Solid review of the case, notice this in your cons.

 

1/2 inch clearance on the bottom - be careful when sitting the case on a carpeted floor

 

I would suggest no matter the clearance that you never put a computer on carpet if you can help it. As simple as a piece of plywood, or shelving laid on the floor and the PC on top of it is a much better solution. What I do for a mid or full tower is cut three pieces of 2x4 to about a half inch wider than the cases width. I then buy a piece of shelving with the width as close as I can get to this , usually going a bit over the needed width and cut it to length about an half inch longer than the case. I put one 2x4 at each end and nail the third in the middle and I have a nice and inexpensive computer stand that gives me good air flow and gets the computer up, off the floor and out of the carpet.

I agree with you Ed. I am not a fan of putting a PC on the carpet but its amazing how many people actually do it :(

Yep - we use a lot of 1/4" thick Lexan (polycarbonate) sheet at work, so I cut the scrap to make nice flat "computer coasters" for all of mine.
