Pros: Basic fans with no frills. Work perfectly; exactly as you would expect.

Cons: None

Most Critical Review

Neat design with a major flaw. OVERHEATING

Pros: - Huge on the inside (that's what she said) for all of your components; can fit two SLI cards and a radiator easy - Easily interchangeable color accents - Well designed window for seeing into the case; perfect for a simple led setup

Cons: - Needs more SSD holders - Does not have ANY airflow - The way that the front panel is designed does not allow for any airflow. There are two very small ducts to allow air movement through the front panel, which are partially obstructed by the fans you will need to install. While it does have room for three fans and/or a radiator in the front, there isn't properly designed air passages for adequate thermal control. The only way to get your system to breath properly is to run the case with the front panel off. I personally have had crashes due to overheating with this case. The only thing that had changed from pre to post crashing was this exact case. With the front panel on, overheating. With the front panel off, perfect temps and abundant airflow.

Overall Review: While this case looks awesome and has all the "features" you might be seeking, it does have one glaring flaw. It is not usable in its currently designed, fully assembled state. The only way to keep all your components healthy is to take off the front to breath, and if I wanted an open air rig I would have bought a test bench. There is no reason why someone should have to use their case partially assembled to make sure that it works.
