Overall I’m pretty happy with the case. Not only did it surprise me with temperatures it was even quieter than I could have expected. It is simply a great case. It doesn’t scream, "look at my fancy case and my expensive or cheap hardware" – it’s subtle and sits as literally a little black box to record all your life moments in gaming, in picture taking, music making, or whatever it is you do. This case has no single “type” to be associated with…no branding of who you are whatsoever. You get to pick who you are – and the contents of your drives will express who that is.
It is truly a great case no matter what your needs. The 550D is great case for you, for a family member, or even a build for a friend. It is subtle, so don’t let this one go past a good look of your own. The design is simple, classy, and above all, it's extremely quiet. Major props to this case from me…another gold-worthy member in my family of reviews.
- Super quiet.
- Sturdy build with attention to exterior detail.
- Cools well considering lack of air holes and copious soundproofing.
- Semi-difficulty in accessing external drive bays.
- Slightly expensive.
