Overall impressed with this case. I should be able to fit my graphics card (its a 2.5 slot card but 319 mm). which is a big plus, as I have had a hard time finding a case that would support it.

setup looks relatively easy and I do like the custom liquid cooling setup it has. Hardware Canucks didn't like the placement of the front IO, but I think it shouldnt be an issue. The placement was probably done there so that the won't be cable spew coming out the top(which is the alternative place).
