Lack of information

Anonymous, Newegg
12 March 2015
  • Summary: The case is great, I love the overall design but there will be a little bit of shuffling parts around more than in most cases with this guys. Also, the door thing that other people have talked about has me concerned. Not too worried, just concerned.
  • Pros: +Roomy tower +Excellent cable management +Good airflow +Nice design +Hot swapping port is awesome (although I haven't used it yet) +Rugged, steel chassis +Did I say rugged? I mean RUGGED +Stock fans are pretty dang quiet Overall, really good case.
  • Cons: For my setup, I chose to get a Corsair H60 rather than a full 240 radiator because I wasn't going to overclock this system. It didn't fit where the 120mm fan goes. The thing that is preventing the windowed side panel from going on it the way that they bonded the acrylic window to the metal side p...

Great case, but needs polishing.

Dillon F., Newegg

  • Summary: If you have a single card, it would be fine, but other cards is a no go. I hope ThermalTake contacts me about the LED controller, and possibly get that replaced.
  • Pros: It's a very nice, sleek, sexy case. Sturdy construction, and doesn't flex.
  • Cons: Case came with a broken LED. I thought it wasn't as much of a big deal, but now I really do want that feature. I double checked everything and it seems that the LED controller just isn't working. The door is now starting to break not even 6 months of use. Whenever I open the door now, it just fal...

Good case but could use better cooling

Russell S., Newegg

  • Summary: Overal im happy with the case. Just wish it had room for a few more fans or atleast a 360rad.
  • Pros: Very roomy, easily fits 2 ref. Gtx 980sli with room to spare. Had no issue mounting a 240rad. to the top only 1 screw out of the 8 didn't have a hole. The front panel on my seems perfect so far door opens and closes just fine without coming off
  • Cons: The case needs better fan support. I found it challenging to create positive pressure while still getting proper airflow only. Only holds a maximum of 5 fans.

Great large case for a good price

Travis B., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Summary: In the end I am very happy with this case. It's built well and walks the line between looking good and staying simple quite well. I had no issues getting everything in to this case and it was fantastic to work in thanks to all the open space.
  • Pros: This is a great large tower for those looking to put together a build and don't want a cramped tower. The tower is tall enough to easily fit the PSU, motherboard and a water-cooler radiator without difficulty. It has enough depth to fit even larger graphic cards without interfering with the drive...
  • Cons: While a great case overall, it's not without faults. The most notable fault is a common one with cases that have a door. The door has no vent in it to allow for air to flow in to the intake fan that is behind it. While there is room for air to go around the door, obviously having the door there d...

Tower

Kevin C., Newegg
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall a good case for a good price, just the front door is annoying
  • Pros: Great that you can manage your cables easily and that it is tool less. Nice build quality.
  • Cons: Main thing I gave it a 3 star instead of a 5 is because of the front door that hides your disk drives. The door closes and everything, that looks great. However when you try to open the door it pops off the middle and lower hinge, the top hinge holds it on but after you open it you have to push t...

Roomy Full Tower

Igor K., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Summary: I got it day one (since they hit the shelves). I needed a roomy full tower with a nice side panel window for my SLI build that produces A LOT of heat! This case got the job done! While mid tower was stuffed completely, I still got plenty of room left in this full tower.
  • Pros: -Even though front cage isn't removable.. there's still plenty of room for long GPUs. -Comes w/ a docking station. -Comes with a nice blue LED strip on front top of the case. -Looks very clean. -Comes w/ plenty of USBs on front panel. -Plenty of room for a serious SLI/Crossfire Build. -Nice side ...
  • Cons: None really, I've loved this case since day one.

See my review of the non-window case

Jon K., Newegg
3 July 2014
  • Summary: This case is has a window in one panel. Mine does not, otherwise it's almost the same. Go see my review. The review is a bit long but I fixed the front door. You might want to do the same.

Simple, Elegant. Not Perfect

Nola L., Newegg
30 May 2014
  • Summary: Has had a few problems but overall im very happy with this purchase. Its not too flashy, keeps my equipment nice and cool, helps keep dust out with those filters, and looks great!
  • Pros: Case Keeps my equipment very cool. Its dusty but my house is. The filters help a lot. Cable management!!!!
  • Cons: I had trouble mounting my cpu watercooler (double fan) to it. I had to remove the top fan and cut some of the case to get it to fit. Even before modding the case the top part is very easy to pop off so be careful transporting this anywhere.

Not Horrible

Carlos Y., Newegg
17 May 2014
  • Summary: The box arrived in decent enough condition( a stretch) but that played no bearing on the contents as it was not damaged visually when opened fully. Just make sure that if you do purchase this case you know exactly what you are getting and doing.
  • Pros: Big. Light. Easy to move around. Plenty of room inside case. It fit my Asus Sabretooth 990fx and my XFX r280x card inside with plenty of room to spare. Comes with standouts pre-installed and plenty of screws to tie down your board and other components. Looks decent enough visually. Plenty of airf...
  • Cons: Bad bad build quality. The only part of this thing that wasn't plastic is the chassis itself. Top and bottoms are made of poor quality plastic. The front door is plastic with aluminum finish. The door itself falls off at will. Thats when it works and when it doesnt work, it sticks. Good thing the...
