4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Solid/strong, More than enough screws even for people who lose them (like me), Fairly large, CPU runs super cool with the CPU horn (the plastic thing on the side), Tons of HDD bays, Clean look, everything worked Front USB ports, audio cable, also everything is labeled.

Cons: Not the best graphics card cooling its not horrible though. Door bent somewhat easily but still fits snug.

Other Thoughts: If your on a budget and don't really care what your PC looks like totally get this case. I might buy a different one next time i build a PC i was expecting it to be a little bit more flashy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Build Case

Pros: This is a great tower for the money, easily competing with other cases that cost twice as much. Airflow in the case is phenomenal; with an air cooling system my AMD Windsor 6000+ CPU stays below 50 degrees even under full load. Design of the case is impeccable, no issues with quality whatsoever. Why haven't you clicked "Add to Cart" yet?

Cons: Makes all my other, more expensive cases look like cheap plastic garbage. Does not play well with others.

Other Thoughts: It never ceases to amaze me how everyone who has ever reviewed a product on Newegg has a tech factor of five. Let's try to reserve the fours and fives for those of us who have been in the computer industry for years, not those who have only recently learned where the power switch is on their tower.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case, not power supply

Pros: Decent case for the money.

Cons: The power supply almost started a fire yesterday. My son uses this for games and such. Started smelling burnt wire then the case smoked. Luckily I was right there and was able to pull the plug. Thankfully it didn't blow out anything else.

Other Thoughts: The power supply is very cheap so be careful with it. If you will use this every day go out and get another power supply. The case itself is made out of thin metal but put together well. Overall its still worth the price.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case for cheap

Pros: Case is nice for being so cheap. It has a great look.

Cons: Has a very loud side fan! I would recommend replacing this fan if you care about noise levels

Other Thoughts: Lost one star because of the loud fan.

2 out of 5 eggsPay for what you get

Pros: Fan works fine for me (others have said it was noisy but I don't hear it). Cheap. Has plenty of room.

Cons: Pretty cheaply made.

The front end USB / Mic / Audio ports have a bad design.

The PCI slots on the back are annoying to work with.

Other Thoughts: I only really got it because it was a good deal with a power supply. I would not buy if it was not for that.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for the value

Pros: First, let me say that this is my first time building a computer. I should also mention that I got this case in combination with a motherboard, and there was a pretty substantial discount. So I was expecting the worst.

I was pleasantly surprised. It's really not a bad case; here are some pros:

1) cheap.
2) Solid enough - I don't have much experience in this area, but it feels comparable in flex to a Dell computer.
3)The USB ports on the front are really convenient. When I'm sitting in my chair by my computer, I look down and have a straight head-on view of them. They were also pretty easy to set up, even the first time.

Cons: 1.) The first thing I noticed was that I would not be able to provide power to the motherboard with the 120mm fan in the back still attached. So it's out of there.
3.) I got very frustrated trying to install my graphics card and a PCI expansion card - there's a bracket to fasten them in place, and it doesn't seem to like having anything there. It was a really annoying, but I got it working after a few minutes, so I suppose it's good enough.
2.) I had some trouble reaching the connectors for the front audio ports to the connections on my motherboard. I haven't tried to plug anything in there yet, but I'm not very optimistic.

Other Thoughts: If I could give it four and a half eggs, I would - the cons were really more annoying than anything else. The only thing I'm concerned about is the whole "I can't fit the fan in there" thing, and I'm thinking I'm going to get an 80mm fan for a few bucks off of Newegg.

I would definitely purchase this again.

3 out of 5 eggsGood value, Don't like stand-offs.

Pros: Cheap. Space for as many as 6 drives. The 120mm fan is surprisingly quiet - approximately 1000RPM on a sleeve bearing.

Cons: The drives are mounted fairly close to each other. It is difficult to get good airflow across the drives when all drive bays are occupied. Mounting a 120mm fan in the front tends to direct most of the airflow to the sides of the drives. I ended up removing the CPU duct because it seems to block a lot of airflow to a power supply (with bottom mounted fan) and to the rear 120mm fan. I stripped two of the mounting holes using finger-tip effort. I salvaged it by forcing in coarse thread screws.

Other Thoughts: At least one reviewer noted that there were no screws and a PCI slots was missing a blank. I'm guessing he is missing an accessory bag. Mine came with one and included case feet, a PCI blank, some screws, and a handful of brass standoffs.

5 out of 5 eggsFit my Sleeper Build Perfectly

Pros: Got it for 22 bones w/ free shipping. Don't have to remove motherboard to install CPU cooling system. Was able to stuff the following into the case:
i980x Gulftown
MSI Big Bang X58 X-Power
G Skill F3-6GB DDR3 16000
Corsair HX850 PSU
2 Samsung 1TB Spinpoints in Raid 0
Samsung Blu-Ray Player
2 Sapphire HD 5850 Toxics in Crossfire
Thermaltake Bigwater LCS with PrimoChill PC Ice
Windows 7 64bit Home Slice

Cons: Could'nt get all the HDD screws in, solid enough though.
Had to velcro on the radiator and fan for the TT LCS on the back,fortunately, it fit right over the interior exhaust Fan. Giving it that push,pull thing.

Other Thoughts: Was able to spend additional funds on making it go fast. Good air flow. Looks good, nothing fancy, but not plain jane either. Makes for excellent cable management, ran some of the wiring behing the MB tray.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Junk & Run

Pros: It has a 120mm fan with a standard 3-pin Mainboard connector. It ships double boxed (thin cardboard) to help avoid dings and dents.

Cons: I'm a 25 yr. IT Pro business owner. Got it as a shell shocker $23 deal, and now know why. Came with ZERO screws (not one), so luckily I have oodles as a pc builder, but still burned time finding the correct thread types to fit the standoffs. There is a Motherboard riser plate to help you install the mainboard, but only covers 4 main standoffs for micro-atx and 6 standard atx. We builders prefer to secure all 6 screws to a micro-atx board for our customers QA. I still needed to "find" 2 brass standoffs with screws of course to secure the board. The I/O plate will not fit due to the 120mm fan overlaping the cutout. I had to remove the fan and reinstall it in order to install the plate, with barely enough clearance to slide the mainboard into the I/O plate without a few tweaks to get it to fit. Again, more time burned which equals less profit. Finally, the bracket covering the Video card slot was missing, and as I'm using built-in VGA.

Other Thoughts: The biggest issue was lack of any screws, I/O plate cutout tweaking, and open VGA bracket. Otherwise I might have given the case 3 eggs. First time builders look elsewhere.
