5 out of 5 eggsLove this very functional case

Pros: Fan filters
size/ space inside
USB port locations
Sleek look

Cons: None. No window maybe

Other Thoughts: I bought a few of these. love em. I don't like the new model due to no CD drive. Can't say enough about this case. It has the easiest fan filters to clean.

4 out of 5 eggsGet what you pay for!

Pros: I like this psu but i would rather spend a few more dollars to get maybe a seasonic or corsair.
I like the blue led nice touch

Cons: The cables are too short to run behind my full tower but i had a nzxt premium cable pack so it was fine.
You have to take the bracket of the fan to mount fan down.
Makes a wierd buzzing noise every now and then

Other Thoughts: If you want something cheap to sli or crossfire sure go ahead but a 750w seasonic for less would be much better

5 out of 5 eggsUnique Design

Pros: HDD installation and removal is easy from the front
Wire management is fairly easy
Front removable fans is a nice touch
Fan switch works well
Sound deadener helps reduce GPU noise if you use a blower style
Wire management is easy
5.25" drive bays are easy to install & secure
Did not cut myself of the case

Cons: Stock fans can be a bit noisy on load
GTX 760 was a tight fit with SATA power cables
Front intake fans can be restricted from the front panel, I installed a bottom intake to help
Hard drive was a bit difficult to get to clip in the cage

Other Thoughts: Its a quiet simply case, very few LEDs and they are not overpowering.

In reveiws of this case it came with the USB 3.0 out of the back of the case, they fixed this with a new version comeing with a actual header that plugged right up.

3 out of 5 eggswires

Pros: quiet, solid build

Cons: sys fan wires too short to reach motherboard.

Other Thoughts: online support has no manual. fan wires too short to reach motherboard. so fans in front of case are useless. had this case a year and added more harddrives and decided to use front fans in front of harddrives but fan wires leading to 3 speed switch are too short to reach motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my needs

Pros: Easy installation, smudge-friendly exterior, no bright lights, lots of spaces for big fans, easy-to-clean air filters over all air intakes, cable tie-downs in all the right places on the interior, and overall sturdy feel for the price.

Cons: Cramped, it will fit a full atx board, and a big video card, but just barely.

Other Thoughts: Great for a home or office desktop. Get a modular power supply. I didn't, and it made the install more difficult than it needed to be.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Almost silent, looks good, great size, everything worked and no damage on it.

Cons: Instructions are usless. Honestly how hard would it be to give us an extra page of info?? The HDD trays are also hard to work with.

Other Thoughts: Do NOT get this case if you are a noob builder.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case with Few Caveats

Pros: The hot-swappable HDD bay on the top is a game-changer. I would have bought this case JUST for that feature, as it makes work much easier (IT Consultant). As for the case design--excellent. I wish they made a full-size ATX case with the same features, as it can get a bit cramped with big PSU/GPUs etc. This is the first case where a truly silent PSU can be attainable. I've used a silent CPU cooler, fanless PSU and with silent fans and a GTX Titan, very, very quiet. The way the fans remove for easy cleaning is also fantastic. This case is good enough that I'll likely add a video review shortly.

Cons: Rubber gaskets aren't glued or firmly attached, which makes it difficult to fish PSU wires. No full-size version of this exact case. Fans are quiet--but others are quieter (and cost more, of course!). Would be nice to have a foam-lined option for the bottom instead of mesh for more damping. Finally, the way 2.5" HDD/SSDs attach to the removable trays (which are a good feature, by the way) could be improved. With a little ingenuity, the bays could fit two SSDs each.

Other Thoughts: All in all--this case is many steps ahead of even the best cases from all manufacturers. I've worked in IT for over a decade, and have built well in excess of 500 custom PCs, and this case has more ingenuity built into it than any case I've yet seen. I have never seen a case that packs so much value. I have worked with the Coolermaster Stacker and Cosmos series, the Antec 1200/900 series, the top level Silverstone cases, and many, many others. The NZXT needs to continue to improve this case and make it a flagship, and include a full-size ATX option. I--for one--would buy it. I am beyond impressed with this case. I have worked with the other NZXT products in the line and none blew me away--except for this one. Even with the room I see for improvement, this is an excellent case and well worth the five-egg rating I've given it. For those who complain about the manual--they need to either gain some common sense or patience. Either suffice with this case. If you purchase a case for the manual, perhaps you should simply hire someone with more experience to build it for you, or buy from a custom builder.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case I've Ever Built With

Pros: I used to build computers on a daily basis for a living. This is without a doubt the best case I have ever built a computer with.

Amazing quality
Amazing aesthetics
Amazing cable management
Amazing silence
Amazing case

Look out Thermaltake.

Cons: The rubber things around that cable management holes come off easily when moving cables through them, it can be a little frustrating but I wouldn't dock any points for it.

Screw holes are not all threaded properly, so screws are a little tough to move sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Buy it.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Poor Cable Management

Pros: This case with included fans is very quiet. The three-speed fan controller is placed front and center. There is a lot of space inside for plenty of 5.25" and 3.5" drives as well as 2.5" drives. The hinged door is nice to keep a sleek look at the front. The build quality is great. There is a HDD dock on top where you can slide in a standard 3.5" or 2.5" drive which is great if you can enable hot-swapping on your motherboard. There is a nice cover for it as well as a cover for a grill where you can mount an additional 140mm fan. There are filters on all intake fans which is great for keeping dust out of the system. I clean them about once a month. The black paint is very nice and stays clean. It is nice having the single USB 3.0 port and three USB 2.0 ports on the top. There is plenty of room to stuff cables behind the motherboard tray.

Cons: The front door is kind of annoying when i have to use the optical drive, and doesn't mask the sound of the drive. The reset button is the same size as the power button and it is quite easy to press accidentally when adjusting the fan speed or using the top-mounted USB ports. Inside the case, the rubber inserts next to the motherboard fall out very easily when routing cables through them. I wish the hard drive mounts were rotated 90 degrees to make installation much better.

Other Thoughts: I built my system about a year ago using this case with an ASUS p8z68v-le board, Core i5 2500k, EVGA GTX 560ti. Later when I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus the cutout behind the CPU socket was nice because I did not have to remove the motherboard to install the backplate. The case is nice, however I am picky enough to not recommend this case because of the hard drive mounting. It is very quiet, even with the fans on full and running games with the CPU and Video card releasing a lot of heat.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall a Good Case, But...

Pros: Quiet Case with fans on low. Higher fan settings can be heard, but aren't too bad. Filters for most input fans. Roomy interior. Easy access for most components. Stylish case. Front fans are sleek with no visible power cables, just contacts.

Cons: Customer Service Stinks. Case arrived with one of the three USB 2.0' inoperative. Contacted NZXT service but they never replied. Obviously customer service isn't of utmost importance since they didn't even have the courtesy to answer an e-mail. Front input fans are NZXT proprietary, so if they ever fail, you'd have to again deal with their service department for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Customer Service is important to me. Had NZXT replied to my defective case, I would have rated it higher. After doing some digging into the USB issue, I found that one of the USB wires was not seated in the plastic clip properly and now the case works fine. Shouldn't have to troubleshoot a new case.
