Summary: Case design has really come a long way since I taught A+ tech classes some 10 years ago and my last DIY build 8 years ago. Really, being a Cisco network guy the cable routing holes allowing easy cable routing and dressing is my big thing.
Pros: Roomy There are nicely placed holes to route cables through so they are out of the way. Perhaps this is standard these days, but 8+ years ago during my last DIY build, not so much.
Cons: A bit plasticy. Plastic and metal are slightly off on color.
Summary: If you are already planning to watch videos to learn how to build a computer, or this isn't your first time building a computer, then this case will suit your needs well. I personally am SUPER happy with this case. It truly looks amazing with my setup.
Pros: This case was a perfect match for my whole setup. I did a white/turquoise theme, and this was the only case that matched 100%.
Cons: Airflow could be better, but definitely not bad. My cpu is idling at around 27 c° comfortably. Not only is airflow subpar for the price, but man are the hard drive bays cheap! It holds my 3.5 standard HDD alright, but it's definitely not good quality. It wasn't even for those reasons that I took ...
Excerpt: This is a mid-tower set up for gaming. I like the way the drive bays are set up, can fit a GTX 760 in here fine. No worrying about cables being messed up or possible crosstalk between data and power cables. Easy to put the drives in - no tools needed! Front ports and power button are easy access.
Summary: Make sure your mother board is compatible with the front USB 3.0 and the Audio plug in.
Pros: Everything I want in a case. Thanks newegg XD
Cons: There was a few Cons with this case nothing big but I cant give it a 5. 1) There is a gap between the side door and the case up top so now my blue LEDs shine through. 2) The back lid for the mother board is loose where the Ethernet is but that could be my fault. 3) Like everyone said theres not a...
Summary: Paired with ASUS VX238H-W 23" Widescreen monitor. Looks nice together. Both are "modern" looking pieces. White pops nice against a grey wall.
Pros: This is a nice case for the money so it's a good value. I wanted a white and blue build so I was split between this, the NZXT Guardian, and the Corsair Stormtrooper. This was a lot more cost effective so I decided to go with it. I love the space on top for sitting items like flash drives or phone...
Cons: There IS a fair amount of room in this case for an ATX build. It took me a bit of planning but I did manage to fit extra extension cables (for appearance, not a case issue) in it too. But, it could use just a little bit more room behind the mobo tray in my opinion. Even just a few mm.
Excerpt: This case has tons of room for expansion with either fans or water cooling radiators. The hardrive cages come with slots for 2.5 and 3.5 in and are easily removable. The only reason that this case didn't get 5 stars is because the air filters on the front of the case are not removable.
Summary: Overall, I am very impressed with this case. As a first time builder, the Thermaltake Chaser a31 was very welcoming, and had some great features that really helped ease the building process. For its price, this case looks and feels like a high end case.
Pros: Looks nice, Quiet fans, Lots of room, Standoffs are pre applied, Lots of dust filters
