Review Date: 09/06/13
Is really distinctive with best deal with, which feels strong and not risky. Other people are amazed and impressed to see it. The case is fairly heavy gauge steel - not as tinny feeling as some low-cost situations. The face is rather bland - would be good for at least a minor slash of colour or chrome or brushed metal I have three of these circumstances now.

Good venting, bays are effectively placed, deal with is solid, layout good all in all. Usb cables are not long enough to reach the bottom of the Mobo if that is exactly where your headers are, FYI. I would get again

This was my initially build, and I chose this for the look, the space, the audio/USB ports on the best, the price tag and yes, the deal with. Deal with is strong and practical, not inexpensive at all. Straightforward to get in, effortless to move around, despite getting a micro type element. Yet another Extremely Key constructive: it holds an ATX sized PSU! Like so quite a few others, the PSU. I knew it would be adequate for my standard construct for a time, but just barely, and regrettably the fan kicked out following only a couple months. Rather than hassle with it I just identified a wonderful deal on a 500W Thermaltake from newegg, tossed in a couple fans, and now I don't have to be concerned about it. Just get a new PSU when you get the case and you're very good to go. Other than that, I'm really satisfied. A few issues I identified in other reviews that genuinely helped me and I want to repeat right here: It takes an ATX PSU, a key plus!; it takes an 80 or 120mm fan on the front, an 80mm on the side replacing the CUP exhaust; can't use the second HDD bay if you put a front fan in; need to have to push your HDD all the way in to hook up the mobo power, then pull the HDD back to install - this makes the cords a bit tight, but workable. Overall Incredibly PLEASED for my 1st develop! Would hugely recommend as a very first timer.

Like the deal with and appreciate how quiet and cool the case stays. I was running Globe of Warcraft and Alt Tabbing to Crysis while transferring files (stress test). And in general the CPU & GPU never ever got about 50C. I was teaching my wife about developing a Pc and she kept asking stuff and i kept saying, " You just gotta know". This case's directions had been useless so if you dont know what youre carrying out, do some study

little, portable, low noise. rear fan is only 90mm not 120mm. not a large deal Ideal tiny transportable case out there. I used numerous of them with no challenge.

Review Date: 07/19/13
The case was economical, good carrying manage, sturdy for the value. The power button occasionally would stick (nothing that you cant fix oneself with a little spring), immediately after about a year the front headphone and mic ports burnt out. The apparent lack of a fantastic power provide, but to be fair it was ุ and putting in a fantastic top quality Thermaltake was no challenge. This case was one particular of these cases that I had that ya knew all the cons acquiring into it and none of them have been such a huge deal as to truly regret getting the case. It has served me effectively for college exactly where the carrying deal with made move in nice. The only cause I don't use it anymore is i just out grew it, necessary one thing with ATX and at least four difficult drive bays with fantastic ventilation that could nonetheless fit dual XFX Radeon HD 5830

Review Date: 07/17/13
Simple to work with. I really like the prime mounted usb/audio ports and the manage makes moving it around easy. Handy notch for opening the case. I purchased five of them for workplace computer systems and so far so fantastic. 1 power supply burned out right after six months. I wish the case opened with thumb screws instead of common ones.

Review Date: 07/06/13
Case develop excellent is great for the price tag. Feels strong when you get anything installed. The handle is nice and you can carry the completed rig around effortlessly. for a micro-ATX case this factor is truly quite roomy. The Power Supply included with this case is not fantastic. The PSU does not have an 8-pin power connector that practically all new motherboards need to have. I stuck the four-pin connector on my mobo and it appears to perform ok, but an eight-pin would have been nice. Also has a really restricted number of power connectors and I have had a handful of freeze ups and random restarts that are most probably triggered by the PSU. There are also absolutely no noise dampening features for this case, if you are utilizing a typical difficult drive it just bolts into spot and you will get a lot of vibration noise when it is seeking. For the price tag this is not a large deal at all. For the price of this case and PSU you can't anticipate any bells and whistles, this is just a uncomplicated simple case and a barely usable energy supply. For the value t is a very good value.

Review Date: 07/04/13
This case came the day it was supos to..there exactly where no scratch's dents or dings in it, my motherboard and every thing just fits it appears excellent. I would recomend this case to any individual whos seeking to make a little portable powerhouse none that i can see ive have it significantly less than a week and already brought it like five areas (love this deal with)

Review Date: 06/06/13
The case is smaller sized than I thought. The handle is really handy for moving about offices and manipulating. The top rated front USB ports are the reason I purchased this case and they are in a fantastic location. The employees for whom I create these machines, Appreciate the ports becoming so quickly accesible. I had no challenges developing some good low cost office machines with these cases. With the USB / Audio ports on the front/top, the cables inside have to cross the entire motherboard in order to connect (at least on the ASUS mb's I purchased) I'm not a cable "neat freak" so it doesn't bother me, but they are kind of in the way when adding expansion cards. This is genuinely a mini-tower and you have to be cautious of the order in which you set up parts to make confident you have space to move about. But anything fit for me.

Review Date: 06/03/13
Extremely straightforward to function with, cable management is effortless with this case Wish they still carred the full side towers

Review Date: 05/16/13
Good manage on top. Great high quality for the cost. Almost no difficulties with hardware installation. Some of the metal is a little sharp. The wiring for the audio jack headers and USB ports was just extended enough to connect to board. Excellent case for the value. I would acquire this once more.

Review Date: 04/29/13
Really cool operating, capability to install extra 120mm or 90mm in front of case. Effortless to install MOBO. Deal with on top is very sturdy and I genuinely like the USB on leading. I would like far more SATA connections on PWR supply, but for the dollars, it's a steal. Clean and uncomplicated item.

Review Date: 04/16/13
Case has lots of space and is uncomplicated to install. The front comes off very easily, but is not loose. Good cost and all the screws you need to have. The USD/ Audio jacks are on the top. The audio jacks are not operating for me. I am not particular if this is my mobo or the case. Regardless, I typically use the back, but for a LAN case it would be nice to get them to operate. This case would be ideal with a 500W PSU and worth the added 10-15 dollars. This is a extremely nice case for the dollars and I seriously like the integrated deal with and the look of the case. I also place a blue LED 120mm fan in the front and it illuminates the front and interior nicely with a blue glow. The energy button glows green btw. I would highly advocate this case.

Review Date: 04/03/13
Performs. Sturdy Handle. Ive by no means had any troubles with it. I've moved it around a bit and it holds up. The sides look a tiny flimsy when theyre not on the case. Cooling/Airflow could be superior I've built two systems in it and its forked relatively properly. There arent numerous fans and airflow could be a bit superior. When the side panels are off, they bend a little and the case feels flimsy but with them on its sturdy. I've moved it around taking it to a buddies residence about twice a month and its held up and remained solid.

Review Date: 04/02/13
Sweet case! Good Deal with!!!! Average weight for a mid tower. Surprising excellent for a sub โ case! Energy Provide a tiny on the weak side, I replaced with an Antec 500 Earthwatt just for the hell of it.Otherwise, it's nearly the best case for me! This has been a excellent case!! For my next make pretty quickly, I will almost certainly try the mATX version.....790gx , 9950 , 640black , 4gb-ddr2齠)

Review Date: 02/14/13
The handle on top is incredibly sturdy and handy, especially if you're a LAN partier. The case layout inside and out is incredibly intelligent, perfect quantity of slots for what I need. Other folks could not be so pleased with it though. Also, the USB slots on top are good for my setup!! Only 2 three.5 inch slots, so if you plan on possessing additional HD's than that, you'd greater get a five 1ǚ adapter and only 1 CD-ROM drive. 300w power supply is fairly wimpy, but if you're a gamer you already have at least a 550w sitting about like me. The plastic piece on the side for the heatsink fan is worthless, get a fan in location of it. Overall genuinely intelligent case style. I place a 120mm fan with blue LED's to add some colour on the front (yes it has holes for it, and it fits excellent), also replaced the side plastic vent for the heatsink fan with an 80mm blue LED fan. Adds some good colour to make a actually professional seeking case. Good obtain! Keep in mind, this is for MICRO ATX BOARDS, normal motherboards won't fit. I purchased this for my BIOSTAR P4M900-M4, works ideal! Newegg has fantastic shipping and packaging, as usually!

The leading carrying-handle is Wonderful. It makes moving the laptop a a lot, considerably less complicated job. I'm also extremely pleased with the sturdiness of the situation, and the ease with which both sides come off right after removing the screws at the back. I had some difficulties with receiving a WAN PCI card to match both the acceptable space of the box and the slot on the motherboard (an ECS GeForce6100SM-M). It's in now, but I suspect the connection's still as well loose mainly because the card is not being recognized in the BIOS as it must. It's an excellent situation, even with the PCI card thing. Though some reviewers had troubles with the audio and USB port wire getting brief, I didn't, and there's essentially much less "wire mess" in the end than I was ready to deal with.

Review Date: 12/19/12
Handle appears sturdy and the front panel comes off really straightforward. It fits my Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H very good. And the fans included with are quiet. metal seams a tiny bit thin, but for this cost, not an issue. Would use once again when require arises.

Review Date: 12/18/12
Looks great and layout is quite very good. USB ports on major is fantastic for these who retain rig beneath desk. Produced for straightforward first develop. Effectively, the PSU runs hot and is not that fantastic (I know, this is to be expected with integrated PSU). The other big con is the 90mm fan in the back. It moves a great quantity of air but it is just as well loud for me. I'll be replacing it.

Review Date: 12/08/12
Nice case for the price. Handle works properly every thing fits snug like it must. USB ports on best along with audio ports the audio plugged into my the MSI K9N6PGM2-V with no problem. The PSU was DOA to RMA this you have to send almost everything back (case & PSU). After anything was installed I located the PSU to be DOA I would roll the dice on this one particular once again. Subsequent time I get this case I will order a spare PSU in case this is a rush develop (aren't they all?) Newegg buyer service saved be the difficulty of pulling almost everything out of the case and credited me for a similar worth PSU. Thanks Newegg, I knew there was a reason I hold coming back!

A lot of room for a micro ATX and a total size video card if required (you'd lose a tough drive slot if you place a total size card in tho, what takes place in a Micro...). Great area of front USB/sound, manage is super practical, mounting holes in the front for either 80mm or 120mm fan, front bezel comes off very quickly... I've had circumstances with handles ahead of and when you have one particular you'll be tricky pressed to go back to a single with no so I def. jumped on this a single when I saw it. Yes the metal is a little thin, you know what IT IS A ุ CASE! If you assume you might reduce yourself on low cost metal, be added cautious or wear gloves or both... The metal is plenty thick enough for what it demands to do, hold drives in location. For ุ you truly can't do any better. For my Gigabyte motheroboard, there was no location to place a mounting peg for the ideal center screw which is proper by the PSU/IDE/RAM on that board. Just had to make certain to support the rear of the board in that location when plugging in the 24 pin energy, IDE for my re-utilised DVD-RW and the RAM. Not enough of an situation to eliminate an egg due to the fact just about every motherboard is diverse... Initial off, folks complaining about an integrated 300w PSU in a ุ case need to have to cease crying. Clearly it is going to be junk, not to mention fairly considerably any program built currently should have a 500w for a basic web surfer/light gamer and on up from there so not sure why ppl are even utilizing it. Get a Corsair PSU and forget about it, the 500w builder unit is on sale ideal now...The con I integrated is me getting nitpicky and like I talked about, not enough to shed an egg. There is a TON of room in this factor for a micro tower and airflow appears pretty fantastic, far better if you get a modular power provide but nevertheless not poor hiding all the wires of a non-modular in the unused floppy drive bays which is what I did.

Review Date: 11/28/12
A incredibly solid construct case for the dollars. Quite good for enterprise class use the handle is a very good touch. As noted with other evaluations the interior of the case is a tiny on the sharp side. Ouch! If you are looking for a great case for organization or SHO you can't go wrong with this case.

Review Date: 11/12/12
Integrated all parts necessary. Exceptional hunting case. Haven't employed energy provide. Poor guidelines. E2200, 160 GB HDD, 550W PSU, 2 GB DDR2-5400

Review Date: 10/23/12
Good style, enjoy the handle. 1st time builder and this case produced items easy! Looks great in individual, classy w/o getting to showy. Wish it had a 1394 port on the front/top. Running good and cool. Added an 80mm fan in front of the HDs...
