5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: - Dust covers on the front / top / bottom

- PWM Case fans, front and back, quiet too

- Excellent build quality, I had fairly low expectations, it being a plastic and steel case. No bare steel to be seen, everything was well covered in whatever colour you choose.

- Side panel ports of high quality - nice quality power button with a distinctive clicky feel.

- No problem lifting a final build with the top "handles"

- Overall just a really nice case!

Cons: - Mine was missing a motherboard standoff screw and a power supply screw, but both items came with their own hardware as well, so I was covered.

Other Thoughts: - The Power Supply area is quite small, I wasn't using 3.5 harddrives so that cage area had to be modified to fit an EVGA 750W PS. No big deal though.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat quality, value, and layout.

Pros: Sturdy side panels, everything fits nicely for this price range. I very much like the SSD bays! It will take the biggest CPU air coolers. Doesn't look or feel cheap. Handles are sturdy and functional as well as feet slide on carpet.

Cons: A little tight for a modular PSU to accommodate their plugs, but I did it (would be much nicer to have a PSU back-plate and slide PSU in from the back). 200mm front fan moves VERY LITTLE air being caged by metal hex on inside, and hex and filter on front. I used nippers and removed the inside hex and other metal restricting air flow, and now actually blows air in, and very quiet!!! 120mm fan on back is noisy, replaced with quieter 140mm.

Other Thoughts: Put a 12" blue LED light tube on top window side, pointing horizontal inward. Nice soft effect!

4 out of 5 eggsHad the potential to be the perfect case

Pros: *The horizontal motherboard orientation is great for those using tower type cpu coolers as it keeps the weight evenly distributed as opposed to a vertical orientation where the cooler hangs off the motherboard.
*I do love the cube form factor.
*The power button has an awesome firm tactile "click" feel when pressed.
*The whole chassis feels well built and sturdy.
*Dedicated 2.5" drive bays
*With the proper fans and case modification, I was able to achieve great cooling capabilities while keeping the computer extremely silent.
*Ample room for custom power supply modular cabling and cable routing.

Cons: *Each riveted interior panel was not electrically grounded to its adjoining panel due to the interior being painted. I have to break out my Dremel, sandpaper and multimeter and spend hours sanding, grinding and taking resistance readings to ensure the entire chassis was ESD safe.
*I would prefer that both side panels be solid instead of one having a tinted window, or any window for that matter. In addition, the acrylic window is flimsy.
*The side facing USB and audio ports are pointless. I removed them.
*The foam material used as a filter for the front panel intake is too restrictive on airflow. Xigmatek should have used the same woven nylon filter element as the top filter on the front and made the front grille magnetic also.
*The bottom plastic rails do not come with rubber feet to keep the case from sliding around or scratching the rails. Luckily for me, I have an abundance of rubber bump-ons, as they are called. The bottom rails also bow slightly under the weight of my case and components.
*The power button is slightly wobbly when pressed anywhere but in the center. Also, the button is not illuminated.
*The front panel of the case is held on by friction alone. A case of this price should have a front panel mounted by fasteners.
*No built-in zip-tie mounts like my Silverstone PS07B

Other Thoughts: *I replaced the factory 200mm fan with a 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro in order to achieve better positive pressure in the case.
*Also using the aforementioned Dremel, I removed the fan grille from the front of the metal chassis to increase the intake's potential for airflow.
*For me, the top intake/exhaust is useless. I used a custom cut sheet of .177" thick ABS black plastic to replace the filter/grille and seal the hole off.
*I would prefer the power button have a solid feel all around and be self-illuminated (the power symbol on the button could be a clear plastic with the power LED shining through).
*Xigmatek should have added a few more quality and feature touches to make the price of the case easier to swallow.

I moved to this case from a Silverstone PS07B. Sometimes, I ask myself, "Why?". At $45 less, Silverstone has applied more attention to quality on the PS07B than Xigmatek did on the Aquila. My only gripe with the PS07B was the door on the front panel. I hate doors on pc cases.

5 out of 5 eggsXigmatek Aquila

Pros: It is a unique case design, not like the average black-box PC case. It has an excellent array of cooling options, plenty of fan mounts. It can host mini-ITX or micro-ATX motherboards (mine is Micro-ATX). Both of the 3-pin fans that came with it are pleasantly quiet (1 x 200mm in front and 1 x 120mm rear). The side panel window is a nice touch.

Cons: Mostly minor nitpicking here. The motherboard mount cut-out is too small, no reason it could not be larger. Internally the power button's assembly is dangerously close to an optical drive if one is installed, so be very careful, cautious, and gentle if installing a 5.25" drive. It could do with just one more inch of length to make PSU installation and options more flexible. My Corsair HX650M was a tight fit, but it fit fine. Would be nice to have rubber pads on the base legs, but I have no vibration problems as I am not using any hard drives at the moment that might cause such vibrations. I did not receive full packaging parts - missing 1 x 2.5" drive rubber mount. Someone at the factory cannot count to eight apparently. I should detract an egg for this, but I will not do so. I suspect when I install another 2.5" drive the remaining 3 (instead of 4) mounts is going to work fine. The cost of the case is quite high, over-priced, but for its uniqueness I was willing to pay the entry fee.

Other Thoughts: I did a lot of homework before buying this case. I knew the Cons well before I decided to buy, explaining why I did not detract any eggs off the rating - I knew what I was in for ahead of time. This was a really easy case to build in, and personally I like the look of it very much.

5 out of 5 eggsnice case

Pros: This is a very nice case. Very well made, and the horizontal motherboard plate works perfectly with the EVGA Z 97 Stinger. The Corsair 1050 PSU fits perfectly in the base of it.

As a project for my son, I ordered all the parts for a new gaming rig. We built it together, and started with and opened first this case. He nearly fell over as did I. We couldn't be happier. My other rig is housed in an Antec 1200 tower which is also a fantastic case.

If you're going to build a new rig, give this case your consideration. This case now sits next to an acrylic rig as well as the 1200 antec and coupled with the BenQ G-Sync monitor and Vengeance keyboard, it's exactly what we were hoping for.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The Corsair H100i is currently sticking out of the roof of it, but we're still working on it.

5 out of 5 eggsmakes people say "woah"

Pros: Very cool design. Seeing my 970 through the window is very cool. At first cable management seemed like it was going to be a hassle but there's actually a lot of room to work with.

Cons: Not very much fan space. That being said it does stay cool.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful, just awful

Pros: It's a square?

Cons: - Missing pieces
- Missing wires for connections
- Cannot hold a decent power supply as the bay area is extremely small

Tried this case with a build I was recommended and not one piece was good with it. If you have a decent size CPU cooler, it won't fit well (I had an H80i). PSU has to be small as the non cheap ones will be way too big and make it impossible for you to connect power to anything. Normal screw bay for video card securing is replaced with some awful mechanism that doesn't work. For 110 bucks, you are wasting at least 50 of it. Buy a coolermaster or aztec as they actuall yknow what the yare doing.

4 out of 5 eggsXigmatek Aquila Black Steel Micro-ATX Cube Chassis CCD-14ABW-U01

Pros: This is a great case. Plenty of room to work and manage cabling. Good ventilation, system stays cool under constant heavy load and it looks like a million bucks. I just have a few small gripes (See cons).

Cons: 1. The wire joints for the power button rest pretty tightly on top of my 5¼" optical drive. Inserting/removing the drive causes drag on the joints and with the drive installed, it presses against the joints with a good amount of pressure.
2. There is no reset button as with most traditional cases. It wouldn't seem to hard to drill a hole and install one as I am a big fan of the reset button!
3. I still use 3½" floppy disks on rare occasions and I have a drive that has a built-in multi card reader in my old system that I use a lot. There is a cut-out for a 3½" drive bay but no cage to mount one. Not sure if a mount cage can be purchased separately so I'll have to research that. These gripes are worthy of my deducting 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: Over all I really like this case and would recommend it to others. Above all, be careful if you plan on installing a 5¼" drive of a sort. Repeated removal/replacement is likely to eventually ruin your power button functionality.

5 out of 5 eggsXigmatek has outdone themselves!

Pros: I am completely impressed with this case. It offers a nice sleek look to your space, and even with its small form factor, it still leaves a good amount room for future expansion.

The front 200mm intake fan has four white LEDs at each corner of the fan, which aren't too bright, and create a nice look as the fans are powered on.
It is almost completely dust proof--save for the rear exhaust, which isn't too big of a deal since it is after all blowing air away from the encasement.

Each of the support bars are surprisingly stable, even though they are plastic, and come in handy when carrying your computer places.

The USB, headphone, and mic ports are located conveniently on the side of the case by the window. It is nice to see this feature integrated on this case, as other manufacturers fall short of this (BitFenix Prodigy).

The tinted side window looks fantastic on the side of the case. Get an LED strip inside and you will be amazed.

Cons: The latch nubs, which hold the detachable front of the case which contains access to the 200mm fan and the dust filter, are made out of cheap plastic that can brake if one is not careful. This is not an issue with me, but it could pose a problem for one who is not careful.

Other Thoughts: This is the first case that I have owned, however, I have looked at pretty much every case review on YouTube out there. This has given me a lot of knowledge on this particular subject. I am very pleased with this case, and I think that you might be also.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat M-atx case

Pros: lots of space,not some giant tower that takes up all my desktop.solid.good air flow.plenty of room for my coolermaste V8 heat sink and a fan above it.no longer is my heat sink weight a problem hanging from my M-board as it now sits straight up and down.11.5 inch vid card fits with plenty of room.

Cons: real tough to get an 850 watt corsair power supply in,had to take ssd holder out and disassemble 1 side of the case. the usb cables are way to long for any build this case could handle making wire routing harder than needs.

Other Thoughts: gona buy another for my outher compute and get it out of its large case.
