This review is from: HEC 6BRBBB Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: - No brand names to cover up
- Easy installation - no screws!
- Awesome front panel
- Top-front holds game pad perfectly
- Plenty of room for expansion
- Compact and boring... perfect for custom jobs!
Cons: - Tight squeeze between HDD cables and case
- Had a little trouble getting the front plate off
- Side needs unscrewed to open
- Metal a bit on the thin side
Other Thoughts: Too maximize airflow, I suggest a modular power supply, SATA instead of IDE and a small video card. I will probably reuse the case from machine to machine. I prefer this case over my old full tower since cables are always too short.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CHENMING 901AD-BLACK-0 Black 1.0mm SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Spacious, 2 removable HDD slots, screw pins to fit mostly any motherboard, easy to open, power supply & external drives seperate from HDDs and motherboard. Place for 3 80mm fans and one 92mm fan. Plenty of PCI openings. Cute little legs to keep from tipping. Top is flat - perfect for later installation of water coolers.
Cons: You have to remove the front cover to add front external drives. Door falls off but is easy to put back on. comes with tons of screws. Power button outside of locked door (just tell the OS to ignore the power button). Slightly heavier than I hoped. Metal panel between top and bottom means wires need to stretch further.
Other Thoughts: I was a little confused how to put in the external front drives. I am a little new at this size case, however. I was glad there were no LEDs and no front USB, etc. ports. This is a little better suited for a server, but it makes an awesome ATX case as well. Psst . . . a great deal of over-priced cases just add on to this one. Get this one if you want to fully customize and avoid annoying LEDs.READ FULL REVIEW
