This is the only ATX-sized case I could find that has PSU/drive compartments behind the motherboard, allowing for a smaller, more boxier case. It's unique and looks cool! The motherboard is inverted, a trend that a few manufacturers are starting to follow now. Apparently there is significantly better cooling this way.
The case can hold up to 3 drives, at least one of which has to be an SSD (I didn't think this was that clear on the manufacturer's website). It comes with one front fan but that's it; there is a slot for a rear 80 mm fan, which you'll definitely want to buy (this adds ~ 10 bucks to your case cost). It cannot hold GPU's much longer than the length of the motherboard due to cables probably being routed through the side.
It also can't hold tall GPU's. My MSI r9 380 shroud hits the acrylic window and I can't close the case. PCPartPicker does not yet correctly identify cards that fit inside this case. I've been able to fit an Asus GTX 750 Ti, XFX Radeon 7770, and a compact Zotac GTX 970.
The case quality is OK, though for 80 bucks I believe there are far better quality choices. Some things about it annoy me. The cable routing is pretty unimaginative; a few big gaps spaced around the motherboard without any grommets makes aesthetically-pleasing cable routing difficult. Tall coolers will not fit in this case, nor will 120mm liquid coolers (despite what Riotoro says). The walls are too thin; for example, I can see a small dent on the top of the case caused by the motherboard tray. The plastic accent peace on the front does not match well at all with the otherwise metal exterior. The PCI slots cannot be reinstalled once removed, as they are meant to be pulled off and discarded. You'll need to buy extra slots (~ 10 bucks) if you ever want to cover an open PCI slot.
Get this case if you like the look, want something compact, and have an ATX motherboard. Otherwise don't bother.

Phenomenal case!!!! I LOVED building in this thing! Has a lot of versatility and doesn't feel cheap at all. Sturdy, tough, and great size while still allowing full ATX boards. I recommend this case to anyone looking for something a little different and a little smaller without losing any functionality.
Also, an added bonus, this is an opposite-sided window case with a dual chamber setup. This means that even your GPU fans aim upward and you have +1 to your style points for having a setup outside the standard. Love this case.
