5 out of 5 eggsCr33ping

Pros: has spectacular air flow and cooling with stock fans, with a lot of room for expansion (ported for water cooling and has extra fan locations, not that you'll probably need them). Great hard drive quick mountain system, attractive and durable design.

Cons: Its heavy. It looks like a tank, and weighs as much. Not a good case if you frequently go to LAN parties. I live far from home and its a pain for me to take this with me when I go visit.

Other Thoughts: The top mounted USB port is great for wireless receivers if you keep the case under your desk.

5 out of 5 eggsWould rate 10 eggs if I could

Pros: This case is the best of ALL worlds. Great outer looks, plenty of room, places to tuck cables, and a panel to see the components.

Cons: Not a single one

Other Thoughts: Plenty of room for video cards.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Estheticly pleasing design, opens up well, great cooling system.

Cons: a little heavy but that's to be expected, also missing one of the skrews for ATX but it has enough to put the motherboard in anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Decent looking case, easy to set up. Good number of drive bays, lots of areas to hide wires, especially next to the drive bays. Price (for me).

Cons: Front and top fans are uncontrolled, simply run wide open all the time powered by molex connector to power supply only. They are quiet though. Will not cleanly accomodate a Corsair hydro series 100 water cooling unit. I mounted it to the top of the case where the top fan was, but only half of the water cooling unit is properly ventilated, that is to say half the radiator is unvented, blocked by the top of the case. I could cut/drill holes in the top of the case, but it wouldn't look pretty. Had I known or done due dilligence I wouldn't have bought the case since I had planned on using this cpu cooler. A cooler master 212 will work fine, and the 100 even mismounted allowed overclocking of an Ivy 3770 k from 3.5 to 4.7 so I'm happy. Although there are plenty of places to stuff wires, there is no "routing" so the cables aren't as clean as say a coolermaster cm storm trooper is. Big Con for me was the cut out to allow removal of the cpu cooler without removing the motherboard. It isn't big enough, and that cutout is completely useless. Why go to the trouble if you aren't going to make it big enough to get to all the screws behind the cpu cooler mount? Useless and irritating as I had the mobo mounted with the idea to mount the cooler after. That was a no-go. LED's are too bright. During the day not so bad, but at night if it is in sleep mode, the blue led flashes so brightly I think there is a police car in the room. This case also lacks usb 3.0 front panel connectors, which I knew going in. The drive bay quick mounts were cheap feeling, i.e. I'm supprised I didn't break them.

Other Thoughts: I really do think this is a decent case even though I had a lot of cons, however is it a $95 case? No. But I bought it on a sale for 59.99 + a $20 rebate = 39.99. It is definitely worth the 60, and at 40 it is a steal.

5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed.

Pros: * Plenty of high quality silent fans, I am very obsessed about keeping my computer running quiet since I work for few hours every night. The fans provide a good amount of airflow.
* cheap, I got it while it was on sale for ~$40.
* looks nice.
* sturdy.
* it is well worth the original price ~$90...let alone getting it for much less.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Just one minor thing: They say it has cable management stuff (I am using this word bcz I do not know what they are talking about). All there is in it to manage the cables is a space next to the drive bays to tuck the cables in. But almost in every build I have done before there are always unused drive bays to tuck the cables in even in older cases.

Not worth to knock an egg for though. I am still very happy.

5 out of 5 eggslove the case so much i'm keeping it

Pros: the design. the fact that you don't need alot of tools to do any installation. after owning it for about 4 or so years i just realized only a few months ago when i was taking the mobo out that it has a place for wires *facepalm*. great case lots of room for fans. lots of room for whatever you want to add on.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: it's a little on the snug side if you get a really big vid card but that's to be expected.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: - I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I love the aggressive look and design of this case. To me, it looks unique without looking tacky. I also like the small window and the fact that the inside is painted black.

It feels very sturdy. The majority of the case is steel that I feel confident will protect my components.

- Very good cooling. I have an additional filtered 120mm fan on the side panel, but the other included fans do a lot of work. The dust filters on the front and bottom are great for keeping the inside clean.

- Good amount of space for a mid tower case. It will fit all but the largest cpu coolers and graphics cards.

Cons: - It's a little pricey for what you get, there are other cases that will provide the same performance at a lower price. Still, I think the unique design of the case along with the the included 3 fans make it worth the money.

- There is only a very rudimentary cable management system. There are no holes to route your cables, but there is a space behind the 3.5" bays to shove cables into. It does make the inside clutter-free but makes switching components difficult because you have to untangle that rat's nest every time.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for several months and it keeps all my components safe, clean and cool while providing a very attractive piece.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt in Standoffs!

Pros: An awesome case! It's got plenty of room for my cpu cooler and gpu. There are plenty of case fans with room to add a couple more, right in front of the hard drives and in front of the gpu. It has several built in standoffs that make installation a little easier, and the tool less drive bays are wicked easy to use and plenty sturdy too. As for cable management if you remove both sides of the case there is room for extra cables and such by the hard drive bays, some zip/twist ties and a little bit of thought and the cables stow away quite neatly. The usb, audio, and eSATA ports on the front and top of the case are well placed and allow easy access for peripherals.

Cons: It can be a little dark inside because of the all black paint job, but that's it

Other Thoughts: The built in standoffs confused me for a bit as I was wondering why there were only a couple of the brass screw in standoffs included in the case, but after placing my mobo in the case saw that they lined up and were the same height as the standoffs that twisted into the predrilled holes for the back edge of the mobo... They should include in the manual that the case has built in standoffs
