Post A face that only a mother can love, but

It is fairly packed for a mini-tower. It looks like it's geared toward the single 2.5" SSD boot drive with one 3.5" storage drive. -most likely a massive storage drive these days.

Some tool-less features for the ODD bays, the HDD bays and the PCI Slots are a nice touch. Then there is the MASSIVE cooling potential. 4 additional 120mm fans in this sized case!?

Then again a Noctura D-14 just won't be an option here. Well, it's 7 3/4" wide so maybe the 'Dragon' can stomach the Noctura D-14 heatsink beast.

That's one of my thoughts as well. The case is a bit "thin", not least if you consider that it's almost an inch thinner than most regular mid-towers, and then might (should) have the side fans eating up another inch of that width.
High profile CPU coolers are out of the question!

As usual I miss any measurement of the ground clearance for the PSU air intake.
Not that it matters much, since mounting the PSU with the fan up will provide sufficient air.

Features that would also be nice on this type of case (at least partially designed for a portable gaming rig) are:
- Carrying handle(s), possibly detachable, to make it more portable.
- Provisions for locking the case. Locking the side plates to prevent theft from the interior, locking peripherals to the case, locking the power button.

Cheers
Olle

Agreed Olle. This case seems to be set up for a small gaming PC most likely used as a LAN rig. It really would be nice if it had a handle and some of the basic security options.
