Plus: Good quality for the price, all metal edges folded nicely, decent space for cable management. Minus: The tool-less 5.25 external drive mounting system is fiddly and tinny.

First of all, there were two 120MM fan mounts in the front of the case which was a big plus for me since I was going to use 2 purple LED fans to add a nice finish to the case. However, the USB ports prevent a second fan from going in. It literally blocks the fan and keeps it from snapping shut. If you look at the build that I used this case in, I included a picture so you can get a better look at what I mean. In addition, the tool-less design for optical drives is flimsy and took some fiddling to get it to close correctly. Additionally, the case side panels are very thin and can warp easily making them a little difficult to put back on. Overall, I am rating this case 3 stars because it is still a good case for the price, especially if you are only wanting to use 1 fan in the front and because, while annoying, the tool-less design does work.

I wouldn't recommend this case; while the build quality is solid, the cable management is awful, the design is flawed, and it only has space for two fans. I would pick a NZXT Source 210 Elite over this.
