Summary: After having lived with this thing for a while, I feel I can make pretty good judgment on it's merits. First, I've read many comments here in the review section about the size, weight and propensity for using plastic to judge this case.
Beauty on the outside, because my beast is inside.

Summary: You cannot go wrong with this case, it will make any build look phenomenal. Thumbs up NZXT as this is my first NZXT buy.
Pros: This case is completely beautiful. There is a great deal of customization that can be done with it. I like the snap on/off front and top molds, makes tinkering with a cable here and there much easier and faster.
Cons: The only con I have really is that, while the cable management is still great, the side panel is still plastic, so it can be harder to get that panel back on as opposed to a coolermaster HAF X where it is steal and you can force the cables back in with ease, this one I worry will eventually begin...

Summary: The layout and design of the case is amazing. My only problem with the case is that the build quality is lower than expected. Several of the screw holes are slightly misaligned or too small, so if you were unscrew some of the parts, such as the removable plate for the optical drive bay, it becomes...
Summary: - would have loved to have this case to be about two inches taller to accommodate larger radiators and a 140mm fan near the back I/O panel. - I hope they come out with something this sleek and sexy again...not a fan of the "white spaceship" look of the 820..
Pros: - Huge dimensions, can fit any size motherboard/ GPU /and even a 420mm Radiator for liquid cooling - Fits multiple radiators - Can mount up to 12 fans to this beast - sleek, simple sexy design. - huge amount of cable management space in rear of chassis. provides rubber-ized slits/holes to conceal...
Cons: - front I/O usb 3,0 isn't as fast as most motherboard usb 3.0 - front panel ventilation is poor. NZXT does allow users to mount (2) 120mm or 140mm fans here on the front but there is very little ventilation screens/openings to let cold air in. I will say that they did make an effort though. there...
Overall decent case, but you can do better for your money

Summary: Overall it's not a bad case, but I wouldn't recommend it. Unless you really need this much space, then your money is best spent elsewhere.
Pros: So this case is HUGE and HEAVY, but it seems all the other reviews have made that clear. The amount of space in this case is really awesome for enthusiasts who want dual graphics cards and water cooling and whatnot, and promotes great airflow for those without water cooling. The aluminum chassis ...
Cons: So my biggest complaint is all the plastic pieces on this tower. They feel very flimsy and super cheap in their construction. Along with that, both me and my friend who own this case had the exact same problems with a couple things. First off, the power button on this case (made of plastic surpri...
Pros: -strong reliable parts for the most part (see cons) -plenty of room for upgrading. I have 600mm total push/pull radiators (360 top mounted and a 240 front mounted) in mine with no space problems.
Cons: -The plastic window on the only really cheap part of this case in my opinion. It scratched very easily and had a slight tint of haze looking through it. I went to my local Lowes and picked up an acrylic window from their store, cut it to size, and used modders tape to hold it in place. Much more ...
Summary: This is a beautiful Tower if you have the room and can take the weight.
Pros: Enormous, have 2 X 295x2's and an XL Board with a water cooler (that's 3 coolers including the 295X2's), a 1500W Power supply and 13 total fans, most of which are 140mm and everything fits with room to spare. I have push/pull setups on the fans and sometimes it's 3 fans together!
Cons: Enormous, weighs a lot but that's to be expected with all that I have in it.
Summary: The plastics feel kinda flimsy but not enough for me to call a con as I didn't have a problem with them. The removable dust filter for the front 2 fans restricts quite a lot of air but that I believe is my fans problem of not being the best fans.
Pros: Case is HUGE but you probably already knew that based on it being a full tower case. Comes with an individually sleeved 8 pin CPU power cable extension which is nice because my PSU's would not have reached plus it looks good. Leaves lots of room for expandability. Fit my Gigabyte GTX 970 which is...
Cons: The Rear I/O LEDs have gotten dim and are flickering, not a huge problem because I never found them useful. One of the front fans started to make noise then it decided to launch a fan blade one day. Could use more 5.25 bays.
Pros: This case has good intentions for both AIR/WC options for all enthusiasts. Cool color Black and White finish looks clean. They came out with the H440 but still needs a lot of work compared to Caselabs or Silverstone. The dust filters are decent but also far from perfect.
Cons: Where to begin....The front intake fan cover does not allow for needed inflow/take into the case which is needed to create positive pressure for airflow in and outflow/take...No fan filter on the top where most dust gets in the case...falling from in the air and landing on the components inside t...
Decent features for the price but has some quality issues
9 February 2015
Summary: Bought this case about a year and a half ago for a watercooled gaming build because it was able to fit both a 360mm and 240mm radiator internally along with a few internal 3.5" bays for my HDDs and external 5.25" and was under $200.
