Rated 4 out of 5 by SoundFriend Nice case, quiet, but watch out for EMC screening problems
I bought this case to house a new Asus Z97-A motherboard with H80 Corsair watercooling kit. It all goes together well.
One point with these black painted cases is that the essential metal to metal contact doesn't necessarily take place between various parts of the case, but especially the removeable sides and the chassis top/bottom and also between the backplate ports screening plate and the cabinet aperture.
Contact between all these is vital for EMC screening so I scraped off paint in some places so all parts make electrical contact when fitted.
This can be checked with a multimeter if unsure.

Plenty of room to work,easy on the cables and drives,swapped the front door hinge from left to right to in two minutes.With a Scan i7 Asus Z87-A Mobo bundle and MSI 760 GTX,case fans running at 40 percent I have to open the cupboard door too hear it.I couldn't be happier.

I swapped my LAN case for something a little sleeker with some control over sound. This did the job so well, I couldn't actually tell she was on. Extremely quiet, even under a good load and doesn't overheat in the slightest. Absolutely wonderful, a must buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TimS A great price/performance case
The case is light, sturdy and quiet! The built in sound proofing along with the supplied Corsair fans make it so much quieter than my previous machine, I forget I've left it on. The plastic front panel has a smart 'brushed' finish and opens from the right with the hinges on the left, revealing an effective removable dust filter and the 3 5.25" external bays. The side panels are easy to take on and off. Inside, the layout is good and mainly tool free. There are 4 3.5" internal bays, but I upgraded this with the Corsair 300R HDD upgrade kit (LN48978), giving me a total of 8 3.5" internal bays.
