You do not need a Lighting Node Pro if you already have a Commander Pro. The HD series fans plug directly into a 6-Port Lighting Hub and even come with a 3-button controller. No additional costs for simple RGB lighting. If you want advanced lighting control, you can purchase either the Commander...
It's aimed towards low budget builds ($49.99 MSRP). Most modern cases are "first time builder friendly." I've seen first time builders purchase the 570X (a complicated and delicate case) and present an aesthetically pleasing build.
Thank you all for your feedback.
I was actually quite excited for this case and I like the new front fascia. The interior is the same as the previous SPEC series and I enjoy building in this case for budget based systems.
Hey guys! So we appreciate y'alls feedback on this. While yes, one can most certainly just build their own for cheaper, but not everyone is willing to. We offer this product fully built for an easy to use and setup out of the box experience.
I, for one, am excited to be using this in my home!
