Great case and a long time user. I've used it for many years and with two different motherboards.

Pros: Well constructed. Plenty of cooling options. Tons of space. The smaller things have lasted...i.e. power switch.
Cons: The front case cover—which hides your CD drive among other things— is a recipe for poor ventilation. Removing it is a bit of a pain. Also, the bumpers that support the PSU from vibrating loudly easily slip out.
Pros: This is an awesome starter case for those on a budget. For $90 this is a great buy. This has many options, with tons of different configuration possibilities . The case design has a very cool look to it, almost like a knight when viewed from the front.
Cons: The cable management I wish were a little be better, there should be grommets over the cable management holes. Some of the plastic parts will break off easily if not careful, nothing major, just FYI.
Summary: The bottom dust filter I rarely need to touch, but the front one is important since I clean it about every 2 months. I still need to get a top exhaust fan too. I wish it came with a PCIe extension cable to use the extra expansion slot, but I still have not used the other expansion slots.
Pros: Strong, beautiful case. Excellent cable management. 4 5.25" bays provides lots of possibilities for water cooling, storage boxes, optical drives and fan controllers. Even though it has lots of space, the ability to mount a radiator externally is very appealing. The case fans were quiet.
Cons: Garbage case fans and the front dust filter requires removing both sides and the front panel to remove and clean. Also, the front dust cover may need to be replaced at some point since it frays around the edges.
Summary: Still a great case though, would buy again.
Pros: Same as last time.
Cons: So, since I've owned this case for a longer time and fiddled around with it a bit, I noticed some flaws. First off, to install an optical drive, I took the front bezel off and a magnet got stuck on the case, not the bezel. It's one of the magnets that hold the front panel closed. It turns out tha...
Summary: Overall it's a great case, I really hate it when you have a quality product and skimp on the tiny stuff like the screws though so 1 egg off.
Pros: Spacious and well organized. The SSD bay is nice, especially since it can be put in place of the center HDD bays (really who needs 3 HDD bays on top of another 2 anyway). to open up even more space.
Cons: Cheap screws, the tiniest bit of tightening and the metal started to bend, even got one where there was a chunk of metal in the center so I had to tighten it with a flathead as best I could.
