5 out of 5 eggsBought in 07' Still running strong

Pros: Shear space inside! I built a dual opteron mobo and had 2x zalman cpu coolers with room to spare for wire managment and perfect airflow. Handles the long GPU cards with ease.

Cons: Front bezel clips are WEAK! If you even breath hard trying to change the front fan you will break the tabs and its all over for the front panel... The rubberized coating for the power switch on mine was excessive so when you pressed the switch the power button stayed pushed in,even with the spring tension it wouldnt pop back out, I had to use an xacto knife and trim off some coating to get the button to work properly.

Other Thoughts: I would love another one of these towers now that i know it's problomatic areas it has still been the best tower i have owned and has handled every rebuild i have thrown into it over the last 7 years! If they make a 2014 model of this classic newegg please stock it and i will pick it up!

4 out of 5 eggsOld faithful

Pros: Case is going on five years old and everything is still running strong. Haven't had a single problem. It's a bit of a dinosaur. I wonder what happened to xclio. The only thing that's started to stop working is half the logo that lights up on the front panel.

Cons: Well it came in with the edges of the front plastic where the temp and logo are displayed quite damaged. Mobo/graphics card had to be force fit a bit but I'm unsure if this is normal as this was my first and only computer build to date.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going stron....

Pros: Bought this thing back in early 2009 for my new i7 rig with ASUS p6T Deluxe. This sucker has ample room even when adding in GPU's, cpu coolers, etc. My LEDS and two fans are still working, fans dont make any noise. One of the feet broke off but that was my fault. Overall, been a great case.

Cons: Dust magnet, very large, some of the parts do feel cheap.

Other Thoughts: It feels very out dated and ugly looking but this is now and that was then. The cable management is non-existant but with some zip-ties was able to get it working.

2 out of 5 eggsEasy to build with, but bad fans/USB ports

Pros: Very roomy, large case that was very easy to build in. Looks pretty nice depending on your tastes. Case worked great for about a year.

Cons: I've built two PCs with this case, and in BOTH of them the fans failed within a year of use. At first they start making a light clicking sound, then the clicking gets louder and more frequent until they fail altogether. For what it costs to replace the fans you could buy an entire case, so once they're gone that's pretty much it.

Furthermore, in one of the PCs I've built with this case, the front/side USB ports just stopped working. They were barely even used, but one day they just stopped functioning.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent case

Pros: Ample room. Great flow through. Super easy to work inside. First time I didn't cut myself on sheet metal in builds.

Cons: fans bend easily

Other Thoughts: Worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsNice case, has issues.

Pros: • Large case, lots of space, great airflow
• Aesthetically pleasing

Cons: • Front panel is made with cheap plasic, it broke after a couple years.
• 250mm side fans last 2 years max. The bearings wear out and they start to make a lot of noise and eventually they just stop working altogether.
• Those fans cost around $30 a pop and they're harder to find these days.
• The case being so large is a pro, but also a con as it's rather cumbersome.

Other Thoughts: It was a great case at the time (I purchased it in 2007) but it's rather dated now and it's discontinued on newegg. I figured I would review it anyways!

4 out of 5 eggsVery Airy Tower Can

Pros: Great tower for space and airing. Easily fits everything I need and the huge side fans admit a mountain of air into the tower. LEDS on the fans look awesome as well.

Cons: Some materials are very cheaply made. HDD racks, optical drive covers, and front cover all feel cheaply made. Let me be clear: they do not feel like they will break but they are made of plastic and aren't as nice as a metal front/covers would be.

Also, They fans can be VERY loud if the power cable hangs in the fan which it can do sometimes if its not secured properly.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: This is quite a large case and has more than enough room for anything you might want to put in it. The two 250mm fans on the side provide ample cooling for all your components. The variable speed knobs for the fans are a nice touch but I don't find myself using them that much. I keep them turned all the way up.

Cons: There are a few issues that I have experienced with the case over the time that I have owned it. The screws holding the PCI/PCIe covers on are actually threaded backwards causing some confusion when installing my graphics card. Over time, the two 250mm fans have deteriorated and often squeak and hit up against the fan housing. The plastic removable hard drive mounts are very fragile as well. I have broken a few of the squeeze tabs off simply removing my hard drives with appropriate force.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a decent case. If you want a relatively cheap case with great cooling then this is the case for you. If you are looking for a rock solid case that will last you a long time, I suggest looking elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: Owned since '09

Well, the case is huge, no need for additional cooling. x2 HD's in redundant array inexpensive drive 0, x1 gpu nvid 200 series, i7.

Cons: The massive fans are still going strong, sleeve bearings are still alive. Overall build quality leaves something to be desired, cheap plastics are present.

Other Thoughts: Owned since '09

It has survived several moves but did sustain some damage while on a truck, it's aesthetic in nature.

5 out of 5 eggsalmost 5 years and still going strong

Pros: I purchased this case because of the air flow potential and man does it meet that goal. I had never heard of Xclio when I purchased this. Everything stays cool. Love this case. Fans and LED's still going strong. At one point the fans began making a ticking noise, I trimmed the tip of the blades and that is no longer a problem. Tons of room in this thing. It has personality

Cons: My only beef with this case is not only does it have great cooling but it acts as a dust filter for your house and there is absolutely no cable management. If you purchase this you are going to be cleaning this out a lot...we live out in the country.

Other Thoughts: I just love this case, I purchased the silver one; now that I'm getting a bit more experienced I'm going to mod this case. Can't wait....first mod......filters...second...window.....third all fans are going red and I think I'm going to give vinyl sheeting a shot instead of painting. Nor sure yet...three fans across the top?.....maybe :)
