I have to agree with the reviewer; to say that this case lacks originality and function, is an understatement.

I was quite disappointed to see that for a case of this price (and size); you still had "knock-outs" for the front 5.25 inch bays :huh: , heck even the Siverstone Raven (@ $ 195 US), has regular front bezels...no having to permanently remove the metal bezels. If I'm paying $200 + for a PC case (especially to water cool in), it better be ready "out-of-the-box" for whatever I want to throw inside.

Also; I'm not impressed with having almost the entire left side occupied with fan mounts, it would be near impossible (without much modding) to have a clear view of your components/ water cooling loop...pretty much all of us that water cool our rigs, want to be able to show off the innards.


Sorry people; I'll save some cash, stick with my 700D for now, and look elsewhere for something better....perhaps the NZXT Switch 810 (a mere $40 less) , and a lot more potential for water cooling your components NZXT Switch 810

It looks like a full tower version of CM 690 II to me. :P
I, personally don't like anything about the case. As I don't know what the cost really is, I won't comment anything about that.
@BluePanda: Nice review!!

Our energetic reviewer BluePanda

You don't say?
Really pumping out the reviews.

Not a fan of these top mount hot swap caddies and I agree with d6 this is practically the enermax 690 II full tower.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

You're funny -- this is after a nice clean up and sell off of all the cases you've sent my way. haha

Dunno if I can handle holding up 3x as many reviews...I do a lot for you already...
