Yes they are. Kinda sad tho, in less than a month a newer one has com out even nicer. O'well its kinda like the new car issue, after its boght you always se something else you want. But this case has good room and stays cool, soon as i get my fan controller it'll stay even cooler. Next is a cpu cooler.. OMG there goes my addiction!!!

sry for spellin, 2yrold in lap makes an awful spell checker

That Raidmax power supply should be considered unreliable at best, I would replace it as soon as possible.

Actually that was what surprised me the most. No it isn't a cool master, corsair, or xfx, but the company does have great reviews all around and for my needs and budget it does its job wonderfully. I do appreciate your concern though.
