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.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 210 S210-001 with window

Pros: Cheap (when on sale).
cable management is decent for the price point.
lots of space for extra fans and drives.
The window in the side panel is pretty cool, its ABS so nothing too special.

Cons: The steel used in the case construction is a bit flimsy but I found that it stiffened up after it was fully assembled.
The front i/o is a bit on the cheap side, the headphone and mic jacks feel cheap but the USB connectors seem fine other than they are upside down.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap case and that's what I bought and I'm very happy with my decision.
Based on how many hard drives you can put in this thing I'd recommend this to someone building a server/NAS.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: It's a bottom mount PSU which I like. My Sabertooth 990fx fits in nicely and all my components do as well minus my CPU cooler. Seems to be have good ventilation and I love the basic design to it.

Cons: This isn't worthy of taking a star off for buy my Cooler Master 212 evo doesn't entirely fit in this case. I had to drill holes in the plastic window of the side panel because the copper stick out to far, making it unable to close the side panel. But that's not the case's fault! Just so you know if you are planning on using a 212 evo with this case.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great Source 210

Pros: Good Value
Black Interior
Cable management holes
CPU cooler cut out
Tons of fan mounts

Cons: -Thin metal (acceptable for the price)
-3.5" bay slots face front and back of the case instead of side of the case
-No toolless mounting options for HDD. (this was not the case with previouse source 210s)
-Limited AIO water cooler mounting options

Other Thoughts: I've done builds with nearly every model of the source 210. This was my first experience with the side window version. I am satisfied. The source 210 is hard to beat at less than $50. I caught this one on sale for $33, what a steal!

I noted that one review mentioned that you cannot use an AIO water cooling solution. I found this to be partially untrue. I was able to install an H60 on the rear fan mount in a push pull configuration. The side door doesn't quite close perfectly with this setup though. The heat sink extends just millimeters outside the case. You can still get the side panel on and secured with screws however and you can't even tell there is any kind of issue.

Unfortunately you cannot mount an h60 or similar to the top fan mounts as there is not enough clearance between the rad and the motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Mid case that accommodates ATX/MicroATX mobo. Hard drive cage accommodates 8 HDDs (great if using for file server). All the features you truly need if you are building a gaming pc, file server (NAS) or simple workstation.

Cons: Not really a con but it has a window which I don't need. However, if you want to show off the inside of your pc, this will work for you. Not the sturdiest case but sturdy enough as it runs 24/7 NAS with no physical contact.

Other Thoughts: There is nothing flashy about this case. It gets the job done. Simple, clean lines, I needed a new case for the FreeNAS server that I was building. This item caught my eye at local shop because it had 8 internal HDD slots, additional area to mount an SSD at bottom of cage. This gives me plenty of room to grow my system and since it is low power with green and red WD HDDs, I didn't need anything with a large footprint or large amounts of ventilation (though the ventilation in this seems to work fairly well as it accommodates a number of fans which can keep temps pretty low if needed. Also note that if you use this as a gaming PC, this has a full cutout behind the mobo, that will allow you to do maintenance on your CPU without removing your mobo (removing or replacing cpu cooler is easy with this case).

I was mostly sold on the price as I got it on sale for $34 with an additional rebate so it only cost me $24. For this price, I'm actually surprised that I like this little case because I only truly cared about the amount of HDDs it accommodates.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT!

Pros: Very spacious
Up to 6 fans total
GREAT CABLE MANAGEMENT

Cons: Only thing that is a con is my fault. This case was not meant to hold a 240mm radiator on the top. However if you move the radiator slightly over thern it fits perfect!

Other Thoughts: I would buy this case over and over again!

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely get it!

Pros: - a lot of room behind right hand side panel for cable management
- plenty of cut outs for cables
- plenty of room inside for full size gpu cards
- low priced
- mounts for extra fans

Cons: - side window is a bit wobbly when you take the panel off, but not an actual issue
-no external 3'' drive bays for my card reader, but that was in the specs so again, not a big problem

Other Thoughts: i spent $15 to order another 3 LED fans for this case and it lights up beautifully, isn't too loud, and keeps my system cool. in my old case, it ran idle at about 45'C, with the few extra fans in this new case its running about 34'C idle, which in my opinion is an amazing difference . under extreme stress from gaming, it runs at 48'C at most. definitely try this case out, you wont be disappointed.
