Summary: It's a great case. I am knocking off an egg because of the faulty usb ports and the user manual.
Pros: -Good air flow -Ample docking bays for HDDs and SSDs -Looks good with the blue and white -Decent cable management, though I had to get creative -Ample space for various upgrades such as fans, 2 gpus, or a large cpu cooler -beware with upgrading the cpu cooler if you have a side fan in though, I j...
Cons: -Issues with front usb drives, both 3.0 and 2.0; things like my phone won't stay continuously connected; they feel very loose -The manual isn't very descriptive on some of the features -if anyone can tell me what the red led that sometimes flickers on the top left of the case represents that woul...
Summary: Would have given this 5/5 If I hadn't had any problems with usb ports on the front. Awesome case otherwise
Pros: * LEDs look awesome * Very spacious, easy to organize cables * Case looks great
Cons: * Had some issues with the standard USB ports on the front of the case. The pins got bent really easily on one of them and the other usb port was slightly bent when it arrived and wasn't usable at all.
Pros: The case is massive. This makes it easier to install everything. Plus the fan expansion options are awesome. I was replacing an older thermaltake case so I took 2 of the 233mm fans from that and put them in this one. I love the easy pop off panel design too. The 2 USB 2.0 and 3.0 front panel inpu...
Cons: The only con is that the front inlet 233mm LED fan sometimes does not spin on it's own. Occasionally I need to pop the front panel off and poke it so it will spin up when starting the computer.
Summary: Have ordered another case from a different manufacturer only because I have seen the case in person and it is what I really want. The overseer really can't be beat for the price.
Pros: First build case. Easy to work in. Quality high. All cables in tact and easily identified. Came with rebate so price was right
Cons: Additional fan for top was hard to find. Moved front fan to top and purchased a new fan for front. A still a little tight but worked ok. Not a big fan of the blue LEDs. If you plan on using a fan on your side panel, you will have to watch the height of the CPU cooler. For this I removed one egg. ...
Pros: Great aesthetics, stock fans provide excellent cooling and are very quiet even at max RPM. I am upgrading from an (admittedly outdated) Thermaltake Xaser III and I am already seeing 15ºc temperature decrease on my i7 4770k when running Prime95 tests.
Cons: I'm deducting 1 egg for unclear and possibly incorrect information on the max CPU cooler height. Case is advertised as being able to take up to a 177mm CPU cooler, however from my experience I can tell anyone looking to add the optional side fan that 160mm is the max height for a CPU cooler which...
