It is impossible to be indifferent to Skeleton. It uses a complete different design, being completely opened for a better airflow. Our news editor, Cássio Lima, thinks it looks like a portable stove. We think it looks like a spider. This is one of the unusual products that you will either love it or hate it. Unfortunately we are in the second group. Find out why.

First, let’s take an overall look at Skeleton.  As you can see from the several pictures below, this is definitely a case that is hard to describe. While being opened definitely solves overheating problems, it also brings the biggest disadvantages of all: lack of physical protection. Anything can fall inside your PC, including metallic parts and liquids, and you can easily break an expensive hardware part while moving your chair. In our opinion it doesn’t seem a smart idea to have one or more very expensive video cards vulnerable like this. Not to mention the problem you will have with dust.
