Summary: Its still a good case. but I expected higher quality inside parts for a case for this price and especially a manual and not just a parts list.
Pros: Solid construction. Easy tool less HDD, SSD, Optical drive installation. Enough room behind mobo to tuck most cables away even with non modular power supply. lots of room in main chamber for any add in cards and cpu coolers. Doesn't have holes all over the place so it will keep the dust out. Very...
Cons: NO INSTRUCTION MANUAL! I nearly destroyed the front panel trying to remove it to install another front fan. I ended up breaking part of it and had to order a new front panel. You cannot remove the front panel with an optical drive installed. It must be removed to take it off. I learned this the h...
Great sound-proofing, good cable management and features, shoddy front-latch system
4 weeks ago
Summary: Bottom mounted PSU but upside-down mounting means it draws air in from the case and not from the floor - which in my experience means a lot less dust sucked into the PSU. The center motherboard stand-off screw is not a screw - it's a peg.
Pros: Great build quality (except for front latch), good sound-proofing, looks fantastic. Front fan-speed switch seems shoddy (cheap plastic and switch quality), but it works. Good quality screwless drive mounts (easy to attach drives and mount/unmount). No sharp-edges.
Cons: Front panel is plastic and bends, so when you close the panel only the latch your hand is closest to will actually latch - E.G. the top will latch but the bottom will just bend around the latch unless you press right on it. Case fans are only 3-pin so to control fan speed you have to plug them in...
Summary: It's quiet but not quiet enough for my graphics card. GTX 690. It's not bad though. The reason for me deducting two stairs is because I'm pretty sure the power button on it is busted. I have to push it weirdly on one side then the other to get it to boot right.
Summary: Cons: The backside of the mobo could have a smidge more space. The wires fit, and I closed the case myself; but it wasn't "easy". I wish there was a place to store the cover, I remove it for my cpu cooler *H100i GTX* and its awkward to set on my desk. Pros: Fit/Finish are top notch.
Pros: Hard to find a better case for the money after rebate. Feels solid and runs quiet.
Cons: The only real issue is I have to keep the top cover off after I installed the Silverstone TD02-Lite liquid cooler, but that's expected. Taking the cover off does allow a bit more noise to escape, but keeping it on blocks too much airflow and CPU temps get into 50s.
Summary: Got a slight ding in the cover for the back of the case making it a little hard to slide on and secure in place, but overall does not take away from the case. Also would've been nice to have rubber grommets for the wiring holes in the case.
Pros: It is small, yet spacious enough to accommodate my needs. Overall I think this is a great case for the price and the sound deadening definitely works, which the I was going for a silent gaming rig.
Cons: Only real issue is cable management. If you don't have a modular PSU like me, you will be left tons of cables and no place to put them. But since the case doesn't have a window, no one will ever see it so not much of a con.
