5 out of 5 eggsStill Happy

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Built a PC with the green one and really liked it so the next PC I built myself I went with the red. I gambled it based on a review that stated that its a nice red color and not pink at all. And its not. It looks nice and the glowing fan is actually not obstructive, visually, at all. The case is roomy, and sturdy, and seems to have pretty good airflow without any extra fans. PSU mounts on the bottom. Front closes magnetically.

Cons: Small quibbles. The worst being that the Temp Gauge wire is way too short and can't even reach to my processor, where I'd want it. And it is spacious, but still not enough. I wish there were a way to remove the hard drive brackets. And maybe there is, I never tried. But I don't think so. I have a titanic HD 7970 I wanted in there and I had to melt/slice plastic in order to do it. Also I wish the LED light on the front could be the same red as the glowing fan instead of blue.

Other Thoughts: I've built 3 PCs, including my own, with Apevia cases and we're all happy with them. Nice quality, nice looking, sturdy cases.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, no rebate as of yet.

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a really cool case, large enough to fit all of my components. It comes with two large fans and a temperature gauge on the front. It is made of metal with a plastic window on the side and red lights. Overall I am happy with this case.

Cons: I have yet to receive the promised rebate after 4 months, which was one of the reasons I chose this case. It may have been lost in the mail? Or perhaps I didn't fill out the form properly?

Manufacturer Response:

To check the status of your Mail-in Rebate, please send an e-mail to rebate@apevia.com stating your name, address, the name of the store where you purchased the item, what you purchased, the rebate amount and the rebate period. We have a 10-12 week processing period on our rebates which starts from when we receive the rebate.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty, but not optimized

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is very pretty, and it comes with a few fans, which is nice. I bought the case mainly because of its aesthetics.

Cons: Doesn't have much space inside, had to jam things tight. Only managed one fan on the top of the case, as several others have also noticed. The case would fit 2 fans on top, but with a motherboard in, cables and pieces of the board block one spot. This may only be a problem with full ATX motherboards, which mine is. Overall, very cramped inside.

3 out of 5 eggs80%

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Inexpensive
Mostly well constructed

Cons: The large fan is useless. The connector is not only so cheap that the pins push out the back, but they were miswired. The fan is 12v, but the leads were in the 24v position. The fan worked once and then stopped, presumably because of the miswired connector burning up the coils.

Other Thoughts: The side fan is not a necessity, so I'd say its still a decent box for the price. That being said, if there is one place where they cut corners, are there others?

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the side fan to get an exchange on it if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This tower is great I love it :) has plenty of room plenty of air flow and easy to build inside of.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not really a con but the 220mm fan didn't work so ordered another one, after all fans can be bad from the get go.

5 out of 5 eggsThis case is awesome!

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is well built, the fans and temperature gauge work perfectly.

The manufacturer includes a helpful manual and extra screws that you may need.

Even though I chose super egg saver shipping it arrived in less than two days.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mid-Size ATX

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Sturdy Case
-Metal Construction
-Decent 200mm fan
-Great cooling (cpu temp roughly 15f cooler)
-Grate on top is great for ventilation
-CPU temp gauge works as intended
-Arrived in perfect condition
-All intended tools and parts were present

Cons: -A tad cramped inside
-Grate on top is NOT DESIGNED for fan installation (though it can be done)
-Did not come with thermal tape for cpu temp gauge

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, and this case definitely isn't a bad buy. The unique side window and front panel make for a nice flare without being too gaudy.

The opening on top is a nice touch and is a great help with ventilation, but trust me when I say this feature is not designed with additional fans in mind. You can squeeze one fan up there but fitting two (which I had intended) proved to be impossible.

I think I can say that so far I'm very happy with this purchase and I would definitely buy an Apevia case again.

Manufacturer Response:

You can fit up to two 120mm case fans in the top vent.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome looking case, little small.

This review is from: APEVIA X-PLORER2 Series X-PLORER2-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very shiny (slightly sparkly) bezel. Has a very nice temperature sensor. The fan has a very cool glow to it and adds a nice touch to the final product and does a very nice job at lighting up the build.

Cons: No real cons, you have to open the door to access anything you put in to the 5.25" / 3.5" bays.

Other Thoughts: You can see the hard drives in the bays from the window.
