1 out of 5 eggspretty sure i got a returned case.

Pros: Sturdy. Great cable management. Very compatible.

Cons: I got a returned case.

Other Thoughts: The case is awesome. I love the design and it is very sturdy. It's very easy to work with and cable management is awesome. I have nothing bad to say about the design of this case. However, I have to give it 1 egg, because it was missing the speaker that makes the post beep. I didn't throw anything away, and i triple checked every single bag, box, and container, no speaker. It's missing, and I'm 100% sure of it. So I am concerned I got a returned case.This is my very first experience building a computer. I built the entire thing and was pretty certain nothing went wrong. So i hooked it up to my monitor and turned it on. The fans started spinning and all the LED's lit up, but i got no signal to the monitor. Now, since I dont have that speaker, there is no post beep. I have absolutely no way to know what is wrong with my build. Maybe one of my parts is bad, I realize that. But i have no way of knowing because I don't have an important component that was supposed to come with the case. So, 1 egg for this case.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Case

Pros: Its great case for any practical use whether it be gaming or for the office.
Relatively cheap.
Has a sata port in the front for any optical device that needs it.
Side window makes a great look and blue color sceme makes the case stand out.
Plenty of room for anything you can thing of to put inside.

Cons: Distance between side cover and motherboard side panel is a little small making somewhat difficult to put the panel on.
Front cover can be difficult to take off as it requires some force.
Side window is a little too dark.

Other Thoughts: Case itself is a little small for a midtower, but none theless holds everything I need it to.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case and value

Pros: Very good case with great layout. This brand is and has been coming a long way.

Cons: Only thing I would like to see different is a bit more room on the non window side for sata cables. If you have lots of drives, this can be a challenge. Not sure that any case I have seen solve thats better than another yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: Well constructed, lots of room, 90 degree HDD cages. Wire and foam mesh filters.

Cons: Front cover is hard to remove.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case as a replacement for an old Antec case, who's power button had failed. The amount of room, inside this case is quite good and there are numerous points at which wires can be tied down to.

The only problem that I've encountered is that the front cover is proving to be quite difficult to remove. I've read the instructions and watched the video but can still only get one corner free.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Amazing product for the price. I picked it up on sale for my first PC build. has a nice "cool" factor and never had a problem with ventilation. The fans provided work great and are silent still 18 months later. The hardrive bay light on the front is a very nice touch.

Cons: Cable management was difficult and should be pre-planned but I made due. The front panel isn't the best quality and the audio jack went out around the 6-8 month mark which is why this gets 4 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Great product overall and worth every cent.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty great case

Pros: Really good small mid case, GREAT big window for awesome viewing pleasure, overall good case.

Cons: There's like...almost no cable management. There's just enough to get by but really not that much. The only other thing that ticks me off...the top "hidden" disc bay is cool, but since I have a radiator, it moves the fans forward so there's no room for my dvd drive on the top. I'm fine with that, but the edges of that top bay are you literally can't put anything there.

5 out of 5 eggsThis case is AMAZING!

Pros: I built a computer for my dad and this case looked a bit tacky from the pic but I didn't case because it looked cheap and I've had great experience with NZXT customer support. When I opened the box... WOW. I wish I bought this thing instead of my AZZA Solano. The Hard drive bays are super easy to access and come with a mounting bracket for your SSD if you have one. They give you a bunch of screws and zip ties and all that. NZXT does not cheap out. The case felt very lightweight, but very sturdy as well. No dents or scratches. Oh this case had TONS of room. Clear side panel!

Cons: It could have came with more fans but who doesn't have a few fans lying around.

Other Thoughts: I should have bought 2 or 3 of these at the price. I doubt I will ever see a case of this magnitude for the ultra low price of forty bucks I paid for this. They could get away charging double for this case.

4 out of 5 eggsWell Designed

Pros: Roomy, lightweight, decent window, breathable

Cons: Windows tint a slight bit too dark.

Other Thoughts: With the PSU mounted on the bottom, no more sucking in hot air to just blow out more hot air. It is able to access the cooler air underneath the unit and blow it out back. They hae also turned the 3 1/2 drive bay slots 90 degrees, freeing up room for fans and more importantly large video cards with coolers.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks like it dropped straight out of Tron

Pros: The case's LEDs look absolutely amazing, and catch the attention of everyone who has never seen my computer before immediately. At the same time, they aren't blinding or particularly distracting while the machine is in use.
Built-in fans are quiet and effective.
Plenty of space for my build, wire management worked pretty well.
Clear view port is something I only expect to see in more pricey cases, but somehow this one fit it in without breaking the bank!

Cons: Instructions are downright cryptic in some situations. I'm glad I had no need to remove the front panel during assembly, as the instructions give no help other than "remove the front panel".
Clear panel doesn't feel like the sturdiest thing in the world, but seems good enough.
Cable management to the LED fan was difficult, as it kept getting caught in the CPU fan. In the end, I had to tie it to the CPU power line, and I'll need to cut the zipties if I ever want to remove the side panel completely.
The biggest issue laid in the thumbscrews: they nearly didn't come out. 2 were easy, and unfastened perfectly as they should have. One took a screwdriver and some force to get started. The last one was a complete failure: the screw was not made properly and had a large section in which there were no threads on the screw and was just a large metal bulge. The "screw" was impossible to remove, and eventually had to be torn out with pliers. Thankfully, the case came with a number of extra screws, one of which went into place perfectly in the case.

Other Thoughts: All said and done, this case is of great value, I just got unlucky with the screws. I would highly recommend this to anyone planning their gaming rig, as this case is really sweet.

Asus M5A97 LE MOBO
MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD GPU
Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB HDD
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) RAM
