Pros: Versatility. Configurability. Suitability. Quality. All those buzz words that can truthfully be hyped when a case is Just!That!Good!
Cons: The ONLY con - and this is so very personal you should ignore it as a con - is the size was outside my comfort zone. See? - You really should ignore this con.
Other Thoughts: Let's get this out of the way. I ...sent the case back. Yeah. I did. It was really just too big for me.
(I'd barely gotten over the size of the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M, after stepping up from my old Rosewill Challenger "true mid-tower-size" case.) I just couldn't get past the size.
But if YOU are looking for a quality case that is suitable for almost any custom-build purpose, and at a great price (when I ordered, the after-MIR cost was only $60), and is great quality, and with no configuration downsides ...this is the real deal.
Big? - Oh yeah (unless you're a full-tower guy: this is like a smaller full tower, and you will finally be able to fit your build under your desk lol).
But ...almost perfect.
I can't imagine it wouldn't BE perfect for most builds ...especially if you're liquid cooler oriented.
And you'd rather not fill up your internal space with tons o' 3½ inch HDDs (after all: you're booting to a 2½ 1TB SSD - you know those are now in the low-$200 range, right? - there's your single 4-6TB 3½ HDD for stuff you want speedy access to on the internal bus, and you have a 16TB NAS to store all that old junk that you just don't have the time to sort through after 20 years of collecting digital what-nots you hoarder you).
(If you just can't finally retire your assorted old 3½ HDDs AND you can live with only top and rear liquid cooling AND you prefer big ol' quiet 200mm fans in the front anyways ...well, this is still the case for you.)
Do yourself a favor.
Go check out all the Youtube videos of this case, and read the HW enthusiast site reviews.
This really is an awesome case.
The doors really do weigh 5+ pounds each (re: *very* insulated).
You can configure it 8 ways from whatever.
It looks good.
It makes a liquid cooling build a no-brainer, and cable management a breeze; there's scads of room. The quality is forthright and apparent. Even with three liquid coolers (front, top, and back ...and what would you use *three* for anyways???), you could still have three 3½ and a couple or more 2½ drives in the alternate, behind-the-mainboard, positions this case offers.
Omigawd ...I've almost talked myself back into this case.
What was I thinking?
ME1: No. Calm down ...you *know* it was too big for what you wanted it for.
ME2: So what? Aren't you reading your own review? And this case is perfect for future-proofing AND YOU SENT IT BACK. You fool.
Seriously. It's a 5 star case. If you can live with the size (ME2: shuddup about the size already, it wasn't *that* much bigger then the Enthoo Pro M), you aren't going to find anything better or quieter at the $60-70 on sale price.
It's pretty easy to highly recommend this one.
It's a truly nice enthusiast oriented case.
Pros: The Newegg return process is perfect.
Cons: 75% failure rate. Seventy. Five. Percent. Three out of four were marginal DIMMs.
Other Thoughts: I purchased two packs (32GB). So four sticks in two pairs (for a new dual channel ).
Out of the box, only one DIMM posted without issue all the way through the OS install. One.
By futzing with voltage and timing settings, I was finally able to get all three remaining to post singly to the UEFI screens. But only two of those kind of worked through an OS install ...and only one of those two would pair with the good one (for 16GB).
Lest you think it was me or some incompatibility with the component mix, I ordered two pair of G.SKILL (Ares series, same PC3 1280, 9-9-9-24 timing) from Newegg ...that was after futzing with the Mushkins for over 5 days (trying every trick I knew) ...and the G.SKILLs haven't had a single issue (after a week plus of testing, and through a dozen plus OS installs, and 3 days of post-install testing).
Kudos to Newegg for making the return process sterling (I still haven't seen the refund though???).
Followup: Refund was received just after the review. TY Newegg!
This review is from: 10 x Cuttable Black PVC PC Fan Dust Filter Dustproof Case Computer Mesh 140mm
Pros: Everything. Price (you get ten filters) and quality, effectiveness and suitability. What else is there lol?
Cons: Absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: These have to be one of the best - if not THE best - "good deals" you can find anywhere for an unobtrusive, attractive, effective fan filter in the sizes offered (they sell a 120mm and 140mm, which come 10-to-the-package: the discounted price for ordering both sizes can be as low as 60 cents each delivered! for 20 filters total).
Mesh size is *perfect*: non-restrictive, but VERY tiny.
This will stop anything larger than "mote" size particles lol (animal hair and carpet fuzz aren't going to pass through). These were just way, way better than any OEM case filters I've had experience with. (And way better than any foam-based filter you want to compare them too, since you can just wipe off the accumulation ev'ry once in a while.) Just buy 'em. This is a great product, and the price just makes it sweeter.
Case mfr's take note: you need to buy your filters from these guys.
Five stars. Unequivocally recommend. (Yeah, I really truly liked these lol.)
NOTE: I left exactly the same glowing review for the 120mm filters ...just buy 'em.
