on this case and then put in the worst HDD cages known to man. The ones in my HAF-X were WAYYYY better (and they weren't that great). Secondly and this isn't really a knock on the case, more on me, but the case is too big to be put on my desk. If it had an inch less length I could fit it on there, but it just starts to tip over if I do. I'm gonna have to re-arrange this room to fit the case now.
That said, the case has my CPU, and GPUs much colder than my HAF-X did and is still overall the best case I have ever owned.
$299-$350 is not necessarily a high end premium, considering you get a lot more water cooling options to and features than most cases at the price range and way more flexibility and options over the $150 cases. The HDD cages were the first thing I didn't like about the case, the felt very flimsy, but every time I do hard drive swaps, it all stays together nicely.
Another thing I didn't like was paint job.
