Still holding up

Michael E., Newegg
1 May 2014
  • Summary: purchased this case a couple years ago when my system was nothing but a dual core machine, I slowly added more hardware to the point where I exceed the capabilities of this case , it sat in a closet for 1 year and when I decided to build my server in 2013 I put this case back to work and now it is hold 8 HDD's running 24/7 and still holding up
  • Pros: its ok if you not using it for a server, its a nice entry level builder case
  • Cons: not good cable management

It's an okay case.

George S., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Pros: Inexpensive case with an all-metal interior. Side panels are easy to remove and replace, and the front panel is easy to remove and replace. It holds your computer parts, and has mounting points for big, air-moving, quiet 120mm fans. It's also reasonably well-built for the price. Structurally, this thing has it down. What more could you ask for?
  • Cons: The front ports are flimsy, and will die after a period of use. They're also not spaced apart particularly far, so it's tough to even put all four of those USB 2.0 ports to use. Nonetheless, after enough plug/unplug cycles, they will get increasingly finicky before ceasing to work at all. This took place in under a year of ownership. I will probably re-use the case for another machine, and I'll get it an alternative front panel, but that looks tacky and kind of sucks,...

  • Pros: Great case for the price, looks fantastic and has plenty of room.
  • Cons: Quality is good, not great, metal is kinda on the thin side, minus one egg for that.

Good cheap case

Reseller, Newegg
15 July 2013
  • Summary: For the price I am pleased. Installing everything was a pain but once it was all put together I have zero complaints. For a budget office build, I would highly recommend.
  • Pros: -Surprisingly quiet -Plenty of room for additional fans -Cheap
  • Cons: -Power Supply mounted on top and the holes did not match up at all... Had to take off the top part of the case and mount the power supply then put the top part back on. Not pretty, but it works. - Front pops off and the corner is not flush with the rest of the case. Makes it easier to grip and take off but a bit of an eye sore

Not good from the start

Timothy R., Newegg
24 June 2013
  • Pros: Everything fit, barely. I appreciate the simple quarter turn, double-pin mechanism used for securing drives. Very simple to install components. Fans are reasonably quiet. Panels simple to remove and install.
  • Cons: Motherboard hold down screws too short to reach case through board. Had to use screws I had from previous build. Case is very tight to install components. One of two double USB ports on front damaged when it arrived so had to send back. Called manufacturer's tech support, would not speak with me. Had to submit emais and call several times to get a response. When told I had to return case and given the lack of interest in support I chose to purchase a case from another...

Nice Case

David P., Newegg
6 June 2013
  • Summary: Noise - not bad - It's louder than my PCs with careful fan specs. At the BIOS screen the MoBo temperature is in the low to mid 30s and the CPU is low to mid 40s.
  • Pros: 4 USB ports on front – happy customer. Tool-less drives are nice and easy. One side of drive rack is fully populated with tool-less mounts, the other side is empty, the spare parts includes one each of the optical drive and the hard drive. OK fine. PC is only using those two. Standoffs for microATX were spot on. I did damage the HDMI shield when installing. Did not want to reinstall the motherboard so I used pliers to bend and snap off the ground shield for the HDMI p...
  • Cons: Case had shipping problems – back lower right corner of case was bent - looks like a blow to the screw more than just a blow to the corner. Shipping box was cracked on the corner and had a puncture wound on the side - no ill effect on the side. Not returning it, used it as is. Power button was stuck after first use!!! - took off the bezel - problem is drag in the plastic pusher, not the switch itself. Used an emory board to file the plastic pusher - less resistance no...

Amazing case

Igor D., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Summary: GET IT
  • Pros: Okay, I've had this case for over 2 years and I gotta say it is totally worth it! Very strong and sturdy, full of features, black inside, very easy to hide all the extra cables, wide which is good for an aftermarket CPU cooler (I didn't think mine would fit when I bought it, but it actually has quite a bit of room to spare!), bezel isn't too complicated but not boring, side panel has awesome design which holds fans too, both panels come off, 3x 5.25" bays and 2x 3.5" ...
  • Cons: PSU on top, kinda weak plastic front-bezel, probably not much room if you put a huge video card in. USB/eSATA port on the bezel looks kinda cheap, hard to clean out dust, gotta really get some 25gal air compressor for that, or wash it out well

Nice Case

Charles W., Newegg
9 April 2013
  • Pros: Not a bad case. Had a little issue with getting the PSU in, holes didn't quite line up. But after taking care of that it was very straight forward.
  • Cons: The only thing I would like different is for the HDD bays to either be adjustable to turned to face out of the case.

  • Summary: Overall it fits my needs for now. If only it had more room!
  • Pros: -Looks nice. -Two case fans. -Stays very cool. -Plenty of drive bays. -Good price.
  • Cons: Cramped for room. Don't expect to get two gpu's in this thing. My mother board barely fit. Graphics card aswell. but again, no way you are going to fit two good sized grapics cards in here with a decent sized heatsink.
