Prefer this over R6 4/14/2019 6:39:46 PM

Pros: Sturdy; silent; customizable.

Cons: No cons, but I would have liked one more fan included in the front.

Overall Review: I love the simple design without logos or patterns. I removed the HDD and ODD cages for more room, which is why I prefer this over the R6 model: the R6 has a PSU shroud that restricts space. Overall, a very satisfying case.

Awesome Case 4/10/2019 1:18:58 PM

Pros: Professional Aesthetic
Includes case fans
Quality metal
Sounds proofing materials
Dust filters
Lots of room for expansion

Cons: None

Overall Review: This was the case I used on my first PC build. I really like the form factor. It is a pleasure to work in the spacious interior. All the cuts and screw holes are perfectly placed with solid metal frames. It has 3 built in fans for cooling which are very quiet in PWM mode. Plus sounds absorbing material on the walls help make it quiet. Great slots to put wires out of the way for cable management.

The outside matte black metal and plastic face look professional. Front face can swing open for better cooling while in use.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to build a PC.

Great Case 4/3/2019 7:44:31 PM

Pros: Very easy to work on. Drive bays face out which makes swapping them very easy. No sharp edges to get cut on. No lights, window, etc give it a very conservative. Have two of these cases and would highly recommend.

Cons: The drive slides have rubber vibration dampening rings that can be a bit challenging to get installed correctly. I'm not sure how I would improve on the design there. The case is a bit more expansive. ( But worth it )

Great Product, Minor Issues 1/21/2019 12:59:30 AM

Pros: Case design and aesthetics are absolutely beautiful and superb, it looks just like it does in the pictures and delivers completely when you receive it on your front door. Fractal has designed a beautiful and functional case, that is also supremely quiet, which makes it possibly one of the best cases I have ever bought.

Cons: Only con I have with this case, and it is a minor one for me (but maybe not for others) is that the M2 screws they sent along with the case to screw the motherboard in were far too short. I have a z390 Aorus Master Motherboard and almost 2/3 of the screws were too short to even screw into the motherboard; which meant I had to cannibalize an older computer for screws which ended up working. Apart from that, the case is beautiful and I wouldn't recommend people not buy it just because of that, because it is truly a fantastic case, and Fractal has a history of making super cases in general.

Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this case, just test the M2 screws when you get them and be prepared to use different ones on the off-hand they are too short for your mobo.
