Just like the Cooler Master CSX Medusa, it is nearly impossible to show how detailed the paintwork is on these systems in pictures. In my experience clear acrylic cases show all of your dirty laundry inside the case, but Smooth Creations has come up with a way to clean the look of acrylic. Do you see any cables? Me neither. You have to hand it to Smooth Creations for pulling off a clean clear case.

Here we get the same view, but with the system on and all of the LEDs and cold cathodes lit up. The light from the inside of the case is done tastefully and really helps bring out the artwork.

Smooth Creations gives the case a total 360 degree work over. The cold cathode light has a switch on the back for when you want to dim the lights. The system doesn't use a rear fan, but the open vents are wide enough that the processor cooler is able to aid in passing air through the system.

The other side of the case has the flames going up a little higher than the first and it does a great job of hiding the cables that are at the bottom of the system.

Who would ever think of hiding a beauty like that under a desk? The best thing is that the system is small enough that you don't have to. Notice the SC fan grills that are acrylic, cut into the original piece. It would have been cool to have the ASUS DVD-RW painted to match the case, but this was not a system that I called and had made, so it was not addressed.

Here we see a close up of the fan area and how Smooth Creations managed to score big design points.

Smooth Creations thought of just about everything. Here we see the painted power supply and sheet metal that helps to hide the wires.

I have to say that this is the first time I have ever taken a picture of the bottom of a case. Here we see that Smooth Creations went the extra mile and used tented acrylic for the bottom.
