4 out of 5 eggsFirst Case

Pros: Relatively easy install. Plenty of room to work in. Cool design. Plenty of fan spots.

Cons: I was unable to fit the Hyper 212 evo and the 200 mm fan on the side. I don't use the fan control, cool idea but one I find impractical.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it is a decent case that has room to expand. For builders who want to have everything, I would look for a case with more room on the inside.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Very roomy inside with plenty of cable management space, built in fan controller, mounting for both 2x200mm fans and a 240 rad on top at the same time, sleek design.

Cons: I would have liked to see a fan on the bottom to help push air to the top because some of the wires behind the mobo tray block the vent on the right side of the case (which is no big deal), the wires on the fan controller for the fan on the back of the case is way too short.

Other Thoughts: Great case overall. The built in fan controller is great for powering all the fans on the case, but as for controlling speed it's not all that great.

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom RD

Pros: Looks Great - Stylish but not overbearing
Hyyooooge
Easily Adjustable Fans
Quiet
Excellent build Quality

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This comes with one USB 3.0 on the front panel, and one 2.0. Since my Mobo doesn't support usb 3.0 I bought a cheap adapter to use it as a 2.0... and the converter fried 2 mice I plugged in. Not a fault of the case itself though.

The case only has one front intake, but its easy to just plop a fan underneath your DVD drive (if you only use one) to create even more airflow. Its a nice way to provide a source of fresh air to your CPU. You can even use some foam to 'mount' it in.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Spacious
HUGE
4 fans, two standard, 2 MASSIVE and all of them were quiet and pre-installed

Cons: Fan cables were a mess to figure out
So were the front panel cables to an extent

Other Thoughts: First time buyer on newegg and jeez do they deliver quick! Will definitely be buying again! Though I will say that trying to figure out where i was supposed to plug in the fan cables drove me nuts until i saw an adapter from my power unit lol

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome looking case

Pros: The cable management capabilities of this case are out of this world. I love how both sides can be removed and cables can be routed behind and back through the panel where the MoBo is attached, makes for a super clean looking interior. One reason I bought this case was for the red LED's, since I'm sick of the standard blues on most custom cases. They certainly did not disappoint, they look amazing. Fan controls work great, and look awesome too. TONS of room inside. Love that there is so much space for additional fans, which I installed new glowing-red fans into all the places (after some working around for one of them...) and it looks sweet and performs super cool. The power button has some nice solid action and none of the fan controls or the power button feel flimsy. The case itself feels very well put together and is really heavy, which I think is a pro, and its large size and multitude of fans give it excellent ventilation.

Cons: Some weird compatibility/space issues. For one thing, the two 120 mm fans on the side of the case interfered with installing a hard drive in the furthest right drive bay. The fan pushed against the cables and the case couldn't close. I worked around this by installing the HDD with the power and SATA inputs facing the back of the case.
In addition, the rails for the HDD bays are super weird. When installing my Western Digital HDD, the little peg things that come with the case don't completely fit the HDD (don't line up with the holes on the side 100%), and they don't hold the HDD in well since they are pretty short. I ended up having to completely jury rig this thing using other screws that came with the case and screwing the HDD into the slide-out tray from the bottom. Also, and this could be an issue with OCZ too but the "adapter" that came with my OCZ SSD also didn't match up with the tray in the case and also had to be jury-rigged to work.
There is a secondary drive bay to the left of the main drive bay, and it's in a ridiculous spot. I had to remove it completely in order to install the PSU and plug in any of its rails. Nice that the case comes with so many HDD spaces but kind of silly placement. It wasn't hard to remove but it had me wondering why the designers placed it THERE.
The case comes with some fans, and there are spaces to install other fans if desired. I bought a 200 mm Cooler Master fan to place in the blank spot in the main case door. The space is 200 mm per the case specs and the little "grate" in the spot matches up perfectly with the size of the fan I bought, so I know it's the right size, but the holes for the fan in the case and the holes in the fan itself do not match up at all. Very frustrating. One corner matches up and the other three don't. Not sure if this is a flaw with the NZXT case or with the Cooler Master fan, but either way it was obnoxious. Ended up taking a power drill to the fan and drilling my own custom holes in order to make it compatible with the case. Not ideal but hey I really wanted to use this fan (:

Other Thoughts: All in all the problems I had with the case are easily worked around with some creative troubleshooting, so it's not worth dropping an egg for them. Just some frustrating silly things. But the case itself is solid and I love how it looks, I love the "pros" about it much more than I dislike the "cons".

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Everything I said below plus still holding up great. Still quiet. Everything still works.

Cons: None. Read my other comment. below.

Other Thoughts: If you go to their website they also sell a 3.5 inch insert which is a media reader. It's pretty nice for only $35.00.

It solves the not enough usb ports also. However you will either have to leave the door open, take the door off, or find an alternative method if you use the usb ports semi-permanent.

4 out of 5 eggsA Definite Presense

Pros: Looks solid, feels solid
Lots of cable-routing solutions
Versatile, huge
Looks awesome (I get lots of comments that it looks like it's from Mass Effect)
Big fans, super quiet, fan controller is a nice feature

Cons: Perhaps too huge? It is quite bulky. Probably excessive if you only have 1 video card and a couple hard drives. Still looks awesome though.
Top surface is not flat! This means you can't set anything on it, like your external drives you're plugging into the top-mounted USB ports, or your stereo remote, or your other usual case-top decorations. This is a very minor issue though, and the case is so tall, the short USB cable that came with my external will reach the USB port from my desk anyway.
Also, on my particular case the fan controller "died" after about a month. I discovered this was because there was no solder on the pins for the control sliders, resulting in a flaky connection. After applying some solder it's been fine ever since. Could be a one-off defect, or a real manufacturing problem, not sure, so I only took off one egg. Either way it was easy to fix and I've had no trouble since then (5 months on).

5 out of 5 eggsTons of room and features

Pros: I love everything about this Tower. Its been my personal tower now for a long time. Room and Features and plenty.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: im just getting ready to retire it. Tho not bc anything is wrong just time to move on. Hoping Rosewill Throne will be nicer ...... but im having my doubts. I also didn't care for the mesh side and my CPU cooler wouldn't fit with the side fan on anyway. I ordered a complete side panel with window instead of mesh directly from NZXT...... looks way better and the temps dropped maybe 1-2 degree's.
