PC Design Lab - new case

I just got an email update from PC Design Lab regarding their new case. Those of you who follow the blog will know my ComputeCube machine is built into their QMicro2 case, which has been really good with only one or two tiny niggles. Although in fairness they are caused by the the amount of power cables and the heat emitted by the Asus rampage 2 gene northbridge arrangement and the Tesla C1060.

The new case looks good and their have adopted the suggestions from their clients. You may have a look at the new pre-order case here.  Even though they have raised the cage I would have liked it to be slightly taller to help with airflow over the GPU's and power cable routing.  Strangely they mention it can now support 750w power supplies, but I have been running a 1250w one in the older case for a while now with no problems.

The radiator bracket is a really good idea and would have helped sort out the Rampage 2 Genes overheating northbridge rather nicely.

If you are looking for a SFF case in my opinion there is nothing better out there and this new model raises the bar even further.  Now if I could only get my hands on the new one and a watercooling kit :)
