Pros:

Size - Plenty of room to accommodate about any cooling setup.
My EVGA X-79 Dark EATX mb fit in it perfectly, proper standoffs were already in place.
My new Corsair H100i radiator and fans fit in the top perfectly, I put the two fans on top of chassis, with screws through the fans, then the chassis, and into the radiator. Had it installed in 10 minutes.
Hardware - Screws came in a nice box separated out by size for organization. Nice change from the bag with all screws mixed in.
Fan controller - fan cable headers - gives you plenty of connectors to hook case fans up to. Control fan speeds and led light colors, also on or off on lights, with the controller. Also there is a light on the back of the chassis for the IO panel, makes seeing it easy in a darkened room. Very nice feature.
200MM case fans, with filters for intake fans. Filter on bottom of case as well, easy to pull out for cleaning and put back in.

Cons:

My only real con was lack of " clear" explanation in the tiny print manual that was mostly pictures and little words to explain. I was overwhelmed with all the cables and connectors coming through the chassis as to what they were all for - they were tied together neatly, but it was just overwhelming to me. Finally after getting system set up , I realized all I had to do was plug a molex power connector from my power supply to the molex connector coming through the chassis, and voila had power for all my fans and fan controller. ( of course plugged the fans into those fan connectors coming through the chassis as well)...

Once I got playing around with the controller, realized pushing the led light button in toggles the lights on and off along with what zones are lit, along with the button on the case for controlling case fan speeds, it all came together for me. The manual could be much clearer on explaining all of that up front. This is really the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars.
