I REALLY wanted to give this case 5 stars, I REALLY did, but alas as with almost all cases there are some drawbacks
My initial thoughts on it was "oh man this is a gorgeous case." and it was. but after spending some time with it I realize some things could use improvement. This case is built with the same internals as the H440 which was fantastic. and I felt right at home installing parts into it. It had all the features I wanted and a few I didnt expect but was a welcome surprise. it included rear I/O LEDs which made connecting and tinkering in the dark a breeze, its only the second case I ever saw that comes with that built in, normally its a mod.
Side panels. PCI slot brackets PSU bracket, Hard drive cages, are all held together with thumb screws. Which I think was great but those screws come pretty torqued out of the box so unless you got insane gripping power, you're gonna need a screw driver to loosen them.
as with the H440, the motherboard standoffs come pre-installed for ATX motherboards, which was right up my alley and my motherboard itself almost took up all the space. While making it little tricky to place my motherboard it also filled my case up nicely, leaving just enough room for my USB 2, HD Audio, and front I/O connectors
The NXZT logo and LED strip on the bottom of the case are a very nice touch to the matte black finish of the case, but...for $140 I would have liked to have seen RGB LEDs instead of red, something Phanteks pulled off well with their Enthoo Luxe, which NZXT is competing against with this case.
Cooling for this case is phenomenal. Comes pre-installed with 3 120 mm fans in the front and a 140 mm fan in the back. and can add another 3 120 mm fans or 2 140 mm fans on top. It has support for radiators on top, rear and front. the top even has enough clearance for radiators configured for push/pull while not eating up space in front of your motherboard. So good job, NZXT for that.
The finish of this case, while looking fantastic, felt cheap and in my personal opinion is the biggest issue with the case. I found out the hard way that it is very easy to scratch.
Lastly the only other gripe I have with it, is I wish all the cutouts came with rubber grommets

Slick design and has a lot of room. The PSU shroud is really nice and the red led beneath it is the icing on the cake :)

The best looking case on the market, this thing is a beauty. It's also packed with numerous feature and has many good case fans which creates great airflow in case. Even if I had an extra £2000 I'd still buy this case. Comes with a fan hub, LEDS, a great window and many fan slots (7x120 or 5x140)

For the most part a good case. Easy to build in. Only real complaint is that the top and bottom cable cut-outs don't have rubber grommets. The sleek phantom-like steel body combined with the H440 chassis is great, though. Includes built-in red LEDs.

• Great design for gaming
• Enough ventilation on the front for sufficient cooling
• It comes with a PSU shroud where you can mount two 2.5" drives
• The paint can get scratched easily
• Cable management is a problem because of how limited the space you have inside
• You are stuck with the default red LEDs attached on the case
• Putting on the side panels can be difficult because of the cables using all the space inside the case
• The acrylic window on the side panel gets scratched very easily without effort

I love this case so much. It is so slick, with its matte finish, and built in LED cathodes on the bottom. It screams "Show Off". And that is exactly what I was looking for.

Very nice and strong. It is large and therefore easy to work in with lots of easy cable management. Only con is there is no optical drive bay but its beauty makes up for that and an external drive is always an option.

Super cool. Super sexy. Easy cable management. Just hard to get 280mm radiator up top, so do that before you mount the motherboard.
