Rated 5 out of 5 by Bemused "thumb" screws!?
After using a corsair case for my last build I must say the difference in general quality is quite surprising. Its nice to see when a manufacturer has actually taken time to think about people using their product.
Good looking case with plenty of sound insulation, inside is relatively well laid out.. Plenty of space for cable management... despite every review I've ever seen having the cables eating into the sound dampener on the back panel, and people complaining about lack of cable space, if you cable-tie every last thing flat its got loads of room back there. Pack most of it all away under the PSU shroud and its good to go. PSU installation itself can be a bit of an issue if you don't think about what you're doing though. Wires through the gaps first, or plug them in to the PSU blind, your choice!
Thumb screws everywhere. Some are rubber dampened (case side), others which you would expect to be damped, aren't (HDD bays) :/ Maybe I'm just a ham-fisted oaf but I had an uncanny ability to cross-thread the thumbscrews at an alarming rate. Opted to use a screwdriver to save the threads from my abuse.
Smoked window is a nice touch, maybe would have liked it a shade lighter, but can't complain. Could have done with a few extra grommets for the bare holes above motherboard and on PSU shroud, but again, for the price, I'm not expecting every last hole to have a grommet so can't grumble too much.
Scan delivery and service faultless as per usual

Rated 5 out of 5 by G4MBiNO Simple yet stunning
Going from a NZXT Phantom Full gaming tower to this stealthy all Black H440 was a breeze. The space for cables is unrivalled. Even in the phantom no matter how much care you took, it still looked messy. From at least a psu point of view anyway, but here everything is hidden. Its a thumbscrew design, which makes it tooless i think, but it seems that captain america assembled this in the warehouse, the thumbscrews were tight, like really tight so out come the screw driver. No big deal.
Impressive, just sitting here looking at it, i plan on getting a Corsair H80i GT but for now the artic freezer i30 still looks awesome inside. With some illumination added later on i can only imagine how it will look, but for now, a fantastic case.
My only gripe, it seems you cannot change the speeds of the fans, like the phantom tower. The case fans are 3 pin and plug into the fan header on the actual tower, but if you replace the fans this should not be a problem. Use the mobo fan headers or some hardware add on.
Brilliant, gorgeous and i love it immensely, scan even threw in a NZXT Doko streaming device with this, that even seems to stream fine. A great service from scan and a great product from NZXT.
Pretty silent fans that come bundled, but i would change them to have some control. They however do a pretty decent job of blowing air :s
