5 out of 5 eggsBig case features, small footprint.

Pros: Easy access with 5 removable panels. Even the naked frame is rather pleasing to look at if your a tech geek.

Cons: It rattles a bit, but a little foam tape solved the problem.

Other Thoughts: Great for that small but powerful build.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome for what it is.

Pros: Modular.
Semi small size.
Can install cpu cooling. or new processors without pulling the motherboard out.
It's HD caddies even know there's only two that's all I could need.
The see through window got to love.
& Room for two exhaust fans.

Cons: Not much if any cable management that I can see, but I don't need it :D so no real con there.

Other Thoughts: This is my new favorite case. I originally was interested in Corsair Carbide Airs, and Coolermaster Elites, but hell this one for my needs is just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect HTPC Case

Pros: Small! This thing is only ~ 10" x 10" x 12", so it's almost a perfect square. Slightly deeper than it is wide or tall. But only being about 10" tall makes it perfect to fit into a small area of an entertainment center. I have mine sitting on one side of my enclosed entertainment center behind a glass door. Looks amazing.

Functionally, this is the best small ITX case I've ever worked with. This was a personal build, so I wanted something that would be easy to work in since I swap parts out often. I also wanted something easy to clean as I blow my computers out fairly often to keep the dust at bay. Thankfully, this thing has removable panels on ALL sides. That's right, not only do the sides come off, but the top and bottom does too. 360 degrees of access. Popped the top off and blowing it out is so easy. The case is sturdy, but light, so it's cake to clean it out and move it around. Perfect if you want a small desktop to bring with you anywhere as well.

The fan on the front is huge (200mm) and quiet. It moves a fair amount of air for such low RPM. I accidentally broke one of the blades on the fan that comes with it, and was able to replace it with a standard CM 200mm fan, so don't worry if you want to replace it or NEED to replace it, standard 200mm fans will work.

Cons: A little tight if you go crazy with the cable routing like I did. It was a bit of a chore to disconnect the stock 200mm fan for replacement once all the parts were installed, but I was able to do it, which is more than I can say for a lot of ITX cases. There is enough room to work inside. Not many other issues though.

Other Thoughts: All in all, and great case. Not a huge fan of ThermalTake, but this case blew me away. I will definitely be using this in builds for any other ITX machines I build in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for a little gaming rig

Pros: -Small
-Lightweight
-Lots of room for cable management
-Has a window
-USB 3.0 front panel
-Massive 200mm Fan preinstalled

Cons: -Power button is easy to accidentally hit when plugging in headphones
-Front panel is not rotatable

Other Thoughts: Came with the 200mm fan blades detached from the housing for the fan. It looked like it may have been dropped in shipping but regardless it wasn't Thermaltake's fault and Newegg painlessly replaced it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little gaming rig.

Pros: Fantastic fit and finish.
Front 200MM fan is whisper quiet and moves plenty of air.
ALL the panels come away from the actual frame of the case.
ANY PSU will fit in the bottom.
Fan filters included on top and bottom.

Cons: Front panel can't be turned if you were to change to configuration of the case by swapping the panels around.
Thermaltake states in the manual that you have 140mm in cpu heatsink room, after finding a decent heatsink at 139mm tall....it wouldn't fit under the clear window. So its more like 136~137mm.
This case will NOT hold any of the top end GPUS.

Other Thoughts: I got this case because I am limited on desk space. I use my PC for heavy gaming and media streaming. Don't be fooled by pictures, the case is much larger than it appears. If you're tight on space like I am, make mesurements and compare them to the Newegg specs. Over this is an awesome case. Lots of air moves in this thing! It's a bummer that a 240 mm Rad won't fit in here......No matter how hard I tried, there is just no way. :( Due to the way the framework is on the back side of the front panel you can't use a 200mm Rad either. I had a Gigabyte GTX780ti I was hoping would fit. . . . .NOPE. Just a tad too long. So I got a new EVGA GTX 970 and it fit just fine. My only real gripe about this case is the heatsink mesurements being wrong, now I do realize that it also depends on your motherboard pcb.......I'm using and ASRock Z97 Board, it's standard pcb.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small but not too small. I liked the separate compartment for a full size ATX PSU. The fan is HUGE and very quiet. Does not feel cheap at all. A MSI GTX 960 fits fine.

Cons: None so far. I love it. Maybe it would have been nice for them to include dust filters for the side panels.

Other Thoughts: Case was part of my ~$650 build

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive, great layout, lots of space for a mini ITX motherboard with air cooled CPU, low CPU temps, very low noise.

Cons: 1 egg off because the panels are very thin, some flex to chassis under stress, front panel orientation cannot be changed and case badge cannot be removed without mods being performed (they are doable though ;))

Other Thoughts: I bought this case for its low price and decent room for an air cooler. I installed a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 CPU single fan cooler on an i5 4460, Asrock H97M-ITX/ac motherboard. With the 200MM fan on this case it runs very cool! I did not install any additional fans and the idle temps are an incredible 30C CPU and 32 system at 24 degrees ambient temp. After 1 hour of Prime 95 the CPU got to 40 max. These are stock clocks, a small SSD, no discrete video card, 500W PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: Efficiently sized, the fan in the front is excellent. The description states that there is only space for 2 drives (SSD or HDD), but it is possible to fit in 2 hard drives, and let 2 more SSD's hang loose.

Cons: The reset button is very easy to press, on accident, if the case is placed on the ground near your feet. However, as the panels are all the same size, you can rotate them, to change the orientation of the front panel. Also, the absence of 80mm exhaust fans in the back makes the case very hot.

Other Thoughts: An incredibly high quality case, especially for the price. It's attractive, it runs cool, and it is one of the most versatile cases I've ever owned. 10/10 would recommend.
