Excellent mid tower case!

Pros: All around a good case for initial setup. Plenty of room for most GPUs and a 120mm cpu radiator.

Cons: No support for a 240mm radiator without altering the case. Not really a con because I bought this case a few years back not thinking about upgrading to a bigger radiator.

Okay for the price

Pros: I have had this case for little over a year now and it still works fine
+looks good
+good airflow

Cons: -Dust filter were difficult to clean
- No room for cable management. I tried my best getting the cables cleaned up to find that there was no room for them in the back panel.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this case, as their are cases for the same price or a little more that have much better features.

Nice looking

Pros: -Blue LEDs
-Transparent case that shows the $$$ graphic card
-Many slots for serveral HDD / SSD
-Cheap

Cons: -Weak metal plates on the back and the front of the case which are hard to detatch without bending them
-With a huge graphic as mine (which is almost 13 inch wide, it's hard to connect my SDD, my 2 HDD and my CD/DVD burner
-Empty wide holes at the back of the case made by removing some metal plates (I adjusted my CG a couple of times) aren't nice looking, but hey, it's not that bad
-The dust plate is weakly attached, so avoid breaking it

Other Thoughts: Since my power supply fan died, I can feel the heat through the case. It's not critical, but it surprised me at first.

Nice Outside Meh inside

Pros: - solid frame construction (side panels feel they would bend easily if I had some kind of an accident)
- objectively visually appealing
- low price for high tier manufacturer
- lots of mounting locations for fans
- dust filters for most fan locations

Cons: - only comes with one fan (120mm front w/ blue light)
- limited space behind motherboard tray
- no USB 3.0 ports
- despite having 7 HDD/SSD bays there are only 3 sets of mounting clips

Other Thoughts: [DISCLAIMER: I am inexperienced with custom build PCs and not formally educated however I am not without a working brain and know how to use it and Google effectively.] I am satisfied with this purchase and feel the product was worth the cost. I moved my build to this case from a Micro-ATX and I really appreciated the extra space. Most of the things I do not like about this case is information I could have/should have been aware of because the specs are clear. The problems were that the case only has 1 fan, I could not properly mount my 2.5" SSD and there are no USB3.0 ports on the front. I did still list the fan and USB points under cons because they are but my frustration at the time does not effect my score of the case overall. If you are considering purchasing this case you should put more fans in if only a small exhaust on the top or back. I had spares to install but if you have to buy fans I would count that towards the cost when comparing to other potential purchases. The construction of the case felt sturdy. It is not very heavy while at the same time doesn't feel fragile. Once I started building in it I found that the side panels a little flimsy. They bend easily and could likely get dented, bent or broken if you are careless. The full metal side that goes behind the motherboard tray has some bow to it now from the wire bulge I made in my best attempt at cable management. I also was concerned with removing the cut outs for expansion slots that I was going to damage the I/O shield.

All in all I really like this case. What I want is just simply a box to put my computer in that is inexpensive, good quality and looks "cool" without being over the top. This will be my case for a long time to come.

alright

Pros: side window was nice and it worked.

Cons: Honestly, I think new egg should change the description for this case. Any amount of wire management within the case is almost next to impossible.

The way the PSU is put in it covers the only hole which would be where you run the wires through, another problem with that hole, is the fact that it is to small. If you have a PSU with braided cables or something a little bigger forget about trying to get them through that hole.

If you're running a micro atx board, you will have enough space and not be cramped, if you're running a full size and a full size GPU you're out of luck.

TOOL-FREE MECHANICAL DESIGN ??? False. Holes do not match up. Tried 2 separate chassis'. Neither worked.

Pros: Nice looking case. Plenty of room. Lots of options for ventilation and cooling.

Cons: I purchased two different types of conversion brackets to accept a 2.5" SSD. Neither one worked. The holes do not match up.
(1) ORICO 3.5'' to 2.5'' SSD/HDD Aluminum Mounting kit Bracket Converter Adapter(3.5 to 1x2.5) Black. This one was extremely tight fit. Quick install (no hassle ?) - NOT !
(2) SABRENT 2.5 to 3.5 Inches Internal Hard Disk Drive Mounting Kit (BK-HDDH). Chassis fits just fine in case. Holes do not match up.
Both products were purchased from another supplier. Both were returned for credit. No suggestions given on what will work. I just want the hole to match up. One simple request.
