4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Overall it has very good build quality
it has decent airflow for a mid tower
looks great

Cons: Its lacking on the cable management end, there isn't really a whole lot of room and I found myself having to smoosh cables together to get them to fit
and i'm very disappointed with USB 3.0 port in the front only being usable by taking using one of the usb ports on the rear from your motherboard
I don't suggest this case if you're looking to get a water cooler for your CPU because there just isn't any room to logically mount a radiator

Other Thoughts: Over all I do love this case a lot, with my build this case worked perfectly but was a little limiting hardware wise.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Looks great
Decent space
Good drive bays

Cons: No space for watercooling
Actual usb 3.0 front panel connector

Other Thoughts: If you didn't understand what I meant by the usb 3.0 thing, I mean that the front panel usb 3.0 connector has to be wired outside of the case, and plugged into one of the i/o ports on the motherboard. So basically transfers one of the back ones into a front one. If they fixed that, this case would be sooo sick.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 - Odd Connection

Pros: Nice case overall. If using a smaller SSD you need to use housing so it fits in bay.

Cons: Fan locations and layout don't work well with the MSI B85-G41 Motherboard I purchased - two top fans conflict badly with memory slots and CPU location/fan or watercooling. I installed a Cooler Master Seidon 120 and it barely would fit with the 8 pin connector plug location - had to mount by putting screw though fan grill hole not meant for screw - but it does work.

USB 3.0 included on face of case hooks up via an extension USB cord. Per the directions you have to run out of the case and plug back into the motherboard back 3.0 slot. Not a very clean look to have this cord sticking out of your case and plugging back into the very machine it just left.......Again, it works but pretty poor engineering. Since this machine will ultimately sit where you cannot see this what is the real worry - if you plan on having the back of the case visible then note this issue.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I got the white version for $50 which is a pretty good deal considering it's white.
Dust filters on front intake and 5.25" drive bays
PSU Dust filter
Looks so nice with LED fans
Some decent airflow
Thermaltake said that you can only mount a 120mm on the front but you can actually mount a 140mm fan on the front

Cons: The front fan be mounted but you don't want to use the fan screws you would have to use the screws your PSU/GPU is using for it to work.
Seems flimsy

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the price

Pros: Fully painted inside and out. Quick locks for the drives, bottom mounted Powersupply. Cutout in MB tray makes changing cooling solution backup plates very easy to install, no need to pull entire MB.

There are alot of features to this MB for a very cheap price.

Cons: The case has 2 mounts for exhaust fans in the top of the case. I was only able to fit one in the forward most spot. The back one does not have room, it hits the motherboard..

I wish there was a tad more room behind the MB tray, and the back panel to cram extra PS cables.

The Front panel USB 3.0 connection is made by running a long cable through the case, around back and plugs into a USB 3.0 slot outside the case.. What? Couldn't you just have built in the cable that plugs into the MB?

Other Thoughts: I build 4-5 computers a year. I personally own a Thermaltake Full tower and love it. This smaller mid tower is also going to be sitting at my feet. No self respecting nerd would be caught without 2-3 Pc's around his desk..

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: I like the size and the front look. I like the modest window.

Cons: One of the plastic snaps for the front panel fell off on its own. It's not a big deal but now the top corner is a little loose. Also, while putting it together I lost two screws for my power supply, they vanished liked screws do. It's no big deal, I just screw*ed (NewEgg won't let me use the word since it is "inappropriate.") in 2 corners but it would've been nice if it came with a couple back ups.

Other Thoughts: The built in stand offs had me a little uneasy at first, especially since both my new mother board and CPU were somehow fried out of the box. But after getting replacements and using some spacers my mind was at ease.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Pretty sturdy. Very quiet.

Cons: Door is hard to remove. Access to slots is troublesome. Feels 'cheap'. Tried to file for rebate and there is no link. Contacted NewEgg and Thermaltake and no response was received on either end.

Other Thoughts: Would not have purchased without the rebate and I never got it anyway. Oh well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, Great Price

Pros: Great Cable Management, Good airflow, easy to disassemble, Great that it offers usb 3.0 on the front, lovely design

Cons: Would be better if it came with more fans, no problem though for $9.99 i picked up a coolermaster 120mm fan for the front intake, which the case supplied the screws for.
