Conclusion

I like this case, the finish on the front and top is excellent and it generally feels very refined. No corners were cut when making this case, except perhaps the lack of USB 3.0 ports on the front. Now that more and more USB 3.0 compatible devices are appearing and other motherboards support it I believe new cases should throw you a couple on the front, having to reach around to the back of the PC to insert or remove your USB 3.0 flash drive, for example, gets annoying.

In conclusion this case, apart from that lack of USB 3.0, is a great PC case. If you’re looking for a well designed, mean-looking (but not overly flashy), quiet and durable mid tower I’d certainly recommend it.

Pros

  • Effective tool-free design
  • Well built
  • The SoftTouch treatment
  • Looks great
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Lack of USB 3.0 ports

  1. I have this case, and yes I love it too. Clean lines, no evidence of scratched/cut corners. Just amazing.

    About the lack of 3.0 ports. I must admit that it’s the only “let-down” of this case, but tbh my motherboard’s included 3.0 header solved the problem. Everyone should opt for motherboard that has one before buying this case.
