Fantastic ATX Case
28 November 2010
Summary: I purchased this case 8 months ago, and It's proven to be quite exceptional. It's roomy, very sturdily constructed, and the top and side case fan mounts are perfectly located. I'm quite pleased with this product and plan to buy from this manufacturer in the future.
Summary: I have spent 3 times as much for poorer quality products. The build quality is solid, the case is a joy to work in, and I didn't see any sharp edges. Bad points:hard drive cage isn't tool free, you need a screw driver and a couple of the screws are tricky. Thin metal. No removable Mobo tray. If you have a PSU with a lot of extra or long cables, it can be a bit challenging to tuck them all behind the mobo. paint could be better.
Summary: Has enough ventilation and space The position of the PSU it's in the button so you will probably have to buy some extensions, but it improves the cooling The front panel has a led fan and a filter, it would be cool to have filters in the top and in the sides but it doesn't so the dust keeps coming It has a cage to hold 4 HD's and one fan, if you want more disks or another fan in the front you will have to buy a new cage It hasn't a reset button You can connect the drives...
Summary: This is a great spacious case that very much met and exceeded my needs. Its housing the i5-750 and very well at that. I recommend buying a nice case above all else-I tried using a crappier atx case that just didn't fit my board. The installation ease and room for expansion are both well worth paying for. I will say that the SATA installation wasn't as streamlined as it could be, but it totally fits my needs.
Summary: What finally won me over to the 590 after looking at somany reviews was the attrictive price (75$ shipping handeling and tax included)and the sturdy,roomy design. I wanted a case that could handle two 9800 GTX+ cards in sli and two+ harddrives. It does. Even better, it does this having about 3 inches of clearence between the cards and the hard drives while retaining the front 120mm fan--no moving anything around!
Summary: Bought this for my son to build his first computer. With a new mobo, cpu, and graphic card we removed the drives from his old HP and I coached him through building a very strong gaming machine. Everything with this case just simply works as planned. Lots of room inside for cable routing and large graphics cards, screwless mounting, and all around well thought design made the job a breeze.
Summary: Great case, easy to install. Although the PSU goes on the bottom you might have to overstretch some cables to get em places, specially the processor cables. The sound cables for the front of the case didn't fit on my motherboard(wrong pins in wrong places). Also the audio link didn't fit on my motherboard. The case is rock solid, but if you don't take advantage of the fans you'll end up with a load of dust in your PC. Really easy to install tho.
Summary: This case is pretty good for the money. Depending on your needs, you may prefer the Antec 300 for about the same money. Pros: 1. Side cooling holes for cooling mobo and videocard 2. Top cooling vents 3. Bottom-mounted PSU -- PSU can be mounted rightside or upside down. Cons: 1. HDD cage holds 4 3.5" hdds 2. Need to buy more 3.5" cages to hold more than 4 hdds 3. Lack of extra fan mounting screws. 4. No reset button Compare Antec 300 vs.
Summary: I think the case has a lot of potential to be used by a gamer. I am not a gamer, and I find the case fantastic for personal use too. I give it a five star rating because I like how the case is built, easy assembly, and blue lights for all indicators (hard drive, on/off, and fans). The price is right. What more can you ask for?
