Reviews

Metal is very thin on top of case and side panels, I mean, the case is Very light weight like 8 pounds, 3.7kg, with all the parts in it it weighs about 14 pounds, Overall Good looking, Good price, NO cable management at all, 4 Stars

from completed build My First Build (On a $600 budget)

Very little room for cable management. But looks nice on the outside

Wow. was not impressed. Price - great, couldn't ask for a cheaper one, and I don't know what I was expecting from a case price like this, but there certainly is other competitors that could top this for the same price. The front USB panel is really weak, but that might be just be walking away of the computer with my headphones plugged in. It became weak, and I think the only thing keeping it there is the superglue I put on mid-build because I knew it wouldn't hold my tyranny. The looks are amazing though, it's a relatively small ATX case, but surely stands out as a good looking one. The emblem is kinda tacky, too. There is also NO cable management options at all. I was kinda surprised when I was building this as a guide I was following said something about Cable Management through holes. If I remove the drive bay or a PCI-E bay I can't put it back sadly, no screw in, it's just ripped off. Lots of cuts, lots and lots. The edges of the metal are a hazard (to me atleast) because of how sharp and thin it is. The case is relativly light but when you have 3 HDDs in it I don't think it matters.

from completed build The Harvester

Budget case with some budget aspects. Only one case fan, top-mounted psu, no top vent (but no top dust hole), no space behind the motherboard wall (but it's a smaller form factor so not unexpected) and the pci slot covers had to be broken off. But for a budget build like this it's more than enough and has a little room to expand. Has front panel usb 3.0 and a neat aesthetic. Four stars but only just, and largely due to the wallet-friendly price.

from completed build Office Build 2016

Super sexy case that wants you to add some led fans to it.

from completed build HTPC

Nice small case that works perfectly for a passive pc. You can attach low rpm fans on the side of the case in which is right above the passive components.
