Love the case. It is so darn gorgeous. It was easy to do cable management with this case, and I am pretty impressed with it, since it is my first build. Was asking to have nightmares with cable management, but everything went smoothly.

from completed build RX 480 FTW!!!

Actually I give it 4 stars, but it looks so good, I just can't. Cons: I had problems with screwing thumbscrews on the side panels, just couldn't get it in the right position. Too small area inside to use screwdriver to fix all the fans and there is a lot of that lovely red paint to scratch. Pros: Nice looking, nice big window, nice lighted NZXT logo, light over I/O panel, fan controller which can be PWM driven.

I am absolutely thrilled with this case. 100% worth the higher price. This thing was so easy to build with. I love NZXT's attention to detail. All the front panel connectors and extensions were LABELED. Amazing. The NZXT sticker to cover the upside down logo. A built in fan-hub, cool led's, the curved side panels were easy to remove (although I did have a tiny bit of trouble putting them back on and getting the thumb screws to thread) and offer bountiful cable management space. There's room for 2 ssd's and 3 more hdd's if you want to go crazy with it. I could go on and on about this case, hard to imagine building with anything else at this point to be honest. Only downside is that it ONLY fits micro ITX mobos so no room for expansion or SLI but you knew that already if you were getting this case. I'll probably upgrate to a better graphics card down the line but that'll be easy enough.

:YES! This not so little guy was a shock for me cause I was looking for corsair 240s but when I saw this little trooper I knew it was made for me! Comes with 2 pull 1 push fans(which is great air flow with the design of the case's inside) also it has white LED brand logo(its huge and aesthetic and another LED for motherboards I/O panel[for you to see cables in dark enviroment]).Best part about it it's PSU shroud that hides your PSU from your eyes,provides great aesthetic and more cable management area and thats where the LED brand logo is.I could talk more about it but you can read some nice articles from professionals.its just I loved it :)

from completed build Manta Revived for Fiance

The prettiest Case imo that has been created. I really wish NZXT would remodel this case for MATX. Very tight space to build in but the curves just make the case beautiful.

Large ITX case, gives plenty of room to work in. Only gripe with it is working with AIOs and longer graphics cards leaves very little room for error. Cable management is really easy, but the cables to the graphics card have nowhere to hide, leaving a large cable loop in the window that is super noticeable.
