3 out of 5 eggsGood When New

Pros: Eye Catching
Bottom Mount PSU
Nice Cable Management If Your PSU Has Long Enough Wires.
6 Fans Out Of The Box

Cons: lost my first fan less than 2 months into owning it was problem free for about 6 months then lost another fan, then one at a time both 140's went out in under a year. Very disappointing at how much of the case had to be disassembled to change the two 140mm fans and the two front 120's i had it in pieces everywhere and without remove the mobo getting the top fans out is a choir to say the least.

Other Thoughts: its nice looking.. and back to impressive with 4 new fans in it. but i am very disappointed at how long the stock fans lasted.. i still have 120's from my thermaltake armor case i bought 7 years ago that are perfectly functional.

5 out of 5 eggssweet

Pros: Size, Nice and long for a mid. Fits my 570 nicely, 8 harddrives very nice. The dual fans on top help a lot. The paint is sweet. Lights are a nice touch and the tented windows is sexy. Cable managment is very nice.

Cons: The paint job is not perfect. There are spots where the transfer did not take and there are some small chips from the side panel. But really if you where not looking for them you would never see them. The harddrive mounts are nice but would rather see side mounted for faster install of new drives.

Other Thoughts: Other then the small cons I give 5 eggs

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Paint Job

Pros: Outside Paint job is very ice, Inside black powdercoat/paint job is very nice. Set up to watercool everything. LOTS OF FANS! Blue LED strips down the front are very cool.

Cons: $$$!! This is really about a $70 case with a $50 paint job. Inside was disappointing, flimsy with some sharp edges. Thumbscrews have PLASTIC grips on them! Cable management was a nightmare for me, fan connectors are capable of mobo connection or Molex but you cant separate the unused connector type. This case is also huge and heavy and loud!!

Other Thoughts: I guess i just expected something a little nicer for $150. Looks good but was not fun to work on.

5 out of 5 eggsThis case is flat out...Sweet!

Pros: Nice nice case. Built a friends rig with a cooler master and he is slobbering all over my sweet case. Front comes off easy. Lots of room. Paint job is top notch. PSU can vent to vent in bottom ( I have case lifted on a grated stand). Tons of room.. a huge mid-size which was fine by me. Neons are awesome. The strip neons on the front are a nice touch. The opening on the back for th 6/8 pin power connecters is a real nice detail.

Cons: The fan vent in the back could have been a little further over so the side panel doesn't hit when I installed an external filter (hate dust bunnies). Other than that, I'd buy it again in a blink of an eye.

Other Thoughts: Don't hesitate on this one. He who hesitates is my next COD kill.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but could have been great.

Pros: Flashy and feature-rich. Cable management is a dream with this case, all wires hide neatly behind the motherboard tray--I am running all fans with a fan controller too, and you cannot even notice the wires tuck away so nicely. My Radeon 69xx card fits beautifully in this case, NZXT really did a great job with space management--in my other gaming case this same video card seemed overbearing, in this case it looks right at home. Really happy with the bottom Power Supply vent! The upper tool-less drive features work, and the lower harddrive mounting works wonderfully. Fans seem to be fairly quiet. This case definitely had some thought put into its design and it is nice knowing that it can handle whatever extremities I may toss its way.

Cons: All of the features and design did seem to come a price, however: quality of parts and the front bezel (seriously?). The issue isn't so much that the bezel is plastic (plastic is fine), but it feels like 'cheaper' plastic which isn't solid, like a cheap child's toy--could use some internal framing or be a bit beefier. Also, the whole snap-the-bezel-off to get to the filters is terribly outdated compared to the rest of the case, and its competition--I would expect to see this in a tower from the late 90s, or with an oem build, but not for my gaming rig... The print job did also come with its flaws: scratches and the print being applied over small imperfections on the edges of the case, but it is not terribly bad, but they are there. The steel framing feels thin (much like an oem case). The filters are junk, I honestly threw them out... If anyone of NZXT is reading this, check out filters on an Antec 902 case and see what your competition is...

Other Thoughts: Over all I am both happy and disappointed. The case's features are good, but honestly this case could have been amazing if it were built with a redesigned front bezel, quality materials, and sturdy filters--even if this came at a price point increase shy of the $200 mark to cover the materials, it'd still be worth it.

My case and cpu temperatures did go up a bit when I moved the computer parts from a competitor's case (3 C at idle, and at load it just goes up from there...), so that is also worth noting, considering it is within the same price range--I know 3C at idle doesn't seem like much, but when overclocking this could put one past their comfort zone, temp-wise, and be a reason for clock speeds reductions, especially when the CPU seems to be the bottleneck for high-end GPUs at our current point in time.

Hope this helped, I tried to be as fair and critical as possible.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cool scheme. Sturdy. Lots of room. Lots of fans. Long case control leads. Great cable management & protection. Parts included if you want to remove 2nd internal drive rack & put more than 3 devices out front panel.

Cons: Bad packaging. Paint on front top corners worn thru paint. Finish is rough, like painted in dirty environment & has paint spatters on front frame. Corner of side panel chipped. MB stand-offs had to be tweaked for proper alignment.

Other Thoughts: Mostly bought this one because I liked the Artic Camo. Unique, fits my style. But disappointed in quality of finish.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case comes with six case fans installed, and provides excellent airflow. My load temps dropped by about 5c on average (for all components) compared to my old case (which had only one fan, lol). It has a cavity on the right side for hiding wires, to make the inside look a lot neater. It also features a small cut-away in the motherboard trey, allowing you to easily install after-market CPU coolers. Best of all, this case is beautiful.

Cons: The tool-less structure isn't the most intuitive one I've seen in a case. I struggled with it for a few minutes before it all made sense. However, the case seems nice and sturdy.

Other Thoughts: In the three days I've had it, this case has turned a lot of heads. Even if all you have is an old pentium 4, this case will make it look like a monolith more majestic than the one seen in 2001 space odyssey.

5 out of 5 eggsForm and Function

Pros: This case is gorgeous to behold and very roomy to boot. The side panel has a raised area that coincides with the dual cable management ports to give over an inch of leeway. I set up a bus of all the fan molex back there and it fits great. There is a large cut out on the back plate for installing an aftermarket cooler. I'm using a standard ATX motherboard and in this Case it allows the 4pin 12 volt connectors to come up thru the extra space in the cutout with ease. The arctic camo paint job looks very unique and I get compliments on that factor alone. The included fan system with this Case seems to be more than sufficient and I feel that the noise it produces is better than tolerable with all the fans at 100%.

Cons: There are some very slight defects on the camo printing but nothing I would dock an egg for.

Other Thoughts: NXZT must be taking a cue from their customers because unlike some of the other reviews the rubber grommets around the cable management ports did not pop out when routing all the cables and the power and reset buttons felt much more resilient than others had described them to be.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Everything! It is huge for a midtower, i never had any problems fitting anything into it. It does a good job keeping everything cool. It gets a little loud but its not something you notice unless its quiet in the room. This was my first build, and installing the harddrive, Cd drive, was all very very easy! they just *snap* into place. It was very roomy as well.

Cons: I turn it off every night regardless but if i dont it bothers me when i sleep.

Other Thoughts: CAMO=AWESOME. Screw all the other lame cases!

5 out of 5 eggsNice case. Get it on sale.

Pros: Case designs is great. Location of the HDD's with the fans right there is very nice. All case fans and input devices working. It was $100 on sale! Can't beat that.

Cons: Don't waste you time with the pain in the flimsy plastic tool-less gimmicks for the 3.5" drives. Just throw those away and screw those things in. Sometimes tool-less is just more work figuring out how to use the thingsy they give you than actually turning a screwdriver a few times to get the job done. If this case had the phantom's tool-less "tool" then it would be great. Not worth taking off an egg though b/c I love this case!

Other Thoughts: This is a big atx! Longer graphics cards may come close to the HDD's on top.
