5 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Case

Pros: You get what you pay for. This is a nice case and worth the money. If you you need a case like this.

Cons: My friends keep staring at it like in a trance state.

Other Thoughts: If you want Ferrari quality, don't expect to get it at Ford prices. I've read alot of the reviews here and they are mostly complaining about space. Well, then buy a larger case. It's exactly the size I expected and Im not trying to put a V8 in a lunch box. Next complaint are case fans. Who cares. 80mm fan for $2.49? I don't have time to stress over $3. Gimme a break. Next complaint, airflow. What do you want? A NASA wind-tunnel for testing drag co-efficiency? It's a metal box, flip the fans around, buy a 5.25 bay fan unit if its really breaking 110 Fahrenheit.
There is a reason they make more expensive cases, but people are too cheap to get em' and complain for buying this a lesser case.

4 out of 5 eggseh..

Pros: It does look pretty cool. i also put in some cathode blue led to match. Airflow is OK(not great)

Cons: The fans are very cheap....one failed 8 months after use i put in an extra one i had. For a gaming rig i would get a case with better fans.

Other Thoughts: for the price it is not a bad case though i think u can buy a better quality one for the price

5 out of 5 eggsa good case

Pros: -good airflow
-plenty of room
-lcd temp readout
-really lightweight -due to thin steel, not really a con as i appreciate it being lighter than a smaller oem micro-atx tower.

Cons: the only real gripe i have is the front usb ports are upside down.

the case fans run off the peripherals on the psu as opposed to the mobo. no big deal i'm only using the front one for crossflow.

Other Thoughts: amd 8150 fx bulldozer with liquid cooling kit, asrock 970 extreme3, 32gb gskill sniper ddr3, cooler master 460

1 out of 5 eggsLow circulation

Pros: Cute. Easy to open and install.

Cons: The fans don't allow enough circulation and it gets really hot. Ii had to adjust the fan on my graphics card because it would over heat and turn off.

1 out of 5 eggsresponse from last review

Pros: it works

Cons: its awful

Other Thoughts: i wrote this post " awful airflow, no cable management, gimmicky thermometer takes up a sata port, on/off buttons are awkward, no m..." its been brought to my attention that the thermometer doesn't take up a sata port, my bad. still a piece of garbage, tape a few shoeboxes together and use that before you buy this case.

2 out of 5 eggsabsolute garbage

Pros: its a case. and it works

Cons: awful airflow, no cable management, gimmicky thermometer takes up a sata port, on/off buttons are awkward, no mesh for extra fans, barely enough room for a good nvidia graphics card, most of all NO CABLE MANAGEMENT, for a case with a window i thought they would put some grommets at least but no, now i have to stare at this messy configuration, oh and led's suck too(there is literally 2 red led's)

Other Thoughts: dont be fooled by the gimmicky thermometer and horrid led's...

Manufacturer Response:

The temperature gauge does not use up a SATA power connector. It hooks up to a standard 4-pin peripheral plug.

2 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: somewhat roomy and can fit some of the larger sized graphics cards.

top mounted power supply

the wire that cooresponds to the front temperature display is long enough to attach to any one thing in the case

Cons: absolutely horrible air flow; i tried to put a 6950 2gb iceq card in here and while the card itself did a great job of keeping itself relatively cool, the inside temp of the case blew up fast. a gtx 570 was tested in this case as well and the same problem occured.

front LED that lights up Apevia logo very misleading in pictures and uneven in reality - very bright on right side and dims as it travels down a light tube to the left side of the logo. fail job designing that by the mechanical engineering team.

side panel case fan prevents use of cpu fan cooling system (ex: hyper 212 +/evo) and makes for tight fit of a liquid cooling system but that is possible if you can bend the tubing away from the fan. also 2 of my leds on the side panel fan were burned out within a year.

front temperature monitor LED that lights up the display burned out within a year.

front power/reset button is just that; displays 4 symbols top/bottom/left/right but only left right movements do anythi

Other Thoughts: this case is not for any serious gamer. any future upgrades will cause a lot of headaches and overheating issues. your case is just as important as your cpu/gpu. do yourself a favor and get something like a coolermaster sniper black edition.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent case.

Pros: This is a decent case for a gaming rig with one high end video card. Everything fits nicely and things are laid out well, case feels pretty sturdy and not too heavy.

Cons: - Poor air flow from the front of the case if you add another fan.
- The LED for the hardrive light do not show up well on the front panel.
- The temperature sensors always seem to run a bit on the high side when reporting temperatures.
