4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Great case, in particular for that price; I like the screwdriver-less bays and side-panels. I installed an ASUS A8N-VM CSM Socket 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, COOLER MASTER Real Power RS-450-ACLX ATX12V 450W Power Supply, 4HDs + DVD-RW, ethernet card and a sound card: Everything fit well, no problems!

Cons: You WILL need a screwdriver to pry off the front. One mounting hole (lower right corner) for my mobo was missing - not a big deal but should not happen! As others have noted, the optical drive door interferes with the open/close button on the drive when the tray is out: you will need long and slender fingers (or a pencil) to close it using the button. Some (but not all) inside corners and edges are sharp - I taped a few to prevent cutting wires.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the back-side fan coming with the case with a MASSCOOL FD12025B1L3/4 120mm Ball Case Cooling Fan; also installed one in the front, in front of the HD cage.

4 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck

Pros: Sturdy and rigid construction
Snap-in clips for front and rear 120mm fans (it only comes with a rear fan, so get another one for the front)
Front fan intake filter
Telescoping CPU tube for side air vent
Extra ventilation for add-on cards
Removable hard drive cage will accommodate for up to four drives (I took out mine since I only have one drive and placed the drive in the 3.5" slot beneath the 5.25" cage)
Plenty of space to add components
Thumbscrews for side panel
Looks good!

Cons: No power or HDD lights on the front panel and no separate reset button
The 5.25" bay covers hide the drive activity lights, but they open smoothly enough
The top front panel audio ports are headers only, which work fine with onboard/mobo sound, but I had to purchase a 3.5" media bay with jacks to plug into my Audigy 2 ZS (and you can't necessarily remove the included top front panel b/c the two top 3.5" bays are constructed as one unit and there aren't slots for a 3.5" drive at the very top)
The "reserved" FireWire slot is a doesn't exist with the included card
The tool-less plastic clips for PCI cards won't work with my two-slot video card, but I prefer using screws anyway

Other Thoughts: Check out the CK-1026-10 model for inside photos. They're exactly identical to this model.

I tried out an 80mm fan on the side, in both intake and outtake configurations, but it didn't help my already low temperatures (35° CPU, 30° System), so I went back to just using the ventilation tube. Oh well, all that did was add more noise anyway.

This is apprarently a value-brand offshoot of a certain company with "Tt" in their logo. Just check out the side panels -- they match other higher priced models from that company.

If you want a decent, tough case with plenty of ventilation and space to work -- without all the glitzy windows and lights or other garbage -- this is a solid buy.

My Specs:
AMD Sempron 64 3400+
Abit NV8
1 GB Corsair XMS PC3200 DDR400 RAM
Creative Audigy 2 ZS
WD 60 GB ATA-100 Hard Drive
Rosewill RV500S-2 500W PSU

4 out of 5 eggsA good case with a few shortcomings.

Pros: It's roomy, it was easy to install everything into. Unlike my last case it's got enough room that it doesn't need to have all the drive cages, etc... swing out, which is nice (the more I see of various HP cases, the more I want to stab their designers... and no, I didn't voluntarily use that case, so keep your smartalecky comments to yourself).

Cons: The tool-free system for securing the PCI cards was awful... they had enough room to jiggle around in their sockets a bit, which just bothered me. Fortunately it's easy to remove (just 3 screws), but it still sucks that one of the cases key features falls short.

Other Thoughts: Didn't notice the "razor sharp edges" inside the case that a few other reviewers have mentioned. Maybe they modified the case design since?

4 out of 5 eggsAppears to be a good chassis

Pros: Tool-less! Even the PCI slots are ! (I have never had one like this before) Has spots for two 120mm fans. From the other reviews the fan that comes with the case is a little weak, so I am replacing it as well as buying anoter one for the font. I havn't put anything in it yet so I can't really say how good it is.(waiting for other parts) Love the adjustible side air-vent. Seems to be sturdy. Front ports. looks good. Straight in loading of HDs, right in front of 120mm fan. =)

Cons: CD-"flap" looks like it might get in the way of the close button for the CD tray, but no biggie. I have no idea what the yellow and black wire w/ push button is for on the back (maybe re-set?) Holes for PSU are off and I am going to drill new ones. (could be the PSU I bought). Front "grill" seems like its not designed for high air flow for the front fan. I plan on making some modifications.

Other Thoughts: Seems like a good case. This is for my first build ever. I think that I am going to mount another fan (80mm?) on the side of the case where there are holes (under the CPU vent) to get airflow directly on the PCI cards. In all I guess you get a good amount of stuff for your $$$. Look on the manufactures site for more Pics!!!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: This case is good looking, and provides great air flow around the parts that get hot. This case is fairly large in my opinion. I build computers for people every once in a while, and I've dealt with some pretty small cases before.
Although the description doesn't mention it, it DOES support AMD processors and mother boards!!

Cons: I had to make some custom 120mm fan ports on the side and on the top to accomodate the extra heat my system generates. The inside edges aren't rolled under like some cases are, so its razor sharp. Other than that, this case is perfect for what I need.

Other Thoughts: I am an oldschool computer gamer (played DOOM everyday on my laptop) and I don't really appreciate these cases with the shiny lights and plexiglass doors. I think that if you have a beastly system, then people will be impressed with the INSIDE, not the outside.

My system:
AMD Athlon64 3700+
ASUS A8N SLI Premium
2x XFX GeForce 7800GT
Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS
4gb G.SKill system mem.
WD Raptor 10k 74gb
WD Caviar SE 7.2k 250gb
Ultra X-2 Connect 550w (not carried by Newegg, had to buy at t i g e r d i r e c t)

5 out of 5 eggs5 star case

Pros: Screwless. 120mm fan option in front. 120mm in back.Easy to install. The 120mm grill is nice and big for good airflow.

Cons: The CD/DVD cover tray lip thing a bit akward. With the way it flips out, you can't get to the open buttom once the tray is open. In order to close the tray, you either have to push the tray with hand or flip the lip down futher and go bettween the crack to get to the button. A bit annoying but you get use to it.

Other Thoughts: I preffer closing my DVD tray with the open/close button but I still give this case 5 star because of the price. It's hard to find a case like this for this price and a very strong case.

5 out of 5 eggsgood Case

Pros: The two 120mm fan gets good air circulation in this case. The Front 120mm is place right in front on the Hard Drives. It leaves enough room to mont a 35X120mm fan if you need more air. Constuction is also solid.

Cons: The Front 120mm is not included. The fan that comes with the case blows very little air. Case has sharp edges. Just be carefull.

Other Thoughts: I love this case. It's solid and runs great with Thermaltake Thunderblade 120mm fans.
