4 out of 5 eggsVery good with a few exceptions...

Pros: Very sturdy, good layout design, lots of room (great for those long video cards), looks good/doesn't look ridiculous.

Cons: Mine came without any fans... to which this may be normal but after buying from Cooler Master for so long expected the fans to be part of deal.

The HDD toolless rails are also a bit lacking, since they only have studs at the far ends. I bought some adapters for SSDs and had to 'modify' the rails to accomodate the adapters. Chieftec needs to make some rails that are a little more adaptable to different designs.

Other Thoughts: Overall I really like this case for its mid-tower size but really roomy on the inside... not many manufacturers do this, and/or not for the price. Also forgot to mention the space on the backside of the mobo, just enough room to take off the side panel and store unneeded PSU cables. Cable management is also much easier in this case with all the room... work out those little problems I mentioned and this case is golden.

5 out of 5 eggsGood EATX Case

Pros: Great price for a EATX case. Solid construction. Easy to open and maintain tooless design. Drives can be mounted in seconds without a screw driver. Plenty of room for 6 x 3.5 inch drives as well as additional chassis and hard drive fans.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As another reviewer mentions, it would be best to use angled sata data and power connectors because the case is a bit narrow for using straight connectors. However, I am using straight connectors without any real problems. Since the side door swings open and closed, it can still be closed with out stagging on the straight cables. With straight cables, they become a bit bent/bunched but not enough to cause any damage to the cables.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Plenty of room inside, excellent price for an EATX case. Nice hard drive mounts with easy access to drives. All required hardware included, easy to open, plentu of ventilation.

Cons: Not much wrong here.. would have been nice to have rubber caps on the feet to protect the surface it's on, but that's a pretty minor problem, all things considered.

Other Thoughts: Looks pretty nice - not too fancy though. Seems well built.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Very solid and sturdy. Metal case you can stand on. I like the looks. I has a front panel with audio, usb and firewire. Holds 6 hard drives. Provides fan cooling from the side to cool the hard drives. This is the 4th Chieftec case I own. IMO these are the best PC cases made. I only purchase other brand names when I build for people. I have purchased many brands and these are the best. Chieftec offers many types of cases on thier web site, but you can't buy them in the US.

Cons: Notice the hard drives are placed from the side. Connecting the power and data cable does not leave much space to put the cover back on. I used L-shaped power wires and L-shaped sata cable connector.

Other Thoughts: The fan sizes are 92mm and 120mm. I was not used to using such a large fan (120). Not a pro or con, just different for me. Moves alot of air.
