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.

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.

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.

The only reason why i buy this case is because of its dust filter, its side window that can be replaced and its form factor. haha, but kidding aside, this case can support water-cooling and it has many positive reviews. It can also support long GPU like the GTX 1000 series, which i'm looking forward for an update.

Versatile case for a excellent build. Cooling is outstanding. Very silent operation when fan voltage is set to 7V with built in fan controller

Ok, I think this is a great case, but I'm still giving it 3 stars because it's not worth more than $85 in my opinion.

Pros:

  • Has a window
  • Great thermals, comes with dust covers for top, front, and bottom of case
  • Nice rubber grommets for wire management
  • Great fan controller; 5V, 7V, 12V settings. The 5V is almost silent with the included FD fans.
  • Solid side/back panels
  • Comes with two 120mm Fractal Design fans and one 140mm FD fan

Cons:

  • For the price, I expected way more like a clear tempered glass window(I should have read the description closer) instead of a cheap tinted plastic window.
  • The front panel feels cheap; made of some plastic. Looks nice, but feels cheap.
  • The USB 3.0 ports don't work on the case I got. I've checked the cable that plugs into the motherboard, but I don't know why it doesn't work.

I really don't like full or ATX cases. So I go with, for my case, the best MicroATX Tower. It has pretty much space for cable management. But it only supports three fans, I need 6.
