Bad spot for Drives 7/2/2020 8:44:31 AM

Pros: Small and size able for the Motherboard

Cons: Horrible for drive cabling. It only fits two drives and the cables get bent due to lack of space.

Overall Review: I would rather have looked for something else.

Worse airflow 11/28/2019 9:53:17 PM

Pros: Attractive case with customizeable trim

Cons: The airflow of this case is atrocious. So bad cooler master redesigned it with side vents. This case airflow was so poor that even with 4 case fans would still run hot. Taking off the front panel would drop temperatures by 15+ cel

Overall Review: Do not buy this case unless you only want a nice looking office build with a ryzen 3 2200g or some other low power build.

Power button deffective. 11/20/2019 8:24:23 PM

Pros: The system does have a sleek design and a spacious design

Cons: The power button cannot turn on the computer. I had build the entire PC only to realize that the power button won't turn on.

Overall Review: I would hate to be offered a replacement as it took several Hours to build. Perhaps an alternative power module?

Okay PC Case 9/23/2019 10:25:29 AM

Pros: - It is a nice looking case with room for plenty of cooling fans.
- All parts fit with plenty of room to spare and cable management was easy with more than enough room.

Cons: - Air flow is considerably restrictive.
- Even though you can fit quite a few fans, your going to need them to get whatever air in and out of this case.
- Cost, this case is priced decently however all the money you will most likely spend on additional fans will drive up the price of this case considerably.
- Had to enlarge a few holes with a drill so I could install three 120mm fans in the front. I've never had to do that with a case before.
- Sheet metal is thin but with everything assembled it is sturdy enough.

Overall Review: This is a average case at best. The air flow is restricted but you can use higher tdp parts as long as you do not overclock them. If possible, I would recommend undervolting your CPU and GPU. Depending on your processor, you can leave turbo boost on. I bought this case for my girlfriend because she cared about form over function. She is very happy with this case and being able to see through the front and side of it.

Good 8/4/2019 12:35:59 PM

Pros: Great price and well built.

Cons: Not enough air flow for the new ryzen. I had to cut a hole out of the front when I added three 120mm fans. I also had to ditch the included fan with higher rpm for exhaust.

Overall Review: Would have been nice to have an exhaust on the top.

Horrible Air flow 7/3/2019 6:28:23 AM

Pros: Simple case

Cons: Horrible air flow. The front has little to no fan intake. This should be called the Hotbox 5.
