Only slightly disappointed

Jayde D., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall I'm happy, but that blurry window is just a killer for me. I doubt I will go with NZXT next time I purchase a case. I know it's just plastic, but I've had Rosewill cases and Cooler Master cases with side panel windows and this one is hands down the worst I've ever had.
  • Pros: Lots of room. Great overall design. Amazing top end water cooling set up. Nice little fan controller Overall great features
  • Cons: The side window is very unclear. It looks almost like I'm looking through water when I look inside the case. This knocks 2 eggs off because it really messes up the reason that I picked this case instead of the one with the smaller window, I wanted a clear view of my components, not one that is mu...

Good case

Anonymous, Newegg
6 November 2015
  • Summary: The high position of the exhaust fan, in comparison with the intake, seems to encourage heat from the GPU to be pulled upward through the case. I would think that having direct air paths would be more efficient.
  • Pros: Front 200mm fan produces quite a bit of air and has three speed switches. Hard disk bays are removable which helps airflow a lot. PCI-e slot covers have air holes, although I just remove the slot covers. Lots of ports for cabling and water tubes although there could be even more tie-down holders ...
  • Cons: Fan controller is not PWM. It would be better to have the case fans on PWM. The front portion of the top panel has no air holes so a 360mm radiator suffers. It is also tapered so if the fans are in pull there is little space for the first fan on the rad. Even in push there is not a lot of space f...

  • Summary: The tower came with the fans preinstalled and a variety of helpful features but the power button was broke. It's a huge nuisance but I don't want to return it since I've already built the entire computer and found out the power button was broke after I had installed everything.

eh

  • Summary: the cons wouldn't be a big deal, but for the price I expected better
  • Pros: fan controller is nice and lots of cable room, hard drive cages slide out on the same side you plug cables in, radiator support
  • Cons: color matching (on the red version at least) isn't even close, and the side panels just fall off without screws

Bad Customer Service

Mark H., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Summary: Okay price for what you get but, usb 3.0 port breaks easily handle with care and bad customer service. You will most likely have to repair this case if you buy it so keep that in mind.
  • Pros: Good Price, decent product and plenty of features.
  • Cons: Parts are not the best. Usb 3.0 port breaks easily. Customer service is not so great. Took a week and multiple tickets submitted in different ways to get a response. Said replacement parts were on the way in a couple of days. Almost a month went by and nothing until I asked and was told they were...

Very nice case

michael f., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: I would probably but this case again if I knew for sure all the parts would come with it.
  • Pros: The case feels well constructed. Metal did not give much when taking the case apart. The plastic feels solid and well formed. The case was easy to take apart.
  • Cons: My case did not come with any of the additional parts that i should have (screws, zip ties, ect.) I tried to put in a ticket on the NZXT site but it failed every time. Tried using the Reddit page suggested on the back of the manual but no response. So i guess im gonna have to go through the heada...
