3 out of 5 eggsMixed bag

Pros: Large fans are quite. Large interior room fits Extended ATX form factor. Includes over ten drive rails which makes hard drive, floppy, and cd-rom installation a snap.

Cons: I was looking for a quite case for a massive workstation. While this case works, it might be better suited for a non-case moding gamer with an ATX sized board.
Overall the case is made of cheep feeling plastic and popriveted sheet metal panels. A few non-deployed poprivets where rolling around in the empty case when it arrived. The see-through side panel and led lights are a turnoff for me.
The plastic “utility box” had to go, it blocked half of the air from the front fan. The front fan is 250 mm but the hole the air goes in was made for a 120 mm fan. Had to break off the glued in cable ties to mount an Extended ATX board. None of the mounting holes are marked for an Extended ATX board making mounting a challenge. Also the screw hole in the bottom front of the case is off by 1 mm to properly support an Extended ATX board.

Other Thoughts: The 250 mm fans are quite. I wish there were more professional looking choices with something that mounts an Extended ATX form factor with the 250 mm fans.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's German, but it's not a Mercedes

Pros: This case is well constructed with a few design flaws. All inside edges are rounded, and there is plenty of room inside for installation. The 25cm (250mm) side fan does not interfere with Video card or CPU heat sink heights. I have one of the Artic Cooler Freezer Pro 7s and two XFX 7600GT (XXX) cards installed and still have about 2 or 3 inches between them and the side fan. However the side fan blows a lot of cool air (and potentially dust [gonna need a custom filter]) right on to them, it’s a good thing (except for the dust). Also I feel this design gives my passive cooling components on the mobo that needed air flow. Great cooling (except where noted below) over all I am very satisfied. Extremely quiet, almost inaudible even with both 25cm fans on high.

Cons: The front fan is a 25CM (250mm) fan however; the inner case frame is manufactured as a universal design. There is a "basket" for mounting a 120MM fan right between the hard drive cage and the front fan. This "basket" probably blocks a lot (say 60%) of the air flow from the front fan. I have 2 400GB Seagates mounted in the cage with one open drive bay between them, it keeps them cool, but this could have been so much better. The Drive mounting system is literally a snap, although the CD-Rom brackets have screw holes in addition to the metal “pins”, but CD/DVD drives are loose when slid into place and can create vibration issues. Had use a little shim around them to keep them nice and still. Being a steel case, all of the drive cages and support brackets are riveted, making MODs to the case a little more difficult (Like pulling out that crazy 120mm fan basket). Just wish they would have taken the "basket" out for this model.

Other Thoughts: For around a $100 this is a great full tower case (it says mid tower, but check the dimensions). I am blown away by how quiet these fans our, and even without a rear 120mm fan you can feel exhausted air up to 3 feet behind the case. It’s moving some air in there. It is impressive looking, and the window allows for a full view, from PSU to speaker pins, of the more expensive insides. It comes with everything you need to install a mother board, including wire ties. One of the really cool things included in the bag-o-parts is a small plastic PC speaker. I was prepared to rip a cone speaker out of an older case, but was pleasantly surprised to see this little addition. This is by no means a light case, but not exactly a server case brick either, but given its size… I’d say this one isn’t for you LAN party guys.
