-Comes with 2 fans
-Easy to build in
Cons - Very Minor/Picky Issues
-Clearance issue with cooler master 240mm aio in the front and Storage Cage
-Cable clearance with the back panel makes the replacement of the back panel a squeeze.
Overall very good quality for a budget case
Motherboard standoff holes had been filled with powdercoat which required attention before being able to install motherboard but that is not a major issue and no reason to put anyone off purchasing.
With an ASUS ROG ATX board fitted the front panel audio connector cable is too short (by about 3") to reach the front audio port on the motherboard if you run it t othe botton of the case and along, it will fit if you tie it diagnoanally across the back of the motherboard tray so be sure to check the motherboard header location before deciding on this case.
On the plus side, its easy to work on, good amount and location of cable management holes and tie-down points to keep things neat. Front panel fans are silent. Fitted 240 AIO into front panel and it reached the CPU socket with plenty of reach left, a 280 rad/AIO would fit easily too. If you wanted to go smaller you could easily fit a 120 AIO in the front or rear. One thing to be wary of is that all the front fan mounting points are threaded (looks like M3 threads), this can make it difficult to mount a fan/rad as I did with the fans behind the front grill of the case and the rad mounted behind the bracket, in this instance I had to drill clearance holes and use the screws supplied with the AIO.
Potentially this could also make an excellent budget case if you are using custom loops too. If you were to leave the top 3 1/2" bay empty it looks like a small res/pump combo could sit on top offset to one side slightly and be able to clear past a 300mm long GPU
I wouldnt recommend fitting a rad in the top as motherboard clearance would be an issue on most boards that have a large heat spreader at the top, also on my Asus board the DIMM slots look like they would conflict with a top rad as well.
Nice look, quite tricky to do cable management.
A solid budget-oriented case. Comes with two LED fans and dust filters so dust doesn't get inside.
beautiful case. May be hard to add custom water cooling, but it was easy to install and looks great with leds. hiding cords is a little difficult but possible
This is a great case to build in. It is professional but also modern. There is space for six fans and even supports water cooling. I wish it came with a rear fan but for the price I couldn't complain. It was easy to work in and was completely tool-less.
My only complaint would be the space for cable management. I struggled a bit to get all my cables to fit in the back panel and for it to shut easily. It was my first build so that might just be my lack of experience.
