Summary: I bought this case because most friends of mine owned the same model. I would have like to seen a new case at this price point.
Pros: It can easily fit most aftermarket cpu coolers. Cover for the power button to help keep my 5 year old nephew from powering down the system. No easy to break off knobs. Honored the rebate.
Cons: The led button tends to stick to either the on or off position. I wish it came plugs for the fire wire and esata ports. The side panels come off like they are hinged but are actually hinged in any way. The thumb screws must be completely removed from the side panels to open the case rather than b...
Summary: I brought this system into Geek Squad as I was getting the blue screen of death whenever I would play online games, later found out that I had to increase my page file (one 320 gig HD solved that issue) and they named it Big Bertha as they had never seen a town so big before, I love this tower,...
Pros: This is the best case I have ever owned, bought it in 2011 and still going strong, yes I know it is a case and they usually don't wear out, but I have 2 dvd drives, 6 hard drives, a Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler, 2 Radeon 1 gig video cards, a sound blaster card and still have tons of room to add mo...
Summary: Love the case but hated having to clean side filters all the time.
Pros: Easy to install hardware easy to use Drive cage only need screw mount HD and slide em in and out are a brezze.
Cons: Cheap filters thats why I had get theses beauties DEMCiflex Cooler Master HAF-X Magnetic Dust / Fan Filter Set - 5 Piece from frozen pc that has done better job then the stock ones. Had 1 stripped out MB standoff (may have been my doing)
Summary: with the amount of airflow you can get with this case it is defiently designed to mitigate high heat loads the only 2 things i would change is the length of the optional air duct that is designed to help cool the vga card[s], as well as redesigning the filters on the fans.
Pros: Built to stand the test of time - the core structre is all steel. the only areas that are made of plastic are where the fans are mounted - the front panel and side window. designed to handle the weight of next gen VGA cards. with the option to use an adjustable VGA card holder also comes with an ...
Cons: the thumb screws are easily striped if your not carefull the filters for the front top and side fans are poorly designed
Summary: When I opened the box some of the slats in the front were popped off. Also when I started to put everything together a lot of the thumbscrews were not aligned with holes. Would've been 5 stars if everything went together without prying panels to get the screws to start.
Pros: Lots of room, big, heavy duty, great cosmetics, can hide almost every cord
Summary: This is already set up for liquid coolin so you don't have to drill any holes. I like the bottom power supply also. Well thought out and well built. Just knock about $50 off price and there are no cons. I get all kinds of ooohh's and aaah's from people that see this case.
Pros: Plenty of room. You can almost climb inside. Superior cable management. I haven't seen a graphics card that won't fit. Enough fans to cool down fire. This is by far the best I havre ever purchased, and I have purchased quite a few. I used to build then sell custom towers.
Cons: Price is the only con I can think of. I have had 2 spine surgeries so weight can be an issue, however I managed to move it as I need to.
Pros: Large Optional wheels Good Airflow Additional Fan Options Front LED has a hardware switch (On/Off)
Cons: The secondary side panel is very close to the frame, meaning you're limited on how many or how large of cables you can route behind the motherboard (It's not any worse than any other case I've worked with, however).
Pros: Everything worked as expected. The case is well build and has an excellent design. I set this up with a liquid cooling solution and the radiator bolted in perfectly (240 mm radiator). Lots of space and will fit even the largest of video cards and power supplies.
Cons: The product could be improved by providing a central fan control system with knobs on the front to finely tune each fan and adjust RPM. My motherboard handles this but it is more difficult to configure and it doesn't adjust the fan RPM in real time so I am unable to tune it so that the fans are a...
