Great looking case for the price.

STEVEN D., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • 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...

Worst Case Ever Bought

Wade Z., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • 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...

super thin, tin can case

Lawrence Icenogle, Amazon

  • 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.

Small Tower Case

Justin H., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sturdy Build
  • Cons: None

Cheap,looks Good

Jean-Mathieu L., Newegg
27 March 2015
  • Summary: Ill be ordering another one for another project, hopefully I wont have to repair one of the fan.
  • Pros: Very cheap with the discount, Solid case for the price, 2 quiet fans
  • Cons: Unfortunately for me, one of the fan was defective. I was able to repair it by applying some glue one of the wire the was separated from the ground if that makes sense.

Cheap and Efficient

Tom, Amazon
20 March 2015
  • 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.

It's a $30 case so keep that in mind

Zack F., Newegg
7 March 2015
  • 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?)

Love the size, but those cut corners...

Anonymous, Newegg
2 March 2015
  • 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?

Defective power switch

Brad P., Newegg
2 March 2015
  • 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.
