Pros: Totally silent. Works great with the Corsair Carbide 330R case.
Totally modular cabling gives you a very clean build.
Nice fit and finish.
Cables were plenty long to route along the back of my full-size ATX case.
Cons: It would be even better if there were a way for the various cables to be more flexible - more "Apple-like".
Other Thoughts: I'm not overclocking, so can't comment on how clean or stable the power is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price, nice fit and finish, has been running fine through multiple benchmark tests in the past 24 hours.
Cons: Not a name brand that you can brag about. Or maybe that's a pro?
Other Thoughts: Thanks to other reviewers, I knew I would probably have to tell my motherboard (Gigabyte GA-Z78X-D3H) to change the timing to 1600 rather than the default 1333. Sure enough, when I booted, the memory was set to 1333. I changed it to 1600 and was good to go.
I'm otherwise not overclocking, so can't comment on OC potential.
Pros: Excellent fit and finish. (I noticed the few problems listed in the Cons only because the rest of the case is so well made)
Very quiet. My stock i7-4771 setup is quieter than the ceiling fan in the room I'm in.
Surprisingly light. My computer is in an awkward position for me to lift, so I was pleasantly surprised at its light weight compared to my 10-year-old case.
The little removable hard drive holders fit and work well.
Tons of holes to route cables through, so you can hide them on the right side of the case out of the way of the airflow.
The dust guard on the bottom of the case is held on with magnets, making it very easy to clean and replace.
Clean lines with no windows or anything glowing except for the white LED on the on/off switch. Matte plastic finish on the outside seems tough and doesn't show fingerprints.
I don't have any internal optical drives, so I can't comment on the optical drive bays.
Cons: I'm taking off one egg due to three minor issues:
1. I thought I had to RMA it due to what appeared to be a faulty on/off switch. It's a clicky (membrane style?) switch, and the click is around 1mm. There was something wrong with the alignment, so the switch would click "in" but not come out cleanly, leading to random reboots. I found that opening the front door and flexing the plastic chassis around the switch seemed to bend something into place, and it now seems to work OK.
2. The cable for the front-panel audio is about two inches too short. My Gigabyte GA-Z78X-D3H motherboard's audio connector is in the bottom left corner, and there's not enough cable to route it as cleanly as I would like.
3. With all the cables being routed on the right side of the case, there's not enough room to comfortably slide the right side panel on without a lot of trial and error. It's like trying to zip up an overfilled suitcase.
Other Thoughts: I love this case. The cons I listed are all very minor, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this case to someone who wants a quiet, well-made case with lots of room.READ FULL REVIEW
