BMW Presents Thermaltake PC Case for Gamers

They have designed yachts, trains, coffee makers, speakers even airplanes and now, BMW DesignworksUSA, an independently operated studio owned by the BMW Group, has joined forces with Thermaltake, a company known for its flashy eye-catching products to create a futuristic-looking PC case. Previewed in prototype form at the CEBIT in Hanover (March 3-8, 2009), the BMW-designed PC case is called "Level 10".

Aimed at gamers, the Level 10 actually looks more like a chassis than a traditional case as the computer's individual components are mounted in separate compartments that are attached onto a central base.

Looks cool at first glance, but cooling will be a nightmare.

I bet that thing has horrible air flow, too many enclosed compartments.

I was thinking the same thing at first glance - hopefully they took that into consideration. Having said that - I want one! Wonder what the first mod would be....

but watch out for limp mode...i.e. long boot-up (instead of long crank? )

I would think Thermaltake has taken that into considerations.

They make good products. I have one of their modular power supplies.
