Harribo2014, If you have already ordered it, I think our opinions of it do not really matter. However, it seems to get fairly good reviews from most people. The main drawback with the case seems to be that there is very little space between the motherboard and the rear panel, making cable management very difficult. Cable management is important both for looks and for airflow inside the case. Poor cable management inside the case impedes airflow and makes the components run hotter. It also has a front panel USB 3.0 connection. The connection has no motherboard header so must be routed outside the case an plugged into the USB 3.0 ports on the rear of the case. An adapter can be purchased to convert it to an internal motherboard header. It also has limited fan options, if noise is a concern for you. 120mm fans are the largest that come with the case, but can be converted to 140mm fans if you purchase extra fans. That matters because again, airflow is very important in a computer and the smaller the fans the higher the RPMs have to be to put out a sufficient amount of air. The higher the RPMs, the more noise created. In my opinion, I'm sure you considered price when making the purchase. But, once you consider the adapter for USB 3.0 and 4 quality fans to improve airflow. The cost increases to where you could have bought a better case without some of the problems the Zelman has and had an easier and better build. I cannot over emphasize the importance of very good airflow inside a computer. Heat is the biggest enemy of all computer components.

I'm glad you like the case. cases are pretty personal decisions, as long as they provide the basic functions, especially good cooling. What I may like, you may not and vice versa. It is up to personal preference, as long as there is good cooling and they will hold what you need to put in them.

Couldn't agree more, its down to personal opinion. like on my next build i have decided to ditch the led lights.

Really bad decision. Everyone knows red lights makes your computer faster. I thought you knew that. The right stickers help too.

It's actually 1GHz if you have a matching mouse with red LEDs on it.

No red means your overheating. Blue however is the boss.
