Pretty slick case. It is easy to work in. There is decent cable routing. I think it looks really sharp. The tempered glass has a slight tint on it, which is a nice touch. I'm not a big RGB guy, but the lights here are subtle and add to the black/red look. It's also light weight and easy to move around.
There are a couple of issues:
1. There is no front case fan. It's also a bit weird to mount a 140 fan. There are 4 screws that came with the case that'll work, but if you want to do two 140's, you'll have to find some extra screws somewhere.
2. The way the GPU mounts into the case is off center. I took some photos of how the 760 sits in the back of the case. You aren't able to use the HDMI slot because the case gets in the way. I used a DVI to HDMI adapter I had laying around.
3. The GPU runs pretty hot - like 83c. It's really close to the PSU shroud and I think a blower style or hybrid would work a little better here.
Beautiful case, larger than most itx cases but very well build and room for a 240 rad even with taller ram.
This case looks even better IRL. TIP: You will need different mounting screws for the front.
Top rad mount might be suited for custom loop as an aio will be gasping for air.
Great case overall. Radiator bracket on the top is very nice, since usually water coolers are a pain to install. Tempered glass looks amazing, and lots of well-placed holes for cable management. Good room to build.
Some minor complaints/issues I had in my build:
The slide-in radiator bracket is a little tight. It could be a little more loose from the factory, since it's just meant to hold it temporarily until you can get the screws in.
The tracks for the radiator bracket prevent a 280mm radiator from fitting properly. They need barely .5cm more for it to fit. If you look at my build you can see I just went ahead and bent the brackets down (looks terrible in the pictures, but you can't see it once the radiator is in place) to give it a little more clearance. Those tracks should be shorter from the factory.
The included fan comes installed on the back, so I needed to move it to the front to give clearance for my water cooler. But the fan mounts on the front don't have mounting holes for the included fan. Again if you check out my build I had to grab some washers I had laying around to MacGyver a solution to mount the fan on the front.
