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.)

5 out of 5 eggsamazing case for the money!

Pros: -Tool free bays
-Ships with 4 fans
-cable routing(!!!!!!!)
-PSU mounts to the bottom
-for the money, very solid and well built
a friend of mine bought this case from a local shop when I was building her a PC. I loved it so much I had to get one!

Cons: Nothing worh taking an egg for! see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: The only issue I have is that I guess when I first took off the front bezel to remove the DVD drive cover, I may have bent the plastic a bit or something. even with the bezel fully clipped in, there is a small gap between it and the actual case towards the bottom. I honestly, don't mind though! The hint of the blue light from the fan looks really good in the dark haha

also, to anyone who gets this case! Make sure to update your Realtek audio drivers!!!! Use the HD Drivers, not the normal ones. This will correct the issue a lot of people may be having where either the front and/or rear headphone/mic inputs don't work or sounds a little weird.

5 out of 5 eggsCase is great!

Pros: This case came in today and after reading some of the reviews I wasn't sure what I was going to get. Opened it up and the case looks brand new! Still has all the plastic on it, screws, and everything with it. Tested the 4 fans and everything work great.

Cons: One of wires running to a molex connector (the green and white wires that lights up the power button) the white one came off the pin but nothing a little solder can fix.

Other Thoughts: Great case, I don't know what happen to the cases below but this is a great deal.

5 out of 5 eggsWowza

Pros: Good lookin case. Came with everything. 6 sets of hdd mounts and all the screws, 4 fans which I guess are cooler master fans.. that say diablotek on them. DF1202512SELN is the fan model.

Cons: Was going to order another, now it's discontinued :(

Bezel isn't easily removable. Gotta replace that front fan w/ one that doesn't have a bright LED.

Other Thoughts: I feel like I've made a great purchase. Thanks newegg!
