I totally agree with BluePanda, though I've only had a couple of so-called "full towers".

Currently I own the corsair 700D (with a few modifications to allow better airflow for water cooling); I have found the airflow within the case worse than my (much) cheaper Zalman GS1000, I'm about ready to swap out my (6) Cooler Master r4's for 3 Triebwerk fans. I'd give both cases back in a heartbeat for a Cooler Master HAF-X anytime.

I accidentally deleted it (from my phone) before finishing it. :/

I'll try to get it back and finish it.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Yes, my case is lacking the blue -- but that's because it's my review rig. No modifications allowed. So it has to be as ugly as everyone else's.

However, I do have a case review going up with some definite interest in blue. :D I'm currently using it as a secondary build with my X3 ATM as well...just set it up this past weekend. Need to be able to work while I bench :P
