    Got the case put together last night and I really like it. I have some cons tho. Cable management in this case is not that great. Since i have a non modular PSU, there are minimal places to put unused cables and such. There are only 2 HDD slots so i ended up putting my third HDD in one of the floppy bays. The light setup in the front is stupid design. They want you to hook it up to a switch at the very back of the case in which the cables are too short so it has to run infront of the mother board :( I took this switch out and set it on top of the HDD cage. The back fan slot is only a 92mm :( I was highly pissed about this one, I expected it to atleast be 120MM but no, Now i cannot install one of my deltas in the back :(

    I am working through my dislikes but over all i am satisfied with it! i especially love the carrying handle. I will slightly mod this case so i can get it cleaned up and install all of my fans

    Just thought I'd throw it out there I have an H2 and am in the process of moding it slightly for a watercool setup. Waiting for BD to release so I can't get everything setup. Will post when I have it complete.

    hey

    Here we go, since i last posted, i have modified the case, bottom right... so the pump has more room, so its not so squeezy anymore, so off with the hardrive rack..!
    And also my PSU crapped itself , i had a Thermaltake tough power 1200...i replaced it with a OCZ Technology ZX Series 1250W Power Supply so i had rewire the lot....its winning !
    And i added another 6 gigs of hyperX 2000 kingston , because i could, ram is so cheap these days...i love it...

    Wow that setup looks a lot better with the hdd cage's removed! Sorry to here about the psu, that's never fun. Speaking of power supplies, whats the reason for not flipping it so it intakes air from the outside (bottom)?

    I know right! Ram is super cheap right.:p

    Sorry I read ur question wrong... I thought u were talkn about something else.. I have no idea why it's that way.... I guess that's just the way I put it in first , plus there is minimal ventilation underneath the case to flip it..

    I had a lexa blackline, I gave it to my dad a while back. Haven't seen it since LOL. I'm sure it's in the back of his store somewhere with spiders in it :c
