2 out of 5 eggsNice Look..Missing some things

Pros: Nice looks! Purchased for an AMD build and the red and black combo looks great with my scheme. It has nice features for this price. Nice for a first time build on a budget.

Cons: User manual is very vague and not the most helpful. Back panel could have just a bit more depth for cable management. USB 3.0 must be plugged in outside the case, I purchased a MB adapter to avoid this. The front USB 2.0 does not work at all as it was missing a connector to the mother board which I figured out when my build was nearly complete. Wasn't going to turn back at that point. This is a common issue come to find out when researching online after. The case did not come with the lower PSU filter as it was supposed to. Looked into RMA on Thermaltake website to get the part but after filling the info out the form it wouldn't send. I guess I can live without it. Just disappointing about the case missing those items and function of the 2.0 USB port. Im not going to take it all apart after hours of work to get a new case. Just be aware that these issues could happen to you if you purchase. Look it over really good to make sure everything is intact. A lesson I have learned. This is a nice case especially if it is complete. Wish I had one to begin with.

Other Thoughts: All in all my build is up and running and I like the look of the case. I have over come the missing usb 2.0 with a media card reader with one build into it. Currently a sticker covers the non functioning one. USB 3.0 works fine. The air filter thing isn't the end of the world just wish I had it and it was an easier process with Thermaltake to get it sent to me. Looks like I will have to go without it.

2 out of 5 eggsPretty Meh

Pros: Looks nice
Decent Air Flow
Fair cable management(but the back panel makes it annoying)

Cons: This case is pretty cramped. Using an ATX board and there's no way I can mount a 120mm fan on either spot on top(hits ram and cpu cooler). Forced to use small fans, which I just ordered. Also the front mount fan spot has to be drilled to actually accept a fan, which was also annoying to install because the frame is in the way of the guides.

A huge negative is the lack of a usb 3.0 header up front, its just a USB extender that they actually suggest going through the middle and out the back(really dumb seeing that there's a window)

Pretty flimsy, my case was warped and I had to do some bending to get it right, rear panel sucks for cable management.

Other Thoughts: If I got to do it over I would choose another case. The cool looks of this case don't really make up for it's faults. And don't even think of watercooling if thats something you want, this case is super cramped as it is.

2 out of 5 eggsCheaply made

Pros: Looks nice on the website.

Cons: Cheaply made product. The case is so thin and flimsy I thought it was a $19.99 China special. The front USB ports are so flimsy I am afraid they are going to break off when inserting a usb device. As noted by others the front USB 3.0 cable has to be routed out the back and plugged into the rear USB 3.0 port or you can do like I did and buy an adapter. The front cover looks cheap and does not match up flush with the case. They only provide one plastic stand-off for the motherboard and no nut for the center stud.

Other Thoughts: Over all the case is cheap and should not cost more than $19.99 or $9.99 on sale. I have used cheap $19.99 cases before that were built better than this one. I have used ThermalTake cases in previous builds and I am totally shocked by the poor quality of this one for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsFair Case

Pros: Nice style. Roomy with holes for cable routing. Metal...fair.

Cons: Biggest Con is that the USB front panel connecter is a Pass Thru. You're given a USB cable to route thru the box, out the back and then plug it into the USB port on the outside of the case. CHEAP. Dropped it 2 eggs because of that.

Other Thoughts: Grandson wanted it, I wouldn't buy it again because of the USB

4 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: The internal and external red color of this case is beautiful ,and the wiring was very easy.

Cons: There is one very big con and if anyone from thermaltake reads this please take this into consideration you cannot put any extra fans at the top of the case which was very disappointing because I had already ordered 2 fans to put in and when it got here I could not put it on.

4 out of 5 eggsFront USB 3.0 makes no sense...read below.

Pros: My son (16 yr old) likes the way the case looks. It's a solid case. Only paid $40 for it after rebate so it's pretty good deal.

Cons: The single most aggravating thing about this case is that the USB 3.0 port in the front has to be routed through the machine, out the back, in order to plug into the motherboard. That's ridiculous. Now I have to buy a $6 adapter to plug it into the 20 pin slot on the motherboard. seriously? Also, the case only comes with one 120mm fan (rear).

Other Thoughts: I think it's a good case, but I find I'm still flabbergasted about the USB cable. That complaint aside, it's still a great case for the price, which ends up at $55 after buying a second fan and USB 3.0 20-pin motherboard adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Easy to install everything, very nice looking, no problems and very spacey.

Cons: Gimmicky front USB 3.0, front audio and Usb ports difficult to find. PSU dust fan obtrusive and PSU has to be very short, mine barely fir.

Other Thoughts: All around, great case

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget case

Pros: It has good filters, a good fan, plenty of room, a few quick connect bays.

Cons: Front panel is flimsy and the usb is ghetto. You have to run a usb cable that's connected to the front panel out of the back into one of the usb slots on the back of the board for it to work. GHETTO.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality Case

Pros: I was pretty skeptical in buying this case at first, but I really loved the red of the case, and it wasn't a completely flat case like a lot of other cases. The case has pretty decent cable management, and has a lot of room on the inside for higher end graphics cards. It also has pretty decent airflow.

Cons: The USB 3.0 isn't a Mobo header, but I used a solution to fix it. There also isn't enough room to mount fans at the top really, nor an internal radiator for water cooling. (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: When I read that it was just a pass through cable for the USB 3.0, I decided that with the case being on sale when I purchased it to go ahead and buy a 20 pin mobo to Female type A adapter as well and it works just fine without having to route the cable out of the back of the case. I could only find one that splits into two female heads, so I've got an extra internal USB 3.0 as well. I also decided to go with water cooling, but the 240 radiator wouldn't fit on the top, so I went with the corsair H80i, which is a 120mm, and it fit perfectly on the back fan mount, and by perfectly, it fit so tightly that if it was 1mm taller, it would not have fit, so just keep in mind that its possible, but its going to be a tight fit.
