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.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome case with minor adjustments needed

Pros: -The case included 5 case fans
-Side panel window
-Blue, blue, blue and more blue!!
-Affordable and budget friendly case

Cons: -The case cables were a little short. Even after cutting the zip tie, the front audio cable still ran across the motherboard to reach the socket it goes to.
-If you are using an aftermarket CPU cooler, make sure it is not too tall. I used the Cooler Master 212 EVO and I had to remove the 200mm side fan to be able to accomodate it inside the case
-It did not come with fan filters, I just made some DIY filters using A/C filters

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: - 5 Fans comes with it!
- Nice look, Looks solid
- Blue lighting
- Easy Hard drive clip on
- SSD place

Cons: - For some reason, my ATX MoBo didn't fit every present holes. The most important ones fitted, but I got 2 holes unscrewed
- Lot of fans, can be a little bit noisy sometime, but hey, it cools !
-I bought a GTX 760 GPU, and the wires from PSU to GPU are on the side of the GPU, so case would not close properly, and the wires would block the side fan from working. Had to bend the wires a lot, and attach them in place so they would not jam in the large fan.

Other Thoughts: Great case, great value, for the price, this case is just amazing.
I did not had any issue with wires being too short,
And honestly would buy this case again if I would have another PC to build

5 out of 5 eggsAstounding

Pros: Very nice case, highly well made packaging which i appreciate always in a shipping company. i build computers and this case was a recommendation that i made. i have never used it before and it was honestly a test of faith from the looks and specs given. i was very well taken away by the quality of material, packaging, and space in the system. the fans are sturdy and high quality, there is no loos or moving parts that shouldn't move, the side window is a prefect tint of blue, i simply love this case so far and will do a further review on the overall system.

Cons: right now, none, i will do a later review once i begin the actual build but for now i see absolutely nothign wrong

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a nice sized case that looks good right off and is a really good price, get this.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good for the Price

Pros: Reasonably inexpensive case for what you get. The massive fan in conjunction with the other numerous stock fans provides great cooling for my rig with its i5 haswell (stock cpu fan) and gtx760 (evga 02g-p4-2763-rx) graphics card. Fan noise typically doesn't make much of a difference to me because I almost always have the ceiling fan on in my room, so I never pay attention or notice the sound of the case fans. the cable management was easy to arrange in the case as well (partially due to having a modular power supply).

Cons: Some of the plastic on the front of the case feels kind of cheap, and the button press of the power and reset buttons feels uneven. When I first began using the case, I also noticed that the front I/O panel was sunken in on one side. Remedying this only required me to open the case and press the panel from behind so that it snapped the rest of the way forward into place. Although it was annoying that it wasn't already in its proper place, it was a very minor hassle to fix. I am also having trouble getting the audio ports to work on the front panel. Not sure if the problem is with the mobo or the case, but my bet s on the case.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I think the case is pretty good and looks nice despite some of its shortcomings. It serves its job well in my value gaming rig (<$1000).

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: Lots of fans, roomy, good layout, looks cool, usb 3.0, front bay for a hotswap 2.5 hard drive. you can screw your ssd or 2.5 inch hd to the bottom, no need for an adapter or bracket.

Cons: not a con but be careful of your heat sink. if your heat sink is a tall one, the side panel fan will have to removed and or replaced.

Other Thoughts: i had to take the side fan off because it would not fit w/ my tall heat sink. I just bought another smaller fan. Replaced my fan with a blue led 120mm. or you can buy a lower profile heat sink.
