I also hit a snag with my CD drive.

Whenever I would try to open the drive with the door closed, it would get to this point and bind.

If you manually opened the latch and let the tray extend, the tray would try to go back in and hang here.  As a rule, I really dislike these types of systems, particularly on cases where many types of drives are used.  It would be much better if the door was solid and you had to open it up every time you wanted to use a drive.  It would even look a lot nicer that way.  Better yet, just eliminate the door entirely.  Same goes with the space for the floppy drive.  A lot of people don't use floppy drives these days, so it looks kind of silly with just an empty hole in the front.

A really nice feature of this case is the 120mm opening on the side.  Basically this opening extends out into a tube that goes to a position right over the CPU.  This tube is 120mm in diameter from the side panel all the way to the top of the CPU's heatsink, so most of the incoming air that is being sucked into the case is going to enter right above the CPU.

At the end of the day, its a little bit of a hassle to set up, but the result is worth it.  While the case has some quirks, its nothing that seriously hampers the usefulness of the case.  With my 3.4GHz Prescott, the onboard monitoring measured the CPU's temperature at 52-57C depending on load.  While this may seem rather warm, that is right within or slightly below the usual range for this particular CPU. 

Thanks go out to YeongYang for sending us the review sample.
