5 out of 5 eggsUpdate! Got my new switch!

Pros: Update on my review about the power switch! NZXT mailed me a new switch assembly! Haven't installed it yet, but appreciate the response from the vendor. :)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Also updated the case with two Corsair AF120 Case Fans with white LEDs in the front. Can see them just fine behind the filter and puts out a nice white glow in the front of the case. Now need another one in the back to match! :)

3 out of 5 eggsGood Case but...

Pros: This case has a lot of room. Very nice case with good paint.

Cons: This case is too big. Doesn't really fit in anything. GPU doesn't fit too well. I had to remove some of the external drive bays. The front of case is very hard to take apart and put back together. Thought I was going to break something.

Other Thoughts: It is a good case but I would not buy it again.

4 out of 5 eggsExcelent Case!

Pros: The price of the case was decent for a full tower. There is a great deal of room in it, and it is easy to work in. The fan space is more than adequate and the number of fans that came with it is sufficient coupled with a liquid cooler I put in. Which also fit in without any trouble. Combined the machine runs at a level that sitting only 3 feet from it, it causes no distractions.

The 3 screens (two on the bottom and one on the front) are fantastic for cutting down on dust. I just got done cleaning them off because I noticed the fans were getting a bit loud. I pulled the screens off and vacuumed them off, blue out the water cooler and the stock fans are running quiet as can be again.

Cons: A little flimsy feeling. Nothing has happened to it, but it is light and flexes a bit giving the impression it could easily crack or break. This is the only reason I rated it at 4 instead of 5.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with this case. I would have ordered it again, but I got a better case for less money during the cybersales.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case

Pros: Very big, enough space for every necessary part and much more. Many options for fans.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you have/want Gigabyte 970 it will not fit this case right out of the box. You must take out one part of the HDD/SDD slots. Simply removing 2 screws allowed me to fit my Gigabyte 970.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for custom modding!

Pros: Good and inexpensive solid case even after taking it all apart to work on it.
Got room for everything I want to put in it with lots of room to expand.
Removable dust filters in front and bottom for easy cleaning.
Has a single SSD rack at the back of the MB area next to a multi fan power connecter hub.
Comes with 2 RF-FN 122 RB 120mm fans.
Can mount up to 4 rads at the same time (not that you'll need to but) 360 top, 280 front, 120 back & bottom.
Can mount a 200mm fan in front.
Front/side button for LED lights at the back IO panel built in and if you know how to rewire and solder, you can even use to same button to hook up LED lights to the inside of your case with it.
Rubbered feets and PSU stands to lower vibration.
Lots of cable management spots.

Cons: Wish it came in white.
Wish it has a bigger clear panel.
Wish the central fan mount can be detach and be mounted on all the other HDD cages.
The front intake air flow is fine but too many plastic parts behind the metal mesh screen to show off LED fans behind it.
Not made for quad SLI as the back is 1 slot short for it.
No rubber grommets except for the 2 in the back for water cooling.
Almost broke the front panel first time taking it of, for some reason they stuck a small rubber piece inside the right top snap-pin making it hard to pull out but once the rubber is remove it's fine.
The top part of the case (on the clear panel side) the screws was put in at an 10~20 degree off angle and not flush so it's a flaw when built but once the side panel is on you can't even see it so that's ok.

Other Thoughts: What can be done with a great low price case like this you asked? This is a fun case to build with, got all the stander stuffs and more. Square box case can be easily mod with custom parts you and to build for it.
Will build a rack on top of the case so if I ever put my coffee on top it wouldn't spill in it.
Will repaint some of the parts for custom looks.
Might cut the the front panel plastic and make a custom filter so the front LED fans can show up better.
Can making 2 little pieces of metal for the center fan mount so I don't have to use any of the cages at all.
Just wish I can get aftermarket grommet parts for the case but i guess I just have to foam it.

4 out of 5 eggsCase review

Pros: *Fits everything I bought and more
*Love the customizable hard drive bays
*Not too showy, looks good while being simple

Cons: *Not so much a big deal, but the front panel is a pain to pull off. It feel like you're going to break it until it finally pops off., but not reason enough for the loss of a star.

*Biggest problem, and one that seems rampant for this product: the front usb, headphone, and mic jacks may/may not work, or they will stop working as time passes on.***

Other Thoughts: *** When I got this case, the front plug ins to the mic and headphone jacks did not work, and the usb ports were spotty at best. After hours of online searching, I found a solution. The screws under the panel that hold this front port to the case were on too tight. After taking it off, inspecting to be sure no initial damage was present, reattaching the screws (BUT NOT TOO TIGHT!!!), the jacks worked like a charm!

I get a lot of heavy use out of my computer, and I have not had a problem since. This problem alone is enough to keep the product from a 5/5 rating.

note: Sales rep contacted me early on about possibly receiving a new case and/or front port kit to fix the problem. They were very courteous and quick to answer, so I'll give them that.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: Nice sleek design
LED back I/O Panel
Spacious, room for tons of fans
Great cable management

Cons: Front mic and headphone jacks didn't work. (they quickly replaced the whole front panel I/O)

Other Thoughts: I really like this case, I've purchased several NZXT products and have always been impressed with the quality. This case is no exception, tons of room to fit all of the mods you could possibly want. I gave 4 eggs because of the front panel not working (headphone/mic only)... all it took was a quick email and they had the new part out to me in less than a week. Its an easy fix, just inconvenient now that I'm using this build all day everyday.

I currently have 5 fans in the case the largest being 2oomm (with room for more). I also really like the tilting fan mount in the middle. The case comes with a fan control hub and a discrete SSD mount, both great options for those seeking more utility from their case.

4 out of 5 eggsIssue with power button

Pros: Solid build, roomy, lots of cable management space, fan mounting points out the wazoo. LOVE the I/O leds!!

Cons: The power button on my case right out of the box appears to be stuck in the 'on' position. The switch clicks and moves freely when I press it, but if I plug the power switch into my motherboard (MSI Gaming 7 Z97), the machine cycles on and off. Tried reversing the polarity, but same issue. If I disconnect the power switch from the motherboard, the system works fine. Reset and I/O lights work fine.

Other Thoughts: I hope I can just get a replacement switch module and not have to send the entire case back. Took me all evening to get my machine rebuilt...

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice case for what i paid.

Cons: Bought Feb of 2014. The power button wires were not installed properly. When i went to turn on the computer it would not start. I contacted NZXT support and they were helpful when they talked to me, at first. They deleted my first ticket number then i contacted them again and set up another ticket number in April and have not heard another word from them. It is now almost November. I should have just taken the comp apart and got another case from Newegg instead of NZXT. I wish they would help but this is the last time that i buy anything form them.

Other Thoughts: Cheap

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT does it again....great value tower!!!

Pros: Great first full tower case. Fit under my son's desk with no problem....lends itself to both water and air cooling with ease. Very sturdy structure... with rear I/O light and fan hub = added value for your dollar.

Cons: Cable grommets (none)....had to buy from NZXT. But at least they do offer them...already knew this though.

Other Thoughts: Wish it would have been offered in white...
