Tested, and proven to not decrease any temperatures using identical hardware, when using a White Prodigy instead of a Black.

Even when watercooling and using a 200 or 240mm in the front?

Not necessarily a 200mm rad, but a 200mm fan.
Haven't tested with radiators on the front.

The only gripe I have about my BitFenix case (the Shinobi) was the cable management holes, well the frabics/plastic around it would pop out of the hole in the physical case. Wasted/spent a good amount of time trying to get it back in while running cables.

Beyond that I've been loving the case for months.

Same here with my Shinobi White and Shinobi Black XL I fought with the rubber guards for a long time before I just gave up on them.

Love both cases though

Rubber guards, that's what they were made of. I couldn't remember just that it was a major pain in the ass.
