4 out of 5 eggsNot a micro ATX case

Pros: Large case with lots of room. Nice no screw drive mounting system. Quiet fans. long leads from front panel USB/audio. The case I was going to use had leads too short to make it to the rear of the case where the mobo connections were.

Cons: None so far. I built the box in an evening and it powered right up.

Other Thoughts: I registered the rebate online and will send the form and UPC tomorrow. I hope I don't have trouble like so many others have had.

3 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work well with SSDs

Pros: I bought this case for a budget build and to play around with some case mods. It was $20 after rebate, so I didn't mind drilling holes for two more case fans on the top and bottom. I also cut out a hole for a acrylic side panel to the left of the HDD door and placed two 80mm fans in the side panel in front of the CPU. It was easy to modify this case, which is what I was looking for.

Cons: The 2 drive bay with the sata connectors built in didn't play well with my SSD. I tried three difference bay adapters; Mushkin, OCZ and the dual Silverstone one. None of them allows the SATA connection to line up properly, defeating the whole purpose of that HDD door on the outside of the case. I ended up using the other 2 drive bay without the sata connectors built in.

The airflow and temperatures in the case was pretty bad before I cut the holes for the extra fans. The HHD door is really loud when you open and close it. The 3.5" bay covers don't fit properly and if you accidentally put any pressure on them, they will depress into the case so they are no longer straight. The case came with no instructions which could be a problem for someone building their first computer.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for a budget build at $20 but I would be disappointed if I paid more than that.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Design, Room & RaidMax Service. .

Pros: A lot of flexibility and the sliding door / slide-in for Sata Drives is useful. Good size and room throughout the box. Bought to be a server because of the slide-in HDD capability but ended up using it for my primary high-perfomance desktop. Airflow is good as multiple fans (120mm) have a front to rear airflow that encompasses the memory & cpu locations.

Cons: Rear 120 mm Fan died after 3 months (see other thoughts). Blue lights. Fancy lights aren't really of any benefit and I had to switch out two card readers until I got one that had a blue light to match the rest of the case.

Other Thoughts: A simple email contact to Raidmax and they sent out a new 120mm Fan with no questions asked within a couple of days. That kind of service is what will make me look at RaidMax for my next box.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't expect rebate

Pros: Very nice looking case, has lots of cool features. I'd love to have one for the advertised $15 after rebate.

Cons: This company doesn't honor their rebates. I got taken for a ride twice, and spent months requesting status updates, with no response.

Other Thoughts: They are presently offering a $40 rebate. I would definitely buy this case if I believed they would send me the rebate, but they won't. They might as well advertise it as "free after rebate", because they don't send the money anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the Price

Pros: Easy to work with. Had no problem using the HDD screwless mounting solution or the DVD screwless mounting solution.

Cons: My Case came with one of the green wires for the front panel audio cut at the end where the clip for the motherboard is. I was able to use the Legacy audio but no the HD Audio for the front.

Other Thoughts: It was very easy to build with. My Radeon 6850 fit ok. I think is a good budget case.

1 out of 5 eggsDONT TRUST RAIDMAX

Pros: Great Case, great build quality.

Cons: DO NOT BUY RAIDMAX PRODUCTS FOR REBATES

Raidmax's rebate center is a black hole

Violates California law repeatedly

after registering for your rebate you status will be pending, when they receive your documents it will switch to approved.
Per California law as a California based company they are required to mail the check within a maximum of 60 days upon reciept of documntation. No such luck with RAIDMAX.

RE: Rebate number NE12030693 Sorry to anyone else who got conned I don't know why business continue to sell products by companies like this.

Other Thoughts: 22735. A company that offers a consumer rebate shall allow a
minimum of 30 days from the date the consumer purchases the product,
or becomes eligible for the rebate pursuant to subdivision (b) of
Section 22736, for the consumer to submit the rebate request.
22736. A company shall mail the rebate check or transmit the
rebate funds to the consumer or fulfill the terms of the rebate offer
within the same number of days provided to the consumer to submit
the rebate request pursuant to Section 22735, but in no event later
than 60 days from either of the following events as applicable:
(a) Upon receipt of a consumer rebate request meeting the terms
and conditions of the rebate offer, to the extent permitted by this
chapter and as disclosed at the time of purchase.

3 out of 5 eggsSure, I'd buy it again, but...

Pros: Thumbscrews, fans, accessible drive bays. Fast drive installation brackets*

Cons: Rebate was only 15 days - missed it. Plenty of what appears to be air filter foam on the front.. but a giant gaping hole in the bottom of the face, so I'm not sure if that was the point.

The garage door on the side is noisy.

Cable management was a challenge.

Of the side insert components, the PCIE stabilizer's clips are just undersized enough that they slip out when pressed against the card... totally ineffective. Your graphics card is on its own. That said, my honkin 560 ti seems ok with out it...

The drive mounting equipment didn't play nicely with my 2.5" SSDs/adapters. More below.

Other Thoughts: I had a tough time finding a suitable place to put my two SSDs. the case comes with two components that hold a pair of drives each and which slide out of the case for access. One of these has a PCB at the bottom that I'm sure works fine for a normal sized drive, such that you can just slide the SATA drive in and it will make the data/power connections.
I'm not sure who's fault it is, but the mushkin 2.5" drive with its 3.5" adapter does not slide into the connector - it misses by 2mm or so. Also, the upper 3.5" bays in the case, I'm sure, hold a standard 3.5" drive fine, but the mushkin's SSD adapter is not held steady using their case architecture - I was forced to use a screw on the back side. And with some of the delicate SATA connectors on SSDs, it's easy to ask for a little more room for gentler cable routes.

Overall a good case, but not quite perfect for 2.5" SSDs - at least, not with mushkin's adapters.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Screw-less design
Good passive airflow from mesh and brackets
Rail slide tech.

Cons: No cable management
No CPU cut-out for after market coolers
Can only support two case fans

Other Thoughts: I prefer bottom mounted PSU's. I got this on sale for about $12 after rebate and coupon. Just got my rebate from Raidmax after about three months. Would recommend this case for a budget build.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: way more room than more original order, which was horrible (stay away from apevia).

I like the modern black look with the blue lights.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a power supply with lots connections because this case has two fans and a 4 pin slot for the hdd swap area.
