the 250mm fan on the side might get a tad bit noisy, depending on how picky you are. 35 dBA, meh....

everything else looks bada** so yea, I'd get it bro. good luck!

Don't like it, its out of stock anyway.... Why are you asking someone elses opinion about something you'll have to live with?

cuz there's nothing wrong with it.
and frankly, if there are people here with any bad experiences with this case they'll come forth and warn him.

I bought this case

XCLIO
and it should be here friday. It might be a substitute for the one you're looking at because it's cheaper and still has the 250mm side fan. It also has 4 slots in the front for 80mm fans, so you could buy 4 that will push more air than the 250mm front one and you could still get all of that cheaper than the one you're looking at. The only thing I dont really like about the case I bought is the huge power button..but I'll get over that.

I suppose, but he didn't ask that. Thats what I usually use the newegg reviews for.

Still don't like it, I'm more of a plain computer look type of person.

Personally, that case doesn't suit my taste... I find it not very attractive to the eye.

Also, it seems that many of the reviews on the case report issues with the hole alignment for hard drive fitment. Compound the noise of the fan onto that, I would make a different selection, but that's just me.
