from completed build ICY (First Build)

It looks nice and functions well. I was a little annoyed by the thumbscrews that you have to unscrew to get the side off. This is my first build and I don't know if other cases use those knobs or not. My old prebuilt office PC had a latch that you just pull and the side pops right off. It's just a convenience issue, really. There isn't too much room in the back for cable management, but I got it working. I never had an aftermarket case so I don't know how much space is normally allocated for cable routing behind the motherboard. It's matte black, which is pretty darn sexy. Overall it is a pretty solid case, especially for $20 (bought it off a friend).
