Summary: I bought this unit 6 months ago to build a system for my parents. Its been great and now I'm going to buy another one to build myself a system.
Pros: Nearly silent, Great airflow, everything works (USB ports, lights,etc..). Actually this is the 1st case I've had that every USB media port on it actually work. Others even more expensive ones I always end up with a USB or Firewire or one of the other built-in ports not working. I've been putting ...
Summary: The front fan has another fan backing it up you could take that one out and put a cpu controlled fan witch would only kick on when your cpu needs cooling.
Pros: very quiet, very efficent. with a decent cpu cooling fan it keeps temps in low 30's C that is. good case for the money the bay door is cd drive friendly. built 15 computers for clients using this case. It works and its easy to hook up jpanel Light. all my clients like to have quite computers. thi...
Summary: Added a coolermaster 120mm blue led to the exhaust and does this baby look sharp. Everything running cool as a cucumber, doesn't seem to have any dead spots for airflow.
Pros: Plenty of room in this case, I have long hands and was able to work with relatively little swearing. Tooless system worked fine for HDD. Used screws on ODD because I couldn't figure out the tooless system. Stock fans run super quiet. Door closes securely, and doesn't feel cheap (not super strong ...
Cons: No documentation on the tooless system for us visual learners. Drive bay covers take a significant amount of force to remove.
Summary: Very sturdy and pretty case. The blue case fan in the front is very bright, moves a lot of air. Plenty of room. I put... BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX AMD 64 X2 7750 BE GSKill 4gb 2x2gb 1066mhz WD Caviar Black 640gb 2x Sapphire Radeon 4830 512 CF
Pros: Everything was very easy to install in this case. The mounting brackets for the CD-Roms, and the Hard Drives are very easy to mount and dismount. Plenty of room for many hard drives. The front fan does push quite a bit of air even with the hard drive mounts right behind it. The side fan turns low...
Cons: Only cons I have is that the front USB's are in the wrong way, like most USB's are being put now a days. The front door is a tad loose feeling. It shuts with no problem and while shut everything is very tight. Only while opened is it loose. My advice is dont bump it while opened!
Summary: I can't contest to installation, I only plugged in everything and made sure it worked good. The fan WASNT broken like many people say it is, it's meant to be bent down. I'm just waiting on the motherboard, then I'll resubmit a review stating that. (No motherboard yet?
Pros: I was worried. My motherboard only has 3 fan ports and I needed 4, fortunately each fan (only 2, see cons later) comes with the option of using a 3-pin connector, or the 4pin molex (works as a bridge so you don't lose a molex). Fans are extremely quiet, the front 140 is a little louder but its to...
Cons: The 180 doesnt move as much air as I had originally thought, not really a con since it still holds it's own pretty good. No back fan included, kind of disappointing, but just buy a $6 120mm or steal a fan from a previous build and your good to go.
Summary: Old ASUS P5LD2 with Core2Duo 2.4ghz overclocked to 3.3, 4 gigs ram, 200 gig hard drive, 512 HIS "overclocked" vid Card, and a couple DVD burners to boot. Best case for a game build
Pros: It's a lot bigger than what New Egg specified. Luckily it still fits where I want it to go. It's so roomy and I love the tool-less design. Everything just snapped in and ready to go. I bought this to get more air in the case and so far it achieves it... I need to get some software installed to te...
Cons: My Powersuppy is coming tomorrow, as well as the dual layer DVD burner... so i just have it running off an old power supply... as for the case... it's bigger then the dimensions specified, but not much bigger.
Summary: Installed MSI K9A2 Platinum mobo, Phenom 9850 BE Quad (overclocked). Stock CPU air cooling. CPU temp and system temp remain C-O-O-L!!!
Pros: Beautiful and cool (looks cool and cool temps). Fans work great and quiet. I did add a 120mm rear fan to help exhaust air out (psu also exhausts, but with the two huge case fans bringing in fresh air, I wanted to help the air flow on out).
Cons: Not a con for me, but if you're looking for a small case, this isn't the one for you.
Summary: Where's the rear exhaust fan? No problem. I have many laying around.
Pros: The other reviews of this case had me worried regarding how mine would show up-broken this and broken that-but I must be one of the lucky ones b/c mine is perfect. The case fan in front is supposed to be angled slightly down by design. At first I thought it was broken but the photos show the fan ...
