A little more function, a little less form

Summary: Not a bad case for under 50$, it was a cheap home for my build. To get around the clearance issues I bought two 120x12mm fans to mount at the top.
Pros: -This case appeals to my minimalist side -Manages to look good -Fits my 212 Evo no problem -Keeps my FX 6300 decently cooled
Cons: -I was a little irked with the fan mounts. Its an impossibility for me to mount the two top fans. One hits the ram, the other hits the the fan pin connectors. The bottom intake fan mount is made useless by my PSU and the side mount by my video card. - Cable management in this case is not the easi...
Summary: If you absolutely adore the outside looks of this case then it isn't a horrible option, but for just a little more you can get cases with proper front panel PCB's and fan mounting spots that actually make sense.
Pros: This is the first case I bought when I wanted to make my own PC, but after owning it for a while I wish I had bought another one. Pros: Fairly inexpensive Really nice outside looks Can mount 2 additional fans (bottom and front) Has room for a 212 EVO Can fit more than I expected in it with room t...
Cons: Unfortunately the case has a lot of problems. Cons: The front panel audio/usb PCB is awful. There is a lot of interference caused by grounding issues between the USB 2.0 port and the audio ports. No matter what I did in my attempts to fix the interference could that be fixed. I ended up just unpl...
Summary: If you're looking for a neat case and you have the money to dole out on 3 extra 120mm fans then yes this case is great. Otherwise, especially if you plan to OC, I highly suggest you stay away from this case. The lack of performance isn't worth the looks and I learned that a year too late.
Pros: I saw this case in high school and thought it was the coolest case I'd ever seen. Sleek and minimalist with just the right sheen to it. Worked great for a long time. Then I had to look at cooling options...
Cons: Never ever thought I'd have cooling issues with my computer ever. This case taught me to make sure I don't just go for looks next time... CPU starts to get super hot and I need to find a good secondary cooling option for the chip. Liquid cooling? Very hit or miss. Depends on so many factors. Not ...
Pros: Good, sleek looking case, and it's cheap too.
Cons: It would be great if you could actually fit a fan on the top of the case, but it runs into the memory sticks. And the screw holes for the fan in the front of the case are way too small. Kind of silly that there is a design flaw that disables the use of need fans.
Not a horrible case, but definitely not a good one either

Summary: Sure it says you can fit up to 4 120mm fans in this unit but the problem is the designer didn't take into consideration that you might need a motherboard in there as well... The top fan can't be placed as it was meant to be because it bumps into the memory locks..
Pros: Stylish, that's about it
Cons: Only one 120x120x25mm fan comes with this unit as an exhaust in the rear.
Summary: You can't tell me that they didn't know about this, maybe the R and D should do a little more testing before putting products to market. I purchase a LOT of Thermaltake items...make ya wonder how well the design is on those items.
Pros: Looks great, Good quality of build. It will work....
Cons: Poor engineering, Too short! One of the fan mounts on top is useless with 25mm standard fan! With MSI 970A mother board mounted the FWD fan mount on top of case is not usable due to RAM, In fact I check several of my other mother board and non of them would work.. With my Liquid cooling block mou...
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.
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...
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.
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.
