5 out of 5 eggsSolid with few flaws

Pros: Nice rounded edges, very roomy, interesting cross-bar for additional airflow, comes with 3 fans, price.

The case comes with nice sliders for the hard drive bay, making installation and removal very easy. It leaves more room for cables and airflow, which is great. The drive bay doors pop out easily and install easily with the plastic locking sliders. The PCI locks are a little more challenging and are very prone to breaking though (see below).

The small instruction manual comes with adequate explanations and helpful pictures. Front buttons feel solid and light up, and the side ports are pretty standard but functional.

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but the crossbar is a bit strange if you've not seen one before. I ended up using my fans in the rear, front, and side. I may buy one more later on to install on the bar, which I currently have removed.

The plastic locks on the PCI bays are very cheap, and if you don't take a moment to understand how they open, you will easily break them. You can take them off entirely and use a good ole screw, which I had to do since I may have jumped the gun and broke two of the locks...

You could say the weight is a con, as it is not a light nor small case. However, I guess you could also say that it cost money at all, which is a con of sorts.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with this case. Along with a Raidmax modular 730W power supply, this is probably the cleanest looking build I've put together. Good for the price, and apparently I bought just in time as I see Newegg now has this item deactivated.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Case, good price

Pros: Large case with good room for airflow. The fan bar in the middle is nice, makes setting up the case easy. The HDD racks face towards the side which makes HDD removal easy - and it doesn't interfere with monster graphics cards. Smooth edges the toolless snaps are adequate.

Cons: Wish the interior was painted, fixed that with a can of spray paint though. Toolless components feel cheap, have not broke yet but I have the feeling it is a matter of time. Only reason not a 5egg was two of the case fans were DOA. Didn't really care as I was going to replace them with aftermarket fans anyways.

Other Thoughts: I looked in the 0-50 price range for a case, and this was the winner. I was very selective and overall happy with this case. Solid construction and it does what I needed it to.

5 out of 5 eggsI love your box

Pros: Awesome air-flow. AMD 965 Black running at 35c on the stock cooler (I can wait to see what an aftermarket CPU sink can do).
Good size overall. Small enough to fit in my Depot-brand computer desk.
Supplied fans run quiet.

Cons: Sheet mettle is sharp! -as with ALL computer cases, be careful! I slipped while installing my fan controller (in the 3.5 bays) and cut my thumb clean-through the nail and into the tip. No stitches, but it hurt like hell for a while.

It's a little tight inside with my big MSI 790 board, but my original price-point MoBo fit perfectly. -Make sure to check your specs.

Plan on removing the middle fan bracket 75% of the times you have to make hardware changes. It's a royal PITA, but worth it IMO.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. I fits my gaming hardware w/o looking like a 10-ton circus gorilla (IE; every other "gaming" case available)

It can be tedious to work with at times, but the size, looks, and [especially] cooling make it worth while.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: cools like none other, it takes my i7 and keeps it at around 36c idle and with my other case it keeps it at around high 40's to low 50's idle. this is all with stock cpu fan. i used this case originaly for a build for my mom
her case has a dual core running 3.0 gh and it idles high 20's to low 30's average of 32c. another pro is that it has two 3.5 in slots for misc, like card readers.

Cons: there are sone sharp spots in the case so be careful. metal is a tad thin but will suffice. the front with its snaps is a little disheartening but it will still work just the same.

Other Thoughts: the fan rail in the middle is a pain to deal with but well worth it. the way it is designed it pulls air across the cpu and then is sucked out the back by the other 120mm fan on the back of the case. great airflow.

all in all, great case for the buck considering that it far surpasses my cooler master case in cooling and it was almost twice the cost of the sunbeam

5 out of 5 eggsSix Eggs Minimum!

Pros: This is a fantastic box...hands down one of the best price / value / quality boxes I have worked with. Size is perfect for full ATX mobo. Ventilation is good - system temp stays constant at 35 to 40 deg C...Mounting items into the bays is excellent and works really well.

Cons: The only con about the box is you need to do the following: Get out your drill and "open up" the beveled holes on the side panel...they look sexy BUT they restrict air flow something wicked! Do it carefully.

Other Thoughts: I have all 5 of the external bays in use along with 3 hdd's in the internal rack. A lot of heat could be generated but if you address the con above and do the following when you purchase:
1. Make sure you put a 120 mm fan in the front bottom where the internal 3.5" hd casing is to keep any hd's mounted there cool
2. Make sure you put a 120 mm fan on the side plastic panel for more air flow.
The two fans in the middle of the box are a pain but are great for internal air circulation. You need to work with their positioning to make sure they fit properly around cables and power wires.
Also: the inside of the box is spacious for it's size BUT you will want to have cable ties to keep wires organized. If you do it will look neater and allow you to use the internal fans easily.
If you have a large video card (9+" or longer) you can't use both internal fans...no big deal..

5 out of 5 eggs"COOL" and cool

Pros: Lots of room, lots of fans. Well made. Clear side case to see your cool guts. Beautiful black panels.

Cons: Side window shows ugly silver brace and side of drive cages....see fix below.

Other Thoughts: This was my first build and it was soooo hard to slow down enough to make it as cool as possible. First: remove ulgly silver brace and paint it black (set it aside to dry) Then I cut out the top of my motherboard box (also black) and glued it to the right part of the window to cover the drive cages and display Jetway logo (custom cool!) Reinstalled brace (now black) with a blue tube light behind the angle (shining on my guts!) I'll try to add photos in "video review section.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Airflow Makes Up for Cramped 3.5 HDD Slots

Pros: Very good airflow. Unorthodox but effective mid-line fan placement -- I have installed in total 4 x 120 mm fans (1 x front, 1 x back, and 2 x "centerline"), and a 80 mm fan on the side. Combined with Phenom II x2 Callisto (TDP = 80 W), my system runs barely above ambient temperature.

Cons: Only 3 HDD internal drive bays (3.5 in). However, the case comes with 5 x 5.25 in bays, and I have installed 4 HDD caddies there.

In total, I have 2 +4 hard drives installed in this case. Drives run cool -- temps. stable around 33-34 degrees.

Other Thoughts: I probably overdid on the fans, but I am planning to use this machine as a file server, running 24 x 7. Hopefully good temp. management will improve component lifespan . . . .

5 out of 5 eggsNice Basic Case

Pros: Good Air Flow & Good Price.

Cons: No Fan Filters, hdd activity light hard to see(too close to power led) and no cable management. Arrived with a slight dent in the right door (rubber mallet!).

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice looking case for the price. I would have changed a few things e.g. make the clear side door bigger and capable of having two 120mm fans in it. I didn't use the core fan ability, but have two at the front, one in the side and one at the rear. I resolved the hdd activity led by putting a red lighted fan behind the power and reset buttons. Now when that led lights I see Purple... simply ingenious! Looks excellant with that red one in the front and another red one at the rear. For the other two, I reused the core fans. I have an Asus P5E mb with an EVGA 9800GTX and there is ample room. For cable management, I ended up stuffing and cable-tying into the drive bays. I was able to keep them tied down for good unobstructed air-flow...it took a few, but they are out of sight. Planning a new i7 build and I'm getting another one of these I like it so much. USB and audio ports on the right side and down low really work for me too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: the case looks good; it is simple and understated; does not look like an alien spacecraft. everything fit just fine, including gtx260 (but barely). the case is sitting next to my bed but is so quiet, i sleep with it on. keeps everything cool

Cons: the "core fan system" makes installation a pain. I have to take it out everytime i want to switch out components or even plug in a fan.

Other Thoughts: i can easily overlook the core fan bridge disadvantage because it keeps my system cool and quiet. plus its cool bc no one else has fans in the middle of their case!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Great airflow, lots of modding capability, ability to hide wires behind the motherboard tray, and smart arrangement of both HDD tray and cd tray.

Cons: The middle fan thing, not really a good con though because its so easy to take out. The price for this case seems a bit high.

Other Thoughts: All in all great case.
