4 out of 5 eggsAwesome case

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Got this one for my wife, as I have the white version and it really is a great case. Has decent options for cable management and cooling. The SSD bay built in and the hard drive bay are also nice touches. I always love working with this case, this one would be my third build.

Cons: Black paint finish seems a bit cheaper than the white one, but not a big deal.

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: - Holds your parts
- Bottom PSU mount

Cons: - Front fan failed quickly like other reviews said
- Noisy even after I replaced the fans
- Hard drive enclosures will block longer graphics cards unless you spend some quality time with a dremel

Other Thoughts: Not the worst buy I've ever made but I wish I had saved up another $20 and bought a bigger case instead.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value, nothing amazing

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: USB 3.0 on front panel (but only one port?)
rubber mounts for drives
additional fan mounts
filter/grill on front intake fan to catch some dust
some space behind mobo for cable management, though a tight fit
Didn't have sharp edges everywhere often characteristic to cheap cases

Cons: filter is limited only to front intake fan. rest of the case is a very open air design, so it will get dusty anyway.
you get what you pay for here with build quality, it's a little flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Used this case in a build for a family member. Went cheap with the case so I could spend more on quality parts for the inside. You still sort of get what you pay for in terms of build quality yet at the same the case has some decent, modern features that give it a little more value and put it a notch above a lot of other budget cases out there. First thing I did was rip out the front LED fan (I've been done with glowing computer cases for a long time now). Wanted to try to improve the default airflow setup some, so I swapped in better 120mm front/rear fans, added a 120mm exhaust fan up top and added a couple 80mm fans on the side panel for addition intake to blow in front of the CPU and over the video card. Side panel can do either 4x 80mm fans or 1x200mm, was considering a 200mm but wasn't sure I could make it fit with my upright CPU cooler and the system isn't going to be producing huge levels of heat either. There's a bit of space under the mobo mounting plate for cable management. It's not the best but with some time and care I was able to get the cabling done pretty cleanly, leaving a nice open case for airflow without too much trouble. This case is probably going to need more frequent interior dusting than my nicer cases but in the end it gets the job done pretty well for a low cost.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and sleek

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Quiet. Very sharp looking gloss finish. Cable management area is more than sufficient for a smaller build. Included fans are of good quality. The two hard drive bays have snap-in posts on the sides and screw access through the bottom for easy change out.

Cons: The front fan led is a little bright for my tastes but not going to knock it down over that. Fingerprint smudges could be a problem but with the high gloss finish it's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Initially ordered a Ranger-M but they were out, picked up this instead and not disappointed at all.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Description was good, measurements were accurate so I knew how much space I was dealing with, now if only the 200mm fan I bought had been as descriptive.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsA decent case

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: This case is a decent case. It does not have a lot of frills and extras but works as it should. I picked up the black version of this case for my Father in law and he likes it so that is a plus!

Cons: The inside view sows that there is a floppy/card reader position available in the case. Upon further inspection there is only a 5.25" bay in the front. I had to modify the front cover to use an internal card reader.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice quality

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: A great case truly, does everything its meant to, and looks very nice. Especially in the dark due to it's blue LED fan.

Cons: Very cramped, almost no cable managed room. I managed, but it was a very tight squeeze building in this case. Not a good case for first time builders. Due to lack of cable management your parts may overheat.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Great case for gaming. Has a dedicated ssd slot, works well for any 2.5" drive holds 3x 120mm fans + a 200mm fan. Rubber mounds for the 2 bottom 3.5" and the 2x 5.25" drives.

I have this case setup with a passive video card and passive cpu heatsink. I have just the 200mm fan and a 120mm fan on the front, both running at a slow speed.

Like most reviews. A 200mmx200mmx30mm is to thick to install on the side panel. I bought a bitfenix led pro 200mmx200mmx25mm fan (normal fan thickness) and it fit on the side. The fan sits right against my psu, but no problems. I didn't want a crummy sleeve bearing fan, and all 20mm thick fans seem to be.

Cons: Came with a dent on the top panel, but the out side box wasn't damaged in a way to justify the case damaged. Popped most of it out and wife approved, since its her pc. Still see a warp in the high gloss.

Paint shows finger prints on top and sides, front isn't as acceptable to finger prints.

What looks like a 5.25" drive bay, on the outside bottom external drive bay has a hole for only a 3.5" behind the face plate, but the front panel has a 5.25" hole. So the only good use for it is an internal 3.5" drive.

Other Thoughts: Has a gloss paint coating. A bit odd compared to the standard powdered coating on most cases.

The side panel behind the motherboard has holes in it just like the other, but no holes for a fan. (Not enough thickness). Make sure you have a positive pressure fan setup.

Cable management isn't bad for such a cheap case. I put all extra power cables where the bottom 3.5" drive would go, then you can wrap cables behind the motherboard and the other side panel.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal for budget build

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Was trying to build a solid all around pc as cheaply as possible. This case was inexpensive and has all the features i could ask for. The front usb 3 cable comes with an adapter for usb2 which i needed for the mobo i got. Without it the port would have gone unused. I placed a 140mm fan on the side panel with no issue at all. The case can hold two hard drives and two ssd drives. The ssd' can be mounted sideways above the drive cage. I had no trouble with the length of the or functionality cables coming from the front of the case. The led fan is not to bright but looks good. Airflow is about as good as you can expect with a stock case fan. I was also able to fit an HD 7770 gpu and the cooler master seidon 120mm cooler into this case with no hassle.

Cons: the side behind the mobo has a vent, for what reason i have no clue. You will not fit a fan back there not even a slim. You can route cables back there but it is a tight fit especially for those heavily braided psu cables. The routing holes for the cables could also be placed a little better. The real reason for the egg drop however is the bottom right corner under the motherboard has no standoff. In this case the standoff's are pre-attached. Problem is that there simply isn't one at all on the bottom right. Didn't break off either as i felt the surface with my finger. No cut out or jagged surface indicating it was there at some point. Some might say no big deal one missing standoff isn't really a big deal. I agree but its annoying cause that's the corner with my sata ports. So i need to be careful when pressing down to brace the board with my other hand to avoid bending it.

Other Thoughts: This is a microatx case meant for matx boards so the missing standoff is odd. I decided it wasn't worth the hassle and cost of an rma since the heaviest thing i'd attaching to the board is a light weight gpu. However anyone using a beefier add on card might want to be careful. Its necessity pretty much depends on the board in questions overall layout. However unless your planning to stick a r9 290x in this thing you probably don't have a reason to worry about the standoff. I will also say that i would recommend this case for budget builds looking for a balance of features and value.
