Pros: +USB 3.0
+Very clean look
Cons: -Fans are kinda loud (wasn't expecting much from a case this cheap)
Overall Review: Honestly, there is nothing more I could have asked for from a case that was as cheap as this one. I have built many gaming PCs for friends from cheap to pretty high end builds, and this case competes with all the other cases I've dealt with. However, it has a pretty small form factor and no ODD slot, but you can figure that out by looking at the product page. If the fans were silent it would be perfect, but then it would be way too cheap imo
Pros: Really nice quality, it's very light but sturdy and durable. All the right cutouts and fan openings are where they should be. Comes with 2 orange fans that looks nice. Side window. All the right hardware. It's just a pleasure to build in case like that and at the end it's like a toy, very nice looking, different from other cases.
Cons: I can't really come with any cons, it's just $35 and I expected less than what i have got.
I do not consider an absence of DVD slot a con, it's in pros for me, I don't need DVD and I don't want case to be that bigger to accommodate for it.
They could make a few more mounting places for 3.5" drives, there is a cage for them but only one removable tray.
BUT!!!! It looks like you can actually install another drive below that removable 3.5" tray. If you will look at that location - there are 4 holes in the bottom of the case. Basically you put your HDD on the bottom of the case there, then put screws from the bottom outside through the case into the hard drive. It's hard to see it from the first look, but it's there, another place to install another drive. This case is like a pandora box, you don't know what else you will find another day :-)
Overall Review: I want to get a purple now for another mATX build. It's just great.
Pros: My daughter likes purple and there are not a whole lot of choices so I got her the bitfenix purple case w/white body. That case was horrible - it was wobbly and would dent if you looked at it funny; I hated that case, it was cursed because the PC would randomly crash/turn off. I had previously bought this DIYPC case in orange and really loved it so I bought the purple one and it has exceeded my expectations (compared to the bitfenix case). This case felt solid, compact and VERY easy to work inside of it. Her PC was equipped with a GTX 980 and there is plenty of space for that in here with good breathing room. It was easy to work inside this case - her PSU is not modular however I was able to cleanly tuck away wires since there is a bulge on the right side of the case panel. Overall my setup looks cleaner than some of my regular ATX cases and I don't have random crashes, not sure if the other case had bad ventilation problems or was shorting something out. I would definitely buy this again and I fully recommend this case if you are looking for a gaming mATX profile, oh and the purple is nice...
Cons: - No DVD drive bay but I knew that going in, nonetheless be aware.
- Case fans a bit loud - would not consider this a silent/quiet PC setup.
Overall Review: This PC's specs:
DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX120MM CPU Heatsink/Cooler

Pros: Bottom mounted PSU
Easy cable management

Fits 2x 2.5" SSDs
Fits 2x 3.5" HDDs
Solid build quality
Under $40 shipped
Top mounted USB/Audio
Cons: Too light to make an effective boat anchor.
Overall Review: This is an absolutely wonderful case for the price point and I have absolutely no regrets.
Pros: For the price, the case looks absolutely great with the two included 120mm fans that light up the case. Also, the case is painted completely black, and has lots of cable management holes to make a build look nice through the window. Dust filters included on the PSU mount so thats great
Cons: Only con that I can think of is the lack of hard drive mounting trays. My unit only came with one tray, while it has room for two. It also has mounting holes for an SSD, but if you are looking to mount to 3.5" hard drives, you may need a another tray.
Overall Review: I would definitely recommend others to buy the case. Great value for money, especially for those just starting out to build. Cable management is easy, and there is lots of room to work with. One note to be careful is to make sure the height of your CPU cooler fits. I had a CM evo 212 and it just fits ;)
Pros: Very nice, we built design case, lightweight and very affordable.
Cons: So far none, if there's any, I would rate this case 4 stars.
Pros: Great price.
Client loves it.
Cons: It's not free.
Overall Review: Great LAN box. Well built and looks great!
System built with the miracle Pentium G3258/Hyper 212 with a tiny ASUS mATX (B85M-G).
Airflow is great, CPU OC'ed to 4.7 & temps maxed @ 63º under load.
My 2nd build with these DIY cases (first was the Black/Orange case).
Pros: I have built three computers using this case. For the money you really can't get a better case. It looks great! I coupled this case with a B350 Mortar in arctic white, with Corsair ram in white, a deepcool 120ex white and an Asus rx480 in white. I wish i had found a decent white PSU, but the look is still really cool!
Cons: People complaining about how cheap it is should look at the price. Sure a $120 case will feel heavier and nicer, but you get what you pay for. There is no reason to say this is a bad case.
Overall Review: If you are trying to build a custom rig that doesn't take up much space and is going to look great get this case. Cable management is good, the look is awesome, it does what it is supposed to without any compromises. I have a corsair carbide in white that doesn't look as cool as this one and it cost 3x more.
