  • Pros: Pretty spacious, lots of room to work with. The fans are nice stock fans if you like the blue look. Come with USB 3.0 in the top front. Lots of drive bay space.
  • Cons: The cable management isn't as good as, let's say, a corsair case. If you are looking for optimal cooling, get some better fans.

5 years goin strong!

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Seriously going to keep this case forever. I'm rebuilding my entire computer next year and will be sticking with this case :p
  • Pros: I've had this case for 5 years now, and I've yet to replace anything on it. It's been through 3 cross country moves, smacked, dropped, tipped over, scuffed, scratched, kicked, you name it. This case is a BEAST. It's got plenty of room for anything, I've got so much unused space in it it's unreal.
  • Cons: One minor con: Cable management space can be somewhat limited, but you just need to be creative and be liberal with zip ties! Only other con I can think of is you have to take off both side panels to access the mounting screws that hold the fan/hard drive bays, in order to slide them out far enou...

Very good case

Kannan M., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: Have had this case for more than 4 years now. Very easy to clean and reassemble. Would have preferred a little more space on the back to allow easier cable management - but it's not very thin to complain as well. Had to replace the top 200 mm fan once - but that's all so far. Love the ability to ...
  • Cons: Case fan holder on the side plastic pane could get in the way depending on your configuration.

The old tank

Joseph U., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • Summary: Most of the cons I mentioned have been resolved in the 1200 R3, which is actually cheaper than this model now, I picked my R1 up for $130 around December 2008, and it's been a sturdy, good looking case. I'd still recommend the 1200 as a case, but get the R3
  • Pros: So I want to start by saying that I've had this case since around December 2008, since then it's played host to 3 different builds, and while it's getting a bit long in the tooth for a PC component, it still does a great job of keeping everything inside cool. The fact that you can move the hard d...
  • Cons: If this were a new case, these would probably be enough to dock an egg, but seeing as this is the 1200 R1 from 2008, I'm gonna let it slide, just letting people know what to expect here. No intake cutout for bottom mounted PSU, most new cases have a grill for your power supply to pull fresh, cold...

Overall Great Full Tower

Craig M., Newegg
9 April 2015
  • Summary: Couple things to consider: - This case has a bottom mounted SSD spot, with a very very large PSU I can imagine this would be an issue. If you have a few solid states or like to have them all mounted in a bay you will need to get a 2.5 adapter kit.
  • Pros: This case is an amazing full tower, lots of airflow and plenty of room. -One of the biggest pro's for me is the convenient amount of space for cable management behind the mobo, I have had some cases that are just too much and some that are too little. -Adjustable fan speed comes build in and work...
  • Cons: Some may say its too heavy but its a full tower so I fully expect that. Fans on full speed move a lot of air, hence a little noise from the airflow, but again if you buy a case with 6 fans stock you probably are not going for a silent rig.

It's alright.

DOUGLAS M., Newegg
8 April 2015
  • Summary: I've owned mine for many years, and it's done a decent job of doing what it's supposed to do. I even added a couple of 80mm fans to the side panel with no issue. I ended up taking out the filters because they ultimately hurt more than they helped. I've never had an issue with a part being too large.
  • Pros: The thing is HUGE. It'll fit everything you've got and then some. In addition, it's got a TON of fans, and half of them are filtered. It does a good job at keeping any components inside cool. Bottom mounted PSU is great. LOTS of drive bays, plenty of room for a ton of hard drives. Good cable mana...
  • Cons: The filters for the fans are a pain to remove. As in, most of the time you won't bother. You see, in order to do so, you have to remove ALL of the hard drive bays. The top 200mm fan is, like most all 200mm fans I've dealt with, unlike any other on the market, so replacing it is a pain. In fact, r...

  • Pros: Lots of fans.
  • Cons: System still overheats (not overclocked), cages do not fit well, covers pop off, case sides do not fit well.
