And you are going to get fed up with it much sooner if you often re-assemble your system because this case has a very strange layout:

It cannot be explained by its BTX orientation alone. The front-panel fan is fastened with screws in any of two seats:

Its position is normal, but its connector is an annoyance:

Few people will connect a fan in a top-end system case directly to the PSU. Most users are likely to use additional speed controllers, which all have standard 3-pin connectors instead of Molexes. So, you have to use adapters and extra lengths of cable that should be tucked away somewhere.

The PSU place, which is also a cage for two HDDs, is designed in an odd way, too:

It takes air from outside through the bottom of the case and there is no dust filter here:

In an ordinary apartment, which is not wet-cleaned each day, the PSU fan will have to be cleaned at least once a year. But to do the cleaning, you have to take it out of the case, which is a problem.
