Summary: The case arrived a couple days early in the factory packaging and in good shape. Only negative was that one of the panel thumb screws had absolutely 0 grip serrations on it. Guess it slipped through QC. Pros: -very roomy, lots of room for large conponents and lots of routing holes for cable management.

Summary: I love that it has a button to control the fan's LEDs, I used to have one without it, and I had to cut the wires to the LEDs, because they were freaking annoying, in fact these are OK because of the front panel covering most of the light, I actually leave them ON. It took me about 20 minutes to install everything. The only downside is that the Hard Disk trays are very fragile, they could have used a more resistant material.
Summary: Couple details to mention on this case. Pros: - Plenty of space (more than I actually needed) - Good air flow as front, back, top, bottom and sides are all perforated. - Love the places to tuck cables in behind the motherboard, etc. - ATX motherboard lined up perfectly - 3 included fans and front 2 have LEDs to see that they are running - No need for tools. Case has thumb screws. Drive bays are slide in/out and have holes to attach 2.5" SSDs.
Summary: For the most part I love this case. The side panels come off and go back on very easy and the drive bays are easy to use as well. The appearance is attractive, solid case fans (3 come with), and although you can't see it in the pictures there is a great handle at the top of the case for moving it. One frustrating problem is all over the inside of the case are these pointy globs of metal that appear to be from where it has been spot welded.
Summary: Like the title states, this case has great cable management. The front lights can be turned on or off by a button on the front...now this is great for folks that don't want a bunch of blinking shining lights on their case; especially since this is my HTPC. It has great cooling, and room for fans and a CPU water cooler. It's not a ACTs 840, but it works for what I needed.

Summary: This is a great case but I ran into one game stopper with the Asus Sabertooth Z87 motherboard. The USB 3 header on that board is on the edge. The motherboard sits in a recess. When the front USB 3 cable is plugged into the header and you tighten down the motherboard screws pressure is placed on the end of the cable. The end of the USB cable ended up breaking off because of the pressure.
Summary: This mid tower box it a very strong and sturdy with plenty of air vents and space to place more fans. It also has a good cable organizer. Very good box, but be prepared to wait for it, and be careful, the paint may still be wet when you get it off the box. I will recommend this article to others.
Summary: Bought this case for a new build from Amazon.com. Some things were a problem like the case wiring from the top 2 USB 3.0 connector would not fit the pins on my Asus motherboard or the sound connector... It's easy to mount the hard-drives and CD/DVD with room for power supply and main board. One other problem with the rear fan power connector is a 3 pin most newer main boars have a 4 pin for speed control. So had to change out the fan.
Summary: I bought this case to build my second computer. Overall it's a great case with plenty of room for airflow and nice cable management too. The LED fans on the front are a nice touch. I took off a star because the sides feel a bit flimsy, especially compared to my 650D case, but it isn't a major problem. Also the side vents do not have a filter.
