I have it and I love it. It had great cooling and its not very loud, plenty of space to work in. Its a little rough around the edges. tiny things like the thumbscrews may need a screwdriver to get in, groments on the cable routing holes are lose. Just makes the build take an extra 10 Minutes. But you aren't going to find another case with these specs for this price. I had looked at the HAF series and couldn't even find one that had the features I wanted. there are lots of good professional reviews available. If you want user input I would suggest reading the newegg reviews. www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681114705...

I ordered mine before they switched to the USB 3.0 motherboard header, so I had out the back cables. I emailed rosewill last week and in less than a week they have shipped the new part for free, with an invoice on my newegg account. so +1 for customer service. I am sure they'd help with things like broken or loud fans a few people have gotten from UPS being rough.

Thanks for the great info. The review was great (found out some interesting stuff). One of the reviews I read said that the power cable for the motherboard (PSU on bottom and the Mb connector near the top) didn't reach. Anyone have this problem?

If I get this case it will be the white one as I'm tired of black cases.

The comment about the manufacturer sending the replacement parts is very good. When I built my current PC last year,I used the NXZT phantom case. The fan controller and one fan with led (LED part)didn't work. I emailed them and sent the replacement parts out pronto.

Not to go off topic here. Whats the difference between usb 2.0 and 3.0.

OK, USB3 is faster than USB2, so if u get a USB pen drive or USB external drive, the transfer speeds are much higher with USB3. USB3 is blue.

If u don't have USB3 device and u will use USB3 port, it is backwards compatible, but it will use the speed of the lowest device plugged in.
