2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: It's cheap, plenty of drive space, contains a front USB 3.0 port, there is enough space underneath the motherboard tray to do some cable routing if desired.

Cons: 1. Flimsy material but what do you expect at this price?

2. Popout expansion covers instead of solid metal inserts, you will probably bend the metal around the expansion slots taking the popouts out.
3. Only comes with 4 metal motherboard standoffs, uses cheap plastic snap-in standoffs for the rest.

3. USB 3.0 cable does not have a converter for using on older motherboards with only 2.0, leaving you with only 1 USB port on the front if you're not using a newer motherboard.

4. Rear fan does not have a motherboard connector, only 4pin molex.

5. No place to mound a front fan.

Other Thoughts: Just remember, you really do get what you pay for. For the price this case isn't really a BAD deal, it's just not good. I used this case to replace a damaged one for an older computer so the lack of an adapter for the USB 3.0 is a little annoying but other than that, it does it's job just fine. Just don't use it on a heavy gaming rig, airflow is atrocious and will leave you wanting. Also, the plastic standoffs are just stupid there is no reason you cant include a full set of metal standoffs.

2/5 eggs for the nitpicks

1 out of 5 eggsDIYPC Case

Pros: it has a lot of 5.25" and 3.5" bays
it has SOME cable management "potential"
USB 3.0 in the front port is a plus
cheap?

Cons: very cheap metal (almost flimsy)
it will bend and warp if you open up and close the case often
the stock 80mm fan that came with it is useless... it pushes no air... and it's stock configured to pull air INTO the computer.... not sure why someone would do that... ><

i will need to get a replacement to really get some air flow going
from what i can see, there is no place to place a fan in the front of the case to get a push/pull configuration going. this is a problem...

there is a slot missing in the back where the GPU is supposed to go but if you're not using a separate GPU, it leaves a gaping hole that can't be closed with the sleeve provided (it falls out) and there is no way to secure it.

Other Thoughts: there's a lot of cons to this case. i bought it because of the price and it's for someone who doesn't use the computer heavily and uses it for word processing, surfing, etc. but in retrospect, i wish i had chosen something more sturdy and has a better cooling management system in place

2 out of 5 eggsWaste Of Money

Pros: It was less than 25$

Cons: The case has no mounting spots to install or even add a front fan. This makes using this case for any gaming system pointless. The metal is thing and cheap. It will bend easily. AVOID at all cost

2 out of 5 eggsDecent case - terrible Customer Service

Pros: Cheap. Nice front panel, high, convenient location of connection points. No sharp edges, all black including the inside.

Cons: Thin, flimsy metal, but if you are not moving the case around once the components are installed it's quite rigid.

My front panel audio jacks function incorrectly. They are reversed. I am aware I am not the only one experiencing this problem. The 'sense ret 1 ' and 'sense ret 2' pins on the connector to the MB are wired backwards. If you can swap them they will work correctly.

Other Thoughts: DIYPC Customer Service is totally horrible. They promise and never deliver.

I have been struggling to have them replace the front panel because the audio jacks do not work correctly. They have been promising to replace this panel since I bought this case in 7/13. It is now 12/13. Inexcusable.

DIYCP - If you read these reviews, do the proper business decision and honor your promises.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent case

Pros: *Very good case
*Amazing 3.0 USB on the front
*Like the power button and reset button
*Inside the case is sturdy, nothing is loose or fragile

Cons: Heh... Well here's the thing. The front 2 audio ports (The audio port *green* and the microphone port *red* are very funky. Almost case breaking, to me at least. EVERY TIME I turn on my case, whether it be a reboot or boot up, I have to open up the icon for the program with the audio. Then, I have to plug in the headphones and click the test audio button. Nothing happens. SO, I unplug it from the audio port and plug it into the Mic port. Then it loads up and I press start sound test again. Sometimes it works at this point, sometimes it doesn't. I'd have to do the whole process over again.

Some serious audio issues with those 2 ports. Isn't the motherboard either. It's very annoying constantly unplugging it from the front and replugging it from the mic to audio port.

Motherboard's audio jack works fine. So it's the front of the case's ports that do not work properly.

Other Thoughts: Other than that I have no problem with this case. Fits my needs. I recommend buying another fan for the side of the case. I feel like there isn't enough air flow in there, but that could just be me.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, for what it is.

Pros: Cheap. Crazy cheap.

Cons: The fan that came with the case was LOUD. Had tofigure out that it wasn't the power supply, it was just the fan. For my application, I didn't need the fan anyway. I unplugged it, pulled it, threw it away. Now I'm a happy camper.

Other Thoughts: Can't go wrong for $20.

5 out of 5 eggsGood enough case for $

Pros: USB 3.0 in front. Roomy.

Cons: Thin metal.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. This is not a fancy case. It made my choice because of price and USB 3.0 in front panel. It's a case... You don't get increased performance from a case. I would buy it again.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for a budget build

Pros: USB 3.0 header, inexpensive, decent length for header wires

Cons: Thin metal, minimal included screws.

Other Thoughts: This case was purchased for a budget build for a friend that needed to replace his 9 yr old machine. I was disappointed to see that it only included 4 real stand-offs and 4 plastic stand-offs. The other annoying thing was the lack of standard screws for mounting drives. There was only 7 drive mounting screws included so the DVD drive ended up with 3. It worked with the ASUS motherboard and 430W Corsair PS, but I would spend a little more and getting a better case.

1 out of 5 eggsnothing but cheap

Pros: usb 3.0 front header

Cons: everything case is soo thin when I tried to hang a 750 corsair P/S in it it bent the back of the case at mounting screws never saw a case this thin and I've been building my own since 1985..thought I'd save on the case but now have a doorstop

Other Thoughts: would send back but can't send back bent metal and expect a refund,,, I can't say enough STAY AWAY FROM THIS CASE

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for great price

Pros: -Fits a very large cpu cooler
-Fits a Gigabyte HD7950 with plenty of room
-Fan included
-Some wire management ability
-Both sides of computer case come off

Cons: -Not much room for extra fans
-No area for SSD

Other Thoughts: My other thoughts on the case are as follows:

I will make a cut out on the left hand side of the case and place a plexiglass window in it, inside I will install UV light cathodes. On the plexiglass window I will install a couple UV fans, and I will also be making a cut out in the front to make room for one more fan to increase airflow - for a total of three fans. One side 120mm, one from 120mm, and a 80mm exhaust fan.
