I highly recommend this tower! This case has great construct, easy to use features, and looks great! It has great cable routing, tool-less bays, thumbscrews for the PCI ports, SATA dock, and more. I love the forward system buttons, audio jacks, and USB ports being on the top of the case which makes them less "shiny" to my 3 year old. The well thought out construction, bottom mount PSU, and clean wire routing keeps this case nice and cool.
The only problem I found with this is on an optional piece. The VGA bracket is capable of housing an 80mm fan. YAY video card cooling... just not with the side panels that come with this unit. That transparent green NVidia logo is pretty, but because of it there are no ventilation holes. So the bracket really only assists with fighting gravity unless you buy a different panel from CM.
I also purchased a ZALMAN CNPS9900 NT 120mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler to match this case. The unit is near silent when running and the Green LED gives the hole case a dim mysterious glow effect. If you want a bright case, grab some new fans or cathodes or LEDs. The ONLY thing that lights up on this case is the forward inlet fan that is Green when lit (there is a toggle switch by the power button if you don't want it lit up at night).
