The manual states that the GD08 supports an SSI-EEB board if using 60mm fans, however, this is only half true. Although you can physically insert an SSI-EEB board, it is an incredibly tight fit. I dont mean you have almost no space around the board, I mean you have to force the board in place. In addition to the size issue, 2 of the mounting holes do not line up at all, forcing you to either leave them empty or jerry-rigging supports for the board.

When I received my case, I was expecting the 5.25" drive bay external doors to be oddly colored, however, I was not expecting how bad the paint job on the case was. Mine looked as though a grade 5 student was beginning a career as a tagging artist.

Now that I have the case I will use it, however, I don't think I would buy it again.

Absolutely love this case. It looks awesome in a home theater setup and packs in more storage than most tower style cases. The removable storage rack is brilliantly designed - takes 8x 3.5" HDD's, 2x2.5" drives and 2x 5.25" opticals, and then just slots into place above 3x 120mm case fans.

Perfect for a HTPC/Home Server setup, and for those that have mammoth movie and TV collections like me!

Personally I love this case for HTPC builds, although it is right at the larger end for such uses. If you're looking to have your HTPC double up as a home media server, then you can't go wrong - 8x 3.5" and 4x 2.5" drive bays should suffice for most of us mere mortals!
