I really like this case.

Pros: I wanted to keep my blueray optical drive.
Good cable management, however those rubber grommets tended to pop out on me when running cables from the opposite side.
Plenty of room & working great and nice aesthetics (I like the sudo-brushed metal look).

Cons: 1 USB 3.0 front panel port doesn't seem to be working, but the other is fine. Not worth RMA'ing over, perhaps I'll fix it myself someday.
I wish I knew who manufactures the RGB control board for the case. Have to rely on mobo RGB option to control lighting.
Printed directions are a bit lacking, very difficult to read and oversimplified... leaves a lot of questions, that's for sure. Not much info on the manufacturer website either... but I've made the best of it.

Other Thoughts: Fit everything nicely, I would recommend for the price point.

Detail Specs

Pros: NOTE: THIS IS FOR THE V6-RGB. Newegg has combined the reviews of the RGB with the V6-RGB which are major different reviews. I have been building systems since 1995. Here are the details. I will divide into the good, the bad and the ugly. First the good new.

All fans locations are capable of either 120mm or 140mm. That includes the front, back and top. Front fan area is 12 inches or 30.5CM high with 120 and 140 rows. It can hold fan/radiator 6.5CM deep although bottom half of lower fan is up against the hard drive area, so give it some room. Top is 16.25" long or 41.5CM with 120 and 140 rows. about 7.5CM down to my Noctua D14 and about 6CM down to my motherboard connectors in case you want to install a radiator. Back fan has 120 and 140 holes.

Weight. It is 20.0lbs, but the chassis without the glass is 15.5lbs. My 15 year old Cooler Master was 25.5 lbs empty. Considering the width now includes the cable management area making the case about 1.5" wider, I think the weight is light. If they had plastic or acrylic side panels, then everyone would complain about that. Case is metal all around. The front panel that is in front of the metal grid for the fans is plastic and the feet are metalized plastic. Feet raise the case 1.75CM off the floor for air circulation from the PSU.

Filters. The filters are screens and are located at the front, top and bottom. All remove easily. All measurements are for opening size of filter. Front screen is 11" x 5.5". Top screen has a magnetic ring around a screen measuring: 16" x 5.5". Bottom is located under the PSU and is 7" x 5".

Fan Controller. They have changed how they mount it. It is now mounted on the cable management side of the back plane around the middle with screws and one of those flat sponges under it, so it is a nice install that will not harm the circuit board.

Cable Management. My first cable management case, so measuring 33mm of depth is good room for a beginner at cable management. It contains 18 tied-down points. 8 grommet-based holes around the ATX board. Honey comb mesh is provided on the back plane and at the rear for air flow. Comes with 4 Velcro strips for large cables that fit with the tied down points up the middle of the back plane.

Tempered Glass. Comes with removable plastic coating on both sides to keep things clean. 4 Screws have grommets and screw in nicely. Glass holes are slightly larger than grommets and fits well. Finger tightened screws hold the glass in place well. Measured to 4mm thick and 4.5 lbs.

Back Side Panel. Just in case you need to know, it is metal and not glass. This keeps the cables from being seen and lowers the overall weight since the metal panel weighs 2.0 lbs.

Front Electrical Panel. This is where the USB, Audio, Power and Reset are located. It is not on top (which I think is very stupid considering the dust collection issue). It is at a 45 deg angle on the top front. Also, the case provides rubber plugs for all holes to keep them lint free if not in use. This includes 4 USB plugs and 2 audio plugs. My old mother board does not have RGB, but I was able to test the RGB button on the panel. It has solid colors, quick changing colors, slow changing colors and off (while fans spin). There is no fan speed switch as see on the RGB version. The interesting part is the HD LED is on the reset button and will glow when the HDs are in use. Checked out all ports and all work as expected. Power LED is on power button and blinks when in standby mode.

PSU and Shrouds. Shroud fits a PSU 9.5CM tall. Width area for PSU plus cables is 25CM long. I have a TX750 and it fits nicely. Since it is not modular, the extra cables hide nicely in front the of PSU. There are no vents on top of the shroud, so either point the PSU fan down or remove the shroud (which I would not do; any dust would settle on the PSU.) There are 2 removable shrouds. They overlap and cover the PSU area and the hard drive area at the bottom. The 3.5" hard drive area below the shroud is riveted, so you will not be able to remove it without modding the case.

Cons: Now for the bad. I do not think any of the items here are not fixable, but it should be noted as an issue.

Lack of instructions: When you get the case, you will get a package of screws, grommets, ties, etc. Most of which can be figured out. The grommets with special screws are different than any other part. It looks like they may be for a front side radiator, but the holes are outside of the 140mm area, so I really have no idea. Also, there is also no instructions on the fan controller and its extra pinouts, like the "Fan Speed".

Fan noise. I have been building systems for a while and not a fan of noise (pun). I keep all fan specs below 20dBA, so noise is important. The good part is the fans are fluid-based. The three fans are less than an aircraft taking off, but I would not say they are quiet. Without measuring, they sound around 30-35 dBA. Some specs say 20dBA, but at full speed, it sounds higher. The cause is simple, the RPMs are high. they sound around 1600 RPM. If we could reduce the fan speed, they would be quite. Here is the way to change the fan speed. On the fan controller near the word "Fan Speed" is a circuit board switch. Clicking it will change the speed from high to low. There are only 2 speeds. There is no access to speed control outside of the controller. At low, the fans are barely noticeable, so I am good with the lower speed. I shutdown the PC, turned off power to the PSU and waited 60 seconds. When turned back on, the setting stayed at low, so it does not reset with no power.

SSD. Many have mentioned there are issues installing the SSDs. Here are the details. There are 6 locations that the case identifies for SSD mounting. 3 are on the honeycomb back plane and 3 are on the frame where the back panel is screws on (rear side). DIYPC shows pictures of the back panel mounting; although, I do not like that the SSD is mount against the removable back panel. The honeycomb back plane area has an issue with the SSD power supply connectors. My PSU connectors are cabled with a 90 deg angle from the connector (as most are) and if you look at where the SSD bottom screwholes are with respect to the connector direction, you will see that the PSU SSD connectors needs the cable to drop through the honeycomb back plane (not possible). So, my solution was to use NewEgg part number N82E16812422773 (Molex to SSD Power cable). This cable has the wires parallel with the connector allowing for it to connect to the SSD that is flat to the back plane. Seems real stupid to not use the SSD power connectors from the PSU which is why this is a con. Now the SSD mount points to the side of the case can use the PSU SSD connector, but you need to bend them to minimize how much they push on the exterior case panel. The SSD on the honeycomb area can be mounted from either side.

Other Thoughts: These are areas that could have good points and bad points based on the way you look at them. I call them the ugly.

Air Flow: There are holes to the outside everywhere. This can be a con or a pro based on your perspective. Filtered holes on front, top and bottom. Unfiltered holes: Back side panel have them on the front side of the panel from top to bottom. The back is basically honeycomb from top to bottom. To keep unfiltered air from coming into the case, recommend having more fans moving air in that out.

Fan RGB. First, the fan blades are opaque black, so the LED colors do not show on the blades at all (only an LED ring). New RGB fans are white or opaque. Next, the LEDs are NOT addressable, so you get a single color at a time. Newer fans are RGB addressable. To the positive, getting over 50% off the case makes the fans basically free, so who can complain. Considering the fans are hydraulic, makes then nice.

Hard drives 3.5. It has 2 locations; Spec says 3, but you do not want to hard screw the hard drive to the bottom of the case (The official 3rd spot). The 2 mount points are provided with a removable 3.5" caddy you screw the hard drive to. Those locations work well. They are located near the lower front fan. My only concern is the air flow through the hard drive area. Fans blow the air to the hard drive, but the drives are covered with a non-breathing shroud and the exit point is where the PSU cables are; blocking some air flow to the air exit points. It may not be an heat issue, but just to know.

Height. Is it a full tower? Not sure, it does hold a ton of stuff. They took a mid tower, increased the feet under it so air can flow out of the PSU, then increased the height 1 inch to have space for the top fans. About 1.5 inches deeper to hold 3x 140mm fans. So if you want those extras, the size is fine.

Well, that was a lot of typing, and some will not spend the time reading this long winded summary. Hopefully some of you will take some of the specification details and make the good decision as to whether to purchase this. Remember this is for the V6 version. I had noticed lots of bad reviews on the other case mixed into the reviews.

Best Case I've Ever Bought

Pros: - no sharp internal edges in the case. First time I've built a PC without at least a couple of cuts on my hands
- the RGB fans sync well with no real lag with motherboard control
- Color range of the fans seems equal with other RGB components in the system
- Cable management was complete and easy
- all case screws (including stand-offs) were included and most were quality
- tool-less drive cages are nice
- plenty of room in the case
- the fans get plenty of air and help keep my CPU 10 C cooler than the average PC with my processor and cooler

Cons: - stand-off screws were ok brass, but the motherboard mounting screws were crappier than others I had already
- case is big, really big and heavy (could be a plus or minus, depending on who you are, because it's a solid brute)
- instructions included with the case are lousy. It took an internet search to figure out how to sync the RGB.

Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT!!! To use the motherboard controlled RGB you need to hold down the RGB cycle button on the front of the case for 3 seconds. !!!I've previously cheaped out when buying cases, but this time decided to see just how much a difference spending a bit extra would make. I must say it was more than worth the difference in price.

Awesome case

Pros: - A lot of space.
- RGB control pre installed.
- 3 RGB Fans pre installed.
- It has 2 front 5.25 bays for Bluray drive, which is hard to find at this price point.
- Price.
- It can fit three 3.5 HDDs.
- Comes with more than enough screws, cable ties and velcro ties.
- Cable management.
Magnetic filters

Cons: - Confusing instruction manual.
- Only 2 HDD/SSD bracket.
- 3rd 3.5 HDD can only be install at the bottom HDD bracket and is secure directly to the chassie with screws.

Other Thoughts: Like I mention before, the instruction manual is just a 1 page photo copy. Reading it is confusing, specially on how to install the 3rd HDD and the SSDs. I honestly wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to install 2 SSDs and 3 3.5 HDDs.

On DIY defense, the case have more than enough space to just place the SSDs on the chassis. I just wish they gave more brackets or at least have a better manual explination on how to take advantage of the SSDs screw holes. When I was about to give up and just use a double sided tape to stick the SSDs, I figure 2 locations where I can just screw the SSDs. There is 1 location where you can use 4 special screws/raiser that comes in the case to install 1 SSD. There is no mention of this on the manual. The other one I installed it under the bluray drive. After I was done, I was really happy with this buy. I recommend this case with a stress ball because of the confusing manual.

The long search for a case is over

Pros: If you're looking at cases with a list of must have features like mine; at least a couple HDDs and SSDs, room for top radiator to not sacrifice the front, glass side, good construction, roomy, stylish, grommets, some half decent RGB fans compatible with motherboard sync to use for at least a while out the gate until replaced by something better (and 140mm is supported as well) dust filters, and last but not least, actually existent 5.25 bays.. and well priced to boot, look no further. There may be no such thing as a perfect case, and aesthetics are entirely subjective, but i looked at a LOT of cases until deciding on this one, it hits every note.

Cons: the fans are not the best, but you are basically getting them for free, since a decent RGB fan runs at least $30 CAD. They use molex power and some strange 6-pin thing on the RGB/speed connection to the case controller, so no plugging them into the motherboard directly which i would prefer for my own fan curves.

The installation manual is a 2 sided piece of paper poorly translated from chinese and parts seemingly copy/pasted from non-relevant cases. It does more harm than good. Some experience/intuition is definitely needed.

Other Thoughts: For everyone have trouble getting the RBG to sync.. throw the instructions away. It starts by saying locate the addressable RGB header, then says plug the aura connector into 12v RGB... what? 5v 3-pin addressable headers and 12v RGB headers are totally different and you shouldn't try plugging one into the other ( I learned all this while making this build) despite what the instructions or anything else says, this case has a 12 VOLT RGB (non addressable) connector and should be plugged into a 4-pin RGB header. Then hold down the LED button and it will sync to motherboard.

Silent, Spacious, Sexy, and yet Sensible!

Pros: -Plenty of Room for ATX board plus GPU
- Silent Fans
- Fully RGB fans pre-installed
- BEAUTIFUL MACHINING

Cons: - PSU (Larger, maybe) MUST be installed through the side behind the MoBo.
- Rubber hole stoppers came off easier when dealing with cable management; however were easy to reinstall.

Nice case with nice features

Pros: 4 front USB, room for 360 rad on top and a 280 in front, great cable management. Very roomy to build in. Power supply shield is 100% removable to make working in the case easier, however, I had no trouble at all working with it even with the shroud still on. Optical drive is also removable. 3 screws in front, 2 on each side.

Cons: Bottom hard drive rack is not removable, this only leaves about 1.5cm of space between the rad and hdd cage. Not really a con, but something that could have been better had the cage been removable.

Other Thoughts: So, I had a "must have" list when I chose this case that fit everything I was looking for. Optical drive bay, ATX board, tempered glass, PS shroud, a nice setup that let me display all my rgb fans. After all my searching, this case was perfect except for one tiny thing. I wanted a white interior. So, what I did was mask off the outside and painted the inside just like I wanted. The LL120's/140's look amazing with a white interior. Check out what I did with it on builds.gg/builds/diypc-vanguard-v6-rgb-10495
