NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB 3.0, PWM Fan hub,  Matte BLK / Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great cable management
Built in LED for rear panel and NZXT logo
Covered compartment for PSU
Stays cool and quiet
Built in dust filters
Pre-installed standoffs
Sturdy, very well built.

Cons: No case speaker
Thumb screws require a screw driver due to poor threading
Snap in panels are hard to remove, makes it feel like you're breaking them.

Other Thoughts: The built in PWM fan controller doesn't actually provide any PWM information to the motherboard when plugged in (rpm and so on), but it works well for controlling the 7 fans I have installed.

ATX Motherboard was a close fit, so something like E-ATX would probably not fit.

EVGA GTX 980 classified was also a close fit, so anything longer than that would likely not fit.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-UD5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks nice
Feels sturdy
Good Price
Functions

Cons: XMP Causes BSODs

Setting ram settings manually results in a failure to POST.

Requires a PSU power cycle to get it to start after shutting down

Couldn't install drivers using CD, as the installer appeared to be a broken web page.

APP Center is buggy and terrible to use

Other Thoughts: This is the first time i've purchased a Gigabyte board, I was pushed this way by all of the negative reviews on competing boards.

The PSU Power cycle issue started about a week after having it. The power button on my case would not turn it on, the power button on the board would not turn it on, so I had to cycle the PSU. After doing that, the light on the power button flickered then turned off (Previously, it was always on if the board had power). The power button did function, however, and the system booted.

Cooler Master Elite 311 - Mid Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and Blue Trim
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks good, decent cable management, cheap, perfect size

Cons: Only 1 fan, and the HDD access light doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Overall if you're going to get this case and you plan on gaming, I would recommend getting another fan or two, as this case could use the extra help in cooling the system.
