3 out of 5 eggsIt's ok - thin metal

Pros: Lots of features And modular. Places for wire runs, fans, radiators etc. nice metal finish. I like that it's wide too and plenty of room to his cables on the back panel. Looks awesome, and love the front grill and can't forget about the LED on the IO panel! How many time do you get back behind you PC with a flashlight! Not anymore!

Cons: If this case was just one more gauge thicker metal I think the metal is WAY to think for a case. I had trouble with almost every screw, PSU screw, thumb screws for both side panels. The metal is too thin but the case is well constructed. I would have paid another $15 for beefier metal. I've seen cheap $30 cases use thicker metal... But it will do. I bought a computer case 10 years ago from Tiger Direct, I think it's the Ultra brand Dragon model. The case is still kicken! It's a thicker metal case but your trade up that for weight.

Other Thoughts: It's a great case with good construction. The PSU holes were 1-2 mm off and I had to push the case to get the PSU in. The trouble is when buying cases there usually is not enough detail about the metal.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing, just amazing

Pros: this case is amazing. I chose it because its simple yet very functional and customizable. Love the ssd mount on the back, the 10 port fan hub, room for all the fans I have. Cable management is a very simple task.

Cons: I only have two complaints about this case and they are not a big deal. first, the front panel is almost impossible to take off. felt like I was going to break it. luckily, I only had to remove it for the fan installs. also, one of the rubber feet fell off when I moved it. little super glue, problem resolved.

Other Thoughts: if you are looking for a full size, fully customizable case at a great price, get this. the simple look combined with the customizability makes for a amazing, non-frilly, no nonsense case.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it!

Pros: Its got lots of room.
Amazing airflow and you can fit fans everywhere.
The fans that come with it are very quiet too.
Its all black and looks good.
To the touch, it clearly feels sturdy and good materials was used. Its not one of those flimsy cases that bend in every directions.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I keep my case open because im paranoid about my north bridge overheating with my Fatal1ty 990FX Killer. The Case offers a rather big opening behind the board and i like it. It looks cool and makes me believe it helps with the airflow and overheating. I might be wrong though...

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 530

Pros: - Amazing price to quality value.
- Matte black finish looks good
- nice window to see everything.
- Plenty of fans and room for storage drives
- Fits all of my components
- Allows for pretty decent cable management
- Rear light is nice
- Fan filters
- Rear SSD storage

Cons: - Paint can chip easily, so be careful not to scratch the outside with screwdrivers or anything
- The pivotal fan only works with the triple hard drive cage. (I opted to only put one cage in to maximize airflow)
- Front of the case was a little hard to take off initially.
- you have to do some dissasembly to get the bottom fans in place.

Other Thoughts: Amazing price for this case. It'll be hard to find a better case than this at this price.

Can fit my NHd15 CPU cooler easily.

Great airflow with 9 possible case fans.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing case!

Pros: Well its getting 4 stars, it's a great case, easy to build with, great cable management I love the design and the buttons and how easy it was to get started with it.

Cons: I tried to remove a plug from the fan controller and the wires came out with the plastic piece still plugged into the fan controller, I'm not happy about that, it was pretty much glued in there, I moved it for cable management and well that happened. so... now I only have one fan, which is the back one

Other Thoughts: I wish in the manual it would of said what the SATA plug in was for, I was pretty confused for a while about it, until I Figured out it was for the lights for the back when I had put the PSU in.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, lots of expansion

Pros: Lots of room for hard drives. Fits large graphics cards. Fits large radiators. Comes with fan hub. Decent amount of room to hide wires. Looks great.

Cons: HDD light is very bright. No grommets. You can buy these separately, but it seems like a lot of people get kinda stuck up about this kind of stuff. Doesn't effect my performance at all.

Other Thoughts: Only thing I can really recommend is to not wire up the HDD light. My computer sits to the left of me, and the light is pretty bright when it's flashing. I disconnected it and am happy as can be. I have a GTX980 in here as well as a Corsair H100i water cooler that fits just great. I think the included fan hub is amazing, although I'm thinking of replacing it with the grid+ controller, also made by NZXT, to make it a little quieter when able.

5 out of 5 eggsLarge Tower

Pros: Very Much Space.
Hides wires well, you run them through the other side of the case.
Must take off both sides of the case to access the fan hub.
Lots of hard drive bays.

Cons: Docks for HDDS were difficult to figure out (personal problem). I found out that you have to sit the HDDs in backwards meaning when you open up the side of the case with the motherboard facing up, you see the hard drive's back side.
Long enough fan wires to reach the fan hub.

5 out of 5 eggsWay more bang for your buck!

Pros: Plenty of room with a well thought out interior design. Plenty of feasible cable management, plenty of room for everything that you'll need. More than needed bay drives. Great air-flow for all components. I'll easily buy this case again and again as long as they make them.

Cons: None so far.

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.
