5 out of 5 eggsexcellent

Pros: First for first time builders it is good. i used it my first time and i loved it. U dont need big parts so i fit all mine in fine. the rebate got sent in fast and the case came in 1 day before it was supposed to. but if u want big parts then go for a full tower. If ur a first then start small with this. i love this and the liquid cooling system definately qill buy more.

Cons: none. thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for a beginner

Pros: This case is good for a first build. It's pretty, It has enough room for everything, a cool window so you can watch your internal components as they work, and great support for cooling. A nice silent fan is included in the back. Very durable and well built with very satisfying front panel buttons.

Cons: Could be much flashier. When all's said and done, there's not much room in here. Cable management will also be very hard and it's inevitable that you'll just leave a big bundle of cables sitting at the bottom. Only comes with enough drive bay clips to hold two of each kind.

Other Thoughts: Great case for a first build, working fine for mine. Make sure you have a big desk though.

Less than a millimeter's clearance for a tall fan like the Hyper 212. Be careful with the measurements.

2 out of 5 eggsConcealed Damage

Pros: Looks nice, nice price for a budget machine.

Cons: Damage on the back base where the power supply would sit. This caused the power supply to not fit in the mounts. The frame was bent upwards, making the back to "legs" on the base curve inward.

Other Thoughts: This has been RMA'd and the RMA is approved. I will update this review if/when I get a good replacement and get to really try this case out.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsPoor poor cooling, not very big for "mid-tower"

Pros: It's a very nice looking case.
Easy to put drives in.

Cons: My video card barely fit in the case, its almost touched the drive bays. (Radeon 7870)
Poor wire management, it's a freaking mess.
Poor VERY poor cooling. It is no way effective as advertised on the page, it begs for more case fans.
USB 3.0 cord doesn't plug into the USB 3.0 port on my Crosshair V formula Z motherboard correctly, so I have one USB port in the front.

Other Thoughts: I should have learned when I bought a raidmax case before. I can't play anything without my computer sounding like a jet engine, and overheating. I'm going to have to spend even more to get more fans, and liquid cooling because of this. Avoid raidmax if you like gaming cases, they are the worst. Go with antec or corsair.

3 out of 5 eggsIt makes my brother happy, that's all that counts.

Pros: This case visually looks pretty attractive in person. I wouldn't buy it personally, but for my brother's build he was very pleased. The window is a nice plus, IF you can manage the cables all right. The size is perfect for the space in which me and my brother's room offers.

Cons: There were a lot of grievances with this build, I won't lie. First of all, unfortunately as a lot of other customers have had to experience, I did not receive the 120mm front fan as advertised, which was annoying to say the least. As me and my brother had planned before purchasing the case we actually bought a spare fan, so we weren't at a total loss. At 60$ you'd expect Raidmax to do better.
Second, The cable management is no where close to expected. there's about a quarter inch of space behind the Mobo tray, so only the PCI-e cables and smaller stuff could fit back there. The cutout for the 8 pin supplemental CPU power was also poorly located and was not used.
Third, cooling is sparse, even if we had the 120mm front fan. I'd expect there to be a top fan slot, at least one or two, but there is just a flat, painted top which ultimately is unused space.
Lastly, I've been having trouble with the front panel. Either one USB port doesn't work or the other, and they are all installed to the right slots, it's a puzzler.

Other Thoughts: Overall this build was indeed frustrating. At the price point this case lacks a bit. Do not buy this case if you want performance over aesthetics, because this case has the looks but lacks the necessities cases like the HAF 912 (which costs the same) got right.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's 'OK'

Pros: Styling.
Build quality reflects the price, but I'd say this is a Pro because I've seen cheaper quality cases for the same price if not more.
Comes with stand-off's mounted as well as extras; hardware included and painted to match the inside of the case.
PSU mounted on bottom a huge plus!

Cons: Cable management behind mobo is non-existent; nice try.
'3-day' select shipping actually took +a week; this isn't Newegg's fault though. Because the case is shipped from Raidmax, I didn't receive the case as quick as I normally receive other orders.
Biggest con is; MY CASE DID NOT INCLUDE THE FRONT 120MM LED FAN. At $15 bucks less I would understand but at this price, I expect to have what I paid for.

Other Thoughts: This is my first and last piece of equipment from Raidmax. I was hoping to buy more of their products but I've already been disappointed once.
