Excerpt: Ok so I bought this case because it was cheap, so I'm not going to moan about the low quality tooless mechanisms, but I will moan about some of the things you wouldnt expect or cant see on the photos. Firstly, the two fan grills kn the top.
Summary: I have several complaints about this case which I wanted to share. I do not believe law suits should be as prevalent, but with this case I think people would have a good case. I had witness who drove me to hospital about 4 years ago, where pushing the metal blank for the CD drive resulted in my...
Cons: dangrously thin metal, can cause motherboard damage by flexing and cut you badly as it did me.
Summary: Add 2x Slimline Scythe Fans to the 2x Top Exhaust Fan mounts and these cool great!!! I put the Blue LED fan, from the rear, in the front instead for an INTAKE and added another fan to the rear where the LED fan was located for a 3rd Exhaust!!
Pros: Great for Large Gamer Builds!!!! I have used many of these cases in the last year! Excellent Air Flow!!! Bottom Mounted PSU!!!
Summary: Overall a good case...but not for anything other than air cooled builds...despite the large 240mm openings on the case top and side. I gave it 4 stars because it was a good case, just not for my needs. It should state NOT WATER COOLING COMPATIBLE in the description.
Pros: Really decent case for the price. Well finished and nice looking. Great for standard air cooled builds on a budget.
Cons: I bought this case fully intending this to be a water cooled build with the Corsair H100i. It was apparent after about an hour of toying around that was not going to happen with this case without modifying the case. Despite the dual 120mm outlets on the case top that match the Corsair H100i radia...
Summary: I would buy this case again for the "value" customer, but honestly going to have the customer's upgrade just so that it is easier to work on.
Pros: Case is lower cost. It is a solid piece. I like how the front bezel is easy to come off.
Cons: I do not like the options for hiding the cables. The gap is way to small. Top screw for securing the motherboard is really hard to get to on some motherboards in order to save space for the fan on the top of the case.
Cons: barely had room for a corsair H60 water cooling unit. bought two of these cases. The intel build could fit the radiator on the top exhaust with difficulty. The AMD build had no place to go, so I ended up mounting the radiator on the side panel - less than ideal, but it works.
Summary: Don't waste your time and money on this case! I've used several Thermaltake cases over the years, and have never been so disappointed with one of their products! CompTIA A+, Net+, Security+, and MCITP certified tech
Pros: looks nice, decent airflow
Cons: Flimsy design, motherboard & case fans difficult to install....had short circuit in wiring which caused frequent shutdowns...this case is now headed to the scrap heap after only 6 months of use! Waste of $50!
Summary: I like the mesh covers on the exposed drive bays, very nice. The case is 1 inch too short: An ATX motherboard comes right to the top of the case, so the top fans hit any connectors or RAM that are on that edge.
Pros: Great airflow Nice paint Sturdy case
Cons: Lack of cable management No 2.5 inch drive bays / adapters for SSD drives Case needs to be 1 inch taller to use top fans with ATX motherboard
Pros: had room for my Coolermaster 212 Evo pretty cheap price
Cons: i couldn't fit my Corsair H100 in the case because of my motherboard (ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0) memory slots i bought this case because after reading up on it i found a few people that had installed h100 liquid cooling systems in the case
