  • Pros: nice room to work, bought this for my friends build and was easier to install board and everything then mine was
  • Cons: kinda cheeply made, has quick install drive bays and such, but are almost as much of a time waster, as a time saver due to cheep design

Step One of Build Two

David T., Newegg
1 November 2012
  • Summary: I wanted better cable management options for build #2 & the Dokker looks like a good alternative, especially at the price. Free Newegg delivery in less than a week, which is typical.
  • Pros: Outstanding price for decent case. My 1st was Antec 300. I like the Dokkers bottom venting & ability to remove & clean front & bottom dust screens without having to open the case. I also like its wide open design & painted interior. Cable management and access to components in general will be eas...
  • Cons: I prefer the way Antecs sides come off. They seem more solid and swing out easily. I think the Antec is a bit more solid overall.

Good case for the price

Joe B., Newegg
15 October 2012
  • Summary: I like the HD dock. I have many old HD laying around (16x 500GB from a storage array I upgraded to larger drives). I use this for backups. If the 200mm fan was easier to obtain It would be a definite 5 stars.
  • Pros: Nice, attractive, easy to work with case. Good air flow. Quality greater than the price would lead you to believe.
  • Cons: A 200mm fan will not fit this case. Thermaltake has stopped making the proprietary fan that went with the case (AF0046, blue LED fan). The proprietary fan had a 170mm fan and the overall dimensions of the fan unit was 200mm. Normal 200mm fans are about 20mm too wide. Zero chance of getting one to...

Decent budget case

Mary O., Newegg
14 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall satisfied with the purchase at the price point this case is in. Only deducted the one egg for the faceplate falling off (multiple times) and for the lopsided feet. Both easily fixed but despite this cases price point, both of these issues I would think could be rectified with better quality...
  • Pros: - Inexpensive - Decent quality for the price - Great airflow - Plenty of room for extra fans - Motherboard tray cut out for access behind processor - Both side panels removable, + for installing aftermarket cpu coolers - Good amount of room on top for water cooler radiator (didn't watercool this ...
  • Cons: - "decent" case, but is rather thin metal compared to better, although more expensive cases. - Front faceplate has no way to secure/lock it in place, falls off with little effort - Mentioned in previous reviews, top hdd dock does block a full size drive...good for fan controller though - top hdd ...

Solid case

James P., Newegg
30 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a metal box my system was kept in and temps immediately dropped by about 15 C throughout the case. It wasn't a new system, but my friend and I took the massive effort (about 3 hours) of doing a good cabling job in this thing, we shoved a lot of the excess right up in front...
  • Pros: -Fans. Fans everywhere. -Small side window allows use of one color LED up front and a separate color in the chassis itself, which ends up looking very sharp. -Conservative styling with room to make it all your own. -Price, this was $80 when I bought it, it's cheaper now, and I would've paid more ...
  • Cons: -HDD dock on top restricts use of the top 5.25" drive bay to fan controllers, I had one that I was putting in anyways, so it just got moved up a spot, could look "weird" if you didn't have anything to put up there. -Bottom fan grills had to be taped over to keep dust from getting in when it sat o...

Good, roomy, a few 'annoyances'

Anonymous, Newegg
10 August 2011
  • Summary: All in all it is difficult to beat for this money. I'd buy another for myself.
  • Pros: Okay, the only thing I could find reasonably priced that would fit my HD6950 with an Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme. Since it is about 13" long. And it does fit with a bit of adjustment into the HDD bay. Plenty of places for exhaust fans. Fairly solid though there are issues (See cons) the mesh i...
  • Cons: Little things. Not a LOT of room for cable management, but you can do so well if you are creative. The HDD cage isn't sideways, which there is PLENTY of room for it to be so, for easier access to drives; though that does make for better airflow this way IF. The front intake area for 120/92mm fan....

  • Summary: There is Not sure what planet their rulers are from. There is not a 200mm fan space in the top. there are 140mm-ish holes in the top towards the back, though. But, if you use a closed loop system with a radiator on the back fan, then you can only use a 120mm in that top position due to clearance...
  • Pros: Widebody. Itll fit just about any cooling solution you can expect to throw at a mid tower. Lots of holes for fans... more on that in a moment. filters on most of the spots where it matters. Docking? if you're into that... Good presence - imposing little mid tower. Good fan included. Breathes very...
  • Cons: There is sometihng cheap about this case. Cant put my finger on it. Cable hiding is more like cable stuffing in this case. cheap plastic power button... kind of a turn off that the cheapened out here. Its the only part I touch regularly, make it a good beefy metal piece!

Great

Earl H., Newegg
10 April 2011
  • Summary: I have to admit the wire management is not superb, but it's adequate if you are creative and patient. It has maybe around 1/2 inch or less behind the motherboard tray for wiring. There is also various holes in the tray so you can route all of the wiring behind the tray.
  • Pros: Building a new system, acquiring parts, and putting them neatly in a box sounds easy.. Then there is other issues, such as cooling, component fitting, upgrade ability, power, etc.. that we seem to forget when we first brainstorm our build. So I had to get a new case. I picked this one; although I...
  • Cons: What I did not like about the case, is how the "Dokker" harddrive docking bay is implemented. Its really hard to get an optical drive at the very top 5"1/2 bay opening because of the way they designed the docking solution. I bought an Aerocool "X" fan controller to place at the top (it takes two ...

Awesome and reasonably priced.

Charles S., Newegg
24 February 2011
  • Summary: This case is really great and well built it has some overlook-able kinks in design that make you wonder but never stop you from using this case simply add a simple extra step to make it more satisfactory.
  • Pros: The construction is nice and sturdy but not overdone. Everything seems to be where it needs be so no worries bout some random part not fitting except for one which seems a misprint. Even though the Dokker takes up one of the front bays makes a great spot for a fan controller. Looks sleek and expe...
  • Cons: First the fan that cam with it has two different color LEDs kinda of sad but not terrible. Second the top "20cm" fan option doesn't seem to be true seems it's a 17 cm fan which is still plenty anyway so I'm guessing misprint. Third the orange HDD Led is kinda of weak and seems off with the case, ...

Awesome Case for the $

James C., Newegg
17 February 2011
  • Summary: Other than having to spend $20 on a 200mm fan to find it doesnt fit, then to have to buy another, great case for the money. Disappointed in TT as I'm accustomed to nothing less than perfect from them.
  • Pros: Very well built, no excess, just perfect.
  • Cons: The 200mm top mounted exhaust fan slot is either weird, or the Cooler Master fan I have is a whack job. Theres no way this fan is fitting in there. The fan itself is the exact width of the case. Now consider there is the motherboard tray in there, and the sides of the case being rolled steel decr...
