4 out of 5 eggsSomewhat satisfied

Pros: It's a big beefy case with a lot of expandability potential which is why i bought it. Fan filters, massive case fans, and headset mount are huge pluses. Also the controllable LEDs and fan speed are a nice touch.

Cons: The paint job made it so that the panels are a very snug fit in to the case. The corners are almost immediately scuffed and one even has a spot where the paint was completely scrapped off. Another problem is a lack of space between the right panel and the case. Once any amount if cable routing is preformed, removing the panel becomes a huge nuisance. I have to press the panel against the case with one hand and unscrew the thumb screws with the other. Additionally, unless your MB can specifically support it, the hotswap port is useless. I have gotten two of these cases and the LED power indicator hasn't worked for either. These problems are small and manageable but rather irksome so i say 4/5

Other Thoughts: Customer support is a bit of a hassle. I am in the process of returning my first one and i was billed for return shipping after being on hold for around 10 minutes. I called back and was informed that once thermaltake receives the case, i will be reimbursed the shipping fee but Im not very optimistic about that.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Fans that come with are a bit quiet, the color shift is nice, loads of room Parts come off nice and easy. People say it screws them over when they pick it up, but that's really a user error, it can still be comfortably picked up, just grasp on to something that isn't the face or top.

Cons: Feet don't have rubber padding and are plastic.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Nice and big..plenty of room for anything, lights, headset lever.
Great case, has everything I need!

Cons: Nothing!!!!

Other Thoughts: I was searching for something a little plain with a window, no lights, cable management, something to keep the dust out, and this case has everything! I'm not too big on LED lights but I can turn them off, occasionally I'll turn them on. Multiple options, blue, green, red and two options that will cycle through all the colors. Great cable management. You can also do water cooling with this case. Great price for a great case! GET IT

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Big and roomy. The case comes with many nice features that make things easier to include easy docking for Sata SSD's and CD-DVD & Blu-Ray. Very Roomy. Very LED-Glowy. Very cool looking.

Cons: The Chaser has two pre-placed 200mm fans; one on top and one in front. These fans are multi-LED and give the case it distinct look. I had thought for the first 3 days that I had put the wire lead for the front fan in the wrong place as it would turn on, but not glow. I later learned, after the computer was completely assembled, that there was a break in one of the LED wires on the fan itself. Frustrating as its not worth taking apart for one small LED wire.

Other Thoughts: If they just sold those multi-led fans I'd fix it myself.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
The Chaser MK-I colorshift fan can be replaced through warranty service. Additionally, the Chaser MK-I color shift fans will be restocked shortly. Please contact Customer Service who will provide RMA instructions.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice case

Pros: I have owned a few thermaltake cases in the past and always found some bad flaws like the drive's tool less clips break, or the case plus fans would get dirty easily. This case has better tool less drive clips and has screens for the fans. Plus the rubber boots they use to route cables is nice. They also included WIRE TIES! Very nice. They also put the motherboard mount screws in for you! They really did a lot better with this case and learned from their short comings on the others.

Cons: Really non so far... but i would like to see less plastic there future versions.

Other Thoughts: Great case for a full tower. Has great options and is user friendly.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: Lots of cooling and fan locations. Looks great, easy to use, solid construction.

Cons: HEAVY! Light on top front goes from off to ~50% then fades up to 100%, fades down to 50% then turns off. This pattern is repeated. My understanding was that it was supposed to fade from 0% to 100% smoothly, it doesn't. Also the tower mounted fan control buttons are right next the reset button. I was worried I'd hit reset instead of "High" so I don't use the top button. I got a fan controller separate anyway. The supports for bays at the top do not work well with short items such as my fan controller. I have to wedge plastic in to the back of the locking mechanism to hold it in place.

Other Thoughts: I picked up 2 extra 100mm blue LED fans, so I have the front side (intake) and 2 top slots (exhaust) filled with those plus the two 100mm blue LED fans that came with the case. Then I put a 60mm on the bottom for intake and an 80mm on the back for exhaust. All together this case is a wind tunnel. With all fans turned up its a little loud but no louder than I would expect from 6 fans running at full blast. Even under extreme load from rendering, my CPU has never tripped an temperature alarm. Wheels would have been nice. But I got a rolling support separate that works okay at best.

5 out of 5 eggsA Super Nice Case

Pros: Space and More Space.
Adjustable Brace for Power supply.
Lots of cutouts to run wires and cooling hoses.
Sides and top come off independently of each other to allow easy access.
The ability to remove drive bay caddies to install drives real helpful.
Has two exhaust fans and one large intake fan that blows on your hard drives.
At each vent hole there a several sets of holes to use different size fans.

Cons: Only one I can think of is that the blue and black bay covers on the front are hard to get in and out. Could break if you take then in and out a lots. But it wasn't worth deducting a star over.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. Same wonderful service from Newegg. I also would recommend you to use the 3 day delivery if you live on the East Coast as I do. It comes from California and to use the free shipping it would take about a week to get here.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible case, Incredible price

Pros: Full featured, reduced need for screws or screwdriver, solid, snap in place, removable drive bays. I had to do some back and forth with the primary drive and my old machine. This feature made it very easy. I'm not a gamer, but my old machine would run hot when doing video or audio editing. With the ventilation and 3 very quiet fans, I can't imagine heat ever being an issue with this case. Conveniently placed connections and controls.

Cons: None found yet

Other Thoughts: I'm not easily impressed, but the design of this case blows me away especially for a reasonable price.
