5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: -Plenty of room
-Tool-less design for SATA devices
-SATA bays are positioned to hide the SATA data and power connections in the side of the case behind the motherboard
-Light functionality is pretty cool
-Looks great
-Plenty of fans and well designed airflow
-Angle adjustable feet that keep the case higher from the ground to allow for better airflow
-Fold-out headset hook
-DUST FILTERS

Cons: -Bought a side fan to go with the case, and it outshines the stock fans' LEDs by far. Wish stock LEDs were brighter, but it's trivial
-Wish the fans had higher output, but again, trivial, especially with the amount of space available for extra fans and space to allow for airflow

Other Thoughts: I have been using an Azza case for five years and loved it, but finally felt I needed an upgrade in space, cable management, customization, and convenience.

This case is a bargain for the features and size. Highly recommend it!

Will update my review should anything go south during my ownership of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsThe easiest rebates in the world-FAIL

Pros: Excellent case. Used in a build that was wrapped under the tree in time for Christmas. I even bought 2 extra "colorshift" fans along with sleeved 3 pin adapters and extensions to complete the build. Now that the Holidays are over this PC replaces the Christmas tree lights when it is running.

Cons: Thermaltake claims my rebate docs not received within the 20 days submission over the Christmas holiday. This is bulldookie. I have copies of documents but they can not tell me or show me the postmark date. I get no emails to follow up the process nor was the the online review updated in time. I found out by calling to see where my rebate is and I spoke to a real person to no satisfaction. I am very ripped about the rebate process which should be the easiest on the net.

5 out of 5 eggsHi mom

Pros: I've been a computer nerd since 1980, have built many many computers over the years. Thermaltake has been my case of choice for the last couple builds, and will be the only brand i use from now on.

The list of features is extensive, i'm sure you've read them.. No use in me posting them here.

Cons: I wish the back panel had a tad more space for cable mgmt.

Other Thoughts: Great cases, you've gained a life long customer.

4 out of 5 eggsStill love this case

Pros: Design is very...gamer-like (meaning awesome)
Large
Color scheme (I don't normally like blue, but this case made me a fan).
Easy to remove panels.
Plenty of Hard Drive bays, for expansion.

Cons: Not enough space in the back for the basic cables to be stowed, without causing the back plate to bulge.

While it's not the fault of the maker; after I assembled my liquid cooling system, with UV tubing, I found there was no where to adhere the UV lights to. The only spot that providse the right amount of illumination, is the window; which of course putting a long light tube there would defeat the purpose, as it would obstruct the view.

The instruction manual seemed to be written in "Engrish". It was legible, for the most part. This was my first time building a computer, so the confusion that came from some of the instructions, made it a bit more difficult. Luckily I was referencing Youtube at the same time.

Other Thoughts: I've had this tower for about 2-years, and am still happy with my purchase. After a few days, I stopped using the LED features, because it was more distracting that anything. It's a nice gimmick, but only cool if you're trying to show it off to someone else, whether in-person or in a photo (I have UV Liquid Cooling tubes as well, but don't use the UV light anymore, for the same reason).

Overall, it's a great tower, that I love to look at.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: It keeps cool rather well, even with just air cooling, it is large, large enough to accommodate a GeForce 970 and then some, it is blue, like really blue, which matches my MB and graphics card, and oddly my power supply.

Cons: The only issue i have with this so far is I can't find a good way to carry it, since it has panels(the front and the top) that tear away, also its a large case so its already awkward to carry

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice case, but a little cramped for a full tower

Pros: •Very nice looking case
•fan filters for bottom, side, and front fans
•good ground clearance for better airflow
•easy to remove front and top covers
•built in HDD dock is nice if you work on other computers from time to time
•thumb screws on the expansion slots (nice that it doesn't use those fragile plastic clips)
•rear motherboard access without removing the motherboard - less risk of damaging the motherboard when installing an aftermarket HSF this way
•decent cable management (except the bottom cable slot, which is useless with and ATX board)

Cons: •kinda cramped to work in, considering its a full tower - it would be nice if it had a slide out motherboard tray like some of their other cases
•comes with Thermaltake fans (which in the past have only lasted a year, and they are louder than alternatives)
•it would be nice if the bottom fan slot allowed 140mm fans
•the SATA cables for the docking bay and E-SATA ports aren't labeled - trial and error is needed to figure out which is which (needed for some proper BIOS settings)
•I received a cheap plastic 5.25" to 3.5" drive converter with no front slot, rather than the metal one in the picture

Other Thoughts: •it seems weird to me that a full tower doesn't support EATX boards
•I don't get the current fascination manufactures have with a bottom mounted PSU. I suppose this is useful for liquid cooling, but for air cooling, it just results in more audible noise due to the CPU HSF being closer to your ears and nothing in between to absorb the noise
•personally, I find external (or built into the case) fan controllers to be pointless (aside from the LED control if you keep the Thermaltake fans) - I think its best to let the motherboard adjust the fan speed based on current temps

5 out of 5 eggsHuge, Great Case

Pros: -Lots of room - fits huge gpus, huge cpu tower coolers, etc.
-Looks great - Nice LED fans, clear window, cool/aggressive design
-Great Airflow - Lots of space + huge fans make for great airflow and nice temps
-"Tooless" - Thumbscrews where there are screws, no tools needed for optical drive/hard drive bays.
-Dust Filters - Mostly easily removable dust filters (all except the one on the side fan, but they can all be vacuumed reasonably without taking them out) to keep the components nicely dust-free. (One on the front, the side, and the bottom (for the psu))
-Feet - Keeps the case off the surface it's on to allow air to flow from the bottom (for the psu).
-Cable management - Keeps the case looking tidy and allows more open space for air.

Cons: Cable management - This is probably more my fault than anything, but it would have been nice to have a little more room for cables.
