Expert Review

This computer case offers a very clean design with a number of features catering to builders who want a quiet, yet high performance computer with front and side panels equipped with sound insulation along with the top and side vent covers. It also has eight expansion slots and can accommodate high-end video cards up to 420 millimeters long. Cooling is well handled by mounts for up to six 120/140 millimeter fans and four 120 millimeter fans along with a mount for a 200 millimeter fan located in the side door.

Drive compatibility is plentiful with removable 2/5/3.5 inch drive bays which can accommodate up to six drives and there are also four 5.25 inch exposed bays for inclusion of optical drives. The result is a very capable case offering both quite operation and high performance hardware compatibility. The only downside is the price, which remains at the upper end of the scale.Rating: 4.5/5
