5 out of 5 eggsIf it weren't for the "Blue Fans" I would think it was off.

Pros: Modular - quiet - plenty of room for what you need [or want] except long video cards Not your everyday look. I hate conventional.

Cons: the only issue I have is one of the 60 mm fans did not work out of the "box". I have contacted Thermaltake through their website and will see what they have to say. [I really do not want to send anything back

Other Thoughts: Inside the "box"
Asus F2 A85-M Pro
AMD A10 5700 with Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet

2 out of 5 eggsdont waste money

Pros: small lanbox thats about only thing its got going for it

Cons: -no airflow
-your parts will overheat faster in this case
-no cable management if u use both drive slots
-fans stink (seek after market fans for the x2 60mm & 90mm)
-cant replace top 230mm fan with aftermarket

Other Thoughts: even with aftermarket CPU fan cpu temps never changed in this case had to revert back using my core 1000 case from FD from there i saw my temp drop big time. Only reason i had bought this case was cuz people said it was a good case with good airflow but after owning it for 4 months the airflow was bad and started overheating my parts.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Large, cool, quite, easy to assemble/disassemble. Plenty of fans.

Cons: The front e-SATA port was bad. Haven't heard back from manufacturer in 3 days. It is rather big. Can't turn those blasted blue LEDs off without clipping wires. I'm not so excited about the see-through windows (I'm not 12).

Other Thoughts: I really like this box, I will be annoyed if I can't replace the eSATA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. We can replace defect eSATA module through warranty service. Please contact our customer service team for RMA instructions.

5 out of 5 eggsI Love This Case, Despite Its Flaws

Pros: I love thing. It's small, it's sitting on a shelf literally right next to my monitor. I don't have a giant semi-ugly plastic/aluminium/steel amalgamation taking up floor space next to me. It's also blissfully COMPLETELY SILENT! I run this thing all night and if it weren't for the lights, I wouldn't know it was on.

If I visit a friend, or move, or have to run for my life(you never know when Godzilla's gonna come around), this case/monitor/keyboard/mouse combination can go in a single car seat without any problems.

Cons: Every bad thing you've heard or read about this case is completely true. I don't care, it didn't stop me, but I'm not gonna deny it.

Airflow is lower than I'd like. The included fans(while silent) push about as much air as I would walking perpendicularly to the case from across the room.

There is absolutely ZERO room in this case once everything is assembled. The biggest problem overall is the psu size, which Thermaltake doesn't adequately offer an answer for. Your only real options are a 140mm fully modular psu or Silverstones SFX series, if you want to have any real space or airflow in the system.

Other Thoughts: I've been feeling it for a long time, and there are a few articles out there discussing the death of the 20+ year old atx form factor, and happily so. Your average user has little to no reason to need a super tower anymore, much less an atx mid tower case. With the onset of things like the NUC from intel, Micro-ATX(and even mini-ITX) is where manufacturers should be beginning to focus. I'm not saying ATX should go away, but there should be a top of the line version of both, or even all three.

I'd been planning to make a move to this type of case for years(I fell in love with the Fragbox in 2003), and had already swapped my system into a micro-atx apu setup with an ssd and laptop drive. I figured that specifically using the smaller drives in this system would make a difference, and it did in terms of airflow, but not room. All the cables go in the same area, and they can't really be tucked below properly, so short cables are really your only way of improving room any further.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive case

Pros: Modular design makes building a lot easier to put everything together. Fans very quiet.

Cons: USB 3.0 uses a cable not the motherboard header. Does tend to run a little hot

3 out of 5 eggsairflow sucks

Pros: -small
-no fan noise
-100% modular

Cons: -cant replace top 230mm fan with aftermarket fans or use it as intake
-all fans in this case barely move any air to cool your system
-to much money to spend on a case with poor airflow
-no room for cable management
-wire restrict airflow

Other Thoughts: thought it was a good case until i started to notice my pc parts heating up cuz the airflow sucks thinking of replacing the 2 60mm and 1 90 in the front with better RPM fans that move air better.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Case

Pros: - Looks Cool
- Customizable (water cooling)
- Modular (Made build really easy)
- Easy to carry.

Cons: - Runs hot

- Very little space if you don't get a modular power supply.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. Make sure that you get a modular power supply if you can! Even if you are a master with cords it will still be a nightmare to work with and will still lack great airflow. If you really like this case and are wondering whether to get it or not; do it!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!!

Pros: Absolutely awesome would recommend it to anyone!!

Cons: not a lot in water cooling options, would like it to see some of that in the future.

Other Thoughts: If you're planing on modding you case to get a Thermaltake WATER2.0 to fit pay attention to where your SATA ports are for the mobo you want to put in to it, as i put a ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M into mine after the mod, and i'm limited to only using 3 out of 8 SATA ports. this is because the 2nd fan on the radator of the cooling system is just about flush with the SATA 0, & 2-6 ports. PLEASE, learn from my mistake, just make sure your SATA ports are pointing UP not sideways and you'll be good to go.

4 out of 5 eggsNeat case.

Pros: Nice windows on each side to show off your work. Lights are a plus.

The case is comprised of a few modules that come out and let you mount components and then reassemble. Uses standard ATX PSU.

Cons: The USB 3.0 port on the front uses a pass-through instead of a MoBo header. I plan to get an adapter and replace it.

The PSU blocks a good portion of the top fan.

At over a year and a half old, this case is on the expensive side.

5 out of 5 eggsAzzitude doesn't know what he's saying

Pros: As stated by everyone else except Azzitude

Cons: Just becuase this case is micro-ATX does not mean it's not for gaming? You don't need a big case for it to be considered a gaming case. Thermaltake did a great job of making this case look like a gaming case by putting agressive features on it such as the indents and LEDs. Good luck bringing a case like the MK-1 to a LAN party. This is why smaller cases were invented. To make things protable. Who says gaming PCs have to stay stationary? Your logic makes no sense.
