Lots of Room Hotswap Connector needs help

Kenneth R., Newegg
28 July 2012
  • Pros: Lots of space H70 cooler and extra fans keep my system down to 30-40c
  • Cons: Hot swap connector poorly designed! not for constant use it wears out fast I have to wiggle the drive to get a connection I had the same issue with a previous Thermaltake case with a top loading dock! Thermaltake's support about this issue is poor they want you to send them a $0.50 plastic part b...

It buzzes

Alexander F., Newegg
23 February 2012
  • Summary: Wouldn't recommend it unless you wear headphones all of the time.
  • Pros: Keeps everything well-cooled.
  • Cons: It buzzes. Somehow it has to have *just* the right positioning to be quiet - any other position causes it to pulse, as if something is resonating or something. It's incredibly annoying and very easy to cause by bumping it. I've removed all drives and something on the outside of the case is still ...

Not as good

Rudy A., Newegg
8 December 2011
  • Summary: From the price, I expected a lot from this case. Unfortunately, it doesn't beat my previous Antec Three Hundred case, which Newegg currently has on sale for $40 AR.
  • Pros: Good looking. Lots of hard drives slots. Good amount of headroom for third-party CPU coolers.
  • Cons: 1) It's not completely tool free. I still need to screw in the hard drives on the "EasySwap" cases. The manual recommended this to secure the drives. 2) There's hardly any space behind the hard drives because EasySwap inserts from the left side. I have SATA cables that have L-shaped (90 degrees) ...

Decent Case, but...

Monte L., Newegg
28 August 2011
  • Summary: Not sure I would have bought this case if I had more time to investigate the options available to me. As it was, I had to build in a hurry and selected this case as part of a bundle deal on New Egg. It's not a bad case at all, but there are better options available.
  • Pros: Nice case, large and roomy. Good fans and room/connections to add several more if/when needed. Easy to set up with just about anything you would want to throw in it. I've been happy with the purchase.
  • Cons: There are a couple things that bug me... Starting with the USB3 cable that you have to run from the front header, through the system and out one of the rear water cooling hose holes and connect externally to one of the two USB3 plugs on the back. I knew it was setup like that when I bought it, bu...

for first time builders but i <3 it

Tyler F., Newegg
22 August 2011
  • Summary: Front panel and side wondow made of plastic. good for first build. micro atx and atx supported... this case go with micro. truly a good case. if you dont have the money for the obsidian then this is perfect for you ;D. dont let other people babyish comments prevent you from buying
  • Pros: I purchased this case when it first came out, it was my first project build. I personally love how there is not a front door, and that the drive bays are easily accessed. The sideswap for hard drives is convienient but you will probably never use it. For it takes smaller HDD's. Case fans work abs...
  • Cons: USB 3.0 doesnt connect to motherboard directly. it is wired through to the back and is connected to the mobo's back panel. taking away precious ports. The window of my side panel was cracked on delivery. Is made of steel, but kinda flimsy. my beast GPU didnt fit with its manufactured fan casing. ...

Rebate is quick to expire

Richard M., Newegg
22 August 2011
  • Pros: Seems like a nice case for money
  • Cons: Rebate is a joke The form must be postmarked within 20 days of invoice which means you have a little over two weeks from time you received product to mail form in that is a short amount of time since they rebate also wont be processed for 8-10 weeks so dont consider rebate as part of price Maybe ...

it scratched my paint.

Bernardine P., Newegg
20 July 2011
  • Summary: when i first saw this i knew i would buy it, when it got here i was in love with it... then i got to know it better. Im comparing this to a movie sequel, someone had a good idea (in this case, the a90) then someone wanted to make more money so they ripped off the idea, changed it a bit and made a...
  • Pros: for the first time ever the "UPS 3 day shipping" only took 3 days. its Big, comes with three big enough fans and black Unique design with innovative features
  • Cons: The "sideclick easy swap" is a good idea executed by a blind idiot, It uses a sata "docking port" but the power comes from the old 4 pin plug (why would they do that?), and mine was bent too bad to plug anything in = Garbage. It would have matched my PSU but the first time i put it in it was upsi...

Good, But....

Kaeli M., Newegg
14 July 2011
  • Summary: A good quality case which I got at a discounter anyways. I am very happy with the case and pleased with my purchase. I do hope future buys from this brand though, have the same quality in every detail, instead of having some dollar general stock fans and and rigged front USB port.
  • Pros: Solid build, good material, does not feel flimsy. Wireless install port for Master HD. Two Fans are higher quality. USB 3.0 ports Size and air flow Plenty of room even for the largest of cards. Wires, screws, ect are all presented nicely and well placed. Bright and lovely BLUE LED lights
  • Cons: The 120mm on the rear is cheap, when I say cheap I mean it looks like you could spit on it and break it. Very flimsy, very ugly, cheap plastic. The top fan (200mm supposedly) Is better, but is also not what I had hoped for. The final fan, the front intake is amazing however. It is a quality fan a...

Flawed but still looks nice,

Dominick B., Newegg
4 July 2011
  • Pros: love the look of the case and how it illuminates in the inside. It holds parts
  • Cons: The front fan came DOA and by the time you put the entire computer together I'm not about to take it all apart just to send it back because of a broken fan I'll spend 10 bucks and buy a different once.
