When selecting a two tone color scheme;
In the order comments please specify which parts of the case are to be which color.
Doors: black Flex-Bay covers: white PCI covers: black
Chassis: white Front cover: black Switch plate: white
Motherboard tray: white Top cover: black
Aluminum Construction: The case is made using heavy gauge all aluminum construction. Unlike some imports using thin aluminum (.040” - 1mm), our cases are made from .090” (2.3mm) for the frame and .063” (1.6mm) for the doors and covers for a case that can stand up to the rigors of large scale water cooling and frequent system tear-downs. Aluminum is much lighter than steel, dissipates heat better, and is easier to mod.
Quick Access: The doors and covers can be removed in seconds to facilitate access and minimize the chance of damaging exterior panels during a build. The doors are on hinges that allow them to easily swing out of the way for quick adjustments. The front and top covers snap on and off – no screws to slow you down or get lost. The “cover over frame” design allows the frame to be modified as needed without affecting the appearance of the completed build.
Slide-Out Motherboard Tray: The entire motherboard tray easily slides out and can be converted into a free standing tech station (with the included parts). Your build can be completely assembled and tested on a table top. No more working inside a cramped case trying to get everything in place. The tray is held in place with four self-retaining thumb screws – nothing to get lost. How many times has a screw rolled off the edge of your desk, never to be seen again?
Flex-Bay System: Almost every case on the market today has a fixed structure at the front of the case - maybe four or five 5.25" bays on top, a 3.5" bay below that and HDD cages below that. What if that layout doesn't work for you? We've all seen people who have had to mod their cases (sometimes irreversibly) to fit things like radiators. With our Flex-Bay System, you can design that superstructure to be anything you need, and put things wherever you want and change it as often as you like, within minutes. In that respect, you become the case designer. We have a wide array of Flex-Bay adapters and mounts, so you have complete freedom to design it just the way you need it. click here for pictures and more information on The Flex-Bay System
Accessory Mounting System: If you ever wished that you could put a fan in a particular spot or needed a surface to mount something to, our Accessory Mounting System will make your life much easier. By using the holes around the perimeter of the case, or by using vertical or horizontal accessory mounts, you can place fans, reservoirs, pumps, and more, exactly where you want them (maybe just a flat plate to cover up messy cables). We have a wide variety of plates and fan mounts for almost every need. click here for more pictures and information on The Accessory Mounting System
Integrated Radiator/Fan Mounting: Designed for extreme water cooling applications with multiple radiators in multiple locations. Feel free to mount 120.1-4 radiators almost anywhere; top and bottom of both the PSU side and the motherboard side, in the Flex-Bays and under extended top covers. Please note: It is not always possible to use all mounting locations at once depending on how the case is configured with hardware. Please view the radiator clearance specifications below.
Note: Sizes shown are for the case only. Rubber feet add .75" (19mm) to height, optional casters add 2.63" (67mm).
Features and standard equipment:
Please note the the 120mm holes on the PSU side are for HDD mounts and are not spaced for a radiator. USB 3.0 option requires 3.0 headers on te motherboard.

I've been looking for a case that could fit additional water cooling equipment without having to have some 4' monstrosity on my desk. In addition to the volume and amount of configuration these cases offer CaseLabs took alot of time in plotting some very simple but neat functions such as the slide off doors, the slide out tech station for your MOBO, and the Flex Bay System opens up even more options.
The only way to make this case any better is if it had Flex-Bays on both sides which would mean a little wider case, but for someone buying a case this size I dont think a few inches really matters. It would be the only case you'd ever have to buy.

This is a truly great case into even the smallest details, and clearly shows thought has been put in. The customization options are endless and astounding, and I will definitively be buying accessories and additional fan mounts to play around with different configurations.
Do note that the 'Fan Hole' back plate has 4x40mm fan mounts, and not 3 as shown above. However, I would personally argue that the new configuration brings a more balanced look to the back of the case. The fan holes also come with a cover bracket in case you don't want to use them.
Definite buy for anyone looking for an extreme water-cooling case. Great build quality, amazing finish, more options than you'll know what to do with. Packaging was also great with the case wrapped neatly in a large, thick plastic bag, and held in place with foam brackets.

I love this case it was over my budget but it was well worth it. If you are looking for a case, this one is the one for you.
