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.

5 out of 5 eggsaok

Pros: looks, blacked out inside. well stamped, almost all steel, only plastic is front bezel frame. lots of fan placement options. filters here, filters there. TT 550w fit perfect.

Cons: Oh yeah, almost forgot, since i am very pleased with this case, ..... and its been said before, top mount fan! awsome, just wont fit in the cool mesh top, with dual fan spaces with mesh pre formed for fans. mb is right up there.

Other Thoughts: This case is just fine, even with that top fan flub. as for the tool free griping plp, the tool free things are perfectly fine... ...the way hd screw spacing is makes you mount drive towards mb, leaving space for fan in font of cage, (think could get slim in the bezel outside of case under front mesh too), I only used the one to hold optic drive, so have two extra, i'd pay $1 for 'em.

The front,.. pay close here... two grip spots at bottom of face, grab there, give good tug, dont rip it off, good firm tug, whala its off, has 6 steel spring jaws (4 prongs each, nicest i've seen). there is nothing else but 4 fingers to get the front off. 2 at top, 2 bottom, 2 above half way up,so dont pull too hard, but know the retainers are not plastic, and they do fit through the holes they are in, no need to do take screws out etc.

Back to this top fan thing...
I mounted a Thermaltake 2.0 in this . in the top with tridents, had to take top fins off ram,made to do, cooler touches ram and other side of case. does not line up with mesh since it is offset, if case was 1/2 wider, with offset mesh would "fix". but its not. and it "fits" now. 2 of 8 screws in, has friction fit with case. 2 screws turned out to be just fine, since i took it out six times to rout wires, get to fan headers and moved 1 ram over 1 slot.

the front, well made? yes. mesh front has foam filters on backs of optic bay covers. behind mesh are plates to take out. (snap). grill covers retained with plastic clip/finger/thing, press back, not all the way, may snap(does'nt matter if using bay) , work it out, tight percise fit. i moved the amd in 3 spot to 1 spot, 1 and 2 spot block by water cooler in top fan spot, but did get big empty 2bay to hide my ssd card, did't find a spot set up for 2.5" drive.

after all was in, all tight and snugly fit i can put a two liter of pop, (if thats a leagle size in your state (ny lol, go get em)) in the spot the bottom fan goes. hmmmm. all this room/no room.. stll would get again.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: plenty of space for drives/storage, good potential ventilation, and looks nice.

Cons: Could benefit from holes so wires could be run behind the motherboard. I was a little sad the case comes with extra spots for fans, but not the fans themselves. I'll have to get them later. Also a small point, but the front panel power LED connection was incompatible with my motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsSLOW SHIPPING

Pros: The lady at laser ship Loretta who took my call was delightful.

Cons: Was to arrive home today however the NewEgg partner has not even given the package to the delivery company

Other Thoughts: NewEgg deliver is quick like lightning however the same cannot be said of their merchant partners. Caveat emptor

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Lots of space.
Good airflow.
Stylish without too much flash (if one cares for such things).
Easy to install accessories and the like

Cons: The front USB 3.0 port seems faulty, but I'm not sure if that's because of the case or my motherboard, so I'm not knocking an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: I used this case for my third build (also my third case). I must say, this is the easiest case I've had to work with out of the three. Aside from the pros and cons, two things I would like to make note of. First, it seems like you can add five 120mm fans, not just four (front, back, side, top x2). Second, Thermaltake's Water 2.0 liquid cooler doesn't fit; it's too big to fit anywhere, really, so I had to make a slight modification to the case itself to get it to fit. I just found it odd that two things made by the same company aren't compatible with each other.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: Very nice looking case. Good layout and simple.

Cons: None considering the price.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for the computer I am building for my 10-year old son. It is a very cool looking case (not too obnoxious and perfect for a kid) and Thermaltake has always been a good brand. This is definitely a five egg computer case for the price range.

5 out of 5 eggsThermatake AMD V3 case

Pros: this case is solidly built, has a excellant waranty and has room for almost anything you want to put in it. The thermal design is way above average. I have had 2 diferrent builds in this case and it has performed great. It looks good with red led fans in it. I have a new FM2 board and high end richland proccessor with an asus video card and a Hyper 212 cooler in it and have never seem temps higher than 42c at full load. This is a great case and I would reccomend it to anyone for a good starter or high end build. I had to use a gelid slim fan on the door to cool the graphics card, it fits good and keeps thing cool inside. I have read reviews that 120x25mm fans wont fit in the top of this case, I have 1 mounted over the heatsink exhausting hot air out the top now with no issues. I have also read that the case doesn't come with enough tooless locks, for the price I thought it came with adequate hardware, it you want more they are $3.00 ea. at the thermatake website. Neweggs shipping was great, I ordered the case had it in three days from new jersey. Thaqnks newegg for a great price on a great case.

Cons: no cons.
