  • Summary: This is a nice, silent case. I love the cable routing and the drive bays. Cons: There is no provision from front USB3.0, I don't like the SSD mount, and the main case fan is not thermally controlled. It also irritates me that the power button is behind a door. Still a fantastic case, would buy again.
  • Pros: Quiet, solidly built.
  • Cons: Power switch behind door

  • Summary: Bought this for a budget desktop build because it came with a power supply. For the price I paid, it is a very good price especially since the power supply is decent enough to run low to mid tier setup. The noise level is surprisingly low though this is only my initial impression of it.
  • Pros: size, light weight, quiet
  • Cons: 5.25" drive bay sticks out but a very minor thing, PSU wasn't modular, but you get what you pay for

  • Summary: I've got a power meter hooked up to my PC right now. With Prime95 and Furmark running I'm hitting about 450 watts. The air coming out of the power supply is still nice and cool, and the small fan is quieter than the case fan at the back. Easy HD mounting, air filter catches the big stuff, and decent airflow. I can't get anything to overheat even with the single exhaust fan at the back of the case.
  • Pros: Rock solid power supply, Good airflow, Easy to work in
  • Cons: Wish the front didn't have a door on it., Not as quiet as it claims to be.

  • Summary: This case is great for the price when it's on sale and it looks very nice. The only problem I had was installing the motherboard due to limited space inside it. When installing the RAMs and power cables I felt that my mobo may be splitting into half as it didn't have supports on one side. There weren't a lot of accessories coming with this case compared to my previous antec cases, but for the sale price, this was a great buy and I'll do it again.
  • Pros: Good quality, comes with 500W PSU
  • Cons: price, space, accessories

  • Summary: If you don't have an issue with the fingerprints staying on this super elegant glossy case, this is the one for you. It looks great, and has lots of space for your components. Couple that with a 120MM fan (that is relatively quiet) and a 500W eco PSU and you have a terrific bang for your buck. Don't hesitate on this one.
  • Pros: elegant, price, size
  • Cons: gloss finish leaves fingerprints

  • Summary: I've bought many of these cases and they are great for office or light gamers. They are very cheap, considering you are getting a high quality case and a power supply that can power a lot of hardware.
  • Pros: - Unexpensive sturdy case, - Great power supply, - Absolutely silent, - Two included fans with front cleaning mesh
  • Cons: - Not black inside (nice touch), - Side not removable; cannot install backplate for big cooling fans.
