5 out of 5 eggsDecent case for the price.

Pros: A low priced case with plenty of room for goodies. What more would a person need from a low price case intended for a budget build?

Cons: The space is slightly confined for those of us who like to have huge oversized cooling fans on the processor. Hardly a reason to dock an egg though. If the case was so much as half an inch taller, it would clear most oversized coolers for the processor.

Other Thoughts: none

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad for htpc

Pros: Bought elsewhere good old school design well made sturdy case . great for what i wanted htpc took parts from large tower asus atx /500 ocz watt psu /low key lights for power & hdd / good amount of room . 4 small rubber feet on bottom .

Cons: no front usb or audio must suppy them your self/ poor 3.5 '' cage design poor cooling had to mod rear fan openings & front fan no holes for screws in front . wasted space in areas that could be better used .

Other Thoughts: used speed fan to slow down fans they were running past 3000 rpm like a large truck engine laughed at engrish response from hec about made for old school projects . most people use streaming boxes now anyway . but one of the better cases that can be used for a htpc on the cheap !

4 out of 5 eggsAirflow problems

Pros: I built a PC for a family member with this case as they specifically asked for "Desktop case" Most components installed quickly, fits older desk configurations.

Cons: Air flow is not good for high horse-power video cards and processors. Replace stock fan on CPU and get extra fans. You might want to consider water cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Solid construction
Easy to assemble

Cons: Putting the mother board in was a bit interesting (I used a full sized atx board). It did fit just getting the stand offs and board in under the horizontal support beam with the cpu and cooler was a bit hairy. Other then that exelent case easy to mannage wireing if you route things smart.

1 out of 5 eggsCheck your part to fit inside

Pros: Sturdy, works ok if your parts fit.

Cons: * 3.5" HDD will not fit if your board is 9.6" deep (which many mATX boards are. ). For a case advertised to fit full size ATX case, I did not expect this to happen.


* Adding/remove drives require a lot of screwing and moving things around. Eg: mounting an optical drive, require removing the 3.5" drive cage to put screws on the other side of the optical drive.

* the bottom 5.25" is not usable for it will hit the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: *The case itself is quite big compare to HTPC cases, but poor design cause the limitation listed above. The HDD cage could have been mounted perpendicular to it's current position.

* for a case this size, can easily find space to put 92mm or 120mm fan mount points. This would help with airflow and low noise builds.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid design with a few full ATX issues.

Pros: Solid as a rock. Kids were climbing on this thing after I built it, I shooed them off but found no damage. Good reinforcement for the top.

Cons: Full ATX motherboards may run into issues with the hard drive cages. PCI-e Cards may nearly bump into the hard drive cage and the hard drives may either get in the way of memory, or nearly bump up against it. I tried two motherboards in this, and the smaller "Full ATX" (doesn't use the full motherboard mounts) fit without an issue.

Just be aware.

Other Thoughts: I'd probably drop an additional $8 and get a 50mm fan for the back and likely an 80mm for the front as well. I have been having trouble with overheating video cards since this case is in an enclosed space. Large video cards will "partition" the case and airflow will be a problem ... speaking from experience.

1 out of 5 eggsThe case is what it is.

Pros: This case is what I expected.

Cons: I made it one egg for others to reed.

Other Thoughts: I have mounted an ASUS M5 A88-V EVO mother board it mounted ok. I had to modify the case for others. I expected that. The mother board does not have a FDD port that's ok but the HDD blocked the power socket on the board. Could not plug the power supply in. So here is what I did. I removed the FDD-HDD mount. Made a stencle of the bottom of the HDD of the four mouting holes. lade the stencle on the boddom of case with the back tords the power on switch and drilled four holes. Using the four spare MB stand off's I was able to mount the HDD to the boddom of the case. The CPU tunnel did not line up with the CPU fan. So I removed the plastic tunnel and drill four holes and mounted an 80mm case fan. For a top fan. If you are going to go with this case expect to modify it.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Available

Pros: Three 5.25 external drive bays. Sturdy construction. Desktop.

Cons: The bottom 5.25 bay cant be used with drives as they hit the board.

Cant use all the internal 3.5 bays as they hit parts of the board. I had to purchase a drive cage for my SSD so I could remove the face plate.

MB didnt align with some of the stands. Bending them a hair fixed the issue.

Other Thoughts: I know the company says its made w/ old specs for schools but the description doesnt mention this.

Best available though.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Great no frills HTPC case. Its bigger than I expected. Full ATX MB and plenty of room to run cables. MB stand offs are bigger and hold MB farther away from case...better cooling and excess header wires fit nicely under it. Takes regular PS. No sharp edges, plenty of passive ventilation. Sturdy metal, no flex construction, plastic bezel but good quality. Even the power button makes a health "kuh-kuhn" when pressed...like they did back in the late 80's. Addin cards line up with slots, screw down and fit correctly...slot covers are not permanent "knock outs", but instead can be removed and replaced without screws.

Cons: Wouldn't mind seeing a 120mm fan location

Other Thoughts: You know those retina searing blue LEDs?...well this case doesn't have those...just green and amber. I suppose most of those are now going in LED TVs...probably 2 pair in each 55".
