Pros: Good, No Frills case. Very quiet, and easy install. No problems (though other reviews stated there were) with the drive bays or sharp edges, and there was plenty of room to build. For the price, excellent purchase.
Cons: For the front fan, the power plug had to be stretched to the motherboard for a Mini-ATX board.
Overall Review: This was my first build and I was amazed at how easy it really was. No problems, minor delays and from case prep to OS install in 3.5 hours.
Pros: I am not a techie by any stretch, but I found this install very easy. This was my first build and I went from case prep to OS install in about 3 1/2 hours.
Cons: The only problem I had was during install, the Mobo recognized my hard drive (Seagate 640 Gb, SATA 3.0 Gb/s), but after adjusting a few of the BIOS, it no longer was there. This may have been my own doing, but I don't believe so. I had to first return to default settings then optimize the default settings before it would recognize the hard drive again.
Overall Review: My build:
Cooler Master Sileo 500 case, OCZ 700W PSU, Gigabyte LGA 775 Intel Mobo, Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz, XP Professional 64bit
