It is an excellent case, that's the one I won from EVGA. Received it yesterday. Put the guts of the wife's rig in it

I have this exact same case as well.

My cable management isn't as good as the above poster (couldn't fit the 24 pin connector behind the case), but it works well.

Only problem is, the no-screw holders for the expansion cards suck and are prone to breaking. Additionally, it has trouble fitting larger ATX motherboards (like the Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3, it barely fit in the case).

Huh, interesting. I have heard of the crappy slot holders, but that's the only negative I have found. I've found that among the big players' ~$100 mid-towers (NZXT Tempest EVO, Antec 902, CM Storm Scout, CM HAF 922), the Scout is the best of them, with the EVO and HAF close behind.

Yeah hack, those retention things suck. The very first thing I did was break one. but there was an extra included. I have a CM HAF 932 and a Sniper (big bro to the Scout) and they have similar parts. The latter two cases have slightly different styles, but same idea.

And they do nothing to hold a GPU, especially 2 slot coolers. other than that, the cases are great

I'll break open my computer tonight and snap a picture of the tight fit.

Edit: Here is the picture of the tight fit. (I didn't touch the stock wiring)

Looks almost exactly like the CM-690 on the inside, of which I have the NV690 (Nvidia edition of the CM-690), and I love those retention brackets, lol. They hold all of my stuff with no problems and aren't easy to break at all. Maybe CM took a short cut with the Scout's?
