First impression I got from the case was “Hey, this looks just like from Mass Effect”. The case has a bit Star Wars, Mass Effect and very “geeky” look to it. The front panel is made from white glossy plastic, and in general the whole case is painted the same way. There are some black areas in the case, from which most are made from mesh.

The front panel connectors are located on the top of the case. The usual microphone and headphones connectors are accompanied with two USB2.0 connectors, two USB3.0 connectors and fanspeed switch. Personally, I like the connectors being on top of the case as it makes the access to them easier when the case is standing on the floor. However, there’s a downside if the computer is located on your table.

The power button and reset button, along with HDD and power leds are located also on top of the case on the other side than the front panel connectors.

Most of the upper section of the case is covered in black mesh. This mesh makes it easier for top fans to exhaust the hot air out of the case. Also, as the roof is heavily shaped, the mesh looks quite cool and gives the case a bit geekish look especially if you put led fans behind it.
