The SilentiumPC Armis AR7 TG RGB is the souped-up version of the traditional AR7, with tempered glass, an RGB fan, and RGB LED strips built right into the chassis. With a jam-packed feature set and an interesting price tag, the chassis is an interesting foray into SilentiumPC's design choices.

I don't understand Proprietary RGB/fan headers for controller in cons.

The built-in RGB controller can be connected to the motherboard, and then switched to be controlled by motherboard by pressing the LED button on chassis for 3 seconds. It is in manual.

Excellent cooling capabilities?

Can you prove that? In any way whatsoever?
There are no measurements (as usually in chassis reviews on TPU), but I think it was rather a thing of how tall air coolers and large AIOs are fitting in. At least that's my thinking :-D

Looks like a really solid case to me. If I was changing mine, I could've gone with it.

This is like a review of a car without a test drive. The two most important things I want to know about a case are how well it cools, and how quiet it is. I can get a features list and pictures from anywhere it's sold.

Those 5.25" bays are great, the only use for them nowadays are for installing bay devices like fan controllers which aren't particularly deep, so having that option is greatly appreciated.

Nice a pc case from potato land, or should i call it Polska ;) I dont know if this particular SPC design is their own, but most of their pc cases are just some chinese OEM rebranded as SPC. They are not like Antec, Silverstone, BeQuiet, LianLi, Phanteks, NZXT,Corsair and any other major premium pc case brand that make their own designs.
