This case is exactly what I was looking for. This case a big minimalistic black box that stays quiet no matter what is going on inside.

Really cool, quiet, and sexy looking.

I have built many systems in my day but may still be amateur when it comes to the PC building scene but this is the best case I have worked with great cable management and can fit a lot in this case for its size. The modular components allow you to fit the case around your components. The cooling of this case is excellent with noise at a minimum with all 8 of my fans running at low to medium speed. I would highly recommend this case to any one in the market even to those looking to do basic water cooling builds.

Solid, sleek understated look, and a good price for it. Good for both air and water cooling builds. Just make note that the window scratches very easily and they cannot be wiped off. So be careful with it or you'll have to live with a scratched window.

I was having trouble deciding on a case for my build. I eventually went with this and I'm glad that I did! It's super quiet, looks stylish/sleek, and has a large window for easy viewing. Highly recommend.

I LOVE this case. I had a few other options I was looking at, mainly from Corsair, but this case blew all the others out of the water. It is a bit expensive, especially when you're without a paying job, but at the same time, I'm very glad I saved up to get it. There is tons of cable management room, it's very sturdy, and it looks great. I love the size, and the white/black color scheme. I also like the 140mm fans included, as opposed to 120mm.

VERY quiet case, front panel door is a nice addition, also provides good airflow.

The drive mounting bays felt a little cheap but still of acceptable quality.

Pretty sizable case for ATX mid, had to run some cable through the front to make them reach.

First and best case I've ever had. ...I suppose all of these parts are the first of them I've ever had. But this is a really, really nice case. Everything is clearly thought out a lot by Fractal. No sharp edges; all hard drive cages and optical drive bays are removable; and the grommeted slots are placed well for anything that you could need to run a cable through. The front door's hinges can be switched to the other side, which is very nice. The design has no flashy aspects though; I guess it's a mature case choice. Overall it's great. -Afterthought- Mature it may be, but I guess I ruined that part with the LED lights. Whatever. I'm 15. I like shiny things.

Sleek, easy to handle with, higly customizable, can see all parts through the window. Although it's HUGE it barely fit where my old desktop fitted.

Great case. Lots of space for cable management, lots of features, good build quality, good design, and helps dampen sound as advertised. I did encounter difficulties trying to install a bottom fan, but that was more an issue of not having the necessary mounting tools than a fault in the case. Was also disappointed that I couldn't install the small HDD rack in place of the optical drive rack, but I'm not going to be nitpicky about that.
