4 out of 5 eggsVery compact for an ATX case

Pros: This case has all you could want for an outstandingly compact ATX build. It has plenty of room for 6x3.5" drives with an additional 3.5" external bay. 4x5.25" drive bays to put use multiple disk drives or hot-swap drive bays. Bottom mounted power supply with mesh filter. Plenty of room for a dual 120mm radiator with room for the motherboard choke heatsinks. Nice lightbars and top-mounted USB ports. Has room in the front for dual 140mm fan in a push-pull configuration with room for the hard drive cage. Front bezel is full of dust-filtering material. Has opening for CPU heatsink swapping. Top of the case does remove with screws for better access to motherboard and drive bays. Removable front fan filter to stack more fans if wanted.

Cons: Did not come with all the case accessories i would have liked. Only comes with 7 motherboard stand-offs. Advertises the ability to install a 120mm fan in the front when there are no mounting holes for 120mm. Instead a 140mm, 100mm, and 80mm fan mounting holes are available. The top mount fans are pushed out, making it impossible to install fans or filter material on top of the case. Only comes with 2x3.5" tool-less drive mounts and 2x5.25" tool-less drive mounts with not enough screws to fill all of the bays. No room behind the motherboard for cable management. Terrible cable routing for the front ports. 2.5" bay is something I would never put an SSD on as it is too close to the bottom of the case to not worry about breaking the SATA or power connections. Power and reset buttons are really easy to hit and accidentally power down your computer.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this case to an enthusiast. I would recommend this case for someone building a cheap NAS or small server. I wish that there were more motherboard stand-offs for the 9 holes for ATX motherboards and a 3.5" to 2.5" hard drive bay adapter or additional mounting holes placed on the underside of the external 3.5" or 5.25" bays. The fan mounts should never be popped out, especially the top ones as the space cannot be used to place external hard drives or other various external accessories.

This case does satisfy my needs and I can modify the things I don't like about it fairly easily. The front is very nice and makes my ATX computer look like a mATX.

2 out of 5 eggsArrived Damaged

Pros: It has a lot of fan slots for the size of case you are getting. It's pretty sturdy.

Cons: The back panel started warping out after a year. Even thought it has many fan slots the wires from the power supply basically block the bottom fan and make the case very cramped.My item arrived damaged which is why i cant give it a 3rd star. led's flickering out after a year.

Other Thoughts: I had the case for a little over 3 years. It served its purpose but cant recommend this case to anyone because i don't this the price reflects what your getting.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's a case..

Pros: Decent amount of room if you're not running a big watercooling setup.
Cable management is do-able..
Fancy lights in the front (never hooked them up personally?)

Cons: The rear pci slots metal tabs with the thumb screws were REALLY REALLY hard to get out.. I had to remove 2 of them and they were like...welded in or not fully cut out to where they'd just pop out... I ended up bending the case quite a bit in the back side trying to twist and turn it out. I finally had to grab a dremel and cut it the rest of the way off after destroying the top 2 channels..

Other Thoughts: I couldn't believe that the slots weren't fully cut..Used the case for about 2 months then I ended up selling the case for what I paid and bought a MASSIVE one. Stoked!

2 out of 5 eggsDon't cheap out on a case.

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: The case is extremely flimsy. The front panel and top are connected and broke off immediately. Had to use a hot glue gun to fix. The expansion brackets have no way to be removed, besides with a pair of pliers. The brackets also have trouble supporting weight for your graphics cards. Mine are tilted slightly.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't cheap out on a case just to get a build done. This case caused a lot of headaches from the day I built my machine, until right now before I replace it. The Rosewill BlackHawk is not much more, and that case is almost perfect. Get that or something similar instead.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: it's a nice case, sleek and nice-looking, but it was broken when it arrived.

Cons: I bought the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 motherboard with my set-up and it does not fit in this case, just a heads-up.

1 out of 5 eggsUgh

Pros: Loved the design. Clean look, blue LED light strips are a cool but still professional-looking design

Cons: USB 3.0 ports as others have noted don't work correctly. If I plug a 3.0 portable drive into one of the 3.0 ports, it causes the wireless mouse (dongle in a USB 2.0 port) to behave extremely sluggish. It doesn't matter what brand of drive or what brand of mouse I use.

5 out of 5 eggssimplicity

Pros: it was very simply and easy to assemble the computer, came with all necessary pieces such as screws pins and clips to install everything, best thing about this is affordable and it has decent air flow. not to big not to small has enough room for a bigger gfx card nothing over 300mm

Cons: only real thing I can say as far as case is needs some easy snaps on the right side like it does on the left side.

3 out of 5 eggsFront USB 3.0 ports don't work

Pros: It's a nice looking case, sturdy (metal panels), with side window, quiet fan and plenty of ventilation. Not bad price.

Cons: The front USB 3.0 never worked. At the beginning I thought it was a MOBO issue, but the 3.0 ports in the back work flawlessly. I read another buyer had the same problem, and as him/her I decided to cope with the problem because of the pain in the neck that returning would be.
Also, the front panels that cover the 5-1/4" bays are a pain to work with, if you're not very careful the fall inside. The "quick fix" anchors are not very good and you still need to use the little screws to avoid vibrations on rotating drives. They work fine with SSD and card reader panels.

Other Thoughts: I give it 3 eggs because of the front USB 3.0 ports not working. That was a real bummer. The other downs are quite minor and very livable with.
