Pros: Keeps everything nice and cool, excellent cable management system, sturdy and rugged construction and finish can take a beating, plenty of room to grow, top-mounted front panel I/O great to keep things within reach if you keep your case on or near the floor; also great if you have kids and keep your case up high, as they cannot reach the power/reset buttons, etc.
Cons: Open air design = tons of airflow = more dust/debris can get into chassis = not very quiet. This isn't really a problem for most gamers, as they will typically use a headset while playing. I wouldn't recommend this for any noise sensitive environment like a recording studio. Front I/O panel cheaply made - headphone/mic jack PCB fell apart after the first week. No problem for me, as I can just replace the jacks and hand-wire them, but users without wiring/soldering knowledge may have issues with this (wasn't worth the cost to RMA). Empty bay covers on front panel are a bit touchy - will sometimes 'cave in' if you push on them and you have to take off the front panel to put them back in place. The 'tool-free' mounting system is a joke. Remove these plastic doorstops immediately and use screws like a real man (or woman).
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am pretty happy about this case. It's not flashy or gimmicky, but it does the job and does it pretty well for this price range. Would definitely recommend this case to anyone building a budget-friendly rig.READ FULL REVIEW
