3 out of 5 eggsPretty slick case

Pros: Looks great, the drive bay slots are ez, decent ventilation and the side panel latches are awesome (although I can no longer open the side that the motherboard is attached to, due to my Corsair H50).

Cons: NO cable management, whatsoever. It's definitely hard to make the cables look pretty in this sucker.

Other Thoughts: Kind of a con, I guess, but the wires that connect the top ports (eSATA, audio, mic, USB) to the motherboard are really flimsy and cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Sexy Looking, All my friends think I spent a lot on it, and it wasn't expensive.

Great ventilation options. I did replace the fans with some aftermarket ones simply because of color. But I have no problems with cooling in this case.

Hard drive bays are a nice touch.

I love the tool kit it comes with on the bottom of the case.

The way the case opens up is perfect for quick fixes/adjustments.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is that the PSU is on the top. I wish it were a bottom mounted PSU.

Other Thoughts: Looks like a glowing storm trooper. ;)

3 out of 5 eggsGood Idea,,,,Bad Design

Pros: I love how the motherboard tray drops down so you can mount your motherboard easily

Cons: The power supply should be mounted at the bottom of the case. I installed my motherboard with my V10 coolmaster heatsink. When i tried to close the motherboard tray it wouldnt close because the power supply was in the way. I took the heatsink off and went with the stock heatsink for my CPU, when i closed the motherboard tray it wouldnt close because the hard drives were in the way, So i just took it all apart and returned this case.

Other Thoughts: I cant help to think if they put the hard drive tray side ways it would fit my video card and if the power supply was mounted at the bottom would allow for my heatsink to fit

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Great

Pros: Easy access to all bays allows for smooth installation; The three fans keep air flowing over all components and a fourth 80mm fan is easily snapped in; The side pannel that holds the motherboard is fantastic for instalation and allows for easy access to PCI and PCIE slots; Instead of a side window the unit has a vented pannelthat helps with air flow, doesnt seem like a big deal but I feel it helps a lot

Cons: The cables for the power/reset buttons and the front usb ports could be a touch longer. With my setup the are too closs to my CPU fan for compfort. Although both side pannels fold down the case could use just a bit more room on the inside to make running cables a bit easier.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think its a good product but with a little tweeking it could be a great product.

4 out of 5 eggsSlick Looking but...

Pros: The case is really gorgeous. For the most part, quite sturdy. The foldout motherboard tray was super-convenient...case wires were all long enough that I could assemble everything with the motherboard tray open. Very quiet computer thanks in part to layout. Ample room inside. Aside from fans (see Cons), this case made the build easy. The spare parts box is a neat idea.

Cons: The fans that come with this are junk. They have two-wire molex power connectors and the pins are loose. I replaced the 180 mm side fan and added an NZXT fan controller to overcome the limitations of the case fans. The wires for the top connectors (audio, usb, e-sata) should be 24 inches longer. They stretch across my motherboard to get to the connector head...there may be enough play to route under the board but I would have preferred routing around it. The top connectors are USB 2, not 3.

Other Thoughts: There is a space for an 80mm fan on the right-side of the drive bays...I will probably add that. All in all, a really nice case and a joy to work with.

5 out of 5 eggshighly ventilated, looks cool

Pros: It looks cool, keeps the computer cool, and it makes building the PC easy. highly reccomended

Cons: the front audio connection cable is really short to reach the connection on my particular motherboard. don't really care since I don't use it, but it should be longer

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Good case for the price.

Cons: The front fan made some weird noises, but that was easily fixed by simply replacing the fans. I also have trouble pulling the back out due to my heat sink being to big; however,it isn't much of a reason to complain about.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case

Pros: love the look of this case. just a clean looking case all the way around. comes with three fans. easily removable 5 1/4 bay covers.

Cons: the only con i have with the case is they promote the motherboard tray being able to hinge off the other side of the case for easy access to the motherboard. The only problem is you have to unhook ever cable from the motherboard before you can do it cause none of them are long enough. and once you have installed everything and routed your wires its not worth it.

Other Thoughts: fantastic case for the money. good venting. very attractive. but hinged motherboard tray not very effective.
