As you didn't bother to actually put a system together in this case how can you give it a nine

CONS: once mobo is in you can't remove the drive cage out the back you have to remove the front bezel ( removal of 5 screws ) and some considerable effort to pull it off and two black metal bay face plates 

if your lucky you'll get one with a functioning HDD LED ( mine wasn't ) 

if your even luckier than i was you'll also have properly functioning Power/Reset switches ( which by the way are not smooth to operate they're loose fitting and stick or jamb when being pressed down)

 

so how the Frack this case gets a fracken 9 is beyond me  

 

other than that it is very quiet and very Cool all of my gear had good temp drops 5~10 degrees Celsius  

 

Play till it breaks then learn how to fix it!

3 Hard drive only? I really do not like the hard drive area at all.  They should have put it in as a hot plug or side mount situation and get at least 4 to 6 drive mounts in there.

Other than that it looks like a awesome case.

you can buy the HDD cage to be able to fit a further 3 HDDs into the case

 

Part NUM: SilverStone  CFP53B 3x 3.5" -> 5.25" HDD Cage

since video cards seem to be getting rather large these days, can you please state in your reviews the longest possible card you can put in a case. There is no way to tell just by looking at a picture and on occasion you do state that it will hold "x" brand card but I really think it should be a standard spec in all cases.

 

Thanks!

 To me it seems as if the case itself is close to 2 feet long.

it does appear that this case could hold a rather large card, but how could we know that if we don't see it in person? I buy a lot of my computer components online because the only store we have here is best buy, not the best place to go and see cutting edge cases. I just think that adding a line in the case dimensions for video card length is a great idea

It can hold a 5970 if you take the fan guard off the center fan. And in the future we will include a line about video card dimensions in our case reviews.

awesome,,thank you so much for that!! I know that my next video card upgrade will force me to upgrade my case so this is going to help a lot in my decision. Thanks again

It is but the cards hang from the top instead of going sideways.

The PriceGrabber price and link is for a different case. It should be: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163154
