5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied and More

Pros: I looked into every case on the market. I had picked out another one, but this one was on sale.
I could have made a big mistake by not choosing this case.

The cover isn't as hard to remove and put back on as everyone says. If you've ever built a comp in the last 20 years its not a problem.
Excellent airflow, space and cable management.

Cons: There aren't any fan controllers.

Other Thoughts: Despite no built in controllers for the fans, they run smooth and cool.

Configurations may vary, and you'll find many mod holes available. This case will probably accommodate anything you're thinking of. Top notch on build and workmanship.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very spacious case, allowing a great deal of flexibility in system configurations. It ships with eight fans and offers variety of fan mounting options to change the stock configuration and add additional fans to the setup. Two power hubs come pre-installed to provide power to all the fans. In addition to this several rubber grommets along the back allow you to install external liquid cooling systems with relative ease. It offers both a top and bottom mount for power supplies, allowing for more configuration flexibility including a dual power supply option for more power hungry systems.

Cons: The spacious interior of the case comes at the cost of it being rather large, and at times unwieldy. It is also a bit heavy, tipping the scale at about 37lbs before any system components have been installed. It does come with casters that can be installed to help move this behemoth around.
One of the power hubs for the fans is mounted under one of the fans mounted to the drive cage, making it difficult to plug devices into it. The power and data connectors for the external hot swap bay isn’t aligned properly for any of the 3.5” hard drives I had laying around to test it with. Lastly, the side panels are somewhat difficult to remove and put back on. That is due to a combination of the size and design of them.

Other Thoughts: In all, the case was what I wanted, as most of the issues that I came across weren’t deal breakers for me. One thing you should note if you decide to purchase this, or any other case that is this size, is the length of cables connecting to components within the case. The distance between my bottom mounted power supply and the top mounted blu-ray drive resulted in the power cable stretched as far as it would go. Likewise, the SATA cable for the same drive just barely managed to make it.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: Large, spacious case that supports a variety of build options, including a top mounted power supply if desired. The drive bays are sleek, removable, and easy to work with. The case supports pretty much any size motherboard on the market and has an open spot in the tray for easy mounting of CPUs without having to take the motherboard off.

The case also comes with wheels that make it easy to move around.

Cons: Packaging is sub par. The case comes with over a hundred screws of various types and they're all in one bag rather than a few small bags sorted by size.

There are no air filters on the fans that are easily removable and cleanable except for the bottom.

In order to mount the Corsair H100I (which the case does support) you must remove the top 240mm fans (assuming you mount it per the manufacturer instructions. You cannot mount the radiator to the fans directly as the screw holes don't line up.

Other Thoughts: This is the second time I've purchased this case and it probably won't be the last simply due to the fact that its large size and configurable cooling options make it good for a variety of builds.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Overall Case
A lot of room
Good cable management
Good options
Clean design

Cons: This is more against the condition I received the case. One of the bottom stands arrived with a hole the size of a US Half dollar coin. If i was not lazy I would send it back but it is not ruining the level of the case so it's just ugly to look at whenever it is visible. Strangely the box arrived in great condition, no marks, dents or other dings. Also upon opening the case I noticed the inside was a mess. Almost all of the bays were unhinged and just scattered all over which lead to some scratching on the inside but also the box holding the screws was not strapped down in anyway. I'm guessing from all the movement it lead to the bags holding all the screws to open. I had a mess. So i'm deducting two eggs for just lack of quality control and damaged product. Granted the damages are not enough for me to warrant a replacement but I am positive if it was anyone else they would.

Other Thoughts: This is the first Newegg product I received with any sort of damage. I guess my luck ran out and it was just my turn. This is also my first Rosewill product, it's a shame it lacked some finesse. However still a great case.

5 out of 5 eggshuge case

Pros: Has lots of space, comes with 3 230mm red led fans, 2 red led 140mm and 3 140 mm fans.

I have an ATX mobo and it fits and has ALOT of room to add stuff into it. lots of room for custom water cooling loops, lots of room to work with.

Cons: The holes for the screws are a little misaligned so getting the side panels on is a bit to work with, the bays for the expansion slots are a little off and it felt like i had to bend the graphics card to get the screws in, but its in and works so.

some extensions maybe need for some, getting cables from one side to the other is quite long for some.

Other Thoughts: The case is huge! got it on sale for $170 and there is a $20 MIR so that's nice, lots of room to expand for whatever you need.

The mesh on the side panel is held on by folds in the mesh and looks to be easly removable to mod (i hope to make it a window).

Has lots of hdd bays to satisfy most needs, the trys come equipped to hold both 3.5" and 2.5"

Comes wit a fan hub of sorts, you can plug in up to what seems like 9 fans with one 4 pin molex, they run on full blast though and makes the fans hum a bit but I find it ok.

Bought the case to be "the last case I will need", I hope to start modding and water cooling with it and since there is a lot of room it should be fun.

5 out of 5 eggsUltra & Super Are Understatements

Pros: Bountiful cooling and spacious enough for clean cabling and still have plenty of room to get your hands in and work. The top-front USB and External SATA Docks are invaluable when you're constantly swapping out drives and devices like I do.

Cons: If I had to give it a con, I'd say the weight. Fully loaded, it's heavy to move. No knocks to egg rating though since I expected this when i bought it.

Other Thoughts: With my old case, my system would overheat a lot and BSOD before shutting down or rebooting itself. I considered going to a water cooling system, but the "full sized" case lacked the room for it. I bought this and I haven't had the need to goto water cooling because this case manages air flow so much better than my last. I'm considering buying this case again and building a new PC instead of upgrading this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Airflow

Pros: This was the case I chose for my first personal build. I could not have been happier with this case. This case is big. I didnt know how big it would be until it got here. Being big it has more than enough space to have whatever you want in it. The airflow in this case is amazing as well. I've never had any over heating issues. And everything in this case is overclocked to its maximum. The cable manadgment system is a great feature. It has plenty of space so you arent trying to squeeze all the wires behind things and then having a hard time closing the side panel. The red LED's on this case are awesome it lights up my room at night.

Cons: I've only ever had two issues but they are so minimal to me that they werent taking off any eggs for this case.

The wheels on the bottom of the case are a little flimsy, I dont think they were built to handle much more than the case already weighs. But that could just because I have had it for so long as well.

The mesh on the front that you have to remove to place the CD/DVD drives are a pain to remove. At least they were for me. I actually got to the point where I had to pry them off with a screwdriver, they got so bent out of shape that I couldnt put them back on if I wanted to.

But as I dont need to put them back on no point in really complaining about it.

Other Thoughts: This case has a lot of fans. Make sure you have a power supply that has enough molex's to be able to power them all. This case for me has never gotten to hot. And I didnt have enough that two of the fans are never on. I highly recommend this case.

4 out of 5 eggsHUGE

Pros: Huge tower. Fan headers are very nice for hooking up several fans. Even with all the fans its pretty quiet considering. Comes with lots of fans

Cons: Fan header location is poor. Both "headers" built into the case are located very close to optical drives and hd caddys and are nearly impossible to connect to. Some fans seem to have minimal airflow. Dock one egg for performance of fans. I purchased 6 new fans that flow better

Other Thoughts: Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz
ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME
16gb G.SKILL Trident X Series
Thermaltake Toughpower 1200w
Samsung 840 pro 128gb SSD

5 out of 5 eggsMassive

Pros: Fans still running strong after a year, quiet suprisingly, good cable management, grommets around everything still good after more than a year, comes with 10000 screws bolts and everything. Really good case not a problem yet.

Cons: Dust accumlicates faster than normal due to high air flow, i didnt like the mesh on the intake in the front and exhaust on the top so i just took it apart and took it out, easy enough to remove NOT worth taking any eggs off becuase lots of cases are like this

Other Thoughts: Good case thats going to hold all my upgrades and easy to work with

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Excellent cooling and cable management options. Very customizable! PLENTY of space for just about any type of setup you could think of. Despite the number of fans, it runs decently quiet!

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: As others have mentioned, this thing is HUGE. I currently have an ASUS Maximus Hero VI ATX motherboard in there, and this case has so much room that it looks like there is only an ITX board.
