Why is this case $600?

Hexxagone

If half of what in the Listing stands is true then part of it is justified because its aluminium and not steel and three letters make it extra saucy: CNC.

I would not go with aluminium. it is lighter but softer as well. if you build in it a lot, the things like threads and often removed panels might wear out.

Man that sure is a very expensive case. I know visuals are subjective, but it's objectively bad case design being all closed off. There is no reason anyone should even consider this.

apart from the price i slightly disagree. I have a fairly closed case as well while using an external rad. this way i do not hear the coil-whine 🙂

There are ways to make closed cases work, but generally coil whine is reduced enough by just having closed side panels, which 99% of cases have. And having an open or mesh front makes it so you can run your fans slower and still have better temps, resulting in better noise AND thermals most of the time. So even if noise is the main concern, airflow cases are the best pick. This is also the conclusion of Gamers Nexus who tested hundreds of cases over the lase few years.

you are right. i would not reccomend closed cases in most.. cases. not to mention this one witch does not offer you anything a case made of steel could not do at a much lower  price.
