Excellent airflow, black interior, effectively constructed, lots of fans, good window, lots of space. fits hyper 212 plus heatsink/dualfans. Like becoming in a position to have a 140mm front fan cable managment is not that fantastic, but i managed effectively for a initially develop, so if you're skilled then it should be excellent. front blue LEDs are Seriously Genuinely bright, so i modded them out for red, accidently bough 3mm needs 5 but i made it work operating core i3 on p55 F.T.W. 200 (cause its innapropriate without the dots?) with GTS 450 and a 750W OCZ modular PSU with 8GB ram. keeps everything nice and cool have five fans not like GPU and PSU, and its truly quiet. 140MM at the front is nice. keeps my 250GB Seagate and my 640GB WD caviar black good and cool

Adore the tooless cage for HD's and DVD drive's. Nice and roomy inside. Filter at the bottom for energy supply air intake, despite the fact that I placed my energy supply facing up as the surface it is going to be on is carpet and don't want it sucking up anything from there even with the 1 inch clearance at the buttom. Clear panel side makes your laptop look nice if you had excellent stuff to show. The mteal is thin so becareful with it. It only comes with two fans. There are lots of possibilities for more fans if you feel like buying them which I do advise acquiring a rear fan somewhere. Blue fan in front depends on your preferance

costsimplicityventilation none but got it in a combo with a cooler master 460w psu for 55.99 after mail in rebate, cant beat that........

All the characteristics I was looking for in a case:-Bottom mounted energy provide-Side window-Plenty of room for big graphics cards-Sufficient width to hold a CM Hyper 212+ cpu cooler-Dust filters-A lot of mounts for fans, including a mount on the side window for graphics card cooling-Tool-less drive mounts-Tubing holes for liquid cooling-The interior is painted black The space for mounting prime fans do look a small tight, specifically when installing a huge aftermarket air cpu cooler. In my configurations, the cpu fan blew air to the rear of the case towards a 120mm rear exhaust fan. If you're searching for an above typical spending budget case for a inexpensive build or even a gaming rig, this case functions really nicely...even if you have to purchase a couple of added fans. I know since I've utilized this case to construct both. Granted, it doesn't have all the features of my HAF 932, but it was also about a third of the expense.

Excellent superb no complaints from time to time you have to bend things slightly Cooler master and raid max, and now nxht are the finest in value

Review Date: 09/03/13
Uncomplicated to assemble, with plenty of screws. Also, lots of area for airflow. Came with a broken side panel. Only comes with one fan, which is pretty loud.

Review Date: 08/28/13
This is a good searching case. I consider it look far better than the Antec 300 case. I like the side window and its black inside out. It have sufficient area for cable management. I would recommend a modular power supply. The led blue fan appears seriously nice. Only comes with 1 LED fan. I have to purchase 2 much more fans. Remember this is a budget mid tower case. So if you have a massive heatsink the best fans will not match.

Review Date: 08/20/13
Has a lot of space for my elements, the fan is powerful and looks cool, uncomplicated to take apart and place together. The instructions have been funky cuz all it had have been photographs, but it doesn't take a genius to put components in a case so w/e. This was my 1st create and I couldn't be happier with this case specially for the price.

Neat modern case; appears great; lots of screws non so far

Review Date: 08/16/13
Clean layout, lightweight but sturdy building, well, ventilated, black interior finish, good side window, easy to work on, front panel plugs conveniently positioned on prime edge of case, wide sufficient for a Hyper 212+ cooler, all round a incredibly excellent value for what is a low-finish price tag. I'm satisfied with it.Lack of actual cable management is only an concern if you insist on it, which I don't, and it's Plain Jane looks are a good in my book as properly. It is a mid-tower case and I located I needed thin-profile Ώǘ"] prime 120mm fans to clear the Hyper 212+ cooler with an ASUS M4A79TXD Evo mobo - not a con, just some thing to be conscious of. On/Off and Reset buttons have a squishy feel but function fine, and are tough to see in low light. No biggies.

Good little case. Extremely simple design. Uncomplicated to use screwless drive installation. Front external ports. Thumb screws. A lot of areas to mount more fans. Fantastic air flow Case feels a tiny flimsy and has some sharp edges I had no problems setting this up, creating a program for my daughter. The cables for the front panel ports were of great length but not so long as to be a nuisance. Wiring in this case was produced easier by the configuration of the back panel and drive rack.

Review Date: 07/20/13
This case not only looks amazing, but the craftsmanship is good as nicely. Super high good quality build, no sharp edges on mine. The layout is wonderful, the mesh looks insane, and the airflow is off the charts. Cases should appear wonderful and function fantastic, and this one delivers on each. None whatsoever, purchase it now.

Review Date: 07/14/13
Decent for the price tag. I got it for 25 dollars right after rebate. If it tends to make it that is. Anyway if you just need to have some thing low cost then its excellent lightweight. The metal is light so that implies it can be easily bent if you apply too significantly stress.Like I said it was sent late so I had to do the rebate late. Hopefully it goes through. Only issue poor was that initial delivery was lost in transit I knocked 1 star off since of the delivery mishap. But as usually newegg tries to make things appropriate. I was a bit angered mainly because I cant total my machine given that I had to wait a even though for the case.

Review Date: 07/13/13
Its fantastic case for the price. The fan slots were poorly placed particularly the double on prime. In order to match two fans up there i would have to give up my ram which is pointless. It has the choice for 5 120mm fans, but the finest choice is probably three 120mm fans

Review Date: 07/06/13
wonderful searching, simple to in/out things of the cd drive slots, excellent value. the slots that have to be opened for your mobo are thin metal that you have to sketchily twist off and you can't put them back on if you ever will need/want to. fantastic all round

Review Date: 07/02/13
This case is incredibly fantastic searching it can fit a 12.4 inch video card (WOW) the antec 1200 cant even do thathuge cpu cooler i have the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus and it fits fine and i can use both leading fans and i have it installed on a north south configurationkeeps my Computer cooler then my antec 300 does not weigh a lot but it is challenging Don't Liston to the persons who say the metal is to thin ITS NOT True they just don't know how to set up anythingONLY 1 fan and i under no circumstances applied it to produced a weird sound and was way to bright for mejust but some additional fans and this case will have very good air flow why do situations contain back plates???????????? when the board doesi'll never ever buy a case for myself unless it has prime fans

Review Date: 06/20/13
Good black paint, didn't get reduce by sharp edges although installing this case, nicely constructed, บ mail-in rebate :) Hrmm, I would have to say it only comes with one fan instead of advertised two, but not sufficient to dock an egg. For the value, I would say this case is undoubtedly a great bargain. On top rated of this, I ordered two x APEVIA CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Case Fan, and the colour of LEDs match the front one particular.

Above average strength and sturdiness but still light weight. A lot of spots to mount fans (all sides but 1) and great airflow, with removable mesh filters for dust collection.Sufficient inside area for large video cards.All black inside and out, matte finish so finger prints are a non challenge (maybe on the window). Good viewing window if you're cautious not to scratch it. All about very nice styling, not as well aggressive or gaudy, just appropriate.Tool free of charge mechanisms are pretty nicely created and productive. Included 120mm fan in front, with detachable molex adapter. The factory attached expansion plates can be a bit of a discomfort to remove, each in front and back. The plates have two attached points, and if the motherboard is installed currently, one of them is extremely tricky to break free and not twist into the edge of the motherboard. Some of the paneling is a little flimsy, not truly terrible, but you can't be as well really hard when pushing on the front or back metal.Description says 120mm front and rear fans, but there was not a rear incorporated with my case, as other users have stated. Maybe the description ought to be changed...?You might get some vibration/noise if you use the tool totally free clamps.You could have some concerns with case fan place and running into other components, based on size of fans/components. Power and reset button, as stated by another user, feel a tiny "squishy." Most buttons have small resistance, small, if any wiggle, and give you that incredibly audible "click." These take a tiny more to push, have a small wiggle to them, and click quieter. Not so a lot a damaging point, just a distinction in style. For mid/high variety enthusiasts, in my opinion, this case seriously hits the nail correct on the head. If you're developing for an all out, lug about setup, you will most likely want a complete size case with a little stronger design.All in all, for what I paid for this case, I am incredibly pleased with my acquire. Even if I didn't get the deal I did, I would nonetheless grab a lot more of these, as I have paid about this very same cost for other considerably decrease high quality circumstances (w/ shipping). Almost certainly a single of the very best spending budget cases I've built with.

nice seeking case. appreciate the black inside. lots of fan slots. tooless design, good side panel window, and area for huge video cards not considerably area for cable management, only comes with 1 fan, and the pci slot are break out only slots so you cant reuse them. i personally enjoy the look of the case but would possibly go for a Haf 912 subsequent time for more space and far better cable management.

-Fantastic looks-No tool design-Extended for huge cards-Side window -Quite a few options for case fans-Capable to hide my further cables from my non-modular PSU -Bottom mounted PSU-Good amount of airflow-Lots of space for 2X SLi or CrossfireX -two little pieces of plastic from the front plate clips had been broken upon arrival. Nevertheless fits snug though. So far I am extremely impressed with this case. I know there are quite a few folks that say this case is negative for hiding additional PSU cables, on the other hand I had no difficulty with it. I hid all of mine on the non-windowed side next to the challenging drive bays. They will not match behind the motherboard but match just fine subsequent to the HD bays and cannot be seen.General this is a fantastic case and I am very impressed with the excellent. Ideal mid-tower case on the market place IMO.My rig:AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ three.7GHz8GB DDR2 1066 Patriot Viper IIGalaxy Nvidia GTX 470Asus M4A785-M Motherboard650 Watt Tuniq Potency PSU

It's a extremely affordable case that gives lots of space for cord management based on what you put in it. Came with an abundance of screws and zip ties. Also pretty cool that its fully black. None Would have been nice if it had come with far more case fans. Had to order some further case fans.

Good airflow! I have my i7 at 4GHz with a push/pull H50 and the max I have observed it hit is 68C. I relocated the front 120mm to top above the RAM (barely sufficient room to match more than the dimms). I installed a NZXT 140mm fan in the front (Love the white fan appear) and two 120mm NZXT fans on each and every side of an H50 as exhaust. No other fan necessary! Cable management, only comes with sufficient tool-free locks for two HDD's alternatively of all five. Side fan slots truly distract from the nice window, given that I'm not making use of them. Excellent value, and I'll use this for a secondary develop soon. My principal method is moving into a Phantom! :)

Anything! PS on bottom, Wonderful air flow, awesome cable management, effectively constructed, solid, fits all MB sizes, toolless drive set up is excellent, a joy to assemble. And looks Amazing! No dings scratches scuffs missing parts or broken components. None Finally traded in my old Chieftec monster, looked at circumstances forever but could come across one thing that suited my needs. This case ultimately match the bill. I have used alot of various cases and this 1 is the best so far.
