1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: looks awsome decent ventalation

Cons: the sides of the case if you take them off more then about 4-5 times to clean it the little flaps that are at the bottom will bend making it so you literly have to hammer it back in to position otherwise the side with the fans will not go back on no matter what real pain in the .... dont buy this if you work on computers or if you are attempting to install a cpu fan good luck...

4 out of 5 eggsLong Term Review

Pros: Tons of cable management space and ventilation. The core functions of this PC Case are amazing.

Cons: The quality of the peripheral gimmicky stuff isn't so great. For example, the LED lights in the fan and the Fan controller module are burning out one by one. I have like 3 lights out in the fan and 2 in the fan controller. I guess it's not that big of a deal but it does make the case look old now. So minus 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: Would I buy it again? probably. It's good bang for buck. But it's not perfect and there are prettier cases out there now.

3 out of 5 eggsRoomy Case with great management

Pros: *Roomy; Plenty of : bays, Mobo room, PCU room, Video card room.
*Cable Management is nice. Hidden behind the motherboard, and routed through various ports.
*Plenty of places for fans (Also a con)
*Top fan has LED and looks pretty cool. All other fans do not have LED.
*eSATA port on top of case
*Fresh design, clean looking
*Sturdy/Rugged case - doesn't flex and seem well built
*Easy access w/ use of thumb screws and tabs
*Easy to assemble and plenty of hardware
*Easily understood instructions
*Support listed

Cons: *Only includes 4 fans - the other 3 fans are purchased separately.
*Could only find one option for a top mounted liquid cooling reservoir (SILVERSTONE TD02-E). All other options were rear mounted with a smaller reservoir.
*Only 1 USB port on the top of the case. All other USB ports are on the back, from the MOBO or PCI.
*The case is large -- very large. (but this is also a pro as there is ample room for hardware)

*Biggest con: Side fan is intermittently stalling. The LED on the fan controller blinks off and the fan loses power. This is a dual fan component with 2 smaller 120 MM. I have checked/rechecked the wiring harness and it is secured firmly, but I continue to be plagued by the intermittent fan issue.

Other Thoughts: I am really pleased with how this was designed. The cable management, and amount of hardware you can put in this is great. I am frustrated with the bad fan unit. Cooling was one of the reasons I purchased this case. I hesitate to purchase the additional 3 fans if one of the fan units wasn't working to begin with. I am also frustrated that NXZT doesn't make a top mounted reservoir, or show one that is compatible with this case on their site.

I think I will be somewhat pleased with this case once I tackle the cooling issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing, except...

Pros: Pretty much everything. Looks great. Air flow is excellent.

Cons: Mine didn't ship with a top 200mm red led fan, just a plain ol' 200mm fan. Doesn't hurt the performance at all, so I didn't knock off any eggs.

Other Thoughts: I almost kicked my fiance out of bed to make room for it the night I got it; it is that sexy. Of course, I'm joking, but only partly.

5 out of 5 eggsBIG fantastic case

Pros: I had this case almost as soon as it hit the market. I loved the aesthetics and the space of it. It housed three different builds in it and had WAY too much room left over. Many fan options and space to add whatever your hear contents. Plenty of cable management, and room for all the extra drives you will ever need. Not to mention, the unique appearance of the case is rather pleasing.

Cons: Only real cons I have for it was the weight when it was fully loaded and it did not fully support some closed loop coolers. Also it was far bigger than originally expected, but that is not nzxt's fault but my own.

1 out of 5 eggsMissing Pieces

Pros: The case itself is fine and looks to be in good condition

Cons: I am missing everything else, no screws or manual, not sure if there was supposed to be a packing slip. Can't build anything without the rest of the pieces

5 out of 5 eggsConfigurable to the max

Pros: very versatile. easy to take apart and to manage cables. tons of space and can even fit one of EVGA's ridiculously wide classified video cards with enough room to put a fan on the side panel. It can fit tons of drives peripherals and expansions. It's also pre upgraded to USB 3.0. liquid cooling is a native feature and even comes with internal radiator mounting hardware for an internal radiator with options for an external radiator as well. best of all it looks different without looking ridiculous. This case would be excellent for a workstation, gaming rig, or similar project.

Cons: extremely heavy with all components inside. entirely non-portable. It's worth mentioning its difficult to get at its radiator mount point.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty awesome

Pros: Very nice looking and super spacious.
Fan controls on top = awesome!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The only complaint I have so far is about the packaging I received because it was damaged (torn off) and caused a dent on the side of the case. However, I didn't notice that dent at all until I was building my pc with a friend and he pointed it out. Now, since it's too late to return (already finished building my rig) just want to say maybe be careful next time?
I'm not so sure if it's a Newegg's fault or NZXT's fault but I'm deeply disappointed
