Rated 4 out of 5 by BenP Good case if you plan ahead
The case is good, very sturdy and looks nice on a desk. It is coincidentally about the right height to sit my Surface Pro on and have it in line with my monitors, which is nice. I used the case with an NH-L9x65 CPU cooler and I did have to flip the fan for optimal airflow. It fit my triple slot graphics card though which was good. I used a full modular power supply of 180mm and an optical drive, and I could route the cables fairly neatly, though the hard drives are quite hard to access as a bit of the room in front of them is used for cable routing. I added some rubber washers to the hard drives and that has reduced noise significantly, the included SilverStone fan is fairly quiet. It's a bit expensive just to get the aluminium front, but the handle will be useful too. I just wish that they made some effort to sound damped HDDs so I wouldn't need to, but it's not the end of the world.
