Installation

Installation into the case was hit or miss. There are several things that make this a very nice case to install into, but then it has it's downsides that make it difficult to use too. Do enough installs, and you're bound to find a feature that you just don't like. For me, it's the attached blanks. I don't know why manufacturers still do this. Just spend the extra bit of money to make some replaceable blanks, please. If your install is a permanent one that isn't likely to add or remove extra cards, it probably doesn't annoy you as much as it does me. It took me almost 5 minutes to get the front bezel open. Not the biggest thing, but I've gotten used to just pulling the front off. Here, you've got to open the case, and pop the retainer. The top and back fan stuck out a bit from the frame of the case making it almost impossible to put in the retainer screws for the motherboard with the PCU cooler installed. Not a huge deal, unless you've got your cooler pre-installed on the board, like I do. The bays for the 3.5” drives have retainer clips that hold the drives and make it nearly impossible for them to ever slide out when you don't want them to.
