I'd like to see anand or someone test this shroud design. While in theory it sounds nice, it also basically completely nullifies any airflow inside your case, and airflow is just about the most important cooling aspect.

I'm really curious whether the shroud design actually cools better than a properly airflowed case.

I had the same thought. The only thing I can think of is this: in a current box case, some devices like the graphics card or the CPU cooler might be perpendicular to the airflow, disrupting it. In a shrouded cases like this, they might be able to design the airflow for each section such that the airflow is most efficient. I can't really tell if that's the case from the pictures or not, but maybe that's what they're going for?

Also, I it doesn't look like it comes with dust covers. That's what killed my 8800 GTX. Now I have dust covers on all of my intakes.
