1 out of 5 eggsUpdated from February 2014

Pros: Still love the case for the room it provides and fans.

Cons: Large fan has dies already, less than a year old. The power button is sticking, have to press it numerous times to get the computer to turn on. Yes I have check the connection and power supply, both in good condition.

Other Thoughts: I believe this is only the second time I have had to leave a negative review on newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet, Spiffy Cae

Pros: Spiffy, roomy design; HUGE fans with user-controlled LED colors; both side panels are removable to aid in rerouting/hiding cables, reducing overall clutter; awesome screwless HD assembly that couldn't be simpler to use (you can still use screws if you REALLY want to but it's not required).

The price is not bad for a full tower, either.

Cons: Be careful if grabbing the front of the case to pull it forward or pick it up; the whole front is removable and you'll just pull it right off.

If you have a lot of cords routed behind the side panel underneath the motherboard, you might have to push in the panel quite a bit to keep it down as you are putting the back screws back in.

It doesn't make me coffee or toast.

Other Thoughts: The case is probably one of the more subjective choices when building a PC (at least when choosing from options available from the quality manufactures like Thermaltake), and I have to admit that I mostly picked this case based on looks. The fact that a lot of thought was also put into this case's inner workings was a definite plus.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Nice, Built Well, a Lot of Room

Pros: -There is a lot of room on the inside of this case. I run a Windforce GTX 770 and a Phanteks PH-TC14 CPU cooler, which both take up a lot of room in any setup. This case had enough space to fit both of those and still had a lot of room to organize the PSU wires to power everything up. It's a full tower, so room is to be expected, but coming from a mid tower case I'm very satisfied overall.

It comes with 3 LED fans, one on top, the rear, and bottom front. There is also space to add more fans if you want, as well as controls at the top to change RPM and LED color. There's also the window on the side if you want to admire your build.

-I love how easy it is to connect/disconnect HHD/SSDs. It uses a handle that unlatches and folds out to unlock which you then just slide out. The drives then just snap onto the holder and you slide it right in. No screws or anything, quick and easy to work with. The cords face the rightside panel underneath the MB, so any connectors won't clutter up the inside of the case. DVD/BluRay readers also slide in and out of the front for easy installation.

-There are plenty of openings leading to the back of the case underneath the MB to make organizing power cables a little easier. They won't clutter up the inside as much so long as you take advantage of this.

-The last Pro I want to mention is really just the aesthetic. I consider this a pro, I like the way it looks, the lights, the style, and that it doesn't just look like a boring box. It stands out compared to other desktops, which is something I wanted in my PC. A small thing that doesn't really hinder on the physical quality of the case, but sometimes it comes down to that.

Cons: There's only one con I noticed when putting together my build. While the doors are easy to slide on and off, locking them into place is a little annoying for me because of the two screws that hold them in place. I remember years ago on my old Dell desktop, the case had a handle that you pulled and the side door came right off. No screws, just a handle to tug on. It's minor since you don't really open the case that often, but still they put a lot of effort in making other parts of the case quick and easy to work with. It'd be nice if they did the same with the panel.

Other Thoughts: This is my second case coming from a Zalman mid tower. In short I'm happy and much prefer this case over the last.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: - Looks amazing
- The multi-docking station is great
- Doors are easy to remove
- PSU is supported at the bottom of the base with a sort of bridge
- Color modes for the fans are pretty cool
- Fans themselves are relatively quiet

Cons: - There isn't an obvious or easy way to pick up this case
- The top section of the case just pulls off, exposing the two top fans. I'm not sure why the top would need to be so easily removable, especially when the back could have had a convenient handle for lifting the case.
- Reset button is very close to and disguised like the fan speed buttons

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is an excellent case. I love the cable management, and air moves through this thing like nothing else. The dust filters are great, so air is the only thing that can move through the case. Again, one sticking point is the fact that it is not easy to get a hold of this case to lift it up. If you grab on to the top portion where it feels like your hand should go, you'll just lift the top grill right off. I have no idea why it is supposed to be so easy to take off.

5 out of 5 eggsLove It!

Pros: Tons of space on both sides.
HDD trays support SSD without a converter.
Those 200mm colorshift fans are very nice.
Clean look on the inside.
Comes with front bay frame for 3.5" devices.
Dig the blue accents, but that's a matter of personal taste.
I was able to get a really clean look on the inside, which I never could with my old case, which lacked decent cable management.
Lots of great i/o ports and features on the top of the case.

Cons: Would have liked better cable management options other than some zip ties.
Top does come off quite easily.
Nothing but plastic on the bottom of the feet. Wish their was some rubber or felt on them, but that shouldn't be too difficult to correct.
Larger window would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: For those that have USB 3 rear i/o ports and no internal header, pick up the Gino Blue Header Adapter Cable from other major online retailers. Works like a charm!

I e-mailed Thermaltake and they have replacement Colorshift fans for $20 on their site. I had a hard time finding them via a store search, but I sent them an e-mail and they sent me a direct link to them within an hour.

5 out of 5 eggsTruthfully

Pros: -Looks Very Sleek & You Choose LED Colour
-Easily Removable Parts
Top
Front
Sides
-Adjustable Feet
-Extra USB ports (Very Useful)
-Amazing Top Sata Station
Basically makes it capable of putting in and removing hard drives like they were flash drives.
-Extremely Good Air Flow
-Headphone Holder on Side
-Reset Button

Cons: -Comes with bad stock fans
-HDD Holders are Plastic
-Feet are Plastic
-Window is cheap Plastic (Still clear as glass though)
-Spots to tie down cords or have cords travel through, personally I think the spots were poorly picked
-Cheap Plastic Bottom and Side Filters, causing it to be grey and build up dust and hair making the fan suffercate.

Other Thoughts: Generally, I think this case is honestly Beautiful. I personally wish I would have went with a bit more of an open look inside type of case due to multiple LEDs, but either way it's a nice case with super easy removable pieces and generally does exactly what it is supposed to do. Though this is a relatively heavy case, especially after all the computer components are in it. So if you want a case you're never ever, going to move again. This case is an amazing battle-station case, especially with it's headphone holder on the side. That has literally been extremely useful.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case. Horrible Experience

Pros: - Very pretty
- Amazing Airflow
- Sturdy
- Almost too good to be true price wise!

Cons: - Instructions were a little lacking so what should have been a 3 hour job ended up taking about 6.
- Zero information on how to set up the fans

Other Thoughts: The shipping process was the WORST I have ever experienced. I was legit mad enough I wanted to slash all FedEx tires and burn down the building :|
Long story short, 1 lazy driver, 2 lies about attempted delivery, 5 phone calls to the company and 5 days later I finally had to drive an hour away to get my case.
