4 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: It is a very good size for those who want to build a gaming rig, but not for those who want intensely fast rigs (ie. SLI video cards, 3.0+ghz processors, 4+gb RAM)

For those who want the medium to lower high end products, this case is fine. The power supply can support a 8800GT video card as long as your processor is 65 watts or less.

The handle is pretty strong and it doesn't feel flimsy at all

Cons: 400 watt PSU can be on the light side for those who want big rigs, but then again, if you want a big rig, go for a full tower instead of a mid tower size case.

The LEDs are VERY bright in the front. With a internet chord in the back glowing green a little, the red side case fan, and the front blue/red LEDs, this thing is very colorful, and almost a little to excessive.

Other Thoughts: it keeps my CPU (AMD x2 4800+ stock: 2.5Ghz, overclocked 2.79Ghz) very cool (24-31 while idle, 42 under stress tests) with good air flow. The side case fan spins around 3200RPM. I kept my foot down there and it froze my feet haha. If your looking for something above medium range, but not high end price tag, this is fine.

4 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: its pretty, the grip is pretty solid, I carried it up and down the stairs with no problem at all, didn't feel weak or shaky. The lights look nice.

Cons: the lights are pretty bright haha, good luck falling asleep with those lights on.

Other Thoughts: pretty good air flow, I'm running a AMD X2 4800 @ 2.5ghz, 2G RAM, BIOSTAR MOBO, and about to install a nvidia 8600gt video card. With all these things in there, my CPU runs at 27-31 and 40-45 when under stress. the case is solid and has a good amount of room to work in

5 out of 5 eggsi hate it but i love it, here is why

Pros: ok, this thing is great for the low low price. i couldn't ask for more at this price.seriously. Fits my ATX mobo the PSU is giving me the power it should be on on voltage levels. I really like the air flow, i took out the front leds and customized a filter (also did the same with the front USB&Audio hookups, they were not needed So I put a 120mm fan up front as an intake, the side fan being an intake blows on my 4 gigs of OCZ platinum ram, then my Freezer 64 takes all that and blows it out the back 2x80mm exhaust fans. great air flow for such a cheap case.
This thing is not even as bad looking as it might be in the picture, the front (silver?) does not stick out(or appear ugly) like I believe the pictures make it look. they are not bad looking, right now my x2 5600+ is running at 23C... might be due to my room being chilly lol if your like me and read all reviews of a product before you buy it, just take my word on it if you want a clear sided case in this price range this it is!

Cons: well i dont know if it was my fault or not but i took it out of the box it came in and gently tested the handle and it seemed sturdy. I packed it back in the box for later use when i unpacked it I pulled on the top handle to get it out of the box and it must have been stuck because the top pulled off. I haven't got around to fixing it yet (plastic epoxy) but now it just sits there waiting to be yanked off again. I'm thinking I can fix this and make it stronger than it was originally anyways, its not a big deal my case is stationary.

Other Thoughts: I did not have a problem with the LEDS or USB & audio on the front of the case I removed them for the solo reason to increase air flow from the 120mm fan. The 120mm fan blows back onto my 8600gt XXX video card & it has a PCI exhaust blower right below them. (will be getting another 8600gt xxx, along with modular PSU next order)

I am slightly surprised that the case PSU is still working, I say that with a hard swallow because I haven't got around to ordering the modular PSU I wanted yet, but im only using 1 optical and 1 HD currently.

Ga-ma57sli-s4 MOBO, Athlon64 x2 5600+ (2.8stock), Artic Cooling Freezer 64 on the Proc, 4x1gb OCZ platinum (4-4-4-11), XFX 8600gt XXX.

Also I couldn't see anyone SERIOUSLY complaining about anything with this case, if your looking for one in this price range, U are going to want one that keeps your stuff cool, and looks very well doing it. I personally would buy this again, so I recommend it to you if your reading these reviews.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good product. Really cool looking, even though its a Mid Tower it has room for almost everything. It says it comes with 400w psu mine came with 450w. Very cheap!!

Cons: Replace the power unit that comes with it not to much of use and buy a better one.

Other Thoughts: Quad Core Q6600, EVGA NVIDIA 8600 GT, 4GB Patriot, 500 GB Samsung, Upgrading the psu to 950w Rosewell.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall its decent.

Pros: For the price it's a good case if you go by the saying of "You get what you pay for." Nice looking side window, love the black/silver comboniation. LED's were bright (when they worked). Cooling potential is great!

Cons: To start off with this case is not the strongest metal available. It can bend easy if its bumped into hard enough or knocked over if its under your desk on the floor. I've had this case for roughly 2 years and in that time I have had to unhook the LED lights on the front. After about 4 months The LED's starting flashing and eventualy went out. The grill is made of plastic and can break easy if to much force is applied when opening. The power supply was junk and was trashed after about 4 months. That was with using a cheap-o board and a 3200+ 32bit AMD Athlon and a 9600xt ASUS video. If you plan traveling with this case to LAN events and uch the handle will not hold up to constatntly being used. I have had to replace some of the screws in the case on the top part.

Other Thoughts: An idea I have for anyone wanting more cooling for this case. **May Void Warranty** The top handle has gridss in it for ventelation but none on the inside of the case. If you remove the handle part and either drill some holes or put a blow hol in with a fan it can REALLY pull some heat out of the case and since its under the grids, you don't really have to worry about things falling in it. Oh yeah, and NEWEGG ROCKS!!!

1 out of 5 eggsNot Good

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: This is one poorly built case and not worth more than $6.99 (shipping included). It only looked good on newegg's web site. Once I took it out of the box and looked at it, I knew I had a piece of junk right then and there. Even the HDD tiny light was hanging out with the other electric wires (must have come out of its poorly constructed slot up on top of the case). The power supply, incidently is also a piece of junk. I can go on and on, buy you catch my drift.

Other Thoughts: I am surprised newegg would even carry an item like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Price/Performance can't be beat. LOVE the top handle. Feels sturdy too. Throw the psu away...seriously, don't even plug it in. Buy some thumb screws.

Cons: Hate red lights...but you don't have to plug 'em in. Had to use a pair of snips to rip apart the front fan grate. When properly tightened the front fan would rub against the metal grate. I only needed to snip out the metal square (about 1" x 1") not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get some extra mobo setting screws...mine did not come with enough for my evga 780i mobo and I hate using those worthless plastic ones.

I put a 120mm fan in the front sucking air into the case, flipped the red side fan so it'd suck air in also and bought 2 back fans to blow air out of the case.

Installed an 8800 gts (g92) 512 and didn't have enough room for my 2 250GB WD drives...had to move 'em down below. So, keep in mind that if you gotta big card you best know how to make some room.

4 out of 5 eggsgonna get what you pay for

Pros: once everything is installed case looks good & did hold all the components (barely)

Cons: fyi i gave this a 4 because i only paid 30.00 for it.
power supply doesn't support pci-e power (need to use 2 power plugs to plug in your video card) --3.5 bays are way too close to the mb & if you install the fan in front of them they actually hang over motherboard.

Other Thoughts: if you are building a budget system feel free to buy this case & be prepared to do some extra work to get the result you want.....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
(when i get paid again i will buy an antec case)
