    Thanks for the review.
    Noise-wise, how does this compare with say the Fractal R5?

    Also, is there space to mount the front 120 intake fan on the bottom of the case if I remove the drive bays? (I'd be putting a 240 aio rad in the front).

    I like the looks of this case and the front leds should match up nicely with my Hue+ kit, but I need a quiet case for audio production. (cost isn't really an issue, just like the cute looks of this case and the led/fan controls)

    Cheers

    It's nice to see more of these mid sized cases with lots of options for wiring and cooling setups.
    Going to have a hard time choosing between this, the NZXT S340 and the Carbide 400C... I'm a bit of a sucker for NZXT cases these days but Phanteks and Corsair do offer some nice alternatives that are getting tempting.

    Out of curiosity, is there any reason why you didn't include the S340's temperatures on the cooling performance table? It seems a little odd that it's not included on there when the case is being used as a sort of comparison.

    Yep. The S340 was tested in our older labs. We now test in a new location with new equipment, and as much as we'd love to go through and retest a bunch of older hardware, there just isn't time!
