Best case I have ever had.

  • Summary: This case is very good value, installation of parts easy to complete with no problems at all. Previous reviewer stated had 3 fans, my case contained 4, very pleased. I loved the 'Tool less' system. It would have got a 5 for all 3 catergories but for the following, 24pin mains lead from my power supply to short, so had to purchase an extension, no speaker installed in case so used my old unit.

Pretty good, but not the best.

  • Pros: Fan options out the wazzo. Nice and easy access HDD bay layout (which is a con - see below) and SSD mounting bracket in the bottom bay. Excellent cable routing, even better than my nearly twice as much Antec Nine Hundred. Solid construction. Great dust filters. Fans are quiet except for the side fan, which is obnoxious. Excellent room for even the largest of cards. Large coolers like the Zalman 9700LED fit with plenty of room to spare.
  • Cons: My main gripe is that both the expansion bay and rear PCI "pop out" tabs aren't screwable-unscrewable. They have to be removed permanently. Every other case I've had had these things fastened with screws. On to other criticisms: the "Z" design on the front bezel is most certainly hurting intake performance; useless power supply vent on the bottom; as others have stated, the flushmount top power switch is way to easy to hit; airflow from the front fan intake is practic...

  • Summary: The instructions are non existent this isnt designed for a first time build more for experienced IT people. The usbs on the front could have been designed better. they are just too close.

  • Summary: Used this for a build for kids gaming computer. Great to have usb in front, power supply on bottom, and solid state hard drive tucked away with cables in back.

Nice and cool dust collector.

  • Summary: So this is a case that quite frankly - is epic. I gave it 4 stars because it is a harbinger or dust. This thing just sucks in dust like nothing I have ever seen. If you want to build a great gaming rig with it you should be as well with Zero Pressure or using the dual fans on top to blow air out and all else to take air in (since heat rises). A slot of an SSD is placed "Conveniently" on the other side of the case (Good luck closing that side of the case).

  • Summary: This is a great case, it has great cable management, good air flow and the hard drive bays are a joy to build into. My system has crossfire hd 5850 video cards, 2 hard drives, 1 ssd , and a great big CPU cooler attached to the msi g45 main board. All this fitted with no dramas and no modifying. One fault , the led temperature display on my case is faulty and does not work.

Sleek

Piranha, Amazon

  • Summary: No doubt it looks incredible: the transparent panel and LED fans are a nice touch with the sleek black frame, and with 4 fans in total it seems well-ventilated. Assembly is straightforward and easy. It takes a fair bit of force to push USB plugs into the sockets at the front, which is a good thing because the connection won't fall out if yanked by accident.
