Yea same here.. Seeing this makes me want to buy a 500R, but then again I did get my 650D for 50$ Brand new smile.gif

This will be the case to get for my next build.

The build quality of the case is very impressive (last one I bought was the Antec 300, the original one before it came with the extra fans) so yeah huge quality jump lol.

Though I find it strange that the case came with no documentation besides a not very helpful quick start pamphlet.

I was wondering for the longest time how to attach the SSD to the hard drive cage and it seems that you had to remove the HDD screw prong thing at at the sides for the SSD to fit.
A bit of a weird design choice as I don't know why they couldn't just put the SSD mounting holes in the center of the cage so I wouldn't have to bother removing a part and risk losing it.

Fortunately, the case is very straight foward and easy to build. I wasn't too sure at first about the bulges on the side panels as I like my cases to be subtle and not too gamer like since I like minimalistic stuff (and so people don't get the impression that i'm all play and no work....lol) though really they've grown on me and have given me a nice excuse to be a bit lazy with my cable management.

EDIT:
Is the HDD activity light under the power button supposed to be on all the time? It seems like its always off for me, did I forget to plug in something?

HDD light should flicker on and off, no? Although now that you mention it...mine never flickers anymore either. Something to do with SSD?

This was done so the connectors would be in the same place on 2.5" and 3.5" drives if we wanted to make a backplane/hot-swap version of the chassis.

I have intel ssd and 5 other hdds and mine flickers only when there's activity. And that's how it should be.
Did it ever flicker? you might want to double check hdd led connection to mobo. or see if windows 7 is running any antivirus scan or indexing stuff.

May sound a little nerdy, but like I said on my Newegg review,

I've never felt this way about a case ever. Its like the feeling of making a 10,000 piece puzzle and having 9,999 pieces in place with one missing, then after 10 years you finally find it and the masterpiece is complete. (10 years of pc building, this case has everything I've wanted or needed, and leaves nothing for me personally to be desired, thus my masterpiece epic puzzle is complete).

Even my wife, who doesnt know a processor from a stick of ram, thinks its the best looking computer case shes seen.

I ******* love this case. Carry on...

For me it does not have everything i want, But im still buying one

Things i would like is 140mm mounts at the front and because its me i would like a top mount PSU, Removeable motherboard tray and for it to be slightly thicker on the mobo side for cable management... But still thats just me

Im buying this because it looks slick, And at least has most the stuff i need.

Ill be ordering one the week after release in the UK, Hopefully ill have the money by then.

Im gonna upgrade my system specs now for the stuff im getting
