5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case.

Pros: Case arrived undamaged.

It's very well laid out, and has nice cable management. The motherboard mounting screws were premounted.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Very nice looking case, and solid construction.

I did have to remove the drive bay to access the SATA ports on the motherboard, then just slid the cage back in after the drives were hooked up.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case, could be better.

Pros: - Really sharp looking
- Huge amount of room behind MB panel. My cables ALL fit behind using a Corsair CX500 PSU. Result is a clean, sharp looking computer internal you can see through the window.
- Tool-less trays for the SSD, HDD, etc...

Cons: - The front panel doesn't always want to seat back into place after removing.
- One of the bays were tight; I couldn't mount anything in there. Good thing there were enough other ones for my needs.

Other Thoughts: Paid $40 after rebate and sale. Nice case for the money. Lots of ventilation, fans that come with it are real quiet.

4 out of 5 eggsGood solid case

Pros: Very solid build
Good cable management
Very roomy
Nice look

Cons: Front panel won't stay on, come loose on top left
Almost too big for mid tower
Seems to be below average for air circulation

Other Thoughts: I do like the case. Been building PCs for 22 years and this was the cleanest build I've ever done because of the cable management. Sometimes you do have to sacrifice on the size for cable management, but this case is bigger then it looks in pictures. It's a little weird that Thermaltake didn't make it possible to put a 2nd intake fan on the front. My biggest complaint is the front panel. It comes off easily, but now it won't go back on correctly. It's loose at the top left and over time, it keeps coming off. Thinking about an RMA, or just taking some time and break out the tools to fix. Overall, good value case that has a premium feel.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, Thermaltake s**** the bed with the rebate site.

Pros: Very nice case, got it on sale.
Lots of room, good hole layout for cable concealment, very well-designed motherboard tray.
The HDD mounting trays are odd, and will break when you try to remove the HDD from it.

Other than that, very nice case so far.

Cons: Thermaltake can design cases very well, but when it comes to site encoding, I have never seen a company as a whole s**** the bed harder than these guys did.
The rebate site for this case is ill-designed, and no matter what browser I am using, will stop responding before I can get it to give me a rebate form, so I guess I don't get the nice little $20 rebate card. Absolutely aggrevating. Thanks, Thermaltake!

4 out of 5 eggsFirst impressions: Solid case

Pros: - Lots of room to cable manage
- Has trays for your hard drive (though it can be difficult to put in if you have larger hard drives; fits up to 5).
- Has 3 slots for CD drives and an adapter for floppy drives I think, if anyone still uses those... It's for something smaller.
- USB 3.0 works, unlike my old case...
- Fits everything in it well
- I like the window that lets you see into the case

Cons: - The two stock fans it comes with could be better. Pretty quiet, but doesn't move much air.
- The place you mount the fans seems pretty prone to sound from vibration (at least the fans I put on the case, which were pretty loud and fast to begin with; 2200 RPM)

Other Thoughts: Pretty satisfied with this purchase. If I had to do it all over again, I'd still get this case (it was $40 after rebate)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Large Case

Pros: Lots of room for Internal and External Drives. Lots of fan mountings. Appears to be good for water cooling. 180mm of headroom for the CPU cooler, which I needed for the 160mm tall Hyper 212 EVO. Good cable management. Great build quality, no bloodied fingers.

Cons: Due to the placement of the audio connector on my MB, the audio cable required a little creativity to stretch and not be in the way. Can't lay that at the feet of the case totally, but another inch of length would have sufficed to keep it tucked away nicely. Had to add a standoff to the bottom pan for the MB and it was difficult as if the hole had not been threaded.

Other Thoughts: Tool-less mounting for drives is ok, but not a requirement by an means. Internal 3.5" drives are mounted sideways, which I like. There were some issues with cabling length (see cons). Other issues that are not the case's fault, but are mainly due to the size of the case and the shortness of the cables provided by the PS mfg., etc. Rebate made this good case a great buy.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Rock solid build quality
Easy access to important components
Price
Fan positions are logical
Screws are easy to take off
Comes with more than enough accessory parts

Cons: Had to get out the dremel tool to fit my cooler in since there is a small lip where it would go, but nothing major.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case Bad Shipping

Pros: This is a great budget case. Has great cable management and great cooling options. I really did like the HDD setup. Highly recommend this case.

Cons: I have had cases shipped to me and it always seems to be damage. I hope it is not coming out of the warehouse like this. But there were 3 good size holes in the case box. One was so deep it did debt the side of the panel. I wish I could just get a new panel because this was a quick build and don't have the time to send this back. Wish there was a better way to package these cases.
