5 out of 5 eggsDiablotek EVO is Best

Pros: Tons of fans for cooling (1 in the back, 2 on the top, and one in the front with mounting spots on the side panel for 2 more)
Great airflow
Excellent cable management
Rubber pads for power supply noise reduction
Comes with special SSD caddy
Can have up to 5 HDD mounted and 4 optical drive (not sure why you would want that)

Cons: All the fans are molex-powered (none of the fans are power by a 3 or 4 pin motherboard connector)

Other Thoughts: Chose this case for a friend who wanted to build a mid-range gaming PC and this case was a good find. It's got plenty of room for all of the components, amazing cable management, and excellent air flow with the 4 fans it comes with, but the only issue I'm having is that all of the fans that come with this case are molex-powered. Was hoping at least two of them were powered by the motherboard...oh well.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat case for the price

Pros: has 4x120 fans 1 being a blue led, it has a black finsh inside the case......... and it was only 19.99 and also mine came not broken i guess i got lucky

Cons: no screws and no motherboard spacers..... also one of the front meshs was pushed in, but was a easy fix, if your looking for cable management, your looking at the wrong case..... but what do u expect for a 20 dollar case....

Other Thoughts: this is the 2nd case like this i have bought, both have turnt out atleast 4 out of 5 eggs, it was fast shipping and came unharmed

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely errible

Pros: x3 120mm f ans x1 blue led 120mm fan
are the only pros about this case

Cons: Everythin about this case is terrible when igot it today everything was broken on it I have read some the review and i was hoping mine wouldn't be as terrible but once i hand the boxy hands i could already hear the tattling of the broken pieces, and it got worst when i actually opened the box and seen the travesty that i purchased. to save a few bucks I got this case and it was a steel case so seemed legit but the amount damage on this case was a horrific nightmare.

Other Thoughts: I won't be skimping out of cheap cases anymore......

5 out of 5 eggsWe shall se

Pros: -Place holder for when item arrices I have heard they come missing things, which is somewhat understandable since they are refurbished but it will be disappointing if it arrives missing fans, bays etc I can understand scratches and dents.

Cons: -Place Holder

4 out of 5 eggsLuck of the Draw

Pros: Deep enough to accommodate CM Hyper 212 Plus
4 fans
An adapter that can handle two 2.5" HDs or SSDs
Bottom mount PSU
Nice cutout behind motherboard for easy heat-sink removal
Air filter for the PSU

Cons: Not enough space behind motherboard for cable routing.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of the Refurb Diablotek Evo RPA-6170.
One was perfect. The other, not so much. The front panel had sheared off with all 10 plastic connectors broken. It was unusable so had to do an RMA.
It appears there are more than one warehouse "refurbing" these cases.
If you get lucky the case is a steal.
Went ahead and ordered two more, based on the case's depth in accommodating my beloved CM hyper plus heat sink and the bottom mount PSUs

4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: Diablotek EVO RPA-6170 Black 0.6mm SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Works great! Lots of room, tons of cooling with 4 fans, great price for what you get! Purchased this about 6 months ago..

Cons: The only con is that the power button doesn't work, so instead I plugged the "Reset" cord into the "Power" connector on my motherboard. Works the same, just when I want to turn on my computer I press "Reset" instead of the power button.. And a couple bolts were missing, but nothing too serious.

Other Thoughts: Still working great, would've liked to have a side panel to see the insides of my computer but it's all good.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case for any price

Pros: This case amazed me when I first opened it.

I'll admit, I didn't read the description too closely. I filtered the cases by cheapest and highest rated, and compared the top dozen that were ATX full tower. I knew this case would do what I needed for cheap, so I bought it.

Where to begin on the impressive things I didn't expect:

Non-pathetic fans. A small feature, but having four included fans that aren't garbage is nice.

Motherboard cutout: installing the heatsink is a breeze when you can take off both case sides and access the back of the CPU socket. I don't plan in liquid cooling this CPU, but if I was it would have made life a whole lot easier than the last two I did.

Liquid cooling holes in the top of the rear panel: I'm not using them and won't be, but they're a nice touch on a budget case.

Fan filter: easily removable slides over the bottom fan. This is a plus, since I have two fur-covered parasites that like to sleep near my computers.

Tool less drive bays for the 5.25" drives: saved me four screws lol. They're sturdy and attractive, also.

Oh yeah, the entire case interior is a powder finish black, very very attractive. I didn't care about the interior when I bought it, I just checked for beveled edges because I'm past the point in my teens where it was worth saving $3 on a case and cutting my hands on edges everywhere. it is amazingly well thought out, with excellent cord reach and good cable management built in, another unexpected plus.

The PSU is mounted on the bottom, which I prefer, keeping the center of gravity low and avoiding dangling power cables.

The case is light, well made, and very well thought out. If it wasn't refurbished, I would expect a case like this to go for up to $100. I have no idea what the actual retail is on new cases.

Cons: When I first got it, the back panel adjacent to the I/O shield slot was caved in. I mean caved in as if someone had hit it with a ballpeen. I checked the box to see if I had missed a giant hole where someone had kicked it in transit, but the box was fine and the styrofoam holding the case was also in perfect shape: the box left the factory/warehouse/etc. with the panel caved in. I'm guessing that's why it was called refurbished. Lately more and more 'refurb' items really mean damaged and discounted, not repaired and discounted. I spent 30 seconds getting upset and planning wasted money and RMAs before I pushed gently on the panel from the inside and it popped back into place. So, the moral is: the case metal is NOT thick steel. It's still plenty strong, it's just thin. Totally not worth docking an egg, and I obviously still love this case, but I am surprised that it was shipped that way. Still, an easy fix and it didn't affect the build at all. Don't let it turn you off from the case.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a 24/7 home server case. File sharing, backups, and minecraft on a low power, headless linux box with a quad core and plenty of air flow.

The plastic on the front came with a thin cellophane type cover, keeping it scratch free - a nice touch.

The front panel itself is not a latch style release: you grab the bottom and viciously rip the panel forward and up. Gently. That's right, you have to viciously pull on it while not pulling too hard. The cases I've had are split 50/50 between latch and pop tabs, so it's not like this is a new style and I actually prefer it overall, but it's always an experience trying to guess how hard to pull on a new case. Just remember to pull from the bottom and replace it starting at the top and you'll be fine.

Summary: this was bought for a cheap server, but I immediately saw it and decided I wanted another for my next budget gaming case. I have a much more expensive gaming case from two years ago, and they're actually probably equitable in terms of features. The front look is just barely old school, with the silver rim and large round power button, but style points don't matter when it comes to performance. I adore this case, and can easily see why it has one of the highest reviews on Newegg. Get it, it is worth way more than the price. (bought at 29.99 with free shipping btw.)
