Overall extremely nice case for $110 after price matching.
Some internal pics of the case in the "case pics" section would be nice :)

Here you go guys, I didn't re size this one as small just so you guys could get a better look inside.

I put as many wires as i could behind the back side panel, there isn't much room behind that other side panel and motherboard tray though, i had to use electric tape to hold most of the wires in place just to get the other side panel back on.

My motherboards 4-pin connector is located at the top left of the motherboard, you cannot see it because of my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, but the 4-pin cable was long enough to run threw one of the slots at the bottom of the case, up behind the motherboard tray and out another slot in the case in the top left.

I took all the wires for the fans and put them behind the motherboard tray / other side panel. I had to use 3-pin male fan to 4-pin male molex power adapters. So the top 2 fans and the front fan are all wired behind. The rear exhaust fan is plugged directly into the motherboard.

Does the side panel bend at all when the wires are pushing against it?

the only problem i've had with my case is that the USB slots are too small to fit a USB inside, I had to bend the metal frame surrounding the USB slots to get it to work.

My side planel closed fine with all the wires behind it, but it took a lot of routing and electrical tape to get it that way, the first attempt to put the side panel on i barely used any tape and it would have went on, but it would have bent, so i routed all the wires and taped more off to get it just right.

it took quite a while but its more than doable :)

I am wondering, whats the maximum video card length for this case?
I am about to suggest this case to a friend, but that could be a deal breaker. (seeing how the 5870 is 11" long )
