Not Bad!


would buy silver stone if I could return this and returns are getting harder and harder to do

Plenty of room for fans

Flimsy Case Frame, cheap rivets, grill type vents that are dented and damaged very easily

All in all, this is a very excellent and well built case, I do recommend it. Don't be scared to but it because there aren't 1,000 reviews!

Very roomy ; Very sturdy ; Nice clear window ; Nicely designed front panel, easy to pop off and replace the default fan ; Since everything is enclosed (The top fans have a nice cover over them, but it doesn't restrict airflow) The case actually makes...

their tool-les swapping of top drives system is weird and i just took them out ; only one small hole towards the top of the left side of the case for your CPU cable. This hole is small. I actually had to take out the mobo and feed the cord through then...

A31 Chaser


Just a suggestion i would really do away with the "5.25 tooless drive bays it works but nothing beats a secure screw fastened mount. Over all this is a great case I love it, glad i got one before they sold out.

cable management holes ; plenty of room ; Nice tooless hard drive bays ; removable hard drive bay (Good for if you want to install a bigger video card. My GTX 760 fits in this case with room to spare) ; My Noctua NH-D14 cooler fits in this case. (Very...

Excellent looking case


Small dent wasnt nice but was the only thing i didnt like.

This was a very nice case. Better looking than i imagined from the picture. I work for a local computer company and was happy with this purchase

The only reason this got 4 eggs instead of 5 is because when i opened it all up the case has a small quarter sized dent in the side case. I managed to pop it out

Not bad, not amazing.


The case had plenty of room through which to route cables. I was pleased with the space under the mobo tray. I also really like how you can remove the hdds from the side without removing your video card. It's lightweight, and attractive. Overall it's...

It's very cheaply assembled. Part of the reason it's light is that the sheet metal is so thin. The only real issue I have had with the case so far is that one of the thumb screws on the side panel was stripped, right out of the box. The others don't...

Best quality and value for money


I would recommend using ATX and not micro ATX motherboards with this case.

Awesome Cable Management ; Very Clean Lines ; Side windows shows only what you need to show ; Every cable used in the case is either black or sleeved ; Ample room for huge Video cards ; Case fans are 3 pin fans

Audio cable


Doesn't have rubber feet....put some on, I did. The audio cable is too short for my motherboard. I purchased an Aprevia item CVTAUDIOE25 extension cable for less than $5.00 on line. This allowed me to hide the cable and solve an issue. Come on people,...

This is to update my previous review. I'm still sold 100% on this case and it's features, especially for the price

Overall Greatness for the price. If your looking for a great case with great airflow dust free airflow i may add! Great expandability. Very well rounded case then look no further! I'm very pleased with this case. Thermal has really got my attention...

Great cable management, has a cut out behind the cpu to make installing aftermarket heatsinks/fans alot easier and without bending the motherbaord. Really happy to see them put filters in this case to keep the dust out. "I hate dust ; Love the idea...

Not too many but here are a few ; Would have liked a little less plastic, but hey i bought this for 65 bucks! You cannot beat that ; Also it only came with 2 standoffs?? not a big deal but i don't see the point of even including them if they are only...

Great Case! Quality Very Good!


It's a great case for the price (less then $100). Plenty of room to go custom and the size is just right.

Very well thought out design, nice layout, great cable management and overall very nice looking case. I like the look and feel of the front controls and having USB 3.0 on the front is a nice touch. This case give you lots of room to play around in,...

A little on the light side. Not a real con for some but others may find this to be a sign of cheapness. The removable drive bays are kinda flimsy plastic and most of the enclosure is also plastic but this doesn't affect the overall quality for me....
