  1. Nice case, truly huge, lots of things I like including the nearly silent fans/virtually silent operation, and well designed air flow, etc, but some things to be aware of: 1) Screws easily get lost in the bottom where there's no way to get them out. The get trapped between 2 metal sheets at the bottom of the case where the air inlet is. 2) Related, getting the screws in and out of the 3.5" bay to mount a floppy or whatever is way too hard. I don't think you need to replace them, just use the fast mount button like other drives, and leave them out, but still it bothers me the screws are trapped in the fast mount button plastic area or in between the metal plates surounding the internal drive cage. 3) The thumb screws holding expansion cards are under a lip that holds the side plate, and aren't very convenient to access. Very easy to get the screws going in sideways since you can't easily get to them straight-on. 4) You better have long power supply lines to get from the PS at the bottom back to e.g. CD drive at the top front. The ones that came with my Corsair HX PS worked, but just barely. Second, smaller MB PS connection was real tight -- I had to run the wire under the MB in a direct a path as possible from the PS to the connector on the to/far side of the MB to get it connected. 5) Theres no documentation explaining how to install the little dust catcher that fits behind the graphics card air duct. Still not sure if I installed it correctly or up-side-down. Just my opinion... -Craig
