I have to tip my hat to EVGA also on this DG87 Case.
I am very pleased with it.
Lots of room so very easy to work in, lots of fans with both software fan controller as well as the 87 has hardware fan controller built into front panel.
Lots of access holes for cable routing. And very easy to get into and work with, no screws to mess with to take any of the panels off. Filters all around and should be easily replaced. 
 
The front of the case is what many cases would be the side, this one sits laterally with the windowed front facing out. No visible cables, the I/O cables are hidden in case and route out back left corner so well hidden. Nothing is visible, even back of power supply - everything concealed in the case. And the airflow appears to be doing a great job keeping the system cool.
In addition, it has some great ports on front of case for easy access. Even an HDMI port on the front  for making plugging in a VR headset very easy. And both USB2 and 3 ports on front as well.
 
Probably the only downside I think, is the clear window on front of the case is acrylic rather than glass. I am well familiar with the care and cleaning of acrylic from when I was employed so no biggie, but one would have to take care to keep it nice and scratch free. I saw where some guys over on their forum replaced it with glass - I may do that at some point.
Well also the manual does not state what each of the buttons on the case does, would have been nice if it did.
 
So anyway I would certainly recommend this case to those enthusiasts that prefer a full tower like myself, it is pretty sweet.

    Beautiful case. 
    No single complain and nice build.
    EVGA success to made case big enough for a tone of hardware and in same time with single GPU and normal build Case doesn't look empty at all.
