Thermaltake Level 10
 
I am sure many of you will know about this "case" and I am sure many of you will dislike it, but many people love it. Thankfully for them it is no longer a prototype! 6 Months after it was first revealed, the "Extreme Gaming Station" has been confirmed for release in October 2009. For those of you that haven't seen it before, then yes, that is the correct image on the right. Doesn't look very case-like does it?
 
Measuring in at 666mm x 318 x 614, it's not small. Each component has it's own compartment for better cooling and easier installation. It a lso contains a smart-lock system which allows users to secure all of the hardware inside.
 
As you can see on the front panel, 4 USB 2.0 ports, an audio port and an eSATA port. Slightly different from the norm again, with only one audio jack (for headphones, no microphone?) and no firewire.
 
Finally, it features 4 fans, a 140mm at the front, a 120mm at the rear and two 60mm that spin at 2500rpm near the HDDs. Those small fans have the potential to be very noisy, which could stop alot of purchases for quiet environments.
 
It was designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignWorks USA and won the IDEA 2009 Bronze Award. Alot of people don't like it, but there is no denying that it is a very unique and well thought out design. Sadly, this is reflected in the price tag of $690 USD.

Longhorn fillet steaks, preferably from TLC. U have no idea what steak is until u had them.

None of this steak flavored chewy floor-cloth stuff in the UK. Although Welsh black fillet is pretty good.

Texas - Land - & - Cattle.

One time I ordered 10oz and the other person had 8 I *think*. Course she never ate it all, so I ate hers too :p

I swear I had something akin to a beef overdose l8r outside. It felt very much like it.

We're talking about proper steak now mind.

10oz is hardly a meal, its like a light snack.

hehe u mean as opposed to beached-whale-syndrome ?

U can get that anywhere. Typically I get that from chinese or indian.

The object here is the quality of the beef.

18 oz of beef flavored washing-wrag aint exactly the same.

You just need a good local butcher dude.... Supermarket = no no

Hamiltons on the IOW have shops and supply to the trade, once you know where to go and eat its fine.

Steak in the US is superior to ours my quite a margin even if from a quality butcher.

Went to Smith & Wollensky's in Vegas last year and it was amazing steak. Paid for a really nice type of 12oz fillet steak (can't remember what it was called) but it was something else. Think it had cajun spice on it too.

Only time I've had a steak that came close over here was in one of Ramsey's restaurants, Maze Grill. Very nice and not too dear either.

Yeah the butchers over here do have some quality beef-flavored-dish-rag.

But it's still beef-flavored-dish-rag in the majority. Welsh black fillet is about the decentest I've found.

As mentioned above, we're talking about proper steak.

Even the cheapest of mexican establishments do a very good steak. They often put cheese on it.

If u really want beached whale syndrome, order a chicken-fried-steak. Fat content off the scale and the steak is steak-meat.

In the days b4 "Aberdeen Angus" became the real buzz-word in the uk for anything that commercially was meant to be good, maybe 10/15 years ago, Bird's Eye actually made a heart shaped burger-esq pack, containing 2, that came very very close to a quality tasting steak meat. It was withdrawn after a number of months. I honestly think they made it too high in quality to sell at an expected price.

Then again, u can't get half pound burgers over here anymore either. U generally get a 1/4 pound chewed-beef-flavor-rag with onions, trotter, **** and 'some herbs'. I'm not aware of any good burgers being sold in the uk atm.

H8 to say it, but they have very very good lamb too.
