Just watched the review and so much want on this case and another top review Tom, and you could see the poor girl copped a hammering as the top radiator mounts were all bent out of shape.

yeah next build going in this one. Great review but a question. on the back of the mobo tray there's 2 screw points, are those meant for a secondary spot to mount those ssd caddies??

I'd have to sacrifice 2Tb of storage but this case would be so much worth it, and I have a lovely spot for it to sit. I'm really surprised at the low price tbh was expecting it to be out of what I'd consider case value

Holy crap that is two 200mm fans in the front correct? *bang*. Please excuse the bang, that was my head exploding. God *damn* that looks mean. I love it !

Only thing I don't like about it and I am being super picky is the roller coaster struts up the sides. Other than that? yeah, that's a case man.

Edit just watched the vid, cheers for that Tom. Another very very minor complaint is that I would like GPU cable holes in the floor shroud below the GPU. So you can have them coming up perfectly straight into your GPU from the floor pan like I did with my Triad build. Best way to achieve this is with little covers that screw on from behind so that if you don't use them the floor is still solid (big positive that the floor is all one piece and so on).

I also like how the cable side is not glass, plastic or anything else see through. We had a bit of a debate on another forum recently about that side of the case and it was pretty much unanimous that no one wanted it to be glass. It only means you have to spend hundreds of pounds on custom cables made to length etc etc if you want it to look every bit as good as the rest of your rig, and thus was better solid. So congrats to CM for not being plebs and making that glass. Stupid dumb idea needs to go away ASAP thx m8 gr8.

But yeah, lots to like about this and the dual 200mm intake is mental and something we should have seen long ago IMO.

Thanks you Sire I was hoping that was the case. I dont mind losing my 3.5 HDD storage but losing my small ssd/hdd storage for a thick rad would be disappointing.
