Reviews

from completed build Ice White

Seriously impressed with this mid tower case. The looks are spot on for what I wanted, sleek but not boring and doesn't look too over the top which some cases can do.

The included 200mm side intake fan is an excellent starting point for case ventilation, I may swap for dual 140mm unit when I get into overclocking this system but just the default fan configuration, dual fron 120mm and 120mm rear exhaust, coupled with my CPU Cooler keeps my temps really low.

6x 3.5"/2.5" bays and 4x 5.25" bays give pleany of room for storage and the bulge in the rear cover coupled with the excellent cable management holes and gromets make working in this case nice and easy.

My only criticism would be that the first case I recieved one of the side panel thumb screws was broken in an unopened manufacturers box, I quickly returned and got a new unit. Also it could be debated that this case is a little expensive compared to other mid tower cases.

Overall a very happy user.

It's a good case: tons of expansion slot and feature. Ton of space to put things. The only problem is that the mobo si attached too up, so if you have a Kraken it will be very HARD to put the radiator on the "upper" place.


  • Heads up... If you plan on using 140mm fans in the top you will want to drill out the holes bigger BEFORE you start your build (or use the Phanteks 140mm fans that use 120mm mounting holes by design). Trust me. Just pull the rubber grommets out of the 120mm holes and drill the 140mm ones to that size and use the grommets. Maybe even do it if you're not sure you will, just so its done for later. Use caution cause I'm not sure how this would effect a future radiator.

  • The included fans and controller have proprietary connections (non standard 3-pin fan) and wont work with other fans/controllers right out of the box. A Dremel or clipping sanding them can fix this pretty easy though. The fans are also wired differently than normal as well. See my build for details

  • The case LED fan on/off button can be easily modded to use LED light strips. See my build for details.

  • Also a window looks WAAAAAAYYYY better than mesh. That mod is also easy.
