1 out of 5 eggsI hate this case

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: Looks cool. Good quiet fans.

Cons: This case is tight and cramped. The stupid side panel and wiring makes getting to anything a pain. And that's the side you access your HDD's from. What a stupid design. The ports/power are on the right side of the case, and most MB's are going to have the connectors on the left. So, your wires stretch all the way through the case, and are attached to the panel you need to remove to get to a hard drive. With a decent sized Graphics card in there, the Audio/USB wires are taut. In addition, you can't easily tip the case or move it with that stupid side panel still attached.

No quick release. Limited room for graphics cards unless you remove the 3.5" bay. Side fan speed control doesn't work. LED's are not dimmable as claimed. Power button sticks.

Other Thoughts: I really cannot emphasize enough how bad the rat's nest of wires on the side panel are. With audio and USB connectors that barely reach the connectors on my MB. Since HDD's are the primary reason you have to open your case, putting them all on the "freakin' impossible to remove" side is colossally dumb. Reverse the PS/HDD layout on the bottom and it's 4 eggs. On the other side.... You have wires from the fan controllers that are 3x as long as they need to be. Why? Nowhere to put any extra cables from your PS, no tie down points to keep wiring away from fans. VERY limited room for PS. Side power button also sticks if not pushed just right. LED lights are NOT dimmable. I HATE this case. Threw all my stuff in a $20 nothing case and I am much happier. Mini ITX compromises on a case that's bigger than a mid tower.

5 out of 5 eggsDeepcool steam castle

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: I baught 2 Steam castles, one is black and the other is white.
This black version is rubberized on top and front panel while the white version is just glossy. At first I didn't know why deepcool do that and i finally i got it after 4 months of usage.
Having different finishes actually made the the best out of different colors. Rubberized black feels good quality and glossy white doesn't feel cheap at all. They would not feel the same if they were other way around.

+ Well built and sturdy
+ Unique looks
+ Horizontal mobo mounting
+ Preinstalled 1*200mm and 1*120mm fans
+ Side window

Cons: Cables from the side panel can be difficult for some people.

Other Thoughts: The instruction is not so clear. The m S-ATA cable that goes from the side panel should be connected to power supply not anywhare on the motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsDeepcool Steamcastle

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: The number 1 reason to buy this would be the appearnce. The picture does not do it justice and it is absolutely stunning. I ordered the rubberized black version which is sharp as a tuxedo. The front and top popped off with no problem for installation. This is the first micro build and since I have large hands the horizontal layout for the motherboard installation has been a breeze being able to have both sides of the case opened up.

Cons: The only con I have found is the top fan mounts. (missing egg) They sit REALLY close to the top cover. So close I had to reroute the LED wires for the faux fans on top. The case comes with rubber bushings which helped some to gap it. No matter what I was going to do, what I had to do, to add fans in this thing. If you are planning to use a large radiator for water cooling the you should be OK. However, be weary it's not a seal to the ouside air. You may be drawing air from inside the case at the back end since it is open. With that being said I see opportunity to run water cooling hoses for a closed loop up and out the top at the back to place radiator outside without chopping. That is granted the hoses are long enough. Also, if you plan on using both fan slots on top you have to remove the optical drive bay to benefit from air flow or water cooling. To be honest who needs a DVD drive other than installing Windows? After that plug in as needed or get an external.

2 out of 5 eggsCool case. Be wary

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: Awesome case with plenty of fans.

Cons: The mobo mount is sideways. As in, it lays flat in the case. i made the mistake of not measuring my mobo before buying this case and when i went to install my sabertooth 990fx R2.0 the other end was sticking 2-3 inches out of the case on the other side.

Other Thoughts: tl;dr make sure your mobo isn't too long to fit in the case when it lays flat.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsOriginal and Functional

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: -Lots of space to work with
-Great for a uATX mobo
-PSU fits perfect (i suggest getting a modular one)
-Included fans perform a lot better than I expected
-Black one attracts NO fingerprints whatsoever
-I love the pulsating LED effect
-Drive cage works great

Cons: -I would have liked to see little hooks or something in the bottom of the case to zip tie cables to
-The included I/O cables could've benefited from a little bit extra length
-Fan controller isn't the best one out there (barely changes the spped on the fans)
-Fans are kind of loud (although they move a lot of air in my opinion)

Other Thoughts: I would totally recommend this if you want a case with a lot of space, room for upgrades and aren't into modding cases. I could also see the case giving a though time if you want a front radiator.

4 out of 5 eggsSteam Castle (black)

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: I received my Steam Castle quickly. It was as advertised and larger than expected. The paint and finish are very good and the case does not feel flimsy

Cons: Only two cons, the first and most annoying is the 2.5 drive bay not having a cutout in the front of the case. The slot is allocated on the inside of the case, but there is not outside cutout or removable cover. The second issue is the bevel to adjust light/fan speed does not function.

Other Thoughts: Larger than expected

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent for the price

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: A lot of features for the price, excellent build quality, good looks. Very quiet! Integrated fan controller and LEDs good at this price point. Edges are nice and rounded so you won't need to bleed when you build. All kinds of built in sound reduction, and well laid out.

Cons: Cable management could be better. The instrument cluster being on the side panel make it difficult to route those cables during the build. Not many options to tie down cable inside the chassis.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (BLACK) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC(ABS)+RUBBER COATING

Pros: I was looking for a smaller case since I'm really using my computer for occasional gaming and didn't really need a full size tower. I really got this because it looks really cool. I was a little worried about the layout of the motherboard horizontally above the Power Supply; however, after having it since November I don't have any overheating issues.

Lights are cool

Cons: The fan controller knob doesn't work on mine, but I'm not going to turn the fans down anyway so its not a big deal.

It also took some effort to get everything in there the right way.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a nice case that doesn't really take up a lot of room than this is the case for you. You might want to get a Modular Power supply so you don't have a ton of cables squeezed into unused areas of the case.
