Reviews

Pros: Easy to build inside. Modular design with removable hard drive racks. Easy cable management with plenty of space behind motherboard tray and well-positioned cable holes with quality grommets. Cons: Relatively heavy for a mini tower.

from completed build Chimera

This case was a breeze to build in. Everything appears to be removable. The Fan Controller is convenient. Included fans were over-tightened which was causing weird vibrations. Loosening it up and setting the fans to run at 5volts and I can't even hear the PC at idle.

from completed build The Bloody Arc

Good case and fun to work in. The IO front panel is a bit sketchy, feels like I'm going to break it off when I put something in the USB ports. The bottom fan slot causes the rest of the case to make a slight rattling sound, even using vibration dampening rubber screws. Plenty of room for cable management and rubber grommets everywhere. IO connecters were a disappointing multi-color not sleeved all the way up with the black rubber. Great dust proofing, and good quiet hard drive cages. Overall, with only 1 cosmetic defect and a sketchy IO connector I'll still give it 4-stars because of the usability and price.
