Sporting a very bright red finish and a sound effect when you first start the machine up will get racing fans eyebrows up. Add to the creative exterior a very roomy interior with removable hard drives and 120mm fan cooling and this is more than just a gimmick case. No word on how temperamental it makes your PC.
'When I hear F430 I instantly think of one of my favorite exotic cars, the Ferrari F430.
