While there are a couple of very minor things that I would have liked to have gone a little different in my time with the Genesis 9000, only the PSU installation sticks in my head as a real bummer, making what should take two minutes turn into a 15 minute adventure. I like that the motherboard tray and enough of the back of the case come out to give you the opportunity to install the board, CPU cooler and cards all outside of the case and there aren't clearance issues when you go to return the motherboard tray into the case.
It has also been a long time since I have seen a chassis that offers users the option to flip the motherboard tray so that the chassis can offer the motherboard in the upright position as well as the inverted layout. You can reverse the doors to move the window to the top and even the length of the wiring is taken into consideration. You saw I had to loop the wiring and bundle others, so there is plenty to make it to the other side of the chassis and still make all of the connections to the motherboard.
The cooling provided in the Genesis 9000 creates a really good flow of air inside the chassis. Without looking at the bay fans mounted in the door, or the optional door fans on the other side, the design here is to force air from the floor with the pair of 140mm fans, while the 120mm exhaust just sips some of the heat of the inside of the case. The air forced up from the floor is mainly taken up and exhausted through the pair of 230mm fans at the top. There is definitely some audible levels of noise coming from the 120mm and 140mm fans, but with the push of a button, you can disable the fans along with the blue accent lighting on the outside of the chassis, for what I will call a "sleep mode". Aesthetically, structurally and functionally, this chassis is one of a kind in today's market. For the money, you will be very hard pressed to find anything that competes in features, customizability and that offers this much room.
If you like what you see, I say you should act fast. I don't know how long the Newegg sale and mail in rebate offer are going to last. If you can get in before the lock, you are getting an amazing deal for the Azza Genesis 9000. At $129.99 and an additional $9.99 to ship it, there is no reason a sane buyer shouldn't be looking at this chassis. While there is plenty of competition in this segment, if the exterior looks is up your alley, it just gets better the deeper you go.
As I said, with the release of the Genesis 9000, Azza has really stepped up their game and is offering some really serious competition for the much larger companies out there.
