I'm very satisfied with this case.
The case is made of very light gauge metal so it is a little bit flimsy, but this is expected in an inexpensive case so I will not fault it for that. The front panel though is attractive and comes with a large 120mm fan and dust cover which is a nice touch in a cheap case.
The case is very small so don't expect to fit multiple harddrives and multiple GPUs in this thing, but it can fit a high end GPU and a mATX board and short tower cooler. Massive tower coolers will not quite fit but the cooling in the case is good enough for a high end GPU and an overclocked CPU so the only thing you can't have is a lot of drives.
The only thing I can fault the case for is the location of the power button and ports on the bottom right side of the case sticking out to the right. It would be better if this pointed forward but they designed this case to sit on your desk and I guess it makes sense in that position, though I never put my computer on my desk.
First off, I do not show up as having purchased this case as the ones I purchased from Amazon are the older variant that is USB2 only. The new version has USB 3 and was not available on Amazon when I got mine, so they were purchased at that Egg store...
Anyway, I have used both versions of this case now, I built about 30 new machines for my office using this case and overall I'm very happy with this case. There are some minor issues and it is by no means perfect, but for the money I've never been so happy with a budget case. I used standard ATX motherboards, and standard CPU coolers for i5 processors. There is room for bigger CPU coolers and the like wither reason, and cooling has been great for our normal uses. Case is quiet, looks good in the office and has been easy to build when working on getting them done too.
I like the removable hard drive tray on the side, it is unusual but works very well. I used all SSD drives and they mounted just fine, the overall build went great with no issues for room in my basic builds.Read more ›
Front fan is good quality. Quiet and moves a lot of air, and the white blades look good behind the front foam.
Paint is nice, doesn't look cheap.
Side mounted hard drives are easier to access than reaching inside a case.
Power supply screw locations were a little off, making power supply installation a headache. (Tried two PSUs to ensure it was this case that was off).
Front panel covers aren't cut very well
Power LED is equivalent to a thousand forces of a million suns
I'm not used to micro-atx cases, so it felt a little cramped to me. But glad I went with it now that it's sitting on my desk. Has a 3.5" drive bay adapter installed so you can mount a card reader or third hard drive. The single front fan is quiet and looks to be high quality. It looks expensive, and the power LED doubles as primary lighting for the room.
Highly recommend, my only regret is I only bought one since great cases are hide to find especially for a great price.

Like the looks.
Like the fact it has foam behind the honycomb grill (really for looks) but if you do the fans right, it will act as a nice filter. Read more
My biggest beef with this case is that the hard disk apparently only fits into the 5.25" bays where one usually puts CD/DVD drives. Read morePublished on March 10, 2013 by hurtstotalktoyou
