5 out of 5 eggsAmaing, bigger than i thought

Pros: Large interior, much room for cable management, removable drive cages, fan options galore, water cooling friendly, and at a price that is great.

Cons: It is metal but easily bendable. Only come with two fans.

Other Thoughts: Excelent, going to add another r9 390 very soon.

5 out of 5 eggsReally impressed!

Pros: Tons of room! This case has room for everything and anything. I have a huge video card (R9 380) and it fits no problem. I also love the cooling options that this case provides, I was able to put two 140mm fans in the front (I removed the extra hdd bays), and a large water cooler at the top. There is an insane amount of cable management room as well, so unless you're terrible at routing cables, this case is amazing at keeping them out of the way.

Cons: The front of the case is a little hard to remove, and the coating on the case scratches pretty easily. The dust filters sometimes slide out from where they should stay and get in the way.

Other Thoughts: When trying to remove the front, there are little tabs that are tricky to squeeze together, make sure you have them all. Also, the front opens from the bottom and swings towards the top. Hopefully that helps.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: Great Storage area, able to clean filters without taking off sides, and good ventilation space. Great options for add-on parts. The USB and buttons are easy to install.

Cons: There is a light for the back panel that can be accessed from the front to turn on and off. Its useful if you don't use anything near the light on your motherboard like USB or PS2 connections. The light gets blocked if these are used. Its a small gripe but one that doesn't matter too much.

Other Thoughts: Lots of great options, with one gripe. one of the best cases that I've seen and used.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: This case is a fairly basic, cheap solution for those who are looking to upgrade to a full size tower. It has fantastic cable management, hard disk trays, a solid state mount, and even removable hard disk cages. There's plenty of room for most any kind of cooling solution you can get your hands on (not all, obviously) and will fit even the largest of cpu heatsinks.
It has nice, not too bright lights on the front. Other than those, there are no more LED's that come in this case, or in the fans for that matter. I like that. Nice and simple.
I got this case on sale for a little over 80$, and it is definitely worth that price.

Cons: Over the few weeks that I've had the case, I've discovered that the material it is made of can mar easily. Depending on how long your sata cables are and where your sata ports are oriented on your mobo, you may have trouble getting them to reach to your cd/dvd drive or whatever else you've got in the top two of three 5.25" bays. I somewhat expected this, but the case weighs almost as much as my whole build before I moved to this case (Mid size).

Other Thoughts: This is a nice case, definitely worth it even at full price. Well done, NZXT.

5 out of 5 eggslegit

Pros: seriosuly confused as to why this case isn't more popular. I mean if you're the type of person who wants a case that doesn't look like a spaceship, then here ya go! plenty of fan slots, all the cable hole things you could ever want, fits HUGE gpus and HUGE cpu fan heatsinks, and looks good while doing it. case is sturdy, and rubber feetsies are cool. removable hd cages just in case you don't have 7 of them.

Cons: only con I can think of is the thumbscrews are trash. almost wish I could buy aftermarket thumbscrews.. maybe you can.. however if you choose not to buy a case because the screws are too difficult to get out.. well maybe you should look in a different price bracket.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: I like to think this case is for adults who don't want an alien or stormtrooper on their desk. This is my second build (actually a transplant). A little bigger and way better than the Couger case i got in part with a barebones build. Room enough to move around and plenty of back space for cable management, this case offers all you need for a clean build. My number 1 gripe was cleaning PC's out. PM'ing a build with this case should be no problem with 2 bottom filters and 1 front filter (#1 reason why i bought it).

Cons: First thing i did was throw out the fan hub and replace with a PWM hub for the 8 fans i run. No way will i have fans running full blast and leave a layer of dust on my equipment. As previous reviews state, no grommets. Not a deal breaker for me; if you want them get them.

Other Thoughts: My first build i didn't what i was doing. Wires everywhere along with an uncleanable case. I wanted a case to house my present build and future builds. I think this case is perfect for those who want a clean look without your PC looking like a 16 year old built it (nothing wrong with 16 yr old building PC's, but ima little bit older than that).

5 out of 5 eggsMy own fault.

Pros: This case is actually pretty awesome, or at least It would've been had it actually fit my motherboard.

Cons: It doesn't fit SSI EEB 12x13 MBs.

Other Thoughts: It's my own fault for assuming that an E-ATX case would fit my ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS. I didn't realize that SSI EEB was an actual form factor, so it's my own dumb fault. I will be RMAing it, sadly, because I loved everything about this case. I won't deduct stars for that.

4 out of 5 eggsgood case with some issues

Pros: The case is very roomy, will fit anything reasonable. I put in two 140mm fans on top and had more then enough room for my gpu and a 120m radiator in the back. It's nicely modular, I removed all but one drive bay cages to get better airflow from the front. Most of it is tough and well constructed, and simple to take apart. It comes with plenty of screws and cable ties and is built to fit all kinds of fans and radiators. Plus it come with two fans. Excellent deal with rebate (I got it for like $68 after rebate, including shipping). And I did receive my rebate after about 9 weeks.

Cons: EDIT: I found I had some issues with the front panel audio, it wasn't working. After debuggin for an hour or two I figured out the issue was i had my realtek audio set to 'HD Audio'. When I switched to AC 97, the front panel audio worked perfectly (regardless of the bios settings on the audio). This is really misleading because both the nzxt manual and the audio connector from the case say 'HD Audio'. Which is a specific settings in the realtek audio driver. I think NZXT was using it as just a buzzword and wasn't actually referring to the HD audio spec used with motherboards. But since I was able to fix the issue I didn't feel like taking another egg off. But I'll be suspicious of nzxt cases from now on.

I'm also having issues with the lighting on the case, like the NZXT logo, but I haven't spent much time debugging that.

Otherwise:
The plate for the front fans was just a tiny bit thinner than I would have liked. Started to flex slightly when I would screw in the fans two tightly or asymmetrically. The coating on the case seems to scratch easily. Like simply removing the screws from their holes leaves tiny scratches along the holes. But maybe this is common? I wish it had a fan filter on the top and back. They put fan filters on the front and bottom. But I guess they thought it was not necessary since they imagine you'll be sucking air in from the front and pushing it out the top and back. Also, one or two more fans would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: Has some issues but is an overall good case at a great price. Not very fancy but very functional.
