I purchased this cabinet to house a recent Win8/XBMC HTPC with gaming capability build. It's spacious(for a HTPC cab), study, attractive and has good fit and finish. The included fans and inner sound dampening material are nice bonuses. The fans run quietly, and even adding 5 additional fans, I barely hear anything across the room, and definitely hear nothing when there's sound coming from my home theater. One thing to note is that if you're using a pre-built watercooling solution, you may need to mod the case by cutting a new fan/rad mount, as I did. I have a Corsair H55, and it wouldn't fit on the right side of the case because the overall thickness of fan + rad projected over the RAM slots, and the tubing was not long enough to stretch to the left side of the case. I ended up cutting a new mount in the top panel of the case, which was kind of a sticky mess because of the sound dampening material, but I can't fault the case for that - this wasn't an intended use of the product. However, mounting my rad there with 2 fans in a push-pull configuration is keeping my FX8350 nice and cool at idle and within safe limits(max 58C) under load for an hour or more, and that's a hot-running processor. I also removed the HDD cages completely and just laid my ssd in the bottom of the case to make extra space for the cables from my non-modular PSU. So far, so good. Also of note is that if you're using a full ATX board, you will not have space to mount a slimline optical drive. I just keep one in a USB3 enclosure handy for the rare occasion I need to read a disc.
