3 out of 5 eggsMassive No Frills Case

Pros: Massive. Did I mention massive? Has plenty of room to tinker as well as for upgrades. Comes with 3 120mm fans and a side vent hood. Looks good.

Cons: Material is not much thicker than a sheet of copy paper wrapped in aluminum foil. Stock fans are noisy...replace them if you're looking for a quiet case. Front bezel is a plastic fingerprint magnet.

Other Thoughts: Should've gotten a cool master case, with a metal front bezel, made of more durable material for less money but with only 1 120mm fan vent. I had to have 3 120mm fan vents so I got what I paid for. Serves the purpose but with a plastic bezel seems like I overpaid. Also,this case is slightly wider and taller than your traditional mid-tower atx case.

5 out of 5 eggsFanny

Pros: Big, with big fans and no useless 3.5" external bays. It looks sweet like a ninja, You wouldn't notice it but for the fans and leds in the front.

Cons: As mentioned in a few reviews, it feels somewhat fragile, a little big. Oh, and the fans that come with the case are fairly useless as far as flow is concerned, and they are also a bit loud.

Other Thoughts: An excellent case for the price, just get some aftermarket fans to replace the ones that are pre-installed.

5 out of 5 eggsCF-3206SB

Pros: A well constructed, extremely light case that gave good value for the price. It's size and cooling capacity held up very well to my first extreme project.

Cons: A very large case, buyer needs to pay attention to dimensions.

5 out of 5 eggsSpace + Aluminum + Fannage + Cheap = Good

Pros: Lots of space to work in. I maxed out my DIMM slots, installed a video card with an onboard fan, mounted two well spaced hard drives and never once felt cramped. The stock fans are big, plentiful, well placed out of the box and still running strong more than a month later. With all that room for air flow in an aluminum case, I'm not losing any sleep over the temp inside my computer.

Cons: No removeable mobo tray, but what do you expect for the price? The case is roomy enough to compensate for this. Loud, loud, loud! To quote my gf, "It sounds like a big jet engine." Not that I care; I actually find the noise soothing. If you don't, don't put it in your bedroom. As mentioned, there's no 3.5 slot. Again, not like I care. I run Ubuntu, which installs beautifully from CD and network. If you're going to run Windows and don't like plugging and unplugging things, think twice.

Other Thoughts: Fit my needs perfectly for cheap, so I give it a 5. I can see how a Windows user who sleeps next to their computer might not like it though.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Good build quality.

Cons: Not sure yet. Frontal USB/audio cover should be removable because I keep it open all the time.

Other Thoughts: To the guy who complains about floppy panel/cabling. First, floppies are dead. I used it only once to flash bios thats all and I hate to see it protruding thru the face of my 21st century computer! Second, you are wrong about no polarity reading. Colored wires are for siglals and there are markings besides that. Any other computer case would want you to apply some brain to it. If you can't - ask for help and don't blame the hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsOf course no opening for floppy

Pros: 3 x 120mm fans, keeps pretty cool, fans are fairly quiet, decent amount of space.

Cons: I should have gotten a bigger case. My GPU is almost a little too long for this case.

Other Thoughts: Guys, the specs say there is no 3 1/2" external drive bay. When I installed my RAID drivers, I just left the case open and used my floppy that way, then when I was done installing, just unplugged it. Simple as that.

2 out of 5 eggsVery bad overall

Pros: Good Fans, Ok looks.

Cons: Floppy Drive bay does NOT have an opening in the front panel !?
Had to use adapter to put into a 5-bay - looks ugly with the gaping hole.

Front IEEE Pins do not match the motherboard pins.

No explanation of the polarity of the front panel ribbon cable.

Other Thoughts: Great case with stupid mistakes making it unusable. Please note - I could live with the gaping hole around the Floppy, and I could buy proper cables too - However, I am already spending over 2K and expect something more than a wire-and-tape fixed box.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Experience

Pros: Excellent Case. All aluminum. Case fans are actually decent. Good configuration. Great heat dissapation.

Cons: This case doesn't have a opening for Floppys which are required for driver installation! Although there is a opening inside the case, there isn't an opening on the black part which is odd. Terrible design on that part!
