This case is fantastic! It looks amazing, has plenty of space for components and fans. Is good for cabling and has amazing airflow. The only downside is that some cabling may be required before motherboard installation if you want it to look nice. Also, this case isn't super friendly if you have short cables because they may not be long enough to route.

Great case! Love everything about it! Has 5 spots to mount 120mm fans, and can support any standard size radiator as well. 2X USB 3.0 on the front is certainly nice, and allows for 6 3.5 in drives, when you use the removable drive bay. There is a filter, if you wish to install your power supply with the fan facing out of the case as well. PCI covers can be reinstalled, and the window is very nice. Plenty of room for cable management, thumbscrews that are attached to the side panels so you won't lose them as well. Fantastic Case, would definitely recommend!

A pretty good case for $60. Nice big side window, and a pretty sharp design.

Everything fits. The side panel screw didn't like to go in. The power button can be pressed to easily.

Pros: great for cable management and was spacious enough to work in even with clumsy hands. I like the angular, aggressive look of it. The glass shows off the entire inside of the case. Plenty of vents for passive exhaust.

Cons: Too much passive venting and extremely scant dust filter coverage. Very cheap dust cover under PSU mount. Open gap under dust filters in front of case allows dust to bypass the front filter, ableit to a fairly small degree. Only mounts for 1 front intake fan. Side panel window shows off ENTIRE inside of case, making it impossible to stow away cables out of sight. It is a "yuge" case so you need a space large enough to park it. The third runway at Chicago O'Hare should be about right.
