I have one and love it. Great cased.

Be aware that if you are mounting a large mobo, it will fit fine, but it does take a little time to get it in because it is a little tight toward the front. Nothing too bad though. You may also have to pull all the wires out of the back to put the motherboard in, then put them back once the mobo is in. Just buy some extra zip ties and you'll be fine

Awesome. Thank's. How close is the top fan to the HSF? Ive read that it can get kind of tight.


Also does the LED button work with third party fans' is there a control plug for it?

Sorry I have been late on the reply...

The top fan is a little close to the end of the mobo. It is close enough that the EPS extension I have running is pressed up against it.

In my config (see system specs) the HSF is nowhere near the fan, though. there is a good 2.5-3'' between the HSF and the top fan.

As for the LED fans, there is a button connected to a molex, and off it are 2 connectors that hook up to the fans, that are hooked directly up to the LEDs. power to the fan motor is supplied by a molex cable, NOT a 3/4pin fan connector.

I have this case as well, everything seems to fit fine, im using a sunbeam core contact freezer and theres enough space between the HS and the top fan, the top MB screws were a pain though, used a screw driver with some sellotape to stick the screw to to get it in, blue tak would prob be better.

I have a phenom 8750 running a mild OC of 2.6ghz and 1.3v at idle with the CPU fan set at 1200rpm (can't hear over the case fans which aren't loud) im getting a core temp of about 23C, did about 5 mins of prime and didn't really go above 30C core temp, about 37C Cpu temp.

The only thing i didn't like was that you need a molex connection for each fan. Apart from that its great. The Leds aren't bright so it won't flood the room with red light :) a red led side fan may help if you do want that affect though.
