Pros: Elegant, Simple DesignDust Filters GaloreFantastic Cable Management OptionsFan ControllerSurprisingly Deep For A Mid-TowerRemovable HDD Cages
Comment:
..the minor gripes aside (which are really minor), this case is an absolute must-own...first non-Cooler Master case I've ever owned and I'm sold on Fractal Design...if you don't want/need a gigantic Full Tower, this case is a MUST OWN!!...

Cons: -Plastic front feels cheap-Not as quiet as Define R4-Window came scratched

Pros: -Looks nice, especially with window-Comes with nice fans-Fans have dust filters-Cable management is good-Flexible and can fit long GPUs-Plastic looks nicer than plastics used by competitors-Good price
Comment:
Very nice chassis for those that like fractal design. I like the looks but an not a huge fan of the plastic front. For the price I really thing some sort of metal should be used. I really like all the fan filters and the included fans move a good mount of air and are not too loud. There is a lot of hard drive trays and this easily fit a bequiet Shadow Rock 2. Not as silent as my define R4 but the airflow makes up for it. Overall a very solid chassis that I don't hesitate to recommend.

Cons: The front USB 3.0 ports were both bent so bad to where you cant plug anything in it even trying to force it. The headphone and mic jacks are both bent inside not allowing anything to be plugged in and the fan controller only sets to 7v or 12v. Make sure you check these things before putting your stuff together.

Pros: Beautiful case, great cable management.

Cons: Wish the filter material wasn't foam!Included fans are quiet but don't push a lot of air!

Pros: Looks,air-flow,build quality!
Comment:
This case was very easy to build in!Cable management is excellent!Air-flow is great.Very spacious for a mid-tower.Will fit the longest gpu and tall air-coolers.(170mm)Side window is designed properly!(I prefer not to look at drive cages)By far the best case I've built in and there has been a few.Some costing more!

Cons: About the only con I can think of is no Sound dampening material.

Pros: Style: Love the curved angles, the brushed aluminum-esq paint on the front panel and the side windowFunctionality: the Front fan filter is well designed ( pop on/off), and the underbottom filter is extra long, filtering not only the PSU but the bottom intake fan grill.Also I appreciate how the front panel inputs are connected to the case, not the front panel itself.Cable management is excellent/amazing. Almost a full inch in the back, no buckling on the back side panel. Never had a tidier interior.
Comment:
My favorite case to date. Absolutely love it. Worth every penny.

Cons: fan controller only has three lines

Pros: plenty of room, excellent cable management and air flow
Comment:
Great case and well worth the money when on sale. Excellent air flow and cable management. Removable HDD cages are great but I wish the 3.5" bays were tool-less.

Cons: None

Pros: -Lot of Fan Slots-Good Design-Sleek

Going from a Cosmos 1000 to this is amazing. Loads of room for drives/fans etc while being much smaller. Great airflow and nice cable management.

Cons: -taller and wider if you're coming from an old mid tower case (see my old model above), measure your location first to see if it will fit (I have it on the desk top because it will not fit on the usually tower spot below, and the back fan is about 1/2" away from the hutch). No noise issue from this that I can tell, but almost restricted top exhaust.-Had to use special drive screws for the SSD and HDD, but they install on rubber washers to reduce vibration on the mounting bracket.-Small vibration noise coming from the bottom dust filter if moved a certain way, but I haven't heard it lately. Might be bothersome if you move your case a lot (you can see part of the filter plastic on the inside bottom of the case and if you use black tape it might stop the vibration, but I haven't tested that theory).-Bottom filter can be annoying to remove and put back as the case itself doesn't slide well with the rubber feet, but I would rather have rubber feet to reduce vibration on the desk.-Didn't come with fan connection splitter if you have more than 3 case fans you want to use with the speed control. I ended up using the one that came with my NH-D14.-Foam filters might be an issue to clean as I'm used to that from my old case, but easier access might offset this as I can clean it more often without hassle-No tool-less installation of drives, but not a hassle with the aid of thumb screws at least

Pros: -If you love thumb screws you won't be disappointed.-extra thumb, special drive, and "standard" case screws come in the accessories box; all black.-Removable front filter without taking off the bezel.-Top can be taken off with thumb screws to clean filter.-3 supplied fans are silent enough that it's not that bothersome on all fan speed settings-Rubber feet to reduce desk vibration-Tinted glass-Rubber grommets for cable management-Can use three 140mm on top or one larger one (have to check what size), two 140mm in the front, 140mm on bottom and rear-Lots of room to work with in my opinion-Noise dampening foam filters on top and front, not on the bottom, but not needed-removable drive cages for longer video cards and reducing airflow restriction
Comment:
Retired case: Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05It's so hard to think of all the good and bad things about this case, but overall I'm 100% satisfied with my decision. Coming from an old case, this is a HUGE improvement. Not only for noise, but for airflow, cleaning, and workroom.It has all the things that I wanted in a new case.140mm fan spots with the possibility of a larger fan on top. I have to look into this some more.A side window as I was tired of a vent.Front dust filter without removing the bezel is what really sold me.I recommended this to a couple friends who are going to be doing a build sometime soon.I will update  if I think of anything else.A+ case This review was modfied by poster @ 10-17-13 04:21 PM

Cons: 5.25 bay clearance to upper 240mm Rad

Pros: Easy to build in, Clean lines
Comment:
This case is the latest iteration of my watercooled build. Went in easy, lots of cable managment space and ability to run water tube behind motherboard tray. Looks great except fot the tight squeeze between upper 240mm rad and the 5.25 bays. Could have used 1 inch more for comfort.

Cons: -none I can think of

Pros: -Sleek and minimalist-Well built-Easy to cable manage-Fan control included-Silent default fans
Comment:
I've always wanted a fractal case for the sleek and quite oriented design. This is just the perfect case for me, spacious enough for hefty builds and it's sturdy enough to support it.I have a huge enclosed water cooler in it and it wasn't hard to fit it in. I'm also happy with the space provided as I could easily manage the cables.
