Looks great on the outside, poorly designed insides, You should heed my warnings before buying!

Gregory H., Newegg
19 February 2016
  • Summary: It looks really good fully assembled, after all the hell I went through I'm happy with the case's end result, but would I recommend some one else hell no unless you can get it for half off, and would I consider buying it again? DOUBLE HELL NO!
  • Pros: You can fit a lot into it, looks really good, steel case is strong and durable
  • Cons: Inside of the case is not made well Has a weird rubber cable management thingy that is supposed to be glued into the HDD bracket, it wasn't attached when I opened the case and took my 15 minutes to figure out what it was and where it went. It gets in the way anyway so I didn't put it back in Stup...

Nice case, but arrived damaged!

Amazon Customer "J-reggle", Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: The case was nice, but the manufacturer has some really poor QC. I waited so long for this case to arrive to build my HTPC, but it arrived dented to the point I could not remove the optical drive bay. How this slipped past their QC is beyond me and very unacceptable.

Nice Looking, 11" Expansion Cards! With one fatal flaw...

Justin W., Newegg
22 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this from another retailer because they had a better deal for shipping at the time. I will be posting this review over there as well.
  • Pros: -Looks good. -Easy to work with. Disassembles easily leaving a wide open space for mounting the motherboard. -Comes with what appear to be good fans, saving some money for me.
  • Cons: And now, the fatal flaw. Claims to support expansion cards up to 11" (and it does, length wise). What they forget to mention is that the case is not tall enough to support these expansion cards, esp. if they require external power. It needs another 0.5" or so to be acceptable, and 1" to be perfec...

Meh... it works

Alexander S., Newegg
27 July 2011
  • Summary: Better documentation would have helped greatly especially in installing the hardrives. Installing the hard drives is a chore because, with short cables, it is tough to plug the cable in once the cage is installed, or use long cables that you can attach before the cage is in, but then you have lots...
  • Pros: It fits everything I needed it too (optical+2 HDs), without too much wasted space. There should be better cases out there, I just can't find them.
  • Cons: This is the most difficult case I have ever worked on. Even getting the top back on takes lots of time, effort, and a hammer. The screws are small and many, including lots of different sizes. The case needs to be almost completely disassembled to do any work on it. Cable management is poor, the l...
