Very solid and well designed case 11/13/2013
Very spacious case. More than enough room for anything in this case. You can put a 120mm width water cooling system in it on the top of the case. This case is very well ventilated. It is very clean inside, there are no sharp edges and cable management is very easy.
The only thing, because everyone can find something to complain about, it the placement of the power, reset and external USB ports. Being on the top is real handy to access them form sitting down, but I have kids, and one spilled a drink on the buttons, so now, my reset button is stuck on, so I had to disconnect it. Also, one of the kids somehow got hung up in a USB cable which was attached, and destroyed one of the USB ports (which BTW, they seem to be a little flimsy anyhow, USB devices don't make great connection in them because they loosen up, because the metal they are made of is very flexible.) Anyhow, I know they shouldn't have had drinks, or should have paid closer attention to cables, but it these things were on the font panel instead of the top edge, they would have had a better chance at survival. The panel that access the cables (right side) is kind of a pain to get on when you have a lot of cables running through there. Also, the CPU power cables are usually not quite long enough to reach the connector on my MB (it does reach, but it is stretched to the limit.) Be aware that it is quite a distance from the PS to the CPU power on many MBs.
Definitely the best case I have owned. I don't spend a lot of money on cases, I usually get the ones that are around $20, but splurged for this one and I am very happy I did. Of course I do drool over the several hundred dollar cases that are out there, but this case is a real nice happy medium for affordability and features. I would have been nice if the side panels were on hinges, but that's ok.
