Pros: classy, neutral colors, cable management, tool less design, cable grommets, watercooling support (On rads and pump), large for matx
Cons: Lack of 3.5" drive mount with pump, no good res mount, not tempered glass, large for matx
Pros: -mATX: Great form factor with perfect balance between size and expand ability
-Classy: Has plastic panels, but the fake brushed aluminum looks really good while not looking overdone like many computer cases (Lack of 5.25 helps this)
-Neutral color scheme which should go great for any build, excluding the blue power led
-Cable grommets are quality and a plenty
-Plenty of space in the rear for cable management (Due to bulge after motherboard)
-Can fit two 240mm radiators with pretty easy mounting due to sliding mounts (Longer, not just individual holes) - 30mm for both with 25mm fans, though I would not go any bigger
-GREAT price for what your getting, this case looks much nicer than its price suggests
-Fans seem to be good quality (Though I did not use them) and they had black cables
-Anti noise foam on back, not sure how much this helps but it's there.
-AMAZING cable tie down points and the included velcro straps make cable management a breeze
-Able to slide psu in and out with thumbscrews - VASTLY HELPS WHEN WORKING ON especially with a pump and watercooling
-Removable PSU cover part, allows pump runs without loosing all the cover for covering cables
Cons: -The power button is huge, my cat steps on it and turns the computer off (Though this is a rather situational issue)
-No way to just purchase a solid side panel, I want one when I go to college to make my computer less flashy and more discrete for security purposes
-No 3.5" mount with water pump installed, though I don't have an easy solution to this
2.5" mounts make it hard to push cables into, but this was not a major issue
-Radiator/Fan mounts not removable like some higher end cases, meaning it is kind of a pain to hold the radiator inside the case and screw it at the same time.
-Blue power led, should be white to be more neutral
-Not the smallest mATX case, but it does have better radiator space than most (Clearance above mobo - closer to window, not centered to prevent contact with heatsinks)
-BIGGEST CON: No good way to mount a tube reservoir (No pump mount either, but can easily use 120mm mount in basement, could not put res on pump due to interference with gpu, maybe a small res would work). I ended up custom cutting, with a laser cutter, .25" wood to make a makeshift floor to go above the basement cover and allow me to mount the res to that. I ended up making two pieces, with one notched differently to not interfere with the front rad, to give me more wood to screw into.
Other Thoughts: I built a watercooled system in this case and was able to fit two Hardware Labs white GTS radiators in (30mm thick). I went with a d5 pump and mounted it in the basement with a 120mm mount (Bought some thick rubber washers as vibration isolation, but was not really necessary). I would recommend a ddc pump for this case.
I found tubing runs to be a little tight, though if you actually get some 90 degree rotary fittings (Which I did not), it should not be an issue.
I mounted my reservoir on top of the psu cover on my custom cut wood pieces, though you could get a similar result with a band saw. I simply set this on top of the psu cover because I did not want to damage the case or psu.
I ended up putting a drain port in the basement next to the pump inlet, which works, but is not ideal since it is hard to make this the low point of the loop. I recommend getting a radiator with extra ports.
IT IS WORTH NOTING that I had to put my case fans on the outside of the frame on the front radiator because it was so tight with the gpu that it would have been almost to make a clean tubing run. This meant I lost the front dust fliter, but I simply made this flow out while pulling in air through the top (Which can be done due to dust filter).
A rear 120mm radiator would not be possible with two 240mm radiators and I could not see a 280mm fitting with any other radiator in this case.
Overall, I was very happy with the case considering that I was filling it to the brim. My custom cover would not have been necessary if I had gone with a smaller res (i went with 250, 150 or smaller might be better) and a ddc pump, though I already had the parts since I was planning to use a custom made case, which did not work out. It is a great price and is classy, but not boring. It fit my rather expensive build well, and does not bring it down, and it is priced such that cheaper air cooled vents can be used.
I did not have any issues with flimsy fan mounts, not to say it is not an issue, but I did not notice it.
