Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
