Once upon a time buying a case was easy. The only real choice you needed to make was how large it needed to be to handle your needs and installed hardware. That has been an outdated idea for a number of years now. There are just so many options to consider and it can almost seem overwhelming to a novice. But then, they do call them PERSONAL computers, now, don't they?
Water cooling is also something else that is gaining a huge amount of momentum in modern computing. It used to be something that only an avid enthusiast would consider, but today it is becoming more common for those who are just tired of the high noise output of a decent air cooling solution.
So now we have an enclosure that not only looks good, but also has a great deal of functionality. Add to this the design that makes it water friendly and we begin to see a very nice package indeed. It also has a large feature list that reads straight from the elite range of case designs, so all in all we have a very sweet enclosure on our hands.
Everything isn't roses with the SHARK, though, as my earlier rant regarding an unfiltered side panel will attest to, but the things done right far outweigh the things done wrong and I have no qualms about recommending this case to anyone who is looking for something a bit out of the ordinary. Even if you have no desire to get into water, the 120mm fans are whisper quiet and still maintain an above average airflow throughout the case. The hard drive trays are great and the included grommets show a dedication to the enthusiast when it comes right down to how things should be done.
Bottom line... If you've been in the market for an aluminum enclosure and have also been thinking (or are already using) a water cooling setup, then this is definitely a case you should consider. With a huge feature list, aluminum construction and a 120mm fan system already in place, it just doesn't get much better than this.
