-- Blue Directron Dragon DA-01BLD Full Tower Case
-- Price: ~ $79.00 USD

It's big.  There's enough room to pack an army of hard drives and optical drives in there to satisfy just about anyone .  I still don't really like the vertical standing PSU based in the rear, it cuts down the room you can use.

One thing I did like is the cut panels separating the top area and the bottom area.  There is a large rectangular shaped cut that allows you to pass some of your power connectors to the bottom.  It makes everything a bit neater and easier to manage.

This is the front intake, without a fan.  If you're getting this case, make sure you stock up on a few fans since it doesn't come with any.  Remember the fan exhaust out the back?  The case comes with these purplish fan holders that snap into place.  Instead of screwing your fans in, just push them through the holder and snap them back into the case.

Also, to the left of the front intake is a small vertical bar with squares in them.  You can run your wires through these manage them easier.  This case seems to be all about being neat and managed.

This is one of 3.5" drive cages, it come apart by pulling on the lever shown above.  Also note, at the end of the cage is another fan bracket!  This gives you the option to create your own hard drive cooler if needed.

All the 5.25" drives are held in place by these brackets included in the accessories box.  Reminds me of the Enlight's design.
