucked. Too heavy, airflow sucked & I sliced my finger open on the bottom due to the razor sharp edges.

    I agree, it was good looking, but form never outweighs functionality.
