How's the C70 serving you?

Was it easy to build in?

What's the cable management like?

Did the side window with the radiator mounting point bother you?

How are the handles?

Is it easy enough to carry when there's a system in it?

Anyway, +1 for a nice build.

C70 is a great case. When i got mine, the clips that hold the side panels were bent, so i had to kind of bend it into shape until it began to fit like it was supposed to, but that wasn't a major flaw.

Yes, actually. This was the first PC I've ever built before, and with (dare i say moderate) knowledge of assembly, i assembled it in a little over an hour.

Cable management is great, although i wasn't quite sure how to use it all, so on my build it wasn't all that great. The front looks good, but the back panel is completely cluttered with wires. This is an error on my part rather than the case though.

It did originally, but it faded quickly as i started to notice the greater aspects of the case. If i had any fans left over, i probably would've put some facing toward the video card for added cooling, but i also ran out of fan plugins on my motherboard.

Handles are probably the sturdiest on any case i've ever seen. Ever. Absolutely no problems there.

My completed build weighed in at maybe a guess of about 25-30lbs. so yes, but you may have to set it down if you hold it longer than 2 minutes.
