4 out of 5 eggsDecent case for price

Pros: Decent mid tower for the price.

Cons: The slots for cd/dvd drives and 3.5 slots are somewhat tight, so expect to get a few scratches on em... Not enough air flow or vents. Only side and rear for ventilation...

Other Thoughts: If you are going to install a water cooler, you may want to rethink it. As the Corsair Hydro 50 cooler (120mm) won't fit into the rear fan. I had to manually add holes to make it fit. Only the side fan lights up, and the rear and front do not light up. It is more of a pink color than a red color.

4 out of 5 eggsIt seems perfect

Pros: I LOVE this case, some were talking about it being too flimsy, they are wrong. I got the case today, and it seems very firm, almost thicker than my previous case. It came with everything I needed and easy to use instructions. I'm very happy to have gotten this case intact, with everything, and in a timely fashion. (Another day and I wouldn't have felt the different about the time.) Some were also talking about lack of wire management... I found this to not be an issue. Just a small trip to the store after work to get a few cable ties and something to connect to the side of the case if I need too, simple stuff. The description on all the features of this case on the website was also correct as well as informative. Thanks for getting everything right.

Cons: None so far. Now that is not to say I wont have some in the future, I have yet to try and power it on. (buying a new power supple now.) If it powers on right and all features work, I'll boost it to 5 eggs and update my assessment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I have been using this case in builds for awhile now from pinlk to black and red. This is a good case very flashy alot of fans and there customer service doesn't mess around no machine to talk to you go straight to them.

Cons: some fans may have to be turned depending on setup. Side fane may interfere with some bulky coolers.

Other Thoughts: Great case at a budget price Apevia Rocks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case misleading

Pros: Great case, front panel snaps off easy and air flow is great.

Cons: The fans are more pink than red when turned of (no LEDs on). Not a big deal since the pictures kinda show it being lighter red. They just dont do it justice so it lost an egg. Buying more RED fans now.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks good, great price

Pros: Looks great; the LED's and LCD temp screen are very nice, and the side viewing panel looks great. Also the LED's are the appropriate brightness and won't blind you, nor will you strain to see them. The price is inexpensive.

Cons: It's a bit smaller than I expected. I bought this to replace a much larger tower which I was having difficulties making space for and when I installed the guts it was a bit difficult. I have a GeForce GTX 560 ti card which barely clears the hard drives in this tower. Also, if you are building a new system I recommend either using a modular power supply or only using one optical drive. Otherwise you will have a large issue with cable management, honestly using a modular power supply would be the best idea. The case fans don't move much air either. The one on the side I had to remove entirely to clear my massive CPU heatsink. I didn't have to do that with my last tower.

Other Thoughts: The case is well built and is very good looking, but if you need space consider a different tower.

1 out of 5 eggstoo cramped, hot

Pros: Large side-panel window.

Cons: Small, cramped, difficult to work on, only fair air-flow.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much had nothing but trouble with this case. Top mounted psu, so no top ventilation. Air-flow is fair at best. This box gets hot, sometimes very quickly, and the heat has fried a cpu cooler and an SSD. Side-panel window barely leaves room for cpu cooler. Overall it is just too small for any kind of serious upgrades.

1 out of 5 eggsNot red, it's pink

Pros: Seems like a decent case with the basic stuff you'd expect.

Cons: They worked a number of the photography for this case. This is without question pink, not red. Very different than pictured, extremely disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid case for the price

Pros: Stylish case; solid materia;, excellent air circulation w/ 3 quiet 120mm fans; transparent side looks great with red LEDs; good selection of front mounted ports/temp LCD; plenty of drive bays; fits full ATX mobo easily, plenty of room to maneuver parts for a mid-tower; includes thermal sensor for LCD

Cons: Drive bay tolerances are VERY tight, scratched my hard drive slightly; placement of side case fan doesn't leave room for a standard vertical 120mm CPU cooler; case fans are all molex only connectors and thusly single-speed.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case for the money, other reviewers have been disappointed only the side case fan is a red LED although it is noted in the specs, easily replace the other 2 with a cheap red fan and you get a very angry case. Front buttons are slightly more in the pink-spectrum than red, but not enough to notice really. Could not fit a vertical CPU cooler, had to get a flat mounted fan/heat-sink as the side case fan mounts directly over the CPU socket.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty case but some issues

Pros: Not a bad case really. It offers an adequate amount of room for all your devices. By far the biggest pro of this case is just how tasteful it is. Pretty and cool looking without being overly flashy.

Cons: Unfortunately, airflow sucks pretty hard. The side fan only has tiny slits to pull from, the front intake has no real vents to pull through. The back fan is relatively unobstructed, but if you have an LC your radiator will probably block that too. The airflow isn't so bad as that I'll recommend getting this case, unless of course you're building a very high-end rig. Those with a mid-range setup should be fine, though you'll definitely want to have those cables organized and you'll want to dust your case basically every week to keep airflow moving as well as possible.

Another small issue is that there isn't much space for cable management. With my Corsair I had to resort to using the space reserved for optical drives. It's not pretty but it doesn't obstruct airflow that much. It's just something to keep in mind.
