Love the cooling

Shane Y., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Good case The door can be annoying but That's not really its fault it says it has one. I Just picked up a powered USB hub and have it on my desk so the loss of 2 usb ports isn't really a issue.
  • Pros: The case is huge some may consider this a con but I love all the room inside, The case and huge 250mm fan on the side keeps all my stuff nice and cool.
  • Cons: The top 2 USB ports are dead worse yet they took my cellphone and flash drive with them, I got the flash drive for free with a order so W/E and my cell phone was replaced under its protection plan so no real harm done but top ports are still junk, also the audio jacks don't work all that well.

Great Case but too small

Camron C., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • Summary: This will not fit the bigger power supplies in it. -Mid Tower- if you need more space get a full tower
  • Pros: Cool looking case with a big side panel fan. Had Cool Features like temperature monitor and fan control.
  • Cons: The fan speed control doesn't really do much but that doesn't really matter it still looks cool. I bought this case not realizing that it wouldn't fit my components in it. This is purely my fault so i won't deduct an egg. Overall Great Case.

Great Value

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Used this case in a budget build for my brother. For the price you can't beat it. The airflow is amazing for something that costs $30.00 plus it looks great.
  • Cons: The fan controller really doesn't seem to do much but I really didn't expect it 2.

First Impressions

Joseph P., Newegg
28 January 2011
  • Summary: I only have one HDD bay used, which gave me enough room to route the case cables (power switch, fan controller, etc) through the unused HDD bays. This makes it look very neat and clean.
  • Pros: The case is pretty sturdy. Comes with two case fans. It looks pretty cool with the blue LEDs. It is large, had no problem fitting my AMD HD 6850 graphics card in it - but it's not too big. I love the easy sliding rails for the hard drives and the snap-in tabs for the 5" drive bays.
  • Cons: Needed to buy a third 120mm case fan (for the front). The power buttons are inside the door, which can be a little annoying. It's hard to route cables behind the case/underneath the motherboard (but it's doable if you don't have all the 5" drive bays filled). The little tabs over the PCI slots lo...

2 year review

Daniel B., Newegg
29 December 2010
  • Summary: It is a good case for those who are on a budget and who need something sturdy and nice looking. Yes, workspace can be tight, and there are a few oversights which should be corrected, but in all, it's a good case and it's an affordable alternative to those cases offered by more expensive brands such...
  • Pros: First off, after owning this case for 2 years I must say it has held together quite well. The large 250mm fan still blows in air, and the case itself has not gotten any scratches. The front door, which seemed flimsy at first has held on. Overall, a good sturdy case for those on a budget.
  • Cons: The clips holding anything in the back (video card for example) are quite flimsy. The hard drive rails are also a bit fragile and can lose their rivets easily. Dust is a problem for this case, since there are no filters; it is wise to dust it with compressed air at least every month. As stated be...

Solid performer good features

Nicholas M., Newegg
2 November 2010
  • Summary: This is a very well made case and I have worked with many over the years. Definatly of the same caliber as the Antec sonata in terms of features and performance. All the blue LEDs present could be annoying if this a bedroom pc so keep that in mind.
  • Pros: This case is a sold choice and has proved to have good performance and air flow for the money. This was bought for me as a gift. I like there is lots of air and the temp readout is still working 2 years after original purchase. There is space for 4 HDDs in this puppy as is a quiet performer even ...
  • Cons: The case is very tight to work in being a mid tower. have a cooler master 850 PSU and had to shove all the cables were the cd-rom expansion bays would be. It is almost a must to buy just enough PSU for your needs. Also if you have more than one video card look elsewhere for your case. The aluminu...

18 October 2010
  • Summary: It works well for the price, if I had to make the decision again I would have chosen a full tower, instead of going for looks
  • Pros: Pros of this case are as follows Cable management is okay, not the best but not the worst (You can slide cables under the drive bays. Fits my GTX260 with little problem, took a little maneuvering (Had to take the default HD bay out to fit the card in first, but that's no problem) Cooling works fi...
  • Cons: List of cons The little tabs above the PCI and PCI-e ports snap (Cheap and don't even have any real purpose) The rails over some of the drives snap (No problem, I do not like using sliding rails to keep my stuff in place, would rather use screws) The fan bearings for the side of the case went wit...

User Review

  • Summary: Why do new PC fans die when PC fans from the 1980's still work?
  • Pros: Nice case overall. Looks good, easy install except for the front fan.
  • Cons: The big 250mm fan (why I chose this case ) was dead within 26 days. The front 120mm that I added was a little difficult to install, but the big fan dying that fast is totally unacceptable.

Good Case for the Money

John C., Newegg
27 May 2010
  • Summary: After a little over two years my 120mm back fan is going out. Nothing is perfect.
  • Pros: Tool-less design was a big deal to me. It fit my Tuniq 120 after I removed the huge side fan. I was not sure it would work.
  • Cons: I don't like the cheesy blue lights. I'd like to have the on/off button accessible without having to open the front door on the case.
