Rated 5 out of 5 by PaddyH Great Case Would Use It Again.
When I received this case, I was happy with how robust this case was built. It is very sturdy with very little flex in the side panels, and the coloured plastic seems to match the colour of the steel on the side panels very well. The motherboard stand-off's come pre-installed for an ATX or E-ATX motherboard (they require the same mounting spaces) making it very easy to install your motherboard. I found the cable management space very adequate indeed, I found the job of managing my cables really easy but just time consuming (which it is when you do a good job of it). This case also included 2 three pin fan cable extenders (to reach the 10 port fan hub at the back) useful if you have extra fans and not enough length on the cables they come with. This is also an extremely quiet case, even when the fan's are turned up to full speed and because I have a Corsair RM series power supply, I have a really quiet system overall.
Now for the things I found some problems with. First of all, when mounting the hard drive, the tool-less mounting bracket for the hard drive had some pins on it that fitted into the screw holes, but these kept falling out when I was trying to plug my power from the PSU into the hard drive, although this was easily fixable by popping them back in. The included I/O button that toggles the rear I/O led's doesn't seem to work, so they are permanently on, which I don't mind, but I would rather have the feature there for me. Some of the plastic parts of the case feel really "cheap" as trying to pull the top and the front off was hard work, it required a lot of force pull the front and top off. I thought I had broken it when I did it and I fell back after pulling it off. Also, I don't like the feel of the power button when you press it, it doesn't go down at all, it is just a click and I prefer the power button on the Phantom 410 where you push the button down a fair distance before you get that satisfying click.
Overall, I found this case to be a brilliant buy, as the problems I encountered were not major, and I do not need to pull the top or front off regularly. I would recommend this case for building a system in. I rearranged the drive bays to get better air flow from the front 200mm fan. I uploaded a picture of the cable management to show you how easy it is.
