... the power switch is located behind the door, so you need to open the door every time you need to turn on or off your computer. After a while this process gets really annoying.
Seems like you have some kind of problem...?

Switching the computer on is something I do typically once per day, so opening a little door to reach the button isn't much work. If I did think it was lots of work I'd simply activate "wake on keyboard" to let me power up the computer by tapping the "Any"-key...

Switching the computer off is normally done by the OS, so no need to access any physical button there.

Cheers

Default Without taking out motherboard

In the review you mention the hole in the motherboard is to install after-market coolers with brackets, without having to remove the motherboard.
Have you tried it yourselves? How do you go about?

Without completely knowing, I'd strongly recommend taking motherboard out for the procedure: Better and safer seating and thus much faster... in the long run.

Default Price

Oh, one more thing!
The case is about 300 USD. That would be about 2 100 SEK, Swedish money. But you can get it here for 850 SEK (believe it to be the same version). http://datorfixarna.com/catalog/prod...752dd46f2a8cc6 Please also remember we have a VAT of 25%.

Maybe the Swedish representative above got the model or price wrong, but I find no NZXT case at the levels of 2 100 SEK.

No, it isn't. Last bullet on page 5:
Quote:
Average price in the US*: USD 80.00 (USD 70.00 after a USD 10 mail-in rebate)
Which ends up at the expected ~800 SEK retail price.

(Guess you mistook the $299.99 in the ad below the header to be for this case, but it's for a completely different product.)

Cheers

Hello Fredrik,

I agree with you, however we've seen some users complaining that their cases don't have such hole so we decided to start commenting on this feature as well.

Thanks for your message.

Cheers,
Gabriel.
