3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Adequate size
Multiple bays
3 fans

Cons: Overall , it's a good case for the money but this was a first time build for me and next time I will buy a slightly bigger case that allows for better wire management.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Ordered this case after the first one i ordered was not the one i needed. After this one came in the mail i looked it over and liked it a lot. It has great airflow for mid tower builds and two additional spots on the side for more 120mm fans which was a plus side for me. Case has lots of room and has a simple look to it.

Cons: I didn't like how the hard drive area was made, with it pointing to the side it takes some work to get the cables in there and closed up. I also feel that the legs should be taller to maximize airflow for the bottom mounted power supplies.

Other Thoughts: Decent case that earned 4 egg's from me but the hard drive area and the power supply area could have used more work.

4 out of 5 eggsNicely Done

Pros: - 4 fans
- removable filter for the bottom mounted ower supply
- removable filter for front fan
- tool-less design
- front USB ports
- cable management
- black on the inside

Cons: - no filter for the side fans
- 2.5" tray takes up an HD bay instead of the internal floppy bay
- top fans block top 5.25" bay and the HSF I was using didn't work with them either
- swapped front fan with a top one so I wouldn't have a blue fan staring out of my rack

Other Thoughts: - plugs are clearly marked and go in place easily, good length
- borderline gamers case
- the little "phillips" socket for the stand-offs is now a permanent part of my tool kit

4 out of 5 eggssturdy case bad motherboard spacers

Pros: Sturdy case, cable management is good as long as you organize your cables well so case can go back on. This is a good case except for the con down below.

Cons: Case motherboard mount holes are poorly taped and the motherboard back cover is really thin, tighten down the studs to hard and you can easily strip out the holes. This is about the only con, except case fans don't seem to move much air but my CPU and graphic card seem to stay really cooler then the last case.

3 out of 5 eggsDiablotek EVO

Pros: Case came with 4/6 fans which is ultimately why i bought this case over the other one (cooler master elite 430). spent most of my $$ on parts so i was on a budget and this seemed to have worked for me

Cons: key words: seemed to have worked for me

upon installation, 1 fan was DOA, and the ones that worked did not move too much air. I felt my 80mm fans from an old case would've done the same job.

i thought the drive bays would've been convenient (tool-less design) but the hdd bay seemed backwards. It's like i'd have to dedicate one cable just for the hdd.
top fan blocks the top drive bay so you can't even use it. drive bay cover was a pain to take out and once you do, you can't put it back on because it gets bent. so if you try to install an optical drive on top, realize it's blocked by the fan, you end up having to use the next one down and you're out two drive bay covers. luckily i was able to bend one of them back so i can cover the top.

cable management sucked. no places to hide cables

Other Thoughts: air flow is great if all fans worked properly. terrible cable management, terrible bays.

if you're on a budget, this should work for you if you have patience because i'm sure there's a way to manage the cables. if you can spend a little more, get something else and don't rely on the pre-installed fans for cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case!

Pros: -mostly tool-less design that works very well!
-Lots of fans included! 4 FANS!
-Re-useable, vented PCI expansion slot covers
-bottom mounted Power supply
-nice power button feel (has depth and good feedback)
-good number of front USB ports (3)
-lots of vents for great air-flow! all of the front is dust filtered mesh. most of back is mesh. nice side panel mesh where 2 additional fans can be installed
-"ok" cable management
-All black on the inside
-It just look NICE!

Cons: the cut-outs are all there for routing your 24 pin MB power cable behind the MB tray and yet when it is routed behind the MB tray, the right side panel is a big pain to put on. I managed to shove it on, but the right side bows a bit.
All the included fans use molex connections (speed cannot be controlled using software) and are a pain to wire together out of the way (I had to rotate the rear fan so the cable would be long enough to get to the others). The right angled SATA ports on my MoBo where kinda hard to wire.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong, I really love this case and may use it again! I first saw this case at Micro Center and was impressed by how practical and sleek it looked!

I used it to build my family a new PC
-AMD A8 APU
-GIGABYTE GA-A75-D3H
-ADATA XPG Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 RAM
-Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W
-This Case
-Blu-Ray Burner
-DVD Burner
- 320 GB Caviar Blue Western Digital Hard Drive
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
-Biostar USB 3.0 Front Panel Bracket

Some of the front panel connections went through one hole of to the side while others went through the only external 3.5 bay. I roughed them all through the hole off to the side and it seems to work nicely.

4 out of 5 eggsSo close, but so far away.

Pros: -Nice design
-Fits average-sized components well
-Lots of drive bays
-support for 2.5" SSDs
-pretty good airflow for stock fans

Cons: -Molex fans(may not be a con for some, but with this case being so small, the extra wires to hide are a pain)
-Unusable top 5.25" bay, due to the placement of the top exhaust fans
-Absolutely no room behind the motherboard tray for much cable management. I was only able to get the SATA power/data cables behind it.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a pretty decent case, for this price point especially. If Diablotek would have done the following, it would be almost perfect:

1)Include all 3 pin/4 pin PWM fans
2)Inset the motherboard tray, to allow for cable management
3)Make the case a little wider to accommodate cables behind the motherboard tray, as well as tall CPU heatsinks(my CM Hyper 212+ has about 1/16 of an inch between the heat pipes and the left side panel
4)Make it about 2-3 inches taller, to allow for E-ATX motherboards, as well as make room for the top optical drive bay to be usable
5)Have an option to remove part of the hard drive cage, to accommodate for long graphics cards
6)Include a USB 3.0 port or two on the front panel
7)Make the cable routing holes larger
8)Make the CPU back plate cutout larger
9)Include rubber grommets on the cable mgmt. holes
10)Make a windowed side panel option

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget gaming case.

Pros: Good quality all around, four 120mm extra quiet fans standard with room for two more, lowered my temps over 15 degrees!
Bottom mounted psu with a filtered bottom air cutout, really solid cable management, nice finish inside and out.
Small touches like foam covered panels on the front mesh(NO DUST) and tool less design that actually works(not too many can claim that at any price...)are nice pluses for the price.

Cons: Only one,and I didnt take off an egg for it:
The way the hard drives go in is reversed from the norm, as in the connections are facing to the motherboard side(the HD cage is sideways)...a little tricky getting the cables routed properly. Not a deal killer, just thought it should be mentioned.

Other Thoughts: For the money, this is a killer deal. It is well constructed with thick steel and obvious thought given to details, has a really nice look to it, has plenty of cooling standard, and is simply a must buy if your looking for a budget gaming build.
As an aside, I wish folks on here wouldnt take eggs off for damage done by UPS, its not fair to the product being reviewed, just my two cents on that...if you dont want to take a chance on UPS damaging your case, buy it locally ;)

4 out of 5 eggsWeak fans, stable case, tight hdd space.

Pros: Six places to install some 120mm fans. 1 front, 2 top, 2 side, and 1 back.

The grills in front come with sponges to prevent dust from coming in.

Cons: The 3 fans that came with the case were a bit lacking in power, I recommend adding more fans or replacing the ones which came with the case.

Connecting the cables to the sata drives is a stubborn situation. The wires have to be strung through the case to the mobo side of the case and the drives are all very close which makes the data connectors fight for space.

Other Thoughts: If the hard drive bays enabled me to alternate the rotation of the drives to avoid sata data cable fights, I would have given this 5 stars.

Also, if you sleep in the same room with the case, then move the blue fan to the back. It's very bright, like a blue night light.
