Great case to build with, some shipping and lighting problems.

Summary: This case is great, easy to set up and to build with. It fit my Asus Z97-A with little room to spare but it got the job done. Being able to remove unused hard drive bays was a nice feature and allowed me to fit my 970 inside. Also having removable front and top panels is great for installing extra fans or all in one water cooling systems.
Summary: I would recommend this case. It does look pretty sweet.
Pros: I think this is an all around good case. I would only recommend if you can find it on sale. -Decent Cable management -Good Air Flow -Looks amazing -Feels larger that other ATX Mid towers -Quality materials
Cons: -Front panel doesn't always fit around DVD drives (You might need to do some Falcon Punches to get it to fit) -Was missing a few screw holes for my mother board -Top air vent was a bit loose and rattled quite a lot (Nothing that superglue cant fix though)

Summary: It was exactly what I wanted in a mid-tower case. The three stock fans it comes with aren't the best but they do their job fine and it's got enough room for water cooling should you ever wish to do so. The HDD/SDD slots are really easy to take out and slide back in and most importantly it has the proper air flow and cable management I was looking for.
Summary: Overall, a great case besides some minor flaws. But if I'm already spending $100 on a mid ATX case, I expect it to be spectacular. Otherwise I might as well just get a full tower with that money.
Pros: Thought it's a full tower when I opened the box, but it is indeed a mid ATX tower. I love the design, color (gunmetal), and the feel of it.
Cons: - power and reset button: like what some of the other reviewers said, the power and reset button is quite small, and does require some precision and force when pressing. Would definitely make everything easier if it's bigger - White LED lighting: just personal preference, but either blue or red would have made it look better. White LED just looks cheap. - the flap that opens to where you insert the CD ROM drive is kind of hard to open. Almost impossible to open it wit...
Summary: I normally wouldn't buy a case with the door on the front, but who actually used their DVD/blu-ray drive for anything?
Pros: It's big, but not to big, and has space for lots of fans. It comes with three fans, but they have white LEDs. I've replaced them with fans with red LEDs. The Case has a removable center HD cage, but is so big you don't even need to remove it for an MSI GTX 980.
Cons: The instructions were small, and hard to understand. The rubber grummets don’t stay in place well, and the built in 3 speed fan controller is meh, in particular if your Mobo has a cool fan controller setup built in.
Summary: I got the case because I saw that it had lots of room for expansion and it was in a gunmetal finish. Great build quality except for two things. 1) The front panel on my case was way too easy for me to pull off right out of the box 2) The locking mechanism for the cover for the optical drives became faulty Other than that, I love the case
Great case, hard to install 240 mm liquid cooling system though.

Summary: Fantastic case. Very customizable when it comes to fan placement and it looks amazing. It does come with a blue strip led fan that is originally placed on the top part of the case(above mobo) and a blue led in the clear space next to the power controls. I don't know if it was just my cooler, but the Seidon 240m by cooler master is extremely difficult to place in the case and is probably the most difficult item to install.
Summary: Overall a good looking, sturdy case with few issues and should make the average builder pretty happy, but their are better options for this price range though they may not look as edgy.
Pros: This case is solid, not easily scratchable, and I have seen worse dust collectors in my time. Airflow is very good, lots of water or air cooling options, sturdy back plane for motherboard mounting, and plenty of cable routing options.
Cons: Only a few issues. The window is mounted on twisted clips that allow it to rattle, this is easily solved with some silicon or rubber. The power supply cable routing options are not quite up to snuff, larger holes would have made this build look a little cleaner and faster to put together. And the side air vent for GPU cooling seems to be benign, additional noise without cooling benefit.
