5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: I originally bought this case for the thermostat and stayed for the space and slots!

Cons: Not a whole lot of space in between the back of the motherboard and the case for wire stashing.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap case to avoid

Pros: holds your components

Cons: cheap
flimsy
gimmicky
annoying LEDs and APEVIA logo
topheavy w/PSU-I think it's actually warping
non-standard retaining rivets instead of screws
non-painted interior
lousy silver paint-could have done a better job with "chrome" spraypaint
weak molex power connectors
+++no cable management
ugly slash on window-don't know why they claim it has any airflow
no tool-less installation

Other Thoughts: I could have bought a NZXT Source or a much nicer case. this case is flimsy, and has no quality standards. I wish I hadn't bought it. completely gimmicky, not sure what else to say or how to describe my frustration or how to emphasize the lousy case quality.
Anyway, painted case interiors usually set lousy cases apart from good ones, and pay attention to weight. (so you know if they're made from 1mm thick aluminum like this) And believe me, you'll get sick of your computer looking like a glowing blue transformer pretty fast.

5 out of 5 eggsFor builds under $500

Pros: it was worth $25 to me (if the MIR works)
not too flimsy
pretty nice fans. the fans are worth like $25 alone, @ about 20db and 55 cfm if i remember right and they're molex connectors.

Cons: my temperature display isn't working. I plugged it in and it never lit up. I don't really mind.

Other Thoughts: you get what you pay for, i guess. I'm happy with it. ill probably upgrade later. i'm going to have to side-mount my watercooling radiator.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: Plenty of space, many fans, LED, side window, easy to access insides from both sides, built in thermometer, looks awesome!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap case, and boy did I find a great deal. This case has plenty of room for anything you need, plus is full of fans! I've been running my system in this case for just under a year and couldn't be more pleased. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new case.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent for the money

Pros: Cost is low, Comes with several nice features.

Cons: Feels a little flimsy

Other Thoughts: This case came with easy to use front I/O ports/interface. Mounting the mobo was quite easy. The multipurpose temp gauge is quite nice (though lacks the thermal tape they recommend to connect the sensor to a heat sink). Cable management is doable with provided cable run ports, but anything other than a modular PSU and it quickly becomes a hassle to run all the power cables.
Good for the money, but you could find better with a little bit of research.

2 out of 5 eggsDo not buy, bad with cooling

Pros: Looks cool.

Cons: As I mentioned above, this is not a good case for cooling.

Your system will overheat.

I tested this machine at a local cyber cafe, they had a number of these with as much as 6 fans inside and the case had a temperature of 90 !

From what I've heard the whole setup for the fans is wrong.

The owner of said cafe had these built for him by Cyberpower.

And apparently the man knew nothing about computers, because he thought 90 degrees is good.

Which isn't good, it's bad.

It's bad that 6 fans can't even keep this baby running at half that temp.

My Rosewill Challenger case only has 3 fans, and keeps my CPU and system Temp no hotter than 35-38 degrees.

This case(the one you are viewing)will go as high as 90.

Even on idle temps.

Other Thoughts: Just ask yourself, doe this sound like a good case ?

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice, but be CAREFUL!

Pros: Temperature Display, Durable Metal, Awesome Blue Light, Lots of Space

Cons: No rubber spacers between case + components.

Other Thoughts: It's a very nice case + I got the rebate :). Just be careful about contact between the motherboard and the case itself because it causes a short and may break your motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great case! At the time it was the cheapest case on Newegg. I'm happy I have the side window, and the extra fans keep everything cool inside.

Cons: As previously stated, the fan plugs are junk. I just connected them all together and have one big tail for all of them.

Other Thoughts: If I had to do it again, I'd definitely buy this case again!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Size

Pros: Enough room for everything.

Cons: 2 of the lights on the outer fan are a light blue while the other 2 are dark blue. It's not really a big deal for most people but I'm a little ocd.
