3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good, easy wiring.

Cons: Kind of small, couldn't fit Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. Only comes with one fan which is awful.

3 out of 5 eggsAeolus - deity of soft whispers

Pros: Looks kind of cool. Seemed to have lots of air flow(see cons). Fits large cards. Easily fit my two MSI HD6970 Lightnings (12" cards). Quiet.

Cons: 1.5 yr later, I notice the fans are kind of weak. Placing a piece of paper over the fans barely moves it. Not even enough to blow it off the case. Nor does it suck the paper towards the case if you hold the paper right in front of it. Not sure if the fans are tired or what, but definitly not the deity of wind (Newegg filters that other word..strange). -1 Egg for the fan issue.

I ended up moving my HD6970s to another case after experiencing artifacts at stock speeds. No more artifacts after that.

Does not fully utilize the USB3 header. Why only one USB 3 port when the header supports 2? Same goes for USB 2. There is enough room at the top of the case to easily add 2 more USB ports. -1 Egg

Other Thoughts: Bought else where because at the time wasn't sure NewEgg was shipping the V3 model, which had 1 USB 3 and came with 4 fans (1 front, 2 top, 1 back). I added the 5th to front. Debating now wither to replace the 4 original fans and add a fan controller or just get a whole new case for just a bit more money. Hard decision because I like the case dispite its problems.

2 out of 5 eggsNice but...

Pros: Enough room to fit every components easily and fit almost any graphics card; really easy to work on it, without forgetting the nice look.

Cons: First it took me some time to figure there is some screws locking the top bezel in place.
Second, The stand off holes are terrible, every stand off can be screwe|d endlessly.
Third, this case top fan slot are almost impossible to fill, the mounting screws don't came with the case and I went to almost every computer store and renovation store looking for the right screws, result: no chance so far. (Really frustrating)

4 out of 5 eggsRaidmax Aeolus

Pros: -Great options and quality for the price
-Smoked side window with fan slot
-Black/blue theme
-PLENTY of room for super long graphic cards
-Great airflow
-Stock fan works very well

Cons: This was my first case and I've owned it for over a year now but I found its little flaws:
-The fins on the side window fan mount make a wine noise so go for a quiet fan if you use it
-Can't remove hdd bay
-Can't remove stock fan (originally wanted to do a red theme but couldnt)
-No rubber on bottom stands, which is an easy fix but should be a standard by now
-NO FRONT INTAKE DUST FILTERS!!! If my computer was upstairs it would be fine but in my basement it gets really dusty really fast
-Not a whole lot of room for cable management. You have to utilize the space in the extended "C" shape on the side panel. I HIGHLY recommend a fully modular psu with flat cables or get a individual sleeved cable kit. You can get by with regular cables but it takes a little extra time, patience, and elbow grease to get it to work.

Other Thoughts: I'm still giving this case 4 eggs because for my first case and my budget at the time it was perfect but now that I've had it for a while I know what I really need. Some of the cons were just my opinions but the dust filter and cable management can be a problem. If your not too worried about dust or don't have a lot of dust in your home and you have a psu with flat or individual sleeved cables, this is the case to buy!

3 out of 5 eggsServes its purpose

Pros: under a hundred bucks and has plenty of room for any video card. GTX 770 windforce, fits nicely. The back panel is beveled for more room to run cables.

Cons: The HDD bay is flimsy and only one fan.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks great and good design but...

Pros: First PC build. Plenty of room. Nice design all around. Extra room for long graphics cards, power supply on the bottom, great airflow, and looks great.

Cons: Expect to spend more money on fans, as this only comes with one, so add that to the cost.

More importantly however, the top fan mounts have an oddly sized hole. Standard fan screws are bigger than the plastic boss. This totally threw me for a loop and I had to go to a hardware store to find screws that fit.

Not using standard hardware knocked off a star for me, as although you have to buy additional fans, only getting one is in the product specs.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Roomy inside, tool free setup, space for adding a large number of fans, the front looks pretty good considering the price, speaking of price this was very cheap in comparison to other cases that offered as many fan supports

Cons: The only cons are the front has a little extra flare on the outside face that can keep it from fitting in tight spots in desks, not an issue for me and in all actuality you shouldn't have a pc in a spot to tightly confined for proper air flow. The other con is it does take a little fanagling with the top fans too keep them from falling, but once done they are pretty secure. Neither of these deserve egg reductions in my point of view due to the omparison of other cases in this price class.

Other Thoughts: I replaced an $100 case with this due to airflow issues and now I have more than adequate air flow . I was worried at first, but I have been very happy with my decision. I think this case stands out in its price group. Finding a case this light made of roughly nice materials looking as good as it does with as many fan mounts as it has is usually very tough

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value, Not For Everyone

Pros: Amazing airflow
Great cable management
Removable HDD Cages
Looks Great
Efficient Design
Sturdy Construction

Cons: I have only one.
They do not make it clear enough that you are completely unable to mount a radiator anywhere but the rear exhaust and the side panel. They should really make that more clear one of the reasons I bought this case was to put a 240 rad on the top but I still love this case

Other Thoughts: All in all this case is great. I do have plans to do a custom loop water cooling setup later on and i will need a new case then but for an air cooled setup or one with a single 120mm closed loop this case is ideal.

3 out of 5 eggsEhhh Its great

Pros: Great, love the blue LED and the design, O.K material that was used on the Computer. Came with alot of bolts and other parts. Really nice for a Budget case.

Cons: Did Not Include The 2 Fans so I had to IMPROVISE and did not receive a 2nd Docking Bay for drives AS I SAW IN THE NEWEGG VIDEO, I had to hot glue the 2 LED fans I had to the top of the case, harder than it seems.(sorry for caps)

Other Thoughts: I love it alot just that they did not include some parts I really needed. Great!
