Joining the club
Haven't built anything since '03.
This case was on sale so I picked it up back about a month ago.
Saw this case and its one of those cases I figured if I look at it long enough, I'll like it
Right now, I'm actually quite proud of it
So far, for the price and what you can fit into it, definitely an awesome uatx case.

Everything in my sig rig except the motherboard.. I had to go mATX, so I picked up a M4A785-M for $45. Only worried a bit about putting my H50 in the front

And xRaven, according to reviews mostly any sized coolers will fit, almost ANY will fit if you don't mount a 200mm intake on the side panel. What were you considering as far as cooling solutions go?

Which cooler is it?

I got my Xigmatek Dark Knight to fit. And that's a pretty large cooler.

I think the maximum sized cooler you can have in the unit is 165mm without the 200mm side fan.
Just look at the dimensions of the cooler you want to buy and see if its less then that.
My 212+ fit perfectly with plenty of clearance. Its at a 158.5mm in height.

Case arrived today.. here are some pictures.



Vulcan. Sufficient packaging, not over the top but gets the job done.



Baby on her side



Standing up fresh out of box



Front view



Front Drive bays: Note the stock cable management NZXT has done, not to shabby. Also the plastic underneath the bottom HDD bays to prevent the top of any long PCB's shorting from the metal of the case. Good thinking NZXT!



Accessories box.. HDD rails, numerous thumb screws as well as regular.



Bottom view, PSU intake dust filter visible on left.



Rear nekked view, panel off. Good job of cable management by NZXT.



PSU Mounted inside, fits perfectly. Not tight enough to scratch but not going anywhere.



PSU Cable management holes.



Removable HDD Bay. (Necessary for H50's.) Front panel off momentarily to do some fan work.



Fan work completed. Double 120mm top exhaust.



Motherboard in, H50 Rad in.



Everything installed, straight up view. Side panel off. Cable management didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped, having the HDD's in the top bay made it more difficult. Note to anyone buying this case with an H50: It will work fine! Just make sure you have SATA cables that are long enough so you can run a reverse installation on the hard drives so the power and SATA are hidden. (Facing the other way/front of the case. Will have to pop off front panel.)



More Vulcan goodness. I have another 80mm orange LED exhaust fan I will be putting in but I was in a rush to just get everything going.



Another Side view.



Side view w.panel on.



Angled view to top it off!

Edit why aren't my pictures showing up?
