It’d be helpful if all front panel ODDs and other things were styled the same, but not so, usually.

You’re right. Others may not see it that way! I should have wrote, “otherwise this case would have been a winner ‘for me’.”

I don’t use ODDs too often, but I could see how it’d be really inconvenient if you do.

Much too inconvenient. Never again. Otherwise this case would have been a winner.

The two arms that fit down over the four bolts in each corner are adjustable to allow for different sockets and when tightened they shifted ever so slightly. This wasn’t apparent until the cooler itself was secured.

Contact is bang on as I removed the cooler to check where the thermal interface material was making contact so it became a non-issue as far as performance is concerned. Aesthetically speaking, you can be damned sure I’ll be fixing it for the next review.

The only downside is this slow move we will have to necessarily experience to USB 3.0. For a while it will limit the number of available frontal USB ports. I’d love an aggressive full frontal 4x USB 3.0 port version to be added to the windowed alternative. In fact, being Fractal Design so interesting in their KISS approach to design, it’s a little disappointing that they choose to go with form instead of function by offering instead a windowed version.

Also, what’s the reason why the Jing cooler showed up skewed? The motherboard’s or the actual cooler?
