2 out of 5 eggsNot as cozy as it should have been

Pros: Really sleek looking, liked the idea of being able to mount a fan in front of my hard drives (which I was unable to do because there is literally next to no space in this thing)

Cons: This is my second case that I've bought from Silverstone that I either have to ghetto-rig or put in the closet. I can't even use the hard drive bay because my graphics card is about an inch too long, the optical drive bay doesn't come out at all and takes up a good fifth of the space, so I can't even imagine squeezing a full-sized ATX board in this, as my my micro-atx board feels beyond cramped. Trying to use the bay that goes on the far-right side of the case for my hard drives, but as soon as I took it out, I can't get the thing to mount back in, because the manufacturer chose the most inconvenient way to mount and hold in the covers/place-holders for the empty slots. Even less happy with this case than I was with my Grandia case. What a shame, especially at this price point. If anything, this case will probably start to lose integrity and fall apart like my Grandia.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could return it, but it'd cost more than it's worth to reship and restock this guy. Pity.

I originally bought it to replace my Grandia, a case by Silverstone as well, seeing as how I couldn't fit my graphics card in it, but now in this case I can fit the graphics card but I have nowhere to put the hard drives in correctly and can't even get the front-hole covers to go back in place.

5 out of 5 eggsSharp case

Pros: This is a solid, well built case. It looks great with my TV stand and looks like a piece of electronics and not like a PC.

Cons: Tight! No air! Do not use this case for a hot gaming rig! I won't dock an egg for that, it is a HTPC case and a nice one.

Other Thoughts: This case is precisely what I was looking for. It works as intended and it looks good. I warn against using it for gaming because it will run hot. I have a Phenom 2 and a couple of old AMD 5670s and I had to reset all to stock speeds. It all runs well and quiet.

An HTPC rig doesn't need a lot of power, so if you stuff one in this case you will not be unhappy. It really is a good looking, solid case.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy...

Pros: Looks okay in the A/V setup...

Cons: The product does not meet the specifications. The specs say that I can connect a 80mm fan to the 3.5" Drive bay. However, the front I/O panel that accommodates the USB and Audio ports blocks the fan. You can either have a fan for the hard disk, or the front I/O panel. Not both. Since I wanted to have a fan for the hard disk, I had to remove the from panel, which left awkward holes that one will see when the front door is open! And I lost the audio and USB ports in the front!!

This is not the only problem. The box is very badly engineered.

1. Removing the drive enclosures is not easy!
2. The side fan must be installed before motherboard is installed!! If the fan ever dies, you need to remove the motherboard to replace the fan!
3. If the SATA cables are already connected to the motherboard, removing the drive enclosures is nearly impossible.

I have two 3.5" hard disks, one Bluray drive, and a 2.5" SSD in the box. I can barely put my hand in the box now. The space is really tight. I don't see how anyone can pack the box to the full extent!!

I would have returned the box if I had not cut out the UPC from the box. I will still try calling newegg and see if they would take it back...

Don't bother to buy it. You will regret it...

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Case with a great appearance

Pros: I just moved my hardware over from an Antec case to this unit. Reason being; a better looking case that rested horizontally and matched my other home theater stuff.
-The aluminium fascia is perfect. The case looks great. It's clean, solid and well designed.
-All of the compartments can be taken out and, for the most part, easily modified.
-Lots of spots to put in external drives and other HDDs.

Cons: -Rubber grommets for hard drives, (as my previous Antec case had) would help with noise/vibration reduction.
-More venting from the front of the unit. As most appears to come in from the sides. So far, no issue.
-The PSU mostly cover the larger vent on the side, so it is sorta silly... should be more towards the front.
-The unit has limited height so be careful when ordering as some larger CPU cooler might not fit.

Other Thoughts: In all, great case. The side vent covers are easily removable to clean if need be. Pretty solid build. Good value.
-Take your time and plan out your build as it can be a tight space, but I have not had an issue. As I said above, the case is very compartmental so it can be modified or you can take things out to suit your needs/equipment

5 out of 5 eggsWorked very well for me

Pros: Good solid case. Whisper quiet with solid state drives installed. By far the most attractive case I even build. And for the price, it's a steal!

My build included: Creative Inspire T313 speakers, Gigabyte GeForce 9800 GT video, G.SKILL DDR3 1600 2 x 2gb RAM, LITE-ON optical drive, ASUS M4A79XTD EVO mother board (N82E16814125288) , AMD Athlon II X4 635 Propus CPU, Corsair CMPSU-400CX power supply (N82E16817139008), SNT drive caddy (N82E16817993014), and two OCZ Vertex Series SSD (N82E16820227393).

Cons: It was tight, but that was half the fun.

Other Thoughts: I build this system in 2010, and it is still running cool and quitet to this day.

The reason I wrote this review is because of the two previous reviwers bad mouthing this case. I believe their criticism is unjustified. This is a quality product, and my build went together with out any problem.

If your build doesn't go well, then take advantage of Newegg's return policy. It is the one of the main reasons I shop here.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Looking Case - No Room to Spare

Pros: Good Looking Case and Well Made. Front jacks are hidden but easily accessable. Great case for multiple SSD's. USB-3.0 ports in front are handy. Accommodation for 7 3.5 inch hard drives but ......

Cons: No room to spare! Can physically accommodate 7 hard drives but electrical and data connections would be virtually impossible. Long video cards and long power supplies are a problem. For a Standard ATX, the middle drive cage with one hard drive blocks two pci-e x 16 slots if you put a fan in that cage. Left drive cage (from the front) blocks video cards and power cables if you have more than one drive in it -- could probably do two but connections to Motherboard would be very, very difficult. It took 7 or 8 tries to get cables, motherboard connections and components in without pinching anything. I finally removed all but one SSD & one 2TB hard drive because it was just too tight. Cut fingers and knuckles twice before giving up and eliminating extra hard drives.

Other Thoughts: Follow instructions to the letter! Pre-plan all cable placements (in all directions), use a modular power supply and short cables where ever possible. Plan on multiple assembly tries before getting cables and components to fit right. Use screwdrivers with screw holders or plan on taking it apart to find a dropped screw. Cable placement and routing is crucial -- placing one cable in front of, over or under another is critcal to avoid frustration.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor layout and not great if you want a quiet media center/ HTPC

Pros: * Good looking and fits well with other audio/video components
* Deep so it can be placed under most A/V receivers
* Reasonable build quality

Cons: * Poor design for bottom vented power supplies - the opening on side of case is nothing close to the size or shape of a power supply that has the fan on the bottom
* No rubber isolation for drives or way to easily implement your own system due to poor drive carrier design.
* Tons of metal-to-metal surfaces that transfer vibration and noise from drives to case
* Non-quiet rear case fans.
* Useless features such as a fan mounting in front of the middle drive cage - useful only if you plan on removing the middle drive cage.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: This case is overpriced and a far cry from the intelligent layout present in some of their cases - like the GD05B. It is almost as if they figured, we will make it big so it holds more and that will be enough to make it good.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Case I Have Ever Purchased

Pros: - ONLY Pro is that it looks good and "blends in" well with most HT setups due to it's generic smooth face design. This one fact is the ONLY reason that I kept it and spent the day customizing it to make it work. Since there isn't enough room to fit all the CONS in the space allowed I will start them here:

- FALSE CLAIMS - Don't believe for one second the claims that you can fit all the drives they claim or any Power Supply you want! I built this latest system with an ASUS P8H77-M Pro Micro ATX board, EVGA GTX520 Ti Mid Sized Card, a "short" LG Blu-Ray drive, and an Antec Power Supply and had to HIGHLY customize this case with a die grinder and a drill to make TWO drives fit. They could have EASILY done so many things differently and not had the problems that they do with fitment... for instance, if they would have built the case 1 inch deeper (front to back) they would have solved most of the problems and allowed for a tremendous amount of fitment flexibility. CONTINUED...

Cons: OR they could have changed the way they mount the 2 - 3.5 inch drive bay covers on the left (facing case) drive holder in order to allow the top HD's to be mounted closer to the front of the case while still being behind the covers. OR they could have NOT put a USELESS fan mount in the center drive bay holder which would have allowed the center position drives to slide forward more (no way to fit a fan on it anyway so why have it?). OR they could have changed the center mount to allow you to remove the fan mount and slide the drives forward more (now they have lame tabs for the fan mount that stop the drives from sliding forward even after removing the mount). The far right HD mount is useless too because the MB is so close to the back of the drive you can't plug anything in since the drive is mounted at almost the same level as the MB in this location.
- HORRIBLE fastener quality! Three of the MB stand offs supplied were the wrong thread pitch; CONTINUED...

Other Thoughts: 2 of the screws in the bag had missing threads!
- MB Power connector and front panel USB 3 connector on MB can't be plugged in on MB because 5.25 in drive holder is in the way! Cut 1/2 in off the bottom and now it barely clears... shouldn't have had to do that.
- Front Cover "Damper" - if you close the cover too fast you will have to wait for the damper to "catch up" to you or when you let go of the cover it falls open again! If you close it then hold it closed for a few seconds until the mechanism "catches up" then it will stay closed. LAME.. to fix it I countersank a magnet in both sides now it snaps shut and stays there no matter how fast I close it... shouldn't have had to do that!
- No forethought - there is a rivet on the back wall centered above the first two expansion slot covers that prevents a double wide video card from sliding in easily.. I snipped it with tin snips about 1/8 in and then no problem.. shouldn't have had to do that!
- Lots more but no more room!
