For the reviewer below...

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2015
  • Summary: Better a late review than none at all, lol.
  • Pros: Even though it's been 3 years since the guy below wrote his review I am going to correct him. The side doors are rough texture and were from the 1st day you built your system. They came that way. The fact that you did not notice it seems incredible. Anyway, I bought the case in 2010 and the front...
  • Cons: Price. Case does have some plastic and many have had door issues, I was just lucky enough to have avoided it.

Love it but....

Ben B., Newegg

  • Summary: I would buy another one but the door issue so many have complained about needs fixed and the side door issue is the first I've seen of it. I cannot be having any part of my build rusting or corroding.
  • Pros: Beautiful! One of the best looking cases out there. Black wiring makes it easy to fill with black parts and have everything be jet black. The way the MB mounts is glorious. This thing looks absolutely sexy.
  • Cons: Havn't had it even a year yet and after using the front door maybe 10 times it broke and will no longer latch in the down position. I just inspected the case today and noticed that the metal side feels rough as if it is rusting under the paint job. This is extremely worrying for me.

Cool looking case, heat issue?

Evan H., Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: Wish there was holes to wire cables through.
  • Pros: The design is pretty amazing considering the 90 degree motherboard mount, cable management is easy.
  • Cons: HEAT ISSUE!!! I mean running a single is is fine but, the lack of fans in the case itself is horrible. I run 3 way GTX 580 SLI and idle I get is high 60's with 100% fan speed, it would've dropped really low if they made the back of the case with a intake fan for air cooling, but I guess they left...

Well worth the investment

  • Summary: Asus Sabertooth 990fx FX-8120 4.0 Ghz zalman cnps 9900max 16GB Gskill Sniper Memory 2 Gigabyte SOC GTX 470's 1000W XFX pro series PSU 2 Adata 120GB SSD's raid 0 1TB Segate Storage drive.
  • Pros: The vertical motherboard mount is awesome it keeps my 2 Gigabyte SOC GTX470's running in SLI cooler than most would expect they run about 75 C under full load. My FX-8120 oc'd to 4.0Ghz with a zalman cooler runs at about 50 C under full load. This case is whisper quiet and no temps are over 55 C....
  • Cons: Only con would be if you use any video adapter's dvi to hdmi etc... you may not have enough space to use them. Not a con at all for me just something I noticed.

Terrible Door

WEI-KAI W., Newegg
14 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought it for the looks and looks are all it's good for at this point.
  • Pros: Great looks and interesting 90 degree layout.
  • Cons: The door mechanism decided to break just when the 1 year warranty ran out. As a result, the door no longer stays down and shoots straight back up no matter how many times I push it down. I disassembled the front panel/door and found a cuboid 50 cent spring catch mechanism at the base of the door ...

Expensive, flashy, but not worth the price.

Alberto P., Newegg
20 March 2012
  • Summary: Also, it needs to be said the cable management of this case frankly SUCKS. I don't get how companies can make a case that looks this visually appealing (in my eyes) but skimp out on quality and important things like cable management, especially when cables impede air flow and this case is designed...
  • Pros: Unique heat dissapation layout (90° mobo layout), unique "stealth" fighter look. Not overly flash, but discreet but still with style.
  • Cons: Quality. I read the reviews on here about the front panel sliding door and how it broke on everyone. I was like "Nah, won't happen to me." I took the shot and bought it in December 2011 and it worked great. Yesterday however, it decides to slide upward out of nowhere; it had finally broke. I coul...

Awesome case

Ajay P., Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Pros: -Awesome case design -Plenty of room for some builds* -Good air-movement with vertical cooling so it naturally moves hot air upwards. -High quality and durable case material.
  • Cons: -*With 2 cards in SLI set up the case does get a bit tight, so there is limited space for certain builds. (Wouldn't recommend this case for a 3-way or Quad sli set up) -Cable management is kind of difficult.

amazing!

  • Pros: These earphones are amazing. They fit comfortably in your ears. I had these things in for over 3 hours and felt no discomfort at all. The bass is pretty epic also. Buy these!
  • Cons: Only con is the foam covers are too big for my ears.

User Review

Brian C., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Pros: looks nice, doesn't make too much noise
  • Cons: I am very dissatisfied with the build quality of this case. Judging by the reviews, I am not the only one with a defective door latch. This isn't a major issue for me, because I don't use optical drives as often as I used to. I am extremely dissatisfied with the fact that my reset switch has also...

bad case for Air Cooled Sli.

Sean F., Newegg
15 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a great case if you are going to run 1 card or liquid cool. I strongly suggest you look elsewhere if you plan on Aircooling and running an Sli/Crossfire setup. Good luck and I hope my oppinions help you with you thoughts of this case.
  • Pros: ~Top notch materials ~Motherboard Positioning ~Easy to Clean I have had this case over a year now. I have done both Single GPU and Dual GPU setups in this case. That being said with a single card setup, this case runs ice cold. My average temps on air cooling are in the 40C range. I overclock my ...
  • Cons: This is where the eggs fall. I like to Sli and I like to Overclock. If you are looking to Sli, find another case. At first when I was running 2 x GTX275's the temps would be about 40C (card 1) and the other would be in the 90C range (card 2). At first I thought that it was the cards, so I upgrade...
