3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice look, compact size. cool LED on each sides

Cons: not enough space to work with. all the components are tight in there

2 out of 5 eggsExcellent idea but poor implementation

Pros: The case is great looking once I put every blue led device I could fit in it. I like how much you can fit in it. The extra ports are not behind the door. A great price with the discounts on the Black/Blue Led unit.

Cons: Multiple problems:

One of the screws for the side panel was pinned down by the side panel and I had to torque the case and carefully pull it out. I stripped the very soft screw pulling it out.

The hard drives have to be pulled to remove the devices out of the 5.25" bays and the hard drive bay screws are difficult on the bottom side due to clearance. These should all have been tool-less based on the compact design. BTW, the whole case is not that compact. It is a lot bigger than it appears in the pictures.

If you have a tall CPU cooler, you have to remove it to pull out the hard drives on the right side.

All of the pictures show the side fans as having blue led's but only the rear fan has them. The side that does not have the filters needs washers for the fans to be snug.

The door feels like an afterthought. It should have been cushioned with a positive eject instead of a magnetic latch. The old school lock mechanism feels out of place.

Other Thoughts: This review is for the Black/Blue led unit. This could have been a fantastic case with a little more effort. If you have a lot of components, the cabling starts to crowd the inside and with the way the side panels work, it would be difficult to place a lot of wire guides.

I replaced the 2 stock side fans with blue led units and added 2 more. I thought of using red led fans for the exhaust side but I kept the blue motif. I have 37 useless blue led's in the case but it sure is pretty. The window on top is not that big and half of what you see through it is the power supply. The power and reset buttons are not marked but the power button is the bigger of the 2. It would have been better if the top section of the back panel (where the rear fan is) slid out with the motherboard. This would make it easier to install a large cooler. The Gigabyte Rocket 2 was very difficult to install once inside the case. I would imagine this to be the case with any clip in cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Looking, but...

Pros: The Case looks great, is rock-solid, and has lots of extra space for air circulation.

Cons: Wire-routing is a bit of a problem, and the slots for the mobo tray don't accomodate my GPU, so I have to remove my PSU AND my GPU to modify any thing on my mobo. Also, said GPU blocks the case-fan airflow, which meant I had to go out and get two more for the other slots. I probably would have done this regardless, but...

3 out of 5 eggsReally Heavy Humungo mATX case

Pros: Solid, well built case. Lots of room for everything inside. Great finish on aluminum and steel parts.

Fan filters on intake fans keep the inside pretty dust-free. (For those who wonder, the reason there are only 2 filters is because only 2 of the fans are supposed to be intake.)

Cons: This thing is really big, and heavy. There is way too much empty interior space that is not used efficiently. It could shrink by 30% and still be effectively cooled.

This case is DEFINITELY not for those who like to tinker with their parts. Installing hard drives is an ordeal that either involves taking the front panel off (4 philips and 2 slotted screws, then 4 more philips before you get to the actual hard drives) or maneuvering a tiny screwdriver in a 4 inch space. The hard drive bays aren't even the right size for 3.5" hard drives and the metal flexes if you try to tighten mounting screws. On top of all that, you can't touch the optical drives once the hard drives are in, and hard drives don't get ANY AIRFLOW.

Clearance for motherboard tray is not enough to install large graphics cards. My GTX 285 would not slide in, so I had to squeeze it in under the obstructions around the card brackets, after the motherboard was already in (It's not drop-down installation.)

Other Thoughts: If you're thinking about buying this case because "it's mATX and it can't possibly be that big", you're wrong. It's huge, and heavier than a full tower aluminum case that I just replaced. I made the mistake of thinking that it wouldn't be bigger than any other mATX case like the Qpack.

I change out parts a lot, and the way the case is set up is very annoying. It is really frustrating to get to the hard drives, since you have to take the side panels off (but your fan wires are all still connected,) and obviously it is nearly impossible to do anything to the motherboard with the PSU right above it. My Caviar blacks are running uncomfortably hot because the hard drive cages are not near any fans.

Bottom line: well built case that might be worth the discounted price but has serious design flaws that make it not worth full price.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh...

Pros: I've built plenty of LAN boxes for friends & customers & this case has the best design/layout of all I've used *theremal take, apevia, lian-li etc* Provides tons of airflow (if needed), allows for water cooling internally and can handle the larger video cards & psus. Price is quite affordable when compared to others in it's class.

Cons: The craftsmanship is shoddy at best ***Thumbscrews are smaller than standard (stripped threads after 2 uses)***screw holes don't all match up on panel & chassis***panel vibrate, required application of sound sound dampening material to certain spots.

Other Thoughts: The cons are not enough to steer me away from buying again, however just stating the facts. I'm not opposed to customizing and modding, but when it's for "basic" functionality it really annoys me. All those things aside, I have a Q6600 @ 3.6GHz on a DFI P45 LP Jr. (North-Q Siberian Tiger cooling) w/ 2 ATI 4870's Crossfired powered by a PCP&C 750 Silencer just to play WoW....(I get 80fps in Dalaran....what's wrong with me)?

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome MATX case

Pros: Lots of room, excellent cooling, quiet, very sturdy, attractive, durable finish, great price. Can fit a Xigmatek Dark Knight CPU cooler in it sideways. A normal or oversized power supply will fit with the supplied adapter

Cons: Drive chassis is not removable. Would be 5 stars if it wasn't for this. The hard drives block the mounting screws for optical drives, hard drives mount vertically so it is hard to install the bottom 2 screws, heavy, easily damaged in shipping. I wish Newegg would start double boxing cases. I have been able to fix 2 damaged cases I have ordered so far but it's getting old.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case! The silver finish is apparently more durable than the black (though not as popular), as I have read in other reviews that the black scratches easily. Not so with the silver. And the silver is cheaper! I wanted to assemble an MATX case with a Core I7 processor, but also wanted to use an effective after market cooler. This is the only MATX case that I found that can do it. Specifically, the Dark Knight cooler. As long as you mount it so the fan draws air from the side vent, it works great. Otherwise the power suppy will not fit. Comes with a nice carrying strap, but it is a heavy case. Fans are quiet but not PWM, so I am replacing them. Hard to find silver drives anymore, so I had to special order one. I used a Lian Li silver aluminum card reader and temperature / fan control bay, and they look like they were made for it. I would buy this case again.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small size, loads of fans, quiet. Enough space to for a high power pc. And the mother board tray is genius.

Cons: Small size, BAREly enough room for a high power pc. If you plan to use a powerful gpu, you may not have the room to do so.

Other Thoughts: The mother board tray is awesome, but it can be problematic. Pulling out and pushing in the mother board tray will sometimes stick.

4 out of 5 eggsBe sure you like brushed AL

Pros: Very good build quality, excellent airflow, solid piece with unique looks. Removable mobo tray, sides are removable for access to build and to ease cable management. Lots of space inside for a serious build.

Cons: LARGE for a cube, NOT a good HTPC choice, more for a gaming rig. Barn-size front makes the optical drives look freakishly small. This is ALOT of brushed aluminum, be sure you like it. Lots of screws to remove to gain access. Only 2 side fans, and they aren't LED. NOT for the ham-handed or those who don't like screws or taking things apart.

Other Thoughts: Added neons to get a decent interior glow. You'll need 2 more 120mm fans to make the side holes balance the light. Honestly better to get 4 120mm LED fans for the best appearance. Should have been included IMO.

3 out of 5 eggsDifficult to judge: good case with lots of flaws and frustrating build

Pros: Looks really cool after it's all done and assembled and I got hot shower and good night sleep. Good cooling for the size (i7 940, 2xGTX285SLI, two Velociraptors), no heat problems. I wanted something different for my GameBox and this works out nicely. But...

Cons: Eh, where to start? This case needs some serious revisions and could be killer case. The form factor makes things harder, but it could use some improvements. What the person before me said is true: the tray opening is tight, makes sliding two cards a slow and irritating experience, long power supply creates problems (the case needs to be simply deeper (longer?) or have more extruding extension. Once PS is installed you have no access to anything inside. A long power supply and two large video cards require removal of one hard drive cages to really get proper cable runs. You can't have a large cooler like 120 Extreme or TRUE with two fans, one will be in the power supply's way. Once the case is disassembled it doesn't feel the same after re-assembling: the side panels and top cover don't align well any more. The opening in the mobo tray is the wrong size/position, you can't insert i7 backside bracket without unscrewing the mobo first. The power button gets stuck:(

Other Thoughts: Not a con, but I'd prefer two 12cm fans in the top rather than the window - I'll probably mod it some time. I got this for $69 ($90 shipped), so I'm keeping it, but if I paid $150+SH for this I'd be upset. Basically the designers need to stuff it with the largest hardware and make some changes. I bought it mainly for looks, and the final result is good. In the end it fits two GTX285s, oversized power supply, big heatsink with one 12cm fan, the HDs and DVD drive. But this was THE most frustrating build ever. Oh, I removed all fans and mounted quiet ones without LEDs in all possible mounts: two on either side and one on the back.

2 out of 5 eggsHigh hopes dashed

Pros: It looks good(opinion), it cools good for such a tightly packed unit, it's solid, well built from heavy metal.

Cons: The position of the power supply really interferes with working on the pc or putting anything in a pci slot. Problem is design flaw. The did not compensate for the size of nvidia and ati video cards at all. The motherboard try is supposed to slide out so you can add stuff nice and easy. It's a big fail. area is too small for the vid card to fit through, so ya gotta take out psu, and spend like an hour trying to position the whole tray JUST SO, so that you can fit a ati/nvidia card in it. To get it out, same deal. To put in any other pci card... same deal. I have had to do this 2 times now. If you are buying this case. You probably want to put everything in it at once, and not upgrade any time soon. Frustrating case to work with. IF NZXT had simply raised the psu up a little and cut the rear hole where the mb/tray slides out the back bigger... well, this could have been a 5 egg review.

Other Thoughts: Buy an Antec 900 when you can find it for 80 or less. I have that also, and it is so nice to work on.
