User Review

Philippe C., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Pros: Best case I have owned so far, quality pricing ratio is excellent.
  • Cons: Case nut screws can be hard to remove and re-install. Only 3 fans included, it could use a 4th fan considering the size of the case.

love it

Melissa M., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: Aesthetics aren't the top priority for a computer case but they do help. Love the plain face of this case. Tall, black, smooth. I was initially drawn to this case because it resembles the monolith from 2001 space odyssey. Not sure if anyone else had this problem but i know i did.
  • Pros: -huge -strong/ high quality feel -usb 3.0 near front of case -all the internal bays you would ever need -wonderful cable management -the soundproof panels are a bonus
  • Cons: -heavy -could be considered "too big" see other thoughts

Good Purchase

  • Pros: Built in fans are super quiet, keeps everything cool, easy case to build in, great first case
  • Cons: The side panel thumb screws don't line up perfectly on my case so it is a little hard to unscrew them by hand

Heavy

Terry P., Newegg
12 April 2015
  • Summary: The only other note I will make is, you likely will need long sata cables. I had to change my short ones because of where the hook ups were at on my mother board and just because the case was so large.
  • Pros: More room than you would actually believe. I consider this a pro, some may consider this a con, but the case is very heavy. I like this because there is no chance of it getting knocked over by anything (such as little kids). If you are a little person you might consider a lighter case, after you ...

Fantastic case

Jeffrey F., Newegg
7 April 2015
  • Summary: Worth every penny!
  • Pros: In 25 years of building computers, this is hands-down the best tower-style computer case I have ever used. Tons of space, tons of ventilation options, built like a bank vault.
  • Cons: Absolutely none if you are aware that it is BIG and HEAVY.

Best case I've owned, excellent support!

Jesse H., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: Amazing support!!! Sent me a replacement front audio port board (no questions asked). Long, short of it - I jumped up between rounds for a drink, tripped over headphones cable, breaking the internal front headphone jack.
  • Pros: Spacious, quiet, versatile, extremely easy to build with. Cable management allows for exceptional airflow.
  • Cons: Non reversible door. Not a game breaker for me, but would have been a nice (and seemingly easy to implement) option.

Great sturdy case that looks very sleek and professional.

  • Summary: Very sleek and professional looking. It is quite a heavy and large tower, but provides ample room for mobo, video card(s), cpu cooling system, ram, optical drives and hard drives.

great case

  • Summary: Best computer case i've ever had. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Very heavy too. Would deter robbers from taking your computer because it's just wait too heavy for them to run off with.

Big and silent

Doug J., Newegg
8 January 2015
  • Pros: This case was a blast to work with. I haven't built a gaming/work rig in almost 10 years and my things have changed as far as cable management goes. This case has an awesome section in the back to route as many cables as you want without your case looking like a mess. Another huge plus is how sil...
  • Cons: None really. There is a very tiny chip in the back where the paint was knocked off but that's not the case's fault.
