Conclusion: Although initially the Ghost didn't really impress us (perhaps because we thought it would be a high-end PC case) in the end it does come with quite a few interesting features that make it a very good overall choice for people on a rather tight budget.
Pros: - Design, - Top 240mm Radiator Spot, - Up To 6 Fans, - Two Pre-installed Fans, - Adjustable Door, - Serenitek Noise-Dampening Material, - S4 Top Docking Station, - Interior Space (CPU Coolers & Graphics Cards), - Price (For Some)
BitFenix Ghost Case Review: Begging for the Premium Treatment

Conclusion: Reviewing the BitFenix Ghost, I'm left with strangely mixed feelings. Every so often a case comes through that I very much want to see succeed, and the Ghost is one of those.

Pros: Vented covers with air filters for the external 5.25” bays, Air filter for the front, top, bottom, and power supply fans, Reversible and removable front door, Padded front and side panels, External 3.5”/2.5” docking bay inside a hidden storage compartment, Support for very long video cards (12.6”...
Cons: Holes for hoses on the rear panel are not protected with rubber covers
