This case has a lot of nice features, in actuality it's a stroke of genius. First off, it's a TANK, made primarily of 3mm rolled steel with aluminum doors on the front chassis. The doors are held closed with small magnets and both of them open, making the installation of drives a breeze. The radiator being mounted on the doors both cools the water loop and increases airflow inside the case itself.

The size makes working inside this case very easy and it has enough room and expansion slots to handle all your upgrading needs for years to come. The seven expansion bays have removable honeycomb-grilled covers with foam inserts to keep dust out; if you've ever had to clean a computer once a month you can definitely appreciate this feature. The side panel is easily removed by depressing the two latches (lockable to keep little hands out, w/ 2 keys included) and swinging the panel outward. No more having to muscle and pull side panels off from the rear. The two removable HDD cages (one forward, one rear) are a nice touch, just load 'em up and slide it in. Inside there are also pre-drilled screw holes on the bottom panel, enabling the installation of almost anything you can conceive.

The watercooling components appear to be well made, if somewhat 'average'. This isn't bad mind you, but if you're a hardcore enthusiast or overclocker you'll want a more high-end water block and pump, such as the D-TEK Fuzion and Swiftech MCP655 respectively. On that note, the tubing is 3/8", adapters will be required for 1/2" loops. For a LC novice however, this setup will be more than sufficient.

Now for the not-so-good: This case is heavy, clocking in at a whopping 51 pounds. Even its all-aluminum twin, the VD4000SWA, comes in at 32 pounds.

That's what I had to name this colossus. She wasn't necessarily easy to work with though. For one thing, the Ultra X3 1000 watt power supply would not fit initially. I had to remove the 3 1/2" cage from the rear of the case and do some additional minor mods to get the PS in. But overall, this case was very easy to work with. Another minor note if your planning on building a screamer, which is what I would expect if your buying a water cooler equiped case. I would highly recommend using the water cooling for an SLI arrangement (or whatever flavor of dual VGA) and use a TEC (Thermal Electric Cooling) for the CPU. The built in water cooling equipment will do the job either way but a little much for just the CPU. And even though they do hint that the system could handle both the CPU and Dual VGA, I wouldn't recommend it if you plan on OC'ing. The TEC cooler will give you sub room temps, and the H2O system will keep the twins in check. Good Luck!

don't mind that then this is the case for you. Its a monster...the pump works well...actually have an extra bottle left over they give you two. I have a water block on the north bridge (modded), a vidio card water block, and an aquos on my drive too...plus the chipset block it came with. This thing has lots of room, is quite...easily modded, I cut in 3 more fans and added a fan controller as well...

The radiator sytem works excellent and you can't put togehter a water based cooler and system cheaper...so as you might be I was worried it was going to be average or just junk....boy was I surprised...love the unit and highly recommend it for home based systems...but if your lanning...go to they gym before you even consider this thing.

Specs on mine: asus MB, 8 gigs G Skil 2x4 800ddr2, g-force 8800gts, 6 samsung 500gig 7200 sats, 150gig raptor, 2 samsung dvd sats lots of water cooling and some other modds for fun

Delivery was quick. As reviewed by others, this is a huge case, which is what I was looking for. The ad about needing no tools is not quite right, you will. Read the manual thoroughly so you understand how to put your components inside, ie: plan it out, it'll go much smoother, and take your time, don't rush it. I've had heat issues and needed more space to cool my system. Add water cooling to the mix, and it's a great setup. I took the advice of a friend and used a TEC for the CPU as opposed to the water cooling, I'll use the water cooling aspect for other components. Even without the water cooling, the TEC took 12 degrees C off CPU temp at startup, and never looked back. I've dealt with this manufacturer years ago and have been pleased with their products, and this is no exception. If you have the money to spend and have need of a good case, by all means, buy this one. Beware that all put together, this does weigh a lot, so have a cart or something to move it to it's final location where you intend to use it. Don't hurt yourself carrying this.
