It's a lot better than I thought it was going to be to be honest.
I know that it's not something that can really be done on a case like this but some sort of cable management would be nice.

Pretty beefy for a lan case or infact any pc, but so many wires&no real way for a window. It's a shame that such a nice looking motherboard is completely out of view. Great first look/review though ttl! (and i certainly wouldn't say no to it, with the current state of my rig lol)

Not a bad solution, I do like the idea of the SSD carrier two mSata in raid. I do seem to remember a boost button on my old 486, think it's the last time I saw that item. Will have to wait for a full review to see how it handles the heat.

Really love the idea of a barebones, especially for some of my mates that im trying to get to go PC instead of the new consoles that don't wan the hassle of deciding on a all the parts separately. But why do they all have to subjectively ugly?

And they never worked

Looks like a AVC OEM heatsink to me. I believe it's called the napoleon. Handles about 130-150W tops I'd say (Btw, a deepcool lucifer handles 300W not 150)

It better not be louder than most headphones. 120mm 3600rpm is seriously loud and I know that having fans ranging from 1000rpm to 13300rpm
And also 4000rpm option for 290 ...

Cable management is atrocious. I thought the EVGA Hadron was atrocious but this is on another level

Nice review and nice Nightblade system but i like it more if Nightblade paint inside the case with full black and additional clear tempered glass / acrylic window would be great option. ps, cable management looks..need to be done
