    Really like the look of this case,
    a few concerns for me thou - its a bit big. I think if you wanted a big case this would be alright. Did I read that right the top cant take 280mm aio? But other then that has a lot to offer.

    One thing I noticed about case reviews (not necessarily this review) is that they often review cases with the given fans and check sound/temp levels. While good in some ways, not good in others. I suppose it would be hard to get a base line for cases seeing how they are all built differently. But some cases like the p500a have 3 front 40 fans 'stuck' on full speed (when reviewed) and one would have to read carefully to see this.

    anyways nice review and nice case; just may be too big for my next case.

    I do like how well built be quiet!'s cases are, but their designs have become boring, they have barely changed in years and aesthetics-wise there's far too many better or more interesting options.

    My last case (DBP 900) wasn't even particularly quiet, just weighed a ton

    I have an 801 and I'm positive the top rad mount tray has hole positions for 280mm rad/2x140mm fans and if you look at the photos on the hexus review you can see them too. It also sounds like they will be doing an upgrade pack for 801 users to upgrade the top case assembly and front panel. I'm hopeful they do this as the airflow out of rads at the top feels a bit constricted

    Looks like a really nice case, I wish more new cases would drop the PSU shroud, never been a fan of them.

    Is there anything you don't like about them particularly? I always preferred them as they cover up all the wires
