Examples of the flaws
I have 3 major and 2 minor complaints about this case.

1. The motherboard tray leaves tiny metal shavings when slid in and out! I put electrical tape all around and it slides like butter on a hot biscuit now, but metal shavings!?!? Inexcusable. Cooler master has a great ball-bearing system on the ATCS, which is a cheaper case :swearing:
I think I will use PlastiDip along those edges as a permanent solution.

2. Stock, airflow is garbage. I reversed the 92mm fans to blow out, added to Scythe Kama bays, and put in 4 54CFM S-Flex fans, 2 front intake and 2 top exhaust. Now temps are good

3. The magnet used to keep the front port cover closed....every time I insert my USB drive, it gets stuck on the magnet. That can't be good

4. (minor) The Reset button can only be pushed with a paper clip. Just put a small normal button instead of a pin hole

5.(minor) There should be pre-cut holes in the motherboard, and behind the motherboard for cable management, but with the room in this case, cable management is never an issue. Besides, this case was made for some modding

With that said, I LOVE this case. It is pure S-E-X. The way I feel about this case is the same way Han Solo feels about the Millenium Falcon

Can't say that's happened to mine, fits like a glove.

They were made to blow in so that VRM's are cooled whilst water cooling. There are much better cases out there for air cooling

Ha, that happened to me. The magnet is not strong enough to wipe data

I wish they would add a hole behind the motherboard for access to CPU cooler backplate. Removing the motherboard without taking apart the loop is a nightmare and certainly a 2 man job!

As far as the fans, I understand why SS designed it the way they did. This is definitely a WC case. Positive pressure is never good with air cooling.
Thanks for letting me know about the magnet. That's a load off my mind

I dunno I went from a balanced pressure to pos. with this new case and don't really notice any difference...except less dust

EDIT:

Though I will say it would be nice if the front 180mm pushed more air :/

Sick build vule. What fans are those? I'm loving the black/white theme. For anyone with the FT01, does the xigmatek Thor's Hammer fit using push/pull configuration? The HSF's pretty huge.
