Summary: For $50 its not a bad case. It even has multiple places for SSD. So if youre a cheap builder on a budget definitely go for this case.
Pros: It is a good case for the aspiring builder on a budget. Its sturdy as long as you dont go play basketball with it or something. its a sturdy form of aluminum.
Cons: The cable management routing for this case is almost impossible to make it look really professional without hours and hours of work and sleeved extensions but if you do that it would not fit. Also if you put an ATX mobo in the case the top case fans will not fit.
Summary: Even with all the Cons some how I still love this case. I use this case with a gaming set up, larger cooler master cooler, SLI gtx 660, 2ssd, and 2 normal hard drives, and it stays cool like a champ.
Pros: -Looks awesome -great cooling (once you screw the top fans into the grate cause the mobo wont allow them to fit in the designated spot) -Able to fit a large cooler and 2 larger graphics cards
Cons: -Top Fans hit my mobo -Always had problems with the front USB ports -One of the clips that hold the front panel on broke -Pretty bad cable management
Summary: For the price, can't really beat it. Fits a Hyper 212 EVO with at least a quarter of an inch to spare. Doesn't come with an SDD bracket. Had to buy one out of pocket OR mount it to the bottom of the case. Can't stress enough how much of a well built case this is. Solid. Expected to be flimsy.
Pros: - Less than 50 dollars - Free shipping - Strong, sturdy case - Lots of airflow - Multiple options on fans - Looks great with the white + black color - USB 3.0 Front pannel
Cons: - Hard to manage proper cable management. Not much space in the back of the case. Had to run 4/8 pin motherboard cable from the power supply along the side and then above and then back down to the connector on the motherboard. - Can't mount more than one intake fan from the front (Because oft he ...
Summary: All in all, it's pretty good for the money. Didn't run into any major issues building inside of it. Again, I would buy this case anywhere up to about $50. For more than that I may look elsewhere. If you like the way the case looks though, it will work and you shouldn't run into any major issues.
Pros: -Affordable at this current price. I think we got it for $30 with a MIR. I probably would look elsewhere if this was on sale for >$50. -Respectable name brand.
Cons: -Lack of fans. It only comes with one exhaust fan in the rear/top. I added a side intake fan on the side panel. -The rear PCI/PCI-E tabs have to be "popped" out, the old school way, to insert your GPU or other PCI/PCI-E cards. Not a big deal, but a bit ghetto. -Case may be a bit flimsy compared t...
Summary: I think I should have spent alittle bit more on a case but this case is fine except for the fact that Cooler master Seidon 120v I tried to fit it in, didn't have enough clearance to be mounted and would hit the motherboard.
Pros: Case looks decent Good amount of space Cable Management
Cons: Not even enough space for most closed loop water coolers to be mounted.
Pros: Well, what's to say? Its a good case, its lightweight, the black, blue, and white color scheme go very well together. The cable management is 4 out of 5. Also, the bay drive installation and HDD installation were a breeze. 7-10.
Cons: The case says it has a USB 3.0 port in the front, which is a so janky and gimmicky. You have to use the included wire in the case, run it out the back, and plug into a mobo USB 3.0 port. That'd be great, except my case didn't have the wire installed! Egg taken off for that. Also, its no big deal,...
Summary: Really loved the look of this case over-all. Thermaltake went for aesthetics rather than features on this case, which is fine for those who are able to adapt a way of for example managing their wires, or mounting an extra case fan or two. Would I buy this case again? Yes!
