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.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful case

Pros: The case is a sleek beautiful design, the stock fan placements help keep my current build under 50C under work load, the built in thermal sensors are a blessing because I can monitor my temp to make sure it's not getting too hot during my weekend long gaming sessions. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants a good case for under $75 without fear of quality because this one is top notch.

Cons: No cons so far the only thing I would make a note of is the front piece that opens up to the drive bays seems a bit cheap but beyond that I have no issue.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: This case is just about one of the best cases you can buy. I currently have a DVD drive and fan controller in the 3.5 bays and a multi-card reader in the 2.5. I also have a Radeon R9 270x Sapphire 4GB in as well. However, I still have plenty of room to hide the cables away, thought I have a sneaking suspicion that if I added too much more it might be a little crowded.

Cons: I deducted one egg for a few reasons. One being that there is no dedicated fan controller, not a huge issue as I bought an NZXT one that matches the case nicely, but still would have been nice. Second, even though it is an ATX mid, it still would be nice to have a little extra space to hide the cables, also the front fan was a little annoying to get out (not too bad though). And lastly, though this is super minor, it would be nice to be able to either change the color of the front lights or to be able to turn them off (preferably both). But you get what you pay for, and all in all, I have no regrets buying this case!

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to buy a case but don't want to drop a whole paycheck on a case, buy this!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case, will leave you desiring more.

Pros: Blue LEDs
Swing out door on front
Options for fan upgrades (large size)
Options for liquid cooling expansion
Attractive side panel

Cons: Attracts dust often
Not much room on the inside for management
Larger GPUs will not fit
Front LEDs will flicker constantly after a few months.

Other Thoughts: For the price that I paid 2 years ago, this case is a decent, average case for a rig. After about 3 months, the front LEDs began flickering on and off, and still do to this day. It's a little cramped on the inside, but that's what I get for buying mid-tower as opposed to full-tower. Great case for your first build.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job but Not Perfect

Pros: + Rather Attractive
+ Blue lighted Fans
+ Fans are really quiet until they get close to max load
+ 3 Location Temperature Display on the Front
+ Tool-less drive bay locks

Cons: - Not much space for cord management
- Side panel behind the tray can be difficult to put on if too many cables routed around the back
- Won't fit really long GPU's
- Not much of a con but the side window is slightly tinted, which makes my LED lights seem less bright. (IMO if you have a side window, its because you like to see the components/aesthetics on the inside, why would a company think its a good idea to make it darker?)

Other Thoughts: I bought the case from a friend who was upgrading his system and never regretted it. Its not perfect but it ultimately does what it needs to and looks rather good while doing it.

I am a stickler for minimal cords and this case if HORRIBLE for cord management. Barely any space in the back once cords start bunching up in the same paths but with some creativity you can hide majority of them. All I had were power cords routed around the back and I needed to apply a good amount of pressure to get the side panel to slide back on.

Other than that, even at full retail price its a good deal as long as you don't mind seeing some of your wires in the main compartment.
