    Another thing i want to praise is the case. I took a total shot in the dark on the case. I am happy to report Supermicro hit a Homerun with this case. It's not fancy, it doesnt sport flashy LED's or even a window. No it's small has a mesh stamp on the side panel and offers a ton of room to work with especially since the HDD bays slide in and out in sections. The tooless 5.25? 5inch? whatever. slots took a bit to figure out since my old case just had a thing you popped off and there you go. Personally I love the brushed metal look, it has a nice streak of red down the side (also available in gray) and has only 2 lights. Those being the Power button and the HDD led. As far as inside the case goes cable management is a bit on the meh to OK side, but what really stands out is the back side of the case. I just shoved my cables back there and there is no bowing of the panel. The Amount of room between the back of the case and that panel is borderline epic. The only serious bad thing i can say about this case is the cut outs for the rubber grommets. You cannot fit a 24-pin through without removing the grommet. I tried to not have to take it off but I gave in an took it off and replaced it once the 24-pin was through. As far as the rest of it there is ample room for the Rad on both the Front or the Top. And a plethora of spaces for fans, and one feature about the rear exhaust fan i like is the old-style grille protecting the fan from foreign objects. Front panel cables are plenty long although you do need an adapter which is included with the case as Supermicro uses a different setup than most Case manufacturers since this case was designed to use Supermicro Boards. I can rave on and on about this case, but long story short, check it out. Microcenter's carry these for significantly less than Amazon, atleast at time of purchase. The case was also designed to be taken apart quite easily for easy mounting and dismounting of chassis fans (which 3 are pre-preinstalled)

    Edit: Don't let the compatability filter fool you a Corsair H100i GTX Rad does fit in this case. Both on the front and the top.

    Im gonna give this case 4 stars. Im taking a star off for the small cut-outs for the 24 pin as well as the fact that this case is easy to scratch, and lack of a manual. Thats the worst i can come up with though. If i could give it a 4.5 i would.
