Summary: For those of you looking to possibly do water cooling, H100i (and I am assuming by default that the fan size is the same any other Corsair cooling) won't fit due to the fans being too thick, at least with my ASUS Maximus Hero VII.
Pros: Got my case last night. Seems really nice. Have yet to turn it on though. I spent all afternoon and evening putting the parts in only to find that the water cooling for my processor has some issues (see below.
Cons: Will I will update if I find any once I turn it on but could possible use a little more clearance up top for if someone wants to install water cooling.
Pros: Beautiful case. Looks wonderful. Tons of fans. USB 3.0 :D Many others
Cons: Top 5.25 CD Drive is a pain in the rear to install. The default slot open is the top one, where people typically place their CD/DVD drives. The cases USB 3 header cables hang about an inch down, which blocks the drive. You have to BEND them almost painfully to get the drive to fit, and it's extre...
Summary: The BlackHawk seemed like the case for me when I first got it, and though currently I have no buyers remorse on this, I would like to warn others before jumping into using it. To start off you will notice an extreme lack of organization and thought out placement for the usb wires and other parts for...
Pros: Cheap cost, plenty of space, easy to use, plenty of fans, not to loud.
Cons: Difficult to manage, awkward placement of cords, difficult to close.
Pros: Lovely case. cable management was easy. removable HD trays are amazing for anyone seeking to use a bigger sized graphics card. The lights on fans are nice, and ventilation is not a problem.
Cons: Even with the top HD tray you have to place the Graphics card in the 3rd slot from the top. Not a big problem at all, ventilation is still good. I installed a Hyper 212 EVO and had to take off the fan on the panel with the glass, again not a big problem, I ended up moving the fan to the top and u...
Summary: This is just a well thought out computer case that’s priced extremely well for all that you get. It improved my build time. I would give this case a higher rating if there were more eggs.
Pros: I am completely impressed with this case. It has a well thought out design with the builder in mind. There is plenty of room for a big heatsink. I installed the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and there is room to close the side door with a 120mm fan on it. Actually, the fan is mounted back enough to...
Cons: The harddrive tray pins that go in to the hd screw holes, pop out too easy when your squeezing in the hd. You have to pop out the hd to push them back in. It’s not a big deal though.
Summary: The blue on the outside of the case is not as bright as shown in the pictures, which is a good thing for me. The side fan has to be taken out in order to fit a Cooler Master 212 EVO, not a big deal as I put the fan underneath the DVD drive which provides great airflow. The case is quiet and sturdy.
Pros: 4 Case fans included. Top side access ports are great. Trays for hard drives are fantastic. Great airflow.
Cons: The blue plastic trim feels kind of cheap. Not a lot of room to store cables in the back of the case. Not really a fan of the blue side window, but its not a huge deal.
