Summary: Great case. Extremely well made and very adaptable. Silverstone must have had Artists and Technicians designing this case. I built this for my GF and now I want to keep it lol. I will hold on to it and "test it" for a while. Beautiful with tons of options. Just the right size. Not huge and not too small. Cable management is not easy but it's worth the time. I spent a lot of time on cable management and it came out great.
Summary: Great build quality looks nice and all that stuff. If you're looking for a case to keep in your living room to play games at ultra settings for the next five years I would look else where. For gaming you're going to need enough room to support a larger video card. This case will support a beast of a card but it will also sacrifice a lot of room for cables, as well as, at least, one of the 3.5 drive spaces.
Awesome case! I have 7 hard drives installed (still ...

Summary: Awesome case! I have 7 hard drives installed (still have room for 2 more), 7 Noctua fans throughout the case and CPU heat sink (also from Silverstone, bought separately), and the case still just makes a slight bearable hum in my living room. I don't even notice the hum while watching TV. The huge pros: Looks great in my living room, has room for lots of hard drives (I have an 11 TB raid 5 setup), and gives you lots of room inside for a huge CPU heat sink/fan setup.
Summary: When the product arrived there was black paint over-spray all over the outer chassis(top and sides). The cooling fans only register in BIOS as working about 50% of the time preventing regular boot. SilverStone customer service via email is slow and unresponsive. If it weren't for me following up on every email I sent them, they wouldn't write back at all. I first initiated dialogue May 3 and they haven't followed through yet, it's almost August.
Pros: On the positive side, other people probably won't have as bad of an experience with SilverStone
Cons: Black factory paint over-spray all over the top and sides of the chassis, Cooling fans don't operate properly, Very poor customer service-no resolution May3-July 20/present
Summary: I really like this case. It is big, but to be honest with you some of the cables had a very tight squeeze fitting them in. I am only using an ATX mother board and this case says it can handle a extended ATX. So why do I like it. It has lots of fans and is extremely quiet. I use my computer to record and the mic used to pick up the sound of my old cases fans. This one is very quiet. It is well built.
Summary: It IS very big (pay attention to it's size) but it can fit almost anything you want into it. Good build quality, a little cramped inside but that may be my big hands. I did have some trouble getting the PSU inside, but was able to get it to fit and for all I know that is the fault of the PSU.
Great case and the locking front keeps my 14 month old son out of it.

Summary: So far this has turned out to be the best computer case I have ever purchased. Also the most expensive one. When I bought it I had a baby on the way and was turning my computer into a media center and gaming machine. I new with my son on the way I would need something that I could lock up and hide the wires. This turned out to be perfect and provides a nice look in the living room. People are amazed that its actually and high end computer inside it.
Summary: Pros: - Pretty. Cons: - Specs range from half-truths to blatant lies. EATX mobo? Heh...only if you don't want drives. 13.5" cards? Not if they have an auxiliary power connection. - A single monolithic drive cage, attached with 6 screws (with 2 different types! WTF?!), that needs to be completely removed to do *any* drive reconfiguring. This requires disconnecting *all* drives in the case to make one change.
