so far its great... The fans are whisper quiet, and I actually had to put a flashlight on them all to make sure they were working since the front is the only one that lights up. The inside has about the same room as a 1983 Chevy truck, and it makes cable management very easy. The case is a bit bigger than I thought it would be. It just dwarfs my Antec 900, but man its just awesome.
I really like the extra mounting areas for fans for GPU's. They must have been thinking of the 480 when they designed it.
edit.. got card installed and using latest WHQL drivers. This thing is crazy fast, and BFBC2 just seems all around smoother than my 5870. Using a custom fan profile I'm at about 84 degrees load with 80% fan speed. I don't think thats not too bad considering its 100 outside right now and hovering 80 in the house with AC ON. Going to wait until its cooler out to OC it, but I don't think it really needs it.
God I HATE Alabama in the summer.
