While not a full on case review, Phil over at PCPartpicker did a recent build using the case and went into a good amount of detail on it, and overall he was a big fan:

I've seen the video, but it didn't seem like he was going to go into detail about the case. (I just skimmed... now I feel bad)
Thanks for making me go back and look at it again.

So I got my case, and I have to say the paint is disappointing. It comes off so easily. None of the other source cases I have had and have, suffer from this. The form factor is awesome, it is somewhere in between the full tower monsters and the mid towers. Only comes with two fans and no front fan, which is also disappointing since I need to go out and purchase one, but the paint is the biggest of my worries.

I will open a thread and provide some pictures for you guys once I get it built. I have a lot of work I have to complete with a new dev environment so I won't have time for a bit.

If you don't mind, can you link us in this thread when you get it up? I'm really looking for as much as I can on this case.
