Opinion on Cooler Master Q500L

I was thinking of getting the Cooler Master Q500L, it seems like a good case that's compact and is on sale where I live. But I've heard that it has bad airflow, I already have 4 fans. Do you think it's a bad case?

It has terrible airflow

Is it really terrible terrible or just not optimal, I have enough fans to fill every mount.

Properly terrible terrible. Small holes with a lot of metal inbetween combined with a psu that takes up 1/3 of the intake = terrible airflow.

I got my son the Q300L which is the smaller version.

 

you would think with the amount of holes in the case it would be good for airflow but it is not.  it is too restrictive, i would avoid it.
