Summary: Hard to find a descent white case these days without paying over $120. This is by no means a "Great" case, but it gets the job done. A little on the flimsy side, especially the expansion slot covers in the back. The painted interior is nice and was also a lead selling point. Really no true complaints other than build quality, but then again it was fairly cheap so you get what you pay for. Wish it came with more fans or bigger ones though.
Summary: I've been building PCs for quite a while now (roughly 20 years), so I've developed a decent sense of what to expect within various price ranges, and I suppose these days this about what you get for under $60. Still... Personally, I'd spend the extra $10-$30 and get a Cooler Master HAF if I could do it over again, but this was a build for another person and they wanted a "cool-looking" case. PROS: Affordable. Amazon had it $10 cheaper than NewEgg when I bought it, too.
Summary: I frickin love this case to be complete honest, it looks really cool. I really like who Thermaltake clashed the white and black together. The only problem I had was when plugging in the front panel to my mobo, the sire separated and I must have connected the wires to the wrong plug. that being said there was a small fire or burning of the front panel wires and left a burn mark on my case on the inside.
Summary: It is nice but when I received it it only came with two standoffs, so now I have to place yet another order to get more standoffs so i can place the motherboard in the case. pretty disappointed, first time I ordered a thermal take product and its a bad experience.
Summary: The best part about this case has to be the look. The side window, black interior, white exterior, and the blue led fan all go really well together and I don't think you can get a better looking case for the money. The cable management is decent, but don't let the bump on the side panel fool you, there isn't a ton of room back there for cables, and I have a modular psu.
Summary: The quality of this item met my expectations, I guess I will lead off by saying that. The looks are unique, my last gaming rig was black so I decided to switch to white with my new one, that was part of my considerations when buying it. matches my corsair m65 mouse, and my ax720 decoder box etc etc There isn't really anything surprising about this case as far as positives go, so im gonna get on with the bad stuff.
Summary: Design of case is great, personal opinion there though. When ATX Motherboard installed if you want to put a fan on the top of the unit you'll need a slimline one, and this still can be a tight fit. Also, seems as though there is a space for fan in the front of the case for increased airflow though as yet been unable to fit one here. Front USB 3.0 header and Audio/Mic Jack are a nice addition.
Summary: Having bought this case there are some issues...... The good thing ...Its really white (although the drive bay covers and grills should have been too imho) It comes with a rear 120mm fan attcahed. There are no sharp edges - so no 'shower-scene -from -psycho ' when you delve around. Believe me anyone whose used a chaep stamped metal case without rolled edges will appreciate this . Now for the not so good bits ....
Summary: When I got the case I was pleasantly surprised because the case was actually really good, however, it does have some major issues like the cable management and the space inside the case, also the panels that protect the ports on the back aren't able to be put back on which is a shame, meaning more dust can get into the rig. But, with it's faults being over shadow by some of the good features about the case I was delighted to see this case work so well.
