3 out of 5 eggsLove it but....

Pros: Beautiful! One of the best looking cases out there. Black wiring makes it easy to fill with black parts and have everything be jet black. The way the MB mounts is glorious. This thing looks absolutely sexy.

Cons: Havn't had it even a year yet and after using the front door maybe 10 times it broke and will no longer latch in the down position. I just inspected the case today and noticed that the metal side feels rough as if it is rusting under the paint job. This is extremely worrying for me.

Other Thoughts: I would buy another one but the door issue so many have complained about needs fixed and the side door issue is the first I've seen of it. I cannot be having any part of my build rusting or corroding.

3 out of 5 eggsCool looking case, heat issue?

Pros: The design is pretty amazing considering the 90 degree motherboard mount, cable management is easy.

Cons: HEAT ISSUE!!! I mean running a single is is fine but, the lack of fans in the case itself is horrible. I run 3 way GTX 580 SLI and idle I get is high 60's with 100% fan speed, it would've dropped really low if they made the back of the case with a intake fan for air cooling, but I guess they left it for custom liquid cool.

Other Thoughts: Wish there was holes to wire cables through.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth the investment

Pros: The vertical motherboard mount is awesome it keeps my 2 Gigabyte SOC GTX470's running in SLI cooler than most would expect they run about 75 C under full load. My FX-8120 oc'd to 4.0Ghz with a zalman cooler runs at about 50 C under full load. This case is whisper quiet and no temps are over 55 C. Awesome case. Love the look.

Cons: Only con would be if you use any video adapter's dvi to hdmi etc... you may not have enough space to use them. Not a con at all for me just something I noticed.

Other Thoughts: Asus Sabertooth 990fx
FX-8120 4.0 Ghz
zalman cnps 9900max
16GB Gskill Sniper Memory
2 Gigabyte SOC GTX 470's
1000W XFX pro series PSU
2 Adata 120GB SSD's raid 0
1TB Segate Storage drive.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Door

Pros: Great looks and interesting 90 degree layout.

Cons: The door mechanism decided to break just when the 1 year warranty ran out. As a result, the door no longer stays down and shoots straight back up no matter how many times I push it down. I disassembled the front panel/door and found a cuboid 50 cent spring catch mechanism at the base of the door to be at fault. I'm quite annoyed because because I'm now stuck with a $200 case that has unusable CD drives.

Other Thoughts: I bought it for the looks and looks are all it's good for at this point.

1 out of 5 eggsExpensive, flashy, but not worth the price.

Pros: Unique heat dissapation layout (90° mobo layout), unique "stealth" fighter look. Not overly flash, but discreet but still with style.

Cons: Quality. I read the reviews on here about the front panel sliding door and how it broke on everyone. I was like "Nah, won't happen to me." I took the shot and bought it in December 2011 and it worked great. Yesterday however, it decides to slide upward out of nowhere; it had finally broke. I couldn't believe that what everyone said was true. Very dissapointed in this case. Even from the beginning, the front sliding door slid upward in a "choppy" manner (not a smooth sliding mechanism) it it looked like they just threw some vasoline in there to slide it (no ball bearings or anything). It just kind of blemishes a case that is this price tag$, having a broken front panel like that. If you think, it wont happen to you, think again...

Other Thoughts: Also, it needs to be said the cable management of this case frankly SUCKS. I don't get how companies can make a case that looks this visually appealing (in my eyes) but skimp out on quality and important things like cable management, especially when cables impede air flow and this case is designed with optimum air flow in mind. I was very dissapointed to find out the grommet holes inside the case mobo tray are so small in diameter you CANNOT even fit anything OTHER THAN A SATA CABLE! even the Sata PSU cable you have to BEND and swivel and tilt to get it through the hole (its soooo tiny). No chance in heck getting a Graphics card 6pin or 8pin PSU or, especially a 24pin PSU. You would have to drill out the mobo tray for that. so you end up having cables (big ) run up the front of the case, which is ugly because you can see it through the window. Also, the front sliding door WILL break on you. I'm getting a HAF X next time... I bought this case to be different ; big mistake.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome case

Pros: -Awesome case design
-Plenty of room for some builds*
-Good air-movement with vertical cooling so it naturally moves hot air upwards.
-High quality and durable case material.

Cons: -*With 2 cards in SLI set up the case does get a bit tight, so there is limited space for certain builds. (Wouldn't recommend this case for a 3-way or Quad sli set up)
-Cable management is kind of difficult.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing!

Pros: These earphones are amazing. They fit comfortably in your ears. I had these things in for over 3 hours and felt no discomfort at all. The bass is pretty epic also. Buy these!

Cons: Only con is the foam covers are too big for my ears.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: looks nice, doesn't make too much noise

Cons: I am very dissatisfied with the build quality of this case. Judging by the reviews, I am not the only one with a defective door latch. This isn't a major issue for me, because I don't use optical drives as often as I used to. I am extremely dissatisfied with the fact that my reset switch has also failed. The button will depress, but there is no click, and no reset. I have contacted Silverstone customer support, and unless something is done to correct these clear design flaws, I will have a hard time even considering another Silverstone purchase

3 out of 5 eggsbad case for Air Cooled Sli.

Pros: ~Top notch materials
~Motherboard Positioning
~Easy to Clean

I have had this case over a year now. I have done both Single GPU and Dual GPU setups in this case. That being said with a single card setup, this case runs ice cold. My average temps on air cooling are in the 40C range. I overclock my processor and gpu's. Running 100% stress test resulted in a peak temp of about 67C, single gpu (GTX 275, 560ti, 580) All in all, this case is great if you are looking to just have 1 graphics card.

Cons: This is where the eggs fall. I like to Sli and I like to Overclock. If you are looking to Sli, find another case. At first when I was running 2 x GTX275's the temps would be about 40C (card 1) and the other would be in the 90C range (card 2). At first I thought that it was the cards, so I upgraded to 2 x GTX560ti's. Same thing 40ish on one card and 90s on the other. At this point I decided to upgrade the Fans, I bought 2 x 180mm Fans that claimed 180+ CFM and a 120mm fan that claimed 240+ CFM. Same result, 40/90C. At thid point I decided to take the 2 506ti's back and spend a few extra dollars to buy 1 x GTX580. Under full load, I have not seen a temp reach 70C. There just isnt enough airlfow to cool 2 cards.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case if you are going to run 1 card or liquid cool. I strongly suggest you look elsewhere if you plan on Aircooling and running an Sli/Crossfire setup. Good luck and I hope my oppinions help you with you thoughts of this case.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Impressive

Pros: Very nice look. Plenty of room inside for dual loop liquid cooling. The 90 degree rotation of the mobo is one of the greatest ideas that I've seen in any case. Great temps when using just air cooling. Fairly easy cable management (if your patient).

Cons: It's a little tight when trying to fit two 12 inch light strips in. Had to put two more holes in the back for the second liquid cooling loop.

Other Thoughts: Other than those two cons, it is an awesome case all around. I still get compliments about how cool my computer looks :P
