Summary: Bought for my HTC upgrade, plenty of space for all your components and importantly for me a full size GPU. Excellent cooling as well, teamed up with some Akasa Vipers and a fan controller its silent and has temps that i'm happy with (my old case got a bit too warm at points for my liking). The only complaint I had was that the provided fans were useless, barely moved any air at all.
Summary: Built my Media PC in this case and it sits under the telly next to the sky box, ps3 etc. Have had it for coming on to 2 years now and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it. Not changed any of the cooling from stock and if you pair it with a quiet PSU then its very, very quiet. My PSU is a little noisy but doesnt infringe on any movies, music etc so its not a problem. I have a Z77 gigabyte Mobo in it and also an asus 550ti. The GPU just about fits.

Summary: Bought this with a few other components for an HTPC build, along with; *Nexus Value-430 430W True Power Compact PSU *Gigabyte A75n-usb3 Motherboard Amd A Series *Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 *AMD A-Series A8 3870K Black Edition Quad-Core Processor *SanDisk SDSSDX-120G-G25 120GB with an existing Blu Ray Drive Putting it together wasnt easy, can be a bit fiddly in places. Glad I got the mini-itx board.
Summary: This is a very nice and high quality casing I owned. Stock fans are sufficient and quite. This is very suitable for a person who have kid/s who loves to touch things especially the HTPC because it has a lock with keys which you can hide the drive bays but not the power button..
Summary: This box was a challenge. It is definitely not the easiest system I built. However, the final product is what ultimately counts and it looks great and that is why I gave it 5 stars. My setup: Asus Gryphon Z87 MB Intel i7 LGA1150 G.Skill DD3 1866 8mb x 2 Zalman cnps8900 low profile CPU cooler BluRay Drive Corsair HX620W Modular PS Silverstone 3 dial FP33 rear fan controller SSD drive Tips: 1. Keep track of all the screws and where they go.
Summary: I wanted a case that would fit into my home entertainment cabinet. The issue was case depth and this is one of the very few units that fit the bill. I also wanted at least 1 external 3.5" disk bay as I like to do my backups this way. A second one was a nice bonus - I can keep my movie library in one of these and remove it for safe keeping when on vacation or to take it with me to friends.
Summary: I wanted to build a gaming machine that can serve as a multimedia player as well. I bought this case because I wanted to install a lot of HDDs and a decent GPU. I placed it in my home theater table (a small cheap besta from ikea). hooked through onkyo receiver to my HDTV. can't be happier with such a powerfull steambox that fits in such place. I hardly need anything else around the TV now other than my new toy. pros: + saved space. + looks nice.
Great case! tight fit for various components but if careful, you should be good to go

Summary: Nice fit for everything I needed to plugin to this case. The only minor complaints (holding me back from 5 stars) I have are: 1. the top support braket is hard to work with when doing general maintenance (e.g. doing cleaning or replacing things once you initially have things connected). I also wish there were screwdriver-less screws for at least the top part of the case.
Summary: Pros: 1) Stylish; Able to hide front ports which tend to be dust collector points. 2) Barely audible fans. 3) 2 Hot swappable drives. Easily removed. 4) Has adequate ventilation routes. 5) Fits nicely with other HT equipment, essentially same width and depth as other common devices. 6) Can use Corsair CX series power supplies, although it is a fairly close fit.
