5 out of 5 eggsRoomy, Customizable, and solid.

Pros: Looks nice, I like the orange scheme.
It's different than your typical blue or red cases.

USB 3.0 slots in the front are convenient, and the power button is fancy.

The back panel has about an inch or so of space for cords to be maintained and maneuvered right out of the way.

With the 220mm fan in the front, the 120 in the back, the 120 mm on my power supply, the 80 on my CPU and the 2 80s on my gpu this thing has a pretty nice airflow and still room for more.

The different settings on the case are great for me because my gpu is about 320mm, so the b setting is awesome for me without sacrificing hard drive slots.

All in all for 75 bucks I'm super impressed.

Cons: I can't find any cons. The ones I've read in the reviews, I don't find those to be present with my case. It's pretty solid for me.

Other Thoughts: If this is your first build, this case is great.

It's roomy and you can manage your cords in the back easier.

The finished product is clean and snug despite all the room you have.

1 out of 5 eggsterrible

Pros: looks cool

Cons: the rubber feet fall of constantly. no real bindings for them to screw in. The front faceplate easily falls off.

Other Thoughts: I wish I wouldve bought a different case truly. This case inst great at so if there is a toss up between this and another case. go with the other case.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm impressed

Pros: -Sturdy
-Roomy inside
-Quiet fans
-Good air-flow
-Was very easy transferring all the guts from my old case to this one.
-Easy to hide cords
-Looks great!

Cons: -none so far

Other Thoughts: I tried a Cougar brand PSU a couple years ago and was surprised how well built it was and it's still running great! I decided to give them a try again with this new case and so far, I'm very happy. My old N4XT case was awkward to carry, flimsy, and heavy as hell. Not to mention all th N4XT fans went out in it one by one and could only be replaced by more uselessN4XT brand fans. What a joke. Cougar produces a much higher quality product.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Well Built!

Pros: This is a very sturdy case. The primary material is metal, but even the plastic components are thick and strong. With the exception of the somewhat flimsy and rickety "missile cover" for the power button, all components of the case seem strong and built to last.

The amount of drive slots is completely absurd on this case, there is no way most people are going to utilize the maximum number of drives that this thing can hold- however, what is really interesting is that you can rearrange the allignment of the drive slots to fit a larger gpu- im not sure if you'd be able to fit 2 large cards in there for SLI/Crossfire, but its great to know that i can pop out some unused drive slots to fit a bigger graphics card.

This case also has a nifty cable management system- you can actually run some wires behind the motherboard to keep them out of the way. This is handy because there are extra cables coming from the top of the case due to the HotSwapping drive on the top-outside of the case. My rig has never looked cleaner due to the numerous routes to run cables.

FANS! This baby hides a monster intake fan behind the front cover. I didnt even know it was there until I started installing my extra drives and took of the front cover. This fan is almost half the height of the case! The included rear fan is fairly large as well and appears to be will built. This case also has support for top, bottom, and side fans, with removable dust filters for each side. I've never worried about overheating before, and now im sure i never will.

Its orange. Lets be honest, you know youre looking at this case because the orange caught your eye. To be honest, i was expecting more of a darker burnt orange than the traffic cone orange that it turned out to be, but this case will certainly attract lots of attention- especially if you pop off that front cover and show off the jet engine fan with complimentary red LEDs.

Cons: My one complaint is that the ports on the top of the case (2 usb3, headphone, and mic) are a little stiff. It takes more effort than expected to get things in and out. Im hoping maybe they just need to be... broken in? I hope that is the case, but this hardly makes a difference overall.

Other Thoughts: I'll be honest, I got this case because it reminded me of the HEV suit from Half Life.
