This is the one regret I have with this build. This case is very low quality. The small metal strips that are screw removed to open up an area on the back of the case for the video card ports have to actually be physically pried off. And they leave a little unattractive metal piece sticking off that I had to peel back with pliers in order to push my card up all the way.
Another gripe I have with this is that the built-in motherboard standoffs elevate the board to much, causing the top of my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO to push up against the window and actually scratch it when I remove it.
This will definitely be the first thing I upgrade.
Tight fight on the 212 evo and power cables for SATA make it hard to power a dvd drive, hdd and ssd at the same time so I have to power 2 at a time.
Too small to fit the Evo 212 well. Did my research before hand and people said it would be a tight squeeze and compatibility filter matches it. I would say that it does not. Buy a wider case. The copper points on the very edge of the Evo will be right against the window. It was so tight that I accidentally scratched the window on it. Not the fault of the case I understand but as a case I have to say it is not wide enough, understand that the Evo 212 is one of the most popular coolers on the market and this case won't fit it properly.
This case looks cool but is horribly designed. The screw holes do not line up properly for the motherboard or the GPU. You really have to bend this case to get the holes to line up, so much in fact, you risk breaking your components. NOT GOOD!
Now the cable management is dog wiener as the photos show, but it was a cheap case, and well made for how much it costs. Would recommend.
