BMW / Thermaltake level 10 computer case

BMW Group Designworks USA and Thermaltake have collaborated to produce this amazing industrial design style computer case. It's pricey (newegg sells it for $850) but mannn this matte black case is so awesome

Thermaltake Level 10 Super-Gaming Modular Tower Chassis is the culmination of performance, design and innovation in computer chassis.

The "Level 10" concept allows gamers to experience the power of their high-end computers through the design itself. In order to achieve this, iconic design is combined with optimum functionality and innovative details. By rendering the inside components visible, the design concept focuses on the architectural aesthetics which are inherent in the computers and result from each individually configurable components. The inspiration for this approach which designers took right from the most basic form of computer itself - expressiveness, virtual townscapes and futuristic game components served as orientation for the arrangement and the look of individual components.

For maximum thermal performance, the Level 10 adopted the similar aerodynamic criteria that can be rivaled by Formula 1 race cars. The exposed vertical heatsink with multiple layers symbolizes both the inherent power and excellent cooling qualities. Targeted ventilation is reached by an advanced airflow system with two separate thermal zones and individual fans preventing overheating and increases airflow to specific components as needed. The result is a highly efficient configuration that channels airflow to the maximum. All these appear within the overall design in the form of an open modular structure that is visually appealing to users, but offers them additional functional benefits at the same time.

Had thermaltake cases in the past. I LOVE this case, but seriously I'd need to be making 6 figures to have the expendable money to blow 850$ on a case alone. This coming from the guy who has a 2k computer.

The components in my PC equal to around $7000, and I wouldn't buy that case.

Looks cool, but I've only read bad things about this case function-wise.

too much for a case. I get upset everytime I buy a Lian Li. Though they are quite the shit. Anyway here is my setup

Lian Li full tower case
MSI Mo-Bo
i7 920
OCZ Vertex SSD 128gb
2tb Western Digital drives
1000watt PSU
12 gigs DDR3
nVidia GTX 285

I used to play pc games but these days most of my computer power is testing software on virtual machines and a little bit of mysql work. I used to want to have the best components and the most bad ass video card but these days I just do not need it. Though as you can see from my current build that I still have a soft spot for good hardware.

they better stick with car design, this is awful. No PC manufacturer in their right mind would get this. Its a dust collector and complicated for an average IT guy to figure out where everything is.

A BIG FAIL!
