5 out of 5 eggsLooks Awsome

Pros: This case looks really good in my office. However if its not in a dark room its almost impossible to read the LED screen without getting up close to it.

Cons: Screen not as bright as needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Styling & Functional Case

Pros: Very pleasing to the eye, looks like a beast in my office at night, frightens my 6 yr old! Very functional, plenty of space for upgrades!

Cons: USB & audio ports on the bottom of the side, would be 100% pleased if they were on the top, but not nearly a deal breaker for me

Other Thoughts: Will buy a NZXT case in the future!

4 out of 5 eggsCool looking

Pros: The case looks cool. I like the temp gauges too!

Cons: The LEDs don't give off enough light. I wanted to be able to see my parts through the side panel, but you cant. Also, it could be a little wider. the side case fan barely fits with my gpu. over all, great case

Other Thoughts: I like it!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent entry level

Pros: It's a case! It does everything it says it will and well!

Cons: Very troublesome to cable manage with the case. Also not a fan of the door, of course that is my fault though for ordering a case with a door!

Other Thoughts: Not sure if I will go with NZXT again after this one.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall a well built case.

Pros: Beautiful design, Bottom PSU for more stability. Good cable management, good stock fans (I don't normally say this either). I was well impressed with the quality of this case in using new things I've never used before like the locking tabs and a bottom mounted PSU. The thermal probes were also new to me but easily installed once i looked it up. I have to say I am very impressed with this case and adding a 140mm fan to the roof just makes it even more cooling efficient.

Cons: Rear slot locking tabs cheaply constructed. Two broke off when the right amount of pressure was added to unlock them and 2 popped out of the hole and had to be put back in. Not every drive will fit and work with the drivebay locking system. I have to change Multicard readers now because of this and that's an added expensive I didn't need.

Other Thoughts: There's one other added cost here and it was my fault for not paying attention. With a roof fan installed and my motherboard mounted up top, I had to dump my monster Hyper N520 CPU Cooler. It wouldn't clear a roof fan. Thankfully I found a cheaper smaller one that's just as efficient. Overall I was very impressed with this case. Even though I didn't buy it from newegg, I wanted to add this review because this is one of the premiere sites for pc parts. Overall I'm 100 percent happy with this. The locking tab issues in the con section is what keeps me from giving it a perfect score. But 4 eggs is not bad for a case that made me perfectly happy.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, poor instructions

Pros: - Comes with fans preinstalled
- Looks really nice with all the LEDs going
- Plenty of room
- Very sleek

Cons: - Horrible instructions. Almost all pictures, almost no text. No instructions on installing leads or liquid cooling.
- The labels for stand offs don't match all ATX boards
- Really wish there was some room for hiding cables
- No USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: Could be a bit better design, but for the price quite nice. Would not recommend for a novice because of poor instructions. Looks pretty good with all the fans going.

Other Thoughts: Still an overall great case

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Alot of room. Backlighiting is very cool. The amount of fans keeps everything really cool inside.

Cons: It doesn't really tell you how to hook up the temperature leads but I was able to figure out where to place the HDD and the SYS but the CPU doesn't specify. I thought about placing it between the CPU and heatsink, however after researching I found that it was not recommended. So for the CPU temperature it constantly shows error so that's why I removed one egg.

Other Thoughts: Great case for the price. Absolutely recommend it.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: cool look, fairly spacious, mostly metal.

Cons: really cheap molex case fan connectors. Somehow all the other case components that use molex for power (display light, etc.) are fine, but the case fans' molex adapters are junk, they pulled out of the plastic casing after 4-5 changes. And i wasn't being violent with it. I know molex is like that, but this is crazy. I either have to superglue them back in or buy a couple new ones (had to solder one back together already).
