Great case for the price. 4 case fans (120mm) and 1 side-panel fan (200mm) included. It looks nice from the outside, though the inside is a bit ''meh''. The installation is easy and thanks to a right-side panel that is also removable, you don't have to remove the MOBO to add a CPU cooler backplate for the screws. The cable management is alright, maybe missing a few holes to put the cables through. The temperature reader is more of a funny gimmick than something you'll use, and I recommend putting it on an hard drive, because you can't rely on it for anything else, really. Finally, the fans work really well, but they don't have any 4-pins connectors for the MOBO, so they run at full speed all the time. Luckily, they aren't very noisy so it's not too bad.

The more I have to use this case, the less I like it. It's sad because I really thought it was a nice case. I think it's the only thing I bought for this build that I'm not satisfied with. On paper, the Cable management options looked good, but in reality, the top part near the CPU and the RAM has a couple of holes, but my H80i GT completely obstruct them. The case comes with 4x120mm case fans and 1x200mm side-panel fan. It's nice to have all that for the price, but none of the fans have connectors for the motherboard, so they run at full speed all the time. The side-fan has to be removed if you plan on buying any bigger CPU coolers, because it's too close to the motherboard. Another thing is that the green LEDs are on the fan, so if you remove it, you also remove the LEDs.

A couple of reviews seemed to say that the LCD temperature display in the front didn't work and stuff, but I didn't have that problem. However, I think the temperature sensor is useless and it would've been much better to have a cable that connects to the Motherboard's USB ports, like the CPU cooler. Couple that with a piece of software that allows you to decide what component's temperature should be displayed in the front and you'd had something actually useful.

I'll leave the rating at 4/5, but honestly, it's more of a 3.5/5.

Not awful, but definitely could have been better. The fans and the LEDS offer no control whatsoever, you need to break off pieces on the back to expose the I/O ports of any expansion cards, and could use a little more cable management space. That said, you do get some nice features for what you pay for. You get 5 fans, one lights up. You get a USB3.0 up front, it's got a cool temperature readout.
