5 Eggs For Thrifty Priced Case 11/30/2018 6:01:23 PM

Pros: For a SMALL (and I mean small) ATX mid-tower it isn't to hard to work with. The front cover unsnaps with relative ease & the side covers slide off & on fairly easy and fit well. This is a no frills case with the exception of the 4 USB on the front. I bought this because I had been upgrading from my MSNV-939 with AMD 4000+ single core with 4GB DDR (yes yawn) to an A10 & A88x+Pro. The Mach Speed system really ran stable with Win7 (and previously WinXP64) and I figured I would try to list them on the most well know auction site & sell the parts. After seeing that wasn't going to work I figured I would buy this case and transfer the innards plus give me a chance to part with some older hardware. I transferred everything today and installed Win7 & it'll be on Craigslist before the weekend.

Like I said the case is small for a mid tower and even though my hands are big and used to working in my Thermaltake Chaser MK-I I had little issues putting it all together. I took extra care and routed and zip tied cables to make the best of the 2 used 80mm fans. The system flows decent air and the CPU is staying around 32ºC/89.6ºF with the original stock cooler.

The supplied cables are long enough to route neatly when care is taken.

The case is light and when fully assembled (mobo, CPU, 2 3.5" hard drives & 1 optical drive is easily carried about. Can't be said for the Chaser MK-I or the original Ultra eTorque case I saved for a future project.

Again, the air flow is decent considering I am using 2 80mm fans that move an advertised 32+CFM. If you throw your parts together it will impede airflow.

That is pretty much it for the PROS

Cons: Well, if you are expecting a really sweet case and you are looking at this one it won't compare. It's not a bad case if you are looking to re-case an old system or revamp an old Win9x machine. The metal is thin and if you are rough with it expect dents, dings etc. The case when torn down is quite flexible and when installing drives and tightening them down they become part of the spine for this box.

It's not very wide so you wouldn't get carried away with a large CPU cooler. Also, the motherboard tray doesn't have access to the back of the mobo with the cooling heatsink plate is. This was a very close fit for the aged 939 board. I wouldn't fill it with a lot of drives because then it'll have little to no airflow with the 80-90mm fans.

It's not overly loud but it isn't quiet.

This is a basic case.

Overall Review: I gave it 5 eggs because it is what it is. It didn't boast anything spectacular and therefore it met my needs. I have $38 invested in this case and an open box economy PSU. Everything else I installed, mobo, AMD 4000+ CPU, 2 Seagate 80GB IDE drives, DVD-RW Light Scribe IDE, 1 flat IDE cable and one round dual drive cable, 2 case quad-color LED case fans & a few adapters were all previously used. Those drives are pushing 10 years old. Gotta love Seagate. If I get $100 I'll be happy and some old hardware is down the road.

sub par construction 5/24/2016 9:25:32 PM

Pros: I liked the price i got it for like $30 i think

Cons: Case is poor quality construction the housing for the power supply unit is not secure so when the computer is on it tends to sit there and vibrate. Due to this Vibration the side panel does not sit properly i fixed it for a time with duct tape but to no lasting effect. To be 100% honest because of this case my computer sounds like a dying refrigerator. I know its not available anymore and is out of stock on newegg but for your sanity don't get this simply because its cheap.

What the hell do you want for 22 bucks?! 11/2/2015 8:30:19 AM

Pros: Its 22$! It's a case! It fits at lest 4 3.5" HDDs + 2x5.25" bays! It fits microATX!

Cons: It's flimsy as all hell, required a fair bit of bending to fit the power supply, and generally feels exactly as you'd expect the cheapest case you can buy to feel like.

It does the job and looks good 9/19/2015 7:50:55 AM

Pros: I'd had an old Asus P5Q Pro Turbo ATX motherboard in a back closet gathering dust along with pretty much everything I'd need to put together a very nice desktop computer that I wanted to give to a needy local charitable organization. All I really required was a case. So I searched Newegg, found this one, and decided that for the price I could ignore the warnings in the reviews and give it a try. I'm so glad I went with my instincts. This case is perfect for my needs, my ATX MBO fits nicely, there's room for everything I wanted to give away, the front panel connectors and lights were all there and they work as they should (USB-2 ports only). Maybe not a great case, but a perfectly fine one. It even looks good!

Cons: Yes, part of my MBO floats in mid air. So what? Do you plan to rest your coffee cup on it? You can't put fingers under it to brace when you're plugging in a component? Your OCD kicks in when you see a screw hole without a screw? The packaging contains plenty of offset screws for MBO support -- six of them. That's plenty, for my MBO anyway.

Overall Review: In placing my order I discovered there's a Newegg warehouse in my city. Talk about convenience! I placed my order and within an hour I received a phone call telling me I could pick up my case right away. Thanks, Newegg!

Better than a pizza box 9/9/2015 5:27:15 PM

Pros: Has held up for over two years. Everything still works. Even has room for two side mounted 120mm case fans.

Cons: USB front panel is upside down. Not like you can plug in a USB the first time anyway, champ. I could probably fix it if I wanted to, but it works either way, even after two years of use.

Overall Review: You came here because it is a full sized box for your parts that is super cheap. Sure it may seem a little flimsy, but what do you expect? If you want rolled edges and fancy design, cough up a little more money. If you want to avoid using a pizza or cereal box and want something a little more stylish than that old Dell box you have lying around, then this one works.

Look at the little bag of parts! 5/22/2015 10:06:10 AM

Pros: Holds parts together
Actually does Fit ATX boards!! (see Other Thoughts)

Cons: thin metal

Overall Review: OK so yes, the mobo tray is too skinny to completely support a full ATX board with mounted standoffs.

If you look in that little bag of parts that comes with every case, and that every one ignores, you will see 3 thick barreled plastic standoffs which are taller than the rest. Pop these into the outer edge holes on your full ATX board, and they support the board just like a full sized mobo tray would do. No bending, no flexing boards. (other than the flexing that will happen with this thin metal anyway)
