Great, not perfect

Theodore P., Newegg
2 March 2011
  • Summary: I know it's discontinued now, but had this case two years now and wouldn't replace or trade it for anything!
  • Pros: Apple-ish style. Definitely out of the ordinary Awesome proc circulation for cooling. 4 fan spots for max circulation.
  • Cons: My new blu-ray drive doesn't work with the button :( Disk is loud at times, and if you open the drive and drop a disk in there, it's a pain to get out.

great case

Paul T., Newegg
20 February 2011
  • Summary: its pretty girly.
  • Pros: This case gets alot of attention. Everyone thinks its so cool how the cd drive opens vertically. I haven't had any cds fall in the drive or anything. It works great for me. This case is virtually silent with 2 Rosewill RFX-80 80mm Case Fans in the back and a stock intel cpu cooler. This case also...
  • Cons: The case has the punch out type of pci covers in the back of the case.

Cool and cool looking

Darren J., Newegg
28 January 2010
  • Summary: I have this case housing a PhenomII 550 OC to 3.7 (with stock cooling) and an HD4850 1gb with only 2 case fans (one in the back & one in the bottom). the CPU idles at 35C and never breaks 50C under load. The GPU idles aroud 40C and Never Breaks 55C.
  • Pros: Small length, fits in my computer desk with room to spare, vertical drive & led light are a nice touch. Plenty of room for large video cards. Comes with plenty of hardware. You only need the sticky tabs for your optical drive if it is very old.
  • Cons: Only one optical drive bay (But you can use external drives with a good motherboard with external SATA connections).

HOT

Anonymous, Newegg
30 November 2009
  • Summary: even though the airflow is not that great, it was my bad because i guess sticking a phenom II and a 9800GTX+ card in a case this small wasnt the best idea. im giving this case 5 eggs because it there wasnt anything wron with the case, it was my stupidity that anded me into melting my card and almost...
  • Pros: This case is a very very very good looking case. Real eye catcher, and its short so it fit into my tv stand perfectly.
  • Cons: HOT!!! dont use this case if your planning on using 24/7. it has really bad airflow, had it on letting my little cousin play The Sims 3, and i smelt burning plastic, it was my video card. bought the Antec three Hundred, everything is all good now.

Awesome Media PC Case

John K., Newegg
5 October 2009
  • Summary: The vertical DVD mounting is unusual but my Lite-On BD Drive doesn't seem to mind at all. I gave 5 stars because I have no issue with the drive. You might want to try your drive sideways to see if there might be a problem before purchasing.
  • Pros: This case has an unusually shallow depth, just what I was looking for. Despite it's small size the interior is really roomy with lots of clearance over the motherboard. Other small cases I've dealt with usually have clearance and cable clutter issues, in this design gravity isn't pulling the cabl...
  • Cons: Only 2 usb ports on the top panel.

Great LAN Party Box

Kimberly P., Newegg
30 September 2009
  • Summary: I have a Asus Dark Knight HD4870 with 1g of ddr 5 onboard. I have three fans installed because of how hot this card runs. This case has very good airflow and runs very cool. The card fits well with plenty of room to spare for both power connections.
  • Pros: Great for LAN parties. Love how compact it is! Great airflow. Case has only one removable side panel (very solid case).
  • Cons: Only room for one optical drive. Big video cards will fit, but some cables will drap on the side of the video card.

Pretty good.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: If you use full ATX, you might want to consider getting a bigger case.
  • Pros: Cool design, awesome placement of dvd drive, easy to install components.
  • Cons: Only con I have is that my power supply has alot of cords, and there is nowhere to put them when I have a full ATX motherboard installed in it. Not the products fault though.

Awesome Case

Devin O., Newegg
22 September 2009
  • Summary: Absolutely amazing case for $30. Would and will buy again. HOLDS even the most colossal graphics cards! I used a Mini-atx board, and they were missing 1 hole for the bottom right of the board, but the other screws nearby make up for it.
  • Pros: -Extremely well designed. Everything worked as advertised. -Rolled edges -3 80mm fan ports -Removable hard drive bay was a nice touch -Accent lights are pretty but not obnoxious -Comes with loads of screws -Tons of space inside the case
  • Cons: -Doesn't hold more than one optical drive -Doesn't hold more than 2 hard drives -Front panel USB/Audio is a little wobbly when plugging in -Top panel metal has a little bit of a wobble in it -Plastic-covered thumb screws for door (kinda nice though)
