4 out of 5 eggsDecent product

Comments: It's a decent case, though it has absolutely no wire management features or really any advanced features of any kind. The power supply provided is not very good; only 17A on the 12V rail for a 400W power supply? Uh, no? Air flow would be better with a provided front intake fan; lack of wire management hurts here as well. The looks are interesting at first...if that's what you're going for. It's what I was going for myself, but I quickly got tired of all the flashiness. My system is a little modded (added a top blowhole, replaced all the fans w/ blue LED fans, etc.) One of the best things I would recommend to do is to wire up a switch to turn off the LED eye design. Remember to interrupt the 5V line to the eye since it's basically a 5V LED array...

For the most part, the tool-less features work pretty well, though I definitely recommend tightening down the video card with a screw.

Ultimately though, it's a steel case with a lot of plastic used for the front design. If this is okay with you, then this is a decent low-cost case with exotic looks. In the end though, I got tired of the Lian-Li PC65 is on the way to replace it.
