5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

Pros: This is a great case for the money. I love the hot-swap drive bay on the front. Just slip a drive in there for doing backups and save the expense and additional cabling of an external drive.

Cons: Not really a "con," but I would have preferred the power and reset buttons be at the top of the case rather than the front.

5 out of 5 eggs(REVISED)

Pros: I want to modify my last review but cannot. This case really is nice and great quality, Now that i see the error in my ways i realize i was having an ID10T error ^,0 have to install hard drives opposite the windowed side to fit properly. My last Apevia was not like that so overall great product and great communication from manufacturer buy with confidence!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: nada

3 out of 5 eggsLooks cool

Pros: decent quality materials make up the tower, looks cool, and lots of room for fans

Cons: The design for the hard drive bays is the main isues I had to install my ssd in one direction and the hdd in another as there would be no way to close the side unless you have a flat molex connector. They pack it with fans makes wire management hard and unnecessary

Other Thoughts: I thought at first i had installed the hdd in the wrong direction but you cant slide the drive in from the other side of the tower I had to force it forward to fit the power connector to the drive and be able to close the side.

Manufacturer Response:

The hard drives are installed "backwards", meaning that instead of having the plugs on the left (windowed) side you would have to connect them from the right side. Just flip the drive rails 180 degrees and it should fit without any problems.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the $

Pros: It's a beast. Fans everywhere. Case temp is always well below room temp. The power and reset buttons are recessed and just awesome. Has the hot swap dock that I actually used. Awesome if you want a flashy, impressive case the lights up big time

Cons: Kind of tight behind motherboard. No panel bulge. The huge blue fan on the windowed side really blocks your view of the components but the glow is unreal

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: Okay, first off, this case looks SUPER cheesy on the internet. It is not as vibrant of a blue as it shows, so it looks more... how do I word this... darker and less bright. this might be a con for some, but for me its a plus.

* Clear/Blue side
* Good mounting and lots of room on flipside for cables
* Bottom loading fan
* comes with 1 blue LED fan (in front) and 1 big blue LED fan on the side
* Plenty of room for a water cooler
* 4 5.25 external bays

Cons: * I personally dont like the blue see through, I would rather it be a dark tint or clear. But, this case wasnt for me so I cant complain (client fell in love with it)
* Not much room for larger video card - also, not much support. I ended up mounting and extra fan under the video card to keep the weight of it off the board.
* It does not have a bottom exhaust grill fan for the PSU. Kinda cr@ppy (stupid auto filter lol), but its okay. Plenty more vents around it
* the one massive side fan looks cool but thats about it. If you want it to really function, get a better one and replace it.

4 out of 5 eggscool case

Pros: cool case which has pre installed fans.

Cons: fans are old fashion and the window glass color is to deep to see through .
it's SSD(2.5' bar)is so strange because it needs to be fixed at the bottom of case, it adds some trouble when you connect the cables. BUT STILL GOOD ENOUGH

5 out of 5 eggsGood quality for the price!

Pros: Good look. Fans relatively quite. The blue LEDs are bright but no over bearing. Easily handled all my wires and was able to route 90% of them being the motherboard mount. Easy to pull the front plastic apart for cleaning and changes/mods to stock wiring and add-ons.

Cons: Description fails to tell you that 140mm fans will fit in the top of the case. The top fans don't light up (figured they did since nothing states they dont.) Wish the case was about an inch wider, wont support most 120mm or 140mm fan heatsinks with side fan installed.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, and with this bad boy, its quite a good deal for the price. I do plan on upgrading all the fans in the case in time, as well adding water cooling for the CPU, but will run to top of case and exhaust out the top. Looking into the side case fan actually causing air flow issues and driving temps up, will try to remember to update post once I have an answer.

4 out of 5 eggsHad it for a bit less than a year..

Pros: It's a good a sturdy case although the side with the plastic window and the 200mm fan dose is a bit flimsy when you take it of, other than that it's really solid

Buttons are fool proof, I've herd about people accidentally pressing the power or restart button all the time with other cases, but both buttons are not exposed and can't really be pressed by accident

A good looking case, has a nice glow to it, fans are nice an quiet

A good buy for the money but not an amazing buy.

Cons: After less than a yer the hot-swap panel on the front broke off and had to tape it back on, but that mainly my fault because i would always mess with it.

It doesn't have any filters which doesn't really bother me but just remember you'll have to open the case up to dust off every thing pretty often

The wire management is a bit tight but this really ins,t a con since most mid size cases have the same problem but it dose have cable management some mid-size cases in this price range don't have and cable management at all

Other Thoughts: The front USBs inputs are a bit stuff and you'll have to push pretty hard to plug something in

2 out of 5 eggsSome Form, Not a Whole Lot of Function

Pros: - It looks alright, and actually looks higher quality than it did in the pictures
- Support for large graphics cards
- USB 3 on front I/O
-External hot swap bay, nice to see on a low end case

Cons: Unfortunately for this case, i have had the experience of building systems in higher end cases as well as lower priced cases from reputable case brands, and this case just does not measure up. To start off, building in this thing is about as close to hell as you can get. To me it seems like cable management was just completely neglected and building a clean looking system in this case is near impossible. Apevia decided that rubber grommets for the cable routing holes just weren't necessary, and in the case of the hole near the cpu power header, didnt think it needed to be big enough to fit an 8 or 4 pin connector through with an ATX board installed. Other things such as the multi-colored front I/O cables as well as the lack of room behind the motherboard tray didnt help with cable clean up either. Also the molex connectors for the fans and power for the front hot swap bay are cheap and terrible making them difficult to plug in and the side panel window, especially with the 200mm fan installed, turns looking at your hardware from the outside a thing best left to imagination.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on building in this case, don't. If you still plan on building in this case, do yourself a favor and get 3 pwm fans and a modular power supply. Things like the hot swap bay and the 200mm side panel fan, which will most likely obstruct large cpu coolers, could have been ditched to clean this thing up a bit. Honestly, spend the extra $20 on a case from a brand such as Cooler Master, Corsair, or NZXT and you wont regret it. You get what you pay for.
