5 out of 5 eggs5 Eggs For Thrifty Priced Case

Pros: For a SMALL (and I mean small) ATX mid tower it isn't to hard to work with. The front cover unsnaps with relative ease & the side covers slide off & on fairly easy and fit well. This is a no frills case with the exception of the 4 USB on the front. I bought this because I had been upgrading from my MSNV-939 with AMD 4000+ single core with 4GB DDR (yes yawn) to an A10 & A88x+Pro. The Mach Speed system really ran stable with Win7 (and previously WinXP64) and I figured I would try to list them on the most well know auction site & sell the parts. After seeing that wasn't going to work I figured I would buy this case and transfer the innards plus give me a chance to part with some older hardware. I transferred everything today and installed Win7 & it'll be on Craigslist before the weekend.

Like I said the case is small for a mid tower and even though my hands are big and used to working in my Thermaltake Chaser MK-I I had little issues putting it all together. I took extra care and routed and zip tied cables to make the best of the 2 used 80mm fans. The system flows decent air and the CPU is staying around 32ºC/89.6ºF with the original stock cooler.

The supplied cables are long enough to route neatly when care is taken.

The case is light and when fully assembled (mobo, CPU, 2 3.5" hard drives & 1 optical drive is easily carried about. Can't be said for the Chaser MK-I or the original Ultra eTorque case I saved for a future project.

Again, the air flow is decent considering I am using 2 80mm fans that move an advertised 32+CFM. If you throw your parts together it will impede airflow.

That is pretty much it for the PROS

Cons: Well, if you are expecting a really sweet case and you are looking at this one it won't compare. Its not a bad case if you are looking to re-case an old system or revamp an old Win9x machine. The metal is thing and if you are rough with it expect dents, dings etc. The case when torn down is quite flexible and when installing drives and tightening them down they become part of the spine for this box.

Its not very wide so you wouldn't get carried away with a large CPU cooler. Also the motherboard tray doesn't have access to the back of the mobo with the cooling heatsink plate is. This was a very close fit for the aged 939 board. I wouldn't fill it with a lot of drives because then it'll have little to know airflow with the 80-90mm fans.

Its not overly loud but is isn't quiet.

This is a basic case.

Other Thoughts: I gave it 5 eggs because it is what it is. It didn't boast anything spectacular and therefore it met my needs. I have $38 invested in this case and an open box economy PSU. Everything else I installed, mobo, AMD 4000+ CPU, 2 Seagate 80GB IDE drives, DVD-RW Light Scribe IDE, 1 flat IDE cable and one round dual drive cable, 2 case quad color LED case fans & a few adapters were all previously used. Those drives are pushing 10 years old. Gotta love Seagate. If I get $100 I'll be happy and some old hardware is down the road.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat the hell do you want for 22 bucks?!

Pros: Its 22$! It's a case! It fits at lest 4 3.5" HDDs + 2x5.25" bays! It fits microATX!

Cons: It's flimsy as all hell, required a fair bit of bending to fit the power supply, and generally feels exactly as you'd expect the cheapest case you can buy to feel like.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does the job and looks good

Pros: I'd had an old Asus P5Q Pro Turbo ATX motherboard in a back closet gathering dust along with pretty much everything I'd need to put together a very nice desktop computer that I wanted to give to a needy local charitable organization. All I really required was a case. So I searched Newegg, found this one, and decided that for the price I could ignore the warnings in the reviews and give it a try. I'm so glad I went with my instincts. This case is perfect for my needs, my ATX MBO fits nicely, there's room for everything I wanted to give away, the front panel connectors and lights were all there and they work as they should (USB-2 ports only). Maybe not a great case, but a perfectly fine one. It even looks good!

Cons: Yes, part of my MBO floats in mid air. So what? Do you plan to rest your coffee cup on it? You can't put fingers under it to brace when you're plugging in a component? Your OCD kicks in when you see a screw hole without a screw? The packaging contains plenty of offset screws for MBO support -- six of them. That's plenty, for my MBO anyway.

Other Thoughts: In placing my order I discovered there's a Newegg warehouse in my city. Talk about convenience! I placed my order and within an hour I received a phone call telling me I could pick up my case right away. Thanks, Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than a pizza box

Pros: Has held up for over two years. Everything still works. Even has room for two side mounted 120mm case fans.

Cons: USB front panel is upside down. Not like you can plug in a USB the first time anyway, champ. I could probably fix it if I wanted to, but it works either way, even after two years of use.

Other Thoughts: You came here because it is a full sized box for your parts that is super cheap. Sure it may seem a little flimsy, but what do you expect? If you want rolled edges and fancy design, cough up a little more money. If you want to avoid using a pizza or cereal box and want something a little more stylish than that old Dell box you have lying around, then this one works.

5 out of 5 eggsLook at the little bag of parts!

Pros: Holds parts together
Actually does Fit ATX boards!! (see Other Thoughts)

Cons: thin metal

Other Thoughts: OK so yes, the mobo tray is too skinny to completely support a full ATX board with mounted standoffs.

If you look in that little bag of parts that comes with every case, and that every one ignores, you will see 3 thick barreled plastic standoffs which are taller than the rest. Pop these into the outer edge holes on your full ATX board, and they support the board just like a full sized mobo tray would do. No bending, no flexing boards. (other than the flexing that will happen with this thin metal anyway)

2 out of 5 eggsNot very good

Pros: Price

Cons: See "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: Not many things align on this thing. I've had 2 different mobos installed and neither of them sits right and as a result the back ports don't align with the holes, nor do the openings for expansion slots align properly. I guess the price reflects the quality.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Holds PC parts together in the right dimensions.
excellent price

Cons: thin and easily bendable, but you kinda have to already know that at this price. The parts you put in it will provide the structural integrity to the case, not the other way around.

Other Thoughts: THis is a good case for a build that will stay in one place. The price cant be beat, and it is far better than other budget cases I have used at up to 3 times the price.

This is the only budget case I have used so far that didnt strip one or more screw holes immediately. :D

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It looks cool.

Cons: It is NOT made for ATX at all, there are not enough screw slots for all the standoffs for a full size ATX board. Even worse, there is no back opening where the CPU should be, there is an opening on the bottom by the PCI slots for some reason. This should not be advertized as ATX, im not sure what its for at all if you cant access the back of the board for CPU fans.

Other Thoughts: Dont Buy

2 out of 5 eggsIts ok.

Pros: The price of it is really the only plus that I have encountered.

Cons: *My Front bezel is duct taped thanks to shipping damages.
*Steel is not rolled, cut myself all of the time in it
*Poorly laid out, can only fit 2 HDD's with a dual slot GPU

2 out of 5 eggsOk, not pretty, not ugly, starting to showing age

Pros: Cheap case, 4 usb front, simple enough to set up. Comes with all the basic stuff you need, as long as you know where everything should go.

Cons: No cable management, no 3.0 usb, top PSU, screws strip paint on panels upon removal.

Fan attachments are minimalist, can make the case very noisy.

Other Thoughts: Used in my first "build" which was a salvaged form factor to make room for a better PSU and GPU.

I got this case about a year ago and it works fine. There isn't anything special about it at all, it is just an ok box to stuff your computer in. Nothing on it has failed, fallen off, or broken, but I keep it under my workdesk in my house, not a shop or at work. So your mileage may vary.

With other cheap cases now commonly supporting 3.0 usb, unless you really love the layout or the 4 usb at the front, I would suggest getting another case so you can fully utilize your motherboard.

For an old system or using an old board that does not use 3.0 USB I think this case is a solid choice.
