I wanted extra intake airflow so I added a HDD converter bay just for the added intake fan.
Does the job but was a bit of a pain to swap out the coolermaster fan because of the way they mount it. Also cleaning the dust filter will be a real PITA but I did a ghetto mod on it to make it easier.
Coolermaster STB-3T4-E3 3X5.25IN to 4X3.5IN Drive Bay Convertor Silver Black W/ 120MM Fan - COOLERMASTER - STB-3T4-E3-GP

I really like it.
- I was put off by the amount of plastic but most of it is sturdy stuff where it is needed so I can live with it.
- The steel is pretty thin but manageable and it does keep the weight down.
- By far the best cable management I've ever had in a case.
- Love the looks of it with black/white contrast.
- I added the drive bay converter (above) and another 120mm intake on bottom by the PSU so It should have good positive pressure airflow.
- Has a ton of connections (even though I only use a few of them)
- Lots of room to work inside (I always get huge cases for this reason)
- The way they compartmentalize things is a bit strange but I didn't have any problem with it.
- The hot swap drive power worked very well for me.
- Gimmicky looks... but hey I'm a geek so that's a good thing. :p
