Pros: Gorgeous. great cable management. awesome front fan removal system
Cons: Stock fans are LOUD. gotta remove the fans if you want to remove the drives.
-Front fans are mounted to a removable base. Makes for amazingly easy cleaning. The fans are also powered through this base, so when you mount in back into place, the fans automatically kick back on, the base and they shut right off. It's weird to explain, but it works so well.
-Dust filters on all the intake areas: front fans, bottom fan mount, and psu mount. I rarely need to open the case up to do any cleaning.
-Very sleek styling, just looks good all the way through.
-Soundproofing is amazing.
-Great space for cable management
-Built in fan controller with 3 variable speeds
-USB 3.0 front header is always a plus
-Hot swap bay on the top may be useful to some
-Decent temps and airflow throughout the case.
-Magnetic front door. Has a really nice, smooth swing to it. Very soft close, as well.
-Stock fans are just too loud, even on the low settings, they're still pretty audible. Ended up swapping them out with gentle typhoons. Now I just leave them on max speeds and I can barely hear them.
-Front fans AND side panel must be removed when you want to remove your storage drives. Just seems inconvenient to me. Could've been solved if the drive cage was mounted 90 degrees the other way. I suppose it was done to obstruct as little airflow as possible.
-Wish the front door had larger air gaps on the side for air intake. Front fans feel like they're struggling to suck in air through the existing gaps.
At the end of the day, this is still an amazing case, especially for the price. The fan noise really shouldn't be a problem to most, especially when you're gaming. You can still solve that problem by swapping them out with higher quality fans. If you're looking for a sleek case with some awesome features, and you're trying to not break the bank, definitely consider looking at the H2.
