Disappointed, but it does get the job done.
28 November 2013
Summary: Below are my observations, in no particular order. Don't take the negativity too strongly. The bad parts are just the ones that surprised me or stand out to me. This thing is big and heavy. That cannot be overstated. There is a lot of room, but be careful not to crush the plastic exterior parts under the sheer mass. SSI EEB motherboards do not fit properly. There were two holes missing for my motherboard (ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS).
Summary: IT IS BEING RETURNED for something that can accomidate more airflow!
Pros: -Huge, so much room to do things!, -if some one tries to steal this fully loaded, i bid them goodluck, =lots of grommits for cable managment and super sturdy
Cons: my biggest anger with this case is the cooling, if you are an averge guy that wants the nicest looking case around, but does not want to deal with the hassel of watercooling (custom) kits, you are pretty screwed. after loading this thing with as many fans as possible the ammount of airflow was sad. the side panel has room for only 2 120mm fans, being this is such a huge case youd think there would be ALOT MORE! that is why im giving this a 3 stars. dont be deceived by...
Summary: This case is really awesome and you will have plenty of space but ... why CM did not leave enough space for the top Rad ?!? If you want to mount it inside you'll have to choose slim Rads (like the Swiftech ones) and if you want to go with a 360 Rad you will have two options : 1/ You condemn the top 3.5" tray ... quite disappointing as there is only 3 trays for such a big case 2/ You drill new holes to mount the Rad a bit further back ... Be aware !!
Pros: Very big ...lots of space, Awesome space management and mounting options
Cons: Space left for the top rad mounted inside, Fan controller
Summary: Bought this to replace my 800D thinking i could fit (2) 360 rads internally. It can be done but with a few limitations. Here's a few things ive found out during my build: - Only a slim rad can be placed on the top of the case. Even then, you have to place the fans outside of the case. Installing the rad + fans internally will prevent you from installing your mobo. I find this a big negative for a manufacturer advertising this as a WC case.
Pros: - Enough space to fit your kitchen and bedroom, - Independent controls of LED's and Fan speed, - Detachable side panels, - Great airflow whether on Air or WC components, - Lots of grommets and ties to keep your wiring in check, - Candidate for a quiet case
Cons: - Price, - Heavy w/o your components inside, - A few wasted space, - Limited space when installing a radiator on top, - Non-windowed side panel, - Unable to install 360 rad on top flat since there's a pertruding metal piece thats preventing it, - Non-braided cables for the fan controller, - No wheel kit
