1) Before you install anything, I recommend you take off the top of the unit via the 3 screws on the upper inside, where the motherboard would lay.
2) Slide top off and flip over, no need to remove the fan. Inside the top you'll see 6 silver screws. Remove them, and the side pieces will come off. If you look on the side pieces, you'll see 2 casting tabs on each where the fan was set. Just shave them off with a knife. They come off easy and it is simple enough to shave it flat to the plastic again.
3) Re-install sides with screws, slide top back on and lock into place, reapplying screws inside. Now it should run quiet and smooth.
I unfortunately had installed everything before I learned about the fan's issues. Also, the screw-less system for the PCI slots is pretty weak, so I just unscrewed the 3 screws in the back and removed the piece, using the extra screws they gave to more securely put in my video cards.
The HDD and Drive Bay screwless system is pretty cool though, and the box is runnning great and keeping everything very cool.
After all that, I still recommend this unit for sure, if you're willing to do some quick fix-ups that the company chose not to do.
Looking at product descriptions on various sites, I never could figure out how many fans were supposed to come with the case. I ordered mine here on Amazon and it came with 4 fans. The only one it did not have was the fan that could be added behind the motherboard. The fans are fairly quite, and all can be connected to a single 4 pin power plug from the power supply. Non of the fans are speed controllable. With the 4 fans, there is good airflow to keep things cool.
The connectors are fairly cheap. The pins want to push right out the back when you plug something in. The black finish is fairly good. The metal is fairly thin. The side panels are a little awkward to put on. There is very limited cabling possibilities. The case is just a little too narrow to fit the larger 120mm fan tower coolers such as Cooler Master Hyper 212. The tool-less design for the drives is just barely adequate but works. Enthusiasts would not find it acceptable. I have not used the tool-less mechanism for the cards, but it does not look good. You can use a screw to hold the cards. Might be a little awkward to get the screwdriver in there though.
Overall the case is pretty low end, but serviceable. It's best feature is the airflow with 4 fans.
[...] (Edit: Apparently Amazon has censored my review, and removed my comments about dealing with unethical companies. I'm not sure why it was censored, and I don't know whose rear-end they were trying to cover, mine or theirs. I don't know if I should thank them, or scold them.)
I just installed my only expansion card so far. A small IDE card, one of the smallest cards there is.Read more ›
This case does not have anything in the way of cable management, it has nothing in the way of rear panel cpu cooler access, the PCI grills cannot be replaced, and all the included tooless mechanisms are a royal pain to use (I simply removed the PCI slot one; completely useless).
In the time I have owned this case, I've personally worked with four other cases. A crappy Xion case, a Cooler Master HAF 922 Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 (RC-922M-KKN3-GP), a full tower I didn't buy (so I don't remember the name), and two GAMMA Classic Series ATX Mid Tower Interior Steel Chassis (Black). Despite a price difference of 40+ dollars between this case and the NZXT, the NZXT Gamma case is by FAR the better case.
If you're looking for a good case and don't mind the psychological difference, buy the Gamma. If you are looking for a better case and prefer to spend $80+, buy a Cooler Master HAF (922 does nicely) case.
Just don't buy this one like I did.
- The case should has a good ventilation system to remove the heat from hard drives, CPU, video card and motherboard.
- The case should isolates the electrostatic charge.
- Choose a good power supply for the new PC.
Other optional features:
- No. of USB ports, esata, card readers, ....etc
- Case design.
the optional features vary from one to another.
I found this case achieve the basic features and the optional features are fine with me, the only thing that I had to do after buying it, is to buy an air filter for the side fan.

Poor quality sheet metal. The sheet metal in the case is very thin and bends easily. It doesn't fit together quite right. I cut myself several times on this case. Read morePublished on August 29, 2010 by David G. Huss
