    Pros: Easy to build inside. Modular design with removable hard drive racks. Easy cable management with plenty of space behind motherboard tray and well-positioned cable holes with quality grommets. Cons: Relatively heavy for a mini tower.

    Ok, I think this is a great case, but I'm still giving it 3 stars because it's not worth more than $85 in my opinion.

    Pros:

    • Has a window
    • Great thermals, comes with dust covers for top, front, and bottom of case
    • Nice rubber grommets for wire management
    • Great fan controller; 5V, 7V, 12V settings. The 5V is almost silent with the included FD fans.
    • Solid side/back panels
    • Comes with two 120mm Fractal Design fans and one 140mm FD fan

    Cons:

    • For the price, I expected way more like a clear tempered glass window(I should have read the description closer) instead of a cheap tinted plastic window.
    • The front panel feels cheap; made of some plastic. Looks nice, but feels cheap.
    • The USB 3.0 ports don't work on the case I got. I've checked the cable that plugs into the motherboard, but I don't know why it doesn't work.

    I really don't like full or ATX cases. So I go with, for my case, the best MicroATX Tower. It has pretty much space for cable management. But it only supports three fans, I need 6.

    The only reason why i buy this case is because of its dust filter, its side window that can be replaced and its form factor. haha, but kidding aside, this case can support water-cooling and it has many positive reviews. It can also support long GPU like the GTX 1000 series, which i'm looking forward for an update.

    Versatile case for a excellent build. Cooling is outstanding. Very silent operation when fan voltage is set to 7V with built in fan controller

    from completed build The Bloody Arc

    Good case and fun to work in. The IO front panel is a bit sketchy, feels like I'm going to break it off when I put something in the USB ports. The bottom fan slot causes the rest of the case to make a slight rattling sound, even using vibration dampening rubber screws. Plenty of room for cable management and rubber grommets everywhere. IO connecters were a disappointing multi-color not sleeved all the way up with the black rubber. Great dust proofing, and good quiet hard drive cages. Overall, with only 1 cosmetic defect and a sketchy IO connector I'll still give it 4-stars because of the usability and price.

    This case was a breeze to build in. Everything appears to be removable. The Fan Controller is convenient. Included fans were over-tightened which was causing weird vibrations. Loosening it up and setting the fans to run at 5volts and I can't even hear the PC at idle.
