Summary: For the money, an good buy for a moderate sized gaming rig. Been using this case for over 5 years and found it to fit everything I needed for an excellent gaming rig. Space can be tight and if you plan to run extra drives, GPU'S and such, I may suggest a larger case.
Pros: - lightweight - Enough room for sizeable gear - Decent airflow and lighting - I do like the latches for HD's
Cons: - Flimsy, but expected with the price - Door panel is sharp, watch your fingers - Door panel doesn't sit well
Summary: I bought this case to house a 24/7 media and game server, so I needed something cheap, simple, and relatively compact without all the flash of most modern 'high-flow' cases on the market these days. It serves the purpose wonderfully, keeping my equipment at a relatively low operating temperature.
Pros: Affordable. Lightweight. Relatively compact. Good construction. Good airflow. Plenty of fan mounting points.
Cons: Not very much clearance in certain parts of the case. Can be a tight fit for larger components. Some of the panels are slightly flexible.
Summary: This medium sized case would fit most graphics cards and cooling systems. There are ventilation holes on the front, back, side, and top of the case. I have a Cooler Master Hyper T2 heat sink on my processor with the fan blowing up and out the vents.
Pros: Well ventilated, good cord management options (both sides open), nice looking, great price for the quality and features, good customer service
Cons: One of my front usb ports was not functioning. Thermaltake sent me a new front port center with quick shipping. I swapped it out and it works fine now. Minor hassle but the only "con" I can think of.
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!
