Comments: Good case for the most part. The top Viper face on the front stopped lighting up after 3 hours. Besides that - Great case

5 out of 5 eggsJaw dropping.

Comments: That is the reaction of everyone who sees this case. The designers
should recieve an award.Easy setup, I added a 120mm 2000rpm fan in the back, system temp. around 10 degrees f warmer than room temp. That's with an oc'd a64 @ 2530ghz. 500w quality power supply, better than another brand I paid $60 for on another system.The top vent is a good idea,the drive bay door has a good seal,using small magnets.
Plenty of room inside.I added a UV cold light for the Lanparty MB, painted the optical drives and floppy red {Model Master flame red} a perfect match.Frankly it amazes me that this can be had at such a reasonable cost. OK that's enough.

5 out of 5 eggsHot Looking Case! Built tough!

Comments: This case is the most radical looking case I've seen! The 500W power supply with two case fans runs very cool. The only drawback is that the sensor cable for the front panel LCD temperature display is almost too short to reach the processor on the ECS motherboards.
Newegg's order processing, shipping cost and time can never be beat!! Keep on gettin' it, Newegg!!

2 out of 5 eggsNot to happy with this case

Comments: This case claims to be a good high end case but its not. First the 500W power supply is cheap, it is only a 20 pin ATX connector when most high end motherboards now use a 24 pin. I had to run out a spend an additional $xxx for a 24 pin PS. Second the front panel LED temp reader is flaky and loses portions of the LED display all the time. This started only 2 days after I got the case. Third its cheap construction the chrome clips it uses on the side of the case break. I have had 2 break already and havent even had it a week. My advice is get a different case.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Comments: great looking case for the buck.paint was excellent,parts fits together great,display was a great addition,and came with 2 LED(red) fans but they were the 80mm so I got 2 120s and they fit right in(be careful when popping face off the tabs are cheap),has a 500w supply.Now the cons..Viper at the top of drive door barely lit,door above that with power/reset is cheap,temp sensor was bad idea<put it between sink and cpu I THINK NOT put it in the sink vents only 1 degree off,and finally the so call rack on back was a xxx idea,My monitor plug wouldnt fit with it on

Comments: I recieved this case in a couple days, Newegg ships very quickly. This case came with everything described and one thing I didn't see on the description. Awesome paint job, glossy and beautiful. I'd say it's the best looking case I've ever seen. The viper window was a little scuffed but it's all good. Newegg is the best!!!

3 out of 5 eggsLooks nice, has some issues

Comments: I purchased two of these style cases, a Red/Black one and and a Blue/Black one. Both came with broken/missing Connectors that hold the Plexiglass on. They also came with 3 standoffs for the Motherboard.... Seem as how an ATX MB needs 9 or 10, (for a full size ATX MB). That puts you 6 or 7 short per case.

The cases are very light weight, this is due to the extreemly thin steel. This is fine, except when you try to breakout the Card slot breakouts. It is very easy to mangle the dividers. At the price they ask for these, they should have included Screwed in Card slot blanks. Also the Card slots are too far away from the Motherboard. I may have to bend the entire case to keep the Video card from being pulled out of the motherboard overtime.

The Paint Jobs look great and all the covers and front panels came apart easily. There are plenty of places to mount fans using screws. Plastic pop in style mounts would have been a little nicer.

The layout is very nice, everything was easy to access.

I would seriously question the "500" watt rating of the Power Supply. I removed mine and put in one of my old 430 watt xxxxx. The "500" watt P.S. this came with had the same heft as one of my old 300 watt generic Power Supplies. But who knows.

I like these cases, the look very very sharp, (Red one for me, the Blue one for my Nephew). They have good features and layouts. But the craftsmanship is terrible, (except the paint job which seems very nice). With the "from the factory damage", (boxes had no marks on them), the missing screws, the poor design of the Card Slots blanks and the misalignment of the card slots, I have to give this a 3 out of 5 stars.

Basically 5 stars in looks, features and design, with a 1 star rating on quality control/craftmanship.

If your building it for a younger person, this is fantastic choice, it does look very very cool.

The paint jobs were fine

4 out of 5 eggsJutbunny

Comments: pretty good case....real nice looks pretty sexy in the dark,the only thing that i didnt like was it only come with 2 fans" but other than that its a awsome case....good to make a gaming case....so for all you all looking for a nice case better get it while its on (SAle) and oh yea i love the "LcD" moderator on it ....cause it will let you know how hot its runing, and if it gets too hot it will beep, and when it does that then its time to shut the baby down ....but i got to thank (NEWEGG) for the fast shiping gotta love it....ordered it 1 day and got it the next can't bet that....
