4 out of 5 eggseh

Comments: Well I ordered this case after reading the reviews and the price of course. It came a day early which is awsome. But on arrival the front panel had the clips broken off on one side, nothing a little supper glue cant fix. But I bought this case for the purpose of Moddin so I don't really care. Thanks new egg other than that it is an awsome case huge and spacious.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Comments: I really wanted a Full Tower case so i started looking around.
Many of them go $xxx+. i only wanted to spend the bare minimum, so i got this case. I am very happy with this case.

The only problem with this case is that the front fan port, doesnt fit the traditional fan screws. but regular M3 threaded screws.

That was my only disapointment

You wont regret chosing this case! :)




o Yea,

Make sure u have ATA and Floppy Connectors that are long enough to reach from the motherboard to the top of the case (i think about 2 feet from the bottom of my motherboard to the top floppy drive)

5 out of 5 eggsbeef cake brick house for mods

Comments: I received this case today via FedEx from Cali to NY in 2 days! The NewEgg/Fedex combo rocks. Now the case. This thing is great. Thick steal, very basic. I'm waiting for some water cooling supplies before I start going crazy. I already sanded it down and re mounted the drive bay to make room for my heater core. I am so impressed with the durability and strength of this case for the money. I was going to get a ThermalTake Amarok series. But for less than 50 bucks I can make better. Only knock, it could be a good 2" deeper in the foot print and about 4" longer would be nice.But still not bad if you don't mind working in a tight spot with lots of mods & water cooling.

3 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I'm not sure if it was just me but when I got my case I spent 2 days troubleshooting why no power would power up when my machine was put together. Only to find out that either during shipping or at some other point the power connection wire had come loose so I had to completely take apart the case and go insane trying to fiure out what was wrong.

Once that was fixed though its a perfectly sturdy case, unfortunately my power led is 3 prong and my motherboard only has a 2 prong so the power light doesn't work but everything else is just as well.

Comes with enough skrews to last you awhile and some wierd "stand" like plastic accessories. All and all not a bad unit.

Comments: This case is gigantic! Plenty of room for whatever you wanna put in it. Like a liquid cooling system:) It's built like a tank.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost There

Comments: This case has more than enough room in the top compartment. Strangly enough, I always felt crammed for space when working in the lower section with the motherboard. The stark division between the sections is made by the giant metal sheet in the middle (with only a 4x2 hole for wiring and a place for your PSU). This makes it a little hard to cool with fans (I'm a fan guy, I've just never gotten into water cooling). I fixed my problem by making two 80mm holes in the lower half of the side of the case and placing ThermalTake TT-8025A-2B case fans in them. I run at a couple degrees at above room temperature now (largly thanks to the ThermalTake Venus 12 on the processor).

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I absolutely love this case it is everything I was looking for. For the most part it's huge and that's what I wanted. Water cooling will fit no problem along with hard drives and opticals. Im gonna cut this case pretty intensively for my project. The only thing I didnt like is how hard it was to take the side panels off. I eventually got them off literally prying them off.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: This case is great. I've had a case with the same inner skeleton as this case for about 6 years now. The only difference between this case and mine is the front panel, which I guess AMS changed.

It is very durable and is a modders dream. It has very thick steel and has lots of room everywhere. Definatly not for the faint of heart when it comes to modding. I've cut and chopped mine like there was no tomorrow. This case has alot of potential to become anything you want it to be. 5 out of 5.
