Cons: Second unit, in the raven rvz01 case I have to keep opening the case, wiggling the power connectors, turning the pc on, seeing if there is video output from the system and if not, repeat the process 10+ times till the psu wants to work. Its been with several video cards and motherboards so I know its a psu issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Vampire ATX-001WBTi Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is rather large and fits most motherboard types needed. There are no worries about cable management or components not being able to fit in this case. Plenty of fan mounts, allowing not only for a cool system but also a quiet one, even has one on the bottom. Dust covers almost everywhere, hot swap bay on the top. Plenty of drive bays. And the best part is that the top and side panels all have thumb screws!
Cons: There are many that I have found. The molex connectors are a pain, very loose and I am not surprised when I find out ive spent five minutes to connect one. The front fan is a bit loud and is blue, so be sure to color code your components to match this case. The rear 140mm is the loudest fan ive ever had, I remounted it on the bottom and kept it at the lowest rpm I could and was a little annoying still and I ended up replacing it. The hard drive cage is non modular in any spot, even though there is a 200mm fan at the front i'd still like to mount a pump and reservoir without having to sacrifice my bottom fan mount. The side panel has 2x120mm mounts and the holes are square and you will grind into them or crack them, the plastic is smoked so adding led strips is a must to show off, and there are no filters for the side. This is a big con for me because I hate dust. I did buy filters but I couldn't use one due to having a 120mm rad in the rear, I couldn't get the side panel on. The top of the case has a nice filter but YOU DO NEED STATIC PRESSURE FANS otherwise mounting fans on the top is useless, I haven't gotten air to move through all 3 layers of mesh with airflow fans. There are no ssd mounts behind the right side panel unfortunately, and the cutouts for cable management have cheap grommets that will lose pieces and fall out, superglue fixes the falling out part.
Other Thoughts: this case is not for someone who wants to liquid cool their system, is hard to make a quiet and cool system, and isn't dust resistant. But for the average or even a little more of an enthusiast...this case is amazingREAD FULL REVIEW
