Fantastic Case

N/A, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Overall this is a well designed box. Even has the silly chassis lighting if that kind of thing turns you on.
  • Pros: Nice pathways to hide wires. Smartly designed chassis.
  • Cons: Not very good directions with the case fan wires. Wasn't immediately obvious how the cover fan was to connect into the harness. Actually would have preferred that fan to be speed controlled also.

Dead Power button

john v., Newegg
4 August 2015
  • Pros: large light and with large upgrade potential. very roomy with lots of fans
  • Cons: power button died after 80 days. have to RMA entire case as a result. one little piece of plastic killing a $1500 build is ridiculous!

Solid case with possibility for cooling issues

Colin H., Newegg
31 July 2015
  • Pros: Provides plenty of room for large GPUs and 280mm water cooler. Back panel access makes modifying a breeze, as well as arranging cables. Included fans provide large amounts of air flow, with the lighting being a nice touch. Sturdy and has withstood many transports over the past 1.5 years.
  • Cons: The bolts to hold the side panel in place can be difficult to latch when you are closing it, but not overly so. The placement of the fans plus the location for a water cooler makes it difficult to maintain positive pressure when the water coolers fans are blowing air out, leading to a large accum...

Great Case

Johnathan D., Newegg
31 July 2015
  • Summary: It may be possible if you're careful and electronic savvy enough to rewire the control, but I don't recommend this.
  • Pros: 1. This case has several openings for fans. 2. Fits large PSUs and Extended ATX motherboards. 3. Is extremely easy to clean. 4. Grommets make organization seamless. 5. Both sides are removeable for easy access. 6. Easy remove Drive trays
  • Cons: 1. The fans that come with the case are not very powerful and are proprietary to the fan switch. If you wish to trade these fans out. The switch would be useless.

Decent case for the price

Sal C., Newegg
23 July 2015
  • Pros: Easy cable management and access to the case - fairly light. Good airflow and ventilation. Priced competitively.
  • Cons: Drive sleds are flimsy low quality plastic and don't stay secured in place. They easily jiggle free. Case doesn't rest flat when laying on its side on a table - it has a wobble due to the design - need to prop it with a book or magazine.

  • Pros: great room for a mid sized case, plenty of expansion room for more fans/hdds etc. removable hdd cages are a big plus for larger gpus. Really liked the white colored fans and the fact they can be turned off.
  • Cons: front case fan controller doesn't work but no biggie. I enjoyed every other feature that I didn't let that take away a egg.

Everything on the case fried.

Imre P., Newegg
20 July 2015
  • Summary: I paid $100 at the time, and it broke in less than a year. I'm not made of money, and I cannot afford to purchase another ~$80 case. Incredibly disappointed in this product.
  • Pros: *Worked wonderfully when it was working. *Nice air flow *Sweet looks
  • Cons: *Everything inside the case fried after average use. This case did not last even a year. I have to open the case up and manually press my mother board in order to turn on the computer itself. The side fans don't work since everything in the case is fried.

  • Summary: Overall the case is really nice. its super easy to mount parts in and run cables through. The included trays for the hard drives are fantastic. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the case fan in the window, the big 200mm one i think is the size, makes a high pitch noise when running.

7 July 2015
  • Summary: I moved the two rear fans up to the top so that my H60 water cooler could mount nicely. I needed a better case with ventilation for my hard drives which were running hot and this did just the job.
  • Pros: Attractive design, cable management, plenty of fans and still quiet.
  • Cons: I thought the cable management was a bit tight, additionally I wasn't able to find where to plug in the power button LED light but I couldn't be bothered to fiddle with that.
