For such a cheap case I almost want to rate it at 4 stars just because something so inexpensive shouldn't be so good. Maybe the other shoe will drop at some point, but really it hasn't yet.
The only negative thing I can say is that for my personal use as a gaming HTPC this case is a bit big. But it's a full ATX case, and I knew that going in so I can't really ding it for that. But really, airflow is good, the fans seem to move enough air and are whisper quiet (the LED effect is pretty cool too), cable management was pretty solid. This thing really is awesome.
Inexpensive but very useful for cable management. Also blue on black with 2 blue LED fans. Not much more to ask for.
Good cable management and looks good.
This is probably the best budget case out there at the moment. Great design and what not and even comes with two Blue LED fans.
This case Looks and is Amazing for the Price it comes with 3 2.5 inch trays for SSDs, ad 4 Hard Drive bays that are tooless which makes it much easier to Swap out, the Cable management is not the best but for this price point it is kind of a blessing to have because everything inside of it looks cleaner instantly
Great case especially considering the price. Lots of airflow, comes with 2 LED case fans that are qiuet, and plenty of spaces for up to 4 more fans if needed on the top and on the clear viewing window on the side. The blue power LED on the front cluster is annoyingly bright so I ended up covering it so I won't blind myself. Looks great and the mid tower size makes it nice and compact .
Cable management was pretty good, however I wish there was more room to run cables near the top of the mobo that was not available with this case, everything must be run from the right side or bottom.
An affordable case that has a decent amount of features and comes with LED fans that certainly added a wow factor in the eyes of my client.
Tool-less hard drive and optical drive bays make it easy to add or switch drives out.
Cable management was decent, you may struggle when building in this with a lower-end non-modular PSU and the great bundle of cables that comes with. It can be a little difficult to fit the back panel back on in that scenario.
The cables and connectors for the front IO panel completely prevent use of the top optical drive slot and make you do some funky cable bending to be able to use the two lower ones.
The front fan is mounted in the middle, seems to be no option of moving it up/down to influence airflow (but maybe I'm just missing something), but the hard drive cages aren't removable anyways, so it'll be pretty obstructed no matter what.
The LED fans are a bit of a red herring in that the front panel's power and disk activity LEDs are much, much brighter, and will basically illuminate whatever is above it like a flashlight, even if that something is the ceiling 10 feet above. If this PC is in the bedroom you're probably gonna have to turn it off if you want any sleep.
Sadly, this is my least favorite piece in the build. While I do like the design of the case, and the front and back fan with LED's, it does have some shortcomings in my opinion. The rear fan cable is really short. I had to run the cable over my GPU instead of behind the case due to the short cables. The front fan cable is a little short as well, but manageable. The side window feels like cheap plastic and scratches super easily. If you want fans on the side pannel, then you will need an extremely low profile aftermarket cooler, or run the stock one. It does have space for 4 fans, 3 if you use an aftermarket cooler like I did. The USB 3.0 cable reaches the mobo no problem. However, if you don't have the front port for your 3.0 right next to your main one, then your front 3.0 port is useless. Overall, the case is fine, bit this is the first thing I'm going to upgrade. 3/5
The look was exactly what I was looking for, and supports everything you would need to get a basic PC going. Drawback include the slightly limited cable management back space and slots on the left sides of the motherboard, lack of rubber stoppers on cable management slots, and the non-existent basement of the case. Also the top slot for optical devices is unusable as the wires for the switch, LED and USB inputs come down through that space.
Pretty good for a budget case and it looks pretty sexy, but there are a few problems. First off, I made the mistake of installing the motherboard in before looking properly at the cable management options. There isn't any proper space for you to run the CPU power cable through. There's a tiny little crack above where the motherboard would be, but that's it. Second, the drive bay at the very top is blocked by cables from the front panel. A real pain in the ***, so I had to install it on the bottom to make it look alright. Finally... WHY THE HELL ARE THE GRILLS ON THE SIDE WINDOW DIFFERENT!?!? SURE IF YOU WANT THEM THERE FINE, GO FOR IT, BUT THE GRILLS AND HOLES ARE DIFFERENT! GAH! All in all though, it's a nice case apart from those few "design flaws". 4/5.
