    from completed build A Tale of Two Bookkeepers.

    Nice case with minor design flaws. Pros - Solid, stackable, and nice looking. Includes 2 in and 1 out fan, and a nice three way switch on the back for fan speed. It has only two subtle lights.

    Cons - Opening the case is difficult because of the slide, lift, and spread way you have to get the top off. Its not as easy as the 1" slide for side panels on tower cases. On one case, the cable tie points were too thin to accept my cable ties, and the screws always felt like they were going in cross-threaded.

    Very sturdy and very high build quality. After moving from the prodigy you can tell the differnce in quality.Very nice fractal design.

    Great case, very clean design and air filters everywhere. Thumb screws are very tight so you have to have a screw driver for most of them. With a case this small cable management is a pain but you can get all of them out of the way of the air flow from the front intake fans, the only one obstructing airflow is the cable to the GPU. It does looks a bit like a microwave, but I like it. Also the HDD LED is very bright and white unlike the blue power LED. Ended up lightly sanding the LED and taking a dark blue permanent marker to it. Much dimmer now and nearly identical in color to the power LED.

    I love the look of the case, but it came with scratch marks and the material was easy to scratch and easy to see scratch marks. The molex splitter was flimsy and one of the pins broke off after first attempt. Kept the stock fans for future builds however.

    Side note : the power button is on the side which was an annoyance to grandparents.

    Minimal aesthetics, easy to build on. Love the form factor. Refrigerator gaming.

    For an oddly shaped case it holds a lot. No other case holds 6 3.5 inch drives while looking so damn good! Beats any gigantic tower you can throw at it with great air flow.

    from completed build NAS / Server Build

    Awesome case layout for my NAS server, my only complaint is that most of the pre-drilled screw holes in the case are not straight. If this was a super expensive case that would get it 4 stars but based on the price this is an easy 5 star case.
