Decent case with some qc issues

David b., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: Despite the cons, I do like the case. It has great airflow capability for non-watercooled systems. Quite roomy for a mid tower, and plenty of places to stick aftermarket fans.
  • Pros: Decently sized interior, easy cable management, 5 fans pre-installed, well ventilated.
  • Cons: Metal grill on top of case is slightly warped, front I/O wires hang down and make it impossible to install drive into first slot. Some of the screws are a real pain. Case is almost TOO ventilated. Back panel is not recessed so cable management may get tricky. 1 fan died within a week.

Tight width

Charles M., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Enclose SATA cables, power & data, with "L" or off-set connectors. Or at least put in a disclaimer warning customers that they might have problems with straight connectors. Also, either install a slim fan on both covers or tell customers they have to buy slim fans for the cover. (you'll get some negative feedback on that since slim fans are 3-5+ times the cost.
  • Pros: This is my second build. First one I used an Antec 900. Great case but wiring was a little cramped; thought I'd try one that was a little larger. The Blackhawk does give more room for the wires; especially if you remove any unneeded 3.5" bays (which is easy to do). Also it theoretically (see cons) comes with 5-120 mm case fans and has room for 4 additional fans.
  • Cons: Someone from Newegg needs to check and see if your recommended combos actually work. One had the Blackhawk with (among other things) a Cool Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler. With the large cooler and it's 120 mm fan installed you can't close the cover; the main cover fan MUST be removed. Don't bother trying to re-install it on the cover behind the motherboard; a regular fan won't fit there either. Also, the way the 3.5" drives are mounted you had better have cables with of...

Pretty case, works well

Sarah S., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: I have a cat and it keeps all the fur outside and clean stuff inside. The fans that came inside work well and can go pretty fast for overclocking.
  • Cons: The front panel comes off - maybe I should have known this but I didn't. It went back on really easily though.

Style and Price

J.Jaech S., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I would buy this again. For the price it is a very good value.
  • Pros: I bought it for the clean styling, overall quality, numerous front panel USB ports and many fans. It had all of the features I would expect for this price, plus a little extra. Easily fits ATX board and HHD racks are configurable to accomodate extra-long cards. Front panel cables were nicely tied and managed. Comes with universal mounting brackets for SSD or HHD; worked for both.
  • Cons: Foam gasket around P/S mounting opening was slighlty misaligned. I removed it because it has no use and just makes it harder to attach the P/S. Main covers were a little hard to fit back. Top disc drive slot is obstructed by the front panel ports, although it might fit something smaller; left three available.

timothy g., Newegg

  • Summary: despite my one off experience i would recommend and would buy again myself.
  • Pros: 1.fans and spots for more fans everywhere. 2.lots of water coolers will fit,not all...3. nice finish, hard drive dock and usb ports in the best spot.
  • Cons: Still giving 5 stars due to shipping is not manufacturers fault but mine came dented and of all places on the top grill. Its not a big dent but its all i can notice. lol. The odd part is the box it came in is not dented. not going to RMA i can live with it but not %100 happy.

Very happy with this purchase

Christopher S., Newegg

  • Pros: Excellent air flow and cable management. Easy mounting of drives. Front ports including top mount external SATA are GREAT!
  • Cons: The screwless drive brackets are a little flimsy when you don't have a drive installed but seem to hold just fine.
