Summary: I've owned this case since 2008. It's given me a great service and very little problems if any. It's carried me through AMD's Dragon Platform and now it's holding the HD7950. That beast of a videocard fits, but I've had to move the HDD's out of the way. Crossfire is going to be difficult.
Pros: -Spacious enough -Piano black finish -4 120mm fan mountings (1 rear, 2 side, 1 front) -Sturdy -Great air flow
Cons: -No cable management -The HDD mounts face to back of the case like most convetional cases.
Summary: I have this going with my old Asus P4P800SE Socket 478 Pentium 4 2.8c overclocked by 12.5% and the processor idles at around 32-34C in the case.
Pros: Awesome case. I have 4 120mm Thermaltake fans going in it. 3 LEDs blowing air in and 1 NON-LED blowing air out the back and boy does it look nice. My Motherboard temp idles t around 30C. -Looks awesome -Large window -Spacious -Sturdy -Filter on front fan port to help prevent dust from entering -V...
Cons: No cons. Thermaltake is an awesome manufacturer.
Summary: If the hard drive bays were on swivel design allowing you to install the hard drive then turn it inward into a locked position. This would make installation a breeze, and make the case a true keeper for the ages.
Pros: The case has a beautiful design to it. Personally the major reason I bought this case was based on the hard drive bays, fan sizes, steel material, and it had fans without lights on it. The windowed design is good and allows you to see dust bunnies floating around. A great indicator for you to ope...
Cons: This is not truely a con. Personally These day I could do with two or even three drive bays [DVD, etc]. I only used one. This would allow for more hard drive bays. Sometimes it can be difficult to install the hard drives considering how big the video cards have gotten over the years.
Summary: I had to buy this case at a local store. When I ordered all of my components and case from newegg the UPS guy decided to drop off the internals at my place and then drop the case off at my neighbors.
Pros: tool less, decent size, fits 4 120mm fans, front usb / headphone / and mic hook ups.
Cons: only comes with one fan, side panels seem a little flimsy. My headphone jack and USBs on the front of the case weren't working. I ended up going into the bios and changed the audio. I'm not sure if that's what fixed it but they seem to be working now
Summary: It's still such a beautiful case! (Did I mention that already?) despite it's problems, I gladly give this chassis 5 eggs.
Pros: Most beautiful chassis I have ever owned!!! Strong and sturdy. I love the tool free design. More than enough room for expansion. Great price.
Cons: Dust! I don't know why, but this chassis seems to suck up dust like a vacuum cleaner. It has never interfered with the components. But if your OCD about dust, you might want to consider a different case. Also, the front audio ports have never worked for me. I've tried several different main board...
Summary: Intel DG41RQ Intel Dual Core 2.8 GHZ 4 GB DDR2 RAM Thermatake 430W PS XFX ATI HD 5670 WD 750 and 800 GB HDD
Pros: Sleek and elegant design. Easy to access the bays and install new drives, I love the simple locking system. Overall sturdy construction, and excellent design.
Cons: The case fan that came with the case failed me within a month, for all intents and purposes it exploded on me. Easily replaced it and added 2 Antec 120mm fans and a smaller on the side panel. Removed the obstructive fan spout, did no use but no harm either, user preference and board alignment as ...
