1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: This is a good looking, relatively inexpensive case. It does come with 3 fans and a small fan controller to power them.

Cons: The worst metalworking and tolerances I've ever seen. Both side panels wouldn't fit in their grooves and were bent *from the factory* so they could be screw*d in. I spent about an hour trying to bend metal so the whole thing would fit together.

Worse, the screw holes were badly drilled. No matter how many times I threaded screws, they ended up not going on, so I basically had to over-torque and just make new screw threads

Other Thoughts: I know it's a cheaper case, but the cheaper Cooler Masters and even the junk boxes I bought from the local computer store weren't this badly manufactured.

Apparently newegg doesn't like the world scr*wed. Good job on censoring a technical term.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed in this case

Pros: Form factors and aesthetics is good. Comes with 3 fans.

Cons: Doesn't comes with anything you'd expect from a case. No mounting screws, risers, cables, face plate, etc.

Completely ridiculous. Will have to purchase a cheap case tomorrow to strip for screws, etc.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

Pros: The case had all the specific details that I was looking for like the size/form factor and front available USB ports which is 4. Also designed with plenty of places for fans and comes with 3.

Cons: With all that said...I first pulled case out of packaging and I immediately noticed that it was all banged up particularly where the side panels screw on the back, so I had to somewhat bang out dents with a mallet. I removed the front panel to install another 120mm fan and the fan that came installed in the case broke. It snapped on all 4 arms that mount the actual fan to its housing...seems very cheap. I super glued it back and we'll see if it holds.

Other Thoughts: The damage on the case may not be Fractal's doing...could have happened during any part of the shipping process, I don't know...but it was damaged for sure. But I the overall feel of the chassis is very cheap and I doubt that I will go with another one.
