5 out of 5 eggsGreat Designed and Built Case

Pros: This is the best case I have ever worked with, while its kind of expensive and heavy I had no problem assemling all of my components into it. The front panel connectors were also better than most.

Cons: None so Far, although I wish is was a little less expensive but I plan on keeping around for a long time.

Other Thoughts: I coupled this case with a Coolmax modular power supply (CUG Series) and wiring it up was easy and resulted in a very clean install with great air flow.

I did remove the hard drive assembly, the screws were tight but with the right tools did come right out without stripping. That openned up a lot of space and improved airflow. I mounted my two hard drives in the forward 5-1/4 mounts using adapter rails, along with two DVD Drives. I did have to play with the side cover to get the back component panel to line up better, this was done by just loosening the screws and sliding the side panel down slightly.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing case but overpriced

Pros: Having no PSU rail really made a difference. At first I thought it was going to be a problem because there's only a half inch lip to support it but there was no play whatsoever which was comforting. And I love the hard drive cage in this thing, especially the rubber dampeners around the rollers. Everything else was pretty easy and the removable side panel helped out a lot with the wire management.

Cons: A bit overpriced, I was lucky to get it at $200. While you can really see and feel the quality of the material, I'm afraid I wouldn't pay any more than $250. Especially since it doesn't come with a power supply.

Other Thoughts: I've never worked with a Zalman case before but this was the smoothest build I've done. The case is very easy to work and made wire management a breeze. Straight out of the box this thing is a big boy weighing almost 30lbs empty, so you can feel that it's solid all throughout. This could probably break a toe if it fell on you lol. Assuming the PC architecture doesn't go through any major changes, this will probably be the last case I buy for a very long time.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Engineering

Pros: Extremely well built and solid case. Thick black anodized aluminum walls make for a quiet case operation. Rubber Hard drive holders for reduced vibration. Everything you want and need in a case, this will provide for you. This will probably be one of the last cases I ever buy.

Cons: Cost, but worth every penny

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET CASE!!!

Pros: Very solid case, I love the way it looks and the set up is very user friendly also. Cables are easy to route in case and cd drive access was also easy.

Cons: A little tight in spots, but the quality of the case makes that a minor problem.

Other Thoughts: well worth the money you pay for it, this is my third case and i'm very impressed with it. I also bought a zalman cpu cooler and ram cooler. runs very smooth!!

5 out of 5 eggsZalman GT 1000

Pros: I have three words: O M G!!!!!! What a piece of art this thing is. It is everything you would expect for the price. Although, it could be $50 to $75 cheaper but whata ya gonna do!!!

Cons: Can't think of, or see any.

Other Thoughts: If you're not in the market for a mid tower, then this is not the right case for you. I am going to integrate a complete water cooling system. I am fortunate that I have a milling machine and a lathe in my garage so I will be customizing this beauty and really make an art piece out of it. I will post pics when complete for those that are interested.

5 out of 5 eggsbest computer case in the market

Pros: very sturdy aluminum, can detach mobo plate, support up to six 3.5 internal HDD, slightly bigger and fatter than other mid towers for more room,

Cons: extremely heavy, very expensive, but it's an investment for the long run

5 out of 5 eggsZalman GT1000

Pros: Very nice computer case, very well constructed. Best case out there for my build. Too small for liquid cooling, and more than 2 gpu's. Build finish is perfect, that's why I picked it. Everything comes apart easily. Hope to use it on many builds.

Cons: I switched out the fans, and switching the front ones took a bit of work, but I got it done. I hope it will holds my Corsair 1000HX-1000W power supply, there is just a small lip at the back and the PSU is a beast. It would have been nice to have a lip on the back plate as well. But I don't think that would work because that's where the mother board is attached to.

5 out of 5 eggsCoolest Case Out There

Pros: I think is one of the best cases made, if not the best. A very
well made product, quality! Everything fits and is very easy to get at, as promised. I will say I love the look of it, but I really bought it because of it's quality. I will be using this case for a long time, many builds.

Cons: Case is too small for a really big configuration. I use two SLI video cards, 2 hard drives, a blue ray burner and a DVD burner. I don't think I would use it for 3 SLI cards, you would probably want more cooling. Though I would go to liquid cooling and ZALMAN'S case for that.

Other Thoughts: If you have the money get a really good case, don't skimp on the case.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth The Money

Pros: I wanted a case that was both sexy and awesome, and this case has both and more. Looked at many cases and read just as many reviews. Nothing really struck my interest untill I found this beast. I haven't built a new machine in 6 years so I don't have much experience with anything else, but I'm glad I don't because I wouldn't want anything else after having this case. Yeah its pricey but you get your moneys' worth for sure. This case is so stout its crazy. Very nice looking inside and out, the brushed aluminum is very appealing. Wire Management is a breeze, plenty of room inside to work with. Easy access on both sides of case with hinged doors. I love the fact there's no PSU bridge to have to look at through the window, and the lip and screws that holds the PSU is more than enough to hold it in place, dont ever see it being a problem. Can't even hear the 120mm fan in the back, 92mm's in front might be loud to some people but not me. Plus the red LED's are wicked cool too.

Cons: Non that I can think of. You will love this case, belive me.

Other Thoughts: The case is heavy, only because it is so solidly built. So don't plan on carrying this case everywhere you go (about 35lbs with everything installed). I seriously can't explain how cool this case is. I don't foresee myself ever getting another case, it should last forever! And if I do build a 2nd PC, it will have the GT-1000. This isn't your run of the mill case, it's an investment.
