    This was a decent case for what you paid. It looks good, nothing flashy about it at all but very minimalist. However, it is a pain to build in. Forget about cable management and good luck figuring out how to mount your drives if you have two.

    great budget case for the money. Best 20 dollar case I have worked with. It has plenty of room to work in and it allows for fairly decent flexibility in parts orientation. The HDD mounts are weird.

    This is tough to rate. There's zero extra space to work with; you have to plan your cable layout and even then there's no room to operate; and it's a top-PSU case with a dinky 80mm exhaust fan. You'll probably have to remove that fan in order to get the motherboard installed correctly. The included fans are just OK and the front fan has to draw from a small opening under the front cover. At least one front panel cable (HD audio) is too short to run along the bottom of the motherboard, while another (the power switch cable) is so long that it's hard to keep out of the front fan. On the plus side, it's cheap, reasonably solid for the price, has no wrist-slicing sharp edges, the screw holes line up, and it's an inch or so thinner than many other mATX cases. And, it's cheap. If I had to mount a 3.5" hard drive in it, I'd probably be taking off a star.

    2 or at best 3 stars on an absolute scale, but one more for value. Not for the inexperienced or cable management obsessed builder.

    Like the case and it does what it needs too. Nice red LED. Has 2 fans but I added a 3rd on the side for airflow with no mods. Looks good and takes up little space but tough to work in. Left side panel has cut out run wiring through. I could not fit a 3.5 inch hard drive in the drive bad with dual ram installed. Had one mounted on ssd bracket on side but was blocking side fan soo I went with a 2.5 inch wd black for extra storage with ssd. Nice looking case but would go bigger unless size is a necessity.
