Summary: Lots of people complain about airflow in the top compartment, there's a slot for another 120mm fan there, I happened to have one and I set it up in a push/pull through the case. Stays nice and cool in that configuration, can't say for stock though.
Pros: quiet, pretty sturdy, looks nice, lots of hard drive slots
Cons: the front bezel feels a little cheap. Probably because it's aluminum attached to plastic. Cable management is very tight in the back with a big power supply.
Summary: Very nice case overall. I'm just a little bit worried about breaking both the door (since it only flips out 90 degrees instead of 180 to lay flat against the case) and the top flip-up port door. I drop a single egg for these, but otherwise, this is a very nice case for any build. File servers?
Pros: Nice, solid build, no sharp edges anywhere, roomy, absurd amount of HDD bays, acoustically padded.
Cons: Front panel only opens 90 degress, could be easy to break. Metal tabs on the HDD trays seem flimsy. Top flip-up ports access seems a little flimsy too.
Pros: Massive! Quiet! Foam! This thing can hold 9 hard drives as is. 6 external 5.25 drive bays that can hold 10 more hard drives using two 5 bay hotswap cages. I have this server in my bedroom and i can sleep at night. The case is lined with foam to help keep things quiet. Best server tower for the money
Cons: To add a hotswap bay you have to modify the plastic screw-less mounts (you have to break the small tab at the base of each side in order to fit anything over the height of 1 bay)
Summary: I am in the process of doing a complete upgrade my first acquisition was this case though I bought it directly from NZXT I am seriously happy with it. I did end up disabling the primary LED because I sleep in the same room as my computer otherwise it is very dark and quiet just how I wanted it.
Pros: Very quiet. Very easy to use and installation is extremely easy. The cable management is both well done and helpful. Plenty of airflow though the spot where my CPU is gets rather warm even on the outside of the case.
Cons: For some the size maybe though if you are getting a full tower then you should be expecting a larger footprint. There are no quick connects for pci/pci-e slots, though I normally would use the screws anyways.
Summary: It just feels like this case is sitting in the middle of the road. It doesn't have the features or cooling for its price, but is better built then many cheaper cases. On the other hand the only real silent features are sound damping foam which you can pick up for about $12-15 bucks and and to a...
Pros: Its well built and a good choice for silent computing. Would be a great looking office computer when you need something visually pleasing but not flashy and despite what I'm about to say in the con's is still a great case.
Cons: Paint finish not great at a closer look and seems to lack many of the features that cases in its price range. On top of that the stock cooling is lacking as well with the intake fan in the bottom chamber with 2x80mm fans exhausting while the main camber only comes with a 120mm set up as exhaust. ...
Summary: Price seems ok for this case. You are getting what you pay for here for sure. Not a bad deal at all. I definitely recommend this to anybody who wants to have a nice full ATX case and be able to hide some nice hardware in there. You can make a nice "Sleeper" out of this one!
Pros: This is a decently sturdy case. It is extremely quiet also if you have a nice aftermarket cpu cooler. I really enjoy the conservative styling on the front bezel. Also... it lacks a window on the side, this is also a plus as it does not look like a kids computer! :)
Cons: Although it is a full ATX case (and I have not owned one in a while, I may just not be used to this)... this sucker is heavy! Not to say that it is a bad quality. This is nothing to be hauling around all of the time(as my friends manage to convince me to do for lan parties each weekend)!
Summary: I was really hoping this would be a nice case, but I have just come across too many design flaws I wouldn't event expect from a cheap case company. The most egregious by far is the sideways facing HDD racks.
Pros: Lots of internal /+ HDD space. Drive racks have mounting for both 2.5" & 3.5" Drives. Magnetic swing door is a cool novelty. Thumb Screws on main access side panel. (But not the other side behind the tray?)
Cons: Poorly designed. No real cable management, despite what is claimed. Bottom front fan is NOT 120mm as claimed. I think its a 140mm. 5.25" Bay covers are extremely hard to pry off. Barely fit my Noctua HSF attached to mobo inside while mounting. POWER LED - I almost went blind when I turned the uni...
Summary: the case feels cheap right out of the box.. mine (like others mentioned here) arrived with a broken pop up door on top. But what really annoyed me was the blue light on the front, which i thought i would love, but this one is soooo bright i couldnt look directly at it without hurting my eyes...
Cons: flimsy construction. poor air flow. heavy. not so quiet.
Summary: I think some mentioned the issues with the SATA power connections to the hard drives. I also ran into this problem, but have a perfect/easy solution. I actually needed SATA power splitters since my power supply did not have enough SATA rails.
Pros: Absolutely amazing case! I don’t usually write reviews, but this product is worth a great one! This case has plenty of space, and is super quiet. I was concerned about using this in a media center setup at first, but thanks to the good styling and quite operation - there are no complaints there.
Cons: As many others mention – I added a 120mm fan to the factory designed space at the front of the case for the MB/CPU area. Mine still seems a tad hotter than I would prefer with the cheap-o 120mm fans, but its tolerable. I also find the blue LEDs to be overly bright. A few layers of some very metic...
