I must say Thermaltake has done it again. Using old and new design ideas it has created a great mid tower case with plenty of features for a decent price. This case has great airflow with just the included fans. It would have been even better if Thermaltake had included the 70mm motherboard fan instead of making it optional since I think the feature has great potential. The 23cm fan on the top does a very good job at removing the warm rising air and is fairly quiet considering its size. The warm red glow of the case from the LED fan makes it visually pleasing to me since I am a big fan of lights in computer cases. With plenty of room you would not have any problem fitting even the most fully featured computer you can come up with.
There are a few quirks that I have to mention, however. First, I feel a removable motherboard tray is a must for power users who are constantly switching out components and just for general PC maintenance overall. This makes it easier to change components and get rid of those pesky dust bunnies. Also, the plastics used on the top of the case and the front panel are very, and I mean very, flimsy. Picking up the case the wrong way could leave you with a broken case. I would recommend taking extreme caution when moving your system in this case. Other than those two drawbacks I would highly recommend this case to anyone needing a full featured case for their build. You will get a good bang for your buck here. Kudos to Thermaltake for another great product.
