Thanks for the review Tom.
I agree on most of your concerns about this case.
Thumbscrewed PCIe-brackets...pop-outs cheapens the case quite a bit imo.
Another few mill for cable management and a cut out for the 8-pin.
When it comes to rad support up front....meeh..not for me. Unless there are other measurements in place to have a fully functional and filtered reversed airflow through the case, Id rather just go with air cooling.
The only point I miss in this review is tests to show how good of a job this case does at silencing.
I think any review of a silence optimized case should include some figures to highlight and prove this apparent feature.
