Unless there has been some drastic redesign, that case is horrible.
I went through two CPUs, 4 hard drives and 2 PSUs before I got 
newegg to accept the return with no restocking fee and store credit.

built from an old ugly server case.  Nice and cool, but really loud.
What do I care?  It's in a closet under the stairs.
