    Expert Review

    This is another excellent case from Fractal Design, made specifically for quiet operation while accommodating high-end hardware. The exterior is subdued and stately with front door unbroken by bays or switches. Two external 5.25 inch bay are found behind the front panel while two removable drive cages provide mounts for eight 2.5/3.5 inch HDD and SSD's. Two additional 2.5 inch drive are provided on the back of the motherboard tray; in sum, the drive flexibility on this case is excellent.

    Good cooling options are also provided, with mounts for two 120/140 millimeter fans in the top and front of the case. An additional fan of the same size may be installed in the rear and bottom of the case. The case ships with a fan controller to vary the speed of up to three fans which many builders will find is a plus. There are accommodations for radiators up to 240 millimeters long. Eight expansion slots are included and high performance GPU's up to 430 millimeters can be installed if the top drive cage is removed. To ensure silent operation, sound absorbing material lines the interior of the front and side panels. In the end this is a very competently designed case which is very good at most things and with minimal drawbacks.Rating: 4/5
