Pros: Has everything I needed in a new MB
Supports both USB 3 and 2 on the MB as well as multiple connections in the back plate.
Low price, under a $100US.
Cons: CPU fan connector only supports a four wire fan. My water cooler only has a three wire fan.
Other Thoughts: This MB only has 1 PCI-Express x16 slot but I do not intend to have SLI for this system so I knew that when I spec'ed it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Power supply at the bottom.
USB 3.0 and 2 connecters on the front.
A lot of room for large video cards and whatever else you want to put in it.
Lots of fan and water cooling options supported.
Cons: I would have liked to have had a few more exit holes in the MB mounting plate so I could have routed my power cables differently. Hard to explain but there are no exit holes in the plate. Many cases have two or three cable exit holes so you can pull cables from the back in the middle and top of the case.
Needed a couple more plastic HD mounting hardware It supports 4 HD's but only received two plastic locks. I just used some spare screws so it wasn't any real issue.
I have to open the case to remove and clean the filters.
Other Thoughts: I got this case on sale for less than $40 US. I wasn't expecting much and even planned on throwing it away if I had trouble with it. What a surprise I had when I started working with it. Very nice and easy to install my components.
I installed a water cooler for my CPU. It has two fans pulling cool outside air through the radiator. I had two different options so the case supported the feature well. It took me longer to decide which place to mount the radiator and which way the air should go than it did to do the actual mounting.
