4 out of 5 eggsBought as an upgrade, kept as a donor.

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: *Ventilation holes in the top help to keep hot air from building up near the CPU.
*Tower is lightweight, yet feels quite durable.
*Having the PSU slot on the bottom helps the case to sit better on a desk. Feels more secure.

Cons: *Front panel is hard to remove for cleaning.
*The PSU filter is not as easy to remove as a previous version of the same case.
*While the tool-less installation tabs on the one side work great, the hard drive doesn't feel as secure as it does when I add screws to the other side. Case could use tool-less tabs on the other side, even ones that aren't as "pretty".

Other Thoughts: I bought this tower as an upgrade to the current one I have, which is an older version of the same case. I didn't think to check the dimensions, and this tower is an inch smaller, so my mesh side doesn't fit. I ended up parting the tower and using them in my older case. The parts fit just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the Price.

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case was small enough for the area I was going to put it in. Everything in the case works. Comes with a case fan.

Cons: Cable management could be easier if you don't have ribbon style cables. The plastic window is a little to wide depending on the cooler size you're planing to use. Getting a front fan in is a little difficult.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a good case, tool-less mounts worked perfectly for CD, HD, and SSD. It was easy to work with and had plenty of space to work in. I liked the location of the front USB ports and they work great.

Cons: This is made of a thin metal and I expect it cold be dented pretty easily but it has held up very well so far. This thinner metal is very much the standard for most cases on the market and it was not a surprise to me. Over all its a great case and I would buy it again.

Other Thoughts: This case is very very well vented and has a lot of upgrade options for everything from water cooling to fan mounts everywhere. I have stuck with the stock fan because I like it very quiet and have not had any kind of a heat issue every when playing with overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case!

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: For the retail and sale price, this is the case to get. I was on a tight budget and wanted to get a cheap case, but wanted something that could fit a good deal of fans in practical locations. This ended up fitting the bill perfectly.

The case is very stylish with a matte black finish on the metal and the plastic. It has one USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, and HD audio mic and headphone jack on the top. The ports are firm and don't feel like they are going to break any time soon. The shielding for the cables are pretty thick. As we speak, I'm listening to music on my Turtle Beach's and there is no ground interference. Unfortunately, my mobo does not have a USB 3.0 header so I'm unable to test it, but I'm sure it's built just as sturdy as the 2.0 port.

The front of the case has these quick release front plates for the 5.25" bays which are nice. Be a little careful when you removing them as they are nice and snug to prevent vibration. The case does have foam behind each of the front plates and where the intake fan would go. The foam helps with noise a little, and there is still good airflow for my 77CFM Arctic F12.

The side window is lightly smoked, and the panel is fairly sturdy for the price. The back panel is very sturdy considering it has the raised areas for some cable management. The paint is pretty good considering I have slid it around on a table here and there when I was putting it together and there isn't any scratchmarks. I love how every inch of it is painted; no bare metal anywhere.

The tool-less bays are awesome! I have my CD Drive and HDD using these and they keep them in place and I have little to no movement.

The case does come with motherboard screws, stand-offs, and screws for your bays. It even has some 4" 15lb. tensile strength cable ties and a few stick-on cable guides. All of this stuff is black to match the case. I bought some extra screws and didn't have to use any.

This has room to fit 2 120mm fans on the top, or 1 140mm fan on top. 1 120mm fan in the rear, on the side, and on the front.

This can fit up to a 160mm tall CPU cooler, which means that my CM Hyper 212 EVO fit nicely. I was still able to put the side fan on too with no clearance issues. It looks like you can put a radiator at the top (up to a 240), but it would have to be a slim design with low profile fans. There is maybe 35-40mm of clearance before I would run into problems.

If you are going to be doing a blue build, this is perfect since it is strictly black and blue.

Cons: Not enough to knock off an egg in my opinion, but here they are:

There is no extra foam to place with the fan on the side or top. I think it would have been nice to have had some extra foam in case you were going to install fans in those areas.

The front panel is s*rewed (really Newegg?) into the frame, and the screws are kind of a pain to get to. There are two on either side of the case (top and bottom). The measly instructions that it came with did not tell you how to take it off.

It looks like you have quite a bit of room in the back to hide your cables, but you really don't. There is NO extra space between the motherboard tray and the back panel. So the raised area is all the room you have. I would highly recommend to use at least a semi-modular PSU. I have a Corsair GS600 and I had to practically lay on the case just to get the panel back on after I did my cable management. If I didn't have 2 molex cables, most of a SATA cable, and an extra PCI-E cable; I would have been OK.

Like most cases in the price range, the PCI slots are not reusable. So make sure you know which ones you have to pop off, or you will have to get some black duct tape to put them back on (and that will kind of bad since the PCI slots are vented).

Some people may not like it, but the side panel is kind of flimsy. Once it is on the case though it is plenty sturdy. The acrylic window does scratch, so keep the plastic on it until you are done putting everything in it.

The tool-less clips are only on the one side. The did give you screws for the other side.

There is only one fan (exhaust). I never hooked this fan up as I bought my own so I don't know how it performs. I would imagine it's a 1,000RPM 40CFM fan. I has a molex connector and a 3-pin connector so you can use it as either. Plus the cable is sleeved in black. I would recommend using it as a side fan if you decide to get other fans.

Other Thoughts: The cons I have there are some things that are a little irritating, but obviously not enough to take off any eggs. I bought this when it was on sale for 49.99 and free shipping (I have Newegg Premium). For 59.99 I think this case is still worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Product for a simple install

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lightweight , Nice blue colored Hard drive clips inside the case ,
Price is right for a simple build.

Cons: One thing i did not like about the case is that there is no room at the top to install a Radiator, It can be done by cutting out a template to fit the radiator on top to fit the fans from up underneath, cheap metal, Very flimsy side panel, tinted side panel just does not look good.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone who would like to build a mid tower computer but not for liquid cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy I got it

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Large, roomy and lots of internal space. Sturdy. Durable. Looks like i paid more for it than it is. Looks and feels like high quality. Comes with lots of ties

Cons: Some crooked rivets. Some screw holes are too small for the mount posts I was given. Wire mesh on the bottom keeps coming off. Plastic siding scratches easily. Fingerprints show easily. Front panel came with a dent in it.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am happy with the case. Most of the cons are minor and not worth returning it for. I noticed a few internal rivets that were crooked so they are permanently stuck like that. 3 of the motherboard mount screws did not come already installed and when I tried to screw them in myself I had a hard time. after about 30 minutes of frustration I looked closely at the back wall and noticed the holes for them were too small to put in the 3 mount posts so I just left them out. Had no choice.

The plastic siding had scratches and just seems to be regular plastic but the scratches were small but I just noticed them there. Was a little disappointed in that. I haven't even had the case 24 hours yet and I noticed right out the box the front mesh had a slight dent in it. Again something minor that I care not to send it all back for but if I look at the case to the side, I can see the slight indentation.

Could fit my Coolmaster 212 EVO just barely.

Power and hard drive LEDs are VERY bright! The power LED is green and the hard drive LED is red. The red hard drive LED is very very bright.

As I said overall the case is awesome and for only $20, it can't be beat with the quality, sturdy design and working space.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid case with a few quirks

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of room for expansion, fans, solid construction for a plastic/metal mix. The expanded right side is nice for cable management.

Cons: Front panel. Instead of the traditional slot method the front panel is attached via 4 screws in rather awkward positions. Not the end of the world, but a bit frustrating if you like to regularly clean your dust filter. Not sure the bottom dust filter is terribly useful either. The tool-less system is nice but there are some vibration issues. Also not too crazy about the non-replaceable expansion slot covers as once removed they're done.

Other Thoughts: Good case for a basic/medium build. Overall pretty solid, with a few quibbles/drawbacks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the $

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great looking case - tasteful design that showcases your hard work without shouting.

Build quality is much better than similarly priced cases I've purchased in the past. I like the bottom psu fan filter included.

Plenty of room for my standard ATX mobo and EVGA GTX 760 video card

Cons: only comes with one fan in the back but I knew that going into the purchase. Mounting my own 120mm fan in the front was a little bit of a pain since the screw holes in the case are too big. Had to get a little creative but made it work

Other Thoughts: wish I could utilize the USB 3.0 port on the front of case... My mobo only has USB 2.0

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality for a great price!

This review is from: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: For the cost, this case can not be beaten. It has nice space for both hardware and for additional fans. I fit a giant MSI GTX 760 HAWK in there, even though it took a little wiggling around to fit it past the main support for the drives. It also has excellent airflow when the top fans are configured to pull air out of the case and the others pull it in. It looks nice and sleek too!

I would not recommend this case for a high end build for someone wanting more flashiness, but I would say it's the best choice for a budget build or a more subdued looking machine. I got it on sale during the holidays and had a nice rebate too (only cost me fifteen dollars!!!).

Cons: Only comes with one fan, but for the price I guess it's excusable. Also only has one dust "filter," though it seems quite cheap and I'm not sure it filters small particles. The "tool-less" aspect leaves drives loose and able to make an audible vibration, so I used a screw to hold them firm. The front fans are difficult to install due to a tricky front panel removal process.

Other Thoughts: I'm not taking any points off for the cons because of the price I paid for the case. Even if I payed the full price offered on NewEgg, I would still not complain about the issues for the price. This is probably the best case you can buy in this price point if you're looking for sleek and quiet good looks.
