Apevia's X-Alien-BK/500 RT mid-sized tower speaks for itself of its top notch quality. This dynamo's sturdy construction and stabilizing folding legs tell of a solid future without damage. Its motherboard tray will let you use ATX, micro ATX, and baby AT. for the most flexible options. The five 5.25" external drive bays, and two 3.5" external drive bays speaks of its readiness to evolve with new technologies, while its shielding door and lock demands respect to those who might threaten all under his protection.

The five internal hard drive bays give you some notion of just how intelligent your system can become. In a whisper quiet voice you'll hear the cooling potential of the 120mm fan in the rear and 80mm fan up front. All of this, however, might be drowned out beneath the screaming cool looks that will undoubtedly make your system the instant envy of the neighborhood.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very good looking case, good power supply, very easy to put in motherboard with the removable MB tray

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The only bad thing I can think of for this case is it is VERY big. Looking back, I wish I would have bought a little smaller one, but its a problem I can easily deal with, and is not the fault of the case.

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent Case Period.

Pros: Huge case. Lots of room to run power to things. fits my ASUS M2N-E mobo no problem. No cuts. no sharp edges. Even the PSU is good in this case. Worth every penny. Excelent case for moding too. Like its been said befor. The front drive cover can be broken very easily so be carefull. awsome clip design for the HDD and DVD/CD Roms. The locks on it are nice to keep people out. Like my brothers

Cons: None so far. only thing would be is that the fans dont light up. Have yet to test the temp inside the case due to a shipping error of my AMD X2 cpu and DDR2 800 ram...not untill monday :(

Other Thoughts: I used fans from my other Apevia case I bought for my 1st build for the 2 front panel fans. They light up so the front glows blue through the vents on the front. looks great. I got rid of the stock fan cover on the side and replaced it with one from my old case. looks nice. All together a great case to mod and for upgrading

4 out of 5 eggsCase OK USB2 not OK

Pros: Great case, easy to work with, good ventilation.

Cons: Front USB2 cable was not wired correctly. Pin 10 shouldn't have a wire.

Manufacturer Response:

Different motherboard manufacturers do use different USB pinouts. If you feel up to it, the wiring can be easily fixed. You can remove wires from the USB lead and place them in the correct slot. Please see attachment. support@apevia.com

2 out of 5 eggsMediocre

Pros: The installed case fan is extremely noisy the power supply is cheap. Installation of disks is quite cumbersome. The box only comes with one back plate. The 5 1/4 trays allow the CDROM and other large objects to knock out motherboard capacitors. The plastic front door is flimsy.

Cons: Solid construction.

Other Thoughts: This case is extremely basic and lacks any creative thought.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: This is a VERY BIG Case with plenty of room for airflow, Optical Drives, and Hard Drives. The best feature, is the Mobo Tray comes out with 2 big screws and locks back into place. Being the first computer I ever built, this helped a lot. Comes with more screws than I will ever need. Power supply was very good too.

Cons: Pretty big and kind of Heavy

Other Thoughts: I bought this case at a great price and it is really good quality. I would recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellant Case

Pros: I recently mounted an eVGA 680i SLI motherboard with an old Pent D 805, Asus Silent Square cooler and two GeForce 7600GT's in this case. It still looks empty inside. Positively huge case with great airflow.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This case sat in a corner for an entire year after I bought it because I couldn't scrap the funds together to get the Motherboard and Memory I really wanted. Built the system and fired it up. Vista installation went off without a hitch. Really sharp looking case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lots of room to work around, the thumbscrews for the side panels are a plus. I especially like the removable MB tray. Comes with lots of screws.

Cons: Routing the cables with lots of drives installed can be a pain.

5 out of 5 eggsBEST ALL AROUND!!!!

Pros: HUGE Case. Easy to remove MOBO tray. Plenty of parts such as drive mount screws and MOBO standoffs. Very clean exterior and interior. Zero sharp edges. After searching for over a year to find the perfect case, I finally found it. Lots of air flow in the box helps to keep temps way down. (Processor 25C at Idle and 30C after 1 hour at full load.) Case has never been above 27C overall.

Cons: Included fans are not temp controlled and fun at full throttle the entire time, but no louder than my D*LL tower.

Other Thoughts: could have included Temp Controlled Fans instead of Straight Wired Fans.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case.

Pros: This case is great. Very sturdy, tons of room, looks sharp, stays very cool inside. I suggest that you get two 80MM LED fans for the front, they add a rather nice effect to the case as well as keeping it cool. This case has tons of features, excelent buy.

Cons: The plastic front door is rather flimsy, not a big problem though, just keep it closed when it's not being used.

Other Thoughts: Abit KN9 SLI, AMD 64 X2 5400, 2 GIG Kingston HyperX DDR2, EVGA 7950GT 512, Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE.
