My favorite case so far. 10/04/2012
Having owned some nice cases before, including the Cosmos S, I can safely say this is the best case I've ever had the pleasure of building with.
VERY well made and with massive attention to detail. The build quality absolutely blew me away, especially having used Coolermaster's legacy Cosmos S chassis. It's good but this makes it look like a kiddy-toy in comparison.
Aesthetically, my eyes O-gasm every time I look at it. I absolutely HATE rectangular-box plain-looking cases and this is as far from BORING as possible. I don't get why Lian Li cases cost so much when they are such an eyesore. This case is 100% looks AND 100% function.
Cable-management is a dream-come-true. So easy to route and hide ugly cables from view.
Airflow is spectacular and my toasty components are kept nice and chilly.
The thumbscrews are terrible! It is really difficult to install PCI devices because the thumbscrew mechanism has to be put in *just right* otherwise the screw will drop to the bottom of the case.
Not enough room for a 38mm thick water cooling radiator at the top. It will fit but only with the fans in PULL configuration. Can't have both PUSH and PULL fans which really b_lows but my Core i7 3930K still manages to keep cool even at 4.5GHz despite this irritating oversight.
This is both a pro and a con but this thing is **HUGE**!!! It will be quite a pain in the keister to transport but I knew that when I bought it. I still underestimated the size though. On the plus side, if I can manage to drag this beast to LAN parties, it would be most difficult to lose ;)
Despite the cons, this case is absolutely ichiban.
Perfect balance of beauty, brains and brawn (ie, looks, function and build-quality)
