What a monster. I had to put it long ways in the back seat of the car as it would not slide in the trunk. It is cost effective but the cost of that is that they really need to use a hand tool power level of screwing in the thumb screws. I had to use flat heads straight on or it was useless.

I won this in a giveaway that was part of a event on the Tt Forums, otherwise I would've been content with a Core v31. This is a great case, but it's too big and unwieldy for my otherwise standard 1080p build so I'm probably going to get an M-ATX tower instead.

This case is massive! You can put anything your heart desires in here. I really like that the case is fully modular and it supports large water-cooling kits and stacking cases. For the price, I highly recommend.

Before I write anything about this case if you are looking for compact, lightweight or have a small room then stop looking at this case I assure you it isn't for you.

This case is massive, extremely heavy when loaded with hardware, completely impractical and not even that pretty to look at but my god I love it.

If like me you've bought this case or are looking at this case you already don't care about the above because you know what benefits this case offers you. It's fully modular for a start and you can even stack multiply X9's on top of each other if you're completely out of your mind and never plan on moving it EVER!!

I bought this with the intention of building a crazy system with insane water cooling capability and this delivers 100% I've currently got a 360 rad in there and it looks lost. I'm going to be putting a bigger 480 rad in there in a push-pull config and a second loop for the graphics card with another 480 in the same config. The fact that you can put 2 480 rads in push-pull side by side in this case and it even has a spare section at the bottom which will fit another 480 rad is just mind blowing.

With this case you don't make it look pretty on the outside but you can make the inside look out of this world.

My only gripe with this case so far is that I've been experiencing some vibration noise coming from the HDD mounts which is very irritating when the rest of the system is near silent. Something that can be resolved relatively easy I think but still annoying.

First off, let me put this case into perspective. Think of a moose. You see a picture of a moose online, you're like "Yeah, that's pretty big." But only when you see a moose in person do you realize just how big it is. The same goes for this case. It's immense. It's bigger than you want to believe. If you have limited space to work with, this is NOT the case for you.

If you're like me, and you don't mind having a PC the size of a minifridge, this case is godlike. This case features:

  • Nearly limitless clearance for CPU coolers and graphics cards

  • Fully customizable interior in which all parts can be removed and rearranged

  • Grated side and top panels for maximum airflow

  • Fairly good stock intake fan rated at 130CFM

  • Removable I/O panel that can swap to the other side

  • Mounts for up to 6 internal drives and 3 optical drives (though I recommend using them for fan controllers)

  • Mounting space for up to 21 12cm fans. Yes, twenty-one. You don't need that many fans. You don't need half that. But if you're buying this case, you don't believe in overkill.

All of its panels are removable. Even the bottom panel comes off. But that's not even the craziest part of it. Should you somehow manage to run out of space (which is practically impossible), you can stack another one on top of it by removing the top and bottom panels and bolting the two cases together.

Legitimately, my only gripe with this case is that the screws that hold the side panels on are short and weak. They can be replaced with longer screws quite easily though, so that's not much of an issue.

Overall, I would recommend this case in a heartbeat, especially for newbie builders (like me) who don't know how big their components are.
