Fabulous Case

Jeremy C., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I have a adaptor on the DVI port from the back of my video card, so the top thingy doesn't fit on. But it would work fine with a flexible dongle. Not the case's fault, just a comment. Really it still looks nice up on my desk with out the top.
  • Pros: Short version: This case is great. Long version: I've owned this case for over a year now and i haven't had any reason to complain. I have my dual EVGA 670 SC's and i've never noticed any excessive heat. During gaming, the chip temps rarely exceed 65 degrees. Under full load, this case manages to...
  • Cons: I've really had to stretch for anything to put here. The top case cover thingy (that snaps on and off) seems *slightly* flimsy. Works fine though. Besides that, nothing really.

Love It... with a caveat

Mark M., Newegg
14 August 2014
  • Summary: The power supply positioning caused me some problems. Power cord feeds into the case through the bottom and attaches to your power supply internally via a supplied cable. That cable attaches to your PSU from inside the case at a flush, 90 degree angle.
  • Pros: Love the design, top loaded ports make for super easy access. Also: Really appreciate the filters on the case bottom, should make future dusting that much easier. Full ATX is sooo roomy!
  • Cons: Why is this form field required?

Awesome case, notable flaw

Marc S., Newegg
26 July 2014
  • Pros: The case is very spacious, I like the idea of rotating the mobo 90 degrees, and I like that they are breaking with conventional thought. I don't normally buy things at the cutting edge, for lack of a better phrase, but the configuration just made great sense. It's less stress on the cards and bet...
  • Cons: If you buy this case, be prepared to manage the large holes at the top (you can see what I'm talking about from the photos). Mind you, these ventilation holes are normal for a case, however this is a modified design. Those holes are normally out the BACK of your traditional case, not the TOP. Yes...

nice looking, but over-designed

Anonymous, Newegg
1 June 2014
  • Summary: The cons I listed really never bother me. I haven't thought about any of them since assembling the system, but they should still not be left out of a good review. If you agree with the following, this is likely the case for you in spite of the cons.
  • Pros: vertical orientation of GPU means no sagging & no strain on PCIe slots high quality, thick window two mega-fans blowing air upward are nearly silent and still very effective on low setting room for 11 storage devices USB & audio on top
  • Cons: power supply at the front power supply sideways These two design choices are definitely the worst thing(s) about this, which overall is still a good case. The wiring from one or more of the top USB, audio, and fan speed switches gets in the way of putting an optical drive in the only available 5 ...

Best case I've ever built in

Matthew M., Newegg
18 May 2014
  • Summary: Also happen to think its the best looking case I've ever seen.
  • Pros: Incredible design. I'm not sure why more case manufacturers have adopted this model. The 90 degree rotation makes for an incredibly efficient cooling design. The result is amazing temps, with low fan speeds, and a cleaner case as a result of the lower airflow in combination with the filters. Also...
  • Cons: None. However, if you're not willing to think out your build it may be a little different for someone use to a standard case.

I love it.

Luke S., Newegg
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I had to remove the top fan guard for a push/pull setup to work. I wish the metal for the screw holes was flat instead of round so I might have had enough room to leave it on. I also wish the power cord could exit the top rear with the other wires.
  • Pros: Great airflow design; Having rear panel on the top makes it a lot easier to plug/unplug wires; Filters are good quality; Most wires can be routed behind motherboard plate; Power supply cord was long enough for me, no problems connecting it; Hard drives mount behind motherboard plate and because o...
  • Cons: The filters on the bottom made maneuvering the case awkward during setup; The handle is good quality, but there needs to be a second place to grab in the front. I only see 2 front mounting locations for fans, which are located directly behind the bays. The description says there are 4 total?

Worthy Product with a few Missteps

William S., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: This case has some great things going for it. It's mostly quiet and looks nice, with excellent airflow. I do not regret building in it. The case manual in particular is very good, and even first time builders will have a joy of a time filling this case with hardware.
  • Pros: * Excellent Airflow * Quiet Operation * Fan mount behind CPU * Good cable routing if using long cables * Best manual EVER
  • Cons: * Overall poor build quality * Design features lacking or poorly executed (see below) * Not so good watercooling support * Wasteful front USB ports

Good case

Chris B., Newegg
29 November 2013
  • Pros: its a good case, lots of space, good design, good airflow and easy access usb 3.0,
  • Cons: After about 4 months of owning this case the 2 fans or the fan switches started to malfunction, they will only stay on a low setting, switching it to high only turns the rpm up a VERY tiny bit and very slowly and an uneven acceleration (they used to jump up in rpm's in a second) Cannot fit H80i (...

Stress off the GPU!

Miguel C., Newegg
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Overall it's a good case. It's perfect for anyone who wants to take the weight strain from the GPU off the PCI slots. It has some issues that may or may not be trouble for some power supplies or overly large CPU coolers.
  • Pros: Motherboard tray is rotated 90 degress, so the IO knockout is at the top of the case. It provides the necessary support for today's heavier GPUs. All the weightt is on the case itself as opposed to the PCI slot. This means no more warped PCBs! This is the main reason I got this case. It looks gre...
  • Cons: The internal Power supply cable is a little short. I had to force it to connect to the power supply. It is connected and it works, but I don't like that pressure. It has me a little worried. I don't see why Silverstone couldn't add just ONE MORE INCH to that cable. Oh well, it still works, but to...
