3 out of 5 eggsOne Awesome Case - One Horrible Flaw.

Pros: This case looks great.
It has lots of nice features; easy to mount HDD, temps readout, nice solid door, nice looks and the list goes on!

Everything worked and still works perfectly fine after a year.

I've had this case in my main build for a while. Watercooling is somewhat easy (too and rear-mounts. It goes hand-in-hand with the NZXT hue and Source.

The case is relatively silent with an h100i inside of it. Stock fans are surprisingly really good!

I thought the door would be a fingerprint magnet due to it's high gloss finish, but it's surprisingly not !

Cons: -Bad cable management (why the 2eggs off)
-No USB 3.0

It's especially important to have a clean looking case when you have such a eye catching windowed side panel..
The cable management will be horrible for you of you don't have a modular poker supply.
Even with a fully modular power supply I had a hard time working things out.. but I always found a way to make it work.



One of the expansion slots retainers broke the first time I removed it! Fortunately I have GPUs installed so it's all good.z

The door became a but noisy but I'm sure I could just oil it down and it'll be fine !

Other Thoughts: It's overall great. You get what you pay for in the construction though. It feels sturdy
It would've been nice to see USB 3.0!

Great mounting solutions and if it wasn't for the cable management, this would be one of the nicest case out there.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case for the price

Pros: Good Price
Good Space you have enough to workaround
Its a Mid-Size.
Many spaces for fans

Cons: The airflow isnt very good. I am using a AMD A8-6600k and a Cooler Master Evo for the cpu but if you buy this case be ready to buy new fans. Maybe it was just my luck but all the fans that came with the case didnt work i had to replace them all.

Other Thoughts: Overall i would recommend anyone to buy this game for a mid-gaming case and good for the price. Just remember change the fans.

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: looks great. easy on the eyes and has a nice new age look to it
temperature probes for the system, CPU, and HDD
cost less than other competitors
amazing air flow

Cons: the instructions that come with are useless for a first time builder like me. I recommend that this case should not even come with instructions, they were that bad.
the temperature readout went out after two days on mine
the cable management is very tight and almost impossible to fit behind the motherboard

Other Thoughts: accidentally broke some of the extension card retainer tabs trying to put in the graphics card. I would not recommend this case for a fist time builder

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Looks way better in person than pictures.
Comes with 3 fans 2 with blue leds.
Built in temp monitoring for HDD,CPU,SYS thats how they are labeled but you can place them wherever . I have my SYS sensor on my VRMs.
Solid case came with everything working.

Cons: Cable management is terrible it's the reason I knocked an egg off. Had a hard time getting back panel back on as there is pretty much no space behind mobo tray.

PSU screws are silver wish they were black.

Other Thoughts: Ok so there are mixed pictures on here the case I received had all black wiring instead of that horrible multi colored mess shown in the pic which is fantastic especially having the window.

One picture also shows the side audio ports with pink and green colors and one pic shows them as black. The case I received had black audio ports which is great I planned on using a sharpie to make the other ports black my OCD wouldn't have been able to handle that as my case sits up on my desk and I would have constantly stared at them.

Someone stated the temp sensor didn't come with tape. My case did there are several little strips of clear tape for the sensors. Lots of extra hardware screws as well

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case seemed like there was more complicated things than other cases. Not many holes to put your wires in the back, and the instruction manual was very confusing. For people who are just starting to build computers, this will be quite a challenge. But the overall look is amazing.

Cons: Better manual please!! Also, they give you these temp probes without a thermal tape... so I just ended up not using it, which is a bit of a waste.
