3 out of 5 eggsNot for a serious gamer.

Pros: Case has a large amount of air flow. Lots of fans and just like a full size case there are actual drive bays and trays. There is a some what worthy effort for cable management. Cool LED blue lights. Comes with a screwdriver socket for the mother posts.

Cons: No real cable management for cables such as the ATX cable for the CPU. Case is almost too small for a serious gamer card (like the r9 series or even the 6970). Posts are ridiculous to put and are in areas too small for big hands. Posts are very hard to put. The motherboard screws do not connect completely with the posts and makes a feeling of insecurity. with all of my stuff in it, I cant even close the door all the way and its partly open. NOT for a serious gamer who loves to thrive!!

Other Thoughts: maybe if I was new to PC building and did not know that 256 bit cards are far superior to 128 bit cards even SLI or crossfire I might be happy with this case but as it is now and knowing what I know, full size towers are for serious gamers.

2 out of 5 eggsBad usb connections and audio jack

Pros: It's a good size. Not too big not too small. Plenty of room for everything I need. Good air flow and quiet fans.

Cons: The usb connections in the front aren't very good. You have to have a fine balance when things are plugged in to them. If you bump it it will act like it's not plugged in even though it clearly is. Same thing with the audio jack. I use that to plug my headphones in. I have to twist the cable to the exact right spot for it to read my headphones. On top of that if i bump the cable, the sound will quit all together and i'll have to restart the computer.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty but not durable

Pros: Nice Case, pretty to look at, easy to set up and access inside

Cons: Came with front panel broken off. Cheap plastic pegs to hold the front cover on were all broken when arrived.

Other Thoughts: Other than the broken front cover , I am happy with this case. We just utilized a little super-glue and its good to go rather than mess with sending it back and waiting for a new one. The front cover is only needed for access to front fan otherwise its fine being glued on. ; )

Cons: the 2 front usb3 ports, have dislodged from the case. their free floating in this case.i rarely use them, preferring to use the usb3 ports from the motherboard. wished u have used the other case for my build. may end up purchasing another case to replace mine.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Easy to assemble, plenty of space for cable routing, fit a hyper 212 plus without problem.

Cons: One of the fan slots on the side is right over the CPU, so a tall CPU cooler (like my hyper 212 plus) will prevent you from putting a fan there. Not enough to subtract an egg, but still something.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the front fan with a red fan which I think goes a lot better with the look of the case.
