3 out of 5 eggsNZXT Guardian

Pros: The body is actually made of the Steel, except for the front, which is some type of plastic. It's somewhat lightweight, for a mid-tower. Side fan provides some extra breathing room. The expansion slots and HDD bays are very easy to manage, probably one of my favorite styles.

Cons: Well within 3 days of usage, the font LED with temps burned out. The fans are very loud, even at 40%. the front glossy cover and the side panel can are magnets to smudges and scuffs. But that shouldn't be a problem for most people. However, when you flip open the front panel it get very dusty, very fast. Again, this shouldn't be a problem for most people. Last thing, the front two USB ports are very loose, like when i plug in my phone charger the usb hangs out 1/4 the way. It scares me that one accidental bump might break the actual output or input connection. Might just be my model.

Other Thoughts: With these pros and cons listed, well not really listed, is an awesome case if you are just starting out. If you can buy it used or cheaper, go for it.

3 out of 5 eggsOK case

Pros: Nice looking case with good air flow. Price. Able to put all my extra cables into the side of the case. The temperature reading at the top works pretty well depending where you place the sensors.

Cons: It is a bit of a tight fit. I had a HIS IceQ 7950 that fit in there perfect. I then switched to a ASUS 780 and I had to do some case modifications. I also needed to upgrade my CPU heat sink. I decided to go with the Cooler Master EVO 212. It fit in there except I had to cut off the corner of my side fan in order to close the case.

Other Thoughts: If your looking to put in longer GPU cards or add certain CPU heat sinks I would look for a different case that has more room to work with.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This case is completely amazing. Everyone says it has little space; I however, have not had any problems fitting a full size graphics card, HD's, and Disk drives. I have gotten a bunch of compliments on it already. Overall, this case is absolutely sexy for the price, 60 bucks? where can you go wrong?

Cons: The instructions were made for someone who speaks Chinese. In other wards, they were mediocre at best.

Other Thoughts: If you purchase and are wondering what the little plastic tube lined LED looking things marked: CPU, HDD, SYS. Those are the thermometers, put them as close as you can to the designated hardware.

2 out of 5 eggsNot for the money

Pros: This case has a cool concept. Good looking case reminded me of a flux capacitor from back to the future that's mostly why I got it.

Cons: 1st- The blue LED fried up in the first 6 months.
2nd- If you are looking for a case that has good cord management this is not the case for you. The only way this case could have good cord management is if you own a modular power supply.
3rd- Hard to go back into it and manage your hard drive and work on it.
4th- the most exciting thing about this case burned out on me in the first year which was the temperature gauge on the front stopped working in the first year.
Overall wasnt a big fan of the case its cool but not reliable. One last thing is that its a dust monster it collects so much dust had to clean it every week. Ive never really had issues with NZXT but this is one of the few cases from this manufacturer that you dont want.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a lot of room

Pros: -Looks amazing
-Blue LED's everywhere
-Temperature Gage on front

Cons: Not enough room. Adding a water cooler was very difficult due to lack of space. MAKE SURE YOUR GRAPHICS CARD FITS!!! I bought an 11.5" graphics card and it does not fit inside the case. The biggest you should get for this case is a 10". I have to return my case and get one that supports a big graphics card

Other Thoughts: None
