  • Pros: great looks and size.
  • Cons: I couldnt install my 2.5inch SSDs in the hard drive bay so i put them in the 3.5inch location. It had a really funky smell when it first came but it aired out after a few months.

Some flaws that can be overlooked.

Andrew K., Newegg
16 August 2013
  • Pros: Great airflow for a smaller form factor case. Everything is painted a nice, black finish.
  • Cons: Note; - That the front panel dust filter is several centimeters away from the intake fan so it doesn't really filter any dust. - The integrated fan controller makes a buzzing sound which is only audible when your ears are right next to the case. Adjusting the fan speed may change this. - If you w...

Amazing

M N., Newegg
1 June 2013
  • Summary: A bit bigger than it needed to be for me, but thats my own fault.
  • Pros: Good Airflow Roomy Great cable management space
  • Cons: Water cooling hose just barely fit with by my huge graphics card, and the drive bays at the top are rivoted in, making annoying to get out so it could work. -1 egg for that.

Good Case

william r., Newegg
15 May 2013
  • Summary: For the price it’s a very good case
  • Pros: I like this case it was an upgrade to the liquid cooling system that prompted me to buy this case The case has lots of air flow and is made of steal. One big plus for me was the bottom PSU mount. It makes your cable management much easier. With the ½ ID tubing in the case I was kind of worried ab...
  • Cons: The front audio header plug was DOA, I played with it for about 30 min trying to fix it before I just stopped caring. One of my biggest complaints with all case manufacturers is that they never clearly mark the pin trim out lines clearly. So here on this case the positive is in the top position w...

Awesome LAN case

Egbert R., Newegg
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Does not come with rear exaust fan, looks as if only 80mm fans can be mounted in that spot, doesn't really matter as my CM Hyper 212+ heatsink has dual fans blowing air from the bottom of the case up to the top exaust fan now. Only room for two hard drives in the bottom tray.
  • Pros: Good small case that'll fit a rather large graphics card and CPU heatsink. Although I've only had a few graphics cards in this case I've never seemed to have any problems with room. Nvidia GTX 260 fits no problem. AMD HD 6970 will fit without issue. If you have a mATX SLI/Crossfire motherboard th...
  • Cons: You're going to want a Modular Power supply. My Corsair 750w isn't modular, and it's just down right painful to make it fit good. The extra cable laying in the bottom of the case doesn't look to pretty either. Not really the fault of the case, it's just a big power supply for a small case, with t...

  • Summary: built my m-itx LAN rig in it keeps it cool as a clam and the handle though a bit weak seeming if you add lock nuts to the underside is awesome
  • Pros: leds and fan controller at this price point front panel esata (i like esata) good LAN case
  • Cons: could have had more room for cable management or evern cutouts

Acceptable

Donald H., Newegg
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Minor things cost this 5 egg case an egg.
  • Pros: It was a case, most of the features worked without any hassle or a second thought. Plenty of cable management ties and options
  • Cons: The screws for the handle didn't fit and I had to run to ace hardware. For the money toss in a package of zip ties.

Great case, modular PSU required

Oliver M., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: I definitely love this case. The only real flaw was my own doing and is easily fixed if I were to get another PSU. But it is worth noting that it's almost a must if you want to do any decent cable management.
  • Pros: The case looks fantastic, it's a really agressive design. It comes with a couple of fans installed already, and has room for plenty more. The handle is a nice touch, and given I built my machine specifically for portability it is appreciated. The fact that they include a lot of hardware to make i...
  • Cons: Cable management nightmare. Granted there is a nice bulge in the back for storing some wires, but I made the mistake of not buying a modular PSU. Between the many cables that are already in the case, and then the PSU wires, it's difficult to figure out where to cram everything. Also the external ...

Decent Small Case

Chue X., Newegg
12 December 2012
  • Summary: Not really a con but if you want to choose this case as part of your build, just be aware of the space limitation :D Of course this is expected from a micro atx form factor case.
  • Pros: Small case perfect for LAN party or someone who travel a lot with their PC besides a laptop. Overall material and feature are awesome. Love the case and its features. Beautiful case with lots of airflow.
  • Cons: 1. Front portion of the case where the optical drive is facing, comes off easily. 2. Comes with only two fan (but that's ok I was planning to get my custom fans installed anyways) 3. The four bolts that are meant to hold the handle is a joke. Don't use them unless you are planning to use differen...

Good case, but with flaws

William B., Newegg
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I know these issues might make it sound bad, but these are only minor flaws in my case. I wanted to detail them so some of the design choices might not surprise the next person. Overall, it's a good case, but probably not for the first time builder.
  • Pros: I bought this & installed an Intel DQ77MK motherboard and a Corsair CX430 power supply. I like the case design, although it has some flaws. I'll mention the flaws below, but overall I enjoy the case design & like how I was able to keep it a clean layout.
  • Cons: The way the metal is tapped for the thumbscrews on the expansion slots is poor, and the thumbscrews are very hard to turn without a screwdriver. The fans it comes with have very stiff & cheap wiring, but the fans are fairly quiet. Since they were on sale at NewEgg, I did buy COUGAR CF-V12HP PWM f...
