APEX ATX Mid-Tower Case
Pros: The case has a medium size. It's manageable being carried to LAN parties, though takes up a fair amount of clearance. The case has 3 80mm fan slots; one comes with the case, the 80mm rear exhaust fan. Two fans will fit in the two intake slots on the front bottom of the case, the air comes from the bottom of the case. The heat duct fan is not 80mm, it's possibly a 70mm or lower. The case is spacious enough for comfort and healthy circulation. The heat duct is sufficiently aligned to the CPU processor which perfectly aligns to the rear exhaust (ASRock CrossFire motherboard.) The case is stylish with a black frame and bezel, along with a dim blue LED line in the front which I use for the HDD LED. The two lights on the bottom are power LEDs. The door has lasted for more than 4 months from average usage. The construction is of high quality, and the toolless design is painless; though not technically toolless, it's convenient. The HDD tray on the bottom is good to cool the HDDs.
Cons: The HDD tray will decrease the front intake's ability to circulate cool air throughout the rest of the case.
Overall Review: The product is inexpensive and well worth the $50.
