4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Tower with Minor Grievances

Pros: It's quiet, gets plenty of airflow, and has a very nice design. The blue LEDs work very nicely with my setup, and there's PLENTY of room for upgrades.

Cons: Not even one full day into owning it, my front left LED didn't exactly die, but it goes off for long periods, blinks back on for maybe a few seconds or so, then goes off again. I know it sounds strange, but it really does happen like that. And for that reason, since it is a front LED, I subtract an egg from this review.

Another thing I should put out there (although it's not exactly bad enough that I'd subtract another egg over it). I'm also not happy with the green loading dot underneath the top front LED. It's out of place with the rest of them. A more neutral color, such as white, would've been better in contrast.

Other Thoughts: Overall, other than the LED issue, this is a pretty nice tower. I'm three days into my ownership of it, and if I can somehow get that one little thing sorted out, I don't see myself replacing it for a good 3 to 5 years at least.

4 out of 5 eggsA Batmobile of computers.

Pros: Sleek Style
Lighting
Price
Fans and mounting

Cons: Price
Bad fan placement
Rubber linings for cable management
Cable management
Questionable support

Other Thoughts: The price is a pro and con. I purchased this case at 55 USD, but it's normally 80 USD. 80 is a highly competitive, and while the features are on this case are really cool, it might do better being 60 to 70 rather than 80. The rubber linings for the cable routing holes are just awful. I was barely able to get all the psu cables I need through the holes, and I had to remove the linings to do so. The cable management is poor to. I would have liked to have seen more space for cable management behind the motherboard tray. I was barely able to close the case with all the cables routed. Removable drive cages would have been nice to see, more so for 80 USD.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but has issues

Pros: Looks awesome.
It has many included system fans

Cons: My PSU blocked some of the rubber openings for cable management. It had plenty of other openings so it's not a big issue. It's just not a fit with my PSU, I'm not sure if there are different PSU sizes.

Space behind motherboard for cable management is too little. Some of my thicker power cables can't fit with the side lid on. Had to route thicker cables in front of the mother board instead.

Cut-out for mounting CPU cooler bracket behind the motherboard is too small or is slightly positioned incorrectly. Almost had to re-install motherboard just to mount the CPU cooler bracket behind it because bracket won't fit. My CPU cooler bracket maybe in the bigger range in terms of size, I'm not sure.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's held up

Pros: It's worked for what I've needed it to. The USB ports are on the side, which is nice, seeing as at the time of its release, many manufacturers were putting the ports inside of the door, so that you couldn't close it with anything plugged in.

It's nice and roomy inside, with decent options for cable management - decent, but not superb.

It also has great ventilation, bringing in air from the bottom, and "exhaling" it out the side.

Cons: The fan controller doesn't seem to work well, if at all. I've plugged it in and run a fan utility to track the speeds, but turning the knobs makes no change. They're there for decoration, I suppose. It's best just to clip those wires, to get them out of the way. They end up just making your case a mess.

Other Thoughts: Even with the one gripe, I would recommend this case to anyone looking for a sleek, low-management case, for a decent price.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy NZXT

Pros: None

Cons: Our client picked this case. It arrived with non-functioning LED lights on the front panel. Our client actually wants the LED lights working. Newegg would charge a large sum to ship this heavy case back and exchange it.
NZXT is completely useless. They could simply send us a new front panel and solve this. We've tried Live Chat (no one responded), emailing, and also the Support RMA Form on their website. Complete silence from NZXT. Will never buy NZXT again due to this.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's a case

Pros: Well, as stated. It's a case. It has some nice features with the fan control, flashy lights, etc. It'll fit the necessities for sure. There's no problem mounting fans, two GPU's would fit with a little effort, and there is cable management. However, I did have this case 2 years strong with essentially no problems until now.

Cons: With that said, capability is not mastery. Yes, you CAN fit fans on the top / back. Easily. You could probably even fit an h60 / h80 depending on your MOBO. However, if you wanted to get something like an h100i, or even institute some sort of push/pull system on the afformentioned, you'd need a different case. Also, the case has cable management, but its not the BEST in the world. The back area is tight, and there's only two holes for you to tuck the wires into where other larger cases have upwards of 4 and a wider area in the back. With that said, if you don't have at the very least a semi modular PSU you will have a VERY difficult time managing your cables and if you do want this case it is a very smart investment. Also, having bought this case because I like glowy things, I was pretty upset when I realized my current set up doesn't really have the ability to fit a 12 inch cathode light kit. Finally, having recently purchased an SSD, the 2.5 in bay adapters the case comes with don't really work. It's hard to explain, but it's quite awkward and I had to insert it backwards which interfered with my cable management which was already a problem to begin with.

Other Thoughts: I never did get the fan controls to work. That's not a con, but at the time of building the computer I wasn't too experienced and I never got around to trying to figure it out. Also, one of the stock fans recently lost a blade spontaneously, just snapped off, lord knows where it went either. Well, that's about as fleshed out a review I can give. It's a solid case, unless you plan on going all out with your build.

5 out of 5 eggsLook great and nicely set

Pros: Look Great
Easy to set up
Can easily hide wire
Really light
Many fans, easy to had more.
Lot of space

Cons: Less light than my old NZXT Nemesis one.

Other Thoughts: Come with a 2.5" to 3.5" case that can carry two drives, was really useful for the two SSD I bought, that came with none.
