  • Summary: I have mixed opinions for this case. I like the general look and aesthetics of the case (naturally, case preference is subjective and differs with each individual). It is decent looking to be a gaming case, yet not too flashy to be an "everyday" case. There is ample space even for the longest non-modular power supply. Additionally, the space behind the motherboard should be sufficient to hide most cable clutter.
  • Pros: Good cooling. 3 fans included. Front fan controller and digital temp readout, Large cpu cooler cutout. All fan locations are filtered. Lots of space behind motherboard tray. Black inside and out. Lots of included screws and fasteners
  • Cons: Front USB 3 are the older passthrough design. Rear PCI slot covers are not reusable. Flimsy steel. HDD mounting awkward. No support for AIO watercooling except single 120

  • Summary: Overall, I am really satisfied with this case. It has 3 included fans itself and they have nice blue LED. But I found that Gigabyte graphic card might be tight to install (it is installable though) for someone. So if you are buying this case, I suggest that buying graphic cards less than 300mm length. Definitely would buy again.
  • Pros: Good price for mid towers with MIR, Nice blue LED Fans, 3 Included Fans
  • Cons: USB 3.0 Cable should connect to back panel instead of motherboard, Bit tight for gigabyte graphic cards due to length

  • Summary: Overall very satisfied and would definitely recommend this for a budget to mid-level build. The lack of USB 3.0 ports on the front is the only thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars. Well worth the price though.
  • Pros: Super quiet, easy to assemble, temp readout, sturdy and comes with 3 fans and a quick removal front face for access to clean filters
  • Cons: tight fit for larger video cards, no USB 3.0 on case

  • Summary: Everybody seems to be unanimous by giving this case 3 stars. Overall a good bang for the buck, the fact that they include 3 fans alone makes this case worth it (figure 10$/fan minimum if you were to buy them separately). Used this to build a PC for my GF with my previous parts and let's just say that the build quality and cable management is not as good as with my aging Antec P182, but again, you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Good-looking and nice feature set for the price, three 120mm fans included
  • Cons: No easy access to front fan filter, so-so instructions, USB 3 through-case "extensions" instead of USB header connection, EXTREMELY awkward/hard access to top fan, other minor design flaws

  • Summary: Spacious case for the price, great looking nothing too overwhelming so the design is easily customizable, had just enough space for 2x 12" cold cathodes + one small laser LED. -0.5 for not being tall enough to accommodate XSPC watercooling radiator inside, -0.5 the rubber holders at the back for the watercooling tubes looks good but keeps falling out when installing/no rubber padding for the holes in the case to hide the cables, -0.5 missing feet at the bottom when the...
  • Pros: Good spacing/holes for cable managment, Comes with decent LED fans, Decent looking, customizable, no overwhelming design, Temperature/fan controller cool interface
  • Cons: No space for mounting customized watercooling radiator, Otherwise just enough space for everything but not enough expandability, Front USB 3.0 not real ports from motherboard just two extentions from back, messy connection, Watercooling tube holders in the back not very well made

  • Summary: 3 Stars and here's why, when it arrived it did not come with Hard drive bays, the power button was not connect, you have to break off disk tray slots and Graphics Card Slots and some Mother Board Bolts do not fit correctly in the pre-drilled holes. Now the cons are over the case is very roomy, I have a FX8350 and EVGA GTX 970 in here and it all fits fine, all UBS slots work as they should and for that price its a steal.

Excellent Case

  • Summary: I needed a new case as my pre built machine, with its incredibly small form factor, needed a new power supply so couldn't just replace the PSU sadly. I am very impressed with this case, but I have only given it 4 stars for reasons I will explain. For its cheap price the case looks great and is really well made, no sharp edges or corners sticking out, always a plus. The case is pre fitted with 2 120mm fans, front intake(with LED) and rear exhaust.

Really good Case

  • Summary: It was larger than I had hoped but still fitted into my space with a little reconfiguration of the furniture (had to drill 4 more holes for a shelf so I could move it up). The cooling capability with the fitted fans and ability to control these and see the temperature is great. I am very happy and the fans run very quiet.
