made it 5 years

Brian B., Newegg
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Used this as a server case for 5 years, power supply failed today. Maybe thats normal? Not sure, I've got many systems with power supplies twice as old that still run.
  • Pros: Quiet, relativly easy to work in
  • Cons: power supply died

Great Value

Anonymous, Newegg
18 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a great deal for $80 shipped, and great for those with lower-end PCs or old PCs that need a new case. Similar configurations would cost over $100 if you bought a decent case and a decent power supply together.
  • Pros: Looks plain, but good. The chassis is SECC, but it is fairly lightweight and more robust than aluminum cases. Construction is fine, front USB works, and uses standard screw-on motherboard risers which are my personal favorite (as apposed to Lian-Li removable risers). Layout is simple, and expansi...
  • Cons: No removable motherboard tray but doesn't really need one. Hard drive cage placement right underneath the 5.25" drive bay may cause a little tightness depending on how your motherboard is laid out. Only two spots intended for hard drive mounting. Front bezel is plastic. You have to remove the top...

Good cheaper case/psu

Derek N., Newegg
14 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a great case for home/office style basic computers, I wouldn't throw a ultra high end video card in it simply because of cooling limitations, although a pci slot exhaust cooler would help that.
  • Pros: Quiet good looking, good quality psu especially for the price being an included psu. Had plenty of long enough cables, ties for the cables, rubber mounts for hard drives, decent air flow, all around good solid case for a standard home/office system.
  • Cons: Comes apart a little funny, not really a con but it's different.

Cool case

David W., Newegg
11 April 2009
  • Pros: This is a quality case with a top rated power supply. The case is much cooler and quiter then I thought it would be. I built this one for my brother who wanted it for the living room. It had to be quiet, effiecent and still perform well. I am impressed with how well it met all of the requirements.
  • Cons: none

None to shabby at all

Richard D., Newegg
9 April 2009
  • Summary: Thought about knocking off a star because of the size, but it doesn't really affect too much (has a Radeon 4670 and 3 hard drives, all fits fine). Replaced the PSU with an Antec 550 (modular), helped with cable management.
  • Pros: Very sturdy, very easy to work with. Very clean looking, great for offices and homes alike. PSU preinstalled, saves time if you don't have a better one to put in, easy to get to otherwise. Somewhat compact for a mid-tower (see cons). Good reliable PSU included (great back up PSU for me). Pretty q...
  • Cons: It's not as big as it looked in the pictures. Rather, it's not as long as I thought it would be. Don't plan on getting it if you're looking at one of the beefier graphics cards (a la 8/9800GT or bigger) because you'll be stuck wondering where it will fit (or removing hard drives to make it fit). ...

Great case/PSU for $70

David R., Newegg
2 April 2009
  • Summary: I'd buy this case again in a moment at $70 with free shipping. At $100 + $20 shipping I think I'd look around first.
  • Pros: 1) Cost, though to be fair I got it as a shell-shocker for $70 delivered, so it was an even better deal than otherwise. 2) Quality: The case seems well made and I found it more attractive in person than in the photos. (This was to build a computer as a gift and it needed to look good.) I was worr...
  • Cons: 1) I would have preferred that the rear 120mm fan were mb controlled. I'm using a very low-power AMD chip so it doesn't matter much (set the speed to medium and that's fine), but I would have rather it were temp-controlled. 2) Very minor issue, but I agree with another reviewer that the front LED...

price???

Brian S., Newegg
27 March 2009
  • Pros: good PSU
  • Cons: Um, why does this case cost more than $60???? I'm looking for a new case to be my standard for my computer store, and this looks good, but my previous case was $45 and came with a 450Watt PSU, that had 28Amps on the 12V rail; come on Antec. Be reasonable.

Solid case, loud fan

Jesse E., Newegg
24 March 2009
  • Pros: Case is solid with plenty of room for expansion.
  • Cons: 120 mm case fan is louder than I expected. I bought this case with the intention of making a silent computer and I'm disappointed. Perhaps I'm being picky, but the fan isn't controllable by the motherboard, it only has a three speed switch and the slowest speed is unacceptable for an HTPC. The fa...

14 March 2009

  • Cons: None.
