Great Starter Case

Bradley E., Newegg
9 January 2016
  • Summary: Highly recommend.
  • Pros: This case is everything you could ask for in a starter tower. There are six hard drive bays split into one bay, two bay, and three bay segments. Each can be mixed in any order. Plenty of room and fans for a low heat build. You still have room to add many more fans if you would like to. You can ge...
  • Cons: Had one drive tray not work and actually fell apart but I only needed three of the six anyways so not a huge issue to me personally.

Huge and nicely made case with lots of features. Highly recommend.

Ryan W., Newegg
7 January 2016
  • Summary: Yes, highly recommended. It's not a LED strobe factory which helps when playing games in the dark. It's not a fancy case you would put in a beauty contest, but it looks good. Overall it's a great case with a lot of features but it's just what I need to hold my equipment and stay
  • Pros: - Lot of room for components. - Lot of "behind the board wall" space for keep cable slack. Nice and hidden wiring layout. - Removable slide in filters all over the thing. - Very breathable perforations, but case still feels like a tank. - Removable 1-,2-, & 3-drive bays which can be customized. A...
  • Cons: - The +P/-P leads didn't make sense, but this could have been the MSI x97 Gaming 5's fault. (figured out w/Google) - The 2.5/3.5" drive bay trays require the backside of the case be removed, HOWEVER this is good since it keeps the wires stowed away in the back of the machine. So at first I was mi...

Pretty good case

Ian S., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Pros: Plenty of room, good packaging, highly customizable, great radiator support, and great build quality
  • Cons: Not sure if it's just my case but I need pliers to get the right side pins holding the front panel loose. If you have fat fingers good luck getting your hands in there at all. Fan splitter runs at 100% with included molex to 3 pin connector. If you want PWM control you'll need to get a separate a...

Roomy and well-designed

Andrew M., Newegg
24 December 2015
  • Summary: I like this case a lot. Having the cables all accessible from one side and the motherboard and related parts on the other, with a lot of tie points for cable ties, makes cable routing and dressing very easy.
  • Pros: - Large, with plenty of space for the largest coolers and several radiator mounting options if you're using a water cooler. - Designed very well - all the cable routing is accessed by removing the right side (viewed looking at the front) panel which keeps keeps cables from blocking airflow - Plen...
  • Cons: - A filter screen at the top would have been a good addition to help keep dust from falling into the case when powered down. - A few more front panel USB ports would have been good. Two ports are not enough these days, but at least they're 3.0 ports. I got a USB add on module that goes in one of ...

great size and great value

Sam L., Newegg
1 December 2015
  • Summary: really great case for the price. large enough to fit everything and the only complaints I have are really more like inconveniences. I'll be loading this thing up with fans soon enough so I have that nice blue LED glow I love, though if anyone looking to buy this doesn't like their computer to be too...
  • Pros: great size and great layout inside. very roomy and excellent cable management. the area in the back where all the fans plug in is great for keeping cables out of the way, but the fans I took out of my old computer have a different type of plug, so I'm not getting as much use out of that as I coul...
  • Cons: while it does make for more convenient addition and removal of hard drives, having to open the right panel to get to that area rather than the left is frustrating because getting the panel screws back in takes forever. if I still had a dremel I'd make the holes on the panel a bit bigger so they a...

Great case!

ILION I., Newegg
30 November 2015
  • Summary: My build: Captain 360, i5-4670k, Asrock z97 anniversary, Sapphire R9 390, 650W supply. Everything fits and air flow is great.
  • Pros: Very spacious! Easily fits a 360 liquid cooler and sapphire R9 390 which is a big card. I also like the finish but it can be easily scratched. Cable management is also good, which is expected of a full size case. Nothing beats it for the price.
  • Cons: None, unless you're very picky.

First Time Build

Jacob M., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Summary: If you sleep with the same room as your PC if you don't cover up the top you will get polka dots of light on the ceiling from the grate on the top.
  • Pros: Perfect case. Nice and sturdy and good cooling
  • Cons: None i can think of.
