Clean, inconspicuous and not at all 'gamerish'. A modern design which is quiet, spacious to build in and has two USB ports on the top panel. Only issue was some poorly threaded mobo standoff holes, but they eventually went in.

Very compact and love the fractal design minimalist styling. The case uses some pretty thing steel though. In various parts of the chassis you can tell it just bends and flexes far too easily. When naked it seems like the case could just fold over in certain areas, which is a bit disconcerting. The components themselves kind of feel like they're providing significant structural integrity.

This is the case of the gods. No unnecessary space, but plenty of room to work in. The construction quality is outrageously high. I am so glad fractal has joined the future and abandoned drive bays.

Best case I've ever owned. Very decent amount of airflow after swapping both included fans to the front and installing an extra in the back for push-pull. Works nicely with my blower-style GPU.
I also really like the classy look of it. Keeps things quiet. I had a really hard time between choosing the windowed version vs this one, but the top panel works kinda as a window when you remove the modu-vent and replace it with the included dust filter.

Compact, really quiet, and a dream to build in. It has cable routing holes in the front for anything you can think of, and great cable management features in the back. It is warm, but I recommend the Meshify C if sound-dampening is less of a priority to you than airflow/temperature.

Great case to build in, but in terms of GPU temps leaves much to be desired. The main problem is extremely restrictive front panel, The moment I take it off - I get an ~8 C reduction. Take dust filter off - another 2-3 degrees less. It would be less of a problem if you're running with Vsync or live in a colder climate, but shows poor design choice. No wonder the Meshify got released after C, which I would've bought instead of this. Additionally, the part where GPU resides is quite narrow and traps a bit of heat, while the upper part stays much cooler. Because of that you have to crack up the fans on the GPU (even undervolted) which beats the purpose of sound dampening. For silence and low temps using open-air GPU anyone should look elsewhere.

Simply superb design, excellent use of space and great wire management. Very close to total case perfection. Why four stars then? My 10+ year old Antec Solo has heavier gauge, stiffer and stronger construction. The Antec also has slightly better build quality, fit and finish.

Excellent value. Small footprint and still and plenty of flexibility in terms of cooling configuration. Top notch value, nice one Fractal.

Excellent case. Actually quiet, even with three cases fans at full speed. Quality materials. Excellent filtering. However, there are a few issues. The 3.5" Hard Drive bays are a joke, no airflow whatsoever. If you are planning on using a mechanical hard drive in these bays definitely move the fans down as far they go or at least open the PSU shroud. Also, The captive thumbscrews are pretty bad, just saying.
