5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is great

Pros: Easy to access. Tool-less case entry (unless your fingers twisting thumbscrews are tools). Tool-less drive mounting. Quality finish, inside and out. Monster sized fans. Very easy to build a system in.

Cons: If there are any...I've not found any

Other Thoughts: This case was in my Super Combo. Had a sweet Lucite clear case, but it was a pain to access and keep clean. Moving into this case made system building a piece of cake. Love the case. Would give more than five stars if I could.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: amazing case for the price, would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it.

Pros: Plenty of space and easy cable management. Keeps out dust pretty good. Nice power button. Stays cool.

Cons: Was missing the dust filter underneath for the PSU. I contacted newegg and one was sent to me asap. Wasn't a huge deal and caused me no hassle.

Other Thoughts: Really good case for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsit's good.

Pros: Easy enough to work around in, decent looking, it all works well, seems to have lots of air flow, decent even with a dead fan

Cons: Kinda big and klunky, front fan died after two years, I'm now in the process of replacing that one fan.

Other Thoughts: I'm looking to do a system upgrade soon, and I'll just put the new guts right back in this case.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid as a Rock - Get It!

Pros: Good mid sized case with lots of fans. Blue light is pretty rad looking. Fans dont seem to all require separate power so they all still run with my cheap mobo that doesnt have enough connections! Also, its a great price.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall excellent case and worth the money.

Pros: The case is more then worth the money, great ventilation due to the grated front panel and the vented side panel as well as the vented expansion slots. The fans that come with it are pretty good although the rear fan made small amounts of noise at max speed, but not really a con.
One other thing I loved and applaud is the fact the expansion slot covers are replaceable. The last two cases I had (one being a Rosewill) had punch out slot covers that couldn't be replaced so I had to buy covers myself. Its convenient to have replaceable ones as long as I don't lose them.

Cons: A couple gripes about the case that are more personal then anything. To install the motherboard you may want to remove the top fan as it is extremely close the the mounting location and did obstruct me when installing mine. I also wish it had USB 3.0 on the front but that was taken care of by the eSata port.

Other Thoughts: I did replace the rear fan, while the noise wasn't terrible and could be easily ignored, I had better fans from an old build on hand. The top and front fans are barely noticeable so I didn't bother to replace them. I also liked that fact you can mount 2 120 mm fans on the side panel or possibly a liquid cooling radiator (though the rear vent also has a single 120 mm radiator configuration.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case for great price!

Pros: Great price!
Solid case, not flimsy (but dont go kicking it around the house)
3 Fans included produce enough airflow
Enough space for me to fit my ATX, dual fan Graphics card, and monstersized Enermax CPU cooler!
PSU installed on bottom for easy install

Cons: The only real con is that it is a bit tight when putting it together. They removed all unnecessary space so it can get a little cramped when mounting the components. But for such a low price I cant take an egg off!

5 out of 5 eggsNo challenges with a CHALLENGER

Pros: I've built a lot of PCs over the years and for an inexpensive case I'd choose this one over and over. Great cooling, great features, great access. The three fans are enough for most builds but you can another one over the CPU and it has upper rear grommets if you need to water cool. The front panel fan has an LED, if you're into that. The PSU is bottom mounted with plenty of clearance for larger supplies and MBs. It provides 5 external bays (3 - 5 1/4s & 2- 3 1/2s) great for optional SSD drive bays, USB 3.0 ports, fan controller, or Memory card readers. You can install 5 internal drives without needing any screws and there are 7 expansion tabs on the rear panel. This case is had to beat at this price point !!

Cons: No USB 3 ports.

Other Thoughts: The missing USB 3 ports are easy and inexpensive to add.
I just used this case to update my sons system to an I7, Z97 MB, Dual GTX 760 (4GB ea & SLI), 1 SSD, with 3 data drives(4TB ea), 1 kW PSU, cool master CPU water cooler and the only thing I had to buy that any equivalent case would have had was an adapter for the 3.5" bay to add USB 3 ports.
