Pros: True triple 360 rad support, aluminum panels, USB-c front panel, dual USB 3.0 headers for 4 front ports, dual hot swap bays in the rear for 4 HDDs. Plenty of space to hold my triple 360 rad setup, with a Singularity D5/top/res combo mounted to the side rad.
Cons: Rear cable management bar is not engineered quite as well as the original, slightly bumped into the side mount rad, but was fixed with a slight wiggle of the rad.
Overall Review: I have the original Dynamic as well. Unlike the previous reviewer I discovered no quality issues at all. No variance in tolerances in comparison to the original, windows all fit snug and secure. The clip to secure the top panel is redundant and seems like a waste. The accessory package with screws, etc was in a small white box located in top most hot swap bay, in one of the hard drive trays.
Hopefully this helps anyone with their purchase. I consider this a definite buy for a in depth water cooling setup.
Pros: These things are fast, and running very cool...very quite with a fan speed of 65%. I have pair in Crossfire, and they best a 5970 easily without breaking a sweat.
Cons: I don't like the way the 6 pins attach to the front of the card instead of the side, but that's a reference issue, not a MSI issue

Pros: These things are beasts! I have a pair in a RAID-0 Array - 450mb read/450mb write! Amazing!
Cons: The tool-less drive trays in my CM690II Advanced will not fit in the holes for the tray that accompanies these drives. Not a problem, just had to screw these drives in instead.
Pros: Large capacity, and very responsive. Being used as a media storage drive.
Cons: None yet.
