Pros: Case looks good and the led lights are not to intense... just a nice soft glow. The case has good air flow and the fans included with the case are pretty quite. All the components mounting location were correct and the manufacturing is above average. Steel on the case is a nice thickness so it helps with the sturdiness of the build. The built in temp gauges for the CPU, HDD, and the System are nice if you like to know those things. Overall its a good case and I am happy with most of it, a few things that I would change but good overall.
Cons: I hate to say anything bad about this case because everything else is nicely done but...
The cable management on this case is non-existent and if you load it up with drives you will end up with a tangle of wire. You will be supplied with 2 zip tie mounts that you may mount to the side of the case to secure the wires but the mounts are only strong enough to hold the wire out of the way... not from managing cables. The front panel connects are poorly marked, after some careful examination of the wires from the front face i found a small arrow on the connect, which i assumed indicate was the power wire.
Other Thoughts: As stated the case is a great case, if you can get pass the wire mess that you end up with because there is no good way to route the cables. I will hold everything that an average builder could want, I will state that If you plan to run liquid cooling... this is not the case for you.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Clean, Modular, Haswell rated. PSU was under rated for Watts... tested at a little over 700.
Cons: Fan in the PSU is on the loud side, at about a 60 percent load... I was expecting it to take flight. Not very energy efficient, electric bill went up about 10 dollars a month after replacing a 400 watt seasonic.
Other Thoughts: Lasted 3 years, was a little disappointed by the life span. I may have to high of an expectation but, I figured I would get 5 years out of this PSU.READ FULL REVIEW
