3 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive fun 06/04/2010

This review is from: APEVIA X-CRUISER2-AL Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

It's a cheap, flashy case, I like the gauges and the pseudo-50's American car styling. Comes with fan controller, a few big fans (2 are LED, 1 isn't) and plenty of 3.5" drive slots.

The essential aspects of the case work. Can support some tool-less methods.

Can be quiet at idle, with the door closed and fans turned down.

Cons:

-Audio VU circuit isn't good.
-Front cover/door creaks. Spend a couple a couple minutes routing the wires coming from this and things improve a bit.
-The cases overall depth is too short to accommodate my EVGA GTX 260 without sacrificing a couple 3.5" slots (by about an inch).
-There's a muffler on the side panel fan, while reducing noise does impact the airflow, easily removed.
-Only comes with screws.
-Temperature probe only reaches about halfway across the case if it's routed alongside the 5.25" bays.
-Inlet port in the door for the front fan is pitiful, open the door or get busy with the dremel.

Other Thoughts:

Overall, I like this case. When I bought it, the other cases at this price point were made worse or didn't have as many features (as cheesy as some of them are). Yeah, the fan controller is simple, and the gauges aren't terribly accurate, but I bought it with the intention of modding it a bit anyways, kind of like the 50's cars it's styled after.
-1 Egg for not being 1" deeper for giant video cards.
-1 Egg for cheap electrics, only providing screws and not having a larger aperture in the door.

Manufacturer Response:

The X-Cruiser2 comes with three 120mm case fans; only one (the side panel) lights up. The other two do not LED.
