Summary: accidentally broke some of the extension card retainer tabs trying to put in the graphics card.
Pros: looks great. easy on the eyes and has a nice new age look to it temperature probes for the system, CPU, and HDD cost less than other competitors amazing air flow
Cons: the instructions that come with are useless for a first time builder like me. I recommend that this case should not even come with instructions, they were that bad. the temperature readout went out after two days on mine the cable management is very tight and almost impossible to fit behind the motherboard
Summary: Ok so there are mixed pictures on here the case I received had all black wiring instead of that horrible multi colored mess shown in the pic which is fantastic especially having the window. One picture also shows the side audio ports with pink and green colors and one pic shows them as black.
Pros: Looks way better in person than pictures. Comes with 3 fans 2 with blue leds. Built in temp monitoring for HDD,CPU,SYS thats how they are labeled but you can place them wherever . I have my SYS sensor on my VRMs. Solid case came with everything working.
Cons: Cable management is terrible it's the reason I knocked an egg off. Had a hard time getting back panel back on as there is pretty much no space behind mobo tray. PSU screws are silver wish they were black.
Pros: This case seemed like there was more complicated things than other cases. Not many holes to put your wires in the back, and the instruction manual was very confusing. For people who are just starting to build computers, this will be quite a challenge. But the overall look is amazing.
Cons: Better manual please!! Also, they give you these temp probes without a thermal tape... so I just ended up not using it, which is a bit of a waste.
Pros: The case is a sleek beautiful design, the stock fan placements help keep my current build under 50C under work load, the built in thermal sensors are a blessing because I can monitor my temp to make sure it's not getting too hot during my weekend long gaming sessions. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants a good case for under $75 without fear of quality because this one is top notch.
Cons: No cons so far the only thing I would make a note of is the front piece that opens up to the drive bays seems a bit cheap but beyond that I have no issue.
Summary: Really good body. It is a lot bigger than I expected and far heavier. However, it is made of steel, so it makes sense. It looks truly amazing all lit up, and the fans are so silent. It has three temperature readouts on the front panel, which show the CPU, HDD, and ambient temperature, great for monitoring everything. Make sure everything is connected right. The first time I set it up, the LED on the front didn't light up.
Great Case. Couple minor issues that may have just been my wrong doing.

Summary: I do love this case. With the size and affordability along with the flashy features. Quite beautiful. This was an upgrade from my single fan small tower. This baby now has 4 fans in it. (Red LED ones of course.) Silent, bright and beautiful, really looks amazing at night. The only reason I am giving it 4/5 is a couple of reason. The case itself is study, kind of heavy but that's no big deal.
