It's OK.

Nathan H., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall 3/5
  • Pros: It's aesthetically pleasing, very nice looking case.
  • Cons: It honestly has sub-par cable management. There isn't much room for cables behind it, so you really have to get them down pretty tight.

Awesome case

Timothy L., Newegg

  • Summary: If you're considering this case you won't be disappointed.
  • Pros: Best case I've ever owned. Lots of room, great cable management, doubly so if you have a modular PSU. Simple understated styling looks great but is not overly flashy or noticeable(big plus for me). I love the expandability, the fan placement(though tops fans use weird special screws included with case) and sheer flexibility of this case. Air flow is great, even without any added fans, room for EVO 212 cooler. HDD dock on top is more useful than I thought.
  • Cons: One little thing bothers me. The drive door, while extremely high quality, opens from the bottom only. That's a bit odd since most will keep this on the floor to use the drive dock. Not worth knocking an egg for though.

NICE case...cheap on details

Riaz F., Newegg
26 December 2013
  • Pros: nice case and works pretty good and i love the looks. The only thing that kind of gt to moe was when you take off the plastic from the front panel, some of the glue from the plastic, sticks into the grooves at the edges, i am sure that i can get it out but its just another hassle! Overall very good case and would recommend
  • Cons: Plastic sticks to the side of the front panel edges and look very displeasing

Sleek and Unique

Sky H., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Pros: I just love the look of this beast. Sleek front door, blue power LED, side window, docking station for external drive mounting, great cable management, bottom mount PSU, plenty of air flow, room for a liquid radiator, dust screens.
  • Cons: If I had to nit pick, the power button isn't my favorite thing, but it's really not bad at all. I was hoping for a dynamic push button, but its just a simple click. Not really a big deal cuz I like to just it as a sleep button, so it actually works better the way it is.

Michael W., Newegg
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I hate to even take 1 egg off for these two minor oversights. But I feel it important for people to know as it may make or break this purchase.
  • Pros: Full ATX Form Factor - obviously.
  • Cons: Can't open the front drive door. Seriously?!!

Solid case especially if it's on sale

  • Summary: -The EVGA 500b 8 pin supplemental cpu power cord is too short to route behind the motherboard in this case making it look kinda cruddy hanging out front
  • Pros: -got my case for 67 dollars undeniably worth it
  • Cons: ALL CONS ARE MINOR:

Maybe i'm lucky or maybe it's just that good

Zachary F., Newegg
2 October 2013
  • Pros: This case is perfect, a lot of the cons i have seen in reviews are non existent, for example the door opens a full 100 degrees unlike what i have seen in other reviews, plenty of room for cable management everything you could want in a case!
  • Cons: none

Michael G., Newegg
1 October 2013
  • Summary: overall this is a good case . it has room for 3 fans which in my opinion is more than enough . so currently i have one 120 mm slow used for a rad . and the other 2 for airflow . it looks nice with the 2 cold cathodes i installed . and overall gives decent thermals easily cooling my overclocked 560 ti . .. the main issues are A some parts are flimsy and if your not careful will break . 2.
  • Pros: simple but stylish .
  • Cons: cable management isnt great . especially if you dont have a modular psu .

Why Buy This VS ‘The Silent Back Box from Sweden’

Joseph M., Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I got this over the ‘The silent black box from Sweden’ case (I can’t mention competitor’s names/products or this review will be taken down). I got what I paid for, but I’m still very happy over all. If you want sound damping foam, get the non-windowed version of this case, or DYI with sound damping foam from Newegg. That is what I did and I’m very pleased!
  • Pros: Read the description, it will tell you a lot, I’m only going to mention the things I liked that were not highlighted in the description. I believe a case is one of the things in PC building that we builders obsess over for a bit too long. So I’m going to try and be as detailed as possible so I can help you decide if you want this case. Enjoy!
  • Cons: --It does not have enough screws to mount both front and both top fans. The front and top both use a special type of m3 x 28mm screw, the case comes with 12, you need 16 for all four fans. There are 4 installed on the pre-installed fan, and 8 extra. The manual even mentions that this only comes with 8 extra. I’m really let down by this, it would only make sense to have the full amount (just 4 more!) of this special screws available. To get around that, I installed eac...
