4 out of 5 eggsNice looking case

Pros: Cool Design.
Lights and translucent side makes it easy to see the inside of your pc.
Magnet door on front of case is fairly durable.
Displayed CPU HDD and SYS temperatures make for easy monitoring of temp on pc.
Temps can be displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Cons: Tabs on the hard drive slots on back of pc break off easily.
Case is fairly small for a mid size tower.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend for a smaller build, can be frustrating to fit decent parts.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case! Looks Cool!

Pros: I like where the front peripheral connectors are located. This case is a nice mid tower case. The airflow is great. I built this rig for a boy for christmas and he loved it and all his friends are jealous! It was pretty easy getting everything set up in this case!

Cons: I am not a fan of the Temperature gauges, they give false errors now and then. It could throw someone off who is a newb if not told about them. The standoffs for the motherboard were cheap and striped a little on install and I am gentle.

Other Thoughts: Yes, if you want a cool looking case that is nice quality for the price buy it. I would use this case again.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful case

Pros: Love this case the lights are fun but not overkill.
The temperature gauges are a nice touch.
Used this for a friends build and all the fans and devices are still going strong 2+ years.

Cons: Like with all cases beware sharp edges happens to me every time ill go to grab it to flip it on its side and it cuts me.

Other Thoughts: Not to big but plenty of room would recommend to anyone who wants a smallish gaming tower!

4 out of 5 eggsSome problems but good

Pros: Fits all my hardware and still looks clean and well kept.

Cons: To clean the case both sides have to be removed to get the fan unplugged. Then the side for the cable management is a pain to put back on due to not wanting to fit over my power cable.

Other Thoughts: it's a nice case I'm happy with it and have upgraded my hardware a lot since I got it back in 2014. I just wish the cable management was better.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT CASE

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: This case is great! 2 r9 380s fit in there just fine, everything was easy to install and not confusing at all.

Cons: Was difficult to fit the cables on the side label behind motherboard, but I got most of them, still an amazing and sexy case. It also wasn't as bright inside as I hoped but LED strips are dirt cheap.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: front LED temp readings for CPU, HDD & System; 2x120mm fans included, visible door

Cons: not enough clearance for my GTX 970 strix in PCI E 3.0 slot (only fits in 2.0 slot) - minus one egg for not stating this in specs/details

Other Thoughts: If you have a video card over 11", consider another case. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

I use this for my plex media server (it was intended for my gaming rig but see my statement in cons, so I replaced an old Ultra case that was about 6 years old) with the following:

Asus P5QL-Pro
Intel q8200
Asus nVidia GT 610
Mushkin "Chronos" 60GB SSD
osx 10.10.5
5GB OCZ DDR2 1066
WD 3TB SSD
Antec 450w (waiting for Black Friday to get PSU, as 450w is not enough)
