abunda_amazon_reviews I bought this case for its sound reduction, flexibility, and optical drive cage. I successfully followed the steps to invert the motherboard. I'm running a front-mounted CPU AIO water cooler, a bug 1600W power supply, a big threadripper board and 2 GPUs (for now; plan to add more). I have 2 HDDs installed in the lower double HDD tray near the power supply. Great so far. I found it pretty easy to invert, using the online video provided by bequiet, as well as some other guides. The manual is terrible, so video guides are recommended. I did run into problems (like most others) with screws dropping into a crevice where it's extremely difficult to remove. I would recommend that bequiet fixes this in future versions. Main complaints/annoyances: * The design doesn't let you use the off/on switch and plug from your own power supply. Instead, the PSU must be hidden back in the case, and connected via an auxillary internal power cable to the case's own on/off switch. This was done to simplify the design for the invertible layout, but a different solution would have been prefered. First, I don't like adding in this extra strange internal cable. More importantly, this cable isn't rated for use with high-wattage PSUs. My PSU (Corsair 1600W) has a different plug, which isn't compatible with the one in the case. My only options were to 1) return the PSU, 2) return the case, 3) remove the mesh on the back of the case and use the power supply switch buried inside the case, and be content with a big "hole" in the back of the case with no mesh cover. I opted for #3 for simplicity, but it's annoying. Recommendations: a) bequiet should produce a workaround mesh component for users like me, and b) I recommend not buying this case if you need a big power supply (e.g., for deep learning with lots of GPUs). * The plastic tabs holding the side panel's "be quiet" logo and side ventilation setup are flimsy; one broke when I first touched it. However, bequiet has shipped me a replacement piece, so A+ to them for customer support on this issue! Most of the case seems durable but some of the plastic tabs are problematic. * The tempered glass panel is difficult to insert/remove compared with other cases. It's too easy to drop it since it is only supported by the thumbscrews, not by a rail on the bottom. becareful! * One of the front I/O connectors wasn't connected to the case PCB on delivery, which was confusing. Additionally, the PCB-connected I/O cables aren't labeled, so I was worried about mixing them up. I found out later (at the end of the bequiet case inversion video) that the connectors are all keyed differently to avoid any mistakes, but the manual doesn't mention this, so I wasted time by making my own labels for each cable. As I said above, the manual is terrible (little information, and very bad diagrams). * Inverted layout: several steps involving the back mesh and PSU connection make it very easy to lose screws, even when you're being careful. It's hard to describe, but even when I knew the hazard I kept running into the problem. This could probably be fixed by adding a hole somewhere in the long "screw-eating' rail so that a screw could slide out. As is, that screw is stuck until you find very tiny tools/tweezers/etc to coax the screw back out the crevice. Microscopic surgical tools are advised. * Front radiator vs optical drive cage. The front setup isn't as flexible as I hoped. I thought there would just be room for my 360 radiator plus the optical drive cage, but the radiator mounts higher than I expected. I ended up giving up and removing the optical drive cage temporarily, until I can switch to a smaller rad or rig up something different. I'd recommend a 240 max if you want to use the optical drive cage, unfortunately. Honestly, there should easily be room for at least 1 of the two optical drives plus the 360, but I couldn't make it work yet, since the installation requires room for two drives instead of just one. * Width: the cable-routing side should have been slightly deeper. For such a big case I expected a little more breathing room with the cable routing. Instead, it's really easy for cables to press up against the side panel's alternate ventilation area and pop the panel out from the inside! Overall I still like the case, but it's not as great as I expected from all the rave reviews/awards. Still plenty of room for improvement.

But expect your build to take some serious time; this is not a case where you remove the side panels and bolt everything in.

A flexible, premium case with a few drawbacks
I bought this case for an AMD Threadripper 2990wx build. For background, I build PCs for myself, my small business, and the occasional family member. I have done it regularly for decades, but I am not a professional. This case is a tinkerer's dream. Everything can be adjusted and moved. I used a large AIO water cooler, necessitating a drop in the motherboard location (easily done with a few screws). A custom loop should be easy as well for the more adventurous. There is plenty of space for my E-ATX X399 motherboard, and I was still able to get an optical drive despite my large top-mounted radiator. Now the cons: I have the "rev 2" version. While the more modern front panel is appreciated, the finicky PSU shroud is a pain to add and remove, and the actual PSU installation is also a headache as others have documented because it is bolted to an internal bracket rather than the bottom corner of the case. Space behind the motherboard is barely adequate for a case that potentially has a lot of cabling; I spent hours arranging and tying down cables, and it was still a pain to get the back panel to slide smoothly on and off. I was unable to get my 2.5cm thick Seasonic ATX power cable to run behind the board and had to leave it in front. This is a great case for larger, more complex custom builds. But expect your build to take some serious time; this is not a case where you remove the side panels and bolt everything in. Expect to strip it down to the bare frame, re-position most of the parts, and spend time carefully spreading, flattening, and tying the cables behind the back panel. If you don't have the need or the patience for the flexibility this case offers, I would consider an alternative.
