Good Basic Case

Lorenzo C., Newegg
13 September 2014
  • Summary: put an 80mm fan on the side vent, 80mm fan on the back and front where the HDD goes. Not sure how much air fllow the front fan will provide as there is no vent in front, besides the space in between the front panel and case.
  • Pros: The two vertical lines on the front panel of the case light up blue, if facing the front of the case, the left one is the HDD light and the other is just the power/message light. Case is fine for the price.
  • Cons: No fans included, but you should know that when buying it.

Impressive Case!

Zeno C., Newegg
4 September 2014
  • Pros: Bought this case for a client and I was very impressed. Nice blue lights on the front, there is a lot of space, decent airflow. Came with plenty of screws.
  • Cons: Can easily cut yourself if you slip while installing a component so be careful. The metal can be sharp in some places.

The Cons Out Weigh the Pros

Dustin A., Newegg
15 August 2014
  • Summary: I wish I would have spent an extra 10 dollar on a different case. This is by far the worst case I've ever used.
  • Pros: low cost, and it has USB 2.0 with audio jacks in the front.
  • Cons: Connectors for the power switch and reset switch were in pieces when I opened the case. I ended up soldering on new connectors from an old case. The case itself rattles (it sounds like its going to explode) whenever my CPU or system fan gets up to speed. I ended up using weather stripping along the sides where the panels go on. That seemed to fix the issue, kind of. The last complaint is the lights on the front. Maybe its just me, but when you have on light strips tha...

Good but should be a bit longer

Dylan D., Newegg
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Great looking case, there are actually some LEDs that I didn't know about so that's pretty sweet. Case also fits everything well as I said before, so I would recommend getting this case !
  • Pros: Big case, fits everything well, is easy to carry. Things that need to be taken out (brackets in the back, sections in the front for hard drives and cd drives) can be taken out fairly easily, just twist a bit and you should get the metal parts out. It fits the motherboard pretty good to be honest, and everything is rather easy to set up.
  • Cons: One problem that I ran into with this case is that it actually had a hard time fitting my Gigabyte R7 260X graphics card, not sure if I just wasn't putting it in right or what. I got it to fit after, just had to try a bit harder than I was trying. If you have a smaller graphics card this shouldn't be a problem, as my graphics card was just huge due to the fans and the length and such.

Avoid like the plague.

Anonymous, Newegg
18 June 2014
  • Summary: Newegg, LET PEOPLE EDIT THEIR REVIEWS.
  • Pros: It came with lots of screws and some standoffs, which was nice.
  • Cons: Either this suffers from blatantly poor design and manufacturing, or I hit the defective product jackpot. - (Possibly) Cheap metal results in the case vibrating and making a lot of noise from the hard drive. I haven't seen this issue in any other case. - Loose/cheaply made plastic feet results in more vibration - I had no luck getting either front LED to work - Front audio/USB works, but if you connect front audio AND front USB, you hear buzzing inside the front audio...

An update to the review on 5/15/2014

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I made the dumb mistake of reviewing the case before having a chance to turn my computer on. Never doing that again.
  • Pros: Listed in my other review: Somewhat reliably built, doesn't scratch easily Front/back fan vents Back fan vents made to fit multiple fan sizes Includes standoffs and LOTS of screws
  • Cons: The case is apparently built with the assumption that you're going to have a 5.25" disk drive installed to tighten up the upper area where the 5.25" bays are. I don't, and in my case with a 3.5" HDD, the case rattles LOUDLY. Try at your own risk if you plan to have a 5.25" drive you plan to install, otherwise I wouldn't recommend this unless you use a SSD.
