The only real complaint I have about it is there isnt enough room in it. Especially if you want a W/C setup. It is really sturdy, looks good, DOES have a removable mobo tray. Like I said, a little small if you have lots of stuff you want to put in it.

Like I said, a little small if you have lots of stuff you want to put in it.I have this one too...well actually the very slightly different earlier model just before it. I think the only difference is that on yours the thumbscrews are backlit. I've really liked mine so far...though I don't mess with it much lately, just sits there and does its job. What I didn't like about right off the bat was that the front panel is near impossible to remove.

Ok, I just got the case and the fed-ex guy said my motherboard should be coming in tomorrow but my question is, why is there no manual for this case? This is my first time ever building a computer, but I pretty much know all the basics. I was just wondering if anyone had a link where I could look at a manual. Thanks for any help.

You usually do with server-class cases (and some Inwin ATX cases)...prolly others but, yeah I never have seen a manual with a consumer level case. I've seen them come with one piece of paper with a schematic diagram of the case itself and maybe a legend for certain parts..but that's it. You just open 'em up, cram your mobo in there with the end of a broom stick, slap the side panel back on, plug 'er in and fire it up! :p

No, that case doesnt come with a manual. Its a pretty simple case though. If you end up with any questions, just PM me.

We sell a lot of those cases where I work.

They're ok I guess. I absolutely hate the led's on the front though, way too bright for me.

I got everything hooked up and its all running fine. The front LED's arent as bright as everyone made them out to be. I just need to get an AMD 2500+ mobile and Ill be one happy camper :)
