The removable drive bays help get...
Strengths: Has a great look and nice color. The removable drive holders are great. The dust filter is also helpful. Large 120 fans move a lot of air.
Weakness: A little cramped but manageable on the inside. A better instruction manual with more pictures would be helpful.
The removable drive bays help get everything in the case. The rails that attach to the 5.25" drives have tabs that go towards the front of the case. The front needs to be taken off to put a 5.25" drive in. They just slide in then lock into place. It is a little scary taking off the front if 5.25" drives are in but it will come off if you push down on the front a little bit.

Strengths: Well built, nice "pop out" drive bays. I already had a hard drive go, and these bays make it a breeze to change them out.
Weakness: Instructions could be a little better sorting out the hardware that comes with it. It was a little tough to figure out which piece of hardware went where for my first time.
This was the first time I built my own PC, and overall, I like this case. With all of the drive bays out of that case, there was plenty of room to install the mother board and to do all of the connections prior to the drive bays going back in. The only real problem that I had was with the 3.5" floppy bay. For some reason, the top side of the floppy drive was being pushed up against the case and...

This was the first time I built my own PC, and overall, I like this case. With all of the drive bays out of that case, there was plenty of room to install the mother board and to do all of the connections prior to the drive bays going back in.
The only real problem that I had was with the 3.5" floppy bay. For some reason, the top side of the floppy drive was being pushed up against the case and causing the floppy to make a "grinding" noise. So all I did to remedy it was to take my Dremal tool and grind the top side of the floppy opening away and that cured everything.
Overall, I'd buy another one.

The front vent provides the only intake. It c
onsists of about 150 6mm round holes--about 6.5 square inches (much less restric
ted than for most cases). The front louvre has seven openings whose areas add up
to (only) about 1.5 square inches. The "filter" is about like a heavy-duty no
-see-um mosquito net on the inside of the front panel behind the louvre. It is k
ind of a joke because there is also a 4"x5/8" hole at the bottom of the front
panel, so air can bypass the filter and pass directly into the 120mm front vent.
But there is plenty of room under the panel to place a piece of a furnace filte
r over the front vent, so you can actually install an effective filter for all i
ncoming air. You could enlarge the bottom hole to about 7 sq in without affectin
g the appearance.
The PSU is very quiet, but the 120mm is not very quiet--a speed control would be
Each of the two USB connections is by four individual wires, which implies a ted
ious installation. After you have the connectors in place, super-glue a flat too
thpick to the side of each of the two four-connector arrays. Then you won't hav
e to sort them again in case you have to disconnect your USB cable. The connecto
rs are easily removed from the toothpicks in case you change to a motherboard th

I've complained quite a bit here, but ...if you buy this case, you will regard
it with affection.

Nice case for the price. I have had no trouble with it at all. I installed everything myself inside and didn't fry anything. Very good case overall.

Strengths: Air-filters, Pop-out HD racks
Weakness: Tight inside
Decent case, came with a bad psu and fried 2 motherboards, cpu, and memory. Careful, and always test your psu before you using it. A psu tester should it as good, but it was sending out pulses way to high for a board.
