Pros: great design, good quality, extremely quiet. Fits a FULL sized video card. good wire routing options. dust covers on all air intakes. great air flow for cooling.
Cons: wire routing may take some thinking but lots of options.
Other Thoughts: This is a FANTASTIC case that can be used as a HTPC, or even a full on gaming rig. it has room for everything you need yet is small and silent.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When its working it works as well as expected with a clear image.
Cons: the slightest nudge causes the image to cut out. I'm guessing something is loose inside the housing. The problem is inside the adapter and not the hdmi connector because my laptop doesn't change it's display setting rather the image simply cuts in and out on the vga monitor from the slightest movements.
Other Thoughts: i'll be looking for a more reliable adapter as this is borderline garbage because it's so unreliable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fantastic build quality. plenty of space and tie down points for cable management. great use of space for fitting FULL sized graphics cards. VERY QUIET and all air intakes have dust covers (really wish more cases had them). this case has great air flow from the large front fan and without a ton of extra fans it really keeps the noise inside the system
Cons: my biggest complaint with this case is the MASSIVE usb3 header plug. this thing is ridiculously over sized and you must bend the cable at an obviously damaging angle if the connection is on the side of the motherboard and not the 'top' and you want it to go behind the drive cage that it will most likely be right next to or behind. Also you can't route larger cables around the mobo tray because the edge of the mobo tray has a pretty large lip that would pinch larger cables against the side panel. fortunately the tray has good sized cable routing holes.
Other Thoughts: I really wish the hdd cage was #1 tooless, and #2 could rotate. There is plenty of room in this case to turn the hard drive cage 90degrees. it might lower air flow but it would be a nice option. As is your going to run into serious wire routing issues with a loaded hard drive cage and any of the larger cpu coolers. even though the case comes with a 'kick stand' for supporting large cpu coolers I don't see them fitting next to regular hard drives loaded as well. this would be an ideal case for a self contained cpu water cooler with a 120mm radiator for the back fan position.READ FULL REVIEW
