5 out of 5 eggsVERY Pleased

Pros: This is my very first real case for my gaming PC. Originally it was in a confined case chosen by the local PC store I *USED* to depend on for all my PC needs. Over the past two years not only have I been converted from console gaming to PC gaming(thank you, thank you lol)...I also learned a bit how PC building works. I knew my old case was poorly made. Too confined, which lead my gamimg parts to be VERY hot. Originally I sought out only for a new CPU cooler and learned that for a proper one, its gotta be fairly large. Which lead me to needing a brand new case. The Thermaltake (particularity THIS model) is the only one that truly stuck out to me. I HAD to have it! Watched the Newegg review and even a few Youtube reviews. ALL were happy with it. I ordered the case, an extra 200mm blue LED Coolermaster fan and a Coolermaster CPU sink. The case arrived in only two days on a free shipping 7-10 day expectancy! I opened it up and my jaw dropped LOL This case is BEAUTIFUL! And built with strong materials. No cheap plastic gimmicks all over the place. Even the mesh inside the frames which I expected to be plastic...are actually steel! The front logo is made of metal as well. Whatever of the case that is plastic is very strong and durable. Everywhere but the feet which I'll explain in the Cons. Its been a month and I still can't stop running a hand over the case sometimes as it even feels strong. I "built" my rig for the first time with this case too. Very easy to do. I took a lot of pride and had fun putting my computer together. And successfully with no errors when I powered her up! The size of it made me give my PC a new name, too. Agnis (dunno just looks like a Agnis to me) There is plenty of room in this case. I was only concerned with some reviews where some thought the back where you tuck in the cords was too confined. I got it all tucked in nice and neatly though. A tight fit, yes, but not where it causes the side panel to bulge out. My rig is cooled with fans only, no water cooling (not ready to brave that yet lol) but I can see how water cooling could easily be implemented here if or when I'm ready to do it. The top and back exhaust fans are powerful. Its actually better than the extra Coolermaster fan I bought for the side panel mount. The fans light up brilliantly and the stock fans are super quiet, even on High. I plan to complete the case with a extra 200mm top fan later. The screw-free HDD docks and optical drives was fun and simple to use. Extra filters in the case just puts it all together as icing on the cake. My old case would be quite dusty after a month. This new case however I was impressed with how little dust there was inside it.

Cons: -There *could* be a lil extra room to fit the cords in the back side panel.
-Make sure your Motherboard has a built in 3.0 USB port or you won't be able to use them.
-The reset button is a little misleading. It has a clear triangular cut as part of the button, which I thought was just a LED for HDD usage. But it isn't. So be careful not to get curious and touch it when in the middle of doing something important on your PC!
-There is no LED to indicate when your HDD is working. Not really a con, but to me its something I need to get used to.

These last two are the TRUE cons everyone can agree on:

-The thing is HUGE and HEAVY. And picking it up to move it when you need to clean it is a daunting task. Awkward picking it up as the top and front of the case easily snap right off. I grab it at the very bottom of the front and use the spare grommet holes in the back to lift it up.
-The feet are actually the cheapest part of the case as they are hollow and with no rubber padding. Not good if your case is on a wood surface or anything that's easy to scratch. Make sure you got something underneath it.

Other Thoughts: Overall, first time builders like myself and experienced builders alike should love this case. Easily. There are cons listed but the positives way overrule the negatives. Yes!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: This case had everything I needed. Very spacious, and easy to use. A buddy of mine was jealous at how easily the Asus Maximus Hero VII motherboard fit inside.

Cons: If you're moving the top fan to the side panel, you absolutely must remove the side dust filter or else the fan won't spin. Not sure why.

5 out of 5 eggsFlashing Lights

Pros: Lots of space,
Multiple 200mm fan mounts
Colorshift Fans
Huge

Cons: Huge

Other Thoughts: This case is massive. It allows for great airflow and plenty of fans. I was able to attach my h100i to the top with both of it's 120mm fans beneath the top 200mm fan for great radiator cooling. There's plenty of room for expansion, and it looks really good. Fair warning, this is larger than other ATX full towers that I've seen, so make sure you have enough space for it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case!

Pros: I love this case! all the good reviews that you are reading is true. This case has lots of room to expand and is worth the money. The first case I got was a NZXT (I believe) and it didn't not work out at all because the fans were DOA. Getting this case was a great decision.

Cons: The only con that I can think of is this case is BIG. So when you buy it be sure you have a spacious place to put it. I really don't consider this a con because in order to have a lot of room in the case it has to take up a lot of room.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Product

Pros: I thought the Grand Canyon was large. This beastie has enough room for a time zone. On sale it was even better.

Cons: A a couple of minor nitpicks: The large front panel cable (ie for USB) should be marked as such. Secondly, the side to side orientation of the 3.5" bays took a little getting used to, and 3) a bit more space on the MB backside would allow better cable routing.

5 out of 5 eggsThe last case you will ever own.

Pros: TONS of space
Lots of room for fans
Amazing cable management
Supports massive fans
corsair h100 cooler fits like it was made for it
airflow is great
looks pretty amazing
easy to take apart and clean

Cons: Reset button location - right next to your fan controller buttons....if you are up late night gaming and aren't careful when using the buttons you could accidentally reset the computer. Not to mention people seem to always want to put their hand on the case when talking to me and its always near to the reset button. Just poor placement for that thing.

Other Thoughts: This is an amazing case. I have built quite a few computers now and this is the only case I recommend anymore. The tool less drive bays are pretty sweet and this thing supports some monster fans. I bought an extra cable and 2 extra color shift fans so I have 4 200mm color shift fans that work with the onboard fan controller and led button to change the colors. This is THE case to get.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for anyone who needs space!

Pros: Very spacious, great design, thick high quality steel case, very nice fans that move a lot of air even while quiet, great feet that swivel for easy placement. Easily removable top, front, and easy drive bay mounting system.

Cons: The only con I have is that do NOT like where the reset key is placed on this case. It is very easy to bump not only when adjusting fan settings but just setting something on top of it may bump it. I also would have liked a side fan but not that big of a deal.

5 out of 5 eggsoo so preddy

Pros: Little holes in the back for amazing management of cables.
Really tall--I thought my last tower was a full tower, now doubting that. Lots of space, really comfortable.
Sweeto LED system, really amazing fans and super-rad air-flow (compared to my old Alienware tower).
Location of the power button is cool, and if I were a button-enthusiast I'd be darn enthused about this satisfying button.
Able to change the speed of the fans, and able to slightly configure LED color or setup some flashing.
The window lets awed onlookers look on with awe at the flashy gear you'll set up inside the tower.
The whole thing has an amazing industrial, spacey, air-flowy feel.

Cons: Real-con con:
A v-shaped LED around the power button flashes while the PC is asleep, making ME unable to sleep with my entire room flashing blue.

Non-con con:
The window lets all that afore-mentioned flashy gear make my room bright as heck at night.

Other Thoughts: It's been eight years since I've had a new tower, and fork me this is quite the upgrade. It's awful, I give it 16/10.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build, First Case

Pros: This is my first build ever. I am very happy on how easy it was to install everything. There is a lot of space. Lots of bays for drives and storage. The lighting effects are great to show for friends but annoying over time.

Cons: Large case. This is my first one and I did not plan on where i was going to place this monster. Take measurements.

Other Thoughts: With its size you need space but it makes up for it in how much you can put inside it.
