    Personally I don't mind it at all, except those damn ugly top handles.

    Great review as always guys.

    With all the extra motherboard tray next to the psu at the bottom it would have been so easy to cut a couple of holes to allow unwanted psu cables to be routed and secured behind the tray.

    Agree with the above, I can see some pretty cool projects coming up with this case. The black chassis looks really slick, I want to get my CM Stacker painted/powder coated like that.

    Hmm, It reminds me of the Jerry cans we used in the desert, the black ones did have a white cross on them though to denote water
    (cooling)??

    There's really not a great deal of room behind the mobo tray tray. Unlike the sniper, there's no bowed panels to stash cables in.

    I like this version of the case a lot more then the other model, one reason is it doesnt have that large ugly knob on it

    Good review, guys, as always.

    I really like the integrated handle, and the fact that it's both parallel and perpendicular. Nice touch. The price, though... ugh. Granted, I'd rather pay a slight bit more and get a more solid case that I could just mod to my specs, but it's understandable about day-to-day people that really need a decent chassis for that kick-butt LAN party coming up.

    I must say I like the inside - simple, functional, not over-engineered. But the outside is just ugly, IMHO... Why is it so hard to make the outside sleek? Some people just don't want handles, ridges, windows, etc...

    I like it except the usb panel at that angle.. you'd have to have the case on the ground to be practical

    The front intake fan is 140mm, not 120mm as stated in review.

    I would also mention that both side panels are interchangeable. You can swap left to right side, vice versa. I don't predict many people doing this, but it's rare you see this.

    Another interesting note about the raised center portion of the side panels, CM designed the panels this way to accommodate taller heat sinks.

    I only know this because CM sent me sample to mod for upcoming Computex show.
