Great case but...
3 January 2014
Summary: I had this case for about 1 year now, great until I started customizing the front panel swapping out the fans. The USB 3.0 cable ended up breaking because of heat and the leds blew out. Other than customization it worked great.
Summary: nicely appointed case, a very easy wire management system with room. I have the MKI and they only took about a half inch in width and hight away at a better price. very ampple cooling fan spaces same as MKI.
Summary: Great case. More room than I could want, and airflow is optimal. I love the fact that the front panel has eSATA and USB ports along with the usual MIC and Headphone ports. The 5.5" drive enclosures are plastic snap on that work pretty well, but if you're anal about the small amount of play some of the drives may have, it has screw holes just in case.
Summary: This is the first Thermaltake case I've purchased. All of the others I chose for my builds were usually picked from a magazine review but this time I decided to take a chance on something different. I did however look at cases from the same manufacturers I had used in the past. I needed a full tower case with plenty of room inside yet one that didn't weigh a ton. I do a lot of image and video editing plus website design. Then there's enough gaming to keep anyone busy.
Summary: Great case, well built very nice ventilation the LEDs are not too bright as to bother you if you sleep in the same room as your PC. I did have to unplug the fan LEDs but the ones in the case where no problem.
Summary: Pros: The hard drive docking port on the top is a nice feature. I have not attempted to use it yet but this should be nice for an external drive. The case is attractive and roomy. The motherboard mounting panel has a cutout beneath the CPU socket that is large enough to permit installation of additional hardware needed for improved heat sinks. The cooling fans are very quiet and seem to do an adequate job.
Great case, check height of 3rd party cpu cooler <= 7"

Summary: Great case! Double check before ordering cpu cooler. Must be <= 7". Went with Thermaltake Frio OCK Universal CPU Cooler, think I should have went with water cooler. With all the fans unit is still quite.

With better fans comes great air-flow. Excellent case!! stock fans let it down a star

Summary: Fans: The case supports a total of 6 case fans (excluding CPU fans) this includes: Rear Exhaust: 120 mm by 120 mm Top Exhausts: 200 mm by 200 mm (x2 fans) Bottom Intake: 120 mm by 120 mm Side Fan: 200 mm by 200 mm Front Intake: 200 mm by 200 mm I've had this case for about a month and the supplied 3 fans ( x1 top exhaust, front intake and rear exhaust) do an average job in terms of airflow however, this can be greatly improved by exchanging for aftermarket fans.
Summary: Nice case,looks smart.Well thought out design, cables fit between motherboard base plate and outer side cover, can be a bit tight to get all your cables in, but with a bit of thought and cables ties, it can be done. The case comes with two 200mm fans, one at front blowing in, and one at top (blow hole) sucking out.
