Easy access for all kinds of modifications

The high-end side panels provide a mounting system with push-pins for secure and user-friendly detachment. By depressing the push-pins the locking mechanism releases the upper part of the side panel and this hovers safely until removed manually. Excellent usability for fast and easy access to the interior of the case.

Very nice, sleek case 5/18/2019 6:47:32 AM

Pros: - Panels are easily removable. A simple push pin, and they are loose.
- Nice, thick sound reducing padding.
- Full length lower dust filter, accessible from the front.
- Removable tray for top fans
- Plenty of room in the PSU shroud for excess cabling.
- Option for a vertical mounted GPU
- Option for adding 5 more HDDs, with 1 bracket included in the case.

Cons: - Sound paneling on large rear panel can make closing the case tougher with the PSU wiring.
- Lower dust filter somewhat pliable, making for replacing the filter in it's channel somewhat challenging
- Front panel can be tricky to remove and replace. Maybe it will get better with practice?

Overall Review: - Tempered glass panel has slight tint; I'd say the equivalent to a car side window.
- Top panel can be removed, but not very easily. I am guessing this may complicate regular dustings.
- I found that installing the HDDs upside down with 90 degree SATA connectors made for the better installation. Right side up proved a bit difficult with 90 degree connectors.

Final thoughts: If you are considering this case, go for it. I usually add cons to any purchase I make as there is no such thing as a perfect product. The cons are mostly minor, and shouldn't scare anyone away from buying this case. They are simply observations that I didn't like, and with the exception of regular maintenance, would be a non issue after the build is complete.
