5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cube

Pros: Great visual
included CPU and HDD temp monitor
carrying handle
low cost included PSU

Cons: Flimsy
cheap chassis and front bezel
cable management is... tough

Other Thoughts: First opened the case it felt rather flimsy. After the build was finished it was a lot better.

CPU and HDD temp monitor are pretty cool, though I strapped the HDD monitor to my GPU.

The bottom 5.25 Dimm slot is really tight, had to be a little more forceful then I wanted while installing my DVD drive, wasn't enough to break anything, just a little tight.

It has quite a bit of space for a much larger graphics then I currently am using.

USB ports work great, but the front side audio cable is about 3 inches too short, making the connection to the back of your mother board is tough and puts some stress on the clip.

The power supply sits so that if the wiring that comes out of the back left of it are directly in the middle of the machine. Annoying slightly, but had to do some tricky cable management to make it look better then a rats nest.

Had a problem with the original heat monitor, but Apeviahad me send the piece instead of the whole case, made me pretty happy to hear since I put about an hour and a half installing my gear and tying cables up.

The air flow is great. Plenty of breathing ports cleverly hidden in the front and the dual fans that come with it use 4 prong/Molex connectors and don't connect to your Motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsNeato.

Pros: Adequate power supply, doesn't run hot or terribly loud. Fits a GTX 660ti just fine. Was expecting a struggle to fit everything in neatly on build-day, everything came together with ease,

Cons: Not much room for beautiful cable management, but it is what it is. The handle hasn't broken yet, but i'm still not sure how much i trust it.

2 out of 5 eggsBad airflow

Pros: I bought the case because it fit in a very specific kind of space. For that, it fit very well. It's small, and the carrying handle is sturdy enough to actually use. I used it quite often when I used to go over to a friend's house for gaming.

Cons: 1) I built this computer for gaming. It's got an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SLI card (full length) in it. With that card, airflow is horrible. It's bad enough that my fans have to run at almost 5000 RPM to keep up with the heat. I no longer game very much, but I do use resource heavy programs, like PhotoShop and Premiere Pro. Any time I'm in these programs, all of the fans are running full speed.
2) The grills on the front are incredibly flimsy. I bumped one once while I was working on the computer, and one end of it popped out.
3) The backlight on the LED display stopped working after a couple months. The display still works, but I can't ever read it easily.
4) The motherboard tray is flimsy and does not fit as well as I had expected once it's loaded up.

Other Thoughts: I bought the case for a gaming computer that I was putting together. The handle works nicely for toting it around, but the little amount of space inside the case is not enough for good airflow. This is not a good case for any kind of application that requires a dedicated video card, be it gaming or media production. I imagine that if all I did was use the onboard video, and do nothing more than watch movies and surf the web, it would probably be ok.

4 out of 5 eggsHardest, most rewarding, build ive ever done

Pros: Visually looks good.
Temp read out is very nice to have.
Seems to move a good amount of air and keeps inside cool.
Pull out motherbaord tray really nice, would have rathered had top part be able to come undone though

Cons: Flimsy metal.
Psu is junk.
Not the best layout inside for newer parts(requires modifcation of case).
Little overpriced in my opnion.
Poor quaitly control

Other Thoughts: Probably would give this a 3.5 if I could. Not beacuse it was hard, because I knew it would be, but rather for the quaitly of the case. I wanted to pack as much as I could in this tiny little tower and it turned to be awesome. Wanted it to be a awesome little gaming computer that was small and it turned out great. However it required a lot of modification to the case. Had to drill several holes just to be able to plug in hardware. The metal is a little to flimsy for my taste for the price I paid for it. Some screws were not milled correctly.
Yeah the psu is junk but you should never ever use a psu that comes with a case unless you're building the computer with low end parts for checking email or something to that nature. This build was so frustrating and took me 3 days to do(doing it properly and making it look good).

For others wanting to build in this make sure you have a high knowledge of building this is not for beginners. Also really important when picking out parts the gpu can not exceed 267mm in length and the cpu cooler cant exceed 76mm in heigth.

My build:
Seasonic 620 watt atx psu
Asrock Pro4 1150 Z87
8gb Gskill
Nvidia GTX 660
WD Black 500gb
Adata 64gb ssd
Creative xtreme gamer sound card
Cpu cooler Noctura NH-l9i
Intel i5 haswell 4670

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but...

Pros: Small/Portable
Drive space
Front I/O
Carrying handle
Motherboard tray slides out for assembly
Plexi on 3 sides, can put fun lights inside to show off the goodies

Cons: 1 - The power supply that ships with the case is pretty weak. The wattage *level* is fine, but the output is flaky. When the CPU/GPU/HDDs all rev up to full power the PS overheats and dies. I will have to buy a new, stronger PS.

2 - Airflow - Although the computer does not overheat under normal operating conditions, I do feel like the airflow of the case could have been designed just a bit differently.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a computer case that can be hauled around for LAN parties or just taking over to a friend's place for gaming, this case is pretty good. The handle is pretty strong, although I haven't tried slinging my computer around. The motherboard tray slides out so that you can assemble the parts fairly easliy.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome feedback"

Pros: This is in regards to people who bought this and left descriptive reviews about the PSU! I think I broke a rib, sharted, and I havnt had tears roll down my face from laughing like this in years! "it smelled like burning plastic and made everyone at work sick" :) he even left 3 egg review despite making his coworkers sick and contaminating his work space. "it ended in a smoking death" rofl and despite having to use the 5yr old psu crom the previous case, yet another medicore review!

Cons: peoples bad fortune

3 out of 5 eggsGood looking case, but not impressed

Pros: -Looking good
-small form factor
-good positioning of stuff inside
-good airflow for your HDD
-place for 2 hdd and with the air flow, they don't go over 37deg
-once put all togheter very sturdy
-fans are dead silent

Cons: -PSU don't have 8 pins motherboard connector, I had to buy another PSU to put it in to fit the motherboard.
-PSU only have 1 PCI-e 6pin connector.
-Front headphone connector failed after 2hours, had to replace it
-Spring of the handle unmounted by itself after 2 day's
-front cover very hard to remove, the two screw are awfully positionned

Other Thoughts: That case is in itself a bad choice of overall average. I would have prefered, for the price, a better quality case with this looking but no PSU instead of an average of both.

So overall I'd say I love the look of the case, but I was very upset to have to repair it after 2hours of unboxing it. and again I'll have to take it apart, to put back the spring of the handle. Right now I'm expecting that it is the last time I have to dismantle it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Compact, decent airflow, just what I was looking for

Cons: The *only* beef I have with this case is that the PSU sits right over where you would want to put your video card. That being said, that's probably about the only place they could put it in this case

Other Thoughts: I have a small space that my computer occupies, and laying a tower down is just not kosher. I looked at this and other similar cases for over 3 weeks. No other case just quite fit what I was looking for. On top of that, I ready most of the reviews for every case I looked at, including the reviews for different colors of the same case.
That being said, several other people who've reviewed this case (color notwithstanding) have made the comment that the case is flimsy. This is only true when you have the case in pieces. The Mobo tray is flimsy, as is the case cover, but when you put it all together it's rock solid.
For anyone looking at this case thinking that it's not a viable gamer's case, I will argue with you on the sole basis that you can put a full size card in this case, with the only restrictions that it can't be over 12 inches long, and the heatsink/fan for the gpu(s) cannot stick out past the side of the pcb.

4 out of 5 eggspower supply below par...

Pros: nice case, board fit in place perfectly, plenty of room for cpu cooler. runs quiet.

Cons: Power supply only has 1 12v 4pin connector. Most of the ATX boards for AMD3/3+ processors require 2. No spliter cable included. Had to replace power supply.
Case was damaged on top, I'm betting this was because Newegg sent the package in its original boxing without any packaging to protect it, as well as they sent it Ground instead of 3-Day.

Other Thoughts: Other then the Problems mentioned in Cons, this is a very nice case and easy to install your MB in, comes with 2 heat sensors you can place anywhere on the board you wish to monitor heat. Seems to be slightly off on the temp, but pretty accurate within 1 degree. Case has a good selection of front ports. I'm happy with the case despite the above.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Good amount of space, and the construction isn't bad either.

Cons: LCD temp monitor burned out, but at the price I couldn't really care less.

Other Thoughts: Holds even a GTS 250 card with 2-4 inches to spare (length) - though you can't go any wider (my MSi Cyclone wouldn't fit due to wide heatsink)
