The buttons at the top are not Power and Reset, but Power and "LED Control" if you buy the add on LED lights for the case. There is a color changing strip on the top that indicates power, but no HDD LED. My power switch was defective, reaching out to Phanteks they offered to ship me a replacement part. I opted to mod the case to support a standard Power/Reset switches and modified the top Power indicator to have both Power and HDD activity.
They mention that you can put the video card in facing either way. I was able to get this to work, but depending on the PS you have you will loose the top front fan slot to the ribbon cable turning around on that side.
Card thickness may be a problem as well. My card is 2 slots on the back but this enough for 3 slots. I was able to get it into the case, but had to attach some bumpers in strategic places to meet up with the mesh guard on the front otherwise they would press on my GPU fans. (Again not a problem if you have a thin card or are mounting fans in.)
Your connectors (USB, HDMI, DP, etc...) are most likely going to be too long and require you to put in right angle adapters to close the top. It is trial and error to find adapters that will fit and not block other connections. (I had to give up 2 USB ports that my DP adapter covers)
This is not my first build, so I was able to work around the problems, and I love this case, but you should know what you are walking into.
My case has a I3-9100f turboed to 4.1 and a GTX 1650 Super so heat is not an issue with me even with the stock intel cooler. It's being used as an htpc/emulation machine laying horizontal on it's side.
This was my first ever computer build. Did my research and had almost zero problems building inside this case. I fit a FULL-SIZED RTX 2070 super (fan style) and a 120mm AIO for the CPU. The biggest issue i had was the PSU plug got in the way of the little adapter built into the case. Solve that by 3d printing a bracket to move it off to the side to get the plug to fit. Other than that everything went swimmingly.
Pros & Cons time:
-Looks sexy. Like super clean & sleek looking. Most people i showed say they've never seen a computer like this.
-Small footprint. Its one of the reasons i got this case was for its size & footprint.
-The mesh side panels make the machine almost "open air" and are perfect for temps.
-Rock solid build. Chassis is not rickety or cheaply made. Metal front and back panels are DIESEL.
-The top panel is plastic. I thought it was metal like the front/back panels, but it was not. It's not bad per se, just a little disappointing. Also the plastic creeks and warps slightly when you close it as you need to put some decent pressure on it to close the lid.
-The mesh panels are a bit rough where the mesh wraps around and is glued to the plastic of the panels. Specifically at the top and bottom of the case. If they had used snap in pieces to hold the mesh in place rather than glue, it would have looked much cleaner around those edges. You CANNOT see this when the case is closed so don't worry about it ruining the aesthetics , but it is slightly visible when the lid is open.
-When the lid is closed, there is only so much clearance between the IO panel and the lid. JUST enough space for a full sized DP cable with the locking latches on the back. You do have to bend the cable right out of the molding to get them to fit. Some cheaper cables might suffer internal damage if you repeat this.

Just FYI, bought a watt meter that plugs in between the wall and computer. The system listed above pulls 357 Watts from the wall during 1440p gaming load.
Absolutely no clearance for air coolers on this case, buy an aio instead.
Build quality is average but good for the price.
Pcie extension cable feels very cheap and will most likely get squeezed against your ssd mounting brackets.
Cable management is an absolute nightmare. Unless you actually build pcs for a living, I would not recommend buying.
Building in this case reminds me of that cheap Chinese lego set I got for Christmas along time ago. Everything seems to have a hard time fitting together and your hands will really hurt after your done building because of the edges.
Top reviews from other countries
Costruita bene, veramente solida e facile da gestire, permette un ottimo cable management evitando di avere i fili scomposti in giro per il case.
Bisogna prender bene le misure per l'alimentatore che poiché lo spazio a disposizione e veramente poco.
Unica pecca per la quale do 4 stelle, e che anche sul sito del produttore non vengono specificate le misure accettabili per la gpu se non per la lunghezza massima, infatti il braket della gpu non accetta schede video con uno spessore superiore ai 46mm e pertanto non tutte le ultime schede custom sono supportate.
Alles in allem empfehlenswert, wenn einem das Design gefällt.
Mit kleineren Karten hat man das Problem sicherlich nicht.
Ich würde das Gehäuse nicht nochmal kaufen, obwohl es sehr schön anzusehen ist.
