5 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck

Pros: For the money this is an outstanding value. Thumb screws, lots of cooling, extra fans, easy in/out. As a builder of literally thousands of PCs this is one of my favs.

Cons: Can't think of any

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Great price, plenty of space for all my components. More drive bays than I know what to do with. Looks great with the mesh front panel.

Cons: Since this Case supports several different Motherboard form factors, you have to manually install the standoffs. This wouldn't be a problem, but the instructions for the MicroATX form factor was way off. I had to mess around and line up several holes manually to get everything locked in properly. Just something to be aware of.

Also, the cables for the included fans are tied up in a manner that would not remotely allow the plugs to reach the headers on my motherboard. I was able to clip the zip tie and route them around the back of my motherboard, but since that was the last thing I did, I had to undo all my work in order to properly do so.

Other Thoughts: Neither of those cons are bad enough to make me drop an egg though. This is a great value case with plenty of room and good style. I just kind of wish I knew those things before starting my build.

4 out of 5 eggsFavorite case so far

Pros: Lots of room to put in many fans/watercoolers. Easy cable management and is flat black so I can paint my own graphics on it.

Cons: No side panel window.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Multiple fan support for great air-flow. Includes some fans.

Wide enough to fit my mobo + chip and a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO heat sink (just barely).

Enough space to comfortably fit a Radeon HD 7870 video card and hard drives (they fit quite close to one another, though). For fitting a hard drive directly behind the video card I recommend having a 90-degree SATA cable connector for the hard drive. This might prevent putting another hard drive in the slot just below it, but space is a bit of an issue in that situation.
Hard drive bays that are not directly behind the video card should not have any space issues.

Holds sound quite well. No rattling. Included fans are quiet.

At $49.99 I definitely recommend this case for any one who wants a mid-sized case.

Cons: It's a mid-sized case so some cabling can be kind of a pain (but doable).

Don't drop a screw in to the case because it is kind of annoying to get it out ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsWould buy again

Pros: -Good Price
-Easy To Install Parts
-USB 3.0 Available

If your looking for a cheap case that isn't cheaply made this is the one for u.
Has plenty of drive ports along with some nice cable management.

Cons: -Manuel is hard to understand at times
-Took a lot of effort to install motherboard

All and all I could knit pick at a lot of thing but I really do like the look of the case and worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case with room for cable management

Pros: This is a great-looking case. The front mesh looks nice and the white LED power button convinced me to buy white LED fans, and I've never been happier with the way my computer looks.

As far as cooling, this case has room for 2x120mm fans in the front, 2x120mm or 2x140mm fans on top, a 140mm on the bottom, a 120mm or 140mm on the side, and a 120mm on the back. The case comes with 1x140mm on top and 1x120mm in back.

There are also cut-outs for routing cables from your power supply, as well as ample space behind the motherboard to store cables, ensuring good air flow.

Cons: The power button on my case seems VERY flimsy, as in I'm concerned it will fall off because it feels so loose. Hopefully it doesn't...

Other Thoughts: It has a USB 3.0 slot on the front, which my mobo doesn't support.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling

Pros: I found out that with my computer i got from my friend, that i dont need to route a 8 pin to top which is nice for cables, plenty of airflow, fun case to play with user friendly no cutting or scrapping from case, nice paint job, metal side panels are very strong, with a bit of mods could put a 240 radiator in the front with fans inside the front plastic, cant do it for the top unless you do some heavy modding, or use single radiators, front usb works wonders dont have 3.0 for mobo but great for putting a unused usb thumb drive, tool-less design makes great work for the 5.25 inch bays, and 3.5 hard drives, case doesnt come with dust filters but you can use black pantie legging, i know it doesnt sound right but it does catch dust and air passes through pretty good, lots of zip tie points, on the front bessel can remove the metal mesh if you wanted to paint it also with the 5.25 bay covers too, all cables are black even case fans i didnt use, looks like if you modded this case you might be able to cut out the top part and install a 360 rad but be warned of clearances with the mobo, overall a very good first case i got from nzxt, my brother got the 530 case and he loves it so much

Cons: now this is the sad part about the case, cable routing is kinda annoying, it allows you to put the 24 pin connector behind the mobo tray but cannot put any other cables above the 24 pin cables, but another downer is that it doesnt support a 240 on the top, i wish the hard drive bays where mounted with screws, power switch feels cheap very cheap, no dust filters, front headphone and mic jacks sound like it came from a gameboy color,

Other Thoughts: nothing really but i would recommend this case for a first time buyer like myself that just got into the computer world, and im a fast learner at technology

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget case

Pros: Very good price for what you get.

Sturdy build quality.

USB 3.0 on the front.

Easy cable management.

A lot of motherboard standoff options.

Quality fans included. Two fans are included and there is room for up to seven.

Tool-less bays work great.

Includes plenty of screws and assorted hardware to make your build easy.

Cons: No rubber seats for the PSU.

Other Thoughts: This case was a joy to work with. My system build went smooth and it looks great. I'd recommend NZXT cases to anyone.

1 out of 5 eggsNot as good as their previous model

Pros: Nice rounded edges. Nothing sharp. lightweight. Well ventilated. Included fans.

Cons: The front mesh grille is NOT removable such as on the NZXT Tempest 210 which is the exact same price. (technically it can be removed. but all the wires are attached to the front panel itself. not just poking thru the panel such as on the 210)

If you like the design just buy the NZXT 210 tempest case instead. Same company. Same price. Better design and much easier to clean and keep clean. The only difference is the front design. And the 210 is a MUCH better design.


Other than that design flaw. Still a good case. the 210 is just much better because of that flaw.

Other Thoughts: Mostly the same design as the NZXT Tempest 210 which i previously ordered and like alot. But i had (wrongly) assumed to be newer... 220 vs 210... This does not seem to be the case.
