Looks like a nice case!

Ruggedized features combined with elegant styling, Survivor Core is a new paradigm in chassis design. Engineered for the mobile digital warrior, Survivor Core comes fully equipped with an innovative carrying handle that hides away when not in use, and full compatibility with extra-long graphics cards. BitFenix's SofTouch™ coating helps the system resist a few bumps on the way to the LAN party, and balanced airflow means Survivor Core remains cool and stable in the heat of battle. All of this is geared to help you dominate at your next LAN event, rather than worrying about if your hardware will survive the day.

Features
Built Tough
The unique curved design of Survivor Core isn't just for looks. The frame actually extends past the mesh side panels to help protect the chassis during transport. The top and sides of the chassis are coated with proprietary BitFenix SofTouch™ coating for easy clean up and scratch resistance. If you are going to crush your opponents, why not look good doing it?

Get a Grip
Equipped with a convenient carry handle, Survivor Core makes transport a breeze. And when it's not in use, simply snap the handle back in place and retain Survivors clean modern design. A simple and useful idea, elegantly executed on Survivor.

Keep Cool Under Fire
Hot system components could spell trouble when the competition is hunting you down. Survivor Core is built to stay cool under extreme conditions, and can be outfitted with up to two 200mm fans or three 120mm fans, delivering superb airflow to all your hardware, and keeping your system chilled and battle-ready.

Lights Out
When shock and awe won't get the job done, maybe stealth is the answer. Survivor Core comes equipped with a convenient light control, which enables you to turn the lights on when you need then and off when you don't. If you've equipped Survivor Core with BitFenix Spectre™ LED fans, you can turn them off as well. After all, even warriors need to sleep eventually.

Enhanced Hardware Compatibility
In competition, you need every advantage you can get. That's why Survivor Core comes with a modular hard drive cage that can be easily removed to accommodate even the longest graphic cards - all of this while maintaining Survivor's compact dimensions. With Survivor, your rivals won't even know what hit them.

Friendly Installation
When the battle looms on the horizon, you want to spend as little time as possible getting your hardware up running. Featuring a motherboard CPU cooler cutout on the motherboard tray, specially-designed motherboard standoffs, intelligent internal cable management, and an almost completely tool-free design, Survivor Core means less time tinkering and more time fragging.

Nice case, I've been keeping an eye on this on the Today Only deals. Shame I'm not building for another couple of months. Hot nontheless

Careful though, i think the pic and the vid you posted are for the Survivor full fat, not the "Survivor Core". Doesnt have the Esata or USB3 support on the 'Core like it does on the former...

cool case. just got one the other week (and paid full 4 quid more ! grrrr.

You're right, the video is for the Survivor, and not the Survivor CORE. Although the pics appear to be correct, both boxes are almost identical. Looking at the specs, the Survivor CORE does have eSATA, but no USB3.0.

I'd never heard of these cases before now, but they look so nice! I'll definately be keeping these in mind for my upcoming build.

How does this Case do with regards to ventilation.....?

I seem to remember seeing a review video where they said that if you wish to remove the side-panel, then you have to first remove the back-top and back-bottom plastic "curves" (shown)...

...if that's the case (no-pun-intended) then it's a pretty big flaw IMHO.
(although I suppose once you done all you mucking about inside, and have it set how to want it, then there's no real need to open the side-panel until a fault occurs or it's time to upgrade something)...but still...

What's the bit sticking out the top on the first post?

Makes it look like a suitcase!

You're right, you do have to remove the two back curves using a screwdriver in order to remove the side panel and gain access to the inside of the chassis.

I don't see that as a flaw myself, infact I quite like it. Considering the case is designed for added protection to the chassis when lugging it around to and from friends houses/LAN parties etc, I think the fact they're screwed down makes the case more robust than if they were slotted in. Plus I love the way it holds the side panel in adding more protection, as you wouldn't want the side panel coming off during transport opening up all your components to potential damage.

And it's only 4 little screws.

It's a handle by which to carry the case.

Dont buy this if youre after a performance case. Its cooling is so very bad

In Custom PC magazine a couple of months ago they reviewed this, 60% rating overall and it gets even less than that on the cooling front. It does look awesome, but if youre going to build a decent gaming PC with it Id look elsewhere. I just went for my lovely Coolermaster case instead.

It does look pimp though and its a good price for it if you really do want this case.

Heres the review for any doubters

Surely you could solve the colling by adequate cooling if you really want to use this, bang in a decent cpu cooler and good fans.

They tested it with 2x 200mm fans though. Which I think is the most you can get into it.

Can also be used as a powerful contraceptive device. Hot.
