I only picked this case to see if I could make a better, slightly cleaner build than from what I saw on a dreadful PC build video on YouTube months ago. On a serious note I've also been a big fan of compact cases that can hold a lot in the inside. This one's definitely my favourite.

I love this case! It looks great with RGB lighting and allows you to create a build that is really clean and compact.

This case man. B E A U T I F U L. Every aspect of it. Building in it was a blast, and it showcases my comments flawlessly. I drool every time I look at it. Only issue I have is the fact that there is no support for the glass side panel so when you screw it in or unscrew the thumbscrews you have to hold the panel in place but that’s not even worth taking a star off. Love this case

Ok, I do have something to say here, but nothing that I wasn't aware of when I bought this case. It's pretty, it's spacious, and it's super easy to work with, but that comes with an airflow price. Again, I knew this going in and got a good enough deal to give it a shot. I'm sure CPU, GPU, and general system temps would be lower in a box that did not have glass at the top and the front with such a small space for air intake. That said, my temps are stable and within acceptable specs, so I'm feeling good to go.
The case comes with two Corsair 120x25mm fans, one at the top of the case and one at the front. I moved the one from the top to the front of the case to make room for the radiator, arranging the one on top to push air out of the system and the one at the bottom to pull air into the system, since it sits right in front of the GPU. NOTE: I've since put both fans in the intake position thanks to the advice of one of the commenters below.
The following is not criteria that I hold against the case design but it's worth noting. The radiator/fans for the cooler, when combined with the layout of the x299 Micro2, make it impossible to utilize the second CPU power input without removing the clips (see pics). The screw-head sticks out just enough from the fan that I had to clip the clips, so to speak, to get the second CPU power input seated (note that the second is only recommended if you plan to OC, but I wanted it in place just to make me feel good).
I did all that clipping before I decided to flip the radiator and fan configuration so that the fans were pulling in air on top of the radiator rather than pulling in air from the bottom of the radiator. This was my solution to trying to get more air flowing into the fans from the small space between the top of the case and glass panel. It worked, reducing my overall CPU and system temps 2-3 degrees, but if I had made this decision initially I would not have had to remove the clips from the second CPU power cord. Note:Once I swapped the EVGA fans for the Noctua fans, I no longer had clearance to keep the fans on top unless I wanted for forgo using the dampners that came with the Noctua fans (yes, the how tight things are at the top of the motherboard). I decided to use the dampners and placed the fans back on the bottom of the radiator. Temps are still stable and the system is way more quiet then it was with the EVGA stock fans.
Either way, I'm giving this box five stars. It's not trying to offer premium air flow over looks in any of its advertising, so I'm not going to hold the design against it, especially since I knew the deal going into this build. The bottom line is that the case itself is good looking, simple to work with, and sturdy.

Really nice to build in. The second compartment is super handy for stuffing stuff in.

What a joy this case has been. I wish I installed the AIO AFTER cabling up my MoBo completely, but that was the only friction point during the entire build process. Tons of room for cable management, and the tempered glass looks awesome.

PSA: If you've never had a case with side panels DO NOT BUY ONE!!! You will start looking for ways to make it look prettier instead of saving that money for better components. But if you hate money and like pretty things then go ahead.
Absolutely gorgeous case, however the temps are a bit warm even with 3 intakes and 2 exhaust due to the small space between the case and the TG. Otherwise, cable management is a breeze due to the dual chambered design.

I am in love with the dual chamber design. No need for the ugly psu shroud and still lots of room to work with. The numerous tempered glass panels definitely puts your build on display especially if it has rgb lightning. My only complaint is that the rubber grommet that is right next to the 24 pin of the motherboard is in an awkward spot. Meaning that since it is a little lower than the 24 pin, there is no way to route the cable completely straight to the 24 pin without the wire travelling diagonally. I've also heard people having concerns about the amount of air flow since there isn't much clearance between the glass and the case but I'm not having any noticeable issues. That aside, I still would recommend this awesome case.

Very easy to build in, good airflow and lots of mounting options. Loses a star because instead of proper screws or something sturfy to support your GPU, the heaviest part in the system, there's just a hinged bracket with raised bumps that hold it in place with tension. Terrible design that doesn't support a heavy GPU at allll. Consider getting a support bracket. Otherwise a great case, and beautiful too.
