4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, missing accessories

Pros: My buddy and I bought this case on a whim from PC Direct just because of the PSU in it. I ended up only spending 75$.
-Case looks great
-Has easily install-able top fans
-Looks nice
-Cord management works well
-Tool-less HDD/DVD works great

Cons: Only issue I have with this is the fact I had to return the first case I purchased due to not having the modular PSU cables included. Got the new case but it was missing one of the case side panel screws and missing the HDD sliders, all documentation, all standoffs/screws and even the power cord

My buddy had the power cord, standoffs/screws and modular cables but was missing the front and rear 120mm fans and 2 side panel case screws.

Between the both of our cases and old cases we had enough supplies after the one return to both successfully build our systems into this case.

I didn't really mind the hoop-jumping especially for the price, PSU and overall look and feel of the finished product but had I not bought local I would of been a little less happy once that box came in with that many missing items. Not sure who's packaging these things but a little quality control would be my only con.

2 out of 5 eggsMissing drive mounts and All screws

Pros: The size was very good for me and this was my first built from scratch pc.

Cons: When I opened the box and took everything out I noticed I was missing all the screws and drive mounts. Call customer service they told me to call msi I called msi they told me to email some guy to this day still nothing. Happy with the case but the fact that I had to ghetto rig a new tower so my stuff won't fall out not too happy about that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal for a Great Case

Pros: Great case. Easy to open / work with. Big enough for an Evo 212 cooler, and they are massive.

Tooless works great. Not sure why some folks had issues with it. It is quiet and looks great too.

The power supply is worth the price by itself.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have a 4771 with an EVO @12 cooler. The window is a nice touch. I have 5 X 3.5" drivesand 2 X 2.5" ssd's installed in the case. There are two additional 3.5" in the center, using those for the 2.5" SSD's.

I would recommend this to any seasoned builder.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love it!

Pros: It's cheap, has a nice PSU in it, little room for cable management. It's great for someone who doesn't want to put a lot of money in a gaming rig, or first time builders or just who ever. I build one with this case and had no issues at all. Nothing cracked, broke, tore, scratched. Have patents and pay attention when your putting it together and you won't encounter most of the issues some people have had.

Cons: For the price (with a 650W PSU) NONE AT ALL

Other Thoughts: ATM it's around 90$ it comes with a stylish case and a 650w power supply... What are you really expecting? It's not going to be top shelf hardware so don't buy this if you think you just struck oil when you found this one. But I highly recommend it for a budget build

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Case Faulty PSU

Pros: great design looks good and functions exceptionally I ordered this for my gaming build since I liked the ability to sli my graphics cards in the future.

Cons: on 3/22 after reciving the case on 2/6 the PSU made a loud pop noise and system powered down never to power back up put in a replacement PSU that doesn't have enough PCI-e connectors and it powered up the fans so it is definatly the PSU that died on me but I always figured from what I heard Seasonic made exceptional PSUs but this one was a FAIL I'm getting the run-around by MSI on who to talk to to get it replaced since it has a 3 year Manufacturer warranty but every number I have called has told me I have to call a different number I would really like to get my gaming rig back up ASAP and I can't get any info from them so sad.

Other Thoughts: AMD 6350
8 gigs of Crucial Balistix @ 9/9/9
MSI Mobo
Powercolor 7870 2 gb graphics card
1tb Seagate hdd

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, great deal.

Pros: Built a new system this week using this case. I have a Cooler Master 212 Evo and it all fits well in the case. Case is quiet and sturdy. Power supply is great, 650W's and it is bronze rated. Run quiet too.

Cons: Cable management is a little tight on the back end but it works okay in the end.

Other Thoughts: You will not find a better deal on a case and power supply of this quality.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: The case has alot of polish, it has just the right about of flash, without being in your face with tons of obnoxious blue lights. it is very aesthetically pleasing. The way it handles hard drive installation as well as the 3.5 drive was easy and clean with no screw 2 step installation.

Cons: There were only a couple things that irked me about the case, the back panels where you install your expansion cards, are not replaceable, you break the metal off and you can never re-install it. The instruction manual was a bit unclear about some of the case connectors, but you can figure it out with some reasoning. The removeable and washable fan filters and how they are held in seem a bit rough, all that holds them in is cut peices of holed metal which makes it difficult to take them out and put them in, and they are also a bit sharp, you need to use pliers to change the filters and reinstall.

Other Thoughts: Overall good case, and the few things i found wrong with the case are moreso nitpicky than anything. Not to mention the PSU that came with it was more than enough power for my new rig, and the modular nature of it is quite good. also the PSU it comes with is.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Definitely Worth the money for the PSU alone..
Room for extra fans
Easy to work in
Long PSU cables.. you should not need any extensions if you know what your doing

Cons: Plastic case..
fans are a little noisy

Other Thoughts: A Definite must for the budget or frugal buyer.. I am very pleased I ran across this before spending 150-200 like I was about too..

5 out of 5 eggs5 star MSI

Pros: Beautiful cable management. Great looks. A power supply that cost more than the case and is semi modular.
The build was fast and simple ,everything comes apart nice and goes back together nice. plenty of room for large video card(s). Very quite fans ,lots of drive bays really hard to beat.

Cons: only cons is the motherboard posts are difficult to screw into place ,because the tool they give you to do so is to small ,for this i would use a socket screwdriver instead not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: For the price you cant beat this deal. I have many high end cases in my house none with cable managment as good as this. Also the wiring is nice and long , so it dont to much matter where the socket is at on the board you will be able to reach it.
