2 out of 5 eggsShould have known better

Pros: lot of room

Cons: when you buy refurbished especially a computer case, you figure they have fixed it..well no eggs for me, came broken with front bezel pin broke, it is now resting in a pool of expoxy..been building computers for over 15 years and have watched case quality nose dive to pitiful. should have stayed with tried and true antec 900. this case is cheap plastic .
Will be buying an antec

Other Thoughts: i have always gone by the axiom, with electronics, you get what you pay for it is still true stay away from a refurbished case..shame on me thankfully it was only 60 bucks

Pros: looks cool that's about it

Cons: I had these case 2 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REALLY!!!!!!!!only enough room for 1 extra fan,front panel & temp lights went out after a day.customer service is terrible newegg & NZXT i picked up from will call i didn't see a problem exchanging from there if the have cases in stock people work from home can't afford the down time waiting on an R M A exchange ..I should have taken the hr ride to Micro center it would have been less trouble

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: sleek look,
3 temp sensors and separate temp display so you dont have to use software.
2 front usb 3.0
decent amount of areas to hold cables.
build material is not at all flimsy,
for a $66 dollar case would most definitely buy again
screwless pci clips so you dont have to screw in the pci cards.

Cons: first and formost
nothing larger than 10" video card with nothing in adjacent 5.25 bay however if you drop to a lower pci-e slot on ur mother board u could fit a 11" but BARELY
not really a con but i dont see why theres 3.5" bays, i think case would have been better if the 3.5 was removed along with 1 5.25 bay and add one more 120mm fan spot in the front.
on that note, only 4 fans not to mention the front fan is "blocked" by the cover when closed although apon closer look a normal fan wont supper any with cover in closed spot

Other Thoughts: bought for a blue black theme compter
fx-8350 pro
asus gtx 960
16g ram
1 128g ssd
1 1tb hdd
xspc custom water cooling processor cooler.
650w psu

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Quality Budget Case

Pros: - Slick, solid design. The chassis is made of steel, so it feels very sturdy.
- Comes with 3 fans in total. Two with blue LED's and a rear exhaust that doesn't have LED's. There's also room for one additional 120mm fan on the top if you'd like to add one.
- Cable management was relatively painless. Much less room, though, and it would have been a bit of a pain.
- Temperature sensors and the display on the front are a nice feature.
- The clear portion on the side is fantastic. It has kind of gray tint to it, but just enough so you can still see the goodies and lights on the inside.
- Plenty of expansion bays.
- The front door seems to be pretty sturdy. It's magnetic, which is nice.
-

Cons: - Front-facing USB ports are 2.0, not 3.0. Kind of a bummer, but not a deal-breaker for me. I have a few 3.0 ports on the back.
- Be careful which video card you try to put in this case. I'm using the Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB and there's not much room to spare between the end of the card and drive bays.
- The SSD mounting spot was a bit awkward for me. I was able to get my SSD mounted securely with two screws, but it would have been nice to have pre-cut holes for a 2.5." Not worth dinging an egg for, but worth calling out.

Other Thoughts: I got this case in a combo deal and I love it. In my opinion, it's a steal for the price. It looks nice, but it's not overdone. Also, there's plenty of room for upgrades.

1 out of 5 eggsNZXT Guardian 921 RB 921RB-001-BL Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great looking case
bigger than i thought
Nice and roomy for those 1ft cards

Cons: Case came broke, The clear side of case there is a giant crack from the fan to the front of the case.

Very sad day

Other Thoughts: I ordered $1200 of computer equipment from new egg the case just got here first.
I pray to the 9 the rest will be okay....

3 out of 5 eggsOne Awesome Case - One Horrible Flaw.

Pros: This case looks great.
It has lots of nice features; easy to mount HDD, temps readout, nice solid door, nice looks and the list goes on!

Everything worked and still works perfectly fine after a year.

I've had this case in my main build for a while. Watercooling is somewhat easy (too and rear-mounts. It goes hand-in-hand with the NZXT hue and Source.

The case is relatively silent with an h100i inside of it. Stock fans are surprisingly really good!

I thought the door would be a fingerprint magnet due to it's high gloss finish, but it's surprisingly not !

Cons: -Bad cable management (why the 2eggs off)
-No USB 3.0

It's especially important to have a clean looking case when you have such a eye catching windowed side panel..
The cable management will be horrible for you of you don't have a modular poker supply.
Even with a fully modular power supply I had a hard time working things out.. but I always found a way to make it work.



One of the expansion slots retainers broke the first time I removed it! Fortunately I have GPUs installed so it's all good.z

The door became a but noisy but I'm sure I could just oil it down and it'll be fine !

Other Thoughts: It's overall great. You get what you pay for in the construction though. It feels sturdy
It would've been nice to see USB 3.0!

Great mounting solutions and if it wasn't for the cable management, this would be one of the nicest case out there.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case for the price

Pros: Good Price
Good Space you have enough to workaround
Its a Mid-Size.
Many spaces for fans

Cons: The airflow isnt very good. I am using a AMD A8-6600k and a Cooler Master Evo for the cpu but if you buy this case be ready to buy new fans. Maybe it was just my luck but all the fans that came with the case didnt work i had to replace them all.

Other Thoughts: Overall i would recommend anyone to buy this game for a mid-gaming case and good for the price. Just remember change the fans.
