XION Gaming Series XON-980-BK Black with RED LED Light Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks nice. Nice features on paper.

Cons: Doesn't fit my water cooling well, I have an H105, and the screws don't fit well, and they didn't include any alternate screws.

Fan controller caused lots of stability issues until I removed it.

On more than one occasion, plugging something into the front USB ports has prompted my motherboard to reset, or everything to freeze.

Having lots of stability issues, someone else said they had grounding issues, and quite frankly, I'm inclined to believe them. When I have the money, I'm getting a new case.

Maybe it's the motherboard, but I have a feeling it's the case.

Rebate was never acknowledged or paid, and I won't be able to return the case because the UPC was cut out for the rebate I never got.

Don't bother. They won't pay your rebate, and the nice features of the case aren't worth mentioning because half the time, they don't work. Very disappointing, I had high expectations for the case.

Other Thoughts: Going back to Antec, NZXT, CoolerMaster, with my next case. This was a disappointment. I might be moving next month, and I'm afraid to pack this case, I'm afraid my radiator will come loose and smash stuff up.

4 out of 5 eggs Nice case, with minor-ish problems. 12/02/2014

This review is from: XION Gaming Series XON-980-BK Black with RED LED Light Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks good, very roomy, lots of nice features, USB 3.0 ports, includes fairly quiet fans.

Cons: 1. Power/Reset buttons are way too easy to push, and I can't count how many times I bumped into them and reset/shut down on accident before I moved my PC off to the side.

2. Fan controller is a piece of junk. I knew going in that it didn't support variable power for the fans, it's just a toggle, but, what I didn't expect is that having it plugged in would crash my computer at random intervals. First day or so after assembling it, my computer would randomly freeze, BSOD, or just reset for no reason, under load or not. More often it was idling, only happened under load once.

I tear my hear out trying to figure out why, some guy online says his case's integrated fan controller was causing problems, so, sure, why not, I'll indulge him. Yep, that was it. 4 days stable with the fan controller unplugged, plugged it back in, all hell broke loose again. Not a huge deal, just irritating. If the feature is going to be that broken, just don't include it at all. Overall, I'm fairly happy with the case, aside from the aforementioned. Just don't plan on using the fan controller and you'll be golden.

Pros: I originally got one of these from my job, and it was such a boon, that I bought one for myself! It includes a nice little carrying bag, two micro-usb cables, and it lasts an absurdly long time. It charges my Droid 4 3-5 times on a single charge, and comes in handy for me, as I spend a lot of time at client sites, or in airports, etc. I would highly recommend getting one of these little guys, it's been extremely helpful for me, and saved my *** on multiple occasions.

Cons: Not many, the cables jut out a bit, make it a bit unwieldy to put in your pocket if you're charging something, but I prefer to just leave the pack in my backpack and use a long usb cable instead. Not a fan of glossy stuff.
