Two 120mm fans, front and rear, direct outer air across your components to keep you cool in the hottest action, and easy clean filters in the front and left minimize dust fouling up the delicate works.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome little tower. It is everything you want: cool, sturdy, sleek and accomodating.

Cons: Front USB ports are very close together and horizontally aligned, so I had some issues plugging in some types of devices there.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case, no real complaints.

Pros: Tool/spare parts box is convenient. Pretty roomy, good layout. Solid case. Plenty of USB ports. Immediately loved the rails when I had to swap out my slightly used and now completely dead optical drive that reved up and killed my Windows 7 DVD just two minutes into install (glad that was just an ISO burn).

Cons: That fairly pointless bracket securing the removable covers for your expansion slots. Had to remove and screw on all the covers anyway in order to properly secure my graphics card. Very minor con though! Little bit noisy but with two large stock fans, what do you expect?

Other Thoughts: Good case, would recommend to a friend that I wanted to keep.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: Well this is a no brainer. The layout of the case is flawless. Side slide HDD allow for maximum space for MOBO Cards. Heavy and Extremely Solid Case. Love the way it looks and it is quiet. Excellent cooling. The Ambient temp inside the case stays between 23-29C. These are the best temps i have gotten from any prior case I have owned. Great case for a great price! NewEgg ROCKS!

Cons: None At All!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom X4 955

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Did what I needed it to do. Able to store my 5 drives for my Raid Array and Backup Drive. 2 Case fans. Easy to install CD drive and Hard Drives. Liked the fact I didn't have to install standoffs for my MB, they are built in.

Cons: Have to remember there are no screws in the drives if and when I pull them when they go bad. 3 years from now I may forget.

3 out of 5 eggsWould not buy again. Love it though!

Pros: top switch, top USB ports, two 120mm fans, two filters, side vents for cpu and video card, drive bay door to hide mismatched optical drives, no led sizzle lights everywhere, no logo name on display. Chassis Air guide - adjustable tube on side panel for CPU air. Nice labels on connectors. Cute accessories box. Deep enough that hard drive connectors can be straight out or 90 degree. Fan holders are screw-less mount. Swing door is double hinged which is slightly awkward at first but once you use the drive a few times you'll like how it lets the drive door get out of the way near the side of the case. Top USB ports keep cables out of the way of drive doors.

Cons: Front USB ports can crash some systems including my Gigabyte mobo, I've seen this posted before. - minus one egg. Rosewill has not responded to my email about this - minus another egg. (two weeks no reply) I do not like screw-less optical drive rails. First DVD drive I followed their instructions and pushed the rail into the screw hole. I worry the flange pushing in damages the threads for use elsewhere. Better to bend the flanges back flat and use screws (center hole). Manual is for 5600 series, this 5605 has two fans, book says one, front slots not louvered as in the book. I also used screws for the hard drives rather than the supplied push pins. HINT: Per another post replace the right side panel phillips head screws with thumb screws and remove the right panel to get to tabs needed to remove the front cover section. If you only release the tabs on the left and jerk the cover off you can break the tabs on the right. Remove front to clean filter or to install CD drives.

Other Thoughts: I was initially disappointed by how loud the system was. Case fans are almost all the noise. Motherboard controls the fans' speed. Researched fans Jamicon KF1225H1LSAR on Noise level is average for fans NewEgg sells. Still I bought a SFF21D, at 800 rpm and only 8dB.
Front USB ports are a problem for my system. System can crash by just connecting a USB device to front panel, never crashes with back panel. Gigabyte motherboard GA-MA790GPT-UD3H drops display so I have to power cycle. I can prevent this by first touching the USB device's plug to the case cover lock for more than five seconds. This releases imperceptible static discharge and/or charges the USB device to match from front panel's "ground". Then it connects without crashing. Also connect USB device before booting and there is no problem. Another customer thought the crashes were due to the front panel not being grounded. I think the crashes are caused by the capacitor in the front panel board.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the $$$

Pros: Price. Looks. USB and sound ports easily accessable on front top of case.

Cons: Had a small bit of trouble getting the power supply screw holes lined up with the case holes. Had to toss the bracket that is supposed to hold in PCI cards. Just using screws to keep them in place worked much better.

4 out of 5 eggsSturdy

Pros: This case is sleek looking with a nice finish that isn't too glossy. The inside has a clean look with plenty of space. This case had the easiest front panel headers I've ever connected. They are labeled very well and tied and tucked to a corner of the top of the case. The railings were pretty easy to work with and the way they "lock" in make you feel secure about a tool-less install. The filters seem like a nice quality addition. The built-in mounting standoffs are also very convenient. I don't think I have much use for the accessory box but it's a good thought.

Cons: The two fans are slightly loud. Not a major thing, but a minor annoyance.

Other Thoughts: You must have a screw for an add-on card or a floppy...

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost (but not quite) a really nice case

Pros: This case has many nice features, from dual 120mm case fans and cleanable filters to a lockable side latch. I found the drive mounting rails to be well made and liked the screwless anti-vibration mounts for the internal 3.5 drives. The front panel has usb/firewire/audio and a blue LED illuminated power switch. Overall the tool-less design lends itself to those who like to play with their hardware. The price is great for the features included.

Cons: First, note that these are more nitpicks than cons.
* Front bezel is attached with locking tabs that appear weak for the job.
* Front air filter is difficult to get at.
* No case intrusion or reset switch.
* 3.5 internal drive cage is riveted (not removable).
* 3.5 external cage is loose/rattles/noisy.
* PCI tool-less lock has marginal interference with ports near edge of PCI card.
* Case is a little bit tinny/noisy due to light gauge metal.

Other Thoughts: To make this a 5egg case a few mods in order.
* Get some acoustic dampening (ie. Thermaltake A2384 is what I got).
* Drill 6 small (1/8" or smaller) holes adjacent to front panel lock tabs through side of bezel, this allows you to release the locks with a stiff pin (ala jewelers screwdriver) without taking off the side panels.
* Remount the case fans with acoustic foam standoffs inserted, they will rattle in their snap-in retainers otherwise.

I would have designed this case a little bit different. Put the power button behind the lockable front door. It is very prone to being pushed by little fingers in its current location. Make the front air-filter removable without taking off the whole front bezel. Add some cross-brakes/ribs to the sheet metal, this would stiffen and quiet the case considerably.

On the whole, I am happy with this case. It has a great price to feature ratio and clean aesthetics that would not make it out of place in an office, home theater or gamers lair.
