This is the only part of this build that I regret. It's a nice looking case, a little flimsy. This thing is completely terrible for cable management, but I did the best I could with it. There was only one fan included which was kind of lame, so I installed 2 additional Corsair 120MM fans in the case for extra cooling. After instant discount and mail in rebate it was only $29.99... so for what I paid, I'm happy with it for now.

My friend has this case from an IBUYPOWER prebuilt. This case really made me appreciate my NZXT S340. There is almost no cable management options in this case. I was able to do a little bit using motherboard mounting holes as we are using a MicroATX board.

I can't fault this case too much for features as I believe it is an older unit. No front USB 3.0, but the board we purchased has plenty of 3.0 ports so this shouldn't be a problem.

I really only had two issues of note while building:

  1. Had to leave the SSD loose for the time being as I could not find a way to mount it in the available bays.
  2. Fans included by IBUYPOWER are molex only, so I had to use a 6 pin to molex cable to provide direct power to them.

Other than the lack of cable management the aesthetics of the case are actually nice. This would be a great case for a home server, NAS, or other similar setup due to the size and the amount of available hard drive bays.
