I ask this as things like the fitted fans in mine all had wire grills on them inside and out and the blanking plates were all screw in (with smooth edges I might add). It has a removable motherboard tray and although there is room for 6 hard drives in the bays, only 4 are mounted as to give room for proper airflow from the intakes on the front.
Ok so I paid in the region of £140 for it over 3 years ago and it didn't include things like cooling ducts or windows (I wish I could find a replacement blank panel for mine) but I still get the feeling that it is put together a lot better than the newer cases from them.
Although all things said, it does look kinda nice and those sideways mounted hard drives are going to be a hell of a lot easier to get at than mine.
