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.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Case

Pros: The case comes with many fans that worked off jump. When I put the computer together I and seen those neon light bright up i was quite pleased. This case is amazing and huge. I placed a 7950 in it, and it still has room for another.

Cons: The case has the worst wires in the world it took me 10 mins to get them to hook up. But don't let that stop you from buying this awesome case. At the end of the day i linked up all the fans and its working with powerful airflow.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case for the money

Pros: A nice, beautiful case and has 5 fans, plenty enough to cool down every component in it. Love the blue LED light on the side and looks awesome when it it is on at night.

Cons: HD audio cable is too short, and doesn't reach. Would've been nice if it was longer.

Other Thoughts: Built my first rig ever with this case, and I am glad I made the decision of buying this case. I can see myself still using this case over and over for future builds as long as it still works by then.

Manufacturer Response:

You can extend the audio cable length about an inch or so by clipping the tie holding it to the case body. Just remove the other (non-window) side panel and cut it. It should fit then.

4 out of 5 eggsApevia X-Hermes Case

Pros: Solid case with lots of room and great cable management.
All of my components fit in very easily with no problems whatsoever.
The fans keep everything frosty and are surprisingly quiet.

Cons: The plugs for the fans are very cheap and the pins move around quite a bit making it difficult to get them plugged in.
The LED fan on the side panel didn't work.

Other Thoughts: I've done TV and computer repair for a number of years,but this was my first build and it couldn't have gone better. The only reason i docked an egg was for the poorly made fan plugs and the side panel fan being dead. Upon looking into the dead fan i noticed the power wires were broken on the circuit board solder point. To my knowledge I never pulled on the wires as it was the last thing to get connected, but it's possible that it could have gotten pulled during the build. I just soldered the wires back down and she took off without further issues. Other than that i would definitely recommend getting this case as it is very easy to work with, has tons of room for anything you wish to put in it, and looks amazing when its up and running.

3 out of 5 eggsOk, Not great, not bad

Pros: Inexpensive ... kind of
Very Lightweight
Pretty design. Looks good to my Brother (who wanted it)

Cons: Fans are all molex (I knew this) and the others reviews about the CHEAP molex are spot on... Terrible connectors.
HD Audio wire IS too short... had to route across everything and cut the zip ties that were pre-secured to get it to reach the MoBo pins.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy 3pin fans to replace these, but then that would technically increase the cost of the case by more than the cases value. The Fans are NOT a bonus IMO replacing 5 fans would of cost ~ $50... almost the price of the case itself.

HDD LED strip is not as bright, and would of looked better if it was not the HDD light. If it was always on like the left side the case would look parallel and uniform and a lot better than having one side of the LED strips blinking (faintly) and one side steady on.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic case for the money!

Pros: Beautiful, sleek case! Large enough to fit most components with ease, while not being an absolute behemoth. Very easy to install components into, and the HD slots, combined with the locking brackets that come with, are quite convenient! There is a place at the bottom of the case to install an SSD directly to the bottom, if desired. The 5 built in fans keep everything nice and cool.

Cons: The fans were a bit confusing for me at first, but its as simple as daisy chaining them together, and then hooking the last one up to you PSU. I believe I was over thinking it, haha. Other than that, no cons whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: I recently built a gaming rig, and this case worked perfectly for my build. It has plenty of space, plenty of room for breathing, and still fits all the components nice a clean. I would definitely recommend this case! Everything in my build fits perfectly.

Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK
CPU: Intel i7-3770k Ivy Bridge @ 4.2GHz (OC)
Memory: 8GB G-Skill Sniper 2400
Drive 1: Team L3 SSD 120GB
Drive 2: Seagate SV35.6 1TB @ 7200RPM
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 @1397MHz core / 7160MHz memory (OC)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: It has so many fans (no pun intended). Opens from both sides and has a shield which allows for better wire management. Installations easy.

Cons: I can't think of any right now.
