Pros: These things are awesome. Makes cable management look good from your window.
Cons: Just wanted to add a con that the connectors go up with respect to the bulky connector. So for those like me who think that the connector will hang down, nope. It sits in top. But like Wired said it's easy to hide this.
Also if you have a "4 in 3" HDD set up, the wires between the connectors have to be squished just a little.
Pros: First off I LOVE this case. Huge for almost any motherboard, water cooling in all flavors and HDD's galore. Perfect for my home server.
Cons: Only comes with 2 "4 in 3 HDD" cages.
Sheer lack of customer service.
Other Thoughts: The one star is for sheer lack of customer service. I simply want 2 more "4 in 3 HDD" cages that are needed for my home server build. Xigmatek doesn't seem to sell the cages on their own so I'm left out in the dark about how I can get more of them.
A while ago I had previously purchased the Xigmatek "4 in 3" cages with the orange blade, but they don't really fit in this case. The cages that come with the case are easier to work with and also line up differently then the orange bladed, standalone ones.
I emailed 3 different times and called Xigmatek 3 different times, left 3 different messages ranging from "hey I would love to give you more of my money for some more HDD cages" to "my cages are damaged and I need replacements" (I lied to see if they would simply return a freakin phone call/email) I'm still without those needed cages and having my HDDs sit idly by.
Saw another person on selling this case on 'free'-bay without the 2 cages because he wanted the same thing I did, but he went overboard and decided to buy 2 ases and try and sell the one without the HDD cages. Thanks Xigmatek.
Pros: Just what i needed to round out my cable management. Good quality and nice and long for big cases.
Cons: People are stupid and can't read product descriptions nor use their eyes to look at product pictures.
Other Thoughts: I can't seem to wrap my head around other reviewers and the whole buyer remorse/impulse buying where they are not happy with it becuase they failed to slow down and think. Make sure you want 2 right angles - DUH! Make sure you dang motherboard can accomidate these in nicely - DER!
I only use these on 2 of 8 SATA slots becuase:
1. If used on the top slot it will block the bottom one
2. The other 2 bottom SATA slots are too far from the grommet hole.
