dont know what to say
Pros: The case has plenty of space. looks nice.
Cons: I found cable routing difficult. The biggest problems is the front fan doesnt work and there is no manual.
Other Thoughts: Actually I'm sorry I bought it just because of the fan issue. In the first and only review for this case, the reviewer mentioned that the fan did not work for him either. I was hoping that I wouldnt have the same issue. Unfortunately I did. This really stinks!!!

Pros: Nice Room inside. The 2 large fans should be quiet (more on this in a sec). The entire case (inside and out) is back. My hands haven't found any sharp edges yet. The 5" slots are tool less, but the 3.5 "carriers" do requires screws. The HDs are mounted each in their own "carriers". And each of these interlock and then screw to the case. Kind of interesting, once you figure it out. There is even room for a fan in between each HD. Pretty good cooling potential. The front fan has the connector to plug into the MB, but the back just has a Molex connector.
Cons: No manual/cd/documentation of any kind. I took a little while to figure out the functionality that was intended for the HDs. The big problem with mine though is that the front 120mm Blue LED fan isn't working. Only 2 LEDs light up (out of four) and the fan doesn't turn. I really don't want to have to return the whole case for this one fan.. Newegg support was able to give me a phone number to call, but it was a wrong number. So I guess I will wind up just buying another fan to put in front. The time it would take to break it back down and pack it up is worth more than the $8 for a new fan.
