5 out of 5 eggsMmmmmmmm

Pros: It looks pretty sweet and I like it very much because i put the SSD in the secret place behind the motherboard. Everything is very good inside. There is something inside to hold the fan but it is only attached to the triple Hard Drive/SSD holder(not sure of the name of those holders), so im not using that one but there are a lot of places to put the fans(up to 9 or so).

Cons: one foot wiggles but probably because of the bad shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for the bucks!

Pros: This is a high quality case, especially for the $89.99 pricetag. Really easy to work in, no sharp edges. Loved how the case is factory configured for ATX with no need to add standoffs, and the factory included fans are enough to keep my stuff cool. Probably would add a couple if I was beating it to death with hardcore gaming, but I'm not, so it's purring like a kitten. Loved the little 2.5" SSD mount on behind the mobo backplane, saves me from wasting a 3.5" tray on an SSD. It was easy to run my PSU cables where ever I needed them. Also, the simplicity of this case's appearance is a plus! I don't need any crazy bells and whistles to find a case attractive. This thing is like a huge monolith on my desk, which is great!

Cons: Black PSU cables on matte-black case are hard to see, but I probably should get my eyes checked, lol. No real cons, this thing is a champ!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Very spacious, I was able to fit everything well and keep everything clean. USB 3.0 front panel

Cons: Front Panel audio doesn't seem to work correctly.
Having it connected to the motherboard, it disables my rear speakers for some reason.
When connected, plugging in headphones the sound is distorted.
I see other people having issues with their front Panel audio in the reviews.

Other Thoughts: Great Case aside from the front panel issue.

Pros: -Plenty of room inside of case
-Lots of fan support
-Lots of HDD/SSD cages

Cons: -The case is relatively large.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to upgrade your PC in the future, and you don't want to worry about any sort of size restriction, go with this case. This is one of the best cases in it's price range.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 530 CA-SO530-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice room inside case. Works with a 240mm radiator but just 2 120mm fans and not 4 120mm fans on radiator. So you can not have a push pull system on the radiator. Not enough room.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Remarkably well built and laid out. Lots of modularity to the internals. Lots of places to place fans.

Can fit a standard to slim 360 radiator on the roof and if you remove all of the hdd cages and mount a single SSD behind the motherboard tray you can fit a 240mm radiator in the front. It is possible to lay a 240mm radiator on the floor of the case, but my psu was too long (7.5") and it wouldn't fit that way.

Paint is acceptable if a bit prone to scratching.

The large side window is quite good if you like that sort of thing.

The included fan splitter is a sneaky good addition. Given that you could mount 8 total fans (9 if you include the directional internal fan) to the case this seems like a wonderful inclusion for somebody that either wanted a well cooled pc or a silent one with lots of slow moving fans.

Cable management behind the motherboard tray is a breeze with plenty of room to tuck cables away out of sight and not in the patch of air flow. I had no issues getting the side panel back on after wiring 7 fans, 2 video cards, SSD, and all the other basics and hid all cables as best I could behind the tray.

Excellent access to all of the filters for intake. Should make cleaning them a breeze. Rear one for the PSU is the only bad one and I would have to remove my PC entirely from under my desk to get it.

Overall the quality is top notch for its price and I am not disapointed with my purchase.

Cons: These are truly minor and don't let the dissuade from getting a top notch case for a great price.

No rubber grommets around cable management holes. I ordered the set from NZXT to solve this, but 5 for the grommets, and another 5 for shipping. My desire to keep things looking clean cost me 10 bucks. Worth it but had to order from another site.

Front panel IO leads for the LED's isn't well marked and my poor eyesite had a hard time determining positive and negative on the leads.

Paint does chip and scratch, have a couple already from where the screwdriver slipped mounting chassis fans.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good case, and if you're willing to be a bit creative can hold quite a lot of radiator space internally if you're into water cooling. The included fan splitter is really nice and can help if you run out of leads from the motherboard to at least provide power to a few more fans, obviously fan control becomes an issue but thats why inline voltage reducers exist. The rear IO light while neat isn't a huge selling point for me but for those that like it well enjoy.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case value I have seen

Pros: Classy lines without the flash and flair found elsewhere
Good cable management behind try
Modular drive cages allow your imagination to run wild when putting unit together.
Great cooling options, have several locations where you can mount radiators and fans to fit just about any system you have in mind.
i/o panel led is great option.

Cons: no grommets on the cable management in compartment
included fans not led fans.
fan hub allows no speed control on the fans.

Other Thoughts: I had gotten this on sale and finally got around to moving out of my existing mid-tower. I like the layout and configuration, makes outfitting case easy. Put h100i on top with ease and plenty of clearance to mobo with 1 set of fans.

If you are looking for a functional and pretty darn understated case to put your next build in, this one offers great bang for the buck

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case from what I had.

Pros: Very spacious, Customizable, Dust filters, and many spots for fans/blocks.

Cons: Fan hub runs every single fan 100% had to order 2 nzxt fan controllers to run every fan I have. Not really a con I guess, just not enough research.
