5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: -Great Size
-Light Weight
-Compatible with almost all cpu coolers.

Cons: -No cons

Other Thoughts: This is not a con but what would make this came perfect (in my opinion) wold be if a filter would be added on the top of the case. I am still giving this case 5 eggs, highly recommend it :).

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: Price. Versatility for the price. I love the modular hhd mounting and the fan hub. Filters on all intakes.

Cons: The mounting screws for a 200mm fan where too long for a standard depth fan. I would guess they are meant for their own 200mm fan install. Wish it had a filter at the top. No Grommets...

Other Thoughts: For anyone building on a budget or not, I think this case would suit. It's not fancy looking, but it does the job of more expensive cases.

Good options for liquid cooling, or just plain fans if that's your preference.

I hope NZXT builds more ATX cases like this.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Starter Case

Pros: This case is everything you could ask for in a starter tower. There are six hard drive bays split into one bay, two bay, and three bay segments. Each can be mixed in any order. Plenty of room and fans for a low heat build. You still have room to add many more fans if you would like to. You can get nicer cases for more money but its hard to beat the price on a budget.

Cons: Had one drive tray not work and actually fell apart but I only needed three of the six anyways so not a huge issue to me personally.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge and nicely made case with lots of features. Highly recommend.

Pros: - Lot of room for components.
- Lot of "behind the board wall" space for keep cable slack. Nice and hidden wiring layout.
- Removable slide in filters all over the thing.
- Very breathable perforations, but case still feels like a tank.
- Removable 1-,2-, & 3-drive bays which can be customized. Allowed my R9 390 triton to fit.
- Nice snap down DVD drive casing. Never had before, so it's kind of nice.
- Overall a very nice case for no more than it costed. Nice!

Cons: - The +P/-P leads didn't make sense, but this could have been the MSI x97 Gaming 5's fault. (figured out w/Google)
- The 2.5/3.5" drive bay trays require the backside of the case be removed, HOWEVER this is good since it keeps the wires stowed away in the back of the machine. So at first I was miffed but after realizing I never have to access those bays anything, this forces you to keep the wires tucked away and is a good thing.
- The fact I didn't buy this sooner. This is a really nice case.

Other Thoughts: Yes, highly recommended. It's not a LED strobe factory which helps when playing games in the dark. It's not a fancy case you would put in a beauty contest, but it looks good. Overall it's a great case with a lot of features but it's just what I need to hold my equipment and stay

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good case

Pros: Plenty of room, good packaging, highly customizable, great radiator support, and great build quality

Cons: Not sure if it's just my case but I need pliers to get the right side pins holding the front panel loose. If you have fat fingers good luck getting your hands in there at all.
Fan splitter runs at 100% with included molex to 3 pin connector. If you want PWM control you'll need to get a separate adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy and well-designed

Pros: - Large, with plenty of space for the largest coolers and several radiator mounting options if you're using a water cooler.
- Designed very well - all the cable routing is accessed by removing the right side (viewed looking at the front) panel which keeps keeps cables from blocking airflow
- Plenty of cable wrap tie points
- Bottom and front panel filters
- Accommodates fans on the back, bottom, top and front, and one fan on a pivoting bracket that you can direct wherever you want. Up to 9 fans, not including CPU fans. 2 fans are included
- 3 5.25 bays
- 6 3.5" HDD bays
- LED lighting at the rear so you can actually see what you're doing, controlled by a button
- Mounting location for an SSD on the "cable routing" side, effectively giving you an extra drive bay.
- The three HDD cages all come out if you need even more room or want to put a radiator behind the front panel.
- Everything fits.
-Good assortment of screws are provided.

Cons: - A filter screen at the top would have been a good addition to help keep dust from falling into the case when powered down.
- A few more front panel USB ports would have been good. Two ports are not enough these days, but at least they're 3.0 ports. I got a USB add on module that goes in one of the 5.25" slots to add more ports.

Other Thoughts: I like this case a lot. Having the cables all accessible from one side and the motherboard and related parts on the other, with a lot of tie points for cable ties, makes cable routing and dressing very easy. The HDDs insert from the side, so their cable access is on the side where all the cables are routed, contributing to minimal clutter on the component side. The design is a plain, black, industrial looking box, not something that looks like it's from a Star Wars movie. It's just a good, functional case that will house a lot of gear. CPU cooler vertical clearance is 183mm which means a Noctua DH15 will fit. I used this as the case for an engineering workstation, and even though it's big compared to a mid-tower, it's well worth it. Also, relatively inexpensive for a full tower.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat size and great value

Pros: great size and great layout inside. very roomy and excellent cable management. the area in the back where all the fans plug in is great for keeping cables out of the way, but the fans I took out of my old computer have a different type of plug, so I'm not getting as much use out of that as I could, though I do still like the option. the light in the I/O area is the best idea I've ever seen, though I do wish it could turn on without the PC being powered on. it's only a small inconvenience though. love how much space there is for case fans, and how those spaces have holes so you can choose either 120 or 140mm. so many options with this case! also love how easy it was to put the disk drive in compared to the two other cases I've owned where it was a massive pain to get it in or out.

Cons: while it does make for more convenient addition and removal of hard drives, having to open the right panel to get to that area rather than the left is frustrating because getting the panel screws back in takes forever. if I still had a dremel I'd make the holes on the panel a bit bigger so they align better with the screw holes, but for now I have to deal with the screws being in at an angle and barely holding on.

I like how you can put fans along the bottom panel, but I'm concerned about heat build up underneath the case because of my power supply's fan. it's probably a setup that would work out better on wood or tile flooring, but that's just not doable for me right now

Other Thoughts: really great case for the price. large enough to fit everything and the only complaints I have are really more like inconveniences. I'll be loading this thing up with fans soon enough so I have that nice blue LED glow I love, though if anyone looking to buy this doesn't like their computer to be too bright, I'd recommend not putting fans with LEDs along the top panel as it's a large area and it could probably light up the whole room if you put LEDs there
