3 out of 5 eggsDecent case for budget builds, but wobbly feet

Pros: Visually appealing
Comes with two 120 mm (quiet) fans
Re-moveable HDD cage

Cons: Case feet are not even
Below average airflow
Flimsy tool-less HDD mounts

Other Thoughts: One thing to note is that the airflow in this case is not spectacular. The front panel blocks a lot of the air for the front intake fan. You will get a noticeable drop in temperature if you leave the front panel open vs leaving it closed. Furthermore, there is no vent at the top of the case. If you have high end components that run hot, you might want to look elsewhere. Lastly, the rubber feet on this case is uneven, so my case sits wobbly.

4 out of 5 eggsSo good, I bought a second one.

Pros: -Size/Space: Plenty of room for ATX motherboards and Dual Graphics (2x 660 TIs in my case).

-Looks great: Beautiful gloss white color on interior and exterior (Don't care much for the black on the door because I'd prefer all white, but it's not a big deal at all). Frankly, these look like refrigerators.

-Quiet. It certainly does reduce fan, CD/DVD/BR, HDD noise. It's not much, but definitely noticeably quieter.

-No windows or annoying lights, just like a refrigerator. The lights that are on the Power and Reset light are very pleasingly dim and not disturbing yet noticeable when necessary.

-Strong High quality construction: This case is heavy (18 pounds according to shipping) metal and built well. No sharp edges that make you bleed. The door on it also doesn't feel flimsy and it uses magnets instead of a clipping mechanism which would just break over time.

-Sideways hard drive trays: Though this is more common now in many cases, it's still a plus in this one.

-Bonus Hardware: Comes with a myriad of high quality screws that for many configurations.

-The retention system for the 5 1/4 inch bays are actually pretty good. No screws necessary and they hold on to the drive very tight.

Cons: -Does not fit Hyper 212 cooler. It's just slightly too tall and it puts pressure on the case door that I'm not a fan of. Others may think it's okay, but it's not for me. Switching to an all in one H80i liquid cooler. It hasn't come yet, but I see no reason why the H80i shouldn't fit.

-Cable management: Trying to fit all power cables, sata cables, and other IO cables behind the back wall of the case gets very cramped very quickly. When using dual graphics and many hard drives it's almost impossible to put the back cover on. This also can rip at the foam a bit. Also note, depending on the motherboard, the 3 pin fans that come stock on this case might not have enough reach with the way they are mounted and it will require rerouting them which could prove to be difficult especially if you're not familiar with cable routing.

-Missing screws: The first case I got had all of its wonderful screws. The second was missing several standoff screws. Thankfully I keep spares handy so this wasn't an immediate issue for me but it bothers and disappoints me that NZXT would let this slip through.

-Damage: Again, the first case I got was flawless. The second had been bent along the bottom where the power supply sits; it was was bent so much that the power supply could not properly be set. Since I needed this case immediately and couldn't wait to RMA it, I went ahead and pushed very hard on the case and power supply until I could get the screws and screw holes lined up on the power supply. It works, but the back/bottom of the case are visibly malformed. VERY disappointed by this and if I hadn't needed the case immediately, I would have returned this without question. NOTE: This did NOT appear to be due to shipping. The cardboard box and Styrofoam it came in are flawless.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is my favorite case that I've ever gotten. NZXT also makes other really nice cases.

I'm still sad that my one case was not up to par with the first one I got and I wish there was a way to resolve the issue hassle free.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Tool-less drive installation that actually works. Each tray is also properly sized to attach a 2.5" drive. Enough space behind the motherboard tray to run cables. Power supply sits atop a vent, which helps with PSU temperature. Not silent, but very quiet.

Cons: The plastic drive trays feel a little flimsy, but that's probably just because they are very flexible. They can be a pain to insert into the case when they're empty, which really isn't a problem.

Adding additional fans requires special hardware. NZXT doesn't seem to provide a sufficient number of the strange, machine-screw looking things needed to attach two additional fans. I didn't contact support -- they might've sent more if I asked.

Other Thoughts: The front USB header is USB 3.0, and it cannot attach to older USB 2.0 headers on older motherboards.

3 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup and silent, until...

Pros: The case is really neat and easy to setup. Enough room to install the board. Cable management is easy too.
Enough room for HDD-SSD, and dvd drives.
No need for SSD adapter.

Cons: After 6 months, the case fan begin to make noise, kind of vibrating... Try to clean up but nothing change.

This noise is annoying !!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorth It

Pros: Solid construction, good amount of room inside, solid look, spots for 2.5" drives, USB 3.0

Cons: Not sure if the noise dampening is really doing a whole lot, I could be wrong.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case. I'm able to fit a capable graphics card in it, a Corsair liquid cooler (although it's ever-so-slightly a tight fit), and a couple of drives, one 3.5", the other 2.5" along with everything else. I like the door on the front, and I like the looks. The fans inside are quiet. They are comparable to Corsair SP120 quiet fans in terms of noise.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case looks great. It has plenty of room for cable management and managed to fit my CM Hyper 212 Evo. Love the USB 3.0.

Cons: Hard drive bays seem flimsy.

Other Thoughts: This was a great case for my first build and is definitely going to stay with me for many upgrades.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy build. Solid case

Pros: Used it to upgrade an older case. No USB 2.0 ports so had to buy a USB 2.0 / 3.0 adapter cable for my older board. Lots of room for drives although the clips aren't the easiest to use. No dedicated 2.5" SSD slot. The front door is substantial and seemingly magnetically connects with the case at close.

Cons: Maybe not top of the line but with the discount I was happy

3 out of 5 eggsPass and get the cheaper model

Pros: quiet case, padded doors
mostly metal with 8 hard drive bays
CPU rear can be accessed to change heatsinks

Cons: I bought this case because it had 8 drive bays and looked to be a silent model case. However, the design has a few flaws. The biggest issue is the hard drives are accessed from the REAR door of the case. That's not too big a deal, but all the SATA cables and wiring must also go through the rear. It is pretty cramped and there was not much space back there to begin with. There really is no passage designed for cables to the drive area, you really just have to squish them in there and hope the rear door panel stays on.

Other Thoughts: The fan is pretty silent but the front door of the case is just a huge a piece of plastic slapped on in front of the fans. I'm sure this reduces cooling, but again, it is moderately silent. It has little screen dust filters but they are NOT removable. You literally have to open the case and pry the whole front panel off to clean them, why? I don't even know. It comes with 2 large fans that look nice, but there doesnt seem to be any speed controls. The fans are pretty weak and do not push much air so be sure to add a 3rd front fan.

If you need to run alot of hard drives look into a nicer case or something that is hot-swappable. Otherwise, go with the cheaper NZXT model since you can't really access the drives in this one easily and save some money. I also have an antec P182 which is why I bought this but the NZXT is far inferior in quality and accessibility. If you just need a little cheap case the NZXT 210 is probably what you are looking for.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for a high end rig.

Pros: Looks nice, it had good cable management to it. Cheap

Cons: The hard drive mounts do not hold the drive securely. There is a lot of rattling noises coming from it. I wish they had just used screws instead of there slide out tray.
has a lake of air flow to the case. If you getting a high end gpu that puts out a lot of heat. then do not buy this case.

Other Thoughts: the case came with a dent on the back bottom edge next to the power supply. Not a big issue. I was still able to fit the psu in.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case with cable mgmt

Pros: I saw this white case being advertised on sale which caught my attention. After watching the youtube review I was pretty much sold. The sound absorbing material and cable management were all features I liked and my existing case didn't have. Move over Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer is awesome and totally sold me on the product review!

Cons: None for the sale price.
