I'm going to transfer from my current Gigabyte Poseidon case to this once the four CM Red R4's come in that I also ordered today.

Awesome! I was sold on that case until I found no Side WIndow included :(

Good luck with it mate, the R4 fans are awesome for what they are, and NCIX covers the 1 year warranty themselves and are very good about it.

Yeah the price is right for it but turned me off it cause no side window panel available.

I know the feeling, and I only have the 922. I constantly eye up the smaller cases. I used to have a CM elite, and it was very small and handy

Here are some pictures with my gear installed in the case. I decided to go with blue R4's because Coolermaster doesn't make a 140MM Red fan to replace the blue one that came with the case. I also ordered two more 140's for the top of the case and I now have my Noctua in a push/pull config. I sourced out some sleeving at a local electrical shop so most of the fans have been sleeved along with the front panel wires. Cable managment isn't the best but I hope to be going AM3 soon so I'll do it nicer once I can get some new components. A modular PSU would really be great and some more black sata cables would be nice.
