Well done.. i like the mesh in the front.. holes good enaugh to draw some air into the fans infront. some cases block the front intake with to small holes in the mesh. so they spin but dont get any air !

I've got the black one and it's been the best case I've ever owned. My only issue with it is lack of slots for all my hard drives. I had to sort of wedge one beside my Blu-ray burner and I also ended up buying a bigger hard drive to eliminate two others. BUT! Other than that. The airflow is superior to anything I've ever owned. My 240mm rad sits fine with no clearance issue with the mobo or ram and having a separate compartment to "shove" all the excess from my cables and house my psu in. That's a nice touch. It was also really easy to work with.
And now, I'm thinking I might have to swap my current case to my FX8350 build and throw my i7 build into the white case.

Awesome case, i recently moved my sons watercooled and OCed i7 950 and 580GTX into one. Plenty of space and as previously mentioned easy to locate a 240 rad at the front.
