Summary: I was looking for a case as I was building my own custom pc. I came across this one and liked it immediately. I am very happy I did so. the only two things to take note of are that the product dimensions in the listing are not accurate. the case is smaller than the dimensions specified. The other thin is that the front USB 3.0 port has to be connected to a port on the back panel instead of directly tpo the motherboard.
Pros: This case is great for gaming as a mid case.. It has excellent cooling... The fan on top having to be slim is all about what motherboard you have the the CPU placement.. Also with the Liquid cooling, Top back vent was plenty of room for a "Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan". This does come out little far into the case, so the motherboard with a CPU placement to the front is needed. Which I use "ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AMD 970 Chipset CrossFireX Suppor...
Cons: Only con is that the back panel behind where the mother board is could of been designed better then flat, giving more room to stuff/hide wires.
Summary: I used to think I liked buying off the shelf computers. But a very serious problem with them I find is that if you add a video card and a larger power supply to handle that video card, that they become TOO tightly packed and one worries about air circulation. This case is roomy yet not huge size and has quick entry to get in on the side and also quick grab for some of the modules. Nice! Two 3.0 USB in front due to my mother board also add greatly.
Summary: The case arrived in great condition and ready for install. It is a bit tight in the area of case fan connections for an MSI board. The drive rails fit better than the more expensive TT case. The red HD activity light is not the best choice but certainly visible. Bottom feet could be a bit taller for a bottom mount PSU. Dont want to put directly on carpet. All in all, would buy again.
Summary: Very nice looking case. I wanted something without a door to access usb ports. The 3.0 usb port on the front is not designed well. The cable that hooks to it has to be run through the case, out the back and hooks to the usb port on the outside of the motherboard. Should have just left it a 2.o. Putting a fan on top inside is too close to the memory modules in my computer.If I add or replace memory, the fan has to come out first. It is right against the memory.
Summary: I'm in love with this case. It does have some minor flaws though.Whats the deal with way the USB 3.0 hooks up for the front panel? It's not a problem for me personally. I know some will dislike the way it is setup though. I was able to get all of my fans installed except for one of the top mounted fans. This one installs over my Ram AsRock 970 Extreme 3 board. There isn't enough clearance for the 120 MM fan I have. I don't really care.
Summary: I love this case. The ventilation allows plenty of cooling for my new 6100FX processor. I can get away with the overclocking without having to buy a more efficient heat sink and cooling fan. This has been my first tower with lower level cooling. It is an ingenious idea. The only one of two flaws I have found in this case is that if you are using a micro motherboard, the P4 connection from the supply may not reach the socket on the motherboard.
