4 out of 5 eggsNice case for the price

Pros: Bought this for my girlfriend since she loves orange. Clear side panel and easy access is nice, especially if you're looking to install LED fans. No noise complaints either. Removable side panels allow for easy cable storage.

Cons: Needs additional fans but easy to install a few 120mms to add air flow.

Other Thoughts: This isn't a complaint but more an observation. If you install you're own 120mm on the front, there is a removable metal bracket for additional HDDs. Unless you have a mass of HDDs, removing this will greatly improve air flow through the case. Have never had much trouble with Cooler Masters.

3 out of 5 eggsNice case for cheap

Pros: This is a nice case with plenty of space on the inside for components and the like. Good airflow once you take the front foam out and install a front fan. Looks nice.

Cons: When the case arrived 4 of the pegs from the front panel were already broken off which sucks, it's made of cheap plastic. There isn't much room on the back side for cable management so I had to run my 24-pin through the inside of the case. Also only two spots for fans, one front and one back.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like this case but because of the cheap plastic of the front panel that broke off and the lack of space on the back for cable management plus only two fan spots, even though they work fine, I will only give it 3 stars.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for a budget build

Pros: -Great roomy case for a single-GPU build. Lots of room for cable management
-Side panels pry on and off easily, front panel pops off in a snap for installing 5.25/3.5" drives. Love the big, clean side window
-Plenty of hooks, loops, and holes for hiding cables.
-Interior ventilation is decent, mobo/CPU idle temps in the low 30's. Room for 140mm fan in the front
-Very modest yet pleasing design. no bells or whistles, and I love the orange accent.
-Plenty of room for aftermarket CPU fans.

Cons: -No mounting hardware for interior drives, side of my HDD got scratched a bit fitting it into the bay.
-Fitting a front fan is tricky. Had to remove the HDD cage entirely to fit a 120mm fan in the front.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this for anyone building a decent gaming or entertainment rig on a budget. It's holding my overclocked FX-6300, Radeon 6870, and 650W PSU with ease and idle temps in the 30's, so I can't complain one bit

2 out of 5 eggsSleek looking, poor fit

Pros: Nice colors. Very sleek looking. Construction is solid without being over built. CM provides more fasteners, zip ties for cables, and stand-offs for the motherboard than you should actually need. That's quite nice. Cables connecting to the header panel are well labeled and of adequate length.

Cons: But where do I put my hard drives? The 5-6 internal 3.5" HDD bays are all a bit too narrow. I pushed a HDD into the widest one and it scraped off some finish. So I put it in an external 3.5" bay where there was less airflow. I'm also disappointed because all bays have a neat 'keyhole' midway through the bay for some kind of drive retention system. But that is the one kind of fastener that is not provided in the case - or even mentioned in the instructions (so I can' possibly order whatever they are). Then, the remaining possibilities to fasten HDDs into the 5 internal bays are limited and awkward. I didn't find a satisfactory way to put a HDD in those places using 4 screws. Furthermore, I thought that the case exhaust fan was weak.

Other Thoughts: I think any 'power users' will be disappointed. This could have been a 5 egg case for budget builds but not having adequate room to install HDDs is a glaring failure. I took three eggs off. One for making fundamental mistakes. One for poor fit. One for the strange assortment of HDD mounting goofs. This case contains a rig I built for my mother, or I would have promptly return it.

5 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: sturdy and attractive with options for 80, 90, 120 and 140mm fans

Cons: has no SSD mounting as some cases do

Other Thoughts: I have used this case in all its versions. Orange and blue trim and some with a power supply with and without side window. For some reason the orange trim case when ordered with a psu comes with a different one than the blue trim case, the blue cases psu being higher quality, I think.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Spacious inside. Fits large newer graphics cards. Good airflow. LED's for power and HDD are inset to dim them down a little (HUGE plus).

Cons: Both LED's are bright blue. Really bright. With the inset it's focused like a flashlight, but still. No other problems so far. Wife loves the design.

4 out of 5 eggsWonderful!

Pros: It has plenty of room for everything I had to install, came with plenty of cable management supplies. I like the build itself, has all the options of cooling I could ever want, excluding a side fan slot. It has a very simple and easy to use front panel with easy reset button, power button and such, has plenty of cable management room, I used this for my very first PC build and am very satisfied with my purchase.

Cons: The only bad thing about this case I'd have to say is the video card slots, they must be broken off which isn't a big problem, but be careful when taking them off to make sure that slot is where your card will be installed.
