Meh. Alright for the price.

  • Summary: Power supply cable may not/barely reach CPU power plug on mobo.
  • Pros: Decent features, SATA dock is kinda nifty, though I haven't had any luck hot-swapping it. Relatively light, and lots of fan attachment points. Good airflow.
  • Cons: Hard drive cage is not tool-less. You need to screw hard drives into the cage, and the cage will lock into regular 5" bays. They're also oriented lengthwise, i.e. SATA ports facing your motherboard. So by default you lose one bay to a graphics card. My brother has a cheaper case that's easier to ...

Only worth it for the dock on top

  • Summary: The designer must have been drunk when putting the V6 logo on the case, why sideways?? Go BIG with the side window next time not a little peep-hole. There are far better cases out there for the same price.
  • Pros: The docking station is great! Plugs right into a free sata port on your motherboard. Tooless is very nice to have. This case has plenty of ventilation. Attractive power and HHD lights.
  • Cons: For the price it should come with a front fan at least! Only has one hard drive cage, two would have been perfect. Don’t expect to put your cd-burner in the top bay, the dock cables make it impossible. Top fan is also too close to the motherboard.

  • Pros: looks very cool, great fans (cooling system), has lots of opening for ventilation, your computer will never over heat
  • Cons: had to drill new screw holes for the videocard, the back opening for the motherboards connectors is to big so dust can get in. the harddrive screw holes were to low so i had to drill new ones

  • Summary: ok case for the money i bought it before the price and shipping when up(the day before actually).so i wouldn't buy it now. i will be changing the rear and top fan just to keep it all blue and a much higher rpm (performance over comfort) adding a side fan and a front fan.
  • Pros: looks great, love the cage idea for the hard drives. the fans (my additional fans )move A LOT OF AIR so much i just put my hand on top of the case when it gets a bit sweaty sort of like bowling..
  • Cons: like the other guy said all screws fit but one. one twist of the screw and it was stuck but 90 percent of the threading still not in. top left corner. some of the other screws do not fit correctly in the hole so you need to switch screws to make sure it gets in. also the power cable for the dock ...
