Perfect Budget gaming or Home PC case

Spencer S., Newegg
6 July 2015
  • Summary: This case will do in most applications with plenty of features and good quality control from corsair, it's cons are not really cons for the price and other cases at this tier lack many of its features which are more commonly found in +$100 cases.
  • Pros: This case is fantastic for the average PC builder if your on a budget and here's about 8 good points about this case. 1- Room behind motherboard tray with tie downs for cable management 2-Tooless bays with optional anchor screws for guaranteed drive security. 3-Interesting tooless SSD mounting ov...
  • Cons: there are a few cons with this case but you can't have everything at this price. 1- only the front and PSU has filters not really a big deal as most cases at this price don't have these anyway 2- 2nd front fan requires removal of the drive cage. 3-Semi short allowance on top in case of liquid coo...

Good, simple case

Adam C., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Summary: They didn't have the window version when I bought it at release, so I modded it and put a window on myself, and it turned out really nice. Seems like a good case for all types of mods.
  • Pros: Pros: - simple, clean aesthetic - decent cable mgmt allotment behind mobo tray - ample fan options - decent intake filters
  • Cons: Cons: - lots of plastic for this price point - not a lot of extras for being in the $70-$80 MSRP price point; should include cable mgmt grommets, less plastic, etc...doesn't compete well unless you can get it on sale for under $50, imo

wow. for the money? This is a beauty

Mark D., Newegg
28 June 2015
  • Summary: I'd definitely buy this again.
  • Pros: Price point, steel construction, tool-less drive mounts, great air flow, awesome thumb screws, good cable management with ties... i could just keep going on. I've built a lot of PCs in my day and this case is too good to be true for what you pay for it. Tons of room in this case despite its size....
  • Cons: Power supply at the bottom of the case meant that I needed to stretch out my 8 pin power cable from my seasonic PSU across the front of the board instead of using the cable management system.

Excellent budget case for my i7 build.

Andrew, Amazon
23 June 2015
  • Summary: I cannot complain about this case at all. It looks awesome. I put an Asus Z97-A and an intel i7 inside. I replaced my previous corsair case that only had USB 2.0 ports because I needed 3.0 and do not regret the decision. This thing looks awesome and feels very sturdy.

Solid Value Case

Richard S., Newegg
15 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this to downsize a full tower computer that I wanted to use as a server. Not only did it fit all the components but I had room to spare and better cable management options. I wouldn't hesitate to use this case for future builds.
  • Pros: I really like the details put into this value case like the all black interior, the black thumbscrews, the mounting options for different coolers/fans. This was unexpectedly great for the price I paid for it and I really like the clean look.
  • Cons: The white LED is pretty bright especially in a dark room.

Anonymous, Newegg
12 June 2015
  • Summary: Minor issues, but nice overall.
  • Pros: Came from a Antec 300. Cable management is nice. Plenty of room. Nice case overall.
  • Cons: Power button doesn't have a solid click, and must push in much further than I'm used to. Could use more tie wrap points. 8 pin MB connector from a Corsair CX430m took some convincing to fit though the cable slot at the top, and a 140mm fan may or may not fit with the 8pin cable where it's at righ...

5 stars aren't enough

Virgil B., Newegg
11 June 2015
  • Summary: I have seen comments about the case being flimsy and the doors flexing or giving when you twist the door. I have also seen negative comments about the drive bays being made out of plastic and concerns about how well they will stand up.
  • Pros: The first thing that stands out is the engineering and design that went into this case. For example the 5 1/4 inch drive bays have a simple latch that secure the DVD drives without using any screws. On top of that there are also a couple of holes on both sides of the slot so that you can screw in...
  • Cons: I am not a person that goes in for CLC (water cooling) so I did not install a radiator in this case. However, just from looking at it I would say it would be pretty difficult to install a 240mm cooler in this case because the space at the top is pretty tight. A regular 120mm fan is almost touchin...

Great Starter Case

Riese N., Newegg
10 June 2015
  • Pros: Was part of an enthusiast budget build and it's a fantastic bang for the buck. Has plenty of room for my entire setup, plenty of room for expansion as well. The two fans are nice and the case has good air flow.
  • Cons: Had to cover up the top grill because I feel dust will get in through it the easiest, though I don't know much about dust.

Beautiful Case

Antonio B., Newegg
10 June 2015
  • Summary: At it's low cost, I honestly expected a 'cheap' made case. That is *not* the case with this case. I was spectacularly impressed with the design of this case. First, the interior is all black (which you don't see on cheaper cases), making cable management pretty simple.
  • Pros: - Price - Space inside - Premounted front fans - Tool-free design - Cable management - All BLACK interior
  • Cons: - Completely misses a screw standoff for motherboards
