When I first got this case I was like YES I can retire my Thermaltake Tsunami Dream Case which was ages old and not laid out well. I never bothered trying to keep the cables tidied as well - either way it was not good. When I opened the box and took it out and looked at it in all it's glory I saw the possibilities starting to arise.

The first few things I noticed and loved was the power supply was at the bottom with a fan underneath it which means the warm air produced by the fan on the power supply itself was taken right out straight away, it also had a removable filter which helps with the cleaning of the dust, Must keep remembering to clean it as it sits on the carpet as it's just a little too big for my desk. Next I noticed it had the Hard Drive bays facing out to the side and they had screw-less clips, These are soooo amazing as I don't need to get the screwdriver out every time I need to remove or change them. The gap that is behind the motherboard plate - which you take the right side of the case off to access - can hide all the cabling making the whole look of the inside so much better with the clear side panel and not seeing a huge mess of cabling to show everyone.

Having 4 USB ports on the front as well as the Mic and headphone sockets are very handy including when plugging in the headphones. If you have speakers plugged in the back, you r system should mute those speakers and only let the audio come to the headphones, which is very handy and saves the whole unplugging the speakers or turning them off if you can. The 4 USB slots on the front are 2 for USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 with the USB 3.0 plug (internal of the case) being like an old styled joystick plug. For me this is a little annoying as my Motherboard says USB 3.0 but until i can find my manual then I can't use them :( and even then it depends on if it will let me use that style plug for the USB 3.0 sockets.

The fans are all so cool (both heat and looks) and I love the fan at the top being really big - you can really feel the cool air being pushed out and I always love the LED glow coming from my computers and being able to turn them off on this case for what ever reason makes it even better. The look and feel of the case is just amazing, a little heavy when everything is in there but at least you know it's not going to fall over easily either, even with the little kids running around all over the place.

Like most cases this one didn't come with a motherboard panel for all the plugs (for the peripherals). So having had the second motherboard meant digging it out. Lucky I knew where it was Smile Icon so putting it in was simple, Motherboard was next and I had an easy time putting it on and screwing it in. After that I put the graphics card in (GPU) and unlike my other case the Tsunami Dream, it took the full length without sitting so that the Hard Drives were touching it. This was wonderful for me as the ease of putting it in and taking it out (if needed) was so much easier, no removing my Hard Drives any more to do so. After that was the cards like my TV Tuner card and WIFI card. The case took everything I had with the help of the motherboard connections :).

Having the Q-Connector made plugging the cables for the case in very easy, these are the one's for the reset switch, HDLED, and so on. Meant I just plugged it into that Q-Connector and then when ready plug it onto the motherboard.

The only thing I wasn't really happy with was that extra power plug (the 4 pin) as being right at the top with the power supply at the bottom meant I couldn't hide that cable and it had to stay on the outside running along the motherboard. No Biggie for now. Having mentioned about being able to run all the cables behind the motherboard panel was great, just making sure you got them in the right slots to get to where they need took a little job being installed at night :).

In the end once everything was put together it was looking amazing even with the blue LED glow I love it and loved being able to put it together knowing it was going to be a tidy case. Oh that dust filter I mentioned, after 3 weeks I haven't seen much dust on there, there is a little inside the case but if I keep cleaning often, it works well. The only thing I wish they had was the right plugs for the front USB 3.0 plugs to connect to the motherboard, well off to find the manual and make sure I'm not missing anything.

Being into some of the games and even more once my study is finished and I get a new Graphics Card, I know this case will be the one I will keep - one of the BEST GAMING CASES OUT THAT I'VE SEEN Thumbs Up

I hope everyone will enjoy the case as much as I am now, it's very L33t and I think my next case once this one is done and dusted or next PC will be another Antec case.
