Most Favorable Review

First new case in 10 years

be quiet! Pure Base 500DX White, ATX Computer Case, ARGB, Mid Tower, Tempered Glass Window

Pros: Smaller form factor, not much wasted space. The RGB lighting is fantastic. Bright enough inside but not overwhelming. Temps with 360mm AIO in push/pull up front, one 140mm up top and in back for exhaust are excellent compared to old cases I've used with similar setup.

Cons: I found the SSD holder/cable bar to be a bit clunky. Not a whole lot of room at the top for cable routing, enough but a few more mm for the CPU connector would be nice. Lost HDD compatibility with 360mm AIO in push pull.

Overall Review: I would certainly build in again. The look and cooling options are outstanding. Glad pulled the trigger and upgraded.

Flimsy Much?

NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series CS-NT-BETA-EVO Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Easy Installation Many Fan Options Cable Management

Cons: Flimsy

Overall Review: Going in I wasn't expected to be blown away, but other reviews are misleading. For a budget case I suppose it is OK, but as others have said for a few $$ more you can get much more! When installing fans had to brace back of case or else it just bowed when applying a little pressure on it. Same goes for the top fan I installed. Compared to the Storm Scout I just did I build in, I will never cheat for $15 on a case again. Only positive I can say is cable management, I ran into no problems at all in that department. I've used 4 different cases for each build I've done, and routing cables in this case was as easy if not the best of the 4. As far as the tool less design is concerned, I didn't even bother with the optical drive, just used screws. the hard drive rails seem to work OK though.
