    from completed build Project Yellow - Gaming Build

    5 stars for the great design! Really, this case is truely a beast when you put it on your table. The rear compartment could be a little larger, but I was able to route all the cables without too much trouble.

    from completed build HiFi menziesii

    This case is really nice. Beware, if you think it's tall, add some taller to what you're imagining! It's easy to work with unless your are doing a custom loop with custom sleeving.

    An absolutely beautiful case - but very difficult to build in and flawed.

    Recommended if you want a real challenge on something unique.

    Definitely not recommended for beginners and/or air cooling.

    PROS:

    • Stunning design, high quality finish, unique. The true star of your desk if you can make good use of it.

    • Great for ITX watercooling, can fit 240+120 rads

    • Spacious and a great frame for any kind of fancy showcase system

    • Supports massive GPU's and ATX PSU's

    CONS:

    • Stock 16x riser is a piece of garbage. It's really difficult to find a high quality replacement.

    • Horrible temperatures, forget air cooling. Needs water cooling and brute force to manage high power components and OC

    • Difficult to cable manage unless you can make your own cables or commission custom made ones

    TLDR: If you want a small desk footprint case to move your ATX build parts over, this is it.

    Good:

    Lots of space, you can mount a 280mm rad, 1 3.5 inch hdd, 2 2.5inch SSD, ATX power supply and a full size 2 slot GPU in this case.

    Left side panel has a ton of space for cable management.

    Provided fans are good (it has to be or this case would choke)

    CPU temps are great if you are using an AIO.

    Bad:

    If you are using a high power GPU and air cooling it, it will not boost fully. I only managed to get my EVGA 1080ti SC Black to 1.9 GHz at 80 celcius.

    Top compartment for IO cables is too short, I had to push down and flatten the cables to get it to close. If the case was already 65cm tall, making a little taller to house these cables won't change much.

    GPU mounting bracket should come as default with the fan side facing the glass (default is fans facing the back of the motherboard).

    Some more tie down points surrounding the motherboard tray would be nice, had to jam cables between the side fan and the case to stop it from blocking the motherboard view.

    Left side panel (side where power socket is) was a pain to put back on with all the cables tucked in there since I had to align 4 pins while pushing against the case and then slide it down.

    Do not follow the instructions in order and mount the GPU after everything is done. There is a thumbscrew in the cable try under all the cables stuffed in there that you have to loosen to move the GPU bracket around. If you don't mount the GPU and place the bracket in the orientation you want, you are gonna have a bad day (I did)

    More tie down points on the right side panel would be nice to keep cables out of the way of the airflow. Could be used as cable pass through for top IO if implemented.

    Gorgeous case, really hard to build in but totally worth it at the end. 3 rads inside for better temps and strong fans did the job and allowed for a decent cooling.
