Pros...

The gunmetal front door is stunning and very practical with the double joint. Really like the storage configuration with the 2x dedicated SSD bays. Great amount of internal space for air cooling and XL-ATX boards. Fantastic all round case and great value.

Cons...

Fan controller is a little fiddly,
