As part of a team building exercise, the team's goal was to build a system from available parts with the following goals in mind:
- Team work: everyone on the team must contribute to the build
- Build design: component selection & overall cleanliness of the build
- Speed of build: 4 hrs 30 mins was the maximum time allowed to complete the build
- Speed of system
- Cable management

The team was competing against "Team Avengers" whose build log is here:

This case is great for cable management in that the drive bays are pre-wired and there is plenty of room for running all the wires
