Overall, this case is amazing!
I decided on this case and I knew it was suppose to be big, but I just wasn't prepared for how big. This is actually a good thing though. All the parts I bought for my new build were large. The heatsync, the GPU (graphics card)and PSU ( power supply ) were all large, but fit in the case without issue and were easy to install due to it's design and size. The PSU is separated from the motherboard area, giving it ample room and good cable management. The motherboard area is large and even with my full size ATX board there is almost room for another smaller motherboard.
The Hard Drive and Optical drive bays are positioned out of the way of the motherboard and offer tool less installation which is very simple. It took me about 2 hours to build this machine and most of that time was spent seating the heat sync on the cpu.
I did not replace any of the 3 fans that came with the case. You know they are running, but only if you pay attention. The CPU (i7 2600k)has been running at a steady 40c even under heavy load.
Once built the look of the case really shines and you can tell how much thought went into it. The front optical bay has a spring loaded door covering them until needed. The ports are covered by a slide on cover with small vent holes. One side of the case has a small see through window. Both sides have filtered intakes on the bottom of the case. The exhaust fan is actually on top so the back of the case is just a nice black panel.
The only thing I can see being a problem is if you have limited space. If you are short on room you will want to avoid this. But if you have the room this is a very well designed case that looks good and function great.
The front drive-bay cover is a great design on paper but in practicality it will almost certainly break on you at some point, which is unfortunate because the only reason you wouldn't get the RV02 is because of the lack of a front cover and the color, although I think white cases are much more appealing than standard black/grey ones.
Working inside this case took a few minutes to get used to because of the 90 degree motherboard mount, which I was not familiar with, but after I figured it out everything pretty much snapped into place rather quickly. Obviously, you should be using big motherboards, graphics card(s), a heatsink, and a PSU with long cables; which brings me to the cons.
The negatives with this case are definitely centered around its cable management. The back panel has places to slide your cables into and the PSU will have a large open space right behind it if you're not using a fully modular one but the people who designed the cable management for the motherboard clearly forgot that this was a 90 degree mount. I couldn't use any of the cable openings to rout through to the guts because they are all covered, which is really lame for the price you pay.Read more ›

As an experienced user with this case who has completely assembled and disassembled my entire computer setup a half a dozen times now in this case I'll put out all the little tips I can think of for anyone thinking of buying this case.
1. You will be able to fit any graphics card I've ever seen in this case. Got one of the monstrous EVGA GTX 580s and a 470 in mine at the moment, and they fit just fine. I'm using a huge air cooler at the moment, (Coolermaster v8) and it fits fine as well, with nearly an inch of extra space between the cooler and the side door.
2. Tool-less external bays. It's a complete cinch to install any dvd/bluray/media card reader (read more on this in the cons section as well).
3. Tons of PSU room on the bottom. Got a kingwin lazer 1000w in there that's mostly modular and it works quite well (especially since that psu came with long power cables).
4. Cooling on air is quite good. Stock fans are quiet, though not as efficient as aftermarket ones such as I've installed.
5. Durable case (other than the front panel =( more in cons)
6. Looks even better once you fire it up than it does here on pictures (Check the video, I've done a bit of modding to the case, just an FYI).
7. Easily mount a radiator on the back of the case. The back trim piece can be removed to mount a truly enormous radiator setup. This case caters to water-coolers quite well. Because it's set up that way, you'll never have to fill your radiator over the top of your components.Read more ›
