Summary: This case is similar to the FBM-01, which has an extra 5.25" eternal bay. I would've liked an extra bay to add a fan controller to the FBM-02. I installed a 2-port USB 3.0 controller in the 3.5" bay, and a recent model LG optical drive, that is a mix of the gloss and brushed look of the case.
Pros: Lightweight. I don't know of a more aesthetically pleasing micro ATX mini-tower for the current price. It has a nice glossy finish, albeit plastic, and brushed aluminum look. Also plastic. No complaint.
Cons: The side panels are flimsy. You also have to be very gentle with the chrome (plastic) strip, near the bottom of the front panel. It can be easily scratched. I have one ribbon-sized wire through the side for cable management, and even something as thin as that, is applying pressure to the side pan...
Summary: If you need to use 3.5" internal hard drives in this case, DON'T buy it. You will regret it if you do.
Pros: Looks nice. Light weight.
Cons: This is the worst case I have ever bought. 1. No way to get my CUP cooler (stock cooler from AMD) and a hard drive to work together. After putting both in the case, there is no space to hook up the power connector to the hard drive. I cannot use a single 3.5" hard drive in this case. Whoever desi...
Summary: Slightly flimsy, super thin, tin can case, but has awesome ventilation. would desprately reccomend you get fans with a higher amperage as these fans don't move air very fast, mine are .20A Especially love the big front intake fan.

Summary: This case fit my needs fine, and has plenty of slots and ports for installing your components. There is not a good slot to put the hard drive, so it's kind of laying in the disused CD drive slot.
Summary: I love this case because it looks good and Newegg.com sells it at a fair price. The fans adequately cool the internal components. If you don't want to buy a cheap and flimsy case or spend a fortune on one of those high gloss cases, then I would recommend giving this one a chance.
Summary: Good for what it is - a cheapo case. Build quality as expected from this price range. Came with two fans - one 120mm and an 80mm. Used it to throw some old parts I had laying around in and sell. Worked for that purpose so I can't complain.
Summary: Carefully plan the order you put your components in unless if you're a toddler handed contortionist. I'd suggest putting the power supply in last. Tried to save 3 bucks on shipping via another retailer... package arrived over a week later than the parts I ordered Newegg, never again.
Pros: It's super cheap (obviously) the 2 included fans are super quiet and move more air than I expected for it being as cheap as it is, side mesh is great for intaking more air if your cpu and gpu need it.
Cons: pcie slots cant be re-covered once it's removed. the area behind the motherboard tray is a joke as far as cable management goes (I actually wan't expecting any space at all so I guess it could be a pro?)
Summary: I bought a sheet of adhesive foam board, cut a slab and mounted it underneath the top panel. Excellent noise reduction, and I'm not denting the top panel with my thumb anymore. This fix cost the money that I saved when I got this case on sale. I shouldn't have to do that. Rosewill, thicker metal.
Pros: Love the size, front design is nice, cools well. Bought 2 in case one was damaged in shipping or assembly. Price on sale was fantastic. It doesn't even have as many sharp edges as I thought it would. It could be such an amazing case... but.....
Cons: There is no excuse for that top panel. Paper thin. Same with the panel where the motherboard mounts. Its like Jello. And isn't USB 3.0 standard on everything now?
Pros: Inexpensive. Quiet fans. Holds the computer together. Looks great.
Cons: The case is a bit flimsy but that's to be expected from a $25 case. My biggest issue is that it came with a defective power switch. I plugged the reset switch into the power switch terminals instead and it works fine now, except I have to press the reset switch to turn it on instead of the power.
