27 December 2013
Summary: This is the first case that I bought because it had everything that I needed. Other than the LED fans this case does not have many extra features. The filters for the 2 front fans and bottom fan spot are nice and the carrying handle has been needed on multiple occasions. The inside is able to fit all of my hardware with lots of extra space for cable management however the harddrive cage is not removable. I would recommend for a first build or a budget build.
Pros: Solid Construction, LED Lights, Black interior, Windowed side, Air filters for fans
Summary: I bought this case hastily and like a dummy: "I didn't like it when I got it." I find the front to be down right ugly. The bottom fan mount is useless because most PSUs will block it entirely and it's just not going to get utilized. It is also worth noting once you install the top 2 120/140 fans the top panel is painful (literally painful) to get off need you access the screws. However, it is a very good case and of course being a mid-tower upgrading is limited.
Pros: - Very Strong, - Inexpensive, - Fits my triple slot 7970, - Carry handle exceptionally helpful (Very sturdy), - Cable management, - Sufficient fan mounts, - Almost tooless, - Middle cage adaptable to fit any length of card (To Date)
Cons: - Heavy weight, - Front panel (Appearance(See Below)), - Bottom Fan mount (See Below), - No 240mm Radiator support
Summary: Best case Ive purchased. Have has Antec Sonata and NZXT cases (and others) in the past. This is the most solidly built case of all of them. All matt black interior. Best screw-less drive mounting system I've seen. Very well laid out, with great cable management and lots of room for large video cards and fans. (my cooler master V8 fan fits in there perfectly) Comes with lots of drive mount clips, lots of extra screws and even black zap straps for cable management.
Pros: Well built, well thought out, great cable management. Ability to shut off case fan led's with button on case
