Cons: fan leads are a little short to reach my mainboard but nothing a little solder wont fix

4 out of 5 eggsA silver beauty, Power Button problem

Pros: Very nice looking, solid build-no flexing panels here. Slide in MOBO tray was a great help in install process. Front door is thick aluminum and blue LED's are very nice on front fan and pwr/HDD LED's.

Cons: All was assembled and everything connected when power button began sticking, it worsened to point of intermittently functioning. Thought of RMA case back and removing parts is upsetting. Noted another with power button sticking here too, seems to be a weakness. Button is tilted and catches it seems once depressed. Installing PSU was a bit difficult as lip of support structure for this blocked cables a bit but with a lot of adj i got it in there. Didnt want to take a dremel and modify or cut.

Other Thoughts: Power button has some plastic insert or better spring (dont know exactly what problem is) to eliminate the CON above. Might consider a Coolermaster Aluminum case as no complaints, good quality alum cases there too.

5 out of 5 eggsA WORK OF ART

Pros: This one is a work of art. Beautiful in design,everything fits to perfection like a precision made watch. Very easy to work inside,even the finish on the screws is great,with four fans and all aluminum there are no cooling problems, don't need all the fans,you can hear it run but it is smooth and quiet. Quality through out. The only way it could be better is to be cheaper but you won't mind the $$ once you see it. I don't work for ABS.

Cons: NONE. The power switch stuck a little but this was so minor it was not a problem.

Other Thoughts: I would definately buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Pass This Up

Pros: This case is a must! Solid and well constructed. No sharp edges and the fans are silent. All the drives fit in the bays with no side slop.
The slide out motherboard tray is a big plus especially when you have to install those motherboard screws near the back edges. Ventilation is great and the front 120mm fan keeps those SATA's cool. Thumbscrews a big plus.
Would by another one without any second thoughts.

Cons: Not a screwless case but with both side panels off you have full access to all mounting slots.
Only problem I encountered was the side vent pipe was slightly offset of the CPU but this could be due to the mobo mfg's placement of the socket and not the case's fault.

Other Thoughts: This case falls under the gaming case catagory but would easily fit into an executive's office. It's that elegant looking.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very well built, solid feel, extremly quiet. Others have said it...not a toolless design but I too prefer that.

Cons: Fan plugs could be longer.

Other Thoughts: I looked around for a while for a good looking, well built, reasonably priced case. This is it.

5 out of 5 eggsCase-gasm

Pros: I'm so happy with my purchase. This case is solid and oh-so-beautiful. 5 fans running in this thing are very quiet. Very nice cooling on this case. The removable mobo tray is a dream. I love it. This case is not a tooless design, but I prefer that. I like the feeling that my components are solidly held in place. I had a blast putting this thing together. All-in-all a very nice, solid case. I don't regret one single penny I spent on this.

Cons: The rear panel has the two 80mm fans, but no rear vent where the SLI cars sit. A rear vent would have been nice there. There's no need to do what I did, but I'm a freak when it comes to things like this...I installed an 80mm fan on the bottom of the case. Doing so accomplished what "I" was looking for, but like I said earlier, it's not neccessary and it shouldn't deter you from buying this case.

Other Thoughts: I have multiple Raptor HD's and the fit for each drive was suprisingly tight. Made me a little nervous because I had to push them more forcefully than I would like. But then, I loosened the screws on the first drive I installed and left all screws loose as I installed each drive. They went in smoothly. The screws being tightened were pulling the housing in. Derrrr. If you have multiple HD's I suggest you do the same.

5 out of 5 eggsSo pretty!!

Pros: It has a motherboard tray. The front "mesh metal" has filters throughout. Plenty of fan filters, 2 120mm slots. The 5.25 bays are completely interchangable (no popping a metal piece out that can never go back in). It's so sleek and it's nice and heavy so no worries about it flying off anything (dunno how that would happen but still...)

Cons: It's heavy (pro and con). I'm not entirely sure how to change out the front 120mm fan. I feel like if I pull too hard on the mesh metal part I'm going to break something...

Other Thoughts: It's SUCH a nice case. I was looking for a while for the perfect case and I definitely found the one for me. Side note: case shipped at 23lbs.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: More than enough space- I have an 8800GTS that fit with no problem. The GTX would also fit, as the GTS had more than an inch to spare. This case is pretty deep, which is a good thing when it comes to fitting everything in. Seems to have plenty of cooling, especially with a Zalman 9500 (correctly oriented, of course). Construction is solid- I really like the removable mobo tray and the all-aluminum front door. Beautiful, as well. The blue LED at the bottom spills out the sides when the front door is closed. Also, the black mesh drive covers are nice, especially with black-bezeled drives. The power button is accessible without having to open the door, and the right side case is also removable to facilitate drive installation (Common, I know, but I've actually seen cases where that's not true).

Cons: Nitpicks only. The PSU install was very tight- my 750W Thermaltake scraped against the left and right side, and required some force to get it in. It being a modular PSU helped, as said in another review, since I could install it with only 2 cables permanently attached before finding optimal slots to put in the optional cables. The power button can get stuck down (it's kind of loose, and you can wedge it under its bezel when it's all the way down). Lastly, the air guide on the side vent is huge. Major interference with the Zalman CPU cooler. You can remove the guide, but the decorative trim and mesh are held with screws which seat into the guide. Good news is that in the pile of screws that come with the case are some plastic nuts and screws that fit them, so you can put the trim and mesh back in without having the air guide in place.

Other Thoughts: Great case, highly recommended. Wide enough for a socket AM2 mobo with AMD FX-62 and Zalman 9500 cooler, and deep enough for an 8800GTS (GTX, too, judging by the amount of extra space).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat looking case & Lightweight!

Pros: The silver, aluminum casing is lightweight and an attractive case to hold all of your computer hardware. I like the way the motherboard tray slides out and provides the option to install outside of the case as opposed to setting a non-sliding partition holding motherboard to the casing which would require bolting the MOBO to the interior wall of the case and samll, skilled hands not to mention a flashlite to accomplish a proper fitting. Well worth the extra money it cost.

Cons: Adding this Power Supply Unit should have been a snap, but took nearly an hour due to the way the PSU area's housing pushes up against the many power cables of the PSU. I have an 850W Coolermaster with tons of cables, enough for 4 PCI-express VGA cards (maybe that's part of it). However, a modular PSU with removable cables would have solved this problem. When I attempted to carefully lift and move the PSU to fit flush into the "easy PSU back slide-in compartment," the mound of cables on the far right side (as you look in to the case) were scraping up against this aluminum lip so tightly I became concerned about electrical problems. No exaggeration here when I tell you I broke in to a sweat trying to align the PSU flush with the back of the case so I could screw in all 4 screws to contain it! Too bad ABS didnt consider this challenge when designing this housing. Scratched up the cables hitting this enough to be concerned that if the wire sleeving was cut, I'd have serious problems.

Other Thoughts: I wouldnt let this experience deter you from buying. Just select a PSU with a good cable system (keeps the case cooler too). It is a gorgeous case and liteweight too! This is my first build too so possibly a more experienced person would have troubleshooted better..hope this helps others.
