Good While It Lasted

Jeremiah W., Newegg
16 September 2015
  • Summary: Only replaced parts in this once or twice, so very disjointed with the that the product did not last the test of time. If it would have lasted, the ease and convenience of the case would have made it a real winner.
  • Pros: First build was very nice and easy thinking this was a great buy.
  • Cons: After a few years, the plastic pieces became exceedingly brittle to the touch - braking easily. This rendered the hard drive bays useless and the quick latches for the dvd drives short lived.

Great case!

Jonathan D., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: None that I can think of.
  • Pros: I bought this back in 2009 and no issues whatsoever. It is solid and very dependable. The amount of internal drives you can add is amazing. Overall I am very happy with the case.
  • Cons: Not must accept where to get more drive trays?? I only have 2. The power button is flaky at times, but not an issue. Too bad they dont make them anymore.

Lots of Room – Easy Install

Umar R., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Price was $84.99 back in 2010 (When purchased)
  • Pros: Case is Solid, sleek, simple design. Lost of Room, tool-less features makes for quick flawless install.
  • Cons: After about a Year of normal use, the Power Button on the Case failed. If it wasn't for a Fail-Switch on my mother board, I probably would've spent countless hours and $$$ trying to find the problem (First guess is typically the MoBo or HDD/SDD).

Good Case

Lawrence P., Newegg

User Review

Lawrence J., Newegg
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Fantastic case. Just take precaution to prevent the dust.
  • Pros: Easy to access, keeps things cool, looks sweet, and just makes things easy. Power button and reset button on case with blue and red indicator lights look good and are well placed. The included fans run silent and the inside of the case is very well organized with extra screws to assist you instal...
  • Cons: It gets a little dustier than I'd like inside the case. I've cleaned the thing out a few times, but it just grabs dust and those fans and opening get filthy. Main concern with this is the graphics card I had initially got it's fan cake with dust as has the CPU fan and heat sink. If it was a littl...

The right case

Victor C., Newegg
3 September 2013
  • Pros: I have owened this case for about 7 years and It still works as it should. All the fans that came with the cas still work and it still keeps my PC cool. I have put together 2 gaming PC's using this same case over the 7 years I have had this case. I'm looking to do a 3rd gaming build and I'm think...
  • Cons: the LED on the front fan is no longer as bright as is used to be but I really don't care about that. I mean come on it is almost 7 years old and that's the only thing I have that is somewhat, remotely, kind of, maybe bad.

Off The Chain Case

Cory D., Newegg
20 June 2013
  • Summary: This is my favorite case of all time. I wish I could still buy this case. Cooler Master has manufacturer an updated version of this case, the COOLER MASTER RC-692A-KKN5 Black Steel body / Plastic + Mesh bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case which is close to the original.
  • Pros: case has all the features I wanted and then some. 1) 5-5.25" bays. This allows me to install a 4 bay 3.5" SATA back plane. This takes up 3 bays. A BD/DVD/CD burner. takes up a bay. and a floppy or other 3.5" device, like the 3.5" USB 3.0 kits a lot of the mobo manufacturers are shipping with thei...

GIANT

Roderick B., Newegg
28 December 2012
  • Summary: I have learned my lesson and will definately pay closer attention to case dimensions, and weight in the future. While this is a great enthusiast case, it was way more than I needed, and made traveling to LAN parties with my PC a nightmare.
  • Pros: Lots of room. A small family could live inside this thing. Easy tool-less install for motherboard
  • Cons: Weighs a ton. This is NOT a LAN Party rig by any means. Does not handle dust well. Side panels are not easy to slide back on the unit. Side fan panel is cumbersome. Power button LED was way too bright.

Good Sturdy Case

Forrest H., Newegg
22 September 2012
  • Summary: Included fans were quiet but did not push much air, nothing bad really and no reason to knock of any points. Accidentally knocked a glass of water off my desk and it poured down into the top exhaust ports, fried a few of my components.
  • Pros: Great quality construction, thick steel that isnt flimsy. Lots of fan mounting options, good placement of front inputs/outputs. Nice and spaceous. The tool-less features are nice and work well unlike a lot of other cased ive used.
  • Cons: It seems over time that my case door has irreparably warped and ive still yet to figure out the reason. A few small rust spots of which i cant figure out the cause, maybe its the humidity. Cable management is a little tough going. The power and reset buttons feel a little cheap and im not a fan o...
