Reasonable space but it could do with a bit more for cable management. Nice and quiet,
If your considering using the X61 Kraken you'll need to cut a few slots in the metal cross bar in the top of the case to make room for the hoses. Doesn't effect the external appearance though.
I got this case for $40 on sale at newegg i am extremely happy with it, the case looks awesome comes with 5 fans (although 3 of them are molex) its not too loud but you will know its on, i had no issue with cable management (i didnt try very hard). and did i mention it just looks good lol.
I chose this case based on a TomsHardware article, and despite some issues, I still really like it. I wanted something a little more on the rare side, rather than the millionth Fractal Design R4. It's also got a flashy window, unique (albeit sort of silly) styling, and decent cooling. However, I'm not sure I'd recommend it to someone planning to use a graphics card longer than 295mm because of the problems I had on top of the other cons.
If your card isn't that long, it's probably a good choice, but do keep in mind that it has breakaway slot covers. I bought a nice 10 pack of slot covers for $7 on Amazon (and you could certainly pay less) and just replaced all of them so I don't have to worry about those anymore. However, they can be pretty stubborn to remove, and I would recommend doing so before installing the motherboard.
The front panel is a huge pain in the rear to remove.
I had no idea going in to buy this, but although not all of the standoffs went into the mobo (not sure if its the case or the mobo), this thing has the potential of 8 fans and has a variety of features. Plus with preinstalled fans, this thing looks AWESOME in the dark. Sleek and stylish, good job Zalman.
