Summary: Power supply mounts one way (I think, not taking it back out to double check). The intention was to utilize the bottom filtered intake. This was helpful as it put the power cables closer to the back of the case an route them behind the board quicker an cleaner.
Pros: Very affordable case when they have them in stock. The black textured paint used looks good inside an out so they didn't cheap out there. Plenty of cable management openings to work with. The tool-less optical drive mounting was finicky, but after installing a drive 3 holes lined up so you can se...
Cons: The case metal is a thinner softer metal than my Antec Nine Hundred so you do have to be cautious when working with the case. Definitely not a good choice for portable LAN case. Front case fan mounts are two screws (long ones that seem like an after thought, not designed for this use) in two corn...
Pros: I needed a case that was light, cheap and could sit on the floor under my sons' desk. This is my first case with the bottom mounted power supply. I was able to route most of the cables through the provided openings and behind or around the motherboard creating a very clean look. Tips case has roo...
Cons: #1) lack of good written instructions #2) More of a trade of than a con: New cases seems thin and flimsy but they are very light. #3) The 3.5 HDD provided plastic rails are a little too cheap and don't stay on well. Also the drives face the back of the motherboard instead of out towards the left ...
Summary: I bought two of these for my workstations. The minimalist design is great -- no flashy logo or overt techno-styling. I'm using a pair of i7-4790 CPUs with GTX-960 cards. I'm no game player but these are nice boxes. I needed clean simple cases in two locations these work well.
System runs very cool. I would suggest picking up a few additional ...

Summary: Just purchased the case for an FX-8320E /16GB file/VM server. I used an Evo 212 cooler and was worried it was going to stick out too much. Since the sides of the case stick out a bit it fits in there snugly. It touches the side of the case but barely. System runs very cool.
Its cheap, its black, and its a box, don't expect ANYTHING else.

Summary: Its a case...a black box that holds your computer components; if that is all you want, this will be fine. If you want something with some quality, go with something else, because this ISN'T it.
Pros: Easy cable management, plenty of air flow and fan placement options, every cord under the sun. Only has one light, the one designating that the power is on (which is blue). One of the main reasons I bought it- I hate light up cases. I've owned it for 2 years now.
Cons: It arrived with one of the plastic foot insert locations bent, keeping me from being able to secure the foot. So it's wobbly. I'd already had to wait 2 weeks to replace my power supply (which I had to jimmy because of the metal foot insert locaton being bent inwards) so I said "whatever" and just...
Looked for something low-cost but with some features like USB 3

Summary: I needed a new case for my son's mishmash PC. Looked for something low-cost but with some features like USB 3.0 so when I do upgrade his PC I won't need another case. It's made from thin metal and plastic so don't expect any silence. For $50 or less this is perfect.
Summary: I looked around a ton as I was trying to build my first PC as cheap as possible and found this case to meet all my wants. It has room for 5 fans not including the power supply fan and it looks sweet of you put LED fans on the front, top, and side openings.
Summary: I just transplanted my computer from an old case to this one, It is starting to get hot and I needed a case with more cooling because I don't have A/C. This case has ok wire management. If you have a modular PSU, it will neatly hide and contain all your cabling.
Pros: Nice finish. Ok wire management. Lots of spots for fans.
Cons: Pop out expansion slot covers instead of re-useable bolt in covers. Tight fit for larger CPU heat sinks. Upper 2.5 drive bay is weak
