Conclusion:

When I first got this case I was a little skeptical of its design. The case looks visually appealing and does not disappoint in performance either. Overall installation was fairly easy, however I was not able to use the tool free solution for expansion devices with my video card. Apart from that, everything went together smoothly. It does however sometimes require a bit more force to get the panels on. Another major thing (or at least what I thought of as major) was the fact that hard drives are installed with the cables facing outward. However, in the end this does not really matter since the VGA Turbo Cooler covers over this, preventing you from seeing them anyway. I thought it was great that the front panel LED connector wires came bundled together, making them easier to manage. As with a lot of mid tower cases, it was hard to fit the video card and power connectors in, but they do fit. Overall this case performed well, but while it has some pretty good things going for it, some of the bad outweigh the good. The tool free solutions for drive installation weren't  as secure as other tool free designs I have seen. In addition, the system securing the side panels could wear out over time. While it is nice to not have to use screws to secure them, since they are plastic they could potientally break off after extended use.

 

Pros:

  • Great Design
  • Cool and Quiet
  • Tool Free Solutions
  • Cool Front Panel LED Display

 

Cons:

  • Tool free solutions could be better
  • Tool free solutions may not work with all I/O cards
  • Clips that secure side panels could potentially wear out
  • Side panels are a little hard to get in the whole way and sometimes require a small amount of force
