Very nice case, looks super sharp. My only issue is that the front USB ports are very tight, when inserting a plug it feels like I'm trying to force it in backwards.

Very sturdy and very high build quality. After moving from the prodigy you can tell the differnce in quality.Very nice fractal design.

Nice case with minor design flaws. Pros - Solid, stackable, and nice looking. Includes 2 in and 1 out fan, and a nice three way switch on the back for fan speed. It has only two subtle lights.

Cons - Opening the case is difficult because of the slide, lift, and spread way you have to get the top off. Its not as easy as the 1" slide for side panels on tower cases. On one case, the cable tie points were too thin to accept my cable ties, and the screws always felt like they were going in cross-threaded.

Filters in all the right places. Smart case layout. The top of the case gets kinda toasty since the top of the CPU cooler is just 5 mm away from the panel. I guess that's some extra passive cooling :P

Cable management was difficult as expected, and I just ended up shoving everything in the corner in front of my front fans next to the hard drive mount. Eventually I went back and redid everything, so now there is better airflow from the front.

Beautiful, simple and small case! Ideal for smaller NAS of HTPC builds. Challenging to build in and cable manage - but thats part of the fun of building own pcs.

For an oddly shaped case it holds a lot. No other case holds 6 3.5 inch drives while looking so damn good! Beats any gigantic tower you can throw at it with great air flow.

The case is just as I remember it from my last build. Nice looking, good air flow, and reasonably compact. I will continue to use this as my "go-to" case until something better pops up.

Excellent case, quiet, and good airflow.

Tiny but holds a ton of storage and solidly built. Also lets you tear it down to bare shell to build in

Minimal aesthetics, easy to build on. Love the form factor. Refrigerator gaming.
