You get what you pay for. and I dont care much for the case. I wont spend over $100 for a piece of molded aluminum. This case is good quality, good price, with a unique design.
Great case for views. Always have a microfiber cloth handy since it collects dust like nobody's business. For a newer case i would expect more USB 3.0 ports in the front, as mine only has one 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0. Not very user friendly for cleaning the front filter. The entire front face has to be removed and its clipped in. I feel like one of those clips will break after removing and reinstalling several times to clean the front intake filter.
Edit: I installed 2 more Thermaltake Riing Red LED fans to the case. One up front above the radiator for intake and one on top of the basement. The front take was a easy except for the front panel being difficult to remove and leave hanging to the side since its clipped in a and there are cables attached to it. The second fan gave me the most problems. It sits right below the Mobo, too close. I had to cut one corner of the fan mount to make it fit since it was hitting some Mobo connections if i tried to force it into place. The best solution would of been for Thermaltake to make the Mobo stand higher to allow for a little more space for the fan to fit into place or move the fan mounts forward towards the window to allow the screws to fit into place.
For a "budget case" this thing looks pretty nice. It probably looks better in the stock photos than it does in real life. I really like the uniqueness of the "gull-wing" style window. Its a dust magnet though!
Personally, I think it looks super cool even if it is not the highest quality case overall. I would have gone to the view 37 but it was just too large. That being said, I did end up modded the front panel by taking out the little side dust filters while keeping the main dust filter in front of the fans. I also cut a vertical hole in the front plastic that has helped lower temps on my gpu and cpu by 3-5 degrees which is decent and provides much better airflow.
What started the build, love the look of the clear gull-wing, original, hope i made it worthy
