Pros: Sleek design and curve is very subtle.
No dead or stuck pixels.
I have no major issue with BLB. All monitors have it, believe me I have owned a whole bunch over the years and this one is minimal. I currently also have 3 Asus VG248 monitors, this one replaced the center one and they also have some BLB but this one is very minimal.
Viewing angles are amazing.
I love the OC feature, only down side id you have to enable it. I would have thought they would have wrote it into firmware like others but you actually have to turn it on. Don't think some folks know this and have complained they do not get the 100hz. Also you do not get over 60hz with HDMI, people are having a hard time grasping that only DL DVI and Display Port are the only standards at this time on graphics cards that support over 60hz refresh rates.
The stand is amazing. I love the ROG logo glow, just wish I could change the color(not a fan of red) but will probably do some modding to get the green theme of my system.
Connections go in vertical which is a plus so they do not stick out the back of the monitor.
Vesa mountable is a plus since I do use mounts. I took it off the stand and have it on the Vesa mount currently until I can mod the desk stand the way I want.
Cons: Plastic cover for cables that pops on back? Not sure other than aesthetics but if your plugging and unplugging USB and headphones you will probably find this ending up in the junk drawer. It does look cool to hide the cable.
Base is monstrously large. I mean this is 34 inches wide but it is very deep and sitting on my desk which has a back and is 36 inches deep there is no room for my keyboard hence the reason I Vesa mount my monitors.
Buttons are hard to reach especially if you have a second monitor on the right side of this one. Better have long fingers if you want to enable the cross hairs, timers or FPS counter.
I am not taking eggs off for these cons. I find that this monitor is so sexy that I just sit back and stair at it. My wife tells me to quit drooling. lol
Other Thoughts: If you have the money go ahead and get this beast, you will not regret it. I went back and forth between this one and the Predator. Picked this one due to Asus. They have been good to me over the years and I did purchase a 4k Acer about a year ago and ended up selling it 3 months later. It was horrible for an at the time $600 monitor and bout my 3 VG2448's.
Hit me up on Twitter at d3fc0n1976 for any pics of this.
Oh, I am running this beast with SLI Gigabyte GTX1070 G1 Gaming with an Nvidia HB bridge. I play WoW, and runs it at 2k 140fps set at 10(ultimate) Even in large 20+raids and world events with 40+ folks.
Doom_Ultimate settings 2k (3440x1440) never dips below 60fos with Gsync. Around 80+without.
No Mans Sky_Maxed out 2k (3440x1440) 70fps.

Pros: Was exactly what I expected since I researched the heck out of this case.
It is so gorgeous. I will polish it every day to keep it looking sexy.
Has so much room in it. I Mounted a Kraken X61 in the top and you can turn it either way. It also will reach the front if you want to remove the 3 120mm fans and move them to the top. I put it in after I installed my Z170 MB and still had room to play with the config.
Plenty of room between MB tray and side panel to run all of my cables.
Can pop off top and front while working and not scratch them up.
I love the removable HDD cages. Removed all except the bottom to kind of hide some cables from my PSU.
Shows off my PNY SSD's nicely on top of the PSU cover.
Cons: Captive screws are a pain. Thought I was stripping/cross threading them when I removed the side panels. I drilled the side panels screw holes a little larger to make my side panels easier to remove. Did not hurt the finish.
Wish you could remove the side/power supply cover for better access. Didn't want to drill rivets out but I guess you could.
Other Thoughts: I love the lighting on this case. Is not too overpowering. I added a wireless controller color changing LED light strips to the bottom side of top panel to glow down and a second strip along the top edge of the removable top panel where the air vent is to give a green glow effect up there. I looks amazing. I am using the x61 and have it green along with my Gigabyte GTX1070 Gaming and Z170-Gaming MB to green as well.
Yes I am a Razer fan boy. I love all of their products. This is my second NZXT case and have used a few of their other products and neither have let me down.
I have an Orico 3.5 to 2.5 ssd mount that holds 4 SSD's that mounts perfectly to the 3.5 removable treys. I'm sure if you purchased 3 of these you could probably get about 15 ssd's in this case. I watched a vid on a web site where they drilled some holes in the treys and were able to mount 2 3.5 HDD's one on bottom, one on top and had 10 HDD's in it with minimal heat build up due to the case design.
I cranked the fans up to max on the MB in the BIOS and they were making kind of a vibration sound like a pulsing, set them back to auto, overclocked my I7 6700k to 4.6, ran a bunch of benchmarks (this was with all the covers off btw) and I never heard the fans. Cover installed and did the same test, no vibrations. Could hear my wife's PC from across the room over this one.
Pfff who needs 5 1/2 inch drive bays anyways? Cant remember the last time I put a DVD/CD in my PC......... Oh yah, when I bought Windows 7 when it launched. lol
Well there are you old school guys who still use front panel monitors for fans and temps. lol
BTW what's a floppy drive?
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Cons: Never got it.
Other Thoughts: Newegg forgot to put it in the box with my shipment, have not heard back from them yet. I used the Arctic Ceramique I had instead with my new I7 6700k and Kraken x61 cooler.
I know it works is why I gave it 5 eggs. Used it in the past.
