Pros: Great Build! Looks amazing. Everything installed and worked perfectly. Well packaged, and was delivered in perfect shape. Installing LED strips was a breeze, and the whole build went very smooth. Was nice to have a lot of room on the "rear" cable-chamber to route all the wiring. I placed an MSI 980ti SeaHawk GPU with it's fan blowing out the back, and a Corsair H100i blowing out the top with a i7-6700K CPU/ASUS Sabertooth Mobo. Temperatures until full load are great, showing the cooling is working optimally in the case. I was a little worried about not having any positive airflow into the main chamber, and the three rear chamber fans "stealing" all the air, but that clearly does not happen. The three rear chamber fans are always running fairly slow since it does not get hot back there.

Cons: Only con was not really the case's fault. The thermal armor on the ASUS TUF Mobo made fitting the graphics card impossible with the shape of the case where the card has to slot in before fastening. I had to remove the Mobo, fit the GPU, then slide it back in. I have used the TUF Mobo before on a build (with a Corsair 750D) and did not have this issue, so I a, guessing the case was part of the problem. But no big deal, IMO! A non-TUF Mobo would not have this problem.

Overall Review: Would recommend to anyone to give this case a go if they want something a little "special" :)
