Not good.

Marcelo Aliberti, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I had great expectations with this case. I had, now I haven't. Really the case don't look nice, the green color is not the best, the metal side covers are so thin that bend and you need to use the full 6 rear screws to maintain it straight.

Caution when buying extra case fans!

THANH S., Newegg
7 March 2014
  • Summary: Going to try and contact their customer service and see if they can do anything for me. Perhaps It's my own fault for not looking into what fans can properly fit in the case?? I assumed there were levels of standardization with ATX cases??
  • Pros: Lots of room for extra HDDs and SSDs. Great Cable management. Looks awesome! Like a star trek shuttle-craft of sorts. Nice built in fan controller that works great with the pre-installed case fans.
  • Cons: The Built in fan controller still works great, it is too bad however that two 200mm fans (NXZT even) will not properly mount to the case. 1 of 4 of the screw holes actually lines up to the case, no matter how I try to finagle them.

Not happy USB ports broke fan controller dont work

Tanya M., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: Should have kept my haf932 case it was better designed. I may end up putting all my stuff back in the haf932.
  • Pros: Good cable management and looks cool and is fairly quiet
  • Cons: USB ports stopped working and feel broke inside have to wiggle cable to get connected. Fan controllers only half of them work. USB ports on top are hard to get to needs them on the front or side.

less and Less impressed

Jason W., Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I wish if nothing else that the design was more flat, I cant place anything on the computer without it sliding off.. I wasnt thinking about it at the time, I know there is other options.
  • Pros: -lots of space (in all but the back) -Lots of cooling options -Some dust filters -easy to instal cdrom -ports on top, not front -Good, not great cable management
  • Cons: -Took the top shroud off because its angled for no reason and takes up room. I mountered a 200MM fan on top of the case that I could not have otherwise had on there, -There is very little space behind the motherboard, had to smash the wires to get the back door on. -Fan controllers are a joke, li...

Missing some parts

David W., Newegg
12 December 2013

  • Pros: -Beautiful-looking case -Plenty of room for everything you need -Great Cable Management options -Includes fans
  • Cons: -Missing accessories (explained below)

Mostly a waste

Jeremy J., Newegg
9 November 2013
  • Summary: BROKEN One of the top back corners of the case was cracked (which continued a bit along the edge) when I finally opened the box today about 4 months after I got this. Unfortunately, it took me that long to collect all the parts I needed for my new build.
  • Pros: + big case + decent external ports on top + sideways facing HDD bays (easier installation)
  • Cons: - broken on arrival (see Other Thoughts) - cheap, cumbersome holders for drives in 5.25" bays - pesky pins in rubber rings that made installation of HDDs in included trays fail (see Other Thoughts)

Nice Case, proprietary fan standards

Joshua S., Newegg
14 October 2013
  • Summary: If I wanted to get proprietary equipment, I would purchase the one associated with a type of fruit. The case seems great other than falsely advertising the fan dimensions, or at minimum omitting the fact that only certain fans of those dimensions will work, namely NZXT's own fans.
  • Pros: Beautiful case, plenty of space. Easy access, easy to manage cabling.
  • Cons: I've come to find that NZXT purposely designed this case so you have to buy their [NZXT] fans. Both the case and the fans #N82E16835103073 are 200x200x30. Should fit, all screws should align. The case comes with 2 optional fans, 1 side 1 top. The Cooler Master Megaflow 200mm fit neither fan slot....

Hours wasted.

Donna S., Newegg
3 October 2013
  • Pros: Plenty of space, obviously because it's a full tower. It looks really clean. A lot of extra screws provided with this case.
  • Cons: The hard drive bays all seem to be proprietary with (possibly) SeaGate HDD's, because we had to rig the drive bays to accept all three of my, Western Digital, HDD's, we ended up taking out of the bottom right fans because it wouldn't fit with the HDD's in. And the side 200MM fan slot appears to b...

User Review

Daryl O., Newegg
1 August 2012
  • Pros: Great looking case, plenty of room inside, lots of expansion
  • Cons: Fans leds stopped working after 1 day. Front of case had broken middle pin. Case arrived in a box that had been opened and was in terrible shape. It had been in a warehouse for awhile. The box was scraped up, very dirty and dented and had been retaped closed. Definitely was not caused by UPS. I I...
