if they make the hard white top vented all the way across that would be better for 2 fans on the top

No complaints here 7/25/2020 10:36:46 AM

Pros: Great look and great build quality. Decent air flow.

Cons: Can't put 3 140mm fans on the front. And I wish there was a mounting spot for a bottom fan.

Overall Review: I'm coming to this case from a.... well it was a cheap but it works type of case. I'm very impressed with the build quality of this case. There are no sharp edges and the noise baffling seems to make a difference. Unlike what another review said there are removable dust filters on sides and bottom of the front panel. Although I am thinking of removing them to increase airflow. Had I known before that there was a high airflow version of this case I probably would have gone with that one but I'm happy with this one for now.

Perfect 7/7/2020 10:42:20 AM

Pros: This case is not only great to look at but the noise levels are deathly quiet and it's a breeze to build in and the cable management is stellar.

Overall Review: bequiet has spoiled me. It'll be hard for other case manufacturers to pull me away from bequiet at this point. I wish I could post an image of my build.

Extremely quiet 7/4/2020 8:16:06 PM

Pros: -Sound dampening
-Spacious
-Includes velcrow strips for cable management and also came with zipties

Cons: -Choked-off front end
-Top optional filter is not extremely useful in keeping temps low

Overall Review: Building in this thing was a dream. It has more than enough space for an ATX board and a fairly lengthy GPU. It comes with the said optional filter, has a psu shroud that is also ventilated, and plenty of removable components if you feel you need more space. And, it's probably the quietest case I've ever built in. be quiet! kept true to their namesake with this one. Literally, the loudest component in my system is the hard drive, even with a non-pure wings fan thrown into it. Speaking of, the included fans are of high quality, and do an adequate enough job of keeping my Ryzen 3100 system cool. I do recommend buying an extra fan to mount, however; as the front of the case simply doesn't receive enough airflow.

Best case I've ever built in - and cheap! 7/3/2020 10:46:22 PM

Pros: Inexpensive, spacious, cable management

Overall Review: I absolutely love having room for 140mm fans! The case has plenty of airflow, and I love that they include both a mesh top and solid (with vents) top. There's no rubber grobbets, but there are plenty of routing holes and some built-in velcro ties.

Any time that part of the case felt obstructive during assembly it was easily removable with a thumbscrew.

I was surprised by how quiet this case was. I wasn't expecting magic, but it does legitimately insulate high pitch noise extremely well.

Overall, this case is cheaper than most of the competition and is better in my mind.

Quiet Black Box 6/28/2020 7:37:50 PM

Pros: Lots of options for 2.5 inch drives and a removable dual bay 3.5 inch drive caddy is nice too.
Has a lot of cable management tie downs in the back of the case
Removable dust filter across the entire bottom of the case
Can hold up to five 140 mm fans, 2 of which are included

Case is very quiet during operation thanks to sound dampening on both side panels and the front panel.
Even has the option to have a mesh or silent top cover, depending on if you want performance or silence.

Cons: The entire cable cutout to the right of the motherboard is way smaller than it should be as thicker cables like the 24 pin ATX power cable don’t comfortably fit unless you have individual sleeved cables which most won’t. Also if you have a right angle connector on the side of your motherboard such as the USB 3.0 header, it is very difficult to get it plugged in. You have to remove the cable cut out cover (Thankfully it can be removed) plug in the cable and then carefully force the cable cut out cover back on.

Overall Review: Overall this was a very easy case to build in and has a lot of good features and it looks great. The only real complaint is the cable cutout but thankfully if there isn’t enough room it can just be removed completely. This is the best low cost feature rich non-tempered glass side panel case I could find which is surprisingly hard to do nowadays.

Cant beat the quality at this price 6/22/2020 10:51:52 AM

Pros: Lots of ways to configure case from Big air coolers to liquid cooling radiators. This case can fit it all. Case design is fantastic, I recommend to anyone on liquid cooling and also recommend to anyone running a 65w chip or less on air. Airflow is good at this power level though any chip higher than 65W TDP should look at the 500DX if cooling on air.

Cons: Front face needs a bit more airflow

Overall Review: 100% reccomendation
High quality
Low Price

I bought a second one 6/6/2020 5:34:18 PM

Pros: Thoughtful layout. I’ve never been impressed with a computer case before but this was my first time. I bought another. High quality materials, incredible placement for hiding hard disks and PSU out of sight behind a shroud, great access to components from all angles, great cooling with default fans.

Cons: None

Overall Review: 10/10
