Pros: Was able to fit the H110i 280mm cooler in by mounting using top back location and putting the fan on top with the radiator inside. Turned the included top case fan over and moved it to the top front position as an intake. Used the other H110i fan as the back case exhaust. Keeps my I5 6600K cool at any speed with case fan speed set to low. The heat spreaders and CPU power connector on the MSI Z170A M7 interfered with mounting both the fans and radiator inside. Wasn't able to mount the radiator outside because I would have had to clearance the case for the radiator hoses. The included fans are quiet and move decent amounts of air. Has a nice amount of ports. The case is roomy and sturdy.
Cons: Didn't really like the drive bay block offs. They kept falling out while I was putting the system together. Turned out not to be a big deal because that area rarely gets disturbed in use. Mostly just the card reader with the 3.5" adapter cover that fits a little tighter. The 5.25" bay drive holders didn't secure my LITE-ON optical drive very well so it needed a full set of screws on the other side, the ASUS one was ok.
Other Thoughts: Wish the sound ports were mounted on the front in a low position. I knew that going in so it's not really a con.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Cheap 4 wire CPU fan that does it's job.
Cons: Had to drill out the mounting holes on one side so I could get a screwdriver in to tighten the screws to the heat sink. It's plastic so no big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
