2 out of 5 eggsCould be better held together with glue

Pros: Looks cool, has a lot of room

Cons: You can hold a case with glue together better than this. The front panel will pop off easily. I want to try putting a fan behind it and see if that can actually hold up or will it just blow off. The feet snapped out of the holes just by sliding it across the table. Side panel has a little window that you literally have to glue in. Not that much cable management. Half the thing was broken just by sitting out of the box for an hour or so.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this case unless you want to keep it in its original packaging at all times.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: This case has everything I wanted, lots of room, good porting. The face looks funny but it grows on you. Case feels solid, easy to take apart and put together. No trouble getting the MB (std ATX Asus) placed. For the price range its in, you can't beat it! Very lengthy USB-3 cable for the top USB ports.

Cons: Not much of a con, but the kit box included parts for a different case style, but nothing was missing.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Amazing Case,Awesome looks, good cable management, good cooling, very easy hard drive installation, adjustable for different graphics card sizes.

Cons: The position of the hard drives and the disc drive bays make it difficult to power both with the same cable, Its not really that inconvenient its just the only con I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent!

Pros: High quality materials. Easy on off magnetic dust covers. Very easy cable management. Front of case snaps on and off with ease. Cool look. Both 120 and 200(big fan in front) are almost silent while keeping airflow moving. USB 3.0 ports on the top for convenience. Hot swap power and sata 3 tray on top.

Cons: Heavy, but I guess i just didn't want to fork out the money for titanium. lol

Other Thoughts: Front and rear chassis fans are amazing, running at around 800 rpm. I have used the external hot swap disk drive and it works flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied

Pros: Great look. Easy to install components. Super quiet fans. USB 3.0. Cool looking side window and 200 mm LED intake fan. Room under motherboard tray for cable management and plenty of room above components.

Cons: The front panel that covers the 200 mm fan and the rest of the front of the computer is very easy to come off if you aren't careful.

Other Thoughts: Bought it for my first computer build and so far it is doing wonderfully. Going to order some of their fans and liquid cooler for CPU since i have room for a lot of fans.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING!

Pros: Lots of Space
Cool Design
Removeable compartments
Cable and Liquid Cooling management
Magnetic Dust Catcher

Cons: None that I can think of!

Other Thoughts: This case is absolutely amazing. Tons of Space, Great construction, the dust screens are easy to remove to clean and easy to put back, simple slide it over and it clicks back into place via magnets. It really catches attention, and has this neat missle launch button for power and a button to reset the PC in crash situations. Lots of space inside, easy cable management, and theres tons of spots ready to install more fans. Best case ive ever purchased and ive been building my own PCs for 8 yrs
