    Pros
    - Solid Build Quality
    - Sufficient space for most custom builds
    - Great asthetics
    - Good Airflow
    Cons
    - Can be tight with several HDDs and dual graphics cards (dual 5850s in my case)

    Summary
    I have had this case for over 2 years now and it has been great. For dual graphics cards, it may be a little tight if you are a media hog and have several hard drives, but I've managed.

    Pros
    nice design, easy hdd access
    Cons
    lack of rear panel space for running cables
    Summary
    great case, nice look, the adjustable fan speeds are nice and the blue leds look great, the fleet release doors and built in hot swap drive are nice touches, only bad things are the lack of cable space behind the rear panel, recent upgraded to an nzxt phantom 410 and love it, but the df30 is still a great case

    Pros
    Swanky look, quality parts. Smart design. Lots of screws and fasteners included. Great packaging/packing.
    Cons
    Although a larger case, cable management seemed tight. Not impossible to keep things organized, but planning was needed and creative use of tip ties.
    Summary
    A big update  case for me, not one problem with performance. Quiet as can be expected. I like the adjustable fans, removable filters, subtle lighting.

    The sata drive on the top of the case seemed like an afterthought, or gimmick. Maybe I'd use it if some weird circumstance came up, but not in the year I've owned it.

    Anyway, great case and for $120, it's a proper investment.

    Pros
    -LEDs are fantastic
    -Good ventilation for a mid tower
    Cons
    -Bad cable management
    -Could have better features for the price
    Summary
    I got it on special for somebody. I must say I had a bad time with the cable management and this case doesn't have what other gaming cases I work with have (clips for the HDDs, clips for the dvd drives, removable parts, etc.). Since it was on special I guess it's good for a budget PC, but there's better cases for a few more bucks. I guess Antec is jsut not my style.. But Yeah it does the job.

    Pros
    black interior
    amount of fans for price
    pretty quiet with fans on low
    great air flow
    blue leds(top fan has none)
    fan filters
    Cons
    expansion slot covers are punch out and can not be re-added
    could have longer front panel connecters
    Summary
    My favorite case I have owned and I am kind of surprised there are not more reviews for this one. Price matched but I still would have went with it even without the PM.

    2 exhaust fans(rear 120mm and top 140mm) and 2 intakes(front 120mm). The intake fans have easily removable fan filters on them. The filter really trap a lot of dust and after 3 months there is very little dust inside the PC.

    I purchased the Antec TriCool 120mm blue led case fan for the side window and also got a Mod Right fan filter to add to it since the case does not offer one. Adjustable fan speed and with all fans on low it cools well without being loud.

    You also add and remove the hard drives from the front door which is great. Fit everything into it with room to spare including my Zalman cooler which is quite big. I am really happy about the room because I did not have the space for a full ATX and the cheaper price of a mid ATX was nice as well. It also has a black interior and a spot to help a bit with cable management. It also has a cut out where the CPU fits to be able to add after market CPU coolers without taking the mobo back out, although I never tryed as this was a new build and I installed it on the mobo before placing in the case.

    The only thing I would have liked would be removable expansion slot covers. The ones on the case have to be punched out and can not be re added but its not that big of a deal and maybe slightly longer cords for the front panel connectors.

    Pros
    Strong durable body, lots of expansion bays, supreme cooling, and LED lighting is very nice
    Cons
    Very heavy when loaded
    Summary
    A must buy for the gamers, moders, and extremists. Its got that bad a$$ look. It runs quiet and the adjustable fans defo rock. Best case i've ever had.

    Pros
    Top mounted easy access SSD drive Bay.
    Easy access to the front fan filters for cleaning.
    Led lights on three of the 4 case fans, creates a nice look.
    More hard drive bays than i know what to do with.
    Flat black both inside and outside adds to the image.
    Side vent with clear wall allows extra air flow, and an optional 4th fan.
    Cons
    Hard to open the covers over the CD/DVD rom bays.
    Summary
    This tower is amazing and I'm absolutely thrilled to be the first one to write a review on NCIX in regards to this product. I made no mistake in ordering this and I am happy to say that i have a case that is going to last me for a very long time. There is more than enough drive bays to add as many hard drives as one needs. The design is superb and that is important as people need to realize that your tower is also apart of the decor in a room. The LED (Blue) lights in the fans are not over done and add to the over all look and feel of the tower. The top mounted SSD drive is an excellent feature as it allows easy access to a SSD drive without taking your computer apart to get at it.

    10 out of 10 in my books!

    Brian B.
