4 out of 5 eggsNot A Bad Case

Pros: - Compact
- Lots of room for expansion
- Aesthetically pleasing

Cons: - Main case material is somewhat flimsy
- Front case fan is excessively loud

Other Thoughts: I purchased this case to use for my first gaming rig back in 2011 for about $50. I enjoy the sleek design of the front of the case as well as the large number of expansion slots on the inside. It's a decent case, but due to certain circumstances, I often transported it from place to place resulting in a bit of wear, but nothing to bad. It has held together quite well for two years, and upon upgrading to another case, I am currently using this one for another build for a friend of mine. It still looks almost like new!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent for the Price

Pros: Inexpensive, Plenty of inside space for a mid-tower, Motherboard fit comfortably

Cons: Power supply did not quite fit, the threads for the screws in the back-plane were messed up, front fan is not very good (does not move much air)

Other Thoughts: It seemed like the top of the case where the power supply mounts, was about 1/8 in too short. I struggled to get the power supply in place and I ended up slightly bending the flange around the back of the case when I tightened down the screws to mount the power supply. However, this did not seem to cause any other major issues.

The screw holes on the back-plane where the stand-off screws for the motherboard go were kind of messed up. It was almost like the screw holes were threaded and then painted over. I had to find a screw with a similar pitch and pre-thread the screw holes before the stand-off screws would tighten all the way down.

The fan on the front of the case is pretty much useless... I would suggest buying another fan if you are set on this case.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent cheap case

Pros: This is a cheap case that will work well enough for most people. Seems like I can fit anything I need in it and the tool-less hardware makes install a breeze.

Cons: My biggest grip is the metal bends very easy probably because it is so thin. I had to push on the back of the motherboard tray of the case. Also front fan is basically worthless so replace asap with another fan, while you are there take out that foam for better air flow.

Other Thoughts: This case comes with two 80mm fans and one 120mm fan in front. You may need to remove the side fan to fit your cpu cooler (if you have a larger one like I do). The rear of the case doesn't have room for a 120mm fan, however it looks like it take a fan in between sizes? Anyways I bought this case to throw a pc together from spare parts I had laying around.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, bad front fan.

Pros: This case looks great and works great. The tool-less design is really easy to use. Excellent air flow.

Cons: Front fan failed within one month. Save your self some trouble and replace it with a good rated blue LED 120mm case fan and save your self some future trouble. The fan isn't that hard to replace. Case covers are flimsy, but as long as your not going to be kicking it in the side it will be fine.

Other Thoughts: Black inside looks good, but it is hard to see while putting everything together. Use a good light, I use a led headlight while working.

3 out of 5 eggsNot great for gaming

Pros: looks really cool with pretty good airflow.

Cons: If you install a large modern graphics card you'll have difficulty getting to the harddrives as these two areas have less than an inch of clearance.

Other Thoughts: If you plan to use the integrated graphics on your motherboard this is a great case. Be aware that if your aftermarket graphics card requires a power connection that you may have issues plugging it in with the placement of the harddrive cage in this case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood But Cheap front fan.

Pros: Looks great, Lots of space, tool-less works well. Great air flow.

Cons: Front fan failed within one year. Side fan and rear fan still work well after 2 years.

Other Thoughts: Can't beat the value, just buy a quality 120mm front fan and wait for yours to fail then replace.

3 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: Looks nice
Lots of fans
Lots of drive bays
Bought it on sale

Cons: Low power fans (I don't care how quiet they are, I want my rig kept cool)
Somewhat hard to install disc drive
Easy locking doesn't work that well

Other Thoughts: Didn't fit my ATX motherboard all that well, I still have a screw that won't go in.

Overall it was enough to suit my needs. Certainly not bad enough to make me return it or buy a new one, but not the greatest either.

4 out of 5 eggsBudget Case

Pros: -Simple to install all components, due to the tool-less install

-Both side covers came off real easy once the thumb screws were removed (not like other reviews said in the past, perhaps it's been fixed)

-Gloss black finish looks nicer than a flat black plain computer case

-flat black interior with basic cable management (they can be shoved behind the hard drive rack or optical rack.

-had plenty of room for my violet 3.02 mobo (mid) and all components including a radeon HD6870 and nothing is in contact with eachother

-Cheapest case I could find with a side window

-Front grilled fan looks like a jet turbine (cool)

-Back panel is removable to actually screw the drives down on the opposite side (needs to be done or they wobble)

-The grill says "typhoon" and can be turned sideways to lay the pc on its side, but there are no options inside to mount the hdd or optical drives sideways to make it an "htpc" style case. So close.

Cons: AESTHETICALLY:

1. Side window is blue tinted, which would be odd if you ever wanted different color LED's in the case, they'd all have a blue tint added to them.

2. Fan LED is darkened by the filter; should have had brighter LED's

3. You can see the power supply through the window, and just a corner of it. It doesn't really make sense; I can see an upside-down "DYN" through the window on it and that's it- Detracts from overall look.

MECHANICALLY:

1. The inside panel the MOBO mounts to is very flimsy and wobbles when you screw the board into it. Once the board is mounted though it seems sturdy enough to stay put.

2. The expansion slots are knock-out and can not be put back if you change your setup.

3. There are no pins to hold the drives on the opposite side, so you can not really just screw the tab into the drive and go, it will flop around. This is remedied by taking off the back panel and putting a couple screws in the opposite side.

4. Side fan is intake? -

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a cooler master low profile case. People say there is no room in the typhoon for cooling and parts, but I must say it is a huge upgrade over the C.M. All the components fit in without touching. My old case had a very silly way of dealing with replacing parts or upgrading that involved dissasembling the entire PC to change anything. I really enjoy this case, and it has everything I need for my HTPC/ light gaming rig. I got the case at noon, and it is now 2pm, and I'm using the PC I rebuilt now - very quick install. For the ~$50.00 I paid, I'm quite satisfied, and would buy it again if I had a need for it.

Inside I am running a:
HP Violet 3.02 Motherboard
w/ AMD athlon II x 4 620
8 gig corsair RAM setup
stock case fans
600w Cooler master PSU
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD6870
2 x 640 gig WD hdd

and it all fits nicely with plenty of airspace
