I am very pleased with it. More room than one might think, and very good build quality. Plus I got the USB 3.0 version.

That being said my case has neither side covered, so I guess your point never crossed my mind...

I did this build in 2006. The door had to be replaced. It's hinge had cracked, which is very common problem with the Chieftec cases. We were lucky to find pristine donor case. The owner is retired employee from Harley Davidson. He doesn't game, but wanted to revamp his 8 yr old hardware without breaking the bank. We found him a good deal on decent hardware that will serve his needs for long time.

Updated the LED lighting to true Orange color with the Darkside Modding new PC light strips, PC LED LIGHTS



Gave updated hardware Diamond plate accents
Polished Aluminum Diamond Plate Sheets
