- Great Airflow
- Fits pretty much any graphics card.
- Tool Free Drive Bays
- Great Front I/O
- 2.5"/3.5" SATA Drive Dock
- x4 USB 2.0, x2 USB 3.0
- Front Audio (HD or AC97)
- Fits 212 Evo (Has about 8mm extra space on standard placed AM3+ Socket Boards.
- Bottom 3 5.25" Drive Bays if unused can be used as another 120mm fan mount. (Removable metal plates can be reinstalled in the bottom 3 slots.)
- Bottom Mount Power Supply, great for keeping power supply from overheating.
- Space behind motherboard tray is 18mm, there is a place for a 92 or 120mm fan on the right panel, but only thin (less than 18mm thick) fans fit.
- Bottom drive cage must be removed to install any bottom fans due to fan mounts being 5mm too far forward for the backward 120/140 place to fit with the cage in.
- Front I/O cables restrict usage of the top 5.25" bay. I moved the 3.5" adapter to the top slot to solve this. (I don't have 5.25" optical drives anyway)
- Audio Header with both HD and AC97 ends doesn't look clean in system. Would have preferred an adapter to AC97 with HD Audio being the default.
- Left side fan may conflict with coolers depending on how far from the top of the motherboard the CPU socket is.
- Even with A+ Cable Management, lack of right side space makes putting right side panel on very difficult.
- Realistically cannot support AIO water coolers or Radiators. (Can squeeze an AIO 120mmx140mmxXXmm radiator on the back. Any bigger than 140mm tall and 120mm wide will not fit. Tubes must go straight back, not down/up.
- Drive dock cannot be truly considered Hotswapable.
- Dark tinted window. With proper lighting can be some pretty cool shadowy looking builds.
- Plenty of Cable Management Grommets and tie down points.
- Back 120mm Fan is Significantly higher RPM that rest of stock fans.
- Top cover restricts 90% of top airflow out 9 slots at the back so pretty much all standard exhaust ends up out the back.
- Great for those not using extreme cooling solutions but
- Use the 3.5" adapter in the top 5.25" bay to prevent damage to front I/O Wires.
- Note that some motherboard will require left side fan to be removed for tall (140mm+) CPU coolers to fit.
- 240mm radiator might fit on the bottom fan mounts with bottom drive cage removed.
- Bottom fan filter is very easy to damage. Handle with care. Recommend using a high suction vacuum instead of taking the filter off.
- It is easy to damage the front I/O cables if you install a 5.25" drive in the upper most slot. I recommend reserving the slot 3.5" use or don't use it.
- Neat cable management in back IS A MUST or the right cover will not close proper.
- Side panels are very flexable, (and thus hard to get on), use one hand at top center, a knee at bottom center and remaining hard on center front. Use remaining knee to push the panel forward. Use thumb screws to close remaining few mm.
- If you can get everything to fit without removing the left side panel fan, mine keeps my R9 390 below 60c. Thus my GPU fans on auto never come on, even under load.
