2 out of 5 eggsMMMmmm......

Pros: I bought this case for its simplicity, and its stylish look. Upon arrival, it is just that. Several fan location options

Cons: I think they shut down the plant while building this case. Upon unboxing:
1st: Plastic rear fan (no LED fans included) chewed up and burred
2nd: Metal rails in 5 1/2" drive bay bent.
3rd: Front removable drive bay steel was bent (not a biggy, but its brand new)
4th: The I/O shield bracket on the rear of the case is integrated into the expansion slot covers. This whole bracket only has the rear rivets to secure into the case. Missing 7 total rivets!

Other Thoughts: I did not expect much when I purchased this case due to the low cost. I knew I would not have much in cable management, or features but I thought I would at least be paying for a complete assembly. I was extremely disappointed discovering the poor build quality from Raidmax. If the only requirement for a case is four sides and a button, this case could be for you. I am still waiting on more components, hopefully my power supply from Raidmax is more complete than this case.

4 out of 5 eggsHow I got blue LED fan to work

Pros: Case comes with a front blue LED fan but it could not be seen from the outside. Take off both side panels. Then take off (4) screws holding the front panel. Behind the grill for the front fan is installed a black foam air filter which collects dust particles but blocks the blue LED fan from being seen from the outside. I removed the black foam air filter and viola the blue LED front fan can now be seen from the outside. I also installed a blue LED side fan and my case has plenty blue LED's. Later I plan to replace the back fan and add another blue LED fan and this case will be like a beacon of light. I realize that without the air filter dust can enter my case but I intend to clean it every now and then.

Cons: Cable management is difficult because no paneling is available to reroute cables behind the motherboard but it is what it is.

Other Thoughts: I had this case since 2012 and paid $43.49. People have commented to me how nice it looks.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case, terrible shipping

Pros: Great for beginners

Cons: I honestly thought there would be two fans from looking at the picture

Other Thoughts: I don't know what happen shipping but when I opened the package the 5.25" bay instantly broke... Not that important but disappointing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

Pros: Price
Build quality
Aesthetics
Cable Management

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I reviewed this case once already but I don't think it went through. I apologize if this is a duplicate.

I bought this for a budget build not expecting much for the price. I've used this brand in the past so I knew that the quality would suffice. I was pleasantly surprised! Cable management was a lot better than I expected, and you can easily access cpu cooler backplates without having to remove the entire motherboard. Plus the case is downright sturdy! I think some of the negative reviews aren't really justified. This goes above and beyond for a case priced so low. The steel is thick and the side panels don't have any real flex in them at all. The frame is rigid, and the abs plastic front bezel feels pretty solid, not hollow and cheap like you might assume for a case this price.

The description was accurate, and I got all the hardware and literature needed. I'd definitely buy this again. Probably the best deal for a case at this pricing point. Not so radical that it looks like a spaceship or something next to my desk, just kind of modern/custom and a little aggressive.

So just for those of us that might be without a USB 3.0 front panel header on our motherboards, they do make 20 pin USB 3.0 to 9 pin USB 2.0 header adapters. You obviously won't get 3.0 speeds out of that, but it will at least allow you to convert that unused 3.0 front port to a usable USB 2.0. Those adapters typically run you under 10 bucks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: This case has good airflow, option to add water cooling, more fans, easy wire and cable management, and both sides of the case are removable.

Cons: No cons as far as tech and design goes.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case for my build. The only problem I have everything is cramped. That's my fault should have went with a full-atx. I am really amazed with the ventilation on it as I stuffed the case with 4 HDD and 5 gtx 770 video cards and overclocked the cpu to the max, overheating is not a concern at all.

2 out of 5 eggsA little disappointed

Pros: The cable management is decent, a lot better than other cases in this price range I've dealt with. The cooling...if the case had came equipped as advertised. The exhaust fan that was included functions quietly and moves a lot of air. I'm assuming the intake fan would have functioned as such had it actually came equipped as advertised. The cables for the front panel are nicely braided and have adequate length for nice cable management. The pictures here on Newegg are a bit misleading, or just generic, as my cables for the front LEDs and power button are all black (which was a plus for me personally) rather than being red and white. The 5.25 drive bay slots remove and reinstall easily, and without breaking the clips. The CPU backplate cutout is positioned nicely and is of adequate size. I had no problem installing my seidon 120m brackets nor would I with any other cooling solution.

Cons: Front intake fan...NOT included. I quote, "The RAIDMAX Super Hurricane is preinstalled with 1 x 120 mm blue LED front fan and 1 x 120 mm rear fan for efficient ventilation and dissipation." I have no front intake fan. On another note, had the fan been pre-installed, as it was stated, it would only leave room for 2 full sized hard drives to be installed, leaving 2 out of 4 drive bays unusable.

The rear panel PCI slots are very very cheaply made, especially for break aways. The "break points" are entirely too thick. When you bend the flaps to break them out, you will most likely have to re-bend the slot dividers as all of the ones I removed nearly destroyed themselves. The mounting holes for the PCI slots are a night mare and placed in awkward positions. They were also not tapped all the way so getting them started was a little tricky.

The thumb screws to remove the side panels are of horrible quality. They're a plain screw shoved inside a plastic cover. Luckily for me Cooler Master was nice enough to give me several extra with my HAF 932 case, something I did not receive with this case. The screws they did include were not enough to complete the build so I had to break into my stash of leftovers from CM. A lot of the screw holes were not completely tapped. The PCI screw holes were by far the worst.

The top mesh for extra fan installation is very flimsy and causes a weird sort of vibration that can be very annoying without head phones. This caused my radiator to wobble some until I added some steel fender washers to add some strength.

The "manual", if you could even call it that, is pitiful and extremely generic. My case did not come with finger press buttons for 5.25 drive removal/installation, but they are clearly shown in the flip book. There is nothing at all in the manual about removing the front plates for the drives or media readers. The manual shows how to install the front USB cables (1 cable block), but not proper installation of the LEDs and power button (4 cable blocks).

Other Thoughts: All in all this case will get the job done. Luckily I had some extra fans and screws lying around as I would not have been able to run this build without them. The case is very lightweight and the PSU dust filter is a nice feature which most cases lack. Building in this case felt pretty roomy even with my full atx board. I am very disappointed that my case did not come with the front LED intake fan as I feel it takes a lot from the attitude of the case, even if it would remove 2 hard drive slots from use. The exhaust fan runs very quietly and I would like to think the intake fan would have performed as such, thusly adding more salt to my wound. I would recommend this case if you're on a budget, though I would make sure you have extra screws if you're using more than one 5.25 drive, a HDD, and SSD, as which is becoming more and more standard in today's builds. The manual is terrible, so if you're not very experienced then I would suggest watching a couple build videos with this case on youtube first. I would recommend this case to friends, but I would caution them to purchase extra screws and to check the case for its front intake fan before they proceed.

I hope this review wasn't too harsh and doesn't scare people away from it's purchase, but I do hope that Raidmax reads this and corrects their QA issues. The screw holes I can look past, as they could have just been coated in paint, but missing 1 of the 2 fans is inexcusable.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap and works

Cons: Highly susceptible to dust with multiple points of entry if fans aren't installed on top and side.

Other Thoughts: Bought 3 for work because they were cheap and trying to keep costs down. All front ports work properly and the screw alignments were proper in all of them. One case was jammed a bit and had to give it a good tug to get the side panel off.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good case

Pros: Sturdy case which delivers exactly what it advertises. If you pay attention that is. I mean, a LOT of people are complaining about the lack of purple light when, if you actually LOOK at the picture of the case with the purple lighting, you can see they placed a single purple LED inside the case. Nowhere in the description does it say it lights up purple.

It is steel, as advertised.
It has a bottom mounted psu, as advertised.
It is black inside and out, as advertised.
Basically, if you read the description, that's what you get.

Cons: The manufacturers could have put a lot more thought into how the front panel attaches to the case. The four tiny screws are difficult to see and a real pain in the neck when compared to the easy-to-remove latches many cases at this price point come with. Granted, once you're done with your build, you won't be removing the front panel that often, so this was only worth deducting one egg.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrid Pile of (Flaming) Garbage

Pros: N/A

Cons: Ahh yes, my $300 video card is fried, my $250 mobo is bad, and I am stuck with the bill.
All due to a fault in the front panel of this lovely raidmax case... It somehow shorted
out and shot flames LITERALLY out of the front panel connector on the MOBO where the case
plugs in and scorched the end of the video card (frying it) and the MOBO shows no video
any longer through ANY type of output, onboard, 3 different video cards (in all 3 pci-e slots)
and a USB to dvi external video card. Nada, toast, and raidmax's solution, " It was not our
case which caused this issue, but we can send you the front panel replacement board. After
many contacts with their support (in some foreign country where you can understand nothing), and
6months later, still no replacement front panel board, and I am stuck with a bill for over $620
to replace the case, video card, and mobo... Needless to say Raidmax will NEVER BE IN MY STORE AGAIN.

Other Thoughts: If only cursing were allowed...
