COUGAR MX200 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Standard ATX PS2
Pros: This case looks nice and the fans are next to silent. After installing much of the parts we got to the GPU and the back of the GTX 960 is just slightly touching the rack for the HD's. All I did was bend it slightly and it was able to fit without touching.
Cons: Cons... The only real problem we ran into was the fact that the GTX 960 was hitting the HD mounting brackets. Slight bending of the metal solved that problem, With the size of GPU's going up constantly I would be mindful of buying this case if you do not wish to mod it slightly or use a smaller GPU. Also our extremely large CPU fan almost does not fit its right at the edge of the side cover.
Overall Review: I would recommend this product for builds that are not too overboard on the CPU fan size or the GPU size, you can fit the bigger ones just have to be creative. Whad you expect for 30$

Pros: This thing is a BEAST. It's quiet and does its job well.
Cons: ITS HUGE, the copper tips on the top touch the side of my case, I had to bend it out a bit and it fits fine now.
Overall Review: I would recommend this for sure it keeps things quiet and keeps them cool.
