3 out of 5 eggsGreat IDEA, poor placement for cables

Pros: It works. It's made with high quality plastic and cables. It's simple to install. It includes the needed screws and a little instruction leaflet. Ports work as expected.

Cons: Sigh... I have an R3 case. The opening where the previous USB2 cables came out of were above the top 5 1/4" drive bay. However, the cables for this upgrade kit extend to the SIDE. In the R3, there are no standard holes where the USB3 connected can fit without drilling. While normally flat cables would be preferable, because of this issue, you have to bend the cables severely to get them to route to the top slot. While the cables do not break, it does cause pressure on the front cause cover.

Other Thoughts: I brag to all my friends about Fractal design how well thought out their cases are... but this issue with the cables makes no sense. Poor design by a company called Fractal design.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Easy to use design.
Well built.
Comes with the USB 3.0 stock so no need for the upgrade kit.
Good sound dampening design.

Cons: Little Heavy

Other Thoughts: Bought for a friend as a gift. He loves it. Hakes him room quieter.
