    from completed build Old Guy's First Build

    A good-looking, beautifully-assembled and highly-expandable case that was easy for my clumsy fingers to build in. I wanted the old-school CD/DVD drive, and surprisingly few cases offer that anymore.

    I got the Gunmetal Grey model with front-panel USB-C option. The fans are black on this, not white as some earlier versions evidently were. Didn't want any RGB fan effects... the RAM lighting (set on steady, dim green) and one discreet LED strip look good to me. FWIW I use the Mystic Light "CPU Temp" lighting option so the light strip has some utility (under 40C = green, 40-60 = blue, over 60 = red).

    Ventilation-wise, I am running with top open as shown in pics, and added two extra fans: intake in bottom-front, and exhaust out top-rear. The Fractal Design 140mm fans are nice and quiet, so even open-topped with five case fans and push-pull Noctua cooler the system is near-silent.

    from completed build ANGAD build with Ryzen 7 2700x

    Really nice case. Chose this one to future poof current build when I plan to water cool with custom water loop. I am currently running with stock fans and the ryzen 7 2700x with stock cooler, so far the temps are fine.

    from completed build Bunker Upgrade

    This case is an absolute beast. Great to work in and fit everything perfectly. Worth noting, I wasn't sure all 6 of my 140mm fans would fit (Fractal claimed they would). All of them fit except for 1 on the bottom initially. I spent some time scooting the radiator as high as it would go and was able to just squeeze my last fan in the bottom of the case.

    Pros: -Tons of spots for fans (I'm running 6 140mm and a 360mm radiator currently) -Tempered glass window is great

    Cons: -Heavy as hell (tempered glass is heavy!) -If you mount fans up top, you have to remove the top cover panel. The vents underneath don't look all that great. Would've loved if the vent piece could be rotated so that I could look in on the RGB, rather than having to stand over it to really see it

    from completed build I7-9700k Monster "El Viborón"

    Another sexy and sleek case from Fractal. Made building a breeze and there was plenty of room to work with. I love gaming computers but I like to stick to more of a classy, clean look. There are many building options with this case. The graphics card can be placed vertically in this case but it does not come with an extender to plug the GPU in. The tinted glass is also a great look.
