Pros: Has basically every possible power connector (including the pcix 8 pin for the video card so we didn't have to use the 2 6 pin to 8 pin).
Cons: Has almost too many cables, if they were modular and you could only select the ones you needed it would be great. Ended up having to stuff half of them into unused hard drive bays (only had SSD and video card).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IN WIN Dragon Slayer Black 0.6mm SECC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Quiet fans, sturdy, posts weren't necessary for our mobo (ASRock B75M-GL R2.0) and that was nice. Seems to have good ventilation (I like the mesh side). Looks nice. Tool-less pci slots work well but for our videocard (nvidia gtx760)
Cons: LED on the front with logo is kind of bright, will probably disconnect at some point.
Doesn't have mobo headers for USB3 port on front panel, only has a normal USB cable that you have to run out the back (for which there are holes in the back) to plug into the rear usb3 port.
Not a lot of room to run power cables to our mobo because it is near the top of the case but cabling was still doable.
Mounting the SSD in the 2.5'' slot was odd, it ended up fitting at an angle (which I assumed was to leave space behind for air to move)
Pros: Well laid out, even with a large video card (GTX760) most plugs were still reasonably accessible. Fit well in the case (In Win Dragon Slayer).
Cons: Hard to unseat ram when the video card is plugged in.
Other Thoughts: Didn't come with many cables and didn't come with a speaker (and neither did the case). Luckily had one hidden away because we had a bad stick of ram but couldn't hear the post codes.
With a 2 slot video card you will (at best) be able to get to 1 PCIX slot (the 2.0 slot assuming your video card is using pcix3.0) but the middle 2 slots will be inaccessible.
