Sometimes, even in a world of ever smaller components, size does matter. If your workhorse computer needs to be a Clydesdale, then one of those Shetland pony mid-sized towers just won't do, and Gigabyte knows that.

Three self-illuminated fans (one 120mm front panel and two 120mm rear panel) help keep it cool, as do the interchangeable transparent acrylic/steel mesh ventilation side panels. And everything is designed to make assembly faster and easier for your technical staff (or you, if you build your own): one-touch lockable latch on the detachable side panel, tool-less device assembly, seven hassle-free expansion slots, and front and side panel locks offer physical security. Compatible with ATX and microATX motherboards, with plenty of drive space. It's pre-modified to allow you to upgrade to liquid cooling, too.

Got some heavy-duty work ahead of you? Then maybe this heavy-duty workhorse is what you need. Check it out for yourself!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case

Pros: Very roomy, no sharp edges on any of the metal, mesh side panel for great airflow, feels very sturdy. Overall a very well designed and built case.

Cons: Panels can vibrate and can make a lot of noise depending on current RPMs of CPU/Case fans if air cooling.

Other Thoughts: I won't dock an egg for the vibration noise because I really believe this case was designed with water cooling in mind, and it's a problem that can be solved with a trip to the hardware store; however, it would have been nice if the panels came with some rubber foam padding pre-installed.

I have used this case as my main computer since I bought it in 2007, and if it weren't discontinued I would still wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case Ever... Still Using It

Pros: Solid, gorgeous, terrific space inside, mostly tool-less, comes with enough drive rails, lots of love put into this case. Comes with either acrylic or mesh door - who provides this many awesome options?

Cons: Fan option on side would have been a nice option. Big metal door is either a pro or a con but can be removed.

Other Thoughts: You've read all the cons I could think of after owning this case for a while. It's easily the best case I've ever had. if you really want a side fan, it's not so difficult to do a custom install.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome with slight modifications

Pros: Excellent case with a good study front door. The case is indeed massive, which I enjoy the most as it allows a great deal of handiwork to be done inside if need be without feeling cramped. Make sure to utilize the holes in the backplate near the motherboard for your wire management as it will lower your temps.

Cons: As others have mentioned, the supplied fans are very weak, and oddly there's really no additional places for fans...the three spots are really all you get for this massive case. Luckily however, due to it's sheer size with about 10 bucks and a little ingenuity you can get a significant performance increase. More on that below.

Other Thoughts: If you want to increase your air flow but don't want to cast away the low RPM LED fans that came with the case, you can do what I did. First I removed the toolbox. Then I snagged 2 Yate Loon High Speed fans ($3.99) and some industrial grade velcro strips with a sticky back. I put 1 fan on the inside grill near the HD area with the velcro (where the big vent holes are) helping to move air brought in by the front fan. Immediately this dropped my CPU temps by 3c and my GPU temps by an impressive 8-10c. I drilled several small holes (neatly in a pattern) through the clear plexi window and put a second intake fan right there on the inside, dropping the CPU temp by another 2c and the GPU temp by another 5c. Note: You don't have to drill the plexi like I did, you could just install the fan on the mesh side panel, but I like using the plexi as it's easier to see the insides and it lets less dust in.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good case

Pros: pretty roomy for your drives, easy install, good cooling copaciy with room for liquid cooling is a bonus.

Cons: the bracket with the box to hold the cables in is a little bit in the way, especially if you are using a gtx 200 series gpu. Very tight squeeze to get my 285 into the PCIe slot on my asus p6t.

Other Thoughts: some people think its flimsy but i don't if you managed to dent this case then you are abusing it and need to take better care of your belongings.

I loved this case on Newegg, to bad they wanted 60 to ship to a APO. I went out locally and got for 45BD (119.37USD) and didnt have to wait 2 weeks. Shame on Newegg for inflating there shipping cost, but in the long run it saved me 50.00 not counting the wait. I bought all but the case and vid cards from newegg, after seeing local prices and the 300% raise in shipping cost newegg charged, i think im going to quit doing business with them, i'm sorry to say. still it is a AWSOME case

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case...

Pros: I love this case. Extremely spacious and very mod friendly. It looks fantastic, and I love the ports for the coolant pipes.

Cons: None that I worry about. Please understand that this is a huge case, so if space is a concern, you might want to take some measurements beforehand. Personally, I love it, as it makes it very nice to work on since you have plenty of room to move around in there.

Other Thoughts: I also picked up Gigabyte's liquid cooling kit, and as expected, it was very easy to install in this case as they were made for each other.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Beautiful spacious tower. Plenty of room for anything you could ever want to put in your box. Fit my Gforce 8800GTX with about 5 inches of space between the end of the card and the hard drive cages!! Very easy to cable to your board and a very solid design. Also runs very cool with the 3 12cm fans!!

Cons: Finding desk space for this monster to sit on!!!

Other Thoughts: But it and build it :))

4 out of 5 eggsNice buy

Pros: Size. Tons of room on the inside. I've got 2 8800GT OC cards with plenty of room to spare. Very easy to hide cables and wires for a nice looking clean rig.

Cons: The fans don't move enough air. Specifically the front intake fan. I've got 3 HDs and if I didn't replace the fans they would have overheated by now. Between the low cfm fan, the heat of 3 drives and the 2 graphics cards blowing hot air toward the HDs, things got hot quick.

Other Thoughts: I definitely underestimated the size this things takes up on my floor. You could probably use it as a table. It is surprisingly light for something so big. I think this thing could last me forever so I'd say I'd buy it again but I'm pretty sure I won't have to.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SPACIOUS!!

Pros: Extended 10% body, functional locks, Simple but beautiful that doesn't blind you. WHISPER FANS at 1000 rpm. COMPLETELY TOOL LESS other cases need screws installed on drives to become tool less this doesn't need anything at all. Intake fan filter that actually works and FILTERS out dust and other stuff. LIGHTER than any steel full sized tower out there, wonderful wonderful front magnet strength for front door that hides 5 5.25 expansion bays and it even cover up items such as if you own a sound blaster audiology with front 5.25 knobs panel it cover up that well without squashing any buttons or knobs The DYI Front Projector Panel is a bonus also and the steel inside case are rolled to minimize finger cuts as well.

Cons: BIGG!!!!! I'm serious i was surprised to find the box on my sidewalk when it arrived and it went all way up to my waist but that is just the box, case is slightly shorter. Takes two arm to carry around. One of holes to screw in motherboard standoff was partially stripped so i just pulled out the telfon tape plumbers use for pipes and ripped a ribbon then twisted it into a string and wrapped around the threads of stand off and then screw it in and it stays snug and well

Other Thoughts: Only if these three 120mm fans would come without leds or be able to turn off the lights then i am happier camper, The projector tab is S0 AWESOME!! I made a label with my name so i can display and brag about who built the rig that looks great but not overdone. Its ready for any future water cooling plans as well.
