    A lot of room to play with and being fully modular in the way the mb could be placed help fit everything in neatly.

    Nice big tower with a lot of features. Probably a little pricey for what you get but the quality of build, flexibility and sturdiness are second to none. And as any be quiet case... it is quiet :)

    I really like this case. it has allot of options. the fans are very quite. and it's east to take apart and adjust/configure.

    I did have to get some replacement rubber post isolators for the glass side mount screws since they were damaged. BeQuiet send me replacement quickly, no hassles at all. great customer service

    NOTE: I only have a few gripes. 1. The backside vent screws are very easily lost into a channel that runs along the back side of the chassis. unless you are careful this can cause a screw to fall into the channel/slot and you will have fun trying to get it out. since this case is full size and fairly heavy once its loaded, tumbling it to get a lost screw is no easy task. Just be mindful when using any screws on this case. take your time and you should be good. 2. The manual is kinda of an international mess (if you know what I mean). 3. It would be nice to have a shroud for the PSU and cables.

    Okay, here is where I have a complaint. But not with the case itself necessarily. And some of it is just me and my impatient attitude on this build. I got this case, and it looks great, but I wanted the White one, not available anymore, so I settled for this one and I love the look anyways. The innards are well designed and it is pretty customizable (made up word), everything can come out of it pretty much and you can rotate the whole thing this way and that. My issues came up with the delivery of the case, the top, front and bottom are removable to make working on the innards easy, and when i got my case everything looked to be in order. But as soon as i started removing the tape I noticed that the screws holding the bottom onto the case had broken and the bottom now slides free. I could have RMAed the case and gotten a new one, but I just had to get started. Now it sits in one spot and doesn't move so no one would really ever know that it slides. So I am happy in the end.

    I paid at the time of build $209.99 for this Case.

    Pros:

    • Modular case, and therefore, pretty easy to arrange things as desired
    • Build quality of the case is good--it feels sturdy and the materials seem pretty good
    • Comes with 140mm fans (x3), and they're good, quality fans
    • Air flow seems to be pretty good (probably due to space at top, front, and bottom for release and intake

    Neutral:

    • Lots of HDD/SSD cages, which seems a bit unnecessary
      • The cages are easy to remove, though
      • Ugly, gaping holes shown after removing most of them (you can buy covers for the holes, but they're quite expensive)
    • Cable management is average
      • The space in the back is enough to cleanly route cables, but it can be a bit tight if there are a lot of cables
      • With a PSU shroud, the cables at the bottom of the case are hidden, but it's still pretty messy

    Cons:

    • It feels pretty massive, even for a full tower case
    • Manual provided could be clearer about how to remove certain parts to make adjustments
    • No PSU shroud automatically provided (I had to buy it separately)

    Overall: Even though I kind of regret buying such a large case, I still really like it. Also, for the price at which I bought it, I think it's a case worth considering. If you're building a server, I'd definitely recommend using this case. (Just think of all the storage you'll have :P)
