3 out of 5 eggsGood case with only one solid complaint

Pros: great cooling, good size, and a awesome design

Cons: one of the four pegs between the ground and the bottom of the case is slightly shorter than the other three, causing the case to wobble if touched, not really a big deal but bugs the heck out of me,

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Very Sturdy - STEEL

Rubber tips bottom

Comes with a few motherboard pegs

6 Fans are built into the tower standard with 9 being the maximum allowed in the tower.

Dial controls on the front 3 fans for speed settings and control

Cons: Heavy - as expected with a steel case full tower. I think i remember the shipping weight was 22 pounds.

Front 3 fans have a mesh net in front of them which holds dust really well. In my one month of having it my case has a white circle covering the fan that I've cleaned but attracts so much and since my rag is not damp, stays pretty well. Let me be clear, it does come off but fragments stay on it making the white color of dust stay. and it attracts it. Also to get to it you have to take out the hard drive slot it's attached to so just a heads up.

Other Thoughts: Over all awesome setup i built and I am happy with the case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pretty spacious, lots of room to work with.
The fans are nice stock fans if you like the blue look.
Come with USB 3.0 in the top front.
Lots of drive bay space.

Cons: The cable management isn't as good as, let's say, a corsair case.
If you are looking for optimal cooling, get some better fans.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years goin strong!

Pros: I've had this case for 5 years now, and I've yet to replace anything on it. It's been through 3 cross country moves, smacked, dropped, tipped over, scuffed, scratched, kicked, you name it. This case is a BEAST. It's got plenty of room for anything, I've got so much unused space in it it's unreal.

Cons: One minor con: Cable management space can be somewhat limited, but you just need to be creative and be liberal with zip ties!

Only other con I can think of is you have to take off both side panels to access the mounting screws that hold the fan/hard drive bays, in order to slide them out far enough to clean the filters for the fans themselves. Time consuming is all.

Other Thoughts: Seriously going to keep this case forever. I'm rebuilding my entire computer next year and will be sticking with this case :p

5 out of 5 eggsVery good case

Pros: Have had this case for more than 4 years now. Very easy to clean and reassemble. Would have preferred a little more space on the back to allow easier cable management - but it's not very thin to complain as well. Had to replace the top 200 mm fan once - but that's all so far. Love the ability to convert one drive cage into a tunnel to get through more air to a Antec-920 cooler.
Loved this purchase!

Cons: Case fan holder on the side plastic pane could get in the way depending on your configuration.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Full Tower

Pros: This case is an amazing full tower, lots of airflow and plenty of room.

-One of the biggest pro's for me is the convenient amount of space for cable management behind the mobo, I have had some cases that are just too much and some that are too little.

-Adjustable fan speed comes build in and works like a champ. I like to have all my fans hooked up to a power supply and not control them from the motherboard so this is amazing.

-Very sturdy case: I love the fact this case does not rattle and the rubber grommets on the bottom make it very convenient to put on hard surfaces without scratching them.

Over all an amazing case as long as you read the parts it comes with and plan accordingly (see other thoughts)

Cons: Some may say its too heavy but its a full tower so I fully expect that.

Fans on full speed move a lot of air, hence a little noise from the airflow, but again if you buy a case with 6 fans stock you probably are not going for a silent rig.

Other Thoughts: Couple things to consider:

- This case has a bottom mounted SSD spot, with a very very large PSU I can imagine this would be an issue. If you have a few solid states or like to have them all mounted in a bay you will need to get a 2.5 adapter kit. No biggie though

-Liquid Cooling: This is my fault for not looking but keep in mind, yes there are 2 120 fan slots in the back but they do not fit a radiator. I had to do some custom work with a dremel and drill but a CORSAIR Hydro H100i radiator WILL NOT fit on the inside of this case with the stock holes. Not worth an egg but it was something that frustrated me. (some radiators may fit but mine did not so do some research and ask around if you are using a dual fan radiator)

Last but not least, keep in mind that all these fans come with 3 pin connectors and no adapter for going directly to a power supply. Again not worth an egg but something to be mindful of.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's alright.

Pros: The thing is HUGE. It'll fit everything you've got and then some. In addition, it's got a TON of fans, and half of them are filtered. It does a good job at keeping any components inside cool. Bottom mounted PSU is great. LOTS of drive bays, plenty of room for a ton of hard drives. Good cable management options.

Cons: The filters for the fans are a pain to remove. As in, most of the time you won't bother. You see, in order to do so, you have to remove ALL of the hard drive bays. The top 200mm fan is, like most all 200mm fans I've dealt with, unlike any other on the market, so replacing it is a pain. In fact, replacing the front fans is a huge pain. I'd know because I've replaced every fan in the thing (they were blue, I wanted red.) and it literally took me all day to do. Most of the time was spent on the top 200mm fan.

Other Thoughts: I've owned mine for many years, and it's done a decent job of doing what it's supposed to do. I even added a couple of 80mm fans to the side panel with no issue. I ended up taking out the filters because they ultimately hurt more than they helped. I've never had an issue with a part being too large. I even fit an upright 120mm CPU cooler in with no issues.
