Summary: feels study and plenty of room to build a powerful rig. still have not built anything on it I am waiting on the CPU but its definitely the best case on this size I have ever worked with. Will update If anything comes up.
Summary: This is a great case if you have a lot of components you want to put into a small form factor case. I had 2 SSD drives, 2 HDD drives, 2 optical drives, and an add-on USB multi-function card reader. I had been using a mid-tower case but since I wanted the PC off the floor I found the tower case to be a bit too bulky and noise to put on my desk. So I switched to this one and it has worked well.
Summary: i got this case today but i am contacting Amazon due to some problems with some things that is not at all Amazon's but rather quality control at Thermaltake. i bought a Thermaltake VH6000BWS back in 2009 or 2010 and i still use it today.i will wait and see how Amazon deals with this problem. Edit:4-3-13 Amazon Came through and even though they sent me a replacement case that is a little different than the one i ordered the case itself turned out to be just what i needed.
Summary: Great case with a great look. It's kinda cramped, but you don't buy a Mini Tower for its size. I can run both of my 680's in sli in here just fine. Removing the HDD cage gives me a lot more room and makes cable routing much easier though.
Not Tinker friendly -- No water cooling - 90cm'ish clearance for after market cooler (forget about serious overclocking)

Summary: Make sure you have every last piece and part that you want to install before even starting to build with this case. Everything is a tight fit and you will have a hard time adding a hard drive, aftermarket cooler front or rear fan. The case is quiet, I think my cpu fan is the loudest fan in the system -- just forget about a water cooled solution. I love this case, looks great -- I regret buying it just because I like to tinker and this is not a tinker freindly case.
Summary: Pros: This case is perfect in many ways. I think one of the best thing is that the motherboard sits on a tray that can slide out so you dont have to work around the walls of the case. Also the fans that come pre-installed are really nice and quiet. I love the windows on the case so you can show off your motherboard and any lights you put in. The motherboard fits in perfect on the tray. Everything in this case lines up perfect and everything can be removed easily.
Summary: This case is very cool. I love the low profile while still having room for additional HDD's and disc drives. I needed something small but still wanted the room for expandability if needed. This case fits the bill. The stock fans are decent and pretty quite. There are a lot of screws involved with taking and putting this case together. So if you are someone who needs to get into your case often then this might not be the case for you.
Summary: The case itself showed up at my doorstep 3 days earlier than expected. Even with this hurricane hitting the east coast. I thought it would have been delayed. I'm pleased that it wasn't. After looking at the case online and examining all of the modular trays,bays,ect. I thought to myself this would make a great gaming lan case and it comes apart easily enough to mod the case for future endeavors.
Summary: Pros: Sturdy case, tray is a dream to slide even with components (compared to a thermaltake VF6000). Cons: Modular PSU highly recommended. Cable management is complicated but not impossible (even when using a fully modular power supply). Other thoughts: This case is not as heavy as other ones but is not a lighter one either: it is sturdy, well made. Beware it is a compact case as advertised.
