Ps: installing a PSU is a bit off, but not too bad. On a plus side, it has great air flow.
There is lots of room in the case, and it is well designed and constructed. Even the removable side panels are sturdy. The motherboard fit easily, and the back I/O panel went in well.
The case comes with lots of screws for use in constructing your system. The HDD mounts are done with special screws; you put them onto the HDD, then slide the drive into the rack, where it snaps in.
There is a platform on top of the power supply for 2.5 inch HDD or SSD. This is a nice touch; many systems use SSD for the boot drive. I don't have these, and omitted the platform from my system.
There is a rotary switch to change the RPM of the three case fans. Those three extra large fans drive a lot of air, but actually move slowly even on the high power setting. I keep mine on high, and it is still quiet. It comes with mounting brackets for two more 120 MM fans (which go behind the large front fan), and space for two 60 mm fans over the VGA ports. I installed the latter, but since I have only the one HDD, I didn't add any extras to the front. As for efficiency, I am using a Phenom II X6 1100T running at stock with a stock CPU cooling fan, and the system idles at 29C; the most I have seen it hit is 49C. So the case moves air well.
The side fan has a connector feature that provides power, which means I don't have to try and connect the fan to the motherboard or power supply before closing the door. This is really great.
The case has two round openings near the power supply that can be used for an external water cooling system.Read more ›
The included fans are nice, but personally I find the lightshow to be kind of irritating. It would have been nice to have an option to disable the LEDS, so as to prevent it feeling like an alien abduction every time my machine would pop out of sleep in the night.
My biggest complaint about the case was the fact that dust would accumulate more rapidly than in any other box I've owned. It got sucked in mostly through the side fan, which has very little in the way of a filter. I literally had to dust this thing out every two weeks, which is far worse than any other box that has been in the same location.
Finally, the side panels were a pain to get off. I spend a lot of time under the hood, and it's irritating to have to fight to get your case panels off.
Had a little confusion on the system header to get the LED's and fans to initially work to include the 4 pin mollex that is on the back side of the case to power all of them. Other then this no problems at all!
