Summary: Hopefully i get this problem fixed but otherwise this case is awesome. I just installed a H100i GTX in the top bay.
Pros: Great Size and build. For the price you cant beat this build quality. I have build at least 10 PCs over the years and this has been one of the best cases compared to others in its price range.
Cons: Recently I have noticed the front USB 3.0 ports don't have enough power to support my portable hard drive during large file transfers. Fro example when I plug in my Samsung S2 Portable 1 tb drive and start transferring a large movie the drive will disconnect form the pc after 30 seconds and then ...
The layout and design of the case is amazing. My only problem with the case is that ...

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...
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: 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.
nice case, wish i would have gotten a smaller lighter and cheaper one

Summary: It is a nice case but the cheapo fans that came with it rattle sometimes. Also the top part of the case where a water cooler radiator goes has a removable top that clicks in like a button to secure itself.
Picked this for its looks, impressed with function

Summary: The power light is huge and can be annoying in a dark room when the computer is sleeping.
Pros: Fans are really quiet. You need to be in a perfectly silent room to hear them. Good temps. I think the air intake is through the bottom of the case? Way more customization than I needed. Really great looking case, especially if you have innards you want to show off.
Cons: Be careful moving this beast. It is easy to detach something by accident. The front panel comes off, the top panel comes off, the bottom dust tray comes off.
Pros: alot of room on the inside good air flow, their is a light in the rear io where everything plugs in which is nice
Cons: Fans went to heck about 9-10 months i clean my case weekly with an air compressor and i lock the fans in place but they started making this awful grinding noise also if u are using a amd mobo and are planning on using a stock cpu cooler u have to mount the back befor you put the mobo in the case ...
Summary: One thing I bought this case for was to keep the dust down. I saw in reviews it had the filters, but in practice, it's poorly designed.. The bottom black part in the front is a huge section where there is air input that the filter doesn't cover.
Summary: Although I purchased this case from a competitor, I felt a need to react to some of the negative feedback here. After 6 months of the automated ticket system, I finally got some human activity for a side panel replacement as mine was damaged. After all that, they sent the wrong one.
Pros: I purchased the case as a replacement for a mid-tower of theirs. I was simply running out of room. The functionality, and design concepts of this case provide room and air to run high performance with little stress. Hats off to the design group.The light in the back is a great idea!
Cons: product support looks and feels great. Over 6 months to get a conclusion and it was the wrong one. Check it out completely and take advantage of the retailer for rma considerations.
