Great case with a minor flaw

Pros: Its a sturdy case. Plenty of room for fans. Not much else to say other than it's a case that gets the job done.
Cons: The front USB 3.0 is not actually a 3.0 header to connect to your motherboard, its a long USB cable that you route to the back of the case and plug it into the back of the motherboard, which is the most stupidest thing I have every heard of.
Summary: I enjoyed this case for when I was a beginner with building my own PC. As I upgraded I noticed this case is extremely small. If you want to have an organized PC from the inside, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're new and thinks it looks cool(which it does) then you should!
Summary: very nice looking case, a little flimsy, but for a budget case under $75 I kind of expected this. although it advertise as water-cooler ready be ware that if you're water-cooler is a prebuilt unit that has a dual length cooler this will or most likely not work for you.
Summary: This case worked well with my mini atx board. Paired with the NZXT fan controller, the chasis looks awesome. Plenty of ventilation and looks great to boot. I knew the usb port in the front was just a pass-thru to a port in the back but I still don't understand why they did this. The front panel connections for the Mic, headphone and USB flex a lot as they are mounted on a very thin plastic beam.

Summary: ONLY REAL DOWNSIDE I HAD WAS MY LIQUID COOLING WILL NOT FIT ON REAR FAN SLOT AND CLEAR MB ended attaching LQ to bottom slot near PSU. which has actually made it easier to clean. added some extra red led fans looks amazing really light but really solidly made had over a year now and im constantly moving only part that has shifted/ come off are the horrible press in feet (ended up JB welding them in place All in All i would buy agian as a great budget case
Summary: Over all I do love this case a lot, with my build this case worked perfectly but was a little limiting hardware wise.
Pros: Overall it has very good build quality it has decent airflow for a mid tower looks great
Cons: Its lacking on the cable management end, there isn't really a whole lot of room and I found myself having to smoosh cables together to get them to fit and i'm very disappointed with USB 3.0 port in the front only being usable by taking using one of the usb ports on the rear from your motherboard I don't suggest this case if you're looking to get a water cooler for your CPU because there just isn't any room to logically mount a radiator

Summary: This case is great. It has lots of prefab mounts for 12" fans. I was able to get a sealed water CPU cooler in but only the single size. The double sized radiator wouldn't fit. There wasn't clearance between it and the RAM. The audio plugs on the front are just mounted on a plastic crossbeam so they flex when you plug in headphones, mics, or USBs. I'll probably add a strip of metal to reinforce it, but Thermaltake should have done that for us.
Summary: If you didn't understand what I meant by the usb 3.0 thing, I mean that the front panel usb 3.0 connector has to be wired outside of the case, and plugged into one of the i/o ports on the motherboard. So basically transfers one of the back ones into a front one. If they fixed that, this case would be sooo sick.
Pros: Looks great Cheap Decent space Good drive bays
Cons: No space for watercooling Actual usb 3.0 front panel connector
Pros: Nice case overall. If using a smaller SSD you need to use housing so it fits in bay.
Cons: Fan locations and layout don't work well with the MSI B85-G41 Motherboard I purchased - two top fans conflict badly with memory slots and CPU location/fan or watercooling. I installed a Cooler Master Seidon 120 and it barely would fit with the 8 pin connector plug location - had to mount by putting screw though fan grill hole not meant for screw - but it does work. USB 3.0 included on face of case hooks up via an extension USB cord. Per the directions you have to run ...
