1 out of 5 eggsyou get what you pay for

Pros: It was cheap. While it feels light for the size and materials that was used to build it, I wouldn't call it flimsy either.

Cons: It's a real fixer-upper. A few months of owning it, the headphone jack stopped working. So I went to radioshock to buy the 3.5mm female jack to replace it. I thought that was the end of it but after another month, the rarely used front USB 3 stopped working too. So I ended up buying another replacement part for it. With all the replacements I ended up doing, I could've just bought a better case with the amount I spent. It's working fine now. But for people who aren't into soldering and re-cabling will probably end up throwing this away.

Other Thoughts: I probably got a bad egg, but it just so happened that all the problems came out as soon as I can't return it anymore to newegg. It would've cost me more to ship it back to the manufacturer to get it replaced.

4 out of 5 eggsAiry, but flimsy.

Pros: ~Price! For the design, layout, front panel options and size for the money, you really can't beat this case.
~8 120/140mm fan mounting locations. (2 top, 2 side, 2 front, 1 back, 1 bottom.)
~Open, airy internal design. (Very spacious!)
~Tons of internal 3.5" mounts.
~Holes strategically placed in motherboard tray to allow for simple CPU cooler install even after the Mobo is mounted in the case.
~Holes and loops strategically placed in motherboard tray to make cable management a snap. (Hid most cables behind the tray and zip-tied them down to the provided hook/loops.)
~Tool-less 3.5"/5.25" mounts made installing my peripherals all too easy.

Cons: ~Colors. It's black, but has very clashing white mesh on the front. Intend to case-mod that to a more reasonable color.
~Construction. Not sure if this is due to the low cost or due to the number of fan mounting locations requiring mesh cutouts, but the varying panels feel flimsy at best. Maybe a better mesh cut or thicker metal would fix that, but for the price, one can't complain too much.
~Tool-less solution for the PCI slots was lacking, and the handle for it got in the way of installing the rear fan. Removed completely and just used screws to hold my PCI cards in place.

Other Thoughts: The box it came in shows that it should have come with a fan. But it didn't! Newegg's specs list don't list it as having a fan though, so I expected that. I just didn't expect the box itself to have a fan printed on it. Others may get confused by this.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice interior, Plenty of place of cable management. Lots of fan space. bottom mounted PSU lets you place it for interior fan intake of exterior. Great for positive air flow using 2 front fans, 2 side fans and a bottom fan for input, and 2 top and read for exhaust makes it a good case for positive pressure systems.

Cons: front covers for 5.25 drive feel a bit cheap, and flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again, and recommencement for all building from simply internet surfers to high end systems.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, Solid case.

Pros: Solid construction for a very affordable case. Tool-less hard drive and optical drive system works very well. Plenty of fan mounting options. Cable routing is nifty! I also like the fan filters.

Cons: I still feel as if everything is just a little bit too pushed together. I wish there was just 1-2mm more behind the mobo tray to accommodate wire routing. Also I would have like a few more millimeters between the bottom of the motherboard and the power supply. I docked an egg because I wish the case just had a few more millimeters in every direction.

4 out of 5 eggsgood, but cheap-feeling

Pros: Tons of drive bays. Tool-free drive installation. Comes with 5.25 to 3.5" front bay adapter, which is a nice touch. Front panel (well, top panel actually) is nice, provides easy access if the case is on the floor or a bottom shelf. Front-panel USB3 has a legacy USB plug, which is good if your motherboard doesn't have a USB3 header (like mine). Lots of space inside, especially if you've got an mATX board (like mine). Ample CPU cutout in the tray, lots of cable routing cutouts, but not much space behind the tray (was enough to stuff my non-modular PSU cables with the included zip ties). And you can't argue with the price.

Cons: Chassis panels are a bit thin, feels flimsy, and it arrived with the back panel near the power supply bent a bit (not enough to cause any problems), does not appear to be shipping damage. Drive locks also feel cheap, but they work fine. Only has enough HDD locks to do one side of the drives if you have all 8 bays filled. Really bright power LED, which may not be a problem, but worth mentioning if your system is in the bedroom or somewhere else dark. No fans included. Deducting the egg mostly or the cheap feel (in a cheap case, who would have guessed?)

Other Thoughts: Got this for my birthday to use as a media server, main selling point was the amount of drive bays but this is a nice case for the money if you can deal with it not feeling the most solid.

3 out of 5 eggsit would've been a perfect case but...

Pros: - Can accommodate up to 8 x 120mm fans.
- Pretty sturdy.
- It comes with 2 dust filters (approx. 240mm x 120mm each) (front bezel and bottom slots where the PSU is located))
- internal usb 3 header with a usb 2.0 adaptor built in the same cord.
- pretty secure tool less holders for the 5.25" drive bays.

Cons: The way to install your optical drives/5.25" accessories will get in the way of cleaning your front fans and front filter. .

To install the drive/s, the bezel has to be placed first before you slide it in because the hole is too small for your optical drive's face plate. Which becomes a problem when you want to clean the front dust filter and fans because you will have to take all the optical drives/ card reader out including having to unplug the wires in the back just to take the bezel off to clean the filter and the fans.

I realize some don't bother cleaning their fans or dust filters and just vacuum the front of their case, but from my experience, it doesn't really get cleaned.

Other Thoughts: If anyone is just like me who likes to periodically clean their fans and filters but don't want to have to remove and unplug their optical drives... either file the bezel to alleviate the fit or cut the front bezel in half using a hot knife or a saw (so you'll only need to remove the bottom bezel if you need to clean the filters and fans.

Personally, I had the tools necessary so I ended up cutting it in half with a stationary saw.

5 out of 5 eggsUnexpected Results

Pros: i have to say i mat have been more than a tiny bit skeptical when ordering this tower. it fits my 120mm thermaltake 2.0 water cooler as an exhaust with no issue, and two rosewill intake fans on the top with plenty of clearance. i still have room for 5 more 120-140mm fans, unfortunatley my MOBO doesnt support more..... i was not upset in the least that it came with no fans, because i planned on getting my own white led fans anyway.

Cons: the only con that i have about the entire case is the simple fact that the pci slot locking mechanism is slightly hard ot understand at first. If this were my first build, i would be befuddled at the lack of instructions.

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly, the amount of cable management in this case is far greater than my other two $80+ cases. The airflow will be far more than superb once i change out my old 870s-g46 MOBO. this will be my new staple for pc building on the side.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Economy Case

Pros: Solid, black Interior, good cable management, looks good, up to 8 120mm fans (I am currently running 6, all excluding the side panel). I am very happy with the purchase.

Cons: Front side LEDs are a bit much, so I unplugged them. When running 6x 120mm fans, a better intake filter system would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Or maybe I should dust more.

4 out of 5 eggsnice little case

Pros: cheap! lots of room for expansion. dust filter. nice appearance. nice cutouts around board for cable management.

Cons: a little on cheap side but functional. no fans included. at least one would have been nice. if you plan on moving your case around a lot I would go with a sturdier case.

Other Thoughts: they should have included one fan. they cost what maybe "2.00" on newegg retail.
