Really a good case

Summary: I love this case because of its compact size and price. Also if your not using an optical drive, it blends in nicely with my furniture. I use this as a living room PC and people who come and visit can never tell its a PC unless they notice the bright blue light it emits from the power button. Can't get any better for the price.
Awesome case very compact and looks good and is light weight due to its Aluminum design

Summary: This case is small however it was able to fit my 7870 XT with Boost, and if in the future i wanted to expand to 2 graphics cards I could. Also case has a filter so it reduces the dust by a lot that is a big one up in my book. I love this case. It was recommended to me by someone, and I can see why. I would recommend it to everyone.
Summary: This case is very nice, build went together perfectly smooth, powered it on and it is extremely quiet. Running a cx430 psu, looks great in it and is a great combo for how quiet the case fan is. The front grate does seem pretty flimsy but hey for the price, just be careful when handling it and you'll be fine, how often do you move your pc around anyways. Highly recommend, my only regret is I only bought one since great cases are hide to find especially for a great price.
Summary: Product was in great condition and shipped right on time with all the screws listed in the description. This is a sleet looking case that is easy to take apart and work with. This case is perfect for my gaming pc build. Again, a 5/5. Well done.
Summary: This is the best cheap case I have had the pleasure to work with and I've worked with quite a few. The design of cheap cases has always been wanting. They typically didn't feature large enough fans, good looks, or smart engineering. This case is nicely designed and looks good. The case is made of very light gauge metal so it is a little bit flimsy, but this is expected in an inexpensive case so I will not fault it for that.
Summary: Initially I was planning to get a smaller case, but then decided to get this one instead. I am using a BIOSTAR microATX board, so there is plenty of room to work with. I only replaced the front 120mm fan with an Enermax Magma, and add an Arctic Cooling AF9 92mm fan to pull air in the back. CPU fan is set to quiet mode so the whole box is very quiet.
Summary: I was looking for a simple, stylish case and this worked perfectly. admittedly, it does feel a little cheap. but it does the job and looks great. This is my first Fractal case but I am overall, very satisfied with the purchase. this is for a small budget build. picked up an AMD A6-3650 and an MSI A55M-P33 on a newegg shellshocker for $95, couldn't pass it up.
Summary: I made an APU build with this case and it makes for an awesome small form computer. Getting the motherboard in was a bit of a pain, but you'll know for sure your mobo is secure. Comes with it's own dust filter. Getting the front panel off for the first time is difficult too, but subsequent openings are easier. You can move the front panel fan to the side, I added a white LED fan to the front and it looks beautiful when powered on.
