looks good, lots of room, nice front panel

Luke C., Newegg
14 November 2011
  • Summary: Does anyone know what to do with that round ferrite thingy? I'm not sure if it's related, but I reached for a usb thumb drive on the front panel to remove it, and a static charge jumped the gap and the pc locked up on me.
  • Pros: Good looking case with lots of room for hdd's. Front panel pops off from outside for access to drives, etc.
  • Cons: I don't trust the power supply so I'm swapping for an antec 380w earthwatts. The tool-less bays are difficult to secure from one side, you need to remove other case panel which, of course, requires a tool.

usb grounding problem, ps issues

Luke C., Newegg
8 November 2011
  • Summary: What was I thinking? I haven't used a case/ps combo in a while, due to their general suckiness. I guess that still holds true.
  • Pros: Looks good, front cover pops off from outside without removing internal tabs.
  • Cons: After installing win7 pro, I was trying to get some network drivers loaded via usb stick, I touched the thumb drive and a static spark flew and the system blanked out. The system rebooted ok, but several days later the system wouldn't boot up and multiple beeps sounding from the bios. Power suppl...

cheap! too cheap??

Anonymous, Newegg
9 November 2010
  • Summary: Not sure how long the front USB connectors will last, they seem suspect.
  • Pros: cheap box, no problems installing pieces and parts
  • Cons: Power connector in power supply is sloppy and will disconenct power when wiggled. Asked Newegg for a replacement power supply, but they will only ship a complete new box after I ship the old one back. This means I need to take the whole thing apart again, ship and be without a computer for 2 week...

Nice case, but...

Wesley H., Newegg
28 August 2010
  • Pros: Nice looking case made. Good quality materials. Cooler Master has always done well for me in the past.
  • Cons: Only one SATA power cable!!! Every build is going to have a SATA hard drive and a SATA optical. I couldn't finish the build without an adapter which no one in town seems to carry. Ridiculous on the part of Cooler Master.

First Problem

KRISTOPHER B., Newegg
23 May 2010
  • Summary: CHECK THE VOLTAGE SETTING ON THE POWER SUPPLY AS SOON AS YOU GET IT!!!
  • Pros: Use this case a lot when building cheaper computers for people. Nice Design and easy to work in.
  • Cons: I have bought this case for 10 different builds and I have never had a bigger problem than this last purchase. I could not get the hard drive to recognize in the BIOS each time I started the computer up. I would get to 98% each time I tried to install an OS and then it would fail. I figured it wa...

Voltage setting on P/S@ 220V!

Mitchell E., Newegg
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Not sure what's up with the 220V setting on the powersupplies. Up until the last month, they always came set at 110V. Be Careful to check when building.
  • Pros: Nice case design with good airflow. Been using these to build for several months.
  • Cons: Last 2 shipments of these cases had all powersupplies set to 220V. Computer will turn on but not post until we realized they were set incorrectly for standard U.S. Only 1 SATA power connector! Keep expecting to get a new shipment with at least 2, but they continue to ship with a single. Problemat...

For the price....

Casey M., Newegg
29 December 2009
  • Summary: NEWEGG ROCKS
  • Pros: Tool less features are ok, they secure the hardware good and tight. Although i still use screws. Price is spot on
  • Cons: Power supply died the first time trying to post. But Newegg rocks and they sent me a new one no problem. If your not going to have a vid card then you'll be ok but this PSU is not that good. A minimal system with this combo, dont push it too hard.

Case good, Power Supply s!@#$

Paul W., Newegg
19 March 2009
  • Summary: It's a case and power supply for $54 so of course it's light weight and does not compare to my CM 690, but thats expected. The tool less mounts, just like any other not worth trusting to secure a high-end video card.
  • Pros: Inexpensive and decent design. Case is good for the price, your expectations can't be higher than the price.
  • Cons: I have never complained about fans, the movement of air is noisey. Simple enough. But the fan on the provided powersupply, which is a Thermal Master is ridiculous. It annoys me so much I'm going to order another P/S and I built it for someone else.

Dead Power Supply

Benjamin R., Newegg
9 February 2009
  • Pros: Attractive façade that offers ability for high airflow through the case. Customer commented it looked high-tech. I found the drive bay locks to be useful.
  • Cons: Primarily composed of the typical sheet metal you would find on most any value priced case. The power supply included was non functional.
