I did read a lot of reviews on the egg that stated the expansion clips were...not so good.

So here it is





Front panel doohickey


Love how you take off the front optical covers, just slide this off and the optical bay cover just clips right off.



Only problem is that the plastic can be a bit flimsy, the floppy drive one broke.

Nothing a little loctite adhesive couldn't fix though.

Done.



PROs: Installation of optical and hard drives is the easiest I have ever had.
Cutout for heavy duty air cooles, although usual these days for any case.
Built in fan controller(which a lot of reviewers have had them going bad though)
BIG!

CONs: Doesn't have everything you need to take advantage of the fan controllers. I must be a fan controller noob but the connectors for the fan controller have a molex with one wire going to it, I assume for power. Then a bunch of two pin fan controller connectors that I assume require another harness.

It's an attractive case at least. Looks really nice. I like it better then the HAF series and other miscellaneous black boxes that seem to be popular around here.

Had the case for 2 month now and i find it great, its huge. The only downside was my own fault. i cannot find a good way to fit my corsair h100 system. right now i have the push/pull with 2 on each side the problem I am having is the 2 fans on the top of the case. i have the blades covering them but it blocks the movment so i have to manual set them. if there is a better way to configure it any advice would be great. here are some pictures
