TOOL-FREE MECHANICAL DESIGN ??? False. Holes do not match up. Tried 2 separate chassis'. Neither worked.

  • Pros: Nice looking case. Plenty of room. Lots of options for ventilation and cooling.
  • Cons: I purchased two different types of conversion brackets to accept a 2.5" SSD. Neither one worked. The holes do not match up. (1) ORICO 3.5'' to 2.5'' SSD/HDD Aluminum Mounting kit Bracket Converter Adapter(3.5 to 1x2.5) Black. This one was extremely tight fit. Quick install (no hassle ?) - NOT ! (...

  • Pros: Other than a big paper weight, it's a junk box...
  • Cons: ZERO, and I mean zero cable management space, also, although it didn't smell like it I think this box is made out of poop...

Decent case for the price

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: All things considered, for 25$ you get what you pay for. The case looks decent from the outside and does everything it needs to.
  • Pros: Decent looking Very cheap Good ventilation
  • Cons: Cable management (or lack there of) There is absolutely no cable managements in this case. You can attempt to zip tie cables around the edges but it is very difficult to make the case look presentable with the large side window. There is no room behind the mobo to run cable. Thin metal and plasti...

Looks Good

JORDAN P., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Summary: I wish I had done more research at the time of buying this case. I would have definitely saved up to buy a better case like the S340
  • Pros: It looks good, and I got it for about $30 on rebate which is great considering it has a windowed side panel. The construction is reasonable. It comes with a blue fan in front which matched my build.
  • Cons: The cable management in this case is horrible. My build that was supposed to look nice ended up looking like a jumbled mess. The cables were everywhere and couldn't be routed anywhere. There are no holes to loop cables in and out of, just a large hole in the right side that spans the entire heigh...

Awesome case with a couple minor complaints

Joseph H., Newegg
26 October 2015
  • Summary: All in all this is a great case, very well built with awesome airflow. I've used several of these for customer builds and haven't received a single complaint to date. I'd highly recommend looking for a PSU offering flat cables (thermaltake is usually what I use), they are MUCH easier to route and...
  • Pros: Aesthetically speaking the case looks amazing with a sleek, relatively minimalist design, awesome side panel window and a good paint job. Airflow is superb, with 1 included 120mm Blue LED front intake fan and room for 5 more (2 top, 1 rear, 1 bottom, 1 side). Screw hole mounting measurements (fan...
  • Cons: The cable management can be a nightmare if you aren't working with a modular PSU (and possibly even then). There is little to no room behind the motherboard tray for cable routing and only a small corner to tuck them away near the HDD cage and front intake fan. The bottom 120mm fan mount becomes ...
