Read the article, looked it up online and watched the videos for the case and then bought it from Newegg for $149.99 w/ $20 MIR. This will be a nice case to replace my old modded Antec 900. If this case is as good as everybody says it is, this may be the last case I ever buy...

i just got mine today and im finally done setting it up, i must say... this thing is gigantic! The stock fans are very cheap and noisy so you would probably want to replace ALL of them. Otherwise this is a great case with lots flexibility for water cooling and such.

Thank you for writing about this case, I actually went and did more in dept research after reading your article, I ended up buying it last night. I'm really impressed with being able to use a 480mm radiator in push pull configuration. Not that I need that much room but I may in the future, for now my corsair h100 is enough, specially because I'll have push/pull as intake of fresh air from outside.

This case reminds me of the Cooler Master Cosmos Series but has the flair the Cosmos is missing. Just think you can fix the Bigwater Pro 750 cooling system that was shown a couple of days ago. I plan on picking one up on my next build because I have the bay space.

the image is not flipped but you neglected to mention something I confirmed in the manual, the MB tray can be completly removed and flipped allowing the user to access the MB from eather side of the case, you have the option of installing it just as the article suggests or flipping the tray and having the MB installed just like everyone else ;)

Very nice looking case indeed. Wouldn't mind moving into that with my latest build, if I had some extra cash. :)

Wow, what a beast. I could fit my last three builds in that thing.

Question; with the size of the newer HDD's (4TB and growing), do we really need nine drive bays for a home case? I rip lots of movies and take lots of photos, and I estimate another year before my 2TB drive needs to be replaced. Even in a home server, I doubt the need for nine drive bays, unless you RAID a bunch of old junk drives.

HDD's have grown to the point where the home enthusiast can easily get by with two drive bays max, because the SSD’s usually mount to the back of the motherboard tray. The new HDD sizes drive the popularity of ITX systems in secondary HTPC systems, which can be both small and quite powerful.

With all the post-PC crap, I see PC’s getting smaller, never disappearing. So, why nine drive bays?

Very nice case, very nice! If I didn't already have an Enermax Fulmo, I would strongly consider it.

Interestingly, you don't have to leave the mainboard mount "upside down" and on the left side, you can swap the whole removable tray around and put it in the more common right-hand arrangement. Very cool!

My fav part though is the graphics card support system. It has always bugged me that graphics cards don't get any support on the back side - I have an EVGA GTX 680 Classified, and while it doesn't absolutely need support on the end, I feel better with it, as it is a huge and heavy piece of hardware.
