4 out of 5 eggsJust upgraded years later

Pros: -An ungodly amount of space for a home computer.
-Good dynamics (In my opinion)
-Well made and can take a beating

Cons: -An ungodly amount of space taken up for a home computer.
-Can't put under my desk.
-USB ports are made poorly. I had trashed 2 of the front USB ports within a year (The connector actually chipped off)

Other Thoughts: Very well made case at the time. Had plenty of good flow with the right fans, and I never had any issues with it.

The only gripes I have with it are the USB ports up front that are horribly made, and the obtrusive upper media rail. The front fan was also very difficult to access for regular cleanings.

3 out of 5 eggsDesent large case

Pros: i bought this case for the size, but was not to sure just how big it would be, i took many hours comparing the pics of all the full tower cases that i liked, then eliminated them based on pics of features involving fan exhaust, and intake. the double space for 120's in the back for exhaust or intake help sell me on this one, because i wanted to mount a (sealed water cooler) with (2) peltier tek coolers, and it was a great fit. not to mentioned the awesome power cooling i now get. i also got it on sale for $70, reg $185 i think. and there's not many choices for full tower cases to be had for under $100.

Cons: *To my surprise, it was shipped with no feet in the box. and after contacting newegg, they no interest in getting me the feet or, discounting the sale in some way, after the fact. (one egg taken)
i had to contact apevia myself, and they sent me the feet.
*there should have been a set of USB3.0 plugs on this case, as it's now become the standard.
*i liked the big window, BUT, it shows the harddrive cage, which i don't really like, so i will black out that area with some custom design.
*as a product designer, i think they could change the big latch, to something smaller, and change the 120mm fan to 180mm or 200mm for quieter cooling.
(two eggs taken over all) for the other combined cons, and thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The number of fans it came with was good, and one is a florescent fan, but multicolored fans would make this case so much more appealing.
the door latch does nothing, it's just for looks. and a waste of space for a bigger fan.

Manufacturer Response:

The X-JUPITER model case uses USB2.0 as its standard. It will not work with USB3.0.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Mboard Risers!?

Pros: Nice & big, room for good air flow...

Cons: OH, LETS SEE... First off, this case looks like it was returned by somebody then Apevia so re-wrapped this case and said "oh, 100 dollars off". the holes around where the psu would go were already worn like someone mounted a psu on there and took it off. scratches on the bottom. w/e comp is put together and all is running well

4 out of 5 eggsGood case with minor fixes

Pros: Large case. Tool Free

Cons: Knobs for the air flow broke day of installation also they turn like something is grinding. Also had to fix the plastic "Chrome" pieces on the side panel window.

Other Thoughts: If it were not for the broken chrome piece which I fixed with glue and the front knobs this case would have gotten a solid 5. Its an excellent case with good room however if the motherboard was maybe 1-2 inches higher I would be able to fit my third graphics card in. Excellent case none the less.

5 out of 5 eggsJust... perfect

Pros: This case was more than perfect when it arrived. It had so many nifty little slots I was amazed. It's virtually screwless so no screwdriver is necessary when adding new components (other than the motherboard). The best feature I would say it the storage box inside the case allowing me to put any extra screws, rails and adapters inside it so I really can't lose it. Just perfect.

Cons: I had to remove the side fan to fit my Cooler Master V6 GT i order for the side to fit back in. No big deal. Cooler Master replaces the side fan.

Other Thoughts: This case is perfect if you're looking to build a huge rig. I'm in love with it.

4 out of 5 eggsThoughts on a Great Case

Pros: -Big enough for anything (third party heatsinks WILL fit)
-Neat locks w/ keys to lock the front door and the side panel
-LCD temperature display with thermometers work well
-Separate knobs for controlling air intake and outtake
-Front fan (some newer cases from Apevia don't have a front fan) provides better air flow
-Front USBs and top USB/Firewire/Headphone support is always nice and I require it of any new case
-Clear side panel is very large. I'm not used to having a clear side panel and sometimes I look over and think I left the panel off -- then I realize it's just awesome
-Good mix of flashy and normal
-Has a built in clip to lock all of your cables down near the drive area
-Peripheral cables (LEDs, LCD, knobs) all well labeled and easy to connect to MoBo.

Cons: Taking a single egg off for this, but it's likely your case won't suffer from these:

-Wires for the LCD temperature display were interfering with the front fan (they were hanging down, and were inside the fan area) causing a horrifying noise when I first powered on the computer (as the fan hit the wires). Had to remove the front panel and fix this myself.

-Small fleck of plastic in the LCD display that will be impossible to remove without breaking it -- this is always going to be there and will annoy me.

-Left fan control knob is really tight -- seems like something's rubbing inside when I try to turn it more than half-way. Right knob is perfectly smooth, the way the left one should be. Unsure what's causing it.

-The tool/tray holder/storage case (blue case in the HDD area) obstructs half of the front fan. This renders the front fan useless to me, so I removed the little storage case. Better airflow is more important than storage within storage. I recommend you do the

Other Thoughts: Don't let the cons get you down. I'd buy this case again. It works great, looks great, and feels sturdy (and the locks with keys on everything contributes to that). Regarding the locks, this would be the perfect case for someone in a dorm setting where you don't want other people using your computer. When locked, the front panel *will not open*, so the power button, reset button, disk drive, etc., are untouchable. With the side panel locked, it's not easy to get into the side panel (but with enough force you could jimmy the side off, regardless of the lock, I think).

Either way, the locks are a strong deterrent for activating the computer.

The LCD temperature display is cool, but mostly innacurate -- You're supposed to attach the thermometer inside to a fin on the CPU's heatsink. Doing so will give you the HEATSINKS temp and not the CPU, obviously. This is ~10 degrees cooler than the CPU itself on average. So add 10 to whatever the front panel says and you'll be pretty go

2 out of 5 eggsSome issues but spacious!

Pros: The case being made of aluminum is strong, yet light and spacious. There is not much room to route cables behind the motherboard tray, but there is some room behind the drive cages to hide the cables, and with the fan controllers there will be lots of cables. Front door is solid (metal) and has a good hinge and latch.

Cons: Issues:
1. Storage compartment had broken hinges on arrival - despite a call and 2 emails, Apevia had no answer. 2. Front panel lighted logo only worked for first 30 seconds. 3. Despite having three 120mm fan mounts, closed-loop water cooler radiator does not fit on any on the fan mounts. 4. Power light is ten times brighter that the HDD light (which is barely visible) 5. Top 120mm fan hole has a grill that blocks at least 75% of the airflow, essentially making it useless. 6. No holes in motherboard tray to route cables through, so had to cut my own. 7. Plastic tool-less drive rails are made a stiff plastic and are very easy to break. (broke 2 on a SSD 2.5 bay adapter) 8. Tool-less slot cover bracket is useless if you have one card (such as video card) installed as the bracket cannot support any weight. If installing discrete graphics, you will be using screws.

Other Thoughts: Beware if using for a water cooling rig. Otherwise, the case is spacious, making it easy to route cables and install hardware. Also, the case is not painted inside but some don't mind that look.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

Pros: Love the case got it for christmas.Opened it up poped everything inside.My BIOSTAR TH67 Micro ATX Motherboard fit in nicely and the fans are keeping my Cpu at a wonderful 18C and my hard drives at 15C.Lots of room to work.

Cons: The fans were alittle confusing to setup.Mainly because im a young first time builder,but still alittle confusing and used 3 of my power plugs.My tool box also came nearly completely shattered.

Other Thoughts: Put some bubble wrap on your tool compartments when ya send them it would prevent them from breaking.

5 out of 5 eggsGiant, quality case

Pros: This case is huge. Plenty of room for expansion and airflow. Lights are only included on the front LCD and the Apevia logo on the front, while the rest of the lights are output by the two LED fans (the rear fans are translucent blue, but not LED). There's room for 5 120mm fans, with 4 included. After using the internal included termperature probes, the temperature in the case runs at only 4-6 degrees Celsius over the base temperature when initially starting. It has been stated however that the temperature probes are not exceptionally accurate, but with temperatures so significantly low, I can easily say airflow is not a problem.

I was not expecting this case to have several locks on it, but this serves as a good thing. As someone heading back to college, this lets me lock my case's panels, both front and side, from prying roommates.

4 USB ports are a treat, as are a mic and speaker output.

Cons: The fan placement on the window conflicts with aftermarket heatsinks and graphic card wiring when using crossfire. With one graphics card you can pick a slot more out-of-the-way, but when using multiple full-sized cards, the cabling does rub against the fan. My 212+ heatsink did not fit at all, so the fan had to be removed. Unfortunately this was the sole light source for the side window, but this both enabled my window to be un-tethered from the case's fan cabling, as well as letting me install a fan in the unused top slot. However, this does leave some annoying slot holes in the case from where the connecting pins originally were.

The fan controllers are a nice touch but were difficult to install due to mislabeled (and one unlabeled) cables within. Once sorted they worked quite nicely, but this increased install time by a substantial 45 minutes of debugging and cable-searching. Both of my temperature probes were labeled CPU as well, so finding the HD one took some testing.

Other Thoughts: This case is enormous. It fits nicely with all my parts with lots of room for cabling. Modular casing would have been nice given the size, but not really necessary. Plenty of mounting points exist for zip-tie users like myself. The toolless drive bays were a real treat to work with, and made installation a breeze.

Note that only two of the fans are LED capable (front and side fans), and that no other internal case lights are present. Cold cathode lights were annoying to wire into the case due to the length they had to run, but it worked out nicely with a little planning.

All in all I would recommend this case so long as you have the room for it.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems after 3 years, amazing deal for $70

Pros: Since this case was bought almost 3 years ago in January 2008 i have bought other cases for others and none compare to this one (That is considering this is bought at $70 not $160...) It has a very sleek appearance in my opinion, but very simple design. After 3 YEARS all lights, tool-less items, wires, fans, and the case itself are COMPLETELY IN TACT.

as others have said: very large, lots of space

Cons: I guess the sideways hard drive slots are kind of annoying, but i didn't mind since i was able to PUT THE HARD DRIVES IN BACKWARD, and hide all cables coming from them. Compared to other cases Ive run into, this ones wire management is kind of tough to deal with however i spent a day and was able to hide them fine.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case at its original 160 dollars 3 years ago, and im satisfied. Its so cheap now, I dont know how a case could get better for $70 when you take in the size, tool-less design, 4 120mm fans, LCD temp display and fan controllers. THE DOOR HIDING CD DRIVES looks great too and part of it almost has a black wood-like texture, visually that is; giving it even more of a sleek look.
It has feet on the bottom that you can rotate out, personally i think it looks weird unless these are out, because it looks like your case is hovering if they aren't.

I WOULD RECOMMEND SPRAY PAINTING THE SILVER INSIDE BLACK BEFORE USING. At one point i got sick of the silver inside, took everything out, got some masking tape, and spray painted the inside black. I think it looks 5x better this way.
5/5 RECOMMEND TO ANYONE I BOUGHT FOR 160 AND IM HAPPY
