There's a plethora of features here that should satisfy just about any system builder - five fans (one of which is a massive 250mm), room for 11 drives, liquid cooling readiness, and a front control panel that can be moved to any area of the front bezel. It's a heavy beast of a case though, so it won't be the best choice for taking to a LAN.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION




One of the Styrofoam blocks was broken when I removed the case from the outer box, but the case itself didn't appear to be damaged. Whew!



The accessory box includes a PSU support bracket, a bag of screws and motherboard standoffs, wire ties, cleaning cloth, 90mm fan for installation at the top of the case, and instruction manual. Although in black and white, the manual does give plenty of pictures to aid with every part of the installation process.
