Excellence in build quality and case design

It is always a pleasure to work with a product that is designed with a great deal of insight into the needs of its users and which is manufactured to exacting standards.

This case is large. It's heavy, but features like the pull-out motherboard shelf, the quick release 3.5 and 5.25 inch bays, and the lack of sharp edges make it a genuine pleasure to use. Cards are similarly held in by quick release levers, and the goal of a toolless case is tantalizingly close.

The case is laid out very logically with respect to compartments, and the ventilation is good, with plenty of room to buy cable. However, be very careful that you check to see that your particular CPU is supported by the liquid cooling system. My new Intel i7 is not, so I had to take the excellently built LCS out, and it sits on my shelf. Further, be certain you really want or need an LCS, because you have to change the coolant every six months or so, just like you have to change the coolant in your car. If you're using this to play games on it, then that's one thing, but if you are using it to also store critical data, then I think there's a risk of a coolant spill every time you change the fluid.

The case, even without being able to use the LCS is a joy to own. The manual pictures are too small and the English in the manual is not great, but once you "get" the innovations in this design, you won't have to rely on them too much.
