I've decided to amend my review of this case.

For starters, the side panel is still a pain to get on and off, and each time I have taken it off, the chasis has been getting bent and warped. It really seems like the chasis is made of a *very* thin aluminum, *much* thinner than the A-top Z-Alien I had before. I suppose this was done to offset the weight of the plastic surrounding, but maybe it's just Raidmax being cheap.

The speakers in the front are a joke. Even with them disconnected, no power to them, any cell phone within five feet makes them go crazy. That seems almost inexcusable.

The other issues I mentioned, seem larger to me now. The drive bay, being riveted in, and poorly ventilated is a near deal-breaker. You can't get to the front fan to do anything with it.

Lastly, despite it's large exterior size, the chassis itself is rather small and cramped.

After a month, I just about got sick of the plastic look.

So next week I am going to mod the power supply, and I think I'll take that opportunity to return everything back to the A-top case. Glad I didn't get rid of it. The craftsmanship of the A-Top case was 100x better.
