5 out of 5 eggsBest case in the world

Pros: I love it, it immediatly lowered my mb temps almost 10 deg celcius (my last case had no fans though). I added a sunon 120 for the back (90cfm) and it lowered my cpu by about 4-5 deg celcius. That monster 260mm fan is very very quiet. The case looks a lot nice in person than on the picture.

Cons: cons = null item

Other Thoughts: I want to put my pp in it

5 out of 5 eggsJust right

Pros: Nice air inlet with the large fan,light,roomy,door works well,this case don't need bells and whistles.Keeps my ASUS M2N-SLI 570 and AMD 64 5000+ X2 COOL with an ambient of 85F cpu runs at 107F.Easy case to work with good price.Temp. are with supplyed fan only

Cons: None really could have used a little heavyer gauge sheet metal, but it's a pc case not a tv stand.

Other Thoughts: I could be wrong [have been before] any extra fans I use will be for exhaust and a light filter media will keep the cat hair out

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Big fan = Low temp....compared to my old case with 5 80mm fans, this one huge fan, and rear 80mm runs it at a much cooler temp (idle 89 degrees, with games and everything running, 110-114 degrees)

The front door panel is nice with the rubber material, making it easy to clean.

Extreamly quiet!!!

Cons: None really, just whe u close the door, the cd tray opens sometimes, just have to close it gently.

when i first recieved it, it did sound like a boat engine...very loud, looking at it closley, i saw a few LED's were bent to close to the fan, so after easily bending them away from the fan, the case is possibly the most quiet case ive owned!

Other Thoughts: i will be using this company in the future when i build my computers, the cases do what they look like they do...COOOOOL!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great case for the money. Big fan is quiet even at full speed. Room for 120mm fans. Clean look, no windows and colored plastic. AWESOME DEAL FOR $xx!

Cons: Only major real complaint is that the front fan doesn't have a vent on the front of the case to pull air in. There is just a little gap on the bottom of the front panel to pull air in. Higher feet on the bottom would help get more air in through the bottom front to the fan. Maybe the side vents do the trick though since the back fan creates a vacuum.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT!!

Pros: it comes with a gigantic fan which is what i need. everything gets cooled so fast with it! its neon blue which is awesome so my motherboard's neon colored parts glow :D! if you turn the wheel all the way to the max till it stops, the fan goes fast (DUH!)BUT, if you turn it a bit more after it stops, itll go faster. I'm going to mod the wheel to go all the way without the stopper :D

Cons: none at all :D

Other Thoughts: too many people are picky about the material. its not like youre going to drop it from 3 stories up, lol!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: Good looking case. Fan moves quite abit of air. Looks great on the side of the case. Fantastic case for the price.

Cons: Rather thin material, I wouldn't want to drop it. But, for the price its not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: Not the highest quality case out there, but it is definitely worth purchasing if you are looking for an inexpensive good looking case. Also: UPS dented it... Newegg provided fantastic service, I'll definitely be purchasing more from them.

5 out of 5 eggsMan, this case is great if ups doesn't kill it

Pros: Listen, it has a 250mm fan pointing directly at your vid card and CPU. I have a core2duo 4300 up to 2.7ghz and it's at 40c at idle, 52-56c at load, in this case with the stock cpu fan, and just the big side fan and an xclio 750 PS. i also have an 8800gts and a 500gb WD in there. this case is great. socold, so quiet for all the air moving through. The whole front panel and the drivebay covers are also covered with soft touch rubber which is a nice touch.

Cons: the only thing i'd do different is put the hard drive rack facing sideways instead of facing the front of the case. I might also mount the usb and audio ports on the top, but these are minor gripes. also ups done kicked the crud out of her in shipping, the back panel was dented in about 2 inches in the middle, i had to bend it back, didn't get it perfect, but works fine, not worth my time or effort to RMA.

Other Thoughts: I actually have the xclio branded case, but it's the same exact unit. This is way more case than the price implies. also if the fan makes a clicking noise, just bend the led that it's hitting back a tad and problem solved.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: big case. big fan. i did not add any fans to it. The one that is on the side moves air like crazy though the whole case. nothing inside gets above 95f under full load.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: installed asus vista plus amd MB,2 gig g-skill, 8800gts, am2 4600 cpu and nothing gets above 95f under full load. great air movement

4 out of 5 eggslike the case

Pros: Plenty of room. Most edges rolled. Plenty of 3.5 inch bays. Front door is well made and looks nice. The blue LEDs for power and HDD have the right brightness. All the support points for my MB were solid. Good value for the money.

Cons: The gigantic fan on the side panel: it moves a lot of air and is not too noisy, but its speed control is a variable resistor mounted to the side of the front cover. Seems cheesy to me. I'm also concerned that it once that big fan's motor fails, a replacement will be hard to find and install.

Other Thoughts: There is an "A+" symbol in blue LEDs on the front panel. I left it disconnected. I couldn't figure out a way to disable the blue LEDs on the large fan, so they got whacked out. The case looks very conservative, now. This was my first time build from all new components.

3 out of 5 eggsShipping can be rough.

Pros: Large 250MM Case fan should allow for excellent and quiet cooling. Very nice look.

Cons: Case came to me broken. UPS shipping completely snapped the front bezel off the case. The rear of the case was destroyed as well. I shipped it back for a refund. Newegg RMA'd no questions asked.

Other Thoughts: This was being used for a client's build. I had to buy a case locally to complete the build on time. UPS is very rough on the handling of shipped items. They also delivered the case and all the other ordered parts to a different address I was lucky enough to figure out where they went and pick them up before they ended up in a hock shop or someone else's computer.

I would like to have tried this case since it has good reviews but UPS ruined that for me. Newegg still rocks.
