4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: looks great, decent quality, sufficient hardware

Cons: When i installed my GA-78LMT-USB3 MB the computer would not boot. After some stressful troubleshooting what fixed the problem was taking the MB out and sanding the paint off the MB mounting holes to ground the MB to the case. FYI

Other Thoughts: I am happy with this case despite my initial issues.

4 out of 5 eggsSlightly undersize but not under featured.

Pros: Simple clean design has plenty of attitude without being overly obnoxious.
Easy front panel removal with no connecting wires.
Red LED rear fan included.
Fair price for the build quality.

Cons: The case is slightly short and narrow, so a full 160mm tower fan will have issues fitting into the case. And normal full size 120mm case fans will not nicely fit on either the top or front (outside) fan positions.
Complete removal of the power supply necessary to clean the plastic mesh filter for air intake at the bottom of the case. (It just snaps in via plastic tabs that point down.)
Provided tool free drive locks seem very cheap and flimsy. (I tried them but ended up not using them.)

Other Thoughts: There is very little gap at the top of the case and full size case fans will not fit in that location. A similar issue goes for the front fan position. I ended up attaching my fan inside the case between the HD cage and the inside wall. The gap for the nuts to fit was small since they aligned with the HD cage edge, but it was only slightly difficult to acheive with some needle nose pliers to hold the nuts.
The front to back drive cage has plenty of room to install drives before too many cables or other parts are installed.
The plastic tabs holding the metal meshes covering the drive bays in are too stiff and will tend to break instead of bending properly. Care must be taken to prevent breaking them off entirely.
The case comes with a brass 'post' that fits in the middle center motherboard screw hole. You can not replace this with a stand off as the height is wrong for it. All other screws fit into the case directly, no stand offs required as the case is built for direct screw-in.
I chose this case because of the more conservative design with minimal molded plastic parts sticking out. Drive bays and front audio/USB connectors easily accessable with no other extraneous covers or connectors up front.
Also the case had minimal 'windows' and cooling vents. I don't overclock or go overboard with cooling fans, so this was a good compromise in ventilation and design for me.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: The case looks great, has usb 3.0, it's very well built, and it's at a great price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I thought this case may have been a bit small, but once I received it and opened it up I was relieved. Everything fit in perfectly and I still have plenty of room for fans and storage.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!!

Pros: Very well build case. Case is built in mind, that air flow comes first! My 8100 xps case I could feel the heat of my 280x on the side and felt safer with case open then closed. I won't have to worry about that now! AMD fan and Intel fan. Love the look of the case! Even though some of the parts will be intel. I buy the best available for the money. Could care less who built it. If had the choice though. AMD all the way.

Cons: If not an AMD fan look for the cheaper black case.

But do wish I came with more fans!

1 in back, so am on newegg.com to grab more fans. 1 top (if can fit) 1 front , 1 back, 1 side fan.

Other Thoughts: Will tell others of the case as well as pictures that were taken for future builds of clients.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Case

Pros: I love the decal and air flow possibilities.

Cons: NO cable management what so ever. Get those twist ties ready. 2 mobo stand off surprised me, but turns out the have raised bars that take care of rest. PSU spot has a corner holder that you'll have to un-screw b4 installing psu.

4 out of 5 eggsThermaltake V3 Black AMD Edition

Pros: -Nice compact size
-Nice AMD logo on the side
-Top exhaust ports probably can have a small water cooling mounted to it with a slight mod
-Not as heavy, but sturdy

Cons: -In order to install a front fan, they used 4 screws to hold the majority of it and then small pins to pop off the front face. Felt like I was gonna break the case trying to pop it off.
- Not much cable Management, but expected for a small case

Other Thoughts: If you get this case, go ahead and get a modular PSU, I would also recommend that you buy zipties or something to hold the wires together.Also before getting a PSU check the sizes because theres a L bracket that helps hold it in and if it goes to far, you'll start to cover the bottom fan slot

4 out of 5 eggsNot everything is as it seems...

Pros: A sharp looking case with good bay capacity at a very fair price. Build quality on mine appears to be very high and overall I'm pleased with my choice.

Cons: Looks can be deceiving. The one thing I didn't like about this case was the front ports for audio and USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. For one thing it made no sense to me to have both USB versions when 3.0 is backwards compatible, not to mention that you've now used up the header and if you want more 3.0 ports you'll have to add a card. Make them both 3.0 and get full capability from the 20 pin header you have to connect to. And that ties in to the second thing that bugged me about that setup, which is that if you wanted to put a multifunction panel on that included audio or USB 3.0 ports you were going to wind up with some that weren't connected and which wouldn't work. Fortunately, looking at the photos, it seemed you could remove those ports and just slip a different device in that slot. As I said though, looks can be deceiving. While taking off the front allows you access to remove the port hardware and cables (just attached with screws), turning over the face gives you the nasty surprise that the upper bay cover isn't actually a removable cover, it's molded into the face to look like one but is actually non-removable. Bummer! I bought the case, and a multifunction card reader with audio jacks and USB 3.0 and eSATA ports intending to just remove the stock unit and replace it with the card reader. Yes, I can put the card reader below it, that cover is indeed removable, but both devices need a 20 pin header, which means one of them is going to be non-functional. I really wish Thermaltake would read this and redesign this portion of the case because it really limits what you can do with it and that has to be hurting sales of it. I know that if I had known this ahead of time I would have bought a different case, and I'm sure others have thought the same way. It should also be noted that the case does not come with the nice black knurled case screws as shown in the photo of the Kensington security slot (I wish it did), just regular shiney hex screws.

Other Thoughts: Since I already popped out sheet metal covers for two of the 5.25 bays to mount my 2 bay high fan controller I can't return the case, so instead I'm going to try a little front panel surgery with my Dremel and a saw blade to remove that upper false cover and still mount my card reader. Since it's all plastic it shouldn't be difficult, and will look just fine when I'm done if I'm careful and take my time. I really don't understand why the manufacturer made the case this way when having that as a removable module would have resulted in a much more versatile and user friendly product. I took off an egg for this, otherwise this would be a 5 egg case IMHO.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap Case

Pros: The case is top notch for the price you are paying. The only problem i had was putting a liquid cooler in it, then again thats my fault for going with the mid and not the full.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: like i said if your expecting to pack the case with tons of things you might want to go with a full.
