Pros: Roomy, Airflow, Cable Management
A few issues though are apparent on this case
- 1st and in my opinion worst is the "filters" are plastic mesh infront of the fans. This means too remove them you have to actually unscrew the fans or remove the plastic parts of the case roof or front. This is an irritation. The side fan sucks up a fair bit of dust (and my home is far from dusty). Having to actually unscrew the fan everytime I want to clean the filter is irritating. The top fans though take the prize. to remove the filters here and clean them properly you will find yourself taking apart the majority of the case roof, (and don't get me started on the PSU filter on the bottom needing you to remove the entire PSU). Maybe I demand too much but I would have thought some kind of easier to remove and clean filter system should have been developed by now on what is not a cheap case!
- 2nd is the "hotswap" bays. This doesn't bug me alot as I expected them to be junk so what happened was no shock. Twice now in under a year I have had to replace the PCB for these hotswap bays due to it killing itself in use. So use at your own risk in my experience it has issues.
All in all I would rate this case 4/5. It loses a point for the irritating filters, the hotswap issue while an issue was something I expected (I didnt expect high quality here at this price) so I don't remove a point.
