Is there any issues with clearance between the back panel and mobo tray?

Zero issues. You can shove the whole lot of PSU cables back there still with plenty of room, you don't have to make it neat and tidy, hence the reason we didn't bother. There is a good inch or two between the ATX tray and where the side panel fits on.

You will noticed that the ATX tray ends before the venting along the back at right side starts. You will also notice that the panels fit outside the case (your not sliding "into" the case and reducing room).

So take the width of the side vents + smidge and that's your cable room



Check out the video at 6:02 and 6:16 to for an example

If I already owned a HAF or equally awesome case I wouldn't even consider buying this but I'm in the market for a case and this should work just fine.

Good review and I could hear you this time . Anyways I really like the case but it's very large, I wonder if they would make a smaller version like what Cooler Master did with the HAF maybe get rid of the extra space at the top for those without water cooling and cut the price some.

I almost passed out when I saw the white DVD drive. That's like an Austin Powers-sized hairy mole on the forehead of a supermodel.

I am looking for a new case and this pretty much solved the problem, other than the fact its not in stock.

I guess the only down side is the size of the case, I was hoping to go smaller. But this just seems so simple and easy that I'm willing to stay with a large case in exchange for how easy it is to manage wires.

The molded side window is a very nice touch, when these are available I think i am going to order one, and I think I'm even going to add a red cold cathode, i haven't had a cold cathode in a computer for a really long time.

Great review. Case looks great... Now lets just wait for them to be in stock!
