Very nice case for the price. The only dust filter was for the power supply, which is probably as much as you can expect from a $50 case. It was relatively easy to work with, but the cable management slots were mediocre, but again $50 case. To get the cover for one of the 5.25 bay off required a hammer and 20 minutes of work which I guess is fine if you don't use CDs but infuriating if you do. The only other issue I found with it was the power LED on the front top of the case, which, no joke, is about as bright as a fluorescent light and either requires you to simply not plug it in or put a pad of sticky notes on it.
The case was definitely nice for a "cheap" model, 2 case fans included, though the front one has no filter (what do you expect.) The cable for HDAudio connecting to the bottom left part of of this micro Motherboard is a heck of a stretch, im actually contemplating just removing the HDAudio connector for the top of the case. He only has a USB headset anyway.
Another really cool plus was the second case fan i the front actually has a built in 4pin or mobo connector. I thought that connector was a nice added touch. Fan sound is pretty low. Side panel isn't entire side but big enough to see the 1060.
All in all i had never even seen this case and somehow stumbled upon it while traversing newegg and am pleasantly surprised. Its also pretty light / yet rigid where it doesn't seem like its going to warp.
When it arrived from NewEgg, All of the mounting hardware was scattered throughout the case. Standoffs everywhere. Cables coming from the front IO don't really have a good path to get to the motherboard, so i just went over it. Looks pretty good for a case i got for $20 though.
EDIT: The power button has started to stick inside of the case. Had to use a screwdriver to un jam it on a few occasions.
Got this off amazon for 35$ and its awesome, plenty of room, looks nice, 2 fans included, and it has good cable management (that I didnt use to its full potential) and made working with this PSU a little more bearable.
An amazing case for $40. I can't recommend it enough for someone with an ATX build and on a budget. Just dont get it for an mATX like I did, because it leaves ALOT of room!
Both of my front audio ports are smashed. They broke too easy. The side panel scratches too easy but thats pretty much to be expected of a sub $50 case, if you really need a solid and heavy built case for cheap, grab this puppy.
I really should have slept on this decision. It's not an unflattering case, but it's not wholly beautiful either. It's really what you get for a cheap case.
It's kinda harder to put on the back panel if you have a non modular PSU.
The freedom with cables in this case is NOT very good. It's a bit ugly to look inside but it's okay for a start and I'm going to switch to the S340. I'm giving this a 3 stars due to the high prices on this case (was at 60$ in July, August, then 40$, 45$, in September!).
This deserves to stay at the price it's at right now, 31$.
