1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy!

Pros: None

Cons: The motherboard cannot be screw ed down because the threads on the standoffs do not match the threads of the screws. I tried standard motherboard screws and they do not screw in all the way.
I would return it but I cut up the box sending in the rebate so I can't return it.

Other Thoughts: Avoid this case.

1 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLE!

Pros: nothing

Cons: The box looked like it had been used as a pinata it was so messed it. The case was so terribly bent out of shape it really was bad. Unfortunately i didnt have enough money for a better case so i tried to bend back what i could. The back plate for my mother board couldnt even go in it was diagonal. it wasnt bent that way either it was from the case being poorly made. also i had to hammer down the bottom of the case because my psu was taking up too much space and my mother board would fit in. Also they throw all the screws in one bag so you have no clue which is which. Ireally wished i would have saved $30 more so i could have gotten a decent case instead of this piece of garbage.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent, but could be a lot better.

Pros: It's a cheap case, has a nice look to it. For a budget build, its viable.

Cons: Instructions are very lacking, one sheet of paper saying where some things go.

The case came to me missing some screws, its been about 2 weeks since I contacted support (DIYPC) with no reply on their "24 hour return reply". I would return it, but it would end up costing more than buying the items from a 3rd party.

Other Thoughts: The front panel looks like it should come off, but seems to require more force to get it off than it should.
I have not yet set up all the hardware inside, but cable management seems sufficient granted time is taken to think about it.

4 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed

Pros: This case has a lot to offer at a very reasonable price. Good sized hole behind the motherboard for installation of third party coolers. Ample space for most systems most builders are looking to put together in this price range. Cooling is effective, with two included fans. Front fan is red-lit, and thankfully not too bright. 2 USB3.0 ports up front is incredibly welcome at any price point.Thumbscrews on the side panels are also a nice touch. Excellent cable routing, using the slight bulge on the side panel to allow for a little extra breathing room. Side window is tinted, so any lights from the inside are dimmed (a plus in my book). Surprising, I can't say there's any noticeable noise from the overall build.
Light weight, which is actually a good and a bad thing.

Cons: The metal is thin, which makes the case light, but also not entirely rigid. One of the braces that holds a 2.5" drive in place was bent, but easily pushed back into place. When going to mount the CPU cooler, I found a place to mount a 2.5" drive behind the motherboard. However, the braces for it were also bent. Did not attempt to use.

Other Thoughts: ASRock Z75 Pro 3
Xeon E3-1235 with stock cooling
G.Skill Ares 8GB (2x4)
ASUS GTX960 Strix OC
Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive

System appears to be coping with temperatures very well.
Would highly recommend to a budget builder looking to house components efficiently, with a mild touch of flourish.

4 out of 5 eggsLow priced functional case.

Pros: Case seems well built the walls on it seem thin but it does what it supposed to and doesn't seem like it'll break anytime soon.

Cons: Cons would be only having space for 2 fans and only three drives.

4 out of 5 eggsRe-review

Pros: * DIYPC e-mailed me back; plus one egg for customer service.


* DIYPC customer service exists.

Cons: * Not a value at current pricing.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this case again, but I would buy a different DIYPC case because they responded to my concerns by e-mail in a timely fashion.

1 out of 5 eggsSave your money. Pretty Paper Weight.

Pros: Looks great. Has a red fan. Has a LED fan in front.

Cons: Cheaply made. Some of the thumb screws are hard to install (you will need a screwdriver to get them in and out). The other two seem like they are too small. The mounts don't line up correctly and will cause a short on you board.

Other Thoughts: I should have saved my money. I tried two different motherboards and had short problems with both. I am not a TECH guy some I am not good enough to repair what's wrong with this now very pretty paper weight. Good luck if you buy it. I hope you know more then me.

3 out of 5 eggsAvoid This Case

Pros: * designed well, has most of the features you would expect in a more expensive case.

Cons: * Poor execution. Examples:
- Front panel cracked the first time I removed it.
- The thumbscrews that hold the case panels on required a lot of torque on two of them; the other two were very loose.
- One of the standoffs came loose; needs a spot of Loctite.
- The expansion card spaces are bend and break. Once you have installed a card, you will have a void that you cannot fill with the original insert.
- Motherboard must be removed from the case to put a new bottom bracket on; only three of the four screw holes are in the cutout.

Other Thoughts: For full price, you should consider a better case. For sale price, it is a reasonable value buy, if you can deal with the kinds of issues I listed above.

Minus one egg for easily broken front panel, minus another egg for overall cheapness.
