Pros:

I like this case. It has a unique cube shape to it, and can fit all the same components as a mid-full size tower, yet still fit on your desktop easily. Also has a full size window on the left panel-the whole panel is a window.

Cons:

Where to begin...first the high airflow aspect is overstated. It only has slots for 5 fans including the single exhaust fan I jury-rigged the bottom HDD slots to accomodate 2 more fans, but those are the only 2 spots for 3.5"HDD's, the other compartment only has a 2.5" SSD cage. So really its no more roomy/airy than a regular case with the removable HDD cages removed. Second, the case only has two 5.25" drive bays for optical drive-and they are SIDEWAYS. Kinda annoying. Third, dont even CONSIDER this case for an open-loop water cooler. There is NOWHERE to put a pump and reservoir. Luckily I didnt need that feature.

Other Thoughts:

This case has a lot of woes, but it's still a decent case. If you need a case with a window and needs to fit on a desk (its only 17" long) yet still house a full ATX with 2 or more graphics cards and pretty much no size restrictions on internal components and want to show off all that beauty, this is the case for you . Outside those requirements, I would look for another case.
