4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low cost, works well, good quality.

Cons: Kind of cheap looking in my opinion, and the wire routing system could be better.

Also, I did have to move my HDD around to fit my GTX-780, but it is a big card.

Other Thoughts: Works really well if you just want a good case that has a low cost. However, I do wish I spent a bit more money and got a better looking case with a better wire routing system.

Overall - good case for the value that will get the job done.

5 out of 5 eggsFrom stone age to new age!

Pros: Ok, I just replaced my original case (1998) that I have done 6 builds in. I know, it's about time to upgrade! Got it! Well, where do I start. This case is amazing; light-weight and filled with options. My wife calls it "Darth Vader" not because it's evil but it's black with the USB, HDMI, and the other connections on the front panel make it look Star Wars like. I put in a ASUS ATX board with a 6 core AMD CPU, MSI card, BR player, DVD burner, two internal drives with all the fixings and I still have plenty of space for my toys. The slide in hardware trays are amazing. I am stoked!

Cons: Two of the three case fans I will keep but the other needs to go. The connections are cheap

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: This case has a large sturdy design. There are nearly 10 slots for HDDs and SSDs. It comes with multiple ports spanning from SATA to USB 3.0.

Cons: There are almost none besides of the size. Though it looks big from the outside it is tough to fit in some graphics cards. I barely fit my HD Radeon 7970. My other con is lack of liquid cpu cooling support but besides that it is perfect

Other Thoughts: Used this for about a year now, and it still works perfect!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Chasis

Pros: Blue LEDs, a lot of room for fans, front USB/Audio/Mic ports. This chassis has all you need for a solid gaming rig. Plenty of space to upgrade.
I have an 850W PSU, GTX 760 with a MID-ATX board and a CoolerMaster CPU fan and it all fits fine.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsBest value for the money

Pros: Three good size fans 120mm intake and exhaust fans, 140mm top fan that actually do a good job of flowing air into and out of the case to keep things cool. Looks decent. Front panel switches and LED have held up well. Bottom mount power supply. There is a USB 3.0 version of this case for those that need it.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsAn outstanding case for the price

Pros: It was a great case to build in with little need for tools. Decent cable management too.

Cons: No USB 3.0 headers, but if I really want them I can just put a 3.5 inch bay with them in one of the two available.

Other Thoughts: Assuming you're not obsessive about getting USB 3.0 on the tower itself, this case should be plenty for anything from a family PC to a gaming monster.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks good

Pros: Gets the job done, plenty of space. I originally was looking for something smaller, but I'm glad I got this one because I barely had room for everything in a relatively basic system.

It also comes with a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, I don't think that's mentioned, which is great because I'm only using SSDs.

Cons: No USB 3.0 on the front :(

I bought the very popular CPU cooler the 12Evo or whatever it's called (most reviewed CPU cooler), and it didn't seem to fit. Later I read other people managed to fit it in this case, but it was my first aftermarket CPU cooler installation. I eventually opted for a lower end liquid cooler and I'm glad I did. Getting 50C overclocking an FX-8350 from 4ghz to 5ghz.

Other Thoughts: To do something different I replaced the fans with purple LED fans and it looks cool.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent case for the money

Pros: Cheap and affordable, big enough for most setups NOT including water cooling.

Cons: the front light of mine doesn't blink when the computer is "thinking" not sure if this is intended or not but I have been sent a replacement front and the light still doesn't blink.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely a quality case

Pros: The case is wonderful for what I need. It's a pretty standard case. Nothing too fancy, but it's a good price for what you get.

Cons: Could be a little bigger with a little more cable management space, but again you get what you pay for. It's not pricey. It's practical.
