  • Summary: would buy this again
  • Pros: sturdy as a brick house, all the space you need, vents very well, quality built, quality steel, comes with some fans. quiet!!!
  • Cons: not very pretty, and not a con to me, but some may see it as one - this puppy is HEAVY - other side of being so sturdy and solid.

20 July 2015
  • Summary: again support took this the extra mile i recommend them to my friends
  • Pros: large case, many HDD slots, quite. fantastic support ... I had emailed them to see if I could buy a new usb header, I had broken the one on top of the case, cable wrapped around my leg walking away from it... they replaced it free of charge ... had sent the wrong part then sent the correct one ov...
  • Cons: i guess if i had to name one, there is a slot between the two sections, bottom and top that has a removable tray it would be nice if it were easier to mount a fan there

AMAZING CASE

John W., Newegg
12 March 2013
  • Pros: Oh Wow, I don't know where to begin. This case is very quiet and built to last a lifetime. Honestly, the metal is so thick and the lining so well done that it might save you from an EMP, not guaranteeing that, but, inside a Faraday Cage this will certainly not be the one that caught a tracer.
  • Cons: HDD installs are the new 'backwards' method and cable routing is fine, but took me a bit of time to figure out, not a real negative, but I want to be fair.

  • Summary: This is a nice case. I got this version instead of version 2 because it has more hard drive spots. this is my first experience with Fractal-Design and I will most definitively buy from them again.
  • Pros: Lots of Room Plenty of air movement from fans Looks nice
  • Cons: none

Case built for Quality!!

Leonel T., Newegg
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Definitely would purchase this case again!! I recommend it if you want a cool full tower case that wont disturb any sleep at night!!
  • Pros: When the delivery man handed me my package the first i noticed was the weight!! I rushed to open it up like a Christmas gift to myself!! An amazing case!! you can feel how well this case is built just holding the side panels! i love the fact that the HDD trays can turn to suit your like! USB 3.0!...
  • Cons: This is the only gripe i have, i wish the power button would have been put on the inner door panel to help avoid an accidental shutdown.

Great looking, heavy

Reid R., Newegg
28 January 2013
  • Pros: Very heavy, good looking, great sound deadening. Not good for cooling. Layout is pretty decent, has lots of holes to snake wires through so you can keep them hidden.
  • Cons: Big and heavy.

Amazing case

Michael A., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Summary: This is the best case and my favorite case so far (and I have built a decent amount of computers)... and for the price this is a steal. This case is built like other companies $300 cases. Hopefully Fractal Design doesn't catch on and raise the price. If you are on the fence, buy it.
  • Pros: 1. This case has great airflow, which is surprising because it does not have any fans on top. They instead angled a fan on the top that actually blows out the back, and this works better in my opinion. The front fans ( I added more) bring in a lot of air. 2.Very quiet, the side panels are heavy a...
  • Cons: 1. Not a lot of room for liquid cooling. I have a CPU water cooling set up with a 120mm fan and it fits great. Anything larger and there really isn't room. 2.Not really a negative for me, but this is a pretty heavy case.

I can finally sleep comfortably

Benjamin N., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: When looking for a computer case, my first criteria was that it was quiet enough so that if I lay down in my bed next to the box, the light and sound would not disrupt me. This case turns the loud droning of most other cases to a light whisper, assuming your hard drive is not seeking like crazy.
  • Pros: Quiet, spacious, dark, geometrically simple, sleek. It has all sorts of cool features inside such as ways to route your cables and easily swap-able hard drive mounts. The fans are all located in neat places which I would assume gives it pretty good ventilation. The outside is very simple but stil...
  • Cons: I had some trouble utilizing the holes throughout the case for powering all my peripherals. I had to cheat in a few places. Besides that I am overjoyed with my case.

AWESOME CASE!

Todd C., Newegg
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Ok so there are a few thoughts on this. 1. make sure you buy cable extentions at least 10in+ in size. 2. Make sure you have good Sata power connections and not just the standard PSU cables because when you mount your HDDs the way the cable sits and bends wont fit if you try to chain HDDs. 3.
  • Pros: Ok no questions asked, best case for the money whether on sale or not. Tons of space great cable management, fans, and fan mounts everywhere. Solid build, quiet supports 10 HDDs!
  • Cons: doesnt pay my rent.
