Great case for the price

Laura S., Newegg
27 November 2015
  • Summary: Rear 90mm fan mount also fits 120 mm fan depending on cable situation. I recommend this case for any budget ATX format build. It will fit anything you need and more.
  • Pros: -Surprisingly sturdy -Blue LEDs look fantastic -Includes more than enough screws and mounts -Spacious -Cheap -Power button feels nice and sturdy
  • Cons: -Front USB ports are a bit wobbly, but are fine for thumb drives or dongles. -This case is BIG. Be sure to check that you have enough space. -Sides are slightly flexible, but not a big deal because the frame is sturdy.

Amazing, faceplate fits my old case.

Zesira S., Newegg
24 November 2015
  • Summary: I couldn't be more satisfied. I have a contemporary look without the stress of handling my fragile motherboard. For the value, there is no better case. And sentimental to the bare bones of my youth.
  • Pros: This ATX case is actually identical to my old case from 2004 minus the design of the faceplate and the LED colors... It was really easy to install the faceplate after I removed it from this case. Since the case design is all the same specification there was no need to transfer the motherboard, ma...
  • Cons: No SSD bay. However, there are 3.5 drive adapters that will suite just fine. I'm using one. No side fan housing. My old case had side fan housing so I just used the same side when I transferred the faceplate. I now have a product of two cases, but the used one's designated home will have to be a ...

Good Case

David B., Newegg
22 August 2015
  • Pros: Good Case.. No Frills. Cheap enough and free shipping.
  • Cons: It doesn't have mounds for a 3.5 SSD.. That's my fault for being stupid and not checking. Don't worry.. I totally used some double sided velcro on that bad boy. Works good. Last long time. The nice people at the USPS also decided to play soccer with it. So it came all bent up in both bottom corne...

Damaged upon receipt

ALAN E., Newegg
30 June 2015
  • Summary: Try it out, send it back if you don't like it or spend more money and get a coolermaster HFA
  • Pros: IDK what NE is thinking when then send these out via cheap couriers, or why they don't send folks out on quality assessments with the drivers, but we've been seeing more of our packages being bent up or flat out destroyed. I'm not sure what the deal with this was, but we never got a chance to use...
  • Cons: Cheap case and you get what you pay for

Cheap/working case

Michael T., Newegg
9 June 2015
  • Summary: This case has served well, I wont be tossing it, but keeping it for a work station build for my wife.
  • Pros: 2nd case was fine on arrival and had all the space I needed for my build. Felt pretty solid. I purchased in 2011 for a build that I am now replacing. I've moved this case numerous times and I can say it doesn't flex at all and took a few bumps over the years. No clips have broken and all the ligh...
  • Cons: The first case arrived all bent up. Not something that could be used. RMA was easy. Front is plastic and has had to be re-snapped in place a few times. I have found, after some upgrades, the case did tend to keep things hotter than other people reported with the same components. I replaced the in...

What's the deal?

Ian B., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought this case a year ago just over $20 all-in, and it was well worth the price. For $35, I'd expect it to be made of titanium, not thin, sharp, highly-flexible steel. Did steel just become a precious metal investment commodity, or something?
  • Pros: Decent ultra-low-end case Used to be cheap Decent space
  • Cons: No longer for sale in its value class No fans iffy steel frustrating usb design that encourages accidental shutdowns/warm boots New pricing scheme is rediculous

Not pretty, gets the job done.

Christopher B., Newegg
6 March 2015
  • Summary: General statement about all Apex cases - they generally feel sturdier than other budget offerings, have little perks like removable drive bays, etc. and they are among the least attractive product line currently available.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, serves its purpose
  • Cons: Ugly as the day is long
