Summary: With the hard drive racks installed, you might not be able to fit a large GFX card into the case–like the Gigabyte Windforce @ 12.2". I currently have the Radeon HD 6970, which is 10.8", and it fits without an issue.
Pros: Excellent for cable management, there are lots of options for fans, and it can house a ton of hard drives. The entire front and top are mesh, so, airflow is not an issue.
Summary: I have bought two of these cases for my custom rigs, and I have had no problems. Both rigs are heavily used by multiple users. This case will be used for upgrades and subsequent builds as it is built to last.
Pros: Roomy design, mesh ventilation, tool-less, high quality construction, superior access and design for front panel and external drives.
Pros: Good looking case, stylish without being tacky. Lots of room for fans, can support 10 total. Can also support 240mm radiators for you liquid cooling fans. Pretty big for a mid tower. Has room behind the motherboard tray for cable management. Good overall build quality.
Cons: Side panels are a little flimsy but too bad. The case could be just a bit wider to give more room for hiding cables.
Summary: The case as a whole is great, but what really stands out for me is the cable management. When I finished installing the hardware, the inside of the case looked so clean and neat, which also has to help with the airflow and cooling.
Pros: The cable management in this case is awesome. The case is roomy with plenty of drive bays and mounts for extra fans and liquid coolers.
Cons: The only con might be the size of the case. I was surprised how big it is. I have an Antec Nine Hundred that I thought was really big, but this one is just a little bigger. It also might be nice to have window on the side of the case.
Summary: I love this case. Everything about it made the build easier. I recommend this and all of the rest of CM's cases to everyone I know.
Pros: *Spacey mid-tower case, with plenty of connectors, ports, and easy to use mounts, slide-outs, fan spots and more *Nice blue accent and minimal, sleek design *Top connectors and buttons, along with hard drive bay, were a great idea
Summary: My last case was a Full ATX Tower from Cooler Master. The case had huge fan that sounded like an airplane on the runway. Great case, but way too loud. This is pretty much a slightly smaller copy of my last case, but almost give out no noise from the fans. Very pleased.
Pros: Very quite fans. Plenty of room for multiple hard drives. Great layout.
