Pros: As stated in my previous review this case opens up modding possibillities. Remove the front and back slide clips from the side panels, leaving only the middle one and this case becomes a joy to work with.
Cons: connectivity cables are not sleeved, back panel needs 1/4 inch more room
Other Thoughts: I love this case so much. When I got it I loved the size but the bad collors of the interior components were a let down. The theme is blac/red but I prefer blue/black. This would make the Enermax GT the obvious choice but glad I did this case instead. The fan Hubs are great and can be moved to the back of the moterboard(the pcb's need insulating). I put two gelid wing 140's in the front and the pacle to mount UV cold cathod on the front side of the drive cage is perfect. I am snipping out the steel mesh infront of the fan mounts, it is an easy task, and will do the same on the top vent.. The rosewill included fan are very good but the red LED on them is not good at all. That could be because of visual obstuction or angle of the LED's I don't know but the antec 200 has a much more pleasing stock effect for fan LED and I consider that the low end of popular cases the Corsair 500R uses fan lighting to good effect but I can make this case look much better with a little effort, so much roomREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: low and pretty with blue mobos
Cons: none yet, except the price drop since purchase.
Other Thoughts: I hate gaudy memory heat sinks. These on a blue board like MSI of GIGABYTE look great.
I bought these for a gigabyte ud5 X79. I like blue much more than red and as I wanted to evaluate a low profile set for future builds these seemed a nice compomise. I haven't clocked them yet but was forced to set them at 1600 as the Giga X79 UD5 red them at 1866. During the install of raid 0 SSD to an X79 there are many things to contend with and I needed to eliminate the memory timing. G skill has really good memory modules as far as I can tell. Their binning process and markrting can be confusing. You can't go wrong buying there most popular stuff. In this case I wanted most popular with a different look. That cost more but in this build was worth it.
Pros: same, a bare shell that has endless possibilities
Cons: there was a con about the side panels that was well deserved, but here is an easy fix
Other Thoughts: this case comes from at least one other manufacturer, it is not a high quality case but as stated it is a blank canvas. The side panels are very difficult to affix. THERE IS A RESOLUTION to that which makes the case much more useful. Each panel has 6 slide locks on the top and bottom edges. buy clipping the 1 and 3 locks out the panels go on much better. The panel fit once mounted is not affected and affixing the panels is as easy as swing out style. Leave only the center (middle) slide lock after modding.READ FULL REVIEW
