  • Summary: Coming from many cases in the past some double the price of this case. This to date is my new favorite case and sets a standard of what cases should be priced at and what they should include. This case made my build easy and very clean with little effort.
  • Pros: Proper watercooling support,Full side window,Great looks and a great price.
  • Cons: Suffers from lack of intake for fans. Screws in drive bays cause tight fit and scratches.

  • Summary: This is a vety excellent value for people who want a full tower case on a budget. its built very well with plenty of room for watercooling. The pros definitly outweigh the cons. Any cons are very minor and are not that big of a deal
  • Pros: Fantastic value for a full tower case. Nice and heavy, built very well. clean and minimalistic design. quiet stock fans
  • Cons: Front fan filter should be able to be accesed easier and should be a finer mesh to catch more dust. Bottom front dust filters should not be attatched to the case, very hard to remove. The only proper filter is the one under the PSU. Front and top covers require lot of force to remove. It would be...

  • Summary: I bought this case for a first ever build and I'm very satisfied. At this price point it is great value. Excellent build quality; all the panels feel very sturdy. Tons of cable management room on the back of the MB tray as well.
  • Pros: Very large, 5 5.75" front bays, lots of room to work and expand. Fits the Noctua NH-D14 Cooler with ease.
  • Cons: Front panel has a slight rattle when the fans spin up. Not all the time, but every now and again.

  • Summary: Bought this case to replace my HAF 922. This case has lots of space and is good for cable management. The window on the side is not pink as shown in the picture. The drive mounts are pretty horrible, all the middle bays were either too bent or the plastic trays were too skinny to hold drives safely.
  • Pros: Heavy, Decent Airflow, Lots of space, Fan filters
  • Cons: Floppy drive mounts

  • Summary: I really needed a case that was actually built for triple rad watercooling. runs slightly warmer than my HAF 932 or 922, but given it has no side case fan, to be expected. its a quiet and goodlooking case. given the nature of watercooling and setup expect to take awhile.
  • Pros: big, pretty, tons of room for triple rad watercooling and cable management.
  • Cons: took 8hrs to setup my rig, but that comes with extreme watercooling...

  • Summary: The accessories box and the other goodies were loose and during shipping caused major scratches in the side window panel, especially with white LED makes it even worse. The front bay adapter does not have the same soft touch coating as the case and was covered in dirt, felt gritty.
  • Pros: size, style, price
  • Cons: cheap materials, poor quality control and worst customer service ever.

  • Summary: Overall very pleased with this case. It looks good and is very functional. It comes with a 5.25 - 3.5 inch bay adapter which is nice. Side panels are very easy to remove. For what's it's worth, this case is replacing a Silverstone TJ07 and I choose the Shinobi Window XL to be the TJ07's successor.
  • Pros: Clean, professional look. Comes with 3 quiet fans. Excellent build quality.
  • Cons: Top and front panels require lots of force to remove. CPU cutout needs to be larger - backplate on my CPU HSF is partially obstructed.

  • Summary: Everything on the case are great except for the fan filters. If they had thrown in magnetic filters like the Obsidian Series 550D.
  • Pros: Lots of room inside the case, and the case looks really clean inside and out.
  • Cons: The 2 dust filters on the bottom should be easy removable and not screwed in with the case fan. Also wished that the top had filters too. The filter in the front of the case is kind of weak because it's so thin.

  • Pros: All black exterior and interior, A very clean looking case get for modding
  • Cons: Can't fit a radiator with two fans in push and pull configuration on top without it hitting the motherboard

  • Pros: Отличный большой корпус. Установил все вентиляторы на минимум. Шум практически отсутствует, но......
  • Cons: 1. Салазки для 3.5 жестких дисков сделаны из хлипкого пластика,а не из метала.Для такого недешевого корпуса могли бы и нормальные поставить из металла. 2. Передняя стенка сделана из пластика и очень сильно передает вибрации от жестких дисков (у меня их 4). Из за этого отчетливо слышен шум. Решает...
