I have the case. I just finished building my PC today. I have to say that it is an awesome case in terms of cooling and looks. My tuniq tower just fits in as well which is good.The power supply being at the bottom I found to be very useful and the wiring was easy to sort out and neatly in place unlike my old PC. Just remember to get black cd drives lol, one of mine is silver (from my old pc) which looks a little out of place. Now does anyone know where I can get some filters for the fans?

I really do recommend this case. The only CON i can think of is it is a small case lol, a little bit bigger would have been nice.

Oh and as an idea of what you can fit in easily, I have: 2 hdd's 2cd drives, a front soundblaster panel, a PCI soundcard, a 7900gtx graphics card, and the beast of a HSF tuniq tower. And of course the mobo and CPU. I have room left for another 4 hdd's which woudl fit easily and some more expansion cards. This was not hard to install.

look at my case if you want to see what it is like, I posted it here:
my new build. Some help needed.
