Summary: Great Case. Decided to use this on my newest editing machine. (HD and 4K video) Mounted a Corsair H100i to the top vent and it works perfectly. Very quiet case even with 5 fans, a double radiator, brand new i7, 3 drives, a monster video card with its own dual fan cooling system among other items.
Summary: I absolutely love this case. Very quiet, extremely spacious, and well built. From the outside, it is a no frills case, but on the inside there is ample room for components, multiple cooling options, and sound dampening properties that I honestly didn't think would work that well, but they do. My only gripe is the front bezel. I am not sure if I received a defective one, but it doesn't really swing open the way I would like.
Summary: Here is what I crammed into it. Asus Sabertooth Z87. Intel i7-4770K Cpu. Corsair Water-Cooler 100i. "Reading previous reviews, I didn't use the Corsair Fans, Instead I used 2 Noctua NF-F12 Fans" 32 Gigs of Corsair Vengeance.. My old GTX 560i, Corsair 750 Watts P/S It was a little tight to hide all the wires in the back of it. I wish it had a little more spaces. But overall this case is very quiet.
Summary: For a long time, I had a Lian Li silver-coloured aluminium case. It has served me well through 4 builds over about 7 years. It was a super-nice case, classic in design, light, quiet - and in principle, a case is a case, can survive many rounds of upgrades, and could possibly last forever - until the time comes when you have to admit it's time to retire it. So what's wrong with my old case?
Very quite, Plenty of Space, and Easy to Build with
1 September 2013
Summary: This case is very quite and looks good too. It is a bit on the large side so building with it was very easy. I really liked the hardware they used. They provide you with these pull out sleds for harddrives that allow 2.5" drives to be directly connected to (no need for a converter). This is useful is you are getting an SSD which are hard to get in 3.5" anymore. Cable management on this case is very easy and very nice.
Summary: Great case, even if it's a bit expensive. I don't know if the sound dampening actually does anything, but the PC is pretty quiet as long as I don't make the fans kick into high gear. Lots of expansion, easy to install drives (four SSD!), and easy to route the cables.
Cons: After about a year of switching/removing the aluminum front door, a catch on one side finally broke. So I can only attach the door on the right side now. My fault mostly though, the tower is located in a high traffic area...btw, with 2 kids under 4...any area in the house is a high traffic area :P
Summary: One of the things you should know when using this case: it actually has a bunch of features that make it much easier to build a new PC. However, these features differ from most other cases so if you're building your first computer and trying to follow a general "build-a-PC" video or guide, this case will confuse you a lot. 1. You should not screw in any risers for the motherboard.
