from completed build An HTPC for 1080p/60Hz gaming
An edit in April 2019. I used this case for 6 years now. This case is a champ at what it's intended for! Excellent look as part of the home theater setup. Takes as much space as the amplifier (Onkyo TX-NR525). It gives room to install a 10.5 inch GPU (you can fit a titan in this case!). It is noteworthy that this case is really painful to work with at first. I stopped working in the middle of making the initial build and resumed working the next day. Not very "screw-less" design and you'll be using your screwdrivers a lot working with it. Cable management was also a struggle. If I was to do this all over then I'd throw the case with all the parts at a computer shop and pay them to spare myself the burden of putting together a build in such a crammed up case.
This case also gives you room to install an optical drive (which I only use nowadays for audio CDs), 2 internal 3.5" HDDs (One secured against the the extended part of the hot-swap bay - right above the PSU, and the other one is right under the OD bracket), 1 internal 2.5" storage drive (right inside the hot-swap drive), and a couple of 3.5" HDDs that you can slide in the hot-swap bays. That's a total of 6 SATA ports that I have fully populated on my Mobo. If you needed this much storage units, make sure the mobo is capable of having that much ports. specially if an M.2 SSD is to be added to your build since it might deactivate 2 SATA ports. I use this much storage for Personal Videos, Games, Movies, and ripping my music CDs. If you have another PC and don't that much drives, you might as well scrap this case altogether and go for a smaller one.
The case fans are dead silent and make the case need very little cleaning with all the filters they come with! I live in the desert and I opened the case after 12 months prepared to dust it off with data-vac. But ended up closing it without doing much cause it was sparkling clean in there. I replaced the fans after years to allow more airflow into the case as the need to run the CPU at higher boost clocks increased through the years. The new fans provided better temps for the internal parts but now it gathers dust in there much faster. The USB ports might be of very poor quality. One of the ports died. I use the front ports rarely but could really use the two simultaneously sometimes.
I highly recommend pairing this case with a non-modular PSU. The hot swap part of the case has a plastic bracket supporting its weight that is placed very close to PSU connectors. Using a fully modular PSU was painful as I had to cram all the wirings behind the plastic thing. I replaced the PSU later with a non-modular one that has all wirings coming out of one opening in the back of the PSU and the amount of cables behind the plastic bracket was reduced by this replacement. I Also recommend that the bench where you place this case has sufficient air flow from the back.
tl;dr: This case has many cons which I don't mind to overlook since it's nearly perfect for what it's intended for.
