Not intended for liquid cooling

Summary: Case looks good and for the price it's OK. Things to keep in mind are that this is a case strictly for air cooling, don't even think about fitting in liquid cooling. There's no room for even a small compact unit like an H55 (corsair)...unless you seriously mod the case. Other than that, cable management isn't that great (tight space) but what can you expect for a case in this price range.
Summary: Bought this case with the two top 120mm in mind for my H100i.... unfortunately after installing my Asus M5A99FX Mobo which was leaving almost a 1cm space between the mobo and the top of the case, i didnt even have space for a fan or my cooling system.... if u have plans on installing a long radiator.... dont buy.
Summary: Unfortunately this case is small. I would not fit my GA-990FXA-UD5 without it hitting the top and bottom of the motherboard tray. Also, with the board installed, you couldn't install the top case fans. Finally, my Thermaltake Trio was too tall for the side panel.
Summary: Got the case as part of a DIY kit. Only has one USB connector for the front panel that will connect to the motherboard, the other has to waste one of the USB connectors on the back of the case to make it active, bad design. Power supply is located at the very bottom of the case with the motherboard at the top, one of the power connector from the power supply would barely reach the proper locations on the motherboard, again not a good design.
Summary: Its very small case and cant use the top fans at all. so i ended up going with the V spec case from Thermaltake and love it but it was a lil bit more at 100 bucks but well worth it fits every thing unlike this case..
Summary: The case is worth the cost. For a budget gamer, it will get the job done and look pretty good in the process. I put a couple red LED fans to accentuate the look. The case is pretty sturdy. It definitely has a plastic feel, but I couldn't tell by looking at it. No-tools is nice and made for a easy set up.
Summary: Very nice looking case. I wanted something without a door to access usb ports. The 3.0 usb port on the front is not designed well. The cable that hooks to it has to be run through the case, out the back and hooks to the usb port on the outside of the motherboard. Should have just left it a 2.o. Putting a fan on top inside is too close to the memory modules in my computer.If I add or replace memory, the fan has to come out first. It is right against the memory.
Summary: Pro: it has a lot of fan mounts Con: if you use an ATX board and a larger than 400W PSU there will be 3 less places to actually mount fans unless they are ultra ultra slim, no filters for top fan vents, you would not believe what will fall into your case... Pro:has USB 3.0 header Con: header is attached to USB 3.0 male not a motherboard header connector, and NO WAY TO ROUTE THE CABLE TO THE REAR OF THE MOTHERBOARD!
