Great and bigger than expected 5/21/2008 11:26:17 AM

Pros: This case is really big! I wasn't expecting such a large case but I love it! The front door that swings back to expose drive slots from top to bottom. It comes with a 120mm fan and 3 80mm fans. ATX & BTX compatible with a BTX kit for $20. Mostly tooless except for the motherboard and expansion slots. Even the hard-drive has clips to let it slip in and out without tools. Fairly light case and nice black finish.

Cons: I wanted to mount the hard-drive in the front of the case, but I don't like the brackets for mounting a 3.5" drive in a 5.25" bay. It was confusing and wouldn't use the tooless clips. 80mm fans don't have 3-pin connectors for the fan controller.

Overall Review: I didn't have the problem with the side fans hitting the hard-drive because I'm using and IDE hard-drive. But the fan are easily removable and can place them in the back of the case for outgoing air. I ended up using my own 80mm fans with 3-pin connectors so I could power them with the fan controller

Ok. but some problems.. 10/2/2007 12:33:13 AM

Pros: Nice looking in my opinion. Gatewatch built into the front bezel for temp probes and fan control. Changeable to 3 colors. Nice and bright LCD and has not died yet. Movable front fan bracket. Solid sturdy feeling. Top mounted USB, firewire, headphone and mic jacks. 10 5.25 bays. Bottom mounted PSU sucking in cool air. Inverted ATX lets me put the front 120mm directly on the CPU heatsink. Tooless 5.25 work great easy to use. Soft plastic feet. The mesh panel front and side intake cuts down on dust getting into the computer. Will accept larger video cards. Great airflow with the front bezel propped open.

Cons: Lots of sharp edges still. The rear 120mm fan they include is bright and quiet but has no airflow, it was useless. Gatewatch will annoy you without 4 3-pin fans connected to it. Which is not included. (I use Gatewatch to control 2 120mm, and 2 80mm) 3 80mm fans cooling the HD rack are loud together and don't move so much air but not as bad as the 120mm. Rear panel vibrates with high speed 120mms. The motherboard tray is flimsy. PSU cage on the bottom is cramped and scratched my PSU and ripped the void sticker. So Careful and don't force it in. HD rack didn't accept my HD's with the 2 plastic slides. Had to stick them in without the slides. Hard to cable manage with this case, not alot of places to hide them. Front bezel always wants to close and is very stiff feeling from the wires going into it.

Overall Review: Well I gave it a 3 but I am still mixed on even that. Gatewatch is bloated and buggy program. They don't include any 3 pin fans at all but I had some already waiting. Front bezel quiets the computer a great deal, with it open though temps on the CPU drop a good 5 cel and more for other components. The HD rack was bent when I received it so I bent it back. HD rack does not work with the plastic slides so I slide the HD's in reverse without the slides because the other way they hit the side 80mm fans. I used the 2 rubber bands on each to get rid of the HD noise. It's an ok case but for abit more you can get better. Good looking case though IMO still.

Nice looking case, some issues 11/2/2006 10:33:51 AM

Pros: It is a nice looking case, lots of fans, the display on the front is great looking. The opening and cooling being on the opposite side from a normal case is a nice touch.

Cons: Larger then I though, a bit heavier. The gloss black on everything gains dirt rather easily. You can't really put your CD-Rom in the top tray, as their is a shelf that interfears with taking the CD out.

The side fans fit, but I had to clip the extra wires coming from hard drive. There wasn't room otherwise, so the Hard Drive has to be at the end of the power chain.

The worst though, is the 2 wire fans when the heat management system asks for 3. Then it beeps loudly complaining that the fans are not hooked up.

Overall Review: This is not a mobile case, but it will look good setup next to the machine. The LED's are bright and look great, but the lack of a CD with software and an easy way to disable to alarm for the cooling system is rather annoying.

Sleek, sexy, and FRUSTRATING! 6/30/2006 7:22:22 AM

Pros: What I liked about this case was the fact that it came with fans built in (decent ones in my opinion) and screwless mounts for your drives. Also, it opens on the LEFT side...very innovative...and I kind of like it. Very modular design too.

Cons: What really turned me off was a few things. First off, I HATE the upsidedown design which puts the power supply on the floor, sucking up all the dust through its grating. The design also leaves little room for maneuverability between your 5.25" drives and onboard slotted components.
The second are the front controls which aren't on the front...they're on the top...which should have been reserved for airflow. Also, to this day I haven't been able to configure the headphones and microphone on my mobo using the controls provided...probably my fault but negative points for being cryptic with limited documentation.
The third, is that if you were to use the slots specifically designed to hold the hard drives for your system...YOU CAN'T CLOSE THE CASE DOOR?! I really hope I was just doing something wrong here as this made absolutely 0% sense to me and forced me to mount the drives in the 5 1/4 bays with extra mounts :-(

Overall Review: Of course, it's my fault for not adequately researching this case before purchasing, but wow!

Oh, and good luck getting those front bezzel spacers off without prior experience. I'll save you the trouble and tell you that you'll need a flat-head screwdriver to pry the snaps away from the bezel from the inside to pop them out. You CAN NOT just apply force against the mesh scree from the inside to remove them. Work one leg and then the other...it'll come right out.

Pros: Very nice design. Plenty of space to grow and ample room for cooling fans and airflow. Powersupply is located on the bottom so I would suggest buying a supply with the exhaust fan accordingly. LCD is good, not great.

Cons: Heavy! Fans that come with the case (which uses fan speed controller) do NOT have the 3 wire connector for the RPM control. Also you may need extra long power/SATA/IDE cables

Overall Review: All in all, a good case. Sturdy but heavy and bulky. I'd give it a 7.8 out of 10

cAZY SWEET 1/8/2006 7:49:19 PM

Pros: This case offers you everything that you will need. There is plenty of space a built in thermal monitoring system and it just looks wicked

Cons: The 120 mil and 3 80 mil fans that come stock with this case do not work with the built in thermal system.they are a 2 wire when you need a 3 wire set up to control the rpm's also you need to go to a website to get the software for the thermal system but that is no big deal

Overall Review: You should never outgrow this case. with all the options you can do with it there should never be any problems. my first order from newegg and def not my last

Hello Im this guy 11/14/2005 2:55:30 PM

Comments: Hello, its this guy again. Just checked my hardrive and its in the correct way. To solve the hardrive problem I bought a 90 degree SATA cable and 90 degree power cable. Previously I did not know that either of these existed. But if your going to buy this case be sure to buy these things as well. diffenatly the 90 degree SATA cable, the 90 degree power cable you dont really need but its nice to have. Also be sure that the 90 degree SATA cable is angled the correct way because it only goes in the hardrive one way. If your unlucky like me you will buy the wrong one and the cable is going to angle directly down into the steal cage the hardrive sits in instead up and out of the way, so I had to cut a hole in the steal cage. they make SATA cables that are angled on both ends, maybe one is angled up and the other down Im not sure. I bought the SATA that is straight on one end and angled on the other. I upped my rating to 3 stars because this problem can be fixed fairly easily if you buy the right cables. is the only place I found in America to have UV reactive 90 degree SATA cables.

I am still having the problem of the flashing front LCD, I have bought 2 new 120mm 3 pin fans and 3 80mm 3 pin fans. the 80mm fans are RPM adjustable but the 120mm fans are not (I bought them thinking they were adjustable). So the LCD thinks that one of the 4 fans you can hook up is not spinning and is therefore still flashing. If HouseOfBugs knows how to stop the flashing or if your having the same problem please review the case again and tell me---thanks
