    from completed build Tight Budget CAD/Gamer

    I really like the super dark tinted glass you cant see into the case unless lighted from the inside but then looks great. plenty of room above the mother board. i was able to do a decent job of cable management its more so designed to be easy rather tight and clean. good filtered airflow.

    only one major con. the front of the case is held on with compression snap clips and requires the removal of both side panels and the the us of needle nosed pliers to compress the clips to get the front off making cleaning the filter kinda a pain

    Great case to build in for micro-ATX builds. Front panel looks like it can be restrictive but there is a removable dust filter on the front that should help increase airflow if removed. Tempered glass is very dark tinted, you can't see the internals unless the inside of the case is illuminated. Overall, solid chassis I give it a recommendation to anyone searching for a stylish budget tempered glass case.

    from completed build Stealthy Cougar

    Good overall, but with some quirks.

    Let's start with the good: it's a good-looking (if slightly understated) case with support for just about anything you could want in a mATX build - 280mm radiators, copious amounts of 140mm or 120mm fans, plenty of drives, ample dust filtering - you name it.

    It's also reasonably easy to build, albeit with two exceptions. The first is the included toolless 2.5 inch drive caddies. They're actually a really cool design that works well, and there's two included (with space for three total), each with a dedicated cable routing cutout on the top of the power supply shroud. The only problem is that they mount a bit too close to the bottom edge of motherboard, which means the drives' cables interfere with all of your front I/O connections. It basically made the caddies unusable for my Gigabyte board, and I suspect it will be an issue for plenty of other boards as well.

    The good news is that the 3.5 inch cage hidden below the shroud has mounting points on the toolless sleds for 2.5 inch drives as well, so it wasn't a big deal. However, if you want more than 3 2.5 and/or 3.5 inch drives, you'll have to get a little creative if the dedicated 2.5 inch caddies don't work out.

    The second issue is the thermals. It's not unique to this case, but the aesthetically-pleasing monolithic front panel with a slit cutout running its perimeter falls short of a regular mesh panel. It's not a huge limiting factor, but popping it off makes a big difference. You could probably improve a bit with it on by removing the fine mesh dust filter it covers up, but you know, then there will be dust accumluation.

    Everything else is pretty great and flexible. Fan mounting options are plentiful, there's ample space and cutouts for cable routing, and everything ends up being compact while avoiding feeling cramped. I especially like that there's multiple mounting points for the HDD rack down low, which means it can be moved to make more room for extra non-modular cables or pushed back out of the way to make room for a front radiator. Add in the easily accessible dust filters and it's golden.

    A couple of additional notes: the tinted tempered glass pane is indeed quite dark as others have noted, so if you want to see in to your beautiful build, you'll need at least some additional interior lighting. Also, the front panel is in fact removable just by pulling at the bottom, but it's d@mn stiff and requires equally forceful pushing to reattach.
