Great Case

Peter L., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Pros: Plenty of Room for cabling, board and Graphics cards
  • Cons: Take the plastic off the window as soon as you receive it in case it needs to be returned. Case came with cracked side window which I only noticed after installing all my components and then removed the protective plastic covering on the window. Contacted Enermax who wanted to charge me $8 to RMA...

Very nice case

Bernard D., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I've built several PCs over the years although I haven't build one from the case up for a few years. You know you're getting old when it's time to teach your son how to build one.
  • Pros: - Plenty of space to work in - Comes with all needed accessories (cable wraps, screws, standoffs) - Default 3 fans included - Looks nice - Removable middle drive cage - Flexible position SSD cage (can be mounted inside the removable drive cage or on bottom of case - Convenient media panel on top ...
  • Cons: Not much negative here. Hunting for nits, I'd list these: - The default installed standoffs will work with a variety of boards, but with the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z97 we used, the side of the board closest to the front of the case didn't have many standoffs. Really a minor issue that caused no probl...

Big, tough, and looks good!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The upper console power indicator will shine right in your eyes if you keep the computer below eye level. Not a con, but it is a bit annoying. Wish it had been installed facing forward rather than up. Not certain what's up with the cut-out in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Pros: I love this box :) The expanded spaces to either side make installing large or unwieldy components easy ( or even possible). The extra room makes cable management far better than most other cases that I've had in the past. The extra space also improves air circulation, and my current build is one...
  • Cons: There is no way to install 12 fans, despite the specifications listed on this page. Perhaps if you could cluster 85's... but there are no installation slots for those, only 120's and up. Not a con per se, but don't be misled.

Good case

Adam K., Newegg
27 November 2015
  • Summary: Rear fan not LED. Quick swap out with a LED fan no biggie. As said in other reviews... The blue power LED is bright as hell! Small square of electrical tape fixed it.
  • Pros: Great case with plenty of room and good cable management. Some say the 240mm dual liquid cooler wont fit in the top but I got the Enermax dual cooler up there. It wont fit exactly in specified holes but will fit. Have the MSI 990FXA Gaming board in there with the liquid cooler in the top.
  • Cons: Large liquid coolers take some finagling to fit inn the top of the case but not to big a deal. Side window is tinted so some interior lighting is needed to show off your work.

Pretty good budget case

Joshua V., Newegg
1 November 2015
  • Summary: Pretty good budget case that has served me well for over a year. I have done some builds on more expensive cases and you can tell the difference in quality. But for the price this has served its purpose well.
  • Pros: Solidly built, good looking, plenty of room for cooling, decent amount of room for wire management, durable, build in filters, side panels come off with thumb screws, USB 3, built in fans are really quiet.
  • Cons: Lacking a little bit of room behind the motherboard for wires, I have a hard time closing my case with a bunch of extra wires shoved back there. Filters are a little difficult to put back on and are a little fragile. The blue power light on the front panel is so bright. Like way too bright. And i...

Great bang for the buck

Brian W., Newegg

  • Summary: My Build: ENERMAX Ostrog GT ECA3280A-BR Black / Red Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case CORSAIR CX series CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan Intel Core...
  • Pros: Low Cost Easy Installation Superb Cable Management This was my first computer build, and i selected this case based on price and overall good reviews of this product, also fit in well with the red theme i had going on. My initial reaction was the size of this case, it's quite large, which is a go...
  • Cons: The blue LED power light at the top (to quote another review below me) "burns with the light of 1000 suns", which is extremely accurate. Man is this thing bright. The smoke tinted window is also a little dark. I would prefer it to be lighter

Good choice

Andrew M., Newegg
28 July 2015
  • Summary: It seems like a small thing but really the one thing I don't like about this case is the power led on the front panel. It shines with the light of a thousand suns, and since the case pokes out from under the desk a little, it's always right there in my field of view.
  • Pros: It's big. Lots of room for everything, including space behind the motherboard for the extra power cables. Fans are pretty quiet, and I like the dedicated on/off switch for the leds. You can remove the middle drive cage for longer video cards. I did, though it wasn't actually necessary, there was ...
  • Cons: A little tricky to get all the cables to reach, especially motherboard power connectors. The blue power led on the front is ridiculously bright.

Awesome case

Daniel N., Newegg
25 March 2015
  • Summary: The thing I like most about the case is that if your heatsink fan blows up, there are fans that can carry that air out. Same if it blows back.
  • Pros: Roomy, air circulation, good-looking, cable management options.
  • Cons: The only thing I struggled with is the front panel. The little knob-ish things toward the top are murder to get loose. I'll never have to again, though haha.

Third Build got this case

Barb H., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: There is a blue version of this that my GF is buying for her rig and I must say that both red and blue are quite stunning!
  • Pros: I haven't built a computer in a few years now, and honestly my old PC's are so far out of date I just decided to make a new one. I bought this case because well its mostly steel, I wanted something heavy, something sturdy and this case is exactly that. Lets get into what I think of it! HUGE! It h...
  • Cons: My only con would be the fact that I need to remove a lot to get to the section of the case to pop out for a disk drive, that's really my only complaint!

Great Case!

JAMIE O., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Summary: The window is smoked. I initially saw this as a bad thing but it actually worked out pretty well. It does a good job of toning down the LEDs in the fans. I strongly recommend this case over the 'base' Ostrog case. The included fans and improved cable management are totally worth it..
  • Pros: Lots of 'back of the motherboard' space for cable management. I installed a non-modular power supply and had no problem hiding the extra cables neatly on the back side of the motherboard. The case has real vented PCI slot blanks (vs punch outs on lower end cases). If the light up fans aren't your...
  • Cons: The 2.5" drive bracket is nothing fancy, pretty much an up-side-down U shaped bracket that screws on from under the case. It just seemed kind of cheesy where pretty much everything else on the case was done nice. The sides of the case feel cheap / thin / light weight vs my Antec cases but it in n...
