This is one of the best investments that I have made. The shield blends into the keyboards. Took a few days for the shield to settle onto the keyboard (make sure you clean keys before hand to remove oils before placing the shield on for best adherence) but now the shield is fully smoothed out. Can't beat the price. ALL of the keys are identified on the shield (F5 and F6 included). Love.
After doing a lot of research online I decided to buy this case. It's supposed to be very quiet while still providing good cooling performance.
I'm yet to assemble all of my computer components, but from what I've seen so far everything is great(except for one point).
I wish both HDD cages could be rotated 90' so that I can install/remove drives from the front. In default layout drives slide in from the side. Upper cage can be rotated 90', but in the wrong direction so that drives slide in from the motherboard side. This is totally useless because you won't be able to install any hdd if you already have a video-card installed.
If it wasn't for that minor gripe I'd give this case a perfect rating.
This case provides excellent cooling and cable management. Its very easy to work around this case and fits most of the components easily. Especially if you have a long graphics card.
Tons of area to route your cables for easy cable management.
I installed Corsair H100 Liquid cooling in this case and it was easy to install it.
The case runs very quite and has a very good airflow with huge 220mm fan in the front.
My only complaint is installing HDD. I had to use the screws to secure the HDD in the slide of HDD tray. My previous Thermaltake had sliders to slide in the HDD without using any screws. But nevertheless it was easy to do it. The HDD connects to pre-connected SATA power that is very convenient.
Overall this case is worth the money.
