The fans appear to be easy to clean out which is great for dentist offices. The cable management appears to be in order. What's not to love for office use?

I like the sleek simple design too. Chassis designs that are chopped up look absolutely dumb to me. biggrin.gif

Got this case. At first sight severely impressed with the looks. Huge. Monolithic.
But dissappointing too. The backscrew is misaligned. Paint chipped. And doesnt seem to fit as well as a corsair case.

Btw I bought this case real cheap. Will want to use it with my very vanilla setup. I am a bit worried it is to large...that the cables would not be long enough. IS this a problem with this case?

CPu Intel 4570
Mobo: Asrock Fatality H87
HDD/SDD: 2x HDD 1xSDD
PSU: Collermaster V550s
GFX: MSI 270 gaming

Also my motherboard I think is an ATX motherboard. Should I use all 9 offstand?

I have discovered that you can have just as many issues with more expensive chassis. You get good set of features. Minor cosmetic damage can be fixed fairly easily.

Yeah. In the end was resolved with the help of Customer service.
Teh alignment is off...requires you to push it in a bit.
The screwholes I didnt need to tap in or anything. Just used a screwdriver to screw it in and out. Quite forcefully. Was residual paint.

And one everything was fitted...extremely happy with teh result.

Lots of space.
No problems with length of cables
Super quiet. |Even when using highest voltage.
Looks gorgeous.

The USB and plugs on top....hmm I wonder how big the strain is on the plugs? If the ports were set at the faceplate///all cables are hanging at 90 degrees.

But with the height of the case and the ports on top of case...the cables are hanging 360 degeree..or in a U bow. Carefull with you expensive headphoes.. A tug or something could break or strain the plug of your headphobe
