4 out of 5 eggsDecent case, have no regrets

Pros: This case has 4 front USB connectors and no firewire connectors. Firewire is not really needed anymore so that is a bonus. Two case fans are included, I just wish the front one had no LED's in it. It is roomy and easy to work with.

Cons: The backplane has punchout covers for the expansion cards instead of removable blanks. Some blanks are included, but that just shows how dumb it was to not put them in already. The power supply holes don't seem to line up well. I had to pull the front cover off and re-route the wires for the power button, reset button, and such through a different hole because they weren't long enough to reach the connector on the motherboard. I don't like how the hard drive brackets are.

Other Thoughts: You do have to put the motherboard in differently, but it is not confusing. I would buy this again.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid Case with build issues.

Pros: Solid case. Size is right. You can fit a huge video card in it. The case is unobstructed where the video card sits from front of the case to the back case fan. Sides of case come off easily and mount solidly. Good front to back airflow with stock case fans. Front USB 3.0 and 2.0 as well as headphone jacks easy to access.

Cons: The mounting holes for the power supply did not match up with the screw holes in my Corsair TX750W power supply, Model CMPSU-750TX. Had to get out a file and open up 2 of the holes so the screws would thread.
The screw less hard drive mounting brackets allow a lot of wobble in the hard drive. 0.25 to 0.5 inches. Used screws to lock my 3.5 inch Western digital drive down.
The hard drive mounting holes on the bottom of the case are spaced for a different size SSD drive than my Plexor PX-256M6S drive. Will eventually by a universal bracket to mount on bottom of case and hold my SSD drive down.

Other Thoughts: An annoying case for my build. Filing to open up the power supply mounting screw holes, not fun, but was quickly done. That, and the weak tool less hard drive mounts. Other than standard spacing of mounting holes for SSD drives on bottom of case? Off 2 points for filing and hard-drive mounting.
Now the build is done. Not unhappy with this case. See Pros.

5 out of 5 eggsThis

Pros: If there is the same model but with the power supply at the bottom, I buy a 100. I buy the company and I put my name on it!

Cons: -

5 out of 5 eggsNICE SMALLISH CASE

Pros: Has 2 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports on front - Enough said. I chose this case for an upgrade to get the USB 3.0 ports especially, and since it had 2 USB 2.0 ports also SCORE, I use/need All these as i have my wireless keyboard/mouse, 2 360 controllers and a USB phone charger all pluged into these (the USB 3.0 seems to charge phone faster as it has more juice) See Other Thoughts

Cons: EXTREMELY TIGHT FIT OF COMPONENTS, moreso than my ITX board / case. Vdieo Card (HD6870) blocks top 4 SATA slots and only bottom SATA slots are USEABLE -(1 sata 3.0 and three sata 2.0) Also cannot use any low heatsinks no matter how low your ram is as they will get covered up, as well as make pluging in cords to DVD drive impossible!! - Thankfully I had A closed loop liquid cooling system lying around and that worked PERFECTLY. ONCE AGAIN THIS CASE IS TINY!!! AWESOME. BUT TINY!!

Other Thoughts: This is about as small a mATX case as you can get and still fit a full sized ATX PSU and VIDEO CARD. maybe it was my mistake in mounting my 3.5 HDD on the bottom as the vid card covered that up too so i has to take out the vid card to plug in the cables to the HDD

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case for $50 price range

Pros: Great style and features for this price range
Good airflow
Plenty of space for a good size cpu cooler
EVGA 660ti fits nicely
Side air vent allows downfacing cpu cooler to pull air from outside the case.

Cons: The case fans are cheap - replaced mine with PWM variable speed fans so the system is virtually silent unless I'm gaming.
Drive clips feel flimsy
Wire management is dicey but doable

Other Thoughts: Space between the power supply and cd/dvd/br drive is rather tight, older larger cd/dvd drives could make wire management painful. Definitely suggest using a shorter drive so there will be space for excess power supply wire.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill Line-M

Pros: Size, Appearance, USB 3.0 Front Panel. I own two of these one with fx8350 and one intel 4770 both with r9 280x gfx cards. Cable managment is tough but I expected that with the amount I packed into this form factor. Keeps my gfx cards around 70 degrees on stock settings. Fits full size CPU coolers. This is just about the perfect size for a computer case in my opinion.

Cons: bent the back panel slightly removing cut outs for PCI and PCIe mounts other than that no complaints really.

Other Thoughts: Get a modular PSU for this case.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Lightweight, easy enough to work in, no sharp edges, lots of front panel ports. All internal cables well labeled.

Cons: The internal cable for the front panel headphone jack was about 1 inch too short. It terminates with two plugs, one for AC97 audio, one for HD audio. The AC97 plug was longer and could reach the audio socket on my motherboard, the HD audio plug could not.

Other Thoughts: Never did experience that "mystic ambiance" created by the blue LED incorporated into the front cooing fan.

Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprising nice

Pros: Clean outside appearance, good air flow for effective cooling, extra mounting holes in the base for a standard HDD, accommodates a 120mm radiator for water cooling, front USB 2 and 3 ports. Pleasing blue glow from the included front fan. I expect good service from this fan; it is similar to the one in my Challenger case that has run flawlessly for 3 years.

Cons: The case cutout behind the motherboard does not line up with the CPU location for my AMD motherboard. If installing a water cooler, the bracket must be inserted from the back of the mobo before installing the mobo in the case. Since this a one-time issue, I did not deduct any eggs. Also, the supplied front fan does not support PWM for automatic speed control from the mobo. Fortunately, the fan is fairly quiet.

Other Thoughts: I moved components from an older, second hand case. That old case could barely keep an Athlon II 2.4 GHz chip from overheating due to poor airflow. I upgraded to a Phenom 3.0 GHz CPU and added water cooling. CPU temp now 30C and mobo 33C; this is about 10 degrees cooler than the slower CPU in the old case. I and my spouse are pleased with the performance and low noise. The radiator had to be installed in a "pusher" arrangement; that is the radiator mounts against the inside of the back of the case and the fan mounts inside of the radiator.

This is not a case for a heavy duty server build. For a HTPC or Internet browsing machine, it is a perfect choice.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work for me

Pros: USB 3.0, good reviews, price

Cons: Flimsy construction, poor fit in the DVD drive bays, very little room for the power and SATA connectors on the DVD

Other Thoughts: I purchased this based on the reviews and the two 3.0 USB ports on the front. My previous build used the Cougar MG100 which I think is a much better built case and without the fit problems of this case.
