Cool I suppose

Summary: I know this case is obsolete now, just thought I would voice my opinion. I should also note that I never really did much traveling with this case that would justify the way this thing has fallen apart.
Pros: It looks cool, fit all my components with room to spare, and the tool less drive bays are great.
Cons: The cooling provided with stock fans is lackluster at best. My internal system temps would sit above 120 F at 65 F room temp. I've owned the case for around 4 years now, the legs suspending it all broke off within the past two years, along with the front door.
Summary: Well worth the money. May buy another one some day haha.
Pros: This is a slick, quite, BEAUTIFUL case. The door is magenetic and has a vertical strip light. The temperature sensors are awesome. It feels heavy and made well. I was just completely impressed with this case.
Cons: Not one honestly. Like I said, the case beat my expectation.
Pros: Looks great, very unique compared to others and is relatively cheap especially when compared to more expensive boring looking cases. Has every thing I need, the side facing HD slots are different but overall I like them better then more traditional ones.
Cons: The plastic case cover although pretty is easy to take off, a little too easy, one corner coming off when you barely pull at it and yet is still a bit of a hassle to put back on when your replacing fans or drives. This really isnt that big of a deal however.
Summary: I saw a lot of comments on things like “weak”, “cheap”, or “flimsy”. I find the case to be very sturdy. Any thing will break or bend with the right amount of force. In fact during an abrupt stop in traffic, my mid tower survived a fall from the seat to the floor board completely unharmed.
Pros: Beautiful Case!!!! If you love the pictures, don't miss the real deal. Red glow is a true red. Temperature gauges can be switched to Fahrenheit by switching the jumper on the board behind the display. ( requires screwdriver) Fans are very quiet, and run efficiently. CPU running 100 degrees f afte...
Cons: Well if I have to complain about the minor things... You do have to take the back shield off to get to the insides, but with a latch and a lock I keep my shield off, BAM easy access with great protection. The filter is on the bottom, so you do have to tilt the case to wipe it. But remember if you...
Summary: The case comes with three temperature sensors but don't come with something to attach it to anything
Pros: Pretty Case. The red gives a nice glow and because its red its not overpowering at night. Had space for my 4870, probably not for anything longer then that though. steel
Cons: With my Asus P5q Deluxe the front hd audio connection wasn't long enough and i had to drill a hole under the hdd bay to make it work. The back plastic thingy i had to modify so that the case could be easily open and still have that back plate. Nothing can be removed, as in the hard drive bays and...
Pros: Have had this case for nearly 2 1/2 years now. Still fits new hardware I have installed and has never broke in anyway (buttons, doors, etc.) The LED display on the front shows temperatures for system, one of your hard drives, and your CPU in Celsius. Hooking up the cables to the motherboard is a ...
Cons: The fans that come with the case are not the greatest, so plan on buying new ones right away. but thats pretty typical with any computer case you buy. One of my LED displays came out of the box with the letters Er meaning there is an error, but not worth shipping back just to fix that
Summary: Great case, great price point. Will definitely consider NZXT again.
Pros: Roomy case, easily fit 120 mm Zalman cpu cooler. Great ventilation. Great placement of fans. Handily fit my Corsair 850w beast of a power supply. Study construction. Terrific screw-less design for hard drive and peripheral drives. Allows you to screw in peripherals if the (see below) expansion sl...
Cons: Cords for the audio ports on the front of the case barely stretch across motherboard and barely fit around my GTX470. Also, I believe the back fan (maybe others) can't be plugged in to the motherboard fan controller for adjusted cooling. Front door can only swing ~100 degrees, so it often tries t...
Summary: The metal construction is very sturdy and the ability to lock the case door is a plus. but the minimal ammount of space for the MOBO made assembly a complete PITA. Also the USB ports on the side of the case are in a dangerous spot because within about 3 months of ownership I managed to rip my gaming...
Pros: Nice case with good airflow, none of my temps break 40c except for my graphics card but that's a given. All of the tool less clips for the optical and hard drives are nice, makes assembly easy.
Cons: I only have about 2 inches of clearance between my 8800GTS and the HDD bay, which makes running wires difficult. Also a tight fit between my mother board and the drive bays which makes plugging my SATA cables in next to impossible. the front of the case pops off easily, I was taking my rig to a L...
