  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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

A very good case for a very good price!

  • Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic case, and is a must for ANY budget PC Gamer. It's done everything I've asked, and more!
  • Pros: • Very clean design. The matte black finish paired with the Blue LEDs is a very clean, sexy design. • This case is large enough to house the newer AMD 7xxx, and nvidia 7xx cards. • The airflow is absolutely great in this case. The default fans "could" be replaced, but I find no need to as they mo...
  • Cons: • When writing a review for this case, Newegg required I add a Con. Which is unfortunate as I can't find ANYTHING wrong with this case!

  • Summary: I bought one of these second hand. It was missing all the extra accessories that come with the newer ones (usb plate, front fan mount, hard drive mounting screws, pci covers). I didn't really mind until I ripped the power switch wires off when removing the faceplate...

Zalman and Newegg (though, I didn't deal with newegg on this one, I have before on other stuff) rubber hard drive isolators Amazing airflow! ssd mount on back AND a tray for ano...
  • Cons: hdd mounts aren't truly tool less unusual power switch routing is easy to destroy switch and/or wire

Good Case

Jeffrey J., Newegg

  • Summary: Great case, just hope you don't get one that had a 100# or larger package laying on it and warping the case during shipping. Worse yet, the damage could easily have happened in the warehouse (pinched on the pallet) and there was massive amounts of packing tape on the outer box like someone tried to...
  • Pros: Price, cooling options, size, easy to work in and assemble.
  • Cons: Case arrived with warping and severe distress of outside box and inner styrofoam. Looked like it had been returned and resold as new. Was not happy about that, but the case worked ok and all the slots and motherboard mounts lined up with components without issue. Side panels lined up a little wei...

  • Summary: Not bad for a case.
  • Pros: Decent looking case. Good airflow. Can add additional fans. 4 USB 2.0 Ports on front panel.
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 ports (although my mobo doesn't have USB 3.0 so it's a non-issue for me).
