4 out of 5 eggsNice Case for $45

Pros: -Nice looking case, i like the see through window

-Came pre built. Not sure how many cases come pre built as this is my first case purchase, but i thought it was great the case was already assembled

-More spacious than i thought. According to pcpartpicker and some other reviews, i would have had to remove the hard drive bays to be able to fit my sapphire vapor x r9 280x. My GPU is 308mm and fit without me having to remove or alter anything, even had plenty of room to spare. So I'm not really sure what other reviews or websites are talking about when they say the clearance is 230mm with the hard drive.

-Price. I was looking for a mid tower under $50

Cons: -Had trouble aligning the holes and getting the screws into place

Other Thoughts: Pretty much my only complaint and only reason I took out a point was cause of the alignment of the holes and screws for the motherboard. I mean, i understand this could also be my own inadequacy to put it all together, who knows. I think there were 9 screws for the mobo, I only put in about 4 or 5, it's still holding it up pretty well so that's good.

Overall I would highly recommend this case, especially if you're looking for one under $50. At first I was going to get the Rosewill Challenger, but apparently it didn't fit my GPU. I heard the NZXT 210 would be able to if you removed the drive bays. Turns out it fit my 308mm GPU without even having to remove them, so that was a plus for me.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: The case is very roomy and spacious. The side panels come off with ease and the amount of bays for upgrades is pretty impressive.

It only comes with one pre-installed fan, but it runs silently and moves an impressive amount of air, my expectations were definitely exceeded.

Sturdy I/O panel and the front buttons and ports are strong as well, I've heard horror stories where they push right into the case as soon as you try to use them.

I spent a couple of weeks just researching cases trying to find the best bang for the buck, and I've certainly found it.

Cons: Not the best cable management, but at least you have some space behind the motherboard tray to hide some wires. Nothing worth docking an egg over.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with this case

Pros: -Ample space
-Lots of 3.5" slots
-5 120mm fan slots
-Nice window
-Plenty of room for cable management
-Easy to take apart and put back together

Cons: -No Intake filters

Other Thoughts: I know for a $45 case, I shouldn't expect the world. That said, this case has exceeded expectations. I would recommend getting some filters to cover your intakes. There's a lot of airflow in this case, so dust will be an issue.

Also, the hard drive cage is riveted in place. It may lead to issues fitting extremely long graphics cards. Make sure to measure, and do your research before trying to cram a 12" or 13" card in there.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product! DO NOT BUY! I REPEAT NEVER BUY!

Pros: NONE!

Cons: It will never ever! For rest of your life it will never let you open the PCIE backplate. Why? Because I don't know why the manufactor of this case glued the screw!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize for the experience with your case, as the screws for the PCI-E covers should come off with ease. With the right tool a Philips screw driver should be able to take off the screws as we do not apply glue to screws themselves. None the less we can assist with a parts replacement or technical support for the case. If you would please visit our website at, Once there you would be able to submit a request or submit any questions you might have we do have a contact number which is +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Simple Case for the Price

Pros: * Super simple cable management
* Clean design
* Nice looks

Cons: I wish the bottom half of the case where the power supply and HDD rack is was covered/seperated like other NZXT cases. It would make this case that much more appealing.

Other Thoughts: Great budget case!

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed!

Pros: 1. Price & Quality: The quality of this case far surpasses that of which you pay. Such a great deal!
2. Size: I was hesitant at first for settling for a mid-tower atx. But I could not pass up the price. I was worried even after my purchase because I have big hands. But this case has plenty of elbow room!
3. NZXT 120mm stock fan: I had planned on buying a 120 mm fan to replace it, but the quality of the stock fan is very impressive. Guess that's a perk of buying a case from a great cooling fan company.
4. Interchangable Fan options: Top can fit 2- 120s or 2-140. The stock 120 fan can be replaced with a 92.
5. Side Panel Window- Many side panel window have a cheap foggy look, This thing is crystal clear and looks great!
6. 2.5 drive at bottom of case/drive bay.
7. 2 year warranty

Cons: 1. Front Panel: The front panel is a bit flemzy. The price cut had to be made somewhere, it's unfortunate that it was made on an area that is removed increasing the chances of it breaking.
2. No front panel USB 3.0- This isn't that big of a deal because I plan on using one of the three 5.25 drive bays as a microsd/usb 3.0.
3. Video Card Size:9.06" (230mm) With Drive Cages 12.99" (330mm) Without Drive Cages. I like my drive cage, and finding a Geo force 760+ or a r9+ under 9" is challenging. They are out there, but not many.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a simple case that looks great and is worth every penny get this. Save time and quit browsing cases, this is the one you want. I would even say most full tower enthusiast could find comfort with the size, especially for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT BUDGET CASE!!

Pros: This case to start out is a simple yet beautiful case. The window on it is very large and the glass is very clear. The cable management was very decent plenty of routing holes and room.

Cons: My biggest con with this case was the lack of grommets in the cable routing holes. Also, I did not care for the drives facing frontward on this case because it lends itself to bad cable management. My only other con is this case only comes with one rear exhaust fan.
