Easily the best case to build an entry level pc into

Strengths:

-the sound deadening in the case is amazing, as it is in my design D. -air flow is amazing, with an 80mm on the back, and a 120 on the front this case had such a good push pull that you could stick a piece of paper to the side vent on the panel and it would hold. -super easy to work in, a little tight if you have big hands like myself, but was still a pleasant build experience. -build quality is nice, you can feel they used good materials, although there is a few spots where the metal is slightly flimsy.

Weaknesses:

-there is limited drive mounting options. I was only able to mount a sata ssd, and a 2gb spinning bucket of rust. m.2 will be needed to get the most storage possible -the case is spacious length wise, but an inch to narrow, basically you need a gpu where the power pins come from the rear of the card.

Additional Comments:

Ive built two systems in this case, one in a usb 2.0 version, and one in the 3.0 version. The first one impressed me so much, i bought a higher end fractal case for myself, which also did not disappoint, I honestly am just a big fan of this case, and will likely be buying another in the near future to put a small home server in.

Good quality but design left room for improvement

Strengths:

Good build quality. Good looking.

Weaknesses:

Very tight fit. Be prepared to grind about 1 cm of the HDD bracket away to let the board slides into place.

Additional Comments:

There is no way to slide an ASUS mATX board in. The fit is very tight and the HDD bracket is only 1 - 2 mm away from the edge of the board after it is slided into place. Whoever deigned this case has never physically installed a mATX board in this. The fit is so tight, I ended up having to grind part of the HDD bracket off to make room for the board to go in without breaking anything.

It works

Strengths:

Has everything you need to get started, dust filter, easy to connect everything

Weaknesses:

Strange way for mounting 2.5" HDD; power LED is too bright and blinds me when I walk by (had to put tape to cover it, but now I realize I can just disconnect the cable for it); my motherboard didn't have USB 3.0 connector for front-panel so I can't use the second USB slot now; front-panel for USB and audio/mic is located on the bottom-side of computer (would make more sense at the top).

High quality, low cost.

Strengths:

Sturdy, well designed, attractive. The design is slightly unusual but functional.

Additional Comments:

I have done a few builds with this case and for the price you won't find a better quality case. For a basic build it is fantastic.
