4 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: I like this size case when I build my own machine, gives plenty of room to work. The fans included with the case are great! They're quite and keep my dual core machine cool.

Cons: It weighs like 1000 pounds! Ok maybe not that much but it's quite heavy compared to other cases of the same size.

Other Thoughts: It's been a while since I built it but if I remember right the positioning of the power supply was a little weird and more complicated then it should have been.

4 out of 5 eggsKandalf

Pros: The case has very nice airflow if you dont mind some noise- i took out the front fan and the top one and the case started heating up like crazy, so i removed the rear fan and put in liquid cooling- had to drill some holes for the GALAXY II because this case wasnt built to fit it. Overall though its a good, ROOMY, extremely spacious case, and it looks nice.

Cons: -There is almost NO cable management, so your case will look messy if any one were to look inside of it.
-It weighs more than a couch.
-its loud.
-it will heat up if you remove any fans.

Other Thoughts: My recommendation would be to get the new side cover they have with the gigantic fan on it, thats really where you need the airflow- due to their lack of putting anything on the side cover for ventilation.(that would be a big money saver as apposed to buying liquid cooling)

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case, some faults though

Pros: I originally purchased this a year ago if not longer for Christmas. It has amazing amounts of space, the fans run smoothly, and it is very versatile. Each of the front panel plates can be adjusted to fit either a floppy drive or a CD drive size expansions. I can see this being very useful for those who customize their case to every extent.

For setting everything up, there's plenty of room for the six hard drives that I have. There's two removable holders, each which has a fan to cool it. This certainly is a reason to buy as it keeps everything cool. This case works very well also for those who don't enjoy using screws, though I put in some on each side to secure each part and removable pieces.

Cons: I don't know if they resolved this, but the case that I own has a fault in the threading of some of the holes. This is usually in places that aren't necessary, but still would be preferred to secure certain peices.

The front door came with the magnet not being glued on, or it was glued on and came off. I never got around to roughing up the surface with a Dremel and then securing it with epoxy, but that would be an option to solve it.

Due to this, I managed with the doors on for the past year. Tonight I spent the time to properly clean out and arrange things with zip ties, and I removed the doors. The bolts that hold them in come out easily with strong pliers. the the corners could have cathodes added for extra lighting, but that would be more of a 'bells and whistles' addition. So far it allows stronger air intake and keeps it running cooler.

The external ports on the top side are out of place. It sits on top of my desk, and reaching up is a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Great case, amazing design, but the doors are obnoxious. I suggest this case for anybody who wants it, although there are some out there I would get now that I have experienced it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice case with a thick steel chassis. Large enough to easily work on and in.

Cons: Front door came damaged.

Other Thoughts: I just need four little pins to fix the front door.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Case!!

Pros: An overall superb case. Ordered to replace my mid-tower, and was impressed with the size and space. The layout is slightly different from the traditional which improves the air flow. The case is fairly silent for having a total of four fans. And the case can withstand a three year old and a one year old's curiosity.

Cons: The only con in my opinion is that the two front swing doors feel somewhat flimsy. They are of sturdy material but wobble too much for my taste.

Other Thoughts: Thermaltake is the VW of computer parts, not too expensive, dependable, and look attractive. I would absolutely buy this case for a second computer and recommend it to anyone else.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case! Spacious and looks awesome!

Pros: It is very big and spacious, and looks great! The blue LED fan (combined with my Thermaltake V1) creates a strong, but not overpowering, blue glow. Installing the components was easy for the most part; and now they all look great inside the case looking in from the window. Worth the price, would buy again!

Cons: Acouple of minor issues: All of the screws came in one bag, with no specification on which ones to use where. Most screws worked anywhere, but it would have been nice to have some more detail. Also, only two of the four fans have three pin motherboard connectors. Finally, the PCI Tooless bracket has to be taken off for larger video cards, which is kind of annoying.

Other Thoughts: If you want a great, spacious case; this is definetely a strong contendor. I think the front and the rest of the case looks good, others don't think so...

5 out of 5 eggsIs there an echo in here?

Pros: So much room I'm not sure what to do with all of the extra space! The north bridge heat sink looks like it gets in the way of the vid card but it didn't for my ATI 2900XT.

Cons: Heavy

4 out of 5 eggsSpacious

Pros: There is so much room inside this case it is unbelievable. I had 3 HDDs in it, could have added many more if I had. Airflow is great, and with 4 fans in it this sucker stays VERY COOL!

Cons: Seems to attract so much dust. My other case didn't have this problem. I am seeming to have to clean this thing almost daily as it is covered in it.

Other Thoughts: Bit pricer, but totally worth the $xxx. Also not a con, but even with turning the LED switch off on the inside of the case, the LEDs stay one regardless.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Tower

Pros: Very roomy; I have 7 hard drives in there and I still have room to expand. Cooling is excellent, design allows for great airflow. Tool-less 5.25" drive bays work better than I thought they would, and make installation much quicker. The pre-wiring is decent, and fairly straightforward. The accessory box is actually somewhat useful for holding little things like screws so you don't lose them. Upgradeable to BTX if needed, good water cooling for those who need it.

Cons: Manual is lacking, provides the basic setup instructions but not much more. If you have a big PSU, installing it will be tricky, and the PSU support bar won't fit. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Great case, looks great, if you need room for expandability, this is the way to go.
