Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Pros: * Nice looking * Big case to fit all the components you want
  • Cons: * If you want to use the top 5.25 bay, it will take a lot, I have to split all the cables coming from the top of the case in half and zip tie them to the roof, even with that there was almost no clearance because of the hard drive dock on the top of the case, I was able to fit my DVD drive in the top bay but it is way too tight because of pressing against the hard drive bay. Took more effort than any sane person should really put into trying to use just one 5.25 bay. ...

Sexy Case

Christopher P., Newegg
26 November 2013
  • Summary: I would use this case for extreme liquid cooling, but that's just me.
  • Pros: Case is gorgeous, has lots of slots for hard drives and optical drives, and has plenty of room for a good gaming case. The 4-way fan controller is nice, not to mention the slot for external drives to be straight connected to the computer. I got it for a very good price and I recommend it.
  • Cons: Not as large as some other full tower cases, I think. An H100 liquid cooler will fit, but anything larger than that won't. But that's it really.

Awesome case!

Benjamin B., Newegg
13 November 2013
  • Pros: This a very sturdy case with plenty of drive bays and room! Ample fan ports and screens to prevent dust from entering. Expansion slot blanks are extremely durable, not the cheap aluminum ones that bend.
  • Cons: Missing two holes for an ATX motherboard but enough to hold the board in place securely. Couldn't get the fan controls to adjust the speed, not sure why.

Lots of Room

Joseph C., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Pros: Nice case, well constructed, room for expansion of peripherals.
  • Cons: Front audio and USB on top of unit, same with external drive socket. Dilemma is if you have a desk, the top connections are a problem. Flexibility of built in cables is limited, puts pressure on MB USB Connection.

Mixed Feelings

Kevin C., Newegg
26 March 2013
  • Summary: I don't think I could go as far to say this is a bad case. It looks great. It has great features and quality for the money. It just has some flaws. Probably my biggest issues are: #1 5.25" tool-less is terrible #2 The fans on the top are too close to the motherboard In all honesty I would probably not but it again but I don't really regret buying it this one time. Side note: Get a LED illuminated 140mm fan for the window side.
  • Pros: The case looks great. USB 3.0 with the internal connecter (sadly my 600T corsair cases do not have this) My girlfriend loves it (it is her case and she picked it out) Plenty of spots for 120mm fans (6 or 5+1 140mm) Filters nearly everywhere. A lot of features for the money. Most of the fan spots have snap-in adapters for the fans. Whole front of the case comes off ( I really like this for cleaning and it provides easy access to the filters. The filter on the window si...
  • Cons: OK... here we go. Cable management: The mass of cables that comes in the case is insane. It was very difficult to clean up the cables. The back panel does allow a good bit of space but it lacks areas to zip-tie or velcro strap cables down. Features: The fan controller works okay. The Tool-Less design is terrible. (for the 5.25" bays) The front connections/features are great but cost you the top 5.25" The stock fans a not as quiet as I would like. Now the big issue. Th...

Good Case

Barry B., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: This case had everything I was looking for and more. A solid 4/5 eggs ( One egg off due to the fragile nature of the plastic components).
  • Pros: This case has many features in which I was looking for: - SATA hot swap bay - Can house many fans - No screw, no tools Hard Drive and ODD bays - Fan control - USB 3 ports - Hard Drive bays face outward rather than inward - Some motherboard mounting holes are preconstructed - Has markings to inform whether the mounting holes are for ATX or Micro ATX - Very nice looking case - Power supply mounts on the bottom
  • Cons: This case has many plastic components, specifically the top and front platings which are very fragile. I had to RMA the first case I ordered as these two components were severly damaged (Newegg was awesome and got me a new case within the week).

  • Pros: great case
  • Cons: If you have a 2.5" bay ether buy some white paint and sand paper or get a new case cause the bay cover is uglyy does not match, its not even mesh, its plain black and a weird texture. luckily i'm very good at painting :)

amazing case

Clay V., Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Summary: free $15 fans so the case is really 70 bucks :)
  • Pros: white, sharp, and built in fan controller. it fits a 7870 double d very easily with 4-5" spare room. all in all a good case for $100 and mine does not make a rattling noise so don't be wary.
  • Cons: docked one egg for wire management even with full modular theres no spots for zip ties on back of door verry cluttered,

Review Update

Shawn S., Newegg
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Apparently I have two previous reviews on here, I didn't think the first one went through. My apologies for a double post. Hopefully this update helps. If you're having a noise issue just check every screw to make sure everything is 100% tightened. Otherwise it can be noisy. Also, as of this writing it appears they are selling the white version again.
  • Pros: I found the culprit of the vibration and buzzing I was having. I checked every screw in the case, and the screws holding the metal frame of the hard drive bay to the chassis weren't tightened all the way (they weren't loose, but not completely tight). After tightening those two screws it seems to have fixed it for now and it's sitting on my Antec cart with little to no vibration. Because of this I'm bumping my review up to 4. If it starts up again, I'll check it over ...
  • Cons: Still minus 1 for the fan controller not adjusting both groups at the same time or having any sort of readout as I had already mentioned in the previous review. Now that I solved my noise issue however, I don't regret purchasing the case.
