5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: Absolutely the best case I have ever built with. There is so much room to work and the cable management system is perfect. This is a very well built case and I'm glad I spent the extra money on it. This case is huge! The pictures do not do it justice. The fans on low are slightly noticeable and only get slightly louder on high. The lights are pretty cool but it's nice you can turn them off. I would absolutely recommend this case to anyone that wants something well built and easy to work with.

The drive enclosures are wonderful and work flawlessly. Everything up front works as it should. All USB, SATA, E-SATA etc work great and are well placed on the case. The front and top panels are really nice with the mesh metal just be careful picking the case up (don't grab onto the front of it), grab it from the very bottom. The power supply bracket is a really nice touch to keep the power supply firmly in place.

Really can't get over the quality of this case for the price. The cables and cable management system do wonders for the glass panel as all you see is really cool components. The green light matches perfectly with my MSI GTX970 and even my wife (who thinks everything I like is so "boy") thinks it looks pretty cool.

I put this in it:

Intel Core i5
MSI GTX970
MSI Gaming 5 Z97 MB
16GB GSkill Memory
EVGA 220 80 PLUS GOLD 850 W
SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 256GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (you should get this thing, WHOA FAST!!)

Cons: Cant think of any. If anything, and I'm really being picky here, they could have made it easier to pick up. Don't grab the front panel as it comes off pretty easily. Careful when you grab it from the bottom in back as you will be supporting all the weight on the screen/filter. Other than that this case is 100%

Other Thoughts: Buy this case and build something awesome!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case - Liquid Cooling Tip

Pros: Lots of room, lightweight, great cooling, no screws needed for hd drives. Love the hot swap sata port and extra usb on top.

Cons: This case is NOT compatible with the Thermaltake 3.0 Water Cooling ULTIMATE system. It only fits 240mm radiators, so make sure you get the Thermaltake 3.0 Extreme instead or you'll make the same mistake I made.

Other Thoughts: Love the case, would buy again, wish it was compatible with the higher end cooling systems.

4 out of 5 eggsFitted my needs for an ATX host build with a hot-plug SATA port

Pros: I bought two of these Thermaltake Chaser MK-I ATX full-tower cases - one in 2013, one in 2016. This model has a top-loading bare-drive SATA bay, which is great for making backups on 3.5" or 2.5" drives, if, like me, you're not inclined to go all-cloud for your backups. (Hey, who can upload all that much data even through a broadband connection, much less retrieve it in a timely way, if you don't necessarily want to trust a data-deduped backup product with vendor-defined mystery encryption?)
The first (2013-purchased) case's fans have held up pretty well, at least with intermittent daily use and occasional outdoors dusting operations.
The screw-less/tool-less removable 3.5" drive mounts are not bad, although the rear-facing SATA data and power access area is a tighter squeeze than I like.

Cons: On on the con side, of modest-to-poor quality is the Thermaltake Chaser case's SATA cable running to the top-load hot-plug port - which of course you should ensure that your motherboard is configured properly to use. It seems to be okay, but it's unclear whether it's really intended to support a SATA 3 (6Gbps) port connection. The Thermaltake case's cardboard box art shows a 2011 copyright, which might point to an answer of "nope, not really".
In contrast, SATA cables that came with the Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 motherboard are clearly embossed "6Gbps".
Also, the Thermaltake case's SATA connector sits a bit loose in the motherboard's port for my tastes - the case connector doesn't have one of those positive-click clips.
In 2016, the case design is showing its age, lacking any sort of future-proofing USB-3.1 ports - but on the other hand, for now, while my aforementioned Z170 chipset motherboard includes two rear-facing USB-3.1 ports, it doesn't have internal connectors for additional USB-3.1 ports anyway.
The usual motherboard power/reset/audio/etc. connectors mostly each use an embossed triangle instead of clearer "+" or "-" symbols.
All of the case-to-motherboard connectors, along with the SATA data and power connectors, make a mighty pile that might be a bit of a squeeze on the one side of the case when it's closed up.
The case fans - particularly the front-facing one - are difficult to clean properly.
The clips on the case's removable filters are _very_ fragile.
The 2013 case's rotating flange-legs underneath can shed their mounting screws over time, and you might not be sure from where the screws came if the screws drop while you're moving the case.
It's hard to find proper hand-gripping points on the case when you need to move the case; grab it in the wrong place, and you might find that the bezels pop off unexpectedly, which might then cause you to lose your grip on the case.

Other Thoughts: The Thermaltake Chase case is not a bad choice, even in early 2016, but don't man-handle the removable filters.
It would be nice if Thermaltake were to provide additional adapters for the drive bays - the case comes with only one, and it is the only thing I've found so far to be perfect for mounting a Gigabyte front-facing USB-3.0 2-port extruder. Tracking down additional adapters, bezels, and filters without part numbers - even assuming that these sorts of case components are available separately - might be a chore. (However, I admit that I haven't put much effort into looking just yet, so your mileage might vary.)

5 out of 5 eggsWonderfully spacious. Extraordinarily Huge. 5 eggs

Pros: - Much space. Much slots. Much airflow. Much cable management. Much features. 3 fans standard(!!!!). Such wow.

Cons: - I can't use it to cook my breakfast, even at the hottest workloads (DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS). Otherwise, flawless case.

Other Thoughts: - Oh my goodness. This thing is huge. I thought my body was ready when I ordered it -- I horribly wrong. This case is a monster (a very nice monster that loves to hold all your components). Do not brush that fact aside, as it is truly a Full Tower. Very good airflow, comes stock with 1x140mm exhaust fan in the back and 2x200mm fans in the front (intake) and top (exhaust), with another 200mm fan grill on the side (not included), one at the top (also not included, supports 1x200mm or 2x120/140mm fans), as well as a 120mm fan slot on the bottom (not included). There are grills all over this thing, so if you overheat then you must've turned all your fans off. Cable management is amazing, with tons of rubber grommets and plenty of space for behind-the-scenes cable management. Dust filters on the front intake and bottom intake areas, which can further help protect your PSU intake. Both dust filters are easily removable. Motherboard standoffs are preinstalled for you, and there is plenty of room for aftermarket cooling heat syncs (liquid or air cooling). Included are plenty of screws and drive-bay adaptors in case you need even more 3.5/2.5" drives. Tons of external I/O on the top of the case, and special buttons for controlling fan speed and LED coloring (Red/Green/Blue/Alternating modes). Feet of the case can turn to 6 different orientations for maximum stability or compact positioning. Get this case. You know you want it!

TL;DR
Why are you reading reviews for this case? Go and buy it already. This case is amazing. Tons of features for a great price. You won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!!

Pros: Very well built, great price, very easy cable management. This thing looks very nice in the room. All drives tool less, easy mounting for (2) SSD's and sing;e hard drive.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Great for long cards, was able to hide all but 1 cord behind the motherboard. Plenty of rubber grommets to connect all phase's of the computer. Was easily able to wrap my power cords around from front to back.

Would highly recommend buying!

4 out of 5 eggsLove the case, almost perfect

Pros: Lots of room, love the drive bay at the top, and the built in location to mount the 240mm radiator.

Cons: If your going to give me drive trays, give me a back plane to plug them into. The bottom dust filter would be easier to clean if it came out the front vs back as I have to unhook everything and pull the machine around to get to it.

Other Thoughts: I normally like to have the warm air exit the top, but with the radiator up I pull the cooler air in, and I am venting to the back and side, which is fine as the back location didn't have filter on it anyway. Case stays cool enough. Would be nice if the fan controller had more outputs, and if they made the color fans in other sizes but 200mm, that operated the same. If you put a huge power supply in the bottom its very close to the lower fan, you might lose access to the modular plugs.
