One word: ROOMY. The case feels sturdy, the metal nice and brushed, satisfactorily thick to me.

I bought it for $30 (originally $35, down to $30 with a $10 NCIX coupon code) and underestimated its size. Nine inches wide, 17 3/4 inches tall, and 20 1/3 inches deep. Comes with two 3-pin 140mm Fractal Design case fans, although it can hold up to six fans of either 120/140mm size. It can also do radiators, one on the front and the other on the top. At $14 a pieceNewegg, this case under $40 is very worthwhile.

It comes with a HDD plate. One side holds 3.5" drives, SDDs on the other; six in total, plus two behind the mobo plate. The HDD plate is very sturdy once everything is screwed in, so no trouble there. The optical drive bay covers are removable and replaceable.

BTW, my GPU is 11.75in. and this case can take it no problem. It can handle up to 16 inches. Even with a HDD installed in the middle place, there's about a half-inch clearance between the two.

One troubling this about this case is the length of the HD Audio cable. HDA pins are located on the left lower corner of my ATX motherboard, and the supplied cable only reaches when taken out from behind the mobo place and placed around my GPU. Also, the top metal does arc in a little, but under a desk, who cares?

Overall, if you can find this case for under $40, GET IT. GET IT NOW. You will probably never EVER run out of room in this case. Five stars from this budget builder.

Great value. It came with 2 super quiet fans already installed and plenty of room to work inside of.
