For the reviewer below...

  • Summary: Better a late review than none at all, lol.
  • Pros: Even though it's been 3 years since the guy below wrote his review I am going to correct him. The side doors are rough texture and were from the 1st day you built your system. They came that way. The fact that you did not notice it seems incredible. Anyway, I bought the case in 2010 and the front...
  • Cons: Price. Case does have some plastic and many have had door issues, I was just lucky enough to have avoided it.

Well worth the investment

  • Summary: Asus Sabertooth 990fx FX-8120 4.0 Ghz zalman cnps 9900max 16GB Gskill Sniper Memory 2 Gigabyte SOC GTX 470's 1000W XFX pro series PSU 2 Adata 120GB SSD's raid 0 1TB Segate Storage drive.
  • Pros: The vertical motherboard mount is awesome it keeps my 2 Gigabyte SOC GTX470's running in SLI cooler than most would expect they run about 75 C under full load. My FX-8120 oc'd to 4.0Ghz with a zalman cooler runs at about 50 C under full load. This case is whisper quiet and no temps are over 55 C....
  • Cons: Only con would be if you use any video adapter's dvi to hdmi etc... you may not have enough space to use them. Not a con at all for me just something I noticed.

  • Pros: These earphones are amazing. They fit comfortably in your ears. I had these things in for over 3 hours and felt no discomfort at all. The bass is pretty epic also. Buy these!
  • Cons: Only con is the foam covers are too big for my ears.

Fantastic Case

Zachary H., Newegg

  • Summary: I was a little disappointed with the airflow at first, but I found that there was a lot of air being re-circulated back into the bottom compartment along the doors and through the cable pass through in the deck.
  • Pros: Well thought out case, can provide excellent airflow. Rotated motherboard greatly reduces the torsional stress that heavy graphics cards place on the mobo. Very roomy with well though out cable management options.
  • Cons: Front door sucks. Space behind mobo is a bit cramped, so even though the cable management is good, it takes some careful planning to fit everything neatly behind the tray for a really clean set up. Definitely nothing worth knocking an egg off, as this is by far the best designed / built case I ha...

Worth every cent

  • Summary: Just because you know how to put a computer together all by yourself doesn't mean your tech level is or should be a 5. Learn how to spell and learn proper english and then maybe people would believe that you know what you're talking about. GET THIS CASE.
  • Pros: Just wow. It looks absolutely amazing. It's huge. Side window is wicked. Front drawer is awesome. Removeable bays are awesome. The whole thing oozes stealth fighter jet. Thankfully the door hasn't broke on me yet though I am expecting it to based on other reviews.
  • Cons: Cable management is pretty bad. Not a whole lot of room to do anything with it. The motherboard blocks the two holes on the left side and all of them are too small to fit any cord bigger than a molex plug through. The worst part is, despite the cases' size, I can't fit two Asus GTX 580 DCUII card...

best case ever

  • Summary: mobo: ASUS KGPE-D16 Heatsink: Noctua NH-U9DO Graphics: EVGA GTX 580
  • Pros: Does fit my SSI EEB motherboard, - was missing 2 holes for it however but easily fixed with a few rubber stoppers - i am all air cooled - have had bad experiences with water cooling. I have never had a processor run so cool, currently running at 26c and graphics at 35c, which i believe is mostly ...
  • Cons: due to the top of the case, you wont be able to use any adapters on (dvi to analog) or anything that sticks out to far, but its easy to get around

  • Summary: This case is fantastic. It looks amazing and is absolutely gigantic. I adore the motherboard twist and do not understand why others have not done this. It was really easy to install. The front panel is noisy but I dont use it that much and it has yet to break on me.
  • Pros: Looks fantastic Easy to install Love the motherboard twist Huge Love the front panel design
  • Cons: None

Absolutely fantastic

Tyler B., Newegg
1 July 2011
  • Summary: Despite the cons I listed, this case still serves as an example for what other manufacturers should be striving for. No stone was left unturned here, from the small things like the rubber grommeted screw holes on the hard drive cages to the big stuff like the rotated motherboard tray and radical...
  • Pros: +Excellent attention to detail from top to bottom +Stock cooling is amazingly quiet and effective due to the rotated motherboard tray +Huge,huge and huge. Seriously, it dwarfs my old Gigabyte 3D aurora by comparison +Did I mention how quiet this thing is? +Aesthetics +Ease of installation +Very r...
  • Cons: -The door that I mentioned earlier, yeah it sounds like someones dumping a bag of gravel down a flight of steel stairs. -with a standard ATX motherboard 2 of the cable management slots are located under the board itself i.e; useless -Fairly limited space behind the motherboard for routed cables I...

  • Pros: This is roomy, lots of Metal..

Checking back in 6 months later.

  • Summary: (continued from cons) - Some devices with built-in cables will require extensions (think internal memory card devices) - Cables from the top panel USB/Sound ports (under the flip-up door) will be barely long enough depending on where you have free space on your motherboard.
  • Pros: I still love this case. There is a ton of room to work inside of this beast. Handles any size component you can toss at it pretty much. Everything I said in my previous review holds true. - I've got some niggling points I'll go into in the cons section but my overall feeling about the case is sti...
  • Cons: So since I own this thing now, and have worked with it for going on 6 months, I'll throw some things out there that have been part of my experience. -So I customized the top just a bit to put two fans for the exhaust in a push/pull configuration. I had to mod the top cover just a bit with a saw.....
