great case!!

  • Summary: -I bought it because I wanted a case that could fit any radiator on top, I haven't tried any yet, but the H110i is my target which seems to be able to fit. -The two led's on the back are a plus and the switch for them on top is an even "pluser". -The closeable front cover and remove-able drive cages is a nice option.
  • Pros: -Huge (spacious) -Can fit anything inside -Its an eye candy -Easy managing for any amount of cables -A lot of cooling fan slots
  • Cons: These are not really cons that would take anything away from performance but something attention-seeking still: -The right cover panel is loose towards the front of the case and pushes inwards a little bit and makes the "metal" sound when presses against the interior, but it is in place and wont let air escape or anything, just presses inwards and makes the sound when touched. -All of the mobo standoffs except two are bad in that screws do not reach the end and contin...

I absolutely LOVE this case.

  • Summary: Good price for what you get. I couldn't ask for more in a case, and I'm glad I didn't get any other case (After many hours of research. My Build: (This case) with: 1x Asus Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel MB 1x Intel Core I7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4GHZ LGA 1150 2x G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 2400 (PC3 19200) 1x Corsair CSSD 120GB SATA II 1x EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2 GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 FTW 1x ASUS 24X...
  • Pros: It's BIG. It's white with black highlights. Included fans are very quiet. (with air filters) The switchable fan speeds on top of the case, along with the LED's in the back (what a simple yet brilliant idea) Tool-less hdd installation (except for notebook drives) (however, each tray also supports a notebook drive installation) The best feature is the SSD/Notebook drive mount on the side of the motherboard tray with 1 thumbscrew. It's a beautiful case! This wasn't my fi...
  • Cons: It's not flat on top, so no setting anything on top of the case. The tool-less drive installation has these little rubber grommet type things with a steel round insert for the hdd normal screw locations..... these fall out too easily. (Minor flaw) It almost feels wrong to put anything in this section but those are the only things I can think of.

Great Case

Matthew F., Newegg

  • Pros: Great design, well built. One of the best cases I've ever owned. Lots of space... when they say full-tower they mean it. This thing is massive. Nicknamed it the "Stormtrooper". All it needs is an Imperial COG on the side and the transformation to the darkside will be complete.
  • Cons: None yet.

Excellent case

Brent T., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Pros: The case is fantastic. Hard drive sleds make installation/removal of standard and SSD drives effortless. Case is very roomy which allows for very easily installation of motherboard and all other components. Wire are easily hidden in the wire compartment. Also Wire compartment. has many anchor points for clean and efficient wire management. Motherboard panel light and two-speed fan control are also very nice touches. Best of all the Case is beautiful. I put a blue LED ...
  • Cons: None so far, and I've been using it for over a year.

Good case

Simon P., Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Pros: Comes with a lot of installation hardware. Case has a lot of options for additional cooling options - fans at the front, side, back, bottom and top, as well as the potential for water cooling if that's what you are into. There seems to be ample space for larger graphics cards, with the hard drive trays having a variety of configurations. Looks great, and seems to be a very sturdy design. I'm not worried about it getting bumped or damaged.
  • Cons: I don't like the fact that in order to have the pivot fan inside the case you have to leave the 3 drive tray in place, there should be options to mount the pivot fan on the other trays as well. It would be nice to see an ESATA port on top/up front. But the two USB 3.0 should be fine, and I plan on using a NAS so not too bothered.

A Best Case

Fredric S., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Summary: I have built, repaired, upgraded, and trouble shot a great deal of computers over the 33 years that I have been involved with computers. I have not experienced a better case at any price for the usual build.
  • Pros: A Very Best Case in all respects. Well designed and built. Plenty of screws in separate packages according to size. Enough fans to cool interior but many more optional fans can be added.
  • Cons: I did not encounter any cons, a few places that I had to stop and figure out the connections and various options for the drive cages. No cons.

Don't Pass this up

Devon T., Newegg
7 November 2014
  • Pros: Couldn't be happier. I bought mine for about $30 more but with this sale price I am tempted to buy another one in case I want to build another computer for someone. It looks sharp and reminds me of a Starwars Storm Trooper. (I am 60 and was there when the original SW movie hit the movie theaters many years ago so call me nostalgic). No problems everything worked as intended. Lots of room for huge video cards. However I was not able to use the fan holder inside the cas...
  • Cons: Not a con per say but if you have trouble getting the top off.. DO NOT US FORCE. Just go from underneath and push the pins together it will come off.

Love the Case

Ronald R., Newegg
23 October 2014
  • Summary: The overall layout of the case makes it easy to have all your power supply cables go through the back panel and come into the case at the motherboard jumpers.
  • Pros: Lots of available spots for fans. Love the removable hard drive cages. I used an Enermax CPU cooler, I installed the processor before putting the motherboard in. This normally would have not been an issue but since I wanted fans on the top of case CPU fan was in the way.
  • Cons: None I researched this case and others before I bought one. This case will serve me very well.
