Summary: Place on wood if ya have carpet floors thats what I did till a made new feet, tried to buy some no luck to small.
Pros: bought two one white one black love em both, easy to work with, love hiding the wires in the back where ya cant see em. Lots of fan places, and I had no trouble placing one at the bottom of the case next to the power supply, and love the power supply on the bottom.
Cons: You can not put these cases on carpet floors the feet are to little the fans wont work and it will over heat, Im a tool maker and replaced the feet with 1.5 inch long alum feet. thats why 4 stars not 5.
Summary: Overall it's a great case but just hope you don't get unlucky like me.
Pros: Great space and easy to organize and install hardware and I really love the handle on top.
Cons: The treading for the screws on the case is terrible. it is impossible to screw the case's side panels on making it a incredible chore to open the case for maintenance. The holes in the side panels doesn't even align properly. I thought it was bearable but after some months it just slowly gets mor...
Summary: My computer Specs: MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77x-UD5H CPU: Intel i5 3570K GPU: EVGA GTX 770 4GB "04G-P4-3774-KR" PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i SSD: Crucial M4 512GB SSD HDD:...
Pros: This Thing is a truly amazing case! I was able to fit all my computer hardware inside of it! And if anyone is wondering about the H100i water cooler with this thing... Yes, It does work.. I mounted the h100i on the top and put the fans on the inside with a pull config. Works great and keeps all m...
Cons: The one and only thing is... I wish I could mount the radiator and the fans on the inside of the case! None-the-less.. It's an awesome case
Pros: Thinks I like about it 1. Bottom mounted power supply 2. Removable hard drive side plate for larger 3d cards. 3. lots of mounts for case fans and liquid cooling.. 4. top mounted power button no more bending over trying to find my power button. 5. Room to put your excess power cables/slack.
Summary: Solid case, order a couple extra fans just in case. If you get lucky and all yours work you can stick them in one of the many extra mounting points.
Pros: Great size, fits everything for a moderate enthusiast but could be too large for some depending on planned use. Color is consistent and bright throughout the case, good build quality, feels well constructed. Easy to work with, plenty of space for most cpu coolers but if may want to measure for cl...
Cons: Both front fans DOA. Should have expected it reading other reviews here, not worth RMAing over, the shipping would outweigh the cost of just ordering a couple fans. Been a big fan of CM products but may look to other brands next build.
Summary: This doesn't ruin my impression of the case. It was just a bit of a disappointment. I still stand by my original review, which was that this case is amazing. I mounted two intake fans on the side panel, and one exhaust on the top. My temps are down a solid 10 C now, and I'm still very happy.
Pros: Overall an awesome case, see my other review!
Cons: I posted a glowing review earlier after building my system. Today I went to install some extra fans and found a few things that I thought might be noteworthy to future purchasers. I installed an aftermarket CPU cooler (TPC 612) and now the top fan just BARELY fits in. We're talking less than 1/4"...
