5 out of 5 eggsComputer Case

Pros: Just what I wanted! As describe. Needed a simple case, I got it! One 92mm fan, that's it. All I needed.

Cons: none............

Other Thoughts: I'm building a system with that case. It has Ubuntu 13 in it now. A Vanguard Asus mobo, 512mb vid card, that also is by Asus. P4 CPU 3.4ghz,and OCing options if I like. (A lot better than my last P4 2.8ghz PC) 16gb of ram/memory and room for 2 more later. I'm very happy with it. Can't wait till I can put all together. (That's the fun part) Good bye to windows!!!!! Whoooo Hoooooo!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for New Builds

Pros: I have had this for about a month now and it has been a great case for my first build!
Cheap too! Got it when it was on sale for $30 w/ MIB.

Cons: Case is a bit flimsy on side panels but not that bad.
Odd placement for the 8 Pin CPU Plug, It was a real struggle to get it into the slot while putting the MoBo in.

Other Thoughts: I could see this used for my upgrades as well, I really bought the case for it's looks.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It is a good case for your 1st build. There is plenty of room but in my case, i had to replace some HDD to make space for my long video card.

Cons: Can't believe it does not have Fan Adapter. My Mobo only has 3 fan slots, and one is for CPU fan, means that i can only run 2 fans. I am planning to upgrade in the future.
And try researching about Front Pannel connectors since it can be a headache to figure out the proper way >.>

Other Thoughts: Could be bigger, specially in the back, for cable control, but not so bad for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case for the money

Pros: Very inexpensive, lots of room for hardware, can fit two 120mm fans on the front and top, SSD mount, comes with rear fan, solid construction for the money, good cable management, very attractive without being gaudy.

Cons: 1 USB 3.0 on front, other is 2.0, no standoffs on case they are fixed mounts (not that my board had a problem), a pain to take off the front cover to put in a fan.

Other Thoughts: I don't see how you can go wrong at this price.

4 out of 5 eggsa very nice case

Pros: Roomy, bigger than I expected. Good room behind the motherboard to run cables, Premounted spotter nut. Painted inside. Looks nice without being over the top.Lots of fan options.

Cons: External PCI hold down screws - just a personal preference, but has a easy on cover. A couple of sharp edges or points could've used some grommets and/ or edging.

Other Thoughts: Got this case with in a combo package to build the parents anew PC (1st in 10yrs!). Considering the combo was for a AMD APU & mini ATX board, the case was huge. Made for a nice easy build. Construction seemed solid. The tool-less mounts aren't real solid, but do the job. Actually liked it better than the Corsair 300R case I used for my own build a few months back.

Only complaint & its a nit-picky one, is that the mounting pads for the mb are painted. This interferes with proper grounding. Most painted cases are this way though & a little sanding removes the paint.

I'd definitely consider this case again.

3 out of 5 eggsMade in China not Germany

Pros: The case has lot of room for nice PC build. The case provide lots of ventilation, the point if to install the fan. Not front fan included.

Cons: The cables that comes with this case are very inexpensive. On my first case the power cable was lose. The main cable to power the Motherboard(20-24 pins) was not making a good contact. I have never seen such seen in a case.

The case bend really easy. I bought as part of the combo otherwise I would have returned. I would not recommend this case to anyone.
The power supply seat on top of the two filter in the botton, so to cleaned you need to remove the PS, nice design. I does not come with enough screw less brackets, only 2 5.25" and 2 3.5", so i can only allow to install two hard drives and then figure out.

Other Thoughts: The items in the combo that Newegg offered were a good deal and good quality, so I cannot complain. I would just replace the case soon.

3 out of 5 eggsOK for the $. Get a adapter if you have a SSD.

Pros: Looks decent inside and out.

Fits my huge video card.

Room in the back for my cables.

Cons: Major issue when I tried to mount my Kingston 120GB 2.5" SSD. The case does not come with 2.5" to 3.5" adapters. The single 2.5" mount at the bottom of the case is pretty much just 4 screw holes raised slightly off the bottom. When mounted, there is not enough clearance to plug in the SATA connector from my Corsair CX600. So, the 2.5" drive bay is pretty much useless. I have ordered a adapter, so hopefully it will work.

The dust screen is wedged between the PSU and the bottom of the case. There is no way to take it out to clean without removing the PSU. What were you thinking when you designed this?

Plastic front panel is not well made. Grinds on my nerves every time I have to open it up, never knowing whether or not it's going to break the plastic clips.

Screwless mounts are flimsy. My HHD rattles when it's suppose to be secured. I have opted to not use the mounts at all. Screws work just fine.

Other Thoughts: Not terrible for the price. The 2.5 drive bay is the only major problem I have with it so far.

Haven't had a chance to test out the USB3.0 or the front jacks. Will update this when I finish the build.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap but Functional

Pros: Front USB 3.0 port, water cooling capable, bottom mounted PSU, fan expandable, atleast 1 3.5 in. external drive, looks very clean, includes 1 rear 120mm fan. Blue front LED's for HD and Power. Alot of options for a cheap, entry-level gaming case. Plenty of spaces to reroute cabling.

Cons: Case Manufacturer only sends you like 5 plastic switches for easy mounting of drives even though the case supports more drives. If you use the external 3.5 in. drive, you can't mount two fans on the front. Only 1 2.5 in. place for SSD drives. No reset button!

Other Thoughts: You get what you paid for. Motherboards with a front USB 3.0 header are a challenge to find. This case isn't worth more than $40 but is a bargain. I've seen other trash out there with no USB 3.0 for about the same price.
