    i have it... i wouldn't recommend it. LED lights are unnecessary IMO, and i'd prefer a smaller case, this one is kinda huge.

    I have 2 of them, lots of cooling, you can adjust how much air the fans flow with the switches they have built in, lots of room for drives and longer video cards. It's well finished, no sharp edges.

    That being said, yes, they are not the prettiest case to look at, but how much time do you really spend looking at your case...

    I built a computer for a friend in that case. It got fantastic airflow and it was completely silent, but then I put in the SLI video cards he bought, and it got noisy again.

    Yea, I've got it. No complaints at all. Airflow is great, looks nice, easy to organize.

    There are a couple downsides to it but I wouldn't call them complaints. It's hard to keep clean because of how many openings there are and it's not the quietest case by any means. A little compressed air and turning it off overnight and it's all good. If I didn't have it in my room I wouldn't even mention the noise.

    Love the racing seat chair. "Bitch I game so fast I need a 5 point harness." But seriously, that is pretty sweet.

    I actually had a 5 point harness in it for a while, finally managed to sell it. The seat/harness came out of my old car.

    I'm happy with the case. I wish it was a little deeper. My RAID card has half of its ports on the very back and there is a half inch or so of clearance between it and my hard drives.

    built a computer with that case for my brother last week. its a very nice case, keeps itself cool. hes not running anything serious so all the fans but one are on low and its very quiet. i dont know if i really like having the power supply on the bottom instead of the top.

    Yea, I plan to at some point but I spent all my money on the monitors and PC. Not very high on the priority list, specially since they both work perfectly.

    I got my 900 for ~65 bucks shipped brand new after a $40 rebate... Lian-li's are nice but they are just so god damn expensive :o The 900 looks great and the price was pretty much unbeatable for a "nicer" case, so I grabbed it.

    I was between the 300 and the 900, but when I purchased they were within 10 bucks of each other total so I went for the 900. The little tray on top is actually really convienent, the wire management looks to be easier (the 900 has a few holes in it already vs. the 300 needing them all cut), and the big fan on top is just cool :mamoru:

    One last thing I just thought of as far as negatives:
    - The wires from the front input panel are a little short, I'm going to have to extend the power/reset/hdd light cables in order to hide them a little better. The usb/firewire/audio wires are a good length and come sheathed in black which is nice.

    -If your power supply has a short 4/8 pin CPU power cable then getting it up to the top of the mobo may be a problem. I ran mine behind the case then back out up at top through a small hole I dremeled and it was tight, but it made it.
