Pros: Elegant and simple looking. Sturdy. Lots of ventilation (front and back fans, and side air vents).
Cons: Front audio jack is always distorted - I tried using the ferrite ring with no improvement. PCI slots on back are a bit confusing at first, I managed to break some of the clips before figuring it out.
Summary: If your looking for one case to buy this is it.
Pros: I purchased this case 2 1/2 years ago. This is hands down the best case i have ever owned. Been building computers since 1997. Recently ordered new parts for a rebuild and will continue to use this case. Just replacing the power supply with a more powerful one. I love the screwless option. It is ...
Cons: I have nothing bad to say about this case. However since i purchased it newegg has raised the price on it by $15. This is still an awesome case for the money.
Pros: Solid, durable construction and tool-less drive mounting. Plenty of available drive slots.
Cons: Poor fan cabling. Both internal fans are cabled to a Y-adapter making it impossible to connect front and back fan separately to a motherboard that will support more than one without replacing the cabling. Y-Cable only lets you monitor speed of the rear fan. Slightly deeper front-to back than othe...
Summary: Would prefer more 3.5 inch internal drive bays and fewer 5.25 inch external drive bays but I'll be able to make it work.
Pros: Well built and nicely finished. Side panels remove and install easily.
Cons: Cable for connection of front panel audio to motherboard is too short. With a little work the cable can be rerouted through the other side of the case but would prefer that its length match those of the USB and Firewire cables.
Summary: Has been a rock solid choice over many HDDs and a transition into SSDs. Has also managed well first with dual 4890s, then a 5850, a 6870 and most lately a 6950. Front USB ports have always worked great.
Pros: Two thumbscrews each to release the sides, also used thumbscrews for PSU. Able to fit a Sapphire AMD 6950 into it with care. Have run up to 5 HDD's just fine, has decent ventilation though not great. Rounded edges and outward facing drive-bays make this an easy to use case.
Cons: Front fan is hard to maintenance. Wish it came with more rail brackets for HDDs.
Summary: Two thumbscrews to open and close case. Very easy. Case is very sturdy and does not easily flex. Plenty of room. If you need a good case at a reasonable price, look no further. Owned for 7 months. Very happy.
Pros: Nice mid tower. Everything fits fine, including Zalman 9900A CPU cooler. Very quiet. Case fans are barely audible.
Summary: If you're not really into cheesy LEDs and styling that makes your computer look like it's from a bad sci-fi movie, then this case might be for you. It's a simple and solid design that looks great.
Pros: Looks very nice. Nice organization.
Cons: The rear thumb screws are a little hard to screw in because they don't line up just right, but it's not too bad. It should have come with the ferrite ring installed, or provided decent instructions on what to do with it.
