As expected!

Case is just as I had expected - high quality product, solid - does the job I purchased it for. The front cover for the ports is nicely designed and the power button is very tactile.

It fits my Arctic Silencer Pro 64 cooler with a fraction of room to spare, but there's not much cable management space, so everything's a bit messy - highly recommend a modular PSU for this and to get extension cables for the 12v and 24-pin power cables, as you need to route them along the edges of the case if you're planning on keeping things tidy, even so its tricky in such a small case to keep cables out of fans..

Its also worth noting that the original specification of this case had an internal USB 2.0 header branching off the supplied usb 3.0 header for the front ports - it appears Fractal Design changed this specification and it only ships with USB 3.0 internal header cables. As not all material & online reviews reflect this, I've had to make this additional purchase of a header converter cable, as my motherboard only has external USB 3.0.

Happy with the purchase otherwise - the top of the case does attract fingerprints, fortunately its going into a cabinet.

Great case - but be aware that using a full ATX board and non-modular power supply makes it tricky to install, as you might expect.
