ABS Canyon 695 4 x140mm Fan Multiple Heat Zones Aluminum Super Full Tower Computer Case
  • Multiple Heat Zones Design
  • 4 x 140mm Fans
  • 6 x Hot Swappable SATA HDD Tray Design

Pros:

High quality, separate heat zones. Someone said the 140mm fans were a con because of the limited selections but there are getting to be more and more available. I routinely put 140s in the tops of Cosmos cases I mod.

Cons:

First and foremost, overly expensive. Very tall and not very deep although the depth is less of an issue do to it's odd design. Strange sideways mounting optical/floppy bays and height which I found make it prone to tipping if you aren't careful about how you deal with opening/closing. Also the position of these make most users have to rethink how and where their case is laid out. 80mm fans. No bleeding edge case today should make use of noisy 80mm fans. Sure you can make them quiet by limiting their speed but that limits cooling. The drive bay should have one 120mm exhaust instead. The drive bay includes a hotswapable backplane but considering you need to remove a side panel to get to the drives this is really just a gimic and not very practical.

Other Thoughts:

I got one of these cases for a build for a customer that insisted he wanted one. After a week with the case he's telling me he should have listened to me. The design has great potential but it needs serious work. My personal opinion is it should be wider, include more optical bays and they should face forward and since it has a hotswapable drive backplane it should have externally swapable drive sleds, especially for a case at this amount of money. Bottom line, it's cool, but it's overpriced (a lot) and most certainly has some glaring flaws.
