Summary: This is the best case I've ever owned (I have two of them), and I've owned over 20. I love how there is a design convergence toward mounting hard drives sideways in the case - it makes taking them in and out much easier, something that I do much more than I would have thought a long time ago.
Pros: Well made, heavy gauge aluminum, mostly tool-less, clean design, side-installed hard drive bays, good sound insulation, easy top and bottom motherboard access, 120mm hard drive cooling fan.
Cons: Cable routing options could be a little better, hard drive fan filter is difficult to clean, hard drive cage retainer is awkward and difficult to install.
Summary: This is the classiest looking case I've ever laid my eyes on.
Pros: - Great build quality. - Quiet - This case comes with quieting materials not included on my other Lian Li case. - Able to fit my 5870GPU and 850W PS no problems. - One sexy beast!
Cons: - The third fan CANNOT be utilized if you are using more than two 5.25 drives. - The intake fan filter is a major pain to remove. (8 screws) - The motherboard hole for cable management isn't in the best location.
Summary: This case is billed as Quiet I hope so. This is a case upgrade and will slowly change out the noise y offenders.
Pros: Great looking case appears well built. Shipped USPS on time and no damage to box :) Just installed Corsair P/S 850HX sweet, checked out operation of all tool less slots and like the designs. Waiting on CPU cooler to come.
Cons: Per the instruction I had to remove 8 screws to remove front grill to access dust filters, factory forgot to install filter, I hope New Egg helps me get a replacement? The 2 USB slots on top of case are to close together, can only use 1 at a time. I can live with that!
Excerpt: Всем корпус хорош, кроме верхней несемной крышки. Точнее болты на которых она крепится к корпусу открутить можна, но при этом саму крышку снять не получается. И кроме люфта в 1-1,5 см. ничего добится за 2 часа не смог. Может у меня руки кривые и у кого получится ее снять не ламая корпус.
Pros: качество материалов, вибро- и звукопоглощающие элементы, безвинтовые крепления.
