Don't put anything you like in this

Ian H., Newegg
28 January 2016
  • Summary: I've put 2 motherboards in this case. First one came out OK when I was replacing it, only 2 of the standoffs came out with it. Right now, I've been wrangling this case for the past 3 hours trying to get the final screw out of a motherboard.
  • Pros: -Holds things in place very well -Looks fairly nice for it's price
  • Cons: -Heats up hardcore -Standoffs will hold motherboard into case -Screws don't come out well

Not what i was expecting

Wajid S., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: I'm not in the financial state to purchase another case so I'm stuck with this case
  • Pros: its affordable and sturdy
  • Cons: The hole on the side panel to let the CPU air out is too high so air gets trapped trying to leave, heating it, the front panel audio and mic jack don't work. I thought I had not plugged it into the motherboard properly but after reading the manual and putting them back, they still don't work. I h...

Came Bent

Darin B., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Other then the bent portion its still a solid case, Just wish QC was more picky to avoid sending damaged good to customers.
  • Pros: Good looking case thats not overly flashy, plenty of room for added cooling.
  • Cons: The bottom area where the power supply came out of the box bent and misshapen. It does not interfere with instillation but it just kinda looks cheap. Not sure what kind of QC NZXT has but this is something i would not have let slip.

not impressed

william G., Newegg
23 July 2015
  • Pros: love the build quality for the price.
  • Cons: SSD mount on the bottom that doesnt fit properly. window would have looked alot better if NZXT took into consideration the hyper 212 evo and added at least an extra 1/4 to width so it wouldn't look so crowded and didn't scratch my window. no excuse why it fits in non window version but no this on...

Awful

Ian T., Newegg
17 June 2015
  • Summary: DO NOT GET THIS PIECE OF TRASH
  • Pros: Easy to take apart
  • Cons: Once apart does not want to go back together Motherboard screw holes in wrong places Literally had to cut part of the back off for my graphics card. The card fit but did not sit properly because the screw holes were off.

Do not buy, Unless...

hugo r., Newegg
26 March 2014
  • Pros: I bought the case for my build, and it was better than expected. The case had enough room for my gtx 780, a small water cooling system, and my Sabertooth MOBO.
  • Cons: The airflow vents smell really BAD. When the fans blow air out, they also blow out the "smell" of the "paint" of the fan vents... It's hard to explain but the smell gets annoying. I spent a couple hours checking all my components and ended up with this. I cut the vents out, leaving the screw hole...

Motherboard shorting out when plugged in.

Robert M. Shivers, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: On the plus side, this case was easy to build in, with enough room in the back to run cables. It is also very nice looking given the price and even muffles noise a bit. On the minus side, the case caused issues for the computer that was built in it.

Mediocre At Best

James Caruso, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I just got this as the case for my first ever computer build. I have to say I was less than impressed with it. I had a difficult time with the top bay for an optical drive, so I had to mount in the second one down, there was NO way for it to go into the drop drive.

I also dislike the slanted front panel and don't understand why they ...

The Miester, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: After purchasing all of my desired computer components I finally came around to building my PC, all was going well until connecting the power switch/lights to the PSU and Motherboard I realised a fault it the case itself. The wire had been 'accidently' pinched in between the front and side panel!
