    I know many criticise the inclusion of RGB, but I would have liked the front RGB strips from the Dark Base 700 to be included here. I would also have preferred the Qi charger be omitted and the price reduced.

    Not a fan of doors on the case front, nor of tempered glass.
    The last Be-Quiet case I tried a build in turned out to be quite a compromise, as in either you had watercooling or you had drives and bay devices... not quite as versatile as advertisements implied.
    Oh, and cable management looks a touch tight...

    Other than that, looks quite nice.

    Lose the glass panel and this is essentially perfect. Now, if only I wasn't completely poor!

    No HDMI on front panel for VR and 5.25" bay covers is a fail on a case of this price?

    5.25 is a huge win.
    VR support is like genius after we were all told how good 3d was a while back .... good luck flogging that on ebay btw.

    seems a nice case to me dont like the door tho

    I wouldn't buy a case without 5.25" bays. This looks very good, wish there was a mesh front option. But the performance numbers in this test are promising either way.
