5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Budget builds!

Pros: -Comes with a quiet and cool 120mm fan
-Nice gradient-like orange leds in the front
-Usb 3 and 2 work swell
-Has a gaming case look that is hard to find at this price

Cons: -Non I have been able to experience/find

Other Thoughts: I have not added any fans to the included 1 120mm and it is cooled nicely. I have an athlon 860k and an r9 270 in this case running at nice temps. Overall a great case for the price :D

3 out of 5 eggsCheap case

Pros: Only thing I can say is it looks nice for the price
I have not used it yeat but my main reason I'm leaving a review is to let people know it's very weak a cheap material on the inside

Cons: Out of all the cases of ever had,I've never seen or had the front come apart from the base of the case which doesn't make any sense,so if need be you can open from the front and pull apart or use the side panel like normal
How ever when I received the package the case looked like it was attached together but wasn't,all the front pins that snap/hold the front together was broken,I'm not sure how it happened with it being shut but there was peices everywhere and was very disappointed,good thing about it is I can tape it together because I'm I need of the case and don't feel like waiting my time waiting for another one that could happen again with the same issue,I'm building a pc and have other parts on the way,this is the first time ordering with new egg and hope the other stuff comming stays safe,by far the worst packaging I've ever seen,no effort for bubble or padding to protect your things.
Besides the case being as cheap as it is this can happen to any of your shipments,pathetic that there so cheap not to protect your stuff and that's maiknreason why there's so much returns on things

Other Thoughts: Very dissapointed with there packaging not sure if I'll ever but again hope my other stuff on the way doesn't fault or break

2 out of 5 eggsWould never buy again. Looks good, though.

Pros: Looks beautiful to me. If it wasn't made out of such cheap and flimsy materials, it would be a great case if you ask me.

Cons: Cheap. Flimsy. Side bulges if you try to put cables back there. Front panel comes off too easy, resulting in the pcb snapping in half with the usb ports in the front. No mount for front fan like shown in picture.

Other Thoughts: Bought this case on sale, disregarding reviews because I thought it looked great and I have wanted to try it out for a while. BIG mistake. Built the computer, things went smooth. Went to pick it up to take it to the client I was building it for, put my hand under the front panel to lift it out of the desk hole, and the thing COMES OFF in an upward direction, snapping the pcb in half that has the usb ports and such, and pulling all the wires off the motherboard. I guess I'm partly to blame for that, but I'm still going to knock this case down a lot for it's cheap materials and shady cable management. For the same price, get a Thermaltake or a Rosewill. I've never had any problems out of either. Just my .02 cents. Currently looking for another case so I can get my client his computer.

Pros: Cheap, looks decent, easy for wiring, water cool compatible (ish)

Cons: Arrived with broken pieces inside, I'm not sure where they came from...quite brittle, panels were loose so I had to reinforce them myself...

Other Thoughts: I couldnt fit my corsair h55 water cooler so I had to cut the panel lol...I didnt care since this thing was so cheap...

4 out of 5 eggsNot 1/2 Bad

Pros: Looks futuristic and it's orange. Will look nice once you finish building it.

Cons: It is kind of cheap but you can work With it. When i received it 1 of the PCI brackets was broken but there will be one for replacement. Many screws but you have to figure out where to put them. The manual was awful with just a few details. It is a mission to build a computer with it but if you really want " Be ready".

3 out of 5 eggsWorkable Case, but Look Elsewhere

Pros: Workable case with rear-mounted fan unit
USB 3.0 front-panel header
SSD cage
Integral stand-offs
It's a case - cheap

Cons: Horrible hardware - fortunately not much of it
Lightweight, flexible design - easily bent
Arrived slightly dented - easy to push back into (and out of) shape
Unhelpful instructions with tiny images
Impossible to reach screw to retain video card - must partially disassemble the case!

Other Thoughts: I had to use screws leftover from a previous build as the supplied hardware is soft and useless
I read the other reviews but I went ahead with this case because of the price - Don't do this! Spend a bit extra and get something workable - like Cooler Master. something else!

4 out of 5 eggsIt's ok...

Pros: It is a solid case with ok cable management, lots of screws, and good airflow with a near silent fan included.

Cons: It is not a good thing for people who will be moving their case around or opening and closing it because the build quality is great for stationary use, yet still can get dented and bent up quite a bit. The front panel connectors are not mounted in the best way and I found that taking some hot glue and going at it would be the best approach.

Other Thoughts: Otherwise this is a good case for a beginner and I can recommend it wholeheartedly FOR THIS PRICE. But if your doing an expensive build, this case would hardly do it justice. So *If you do a high quality build, do it in a different case.*

3 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It is super cheap, price wise.

It has USB 3.0 front headers.

It looks decent enough.

Has built in stand offs.

Cons: It is cheap, build quality wise. The metal is flexible, and is barely sturdy.

The HD audio front headers on my unit has a fuzzy noise to it and is completely unusable, even with realtek audio drivers install. My mobo audio output works perfect however, so I can conclude it's the faulty header.

Honestly, one usb 3.0 and one usb 2.0 ports in the front is not enough, this case could of really could benefit with 3 or even 4 usb front headers.

There is not enough clearance for large air coolers like CM hyper 212 evo for example.

Other Thoughts: This xigmatek case is pretty doable for budget and or first time builders. But it lacks a lot of premium features, like hdd bays, and a dependable build quality. I'd only recommend this to savvy builders if it's under if $40 or so bucks (bought mine when it was $30), other than that, any other name brand case or more expensive case will surpass this one.
