Anyone have this case or reccommend it? It looks really solid and I'm looking at getting it to run my new dual core setup here shortly. Thanks!

It's a really awesome case from what I hear.

The only negatives I have towards it is that there are no air filters so all your crap gets dusty as **** and the LEDs are obnoxious haha

I just built a computer with this case. I love it!! And I don't mind the obnoxious LEDs!

For any PC I've had, I have always had a problem with dust. I periodically take my PCs out to the garage and clean them out.

What I really like about this PC is the number of fans and how quiet it still is. My father-in-law is convinced on the case because of how quiet it is with all the fans running.

I saw it a couple of months ago at a prerelease. It looked good, but it was predominantly plastic, something that I have now shyed away from and never regretted.

I just feel that for the price it should be a bit nicer.

The case has ok reviews but there are better for the price. It doesnt live up to the hype.

I actually just purchased one yesterday after looking at a ton of other cases. Bought this one for my new build rather than buy another Koolance Water Cooled case. This tower is solid; at the prerelease it may have been plastic but they definitly have changed that. the 4 fans run so silent its amazing and the placement for the powersupply is great. Also the fact that all 4 fans come with switches to adjust them is a great feature. The blue LEDs in the fans arent that annoying either the black mesh in front of them dims em down a bit and the fan on the top doesnt have glow so if its sitting under a desk you wouldnt really have a problem with that. Thumbscrew bays for your harddrives make for easy installation and such. Comes with a 3x5 mesh replacement for a floppy drive that looks great. I slipped an ATX board in just to check out how much room Id have and its not a ton but its plenty. Along with the fans all ready installed there is I believe 2 more slots available for optional fans. One on the back and one on the side of the case. LOVE the entire look of the case. Id probably give it a 8.5 / 10 in the catagory of non-watercooled . Not to heavy either.

This case was $80 @ the circuit city by my house over the weekend.

I spent $250 for my case :P Why not buy a nice case, its one of the parts which will actually last a good while.
