Pros: both sides fold down, and it's easy to install the hard drives since they come in a cage. came with a power supply. I like the hinged door on the front.
Cons: the fans fail quickly. I rma ed for the fans. Also, if using a long video card like a 8800gtx, you have to stagger the cards in between the hard drives. otherwise, the hard drives will hit against the video cards, and the case won't close. also, the cage for the hard drives has a wimpy latch that locks it in. Also, if you swap hardware often, be careful because the hinges on the panel break easily.
Overall Review: It's a good case if you build the computer once, and don't swap out your hardware.
Pros: the pci-e slots have a innovate release button. Better than the latch. Bios is very easy to understand. Great value for the price.
Cons: the sata controller configuration is slightly confusing. The bios says it has 3 controllers, but the board is marked as though all the ports are on one controller (sata 1, sata 2, etc.) they should be color coded, or labeled differently to make it easier to read on the board.
Overall Review: It is a big board, so get a BIG case. Also, read your manual throughly on this one, but I would surely recommend this board.
Pros: The side panels flip down, making it so convenient to work on.
Cons: those panels can become dislodged easily.
Overall Review: If they offered a model with no power supply, this would be a 5. I wish I could install my own power supply. The wires are a bit short if you have a big motherboard.
