4 out of 5 eggsGood looking case

Pros: This is a very good looking case, and the blue lights really add a nice glow. Lots of extra mounts for additional fans.

Cons: Cooling is not the greatest stock. I recommend that you move the 80mm fan in the rear to the front, and purchase additional 80mm for the cover and a second in front, as well as a 120mm for the back of the case.

Other Thoughts: With the stock heat sink on the processor, I was able to use the cooling tube on the cover. Once I upgraded the CPU cooling, I had to remove the cooling tube. Not a big deal, just a note.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good looking case, LEDs are nice. Lots of room.

Cons: Temperature probe is way to short. Instruction guide should be included. Adjustable fan control is poorly designed. Rear fan ahould be 120mm no 80. Power button should be on the outside of the door. Edges on case are very sharp.

5 out of 5 eggsSERIOUSLY????

Pros: Fantastic case!!! beautiful design. really killer look. the name of my company is X-Computers..... (not listed, dont try to search it lol) and the big X shape in the front is freakin sick!. air flow is alright, but can be fixed with a little modding and an addition of 120mm fans. running Arctice Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, and also Masscool Syrin kuformula Ultra HDD cooler. at idle, 28C, full load 38C. (PUT EXTRA VENTS)

Cons: none so far!

Other Thoughts: seriously?!?!?! you can never put dell parts into a regular aftermarket case. dell computers are specialized to the smallest detail!!! anyone whos anyone should know that!

3 out of 5 eggsMediocre case

Pros: This case is great for a build if you want bright blue lights and don't care about airflow. There's space enough for larger cards in this case as well however Not sure about the GTX 200 series cards (9800 GTX fit just fine) There's also pleanty of 80mm fan slots as well. At first the Case front looked very attractive and bright with the LEDs Also has a fan controller (which doesnt really effect the fans sound that much but drastically reduces airflow)

Cons: This case's airflow is just decent. My first gripe is that it only has 80mm fans instead of 120mm. It also only contains one 80mm fan and a 120mm built in, so if you want increased airflow you need to purchase more. Biggest problem with 80mm fans is you have an increased amount of sound for a far lower amount of airflow, so with 4 80mm fans you'll have quite a bit louder case than one with two 120mm fans (which may just cool better)

Also, if adding any CPU heatsink other than the intel/AMD supplied you'll have to remove/replace the vent on the side of the case. If you replace it with an 80mm fan you'll have to check your cooler for clearance. I was barely able to install a ZALMAN 9500A 92mm heat sink with clearance.

Another major issue for me is adding the two front 80mm fans to the case. Simply because of the front panel being a Pain in the harsh to remove with all the cables and shotty wiring job hiding behind there.

Case also gets very annoying to look at after a while...

Other Thoughts: As a preference, I'd go with another case, probably one from antec or CoolerMaster. If you want a low end gaming/enthusiast case I'd buy the Antec 300 and put two TriCool fans of your color choice in the front. Not only can you adjust the fans to run cooler (internally only), but you'd have a quieter case too. I'd prefer my own fan controller for a 5.25" external slot over a built in one on the front panel simply because it gets you simplified wiring. After using this for about a month I decided to opt for the Antec 900. Not only does it run cooler, but it looks better after a few personal modifications of mine.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I got my item very quickly

Cons: I took my old Dell and the new case to the shop to take everything out of my dell and put it into the new case. They couldn't plug everything up because the plugs are different, the computer kept shutting down within 2 mins of running. It is now have a brand new empty case that I'm going to build up myself

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Very sturdy and roomy. Fans provide good airflow. I love the blue LEDs and it looks great at night. Top fan is placed far enough forward that my power supply has plenty of extra space.

Cons: The top fan is perhaps too far forward as it gets in the way of drives in the top most drive bay. But with 3 other drive bays to choose from, it isn't a big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case to work with!

Pros: Great style case that's easy to work with! I was able to get into the case and work with a lot of the components very easily! The LED Fans look great and the thermometer/Fan speed controller is a nice addition! (Even though I dont use the speed controller much)

Cons: There are only two 80mm fans in this case. I Ended up buying two more 80mm fans and replaced the rear 80mm with a 120mm and moved the older one elsewhere. The top fan also has to be removed to fit most PSUs into the case, however if you use an ANTEC 850watt modular power supply you can put the fan back after installing the PSU

Other Thoughts: Extra fans installed into the system may not be compatible with the fan speed controller on the front of the case. The fans I bought had their own fan speed controllers that werent directly compatible and thus had to be installed with a seperate controller. The case is really nice to look at as well!

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Pretty Good Case

Pros: Really cool looking case, with some nice fans and fan controls.
This thing lights up pretty well at night. Especially the front face. Sure looks good at night.

Cons: The side fan has a tube-ish like deal pointing straight at the mobo/cpu area. I know this gives the CPU fan better/cooler air but it can get in the way of some cables. Or some cables can get in the way of the airflow.

Other Thoughts: Although this case has fans all over the place, I personally would've preferred if the side fan was not a tiny 120mm fan.
Give me a 140mm+ sized fan and that would REALLY get the air moving.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case

Pros: Roomy and keeps cool. Whoever said the bottom will scratch your desk must have forgotten to attach the feet..

Cons: The top fan must be removed for almost any power supply, so its mostly useless. I put it on the front, instead.
