    Verified Purchase

    Ordered this case due to it fitting my application for a new x99 build. Case came damaged. Box and top of case has huge gash in it. Everything else looks nice and it fit perfectly in the environment it was to be used for, but this is unacceptable.

  • Capable, attractive HTPC cabinet.
    Verified Purchase

    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.
